5 on Friday.

1. The T-Shirt Dress.



Friends - I have had a fashion revolution.  It is the t-shirt dress, and it is a one piece wonder.  You're wearing a t-shirt, but because it's a dress - it qualifies in my book as work appropriate. 

And most importantly - it is 100% comfortable.

This week I paired mine with a denim jacket, boots, my Jewel Kade Awakenings necklace & Wish For You charm - and out the door I went.   And because it has short sleeves, when I get a bit warm at work, I can remove my jacket and still feel work appropriate.  I'm on the lookout for more, which brings me to #2.

2. Gap Tall.

This goes hand in hand with #1 -  I have started shopping the tall section online at GAP and it is a game changer.  So far I've only been brave enough to purchase dresses, but I've found that everything I've ordered is longer (Um, hello...yes...duh, Darcy).  So a dress actually hits right above the knee instead of mid-thigh.  Because frankly, mid-thigh is not my best asset. 

3. Gramps & Gram.

Clint's grandparents are celebrating their 70th Wedding Anniversary this weekend in Nebraska, and while we can't be there, we love them and wish them continued years of wedded bliss! 


I just love the expression on their faces!

 4. My Rhinestone & Leather Love Jewel Kade Party


My JK Enchanted bracelet came in the mail this week, and I seriously love it.   Spending more than $10 on a piece of jewelry is hard for me (some might even call me cheap, lol) but I have really enjoyed the quality of Jewel Kade jewelry.  I figure if it can stand up to my lifestyle, and still look good - it's a keeper.  I've had the Enchanted earrings for about 6 months now, and seriously wear them 3-4 days a week, I love them that much.  So, when I was trying to decide what to purchase next, this bracelet was at the top of my list.  It was a bit of a splurge, but I'm so glad it's in my jewelry repertoire!

If you'd like to get a little Jewel Kade love for yourself, I have a Rhinestone & Leather Love party open....once the party closes July 27th, I'll randomly draw a name from those who ordered, and they'll receive the hostess gift - FREE!

Just shop using this link, and when you're done, attach the order to the "Rhinestone & Leather Love" party to be entered.  And let me know if you have any questions ordering - I'm happy to help!  Jewel Kade also has a line called Magnolia Metals that I love. It's very affordable and easy to wear.

5. My anniversary present.



Speaking of jewelry, Clint surprised me this year with a ring for our anniversary, with our brand on it, made by Amy Raymond at Raymond Silver.  The sized, finished ring arrived this week in the mail and I could not love it more.  Thank you Amy for your great craftsmanship, and a special thanks to my special husband for thinking of me.

Have a great weekend friends!
