Friday Favorites

Happy Friday y'all! Okay I am going to keep this Friday Favorites pretty short and sweet today because it's May and apparently in May we like to make sure at least 20 hours out of the day are consumed with as many activities as possible. 

We've had a crazy fun week full of field days, end of school year programs, sports tryouts, dance rehearsals, a random stomach bug, PTA meetings and post deadlines. On tap tonight is swim lessons and soccer practice/party and around 10p.m. I will crash in my bed before tomorrow's 5:45a.m. wake up call for a soccer tournament. 

Yay for May!!!

Carrie Beth shared this video on Facebook this week and its 100% accurate. 

Now for a little Friday Favorites action. Even though we have been crazy busy, I've still managed to find a little goodie or two here and there that must be shared. Shopping can be a wonderful stress relief sometimes. 

Sorry husband. 

I shared this pic on Instagram stories a few weeks ago, but it bares repeating...THESE SHORTS ARE AMAZING!

I mean once you have elastic waistbands in your life its really hard to go back. The moment I tried on these shorts I bought them in all the colors. 

They are super soft, have a cute little double cut off hem thing going on and most importantly - elastic!! I know I said that already, but listen, I spent approximately three years of my life pregnant and I spend 90% of my days wearing yoga pants. I gave up on the button a long time ago. 

This white tank top also deserves honorable mention. It is so comfy! It is also super cute with its shoulder tie accent and it rings in under $10. I went back to purchase another color, and grabbed Carrie Beth one as well because it is that good. Its the perfect summer staple to add to your wardrobe. 

I'm a huge fan of rompers. I used to wear dresses a lot because they are so comfortable, but one or two incidences with toddlers and showing my goodies to unsuspecting patrons of various public places, I decided to be a little more strategic in my wardrobe choices. 

The moment I saw this little black romper, I knew I had to have it. I loved the slimming tie waist, the slight ruffle sleeve, and the back has a fun key hole opening that you can still wear a regular bra with. I've worn it to daytime functions and to a fun double date night out. 

It's super versatile, and feels like a dream. If it came in other colors I would scoop them up. 

Fit note: I'm a shorty, coming in at 5'1". I would say if you have a longer torso size up in this one. Otherwise it runs true to size. I'm in a 2R here. 

Not that there is a ton of free time this month for reading, but if there is I already have my next Book Club selection all picked out and ready to go! Kristy sent us her latest novel, The Southern Side of Paradise, and I can't wait to dig in! I also now want to head to the beach. 

And when I shared this on Instagram a ton of you asked about my outfit details. Here is a closer look at this super cute floral top.

Willow Park Boutique always has the best little finds, and this tie shoulder tank has been a favorite find. It comes in a few other patterns and I want them all! 

Today marks the girls last day of school! They have a few more mornings snuggling together before their big brother infiltrates their routine. 

And while I love seeing them actually get along (for at least part of the day), I love my new rug and pillows just a smidge too. 

I did a poll on Instagram about this pillows and the only one to say "no" out of hundreds of votes was my husband. Clearly the good people of Instagram have swaying power because...swooning! 

I'll share more on this room later, but for now you get a sneak peek at the new rug and pillow set up

Temps went from cool to sweltering pretty quickly. And if I can't wear my beloved elastic waistband shorts, cut-offs come in a close second. 

These white cut-off shorts have been on repeat since I found them in February. I sized up one for a looser fit (these are a 26), and they are a great length. The distressing keeps them more casual, but that's how I roll in summer. 

This tee is also a quick favorite. I own in it like five colors and its currently on sale for under $5! I own similar tees from J.Crew and Madewell that I love, but for $5 its a no brainer and you can't tell the difference in any way in quality. The only difference I noticed is the neckline is slightly less revealing. Three years of nursing, and well...I'm okay with showing less of what's left.

I throw on some fun jewelry if need be to dress it up, but from now until October this is pretty much the outfit you will see me in... cut-offs, basic tee, and flip flops. 

And if I didn't stress my love for that wardrobe trifecta, here's another example to really drive it home. 

| Shorts | Tee | Sandals | Clutch (similar) |
I snagged these shorts when doing a little stress-relief shopping last week and they are a quick favorite! We both loved the hem instantly! They have the slightest amount of stretch to them. I bought them one size up and they don't stretch out too much. Definitely a fast favorite and they are currently on sale for less than $40! 

This graphic tee is so so soft! It comes in a ton of fun patterns! We really want the flamingo one next! 

Last on my favorites list lately is this fun lobster bracelet! 

We did a fun event with Keep Collective a few weeks ago, and when the coordinator showed us the new summer pieces added to their lines, I couldn't resist! They have so many cute charms, but the moment I saw this lobster with it's adorable little tassel tail I knew I had to have it! Plus those who know me, know anything red, white, and blue is my jam.

That wraps up my favorites for the week (month?!)! Here's hoping we all survive the back half of May together! 

Happy weekend friends!
