Friday Favorites

Happy Friday y’all! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and maybe finished a little {or all if you’re totally on it!} of your Christmas shopping. I was able to finish up with everyone except Joshua and my mom. Feels good to have it almost done though!! I also wanted to thank all of you that participated in the giveaways my birthday week, I am so happy for the winners and have another FABULOUS surprise for you below!

This week I attended a little festive party hosted by Jaime from Sunflowers and Stilettos. We chatted, drank champagne, and ate some serious sweet treats. As I’ve said over and over blogging has introduced me to some wonderful gals and this party was another perfect example of that! So I wanted to share a few new bloggers with you today as well as some of my usual favorites for another edition of Friday Favorites. If you want to take a look back at past Friday Favorites you can see them {here, here, here, and here} and congratulations to Becky H. for winning the personalized Lilly Pulitzer Tumbler Giveaway!!

1. Looking Linger Love, What I’m Wearing: Burgundy & Navy, so Chassity is one of my all time favorite bloggers. She is just too incredibly cute! So this week when I saw she was wearing my current favorite jacket from Old Navy I kinda loved her even more. Needless to say it was a no-brainer when complying my favorite posts this week.

2. The Classy South, Sparkle, Spice, and Everything Nice, Corbin and I post a link up every month called #MMLinkup (Monthly Monday Link-up) and Corbin absolutely killed it this week! Wearing the most fabulous coat ever {I am obsessed with it!}

3. I Do Declare, Glitz and Glam, another #MMLinkup post. Emily gave me some serious Holiday season outfit inspiration with her sequin leggings. She put her own little spin on them and I absolutely love the color combo she went with!

4. Peaches to Pearls, White Truffle Brussels Sprouts + Goat Cheese, Luisa never fails to make me drool with her recipes! This one though might be my all time favorite. Surprisingly brussels sprouts are one of my favorite veggies and goat cheese is just to die for in my opinion so this combo really couldn’t get much better in my opinion. I cannot wait to give it a try!

5. Sequins and Stripes, Braided Crown, I desperately want to perfect this look! I love braids and when my hair was long I was constantly trying out different braids. Now that I’m growing my hair out again and it’s FINALLY at my shoulders I’m ready to spice up my look and add some braids like this one from Liz.

6. Sunflowers & Stilettos, Harley Liv, y’all these newborn photos are going to melt your heart. I cannot get over Harley Liv’s little crown and bow. You absolutely have to take a look at this little one!

7. Polished Closets, Uniform, over the knee boots + hot pink purse. Yep I’m in. Loving this look from Maggie who convinced me this week I absolutely need to purchase over the knee boots and that I can in fact pull them off, even though I’m a total shortie!

8. Cort In Session, Just Got Jingled, Cortney created a gift guide for all the different personalities on your Christmas list {the prep, man in your life, fashionista, and social butterfly}  and looks incredibly cute in her firm trim vest while doing it!

9. The Pumpkin Spot, The Five Best Lace Holiday Dresses, Becky shares my love for lace Holiday dresses. I truly don’t think there’s anything better {I wore one last night to Joshua’s Christmas party}! They are the perfect mix being feminine, classy, romantic, and festive. Becky complies five fabulous dresses that’ll definitely help with all of the Holiday parties on your social calendar this month.

10. Pretty in the Pines, Winter Skincare Favorites, I’m always a sucker for beauty posts! I love hearing about different products, what others thought of them, and giving them a try myself. I love this post from Shelby and her winter must have skincare products. Might have just given me a new must have item {or two} myself.
