Thoughts For Friday

Oct 20, 2017

Happy Friday!  The kids are out of school today due to a teacher workday so we decided to head to Charlotte to visit my family!  We have not been home in a couple of months so we are excited to see everyone!  My sister is due any day now with her third baby, so exciting!

Recent outfit this week.  I am loving some plaid.

Blouse (also Here) | Earrings(on sale) | Jeans | Sunglasses(on sale)

I finally had a chance to check out Mylk Bar in Mt Pleasant.  It is Charleston’s only eco-friendly nail salon.  They use all non-toxic polish.  How cool is the space?  They do really cool nail art designs too.


My manicure and arm candy (excuse the man hands).

Sunglasses (only $10) | Ring | Watch 

Wearing this super cute tee shirt dress that is under $40 and comes in 6 great colors. I am in a size small.

I tried out Ali Baba’s for lunch.  This was the vegetarian platter and it was really good.  Some of the best falafel I have tried.

Frances Moon insisted on a sleep mask.  Such a little diva.

A new park opened up the street from our house and we have been loving it. Can’t get over how big Sterling is getting these days.

Wearing: Blouse | Sunglasses

I have been wearing my gray vest from the Loft sale non-stop.

Basic Mom Outfit.  These are a few items on constant repeat around here.

Vest (40% off) | Tee | Scarf | Sunglasses | Shoes (on sale) | Jeans | Purse

Use code SNOOPNATTYNAT25 to save on my necklace

I eat on the go often so I make these “adult lunch boxes” so I don’t have to stop and get fast food.  This week was: pretzel thins, pepperoncinis, hummus, Trader Joe’s tabbouleh, and farro salad.

I am working on a post about all my favorite cookbooks but in the meantime check out this new one.  I just picked it up and it is so good.  Gorgeous pictures and recipes.  You may be familiar with Half Baked Harvest from instagram.

We had our monthly girl’s supper club last night and I wore this velvet blouse.  It is a great price point, only $30 right now.  Several of you messaged me last week about my Rebecca Taylor velvet blouse and wanting some less expensive options and this is a great one.  I love the swingy fit and the color is so pretty.

How pretty is my friend Sarah’s dining room?  They just moved in a new house down the street from us and she did such a good job decorating everything.  I Love the wallpaper.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. You should check out Rose Water & Orange Blossoms – it’s a Lebanese cookbook and there are so many items in there that look good!

    That quote made me laugh out loud. Can you fix the link to the sunglasses you’re wearing in the photo with Sterling?

  3. Adrienne says:

    I am obsessed with your friend’s wallpaper! Any chance you can find out the designer??

    Love velvet for the fall! That dining room is sooo pretty.

    I just love your blog! Happy Friday!

    Wallpaper is Rafael by Sanderson in the UK. Uber expensive and hard to buy in the US without a designer to get it for you

    I LOVE all of these outfits + the “adult lunchboxes”. Those are perfect and definitely something I need to jump on board with. Most days I end up with a Lean Pocket (yuck). That dining room is so gorgeous, too!
