Friday Favorites #4

Wowzers, we are wrapping up January already.  Time flies when you’re having fun, am I right?  I hope this day finds you happy and well and if not I hope you can do something to find joy.

My favorites for this week in no special order are of course all over the place because that’s how I roll!

First up, on Wednesday I shared two ways I wore a graphic tee last weekend here. While I’ve always enjoyed reading graphic tees when other people were wearing them I didn’t always feel comfortable wearing one myself. I’m seeing more and more with such positive messages that I need to show a little restraint before I buy them all! Seriously, check out this one in plus size and this one in black. I have it in white and love the positive message!

My second favorite comes in the form of my desk calendar! Once I knew I would be working from home I set my sights on finding something that would not only motivate me but crack me up a little too. I settled on You Are A Badass because I knew I’d have to step way outside my comfort zone to adjust to this new job. What I have found has been more than I could hope for; each day is inspirational and there are fun puzzles and jokes too! Shop You Are a Badass 2019 Day-to-Day Calendar“.
Check out what was waiting for me on Wednesday:

Third, one of the reasons I love reading blogs is for inspiration. Particularly when it comes to getting dressed. Last Friday I had to take Collin to get his wisdom teeth cut out and after reading my sweet friend Andrea’s post here I knew exactly what to wear! I learned a long time ago that even if I had to show up somewhere early I still WANTED (not needed) to look put together to feel my best. So here’s what I wore to Collin’s surgical appointment and then came home and worked in the rest of the day:

If you haven’t jumped on the mixing-brown-and-black bandwagon yet you’re missing out! The two play well together, especially when you have something like leopard to add in to the mix.

My #4 favorite this week is my new Adidas Gazelle sneakers I bought for Christmas. Not only are they super comfy and stylish but they’re PINK! They run large so you’ll need to order a whole size down. They make me smile!

My #5 favorite this week is my new sweater! Last weekend I went to return my OTS sweater and found this one instead. Darn it all, Loft just had to have 50% off everything the day I went in so you know I left with a bag. Here’s the deal though, this sweater is lightweight and my favorite color. It’s also great for Valentine’s Day. Check out how I wore it on Wednesday when it was cold (okay 60 degrees but that’s freezing here!).

Thanks for stopping by today, I LOVE that you are here and reading comments and responding is definitely one of my favorites! If you haven’t already, please sign up to follow me by email so you never miss a post! Make this weekend wonderful!

XO,
Kellyann

      Love Graphics sounds perfect – so much good stuff out there and this sweater is so fun! When i saw that Wednesday wisdom it really resonated with me too. This has been such a difficult year (well 2017 I mean,lol). My feelings have not only been hurt at times but people I NEVER thought could be so cruel to me were – and I am way too sensitive for that! I’m on the mend and God is good. So excited for your news next week sweet friend! If your weekend is even half as fabulous as you are it will be amazing for sure- go get it, girl!

      Thanks Jodie! I am loving the LOVE sweater! Hope I can wear it after V-Day without looking like my sweater expired, ha! Sometimes when I wear emerald green I’ll hear someone say, “Is it St. Patrick’s Day?” Ugh! People! No, it’s called fashion!
      Have a wonderful weekend!

    I loved BOTH of the Badass books, so I probably need to get that calendar! What a fun way to get a little motivation each day. Love all of these cute looks! Perfect sweater for Valentine’s Day and who can resist 50% off?!

      Clearly I cannot resist 50% off, hahaha! I never read the Badass books but I need to. Never realized how insightful the daily messages could be!
      Have a great weekend!

      Yes, the camo pants really do take the place of denim and they’re lighter weight which will be great once it warms up here!
      Thanks Cheryl!

    Well you do realize I went to Loft on Wednesday to try a bunch of stuff on for a post and you just know I tried on that cute Love sweater. I swear, I am always jogging right behind you trying to catch up…LOL. I love the whole brown and black thing. You girls are right, it’s a great combo and YES, throw some leopard in and whoop, whoop, you got a winner. I could have told you you were a Bada$% without the calendar. LOL!!! Have a great weekend sweet friend. Lots of love coming your way!

      I’ll bet you were adorable in the sweater! Did your cowl neck tunic come yet? I took photos today, while I was working, lol. I’m loving the flexibility of this new gig. I do need a good pep talk especially as I am talking to parents and acting like I know what I’m doing, haha!
      Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    I love to style brown and black together, too. I just love that duster look with the leopard scarf… you def. don’t look like you’re taking your son to the dentist, you look like you’re going out to lunch or somewhere fun! 🙂 I hope he did well with the procedure! That love sweater is so pretty! I also love the bad ass calendar, lol. You are enjoying your new job too much. 😉

      Oh yes, I am so enjoying the new job! So flexible and freeing! Thank goodness my son is healing well, still a bit swollen but doing much better thanks. The duster was a bit glamorous for the appointment but it kept me warm so at least it was functional.
      Hope you have a wonderful weekend friend!

      Thanks Lisa! It’s a fun sweater I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards but at 50% off I knew I could play around with it. Have a great weekend!

    You sound like me. If I have to be somewhere early, I like to look my best so I feel my best (and feel more awake). Hope the surgery went well and recovery is quick! I love pairing black and brown together. It’s such a chic, classic combo! Have a great weekend Kellyann!

    I think I’ve mentioned that I love a graphic tee. And with funny or positive messages? Yes, please. I mean, they’re my uniform on the weekends.

    Those sneakers are cute. I’m in the market for a pair. I’m torn between Adidas and Converse. I like them both. Oh, and Keds has a pair that I’m crazy for too, but I can’t get all three. I want them to wear with a pair of faux leather leggings that I bought.

    That sweater is adorbs! Love the color and how you paired it up with the striped blouse. Just cute.

    Funny that you mention the whole brown black mixing. I used to have a hard time mixing black and blue. Like, seriously, why? Those colors pair beautifully together.

    Anyway, hope you have a great weekend.

      Thanks Daenel! Isn’t it funny how we just sometimes can’t get past doing something, like mixing colors and then when we do it’s like, “duh!” I felt the same way about black and blue too. Also mixing different metals like gold and silver. Oh goodness I think it’s just our generation. I’m not so sure today’s girls think the same way!
