Friday Favs

This weekend MP and I are headed southbound 35 to see Aunt Hal and celebrate the ‘almost’ arrival of MP’s soon to be cousin. They aren’t finding out the gender {and it is KILLING me} so we have dubbed him/her ‘Baby H’. I can appreciate a good surprise, but this Auntie did not appreciate going shopping and not being able to find any cute gender neutral outfits. Alas, good ol’ Nordies saved the day and gifts are wrapped and ready. Josh is staying here to go to another wedding shower for us {i.e., catch up on his sleep and enjoy some peace and quiet}.

I’m linking up as usual with Momfessionals and A.LizAdventures, so here we go.

Friday Favorites 01



This Eliza J dress caught my eye and has me day dreaming about a friends upcoming wedding in San Miguel. It could possibly be the perfect flowy number.  And, I mean…that pop of pink bow! Party perfection. Somebody get me a margarita stat!

Sanctuary Flannel. The flannel addiction continues. I adore this button down and own it in black and white check. Unfortunately, that print is sold out everywhere, but I still had to share, because 1.) It is long(er) and covers my rear in leggings. {not super long, but long enough} and 2.) it is extremely comfy and I feel like it looks cute on. Size Reference: I have a SMALL.

White jeans, Nude heels. Holy neutral outfit bliss. I love these Current/Elliott Stiletto Jeans in white. I have a pair of ‘The Stiletto’s and they fit like a glove. They aren’t low rise, but are definitely a tad lower than some of the pants I’ve been wearing since I had this little (I mean, big) baby. And cuff hits right at the ankle so that you can spotlight that new pair of overpriced kicks you just bought. Size Reference: True to size.

Ok, I’m having a  Kate Spade moment here. I keep eyeing these bags every time I walk thru Nordstrom. I don’t feel like they go with my every day routine since I’m usually hauling around a toddler and sticking a million crumbly snacks in my bag. But, I just keep thinking I want it.  The color is pretty perfect to me. Winter or Spring, AND it’s a cross body. I have so many bags and the one I always use is a tiny LV crossbody because it’s just so easy. Who knows, this one may be added to the collection next.

Front Porch Happiness. Disclaimer: Yes, this wooden monogram from Decked Outdoors is extremely southern, I know. But newsflash, we live in Texas and it’s perfectly acceptable to use it on your front door as long as you don’t go crazy overboard with a super obnoxious ribbon. But hey that’s just my opinion, what do I really know anyways.  I’m ordering the 36 inch in black because I have a red brick home with a white glass front door. Hoping to find a thick black and white striped ribbon to use to hang. I.can’t.wait.

I thought the greenery behind the letters was a nice touch if you can’t bare to have the letters hanging alone. Not a fan of that blue ribbon, however. Just sayin’.

And then there are these sweet as can be mats that I found at Target. The website shows they’re no longer available online, but I did snag one about two weeks ago at the Target in Dallas. Josh wasn’t feeling the red heart, so I opted for Home Sweet Home instead.

Smh, men!


Welp, that’s all I’ve got today! Have the happiest Friday, a stellar weekend, and a partridge in a pear tree. Oh – and someone QUICK tell me the traffic on I-35 won’t be that bad this afternoon. NO?! Sister we are coming for ya!


xx, jv

  1. That dress is gorgeous! I agree with the monogram door decor. I think a striped ribbon would look beautiful. I have a teal Hello mat from Target this past summer and I get so many compliments on it so I am sure your mat will fit in perfectly! Jess at Just Jess
