Friday 5 Faves

  • Inside Out. I absolutely love Disney-Pixar movies and this one really did not disappoint. If not it really hit home with me and has rocketed to one of my favorite movies of all time. In a sea of fluffy movies with recycled story lines and sequels, this one managed to touch on a very serious subject that can be comprehended by audiences of all ages but did so in a way that was respectful yet entertaining. It never felt cheesy and it really opens up the conversation on mental health. I don't want to give too much away but if you haven't seen this movie yet I highly recommend it for anyone.
  • Timebomb by Tove Lo. I don't believe I had a new favorite song last month but I heard this on the radio the other day and I just love it. It's upbeat and frantic and something I can play on repeat while driving with the windows down. It's a song about the high of falling in love even with the vague idea it won't last but just doing it for the feeling. It's lighthearted and true acknowledging that all love might not last but sometimes you just need to go with the flow and see where it takes you.
  • Maxi dresses. I went on a rampage and I think I have nearly every color out there now for maxi dresses. They are the perfect effortless look that is completely work appropriate but fashionable at the same time and just so easy! It doesn't take much thought to pair a maxi with a light cardigan and I'm good to go in the morning. They are warm enough for those chilly mornings but not uncomfortable to wear as it heats up in the afternoon. I always used to think I was the wrong height for maxis, all the ones I tried were either too long or too short but finally I've found what works for me and I'm happy to incorporate them into my wardrobe.
  • Kate Spade Emerson Place Phoebe bag. I can't tell you how long I've been searching for a new work bag, it's probably been at least 3-4 years now. I've used the same purse through college as a book bag that graduated with me as my work bag and it's well love to the point where the straps have started breaking. I've looked at hundreds of bags at this point and I finally found the perfect bag! It is the Kate Spade Emerson Place Phoebe and it is absolutely perfect. I found it for significantly cheaper off Amazon and immediately snapped it up and then it sat in my room for a full week while I contemplated whether or not I was going to return it but I finally cut the tag and I'm not looking back now. It is the perfect size and style which can easily double as a chic everyday bag. I'm so in love with it and can easily seem myself using it for 8+ years like I did with my last one.
  • Sparkling apple juice. Recently I've discovered my work stocks individual sized bottles of Martinelli's in the snack kitchen and it has become my guilty pleasure treat of the day. When I need a pick me up I grab a bottle of this stuff and I've just been loving it. Usually I'm not one for carbonated drinks, I'm not a fan of soda (except for the occasional Sprite), so my addiction for sparkling apple juice is a little odd but I'm just going with it.
