Friday Five

I’m am so dang glad it’s Friday. It has been a hard week at work, and I am in need of some time to decompress. I’m starting to try to and transition back to working 4 days a week, but it’s hard when I know there is so much to do. But I know in the end I’m more productive when I’ve had time to rest, so Monday I will get back at it hard. Anyway, let’s talk about something other than work!

one

The weather in NC has been absolutely PERFECT! It is beginning to feel like fall —– temps have gotten down in the 50s some this week and only climbing to the upper 70s to low 80s. It seriously makes my heart happy. Fall decorating will be commencing this weekend!

Welp, I did it. I pre-ordered the iPhone 6s. One more week until this beauty is mine! And yes, I am a total lemming. I admit it.

This looks absolutely hysterical! I cannot wait for November when this releases!

I completely forgot I pre-ordered this several months ago! I cannot wait to dig into it this weekend. I loved her first book and have high hopes for the second one.

This video is on point! I’ve always thought BMI was used way too frequently as a measure of health, but this video shows exactly why it is not the best indicator. I’m not saying it should be disregarded completely, but I do think it shouldn’t be the end-all when judging someone’s health.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

This was my first time receiving petite sizes, and I have to say, I was a little worried. I occasionally buy petite lengths, but not often. I’m 5’2″ which is technically petite, but they always seem to be too short (especially pants), so I tend to stick with average lengths. But I might need to start shopping petites more after how well these items fit!

Also, I do apologize for the quality of these photos. I was lazy and used my iPhone instead of my DSLR. Won’t make that mistake again!

Liverpool Anita Skinny Pant | 6 Petite | $78

THESE PANTS. I can’t begin to describe how comfortable these pants are! I could sleep in them they’re so comfy! I don’t normally wear petite-length pants, and was worried they might be too short, but I sent a picture to my sister and she agreed that I can pull them off as “cropped.”

Verdict: KEEP

Papermoon Norris Front Pocket Blouse | Medium Petite | $44

IMG_9559
As soon as I saw this top in the box, I knew I liked it. And once I got it on, it was definitely a keeper. It will be easy to transition from summer to fall by just layering a cardigan or jacket over it. I also don’t have much blue in my wardrobe, so I liked that it would add some variety.

Verdict: KEEP

Daniel Rainn Eliza Crochet Detail Blouse | Medium Petite | $68

IMG_9569
This might possibly be my favorite top EVER from Stitchfix! I don’t even know where to begin on how much I love it! The color: perfect. The pattern: perfect. Fit: perfect!

Verdict: Keep

THML Venita Aline Dress | Medium Petite | $68

IMG_9554
And to round out this fabulous box, a great dress that is comfy, can be worn to work or dressed up for a night out, and fits great! Seriously, it’s like my stylist went through my closet and found pieces that not only I needed, but would be comfortable as well.

Verdict: KEEP

Bay to Baubles Mallory Hammered V Necklace | $28

IMG_9582
I love the simplicity of this necklace, though I have to say, I wouldn’t have kept it if I wasn’t keeping everything else just because I really didn’t need another necklace.

Verdict: KEEP

 

Yep, I kept it all. With the 20% discount and the $20 styling fee credit, it brought the total from $286 to $194.50! For this deal-loving girl, that is music to my ears!

So which item was your favorite?

Friday Five

I was just looking at and I haven’t posted a Friday Five post since July! Goodness, August really was a nightmare… anyway I am glad to be getting back at it!

one

Anyone pre-ordering the iPhone 6s? I want the rose gold one so badly! I’ve got a 5s and have been holding out for the 6s. Now to decide if it’s worth the money (and waking up at 4am). Decisions, decisions.

two

Snapchat. I’m completely addicted to it. I didn’t really get the point of it at first, but I got it just to keep up with my sister. Now I’m constantly on it. So if you’re on there, add me! My username is sophiamarie1213.

My dad is coming to town tomorrow and will be here for the next week! I haven’t seen him since he moved to Chicago in June, so I am beyond excited! 10704441_10100998766091946_3581071226442494434_o

Latest Hulu binge: The Good Wife. I don’t know how I miss such good shows until they’re already several seasons in. And how did we survive before Netflix and Hulu?! I thought cutting out cable several years ago was going to be difficult but thanks to those sites I only missed it for a couple of weeks. Now if I had to get rid of them, I would be in sad shape. And now you know that I don’t actually have a life.

Fall is around the corner! If only September would remember that — it seems to have decided it wants to hold on to the summer heat. 90+ degrees is just unacceptable to me at this point. But I least I found pumpkin hard cider. I’m having to resist drinking them all in one sitting because they are delicious!


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great week!
