Friday Finds || Week 11

Tulips at Green City Market outdoor farmers market in Lincoln Park in Chicago.

I don’t know where the week went! I feel like I blinked and suddenly it’s Friday… But on the other hand, last weekend feels a lot longer than five days ago. That’s how every week has felt lately, though. The days are long and the weeks are short? Or is it the other way around… Days are short and the weeks are long? Who knows, but I do wonder why it feels like that. I took most of the day off work on Monday to hang with friends who were visiting from the East Coast, so maybe that has something to do with it!

I’ve got a busy day today and then dinner tonight (we’re getting Mexican even though it’s St. Patrick’s Day! 😂) and I’m sure we’ll head out with the boys to watch basketball afterwards. No real plans the rest of the weekend, which is sometimes the best. We’ll see where the wind blows! Hope you had a great week and have an even better weekend ahead! xo JRS

On to this week’s finds…

This rug guide from Lulu & Georgia is so helpful if you’re planning out a space!

How cute is Mackenzie in this blue-on-blue outfit?! I could never pull off those bright blue sunglasses, but they look adorable on her. Also adding the bow-tied top to my wish list!

Candy-colored sunglasses are a big trend for spring & summer! I searched for some favorites and found lots of great pairs under $60. They’re such a fun addition to a white dress, a basic tee and jeans, or even just a swimsuit. Highly suggest trying a pair… They’re easier to wear than you think! (There’s one pair that says it’s $79.99, but there is a 30% promo code!)

Also, one of my pet peeves about buying affordable sunglasses is that they rarely come with a case. Found a bunch of cute case options (for $10 a pop!) so you don’t ruin them, bend them, or scratch them when you have to toss them in your bag!

As I’ve mentioned the last few weeks, going through a big podcast phase. I loved this one on Good Life Project with Gabby Bernstein! // PS: I feel like we are all friends here, whether we’ve met or chatted or not. If you ever have any recommendations for things I should check out (books, podcasts, articles, etc.), I’m all ears. Would love for you to send my way! 🙂

Another little tidbit from Gabby .. I really resonated with this new video from her“Acceptance doesn’t mean you have to stick around.”

I just started The Universe Has Your Back this week… I’ll let you know what I think! (I picked up a lot of new books this week… You can see them here! I’ve got my reading cut out for me for the next few months.)

I haven’t bought this new La Mer mask yet, but it’s on my wish list!

How cute are these monogrammed french baskets?!

Tuckernuck’s Spring Break Guide has me adding everything to my cart!

This sleek black & white dress looks gorgeous on Carly!

Dying to make Grace’s Winter Frosé!

I think it’s really cool that Jacey put this out there! Bad habits can be really hard to quit, especially when you have a hard time admitting there is a habit or are hiding the habit.

I could really go for an adult spring break right now! I went to Cabo for a mere 72 hours, and it was such a welcome weather break, but it was a work trip. I had an planned itinerary, I brought my photographer along, I was working while I was there, and I shot about 10 different outfits. Don’t get me wrong, it was a blast and I had a great time, but I could really use a little getaway minus the work!

36 Hours in London with Grace!

A lower body stretch routine with foam-rolling.

A great read and reminder from Blair about compliments!

Have a great weekend! xo
