Friday Five | No.17

Happy Friday! Thanks to a trip early in the week thus week has absolutely flown by. I truly cannot believe it is Friday. Although I am not a tiny bit upset about it. Even with the trip it was quite the productive week – very much plan on carrying that over to the weekend. What about you? Did you have a productive week? Any fun plans this week or a productive one on the books for you as well?

As always, to close out the week, my Friday five, five items I am loving this week!

Louella Reese Friday Five No. 17



Budget Friendly Sleeper Dress | Louella Reese Friday Five

Off the Shoulder Gingham Midi Dress

A budget-friendly option to the Sleeper Atlanta dress. Which I have been eyeing in the daisy print for months now but couldn’t quite pull the trigger. When I spotted this under $30 option I scooped it up so I could try out the try before splurging.


Best Clean Beauty Mascara | Louella Reese

Clean Buildable Lengthening Mascara

If you’ve been on the hunt for a phenomenal clean beauty mascara – look no further – this is it! This buildable mascara from Vapour Beauty lengths and defines your lashes. While staying put all day – smudge-free.


mini straw basket bag | Louella Reese

Mini Basket Bag with Leather Strap

A few of you spotted this on my mom earlier this week during our trip. This sweet little basket bag is the perfect size for everyday. The cross body strap makes it ideal for travel and days on the go. Currently on sale – under $40.


brown floral tank top | Louella Reese

Brown Floral Tank

I don’t know what it is about me and brown tops lately but I cannot get enough of them. Immediately squealed when I spotted this one. I love the feminine floral print, peplum detail, and buttons. A sweet tank to wear now and under sweaters into the fall season.


denim babydoll collar top | Louella Reese

Collared Denim Blouse

I mean have you ever seen a cuter denim top? I think not! I imagine it with white linen shorts now, paired with mini and midi skirts + boots come fall and dark wash jeans in the winter. A versatile top you can wear all year round.

P.S. if you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of denim shorts I am here to help! Earlier this week I shared a denim shorts guide – including four high rise styles from Abercrombie. I’m breaking down each style – fit, washes, and overall thoughts. View the Ultimate Abercrombie Shorts Guide here.
