What I Discovered on Your Blogs This Week

Happy Friday y'all.  Boy are we ready for the weekend!  Husband has been working crazy hours (long story) that will likely continue until the end of February and Lallie has been on allergy meds for a couple of weeks due to the horrible pollen situation down here right now.  If you have a child on allergy meds, you know that they are NOT good to their personalities!  We are looking forward to a fun weekend at the local children's museum tonight and possibly heading to Disney for the day tomorrow (pending how Lallie feels).

Anyways, I found some really great new things on you blogs this week!

I love ballet flats.  Particularly the J. Crew ($125) and Tory Burch flats ($178) in the gold/neutral colors.  But as you know, I like to Spy It, Buy It, so I recently purchased a similar version from Old Navy on sale for $13.99.  You'll see them in my Work OOTD below.  (Thanks Southern Curls & Pearls and Pink and Fabulous).

I'll go ahead and show my Work OOTD with my cheap knock offs ;)  I'm not a big fan of Old Navy clothes for myself, though I do love them for Lallie. They have cute styles and she's going to destroy anyways!  But lately, I've purchased several of their cute cotton striped dresses for casual days and I've purchased four of these crepe shift dresses (in blue, below, black, hot pink and a blue/green/neutral print).  They are comfy and versatile.

With it I'm wearing a J. Crew necklace (from Lallie for Christmas....good taste), a Stella and Dot bangle and my Old Navy gold bow flats.  Pardon the lack of my head....horrible hair day.  :-)

On Sweet Southern Prep today, I was introduced to Design Darling. I'm loving their monogrammed office accessories!  

Also on Sweet Southern Prep, Emi-Jay Hair Ties. They are super cute, go check them out.

Over on Lily Lemontree, I found some great new reads to add to my Goodreads list.  Particularly Ketchup is Vegetable and Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves.  As a parent, it will be nice to read this book and poke some fun at the every day frustrating, but rewarding.( know...disclaimer) issues of raising a child.  I'm looking forward to checking this one out.

The following is from

If you don’t have anything nice to say about motherhood, then… read this book. Robin O’Bryant offers a no holds barred look at the day to day life of being a mother to three, running a household and the everyday monotony of parenting. 

It’s not always pretty but it’s real. Whether she's stuffing cabbage in her bra… dealing with defiant yet determined daughters… yelling at the F.B.I... or explaining the birds and the bees to her preschooler… you’re sure to find dozens of humorous and relatable situations. 

From the creator of Robin's Chicks, one of the South’s most popular blogs on motherhood, misunderstandings and musings, comes a collection of essays that will not only make you laugh and cry, but realize that you’re not alone in your journey. 
Sit back and relax, pour yourself some “mommy juice,” throw a fresh diaper on your baby and deadbolt the bedroom door to keep your kids out… because once you start reading you'll be too busy wiping away tears of laughter to wipe anybody's butt.

One last little tidbit for the day, I'm looking for a new clutch.  I love these monogrammed ones from White House Monogramming on Etsy.  Of course, I can't decide.  Should I get the cream with navy or the black with pink? Decisions, decisions! 

Happy Friday Y'all!


  1. Old Navy is hit or miss, I find. Every one and a while you can find decent things (like your dress- love!), I do like their flip flops.

    I like the black and, for me, anything white gets dirty in seconds.

    P.S. I'll be in Florida at the end of March! St Augustine =)

  2. love the monogrammed items! have a great weekend!!

  3. I swear, you find the CUTEST stuff!! Thank you for sharing :)

  4. Thank you for the mention Jennifer! I am about to head myself over to Old Navy for those adorable flats! I was so anti-ON until very recently when they really started to offer better merchandise! I love your whole outfit! I also love Emi-Jay's! They don't leave a crease! Have a wonderful weekend! xo
