Happy Friday!!! I don't know about you but I'm so glad the weekend is almost here! One of my best friends and her fiance are coming down this weekend to have some engagement photos taken so I'm crossing my fingers that the weather turns out to be nice on Saturday. I rounded up a few things from this week (and last week since I missed my Friday Five) to share with y'all!
1. More blue & white
I've been loving just about everything and anything blue and white lately for my apartment, and especially in the kitchen. When I saw these fun blue & white Jardin Des Plantes dinnerware sets at Anthropologie I fell in love but at the time I was shopping for my mom's birthday and ended up buying one of the large plates for her. I keep thinking about those plates and bowls from the collection and finally went back yesterday to see what they had. Turns out they only had one of the smaller side plates and bowls left so I scooped them up while I could!
2. Faux floral arrangements
I love having fresh flowers around the house but I realized that I can't realistically always have bouquets in every room. I've seen some great faux floral arrangements lately that look so real and decided that would be the perfect thing for me. I scoured Etsy for some different shops that had just what I was looking for- white hydrangeas for my living room and pink peonies for my bedroom and found Flovery. My flowers shipped quick and were wrapped up really well so I was so pleased when I opened the box! These pink peonies add some great color to my bedside table and are just what I was looking for!
3. C. Wonder chevron
I popped into C.Wonder this week and found two items that I kept thinking about after leaving the store, and both were chevron. Though I feel like chevron clothing may be a little "trendy" now I was loving the way the chevron was done with these items!
How great are these shoes?! They're sold out online in my size, but I may go back this week and see if they have them in stock in the store... navy heels could go with so much!
I love the colors in these chevron nesting bowls! I've been trying to tie together the blue and white in my kitchen with the green and turquoise in my living room and these were perfect (the middle one is a little off my color scheme but I'm sure I'll find a good use for it!)
4. Nautical flag initials
While browsing Coastal Living this weekend, I spotted these personalized nautical flag totes from Skipper Bags. These bags are so cute for the beach/boat and if I hadn't just ordered my Hayden Reis flamingo tote, I would definitely consider getting one! (P.S. They have these wristlets too that I love!)
I love the idea of using nautical flags with your initials because it's kind of like a puzzle to figure out the letters. When I moved to Charleston, I often noticed cars with nautical flag on the front license plates and realized they represented initials- and there an idea was born for Sweet Tea Monograms shirts!
5. Lilly 5x5 book
I have been loving my Lilly Pulitzer 5x5 book lately- it makes such a fun coffee table book and has some great color inspiration! I sat down the other night and browsed through and it definitely put me in a warm weather state of mind!
Hope y'all have a great weekend!
