Happy Friday! I am so ready for this weekend. It was a bit of a stressful week and we are headed out of town this weekend with some friends. No kids!! Whoo! I love my little girl but ready for some adult time with our friends. Do you have any fun weekend plans?

So this week moved to a crawl. Tuesday rolled around it was like "oh no worries, just one more day" except not. My Tuesday looked like this:


How cute is this face? She is really ticklish and D's beard tickles her neck and she laughs pretty good. It's great. However, later in the week she started getting a cold and spit up all of her bottle on at least two occasions. She is usually a really good baby even when sick, but she screamed a bit and it was pretty sad. Lots of sickness going around daycare, so I am hoping a weekend away will be good to heal.

Did you see my Wednesday post? Thursday the weather around here took a turn for the cold, but before that I got to rock my new favorite seasonal transition dress. I styled it for summer, but maybe in a future post I will show how to wear it for fall. 

The giveaway is still going strong! It closes on August 20th so be sure to enter. The winner gets a $100 giftcard, but everyone else gets a $25 giftcard. So really, you are all winners :)

I finally got one of my purchases from the Nordstrom anniversary sale. I got what I thought was my size, but TopShop sizing is weird. I exchanged for the right size and voila! Fits! I have to be honest, when I first put them on I wasn't so sure but then a friend convinced me to keep them and I'm glad I did. I have been a fan of this trend for a while but was not sure I could make it work. These fit a little snug, but they did stretch out to a comfortable fit after some short wear. I like the casual look and the released hem on these. I am not typically a cropped pant-wearer, but I can get on board with this silhouette. They are a higher rise so you can wear them with a more cropped top, and I think that helps to create a more hourglass figure. I paired it with my tank from the Who What Wear collection at Target. I tucked it in and let it out. I prefer it let out, but wanted to show you the rise of the jeans. To keep in the line with the casual look, I added a simple pendant and these black booties. Ready for the weekend!
