Friday Favorites: Vacation Getaway Edition

Happy Friday, Friends!

Today, I am linking up with Andrea, Erika & Narci for Friday Favorites.

I hope everyone has had a great week! For me, this week has been a bit of a blur. 
I moved home Monday, worked Tuesday & Wednesday. Packed again Thursday
and today....I leave for FLORIDA! 
I am beyond excited to swim with the dolphins & spend almost a whole week with my Auntie Ba. :) 

So for today's Friday Favorites, I am sharing what I packed :)

Swimsuits are always a favorite. I have way to many of them, but I am constantly drawn to the bright colors. Target especially knows how to get me as I walk through the door!

Here is my newest favorite:
From Old Navy:

I realize this is an Old Navy suit, but when it's cute, it's cute, ya know? ;)

I am loving this floppy hat! I feel like a girl's getaway is practically begging for a floppy hat on the beach. I had some super cash to spend, so I got this baby for about $5! 

I typically can't pull off yellow, but I think this one is a cute option too!

I am so excited to be able to read for fun! This year, I don't have to worry about studying for the GRE or reading articles for my thesis. 
I am currently reading this:
To be honest, I am not sure I am loving this one. It's one of those I have to get to the ending first, before I decide if I like it or not. :) 

And finished up this one last week: 
I LOVED this one. At first, I thought I liked it because it was such a break from research writing. But the more I read, the more I liked it. I am thinking one of  Liane Moriarty's books will be my next pick.

Jewelry is always a favorite. Currently, gold has taken over my jewelry bag. I have a few bracelets that I will mix and match on my trip. 
The Home NC one is probably my favorite, and I picked it up from Boone Belle's on King Street. My sweet roommate Emerald, got the one on the far right. (It's a Costa Rican coin).
The earrings I got for only $8! I loveee them! You can find them in 5 different colors here

My last favorite this week is my new bag!
I got this from the new Asheville Outlets. I have been looking for a bag that goes over my shoulder, and is big enough to carry my diabetes supplies & my wallet, chapstick, etc.  Vera Bradley had just the one.
I have decided that bright colors are my summer love language ;)

 I decided to upgrade from my ol' faithful ziploc to a cosmetic bag for my supplies. It fit perfectly, so I was sold!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I love Liane Moriarty books! The Husband's Secret is my favorite. :)

    1. I loved it! :) She is definitely a new "favorite" ;)

  2. I wish I could pull off a floppy hat...I guess I might be able to, but I've never tried because I assume I couldn't! I read What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty and LOVED it. I just started Three Wishes and I'm intrigued so far. I'm also a big fan of gold jewelry, I never really find myself drawn to silver.

    1. I didn't think I could do a floppy hat either. Honestly, I am still not sure if I can ;) I will have to look into 3 wishes & What Alice Forgot... Thanks for the suggestions :)


Thanks for reading, I would love for you to share your thoughts :)
