Friday Fives

Hey lovies!

Can I have a cheers to it being the weekend?! I don’t know about you guys, but North Carolina is having some phenomenal weather right now. Somethin’ about sunshine and blue skies just puts me in a happy state of mind. 

Here’s what I’ve been loving this week…
1. New Arm Candy

Instagram pic of the newest addition to my jewelry box: a neon pink bling bracelet from J Crew! I’ve been lusting over this bracelet ever since I saw it in stores three weeks ago, and when I got back to the U.S. I was still thinking of it.
I knew I had to go back and get it!

P.S. I couldn’t find the bracelet anywhere online, but it should still be in stores.

2. Oversized Envelope Clutches

… especially this one by Sabo Skirt.

I love how chic it is! And roomy, especially for a clutch. What can I say? I’m a sucker for pink.

3. SNAX!

I’ve found so many great snacks in the grocery store lately.
Example one: Greek yogurt companies keep bustin’ out new flavors.

I loveeee Chobani Pomegranate!

And all of Fage’s new flavors, especially Melon Guanabana (it tastes like it’s straight from the tropics!)
Finally, I found this little gem at Target…

 Hummus and pretzels crisps in one convenient, snack-sized cup.
If you haven’t tried hummus and pretzels yet… oh baby, you’re missing out!

4. Coral lipstick

 I recently bought MAC lipstick in Crosswires and ever since I’ve been obsessed. I’m usually not big on lip colors and was slightly skeptical of how bold it looks in the tube, but I love, love the coral color on my lips! It’s highly pigmented, but the best part is you can adjust the color to your liking – dab a little over lip balm for a soft coral look, or go heavy for a bold hue.

5. The Derby 

Mint juleps and big hats can only mean one thing: the Kentucky Derby.
Tonight my sorority is having my favvvorite cocktail of all time, which we call K-derbs. It’s basically an excuse to wear Lilly (and big hats!) and sip cocktails on the lawn of the Carolina Inn. My favorite band, Liquid Pleasure, will be playing and I’m so excited to shag the night away!

Happy Friday πŸ™‚

Love, Cait

  1. I LOVE those pretzels and hummus!! Soo good. Thanks for the reminder I don't think they carry them in the grocery store but I'll have to check Target now! Also I have to say I'm having a serious love/hate with your blog posts as of late. LOVING all of the warm wonderful posts/picks/ and photos however it's making me insanely jealous of your vacay!! Andddd wishing for summer!! hahaha. Seriously though love your blog! xoxox

  2. I'm on vacay in Chicago right now and the weather is incredible here too!! I'm loving the sunshine and sandal weather so much!! Loving that coral lipstick and that pink clutch. I hope you have a fab weekend! XoXO

  3. That pink clutch looks great!


  4. Those are my two favorite snacks! Loveeee! What a cute bracelet πŸ™‚


  5. I love the pink clutch & your bracelet! Adorable! Your derby party sounds like so much fun!

  6. Lots to comment on here… One – I lol'd when I read the part about greek yogurt bustin' out new flavors. They really are! But greek yogurt is the only kind of yogurt I will eat, so I'm glad. The other stuff tastes fake to me now and artificially flavored. Two – I am sooo glad to see that Target is selling those little hummus things. I am a vegetarian so I need to eat this more and I really like it, but I buy a tub and eat it one time and it goes bad, so this is awesome. and last but not lease, I love Liquid Pleasure! Have fun!

  7. You are adorable. NC weather has been stunning…perfect for a lilly sundress. That big envelope clutch is to die for! The pomegranate is my mom's fav and she has been pestering me to try it. The passion fruit chobani also tastes like the tropics!

  8. Love everything especially the envelope clutch!

    Liquid Pleasure is the best band…yall have fun and take lots of pictures!

  9. ahhh that sounds like so much fun! I have the same J.Crew bracelet and I love it!!

  10. I love that envelope clutch! I am a complete sucker for anything pink! Have you tried the kids' Chobani? It's called Champions, and it's a smaller container, so it's only 100 calories, but it's so good! The Very Berry is my favorite!

  11. my goodness that floral skirt SCREAMS spring!!! absolutely adorable!!

  12. Nice post! I love all the things you posted, the first bracelet is too cute!:) Kisses!

  13. That cocktail sounds so fun! And that hummus/pretzel combo sounds amazing!

  14. Oh, you're going to have so much fun tonight. Love it. I'll be at Carolina Inn next week doing a preview of their spring menu. Have fun.

    I live off of Greek Yogurt.

  15. okay, that's DEFINITELY a fab bracelet you have πŸ™‚

  16. I spotted that bracelet a few weeks ago, and am jealous that you own it! Very cute. I love any excuse to celebrate Derby. I've already started my countdown for the real thing in a month!! Nothing better than Lilly, a huge hat, and a mint julep.

  17. Love your new bracelet!! I've been really wanting to experiment some with lipsticks myself–I love a bright pink lip! Can't wait to see pics from the Derby party!

  18. seriously love everything! those mini hummus packs are so convenient! plus they let me control myself so i don't eat the whole tub hahah. i've had Greek yogurt before so i don't know why i'm so scared..but i keep buying those fage and chobani packs and never eat them in time!! i have a whole pack of the kids version with chocolate chip? now…note to self: go eat them..
