Friday Fives

Hello loves! It’s Friday, and you know what that means… time for Friday Fives!
1. Please order these shoes.
When Emily at {The Sweetest Thing} posted about {these shoes} from Torrid, I knew I had to get them. They look just like a pair of Valentino’s that I’ve been dying over – of course, without the crazy expensive price tag. They fit true-to-size, so order your normal size!
Here’s how I styled them for work this week:

2. DIY gold vases

Isn’t this {DIY gold vase} just precious? I am currently looking for ways to decorate my apartment without spending a lot of money. This craft seems super easy, but look incredibly chic.
3. New Arm Candy

I picked up this white chain link bracelet from J.Crew last weekend. It was on sale, plus 25 percent off of the sale price. I just couldn’t resist!

I also picked up this perfect, simple tunic.

4. Clean Eating

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I’m a huge proponent of clean eating – eating as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible and limiting processed foods. The company I work for recently signed up for a Farm to Table program that delivers fresh vegetables from a local farm each week. This was yesterday’s delivery: zucchini, cucumbers, blueberries, green tomatoes and potatoes. I am so excited to eat healthy all week long!

This is another example of “clean eating” – one of my breakfast smoothies from this week. This one had 1/4 cup of organic cherry juice, 1/4 cup coconut water, 1 tsp chia seeds and 1 cup of frozen berries. Delish!
5. Blogger friends!
I recently met up with Megan from {For All Things Lovely} for a coffee and dinner date. Is she not the cutest thing ever? She is so sweet in person and seriously has THE best style. If you’re not following her, you need to be! Oh and look out for a blog collab in the coming weeks πŸ˜‰
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I’m headed to Winston Salem after work to meet up with some of my sorority sisters from college. Does anyone have any fun plans?
Love, Cait

  6. Have a fabulous weekend! Love your J. Crew finds!



  7. These gold vases are on my to-do list for this weekend, too funny! I fell in love with these when I saw them on Pinterest. I bought the vases at the Dollar Store and they look just like the ones in the photos. I am hoping mine turn out ok, can't wait to see how yours turn out!


  8. Oh no! Those heels are only left in size 10 or bigger. I'm so bummed…I should have gotten them when you first tweeted about it!

    Checking out Megan's blog immediately! πŸ™‚

  9. Thanks for the heads up on that bracelet! I've had a crush on it, but didn't want to pay full price. I'll have to stop by J.Crew today to see if it's still there!

  13. What a great find on the shoes!! Love them! Thank you <3

  14. Great photos! I almost had a heart attack when you said they have these shoes at Torrid. I have been wanting them forever! They are so cute and I cant even consider the hefty Valentino pricetag.

  15. Love your arm party! And I totally pinned that vase a while back, I really want to do that with one of my vases!


  16. Love that vase!!! Bought those shoes a few weeks back and love them!!

  17. You are too cute and I always love all of your outfits. Sometimes you have me thinking, OMG I could wear that! And it will be something I might have not had the guts to try otherwise. But you make it look so good without being "too much". LOOOOVE those shoes and may have to order some! /

  18. I enjoy reading a lot and your stories are worth reading, nice blog, keep it up.
