Friday Fives

EEP it's Friday! *happy dance* Here's what I'm loving:

One: J.Crew Factory

I recently picked up this {gingham button-down} at the outlet store and can not get enough of it. It's super, super comfy but also very versatile - I can dress it up or down. 

Here's how I styled it for work on Thursday:

It also looks perfect with jeans, any color skinnies, or even as a bathing suit cover up. I love.

I also bought this {colorblock dress}. It might not look like much on the mannequin, but this baby is so cute on. I plan on wearing mine out with wedges and a cute handbag. 

J.Crew Factory also sells this {chevron maxi dress} but in a slightly different color. I bought this one last summer and it's still one of my favorite dresses in my closet. So comfortable but also effortlessly chic.

Two: Peanut butter banana smoothies

Y'all know I've been on a smoothie kick lately, but this thing is to die for. It tastes sinful - like a peanut butter chocolate banana milkshake - but it's actually incredibly healthy.

In a blender, mix:
1 frozen banana
2/3 cup chocolate almond milk
2 tablespoons {PB2}
1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
Handful of spinach

I topped mine with 1 tablespoon coconut flakes and ate it with a spoon. So delish!

Three: Greenville's new rooftop wine bar

I'm obsessed with {Sip}, Greenville's newest wine bar. It's on the roof of a building downtown, so I love going simply for the view! (Plus I'm a total wino)

The above is a picture from my friend's instagram (yup, that's me!). They have comfy couches everywhere and huge wine barrels throughout if you want to place your drink down.

Four: New spring goodies

Nothing says spring like a new pair of sunnies (these are Nine West), Essie polishes in {mod square} and {turquoise & caicos} and some {sparkly sandals}.

Five: The beach!
I am aching to go to the beach!! The beach is my happy place, and all I can seem to think about lately is donning a bikini and floppy hat and laying out in the sand all day. My family is headed to the beach for a week in May and I've already started planning my outfits for each day/night. Am I crazy? Someone please tell me I'm not.
What are you guys loving this Friday?
Love, Cait
