friday five.

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with Christina, April, and Natasha today to share five things on my mind:
recycled pics from instagram
ONE: H takes his fellowship board exam today!! He has been studying for it for months and it's his last major test for the next 9 years. I am so happy for him and we're going to celebrate with burgers at Poe's and a cookie cake with extra frosting!! On Saturday we're meeting up with Violet's boyfriend at the pumpkin patch. And if the weather cooperates we're going to the beach on Sunday :) 
TWO: I'd love to add a few new books to our coffee table: Humans of New York Stories (currently 40% off!), Styled by Emily Henderson, and Audrey at Home: Memories of My Mother's Kitchen (includes recipes!).
STS Blue Nikki Flare Leg Skinny Jean (under $60) / Joe's Flawless Icon Flare Jeans (I have a pair of skinny Joe's jeans that I love, so I want to try this pair) / Treasure&Bond High Rise Flare Jean (I really like this dark rinse) / Paige Denim Transcend Canyon High Rise Bell Bottom Jean

THREE: How do you feel about flares coming back into style? I love the trend, so I'm really excited to pack away my skinny jeans and give my ankles a breather. I think I even want to try a pair of high-waisted flares (yep. like my mom wore in the 70's!) Joanna from Cup of Jo sold me on the trend -- she loves them and says: "They suck your belly in. They don’t stretch out as easily. You never get plumber’s crack!" sounds good to me.
FOUR: Eventually I want to get new sheets for our master bedroom and I'd love to get something printed and fun. I love this set from Dwell Studio: block print floral sheet set (just not the price). I'm also considering the organic mini diamond print from West Elm or simple and simple and affordable stripes from Target.

Have a great weekend!

  2. Ah I don't think I'm ready to pack away my skinny jeans, I just can't get on the flare trend because I can't wear boots with them! They would look so good on you though! Excited to see you guys tomorrow, enjoy Poe's!!
