Five on Friday…Shopping Delights


June 20, 2014

One. Style Profile…Summer Concerts in Music City
A few weeks have passed since the infamous CMA Music Festival and then Bonaroo went down last weekend in neighboring Manchester, but it’s high season for concerts in Music City. From early evening outdoor fun at Arrington Vineyards to other amusements at Crockett Park each week, it’s easy to find live entertainment!
Whenever I go to a concert, there are two musts that are required when I’m looking over outfit choices: comfort and style. Let’s face it, us southerners are notorious for our love of cowboy boots and I believe they absolutely go with everything, yes even in the summertime.
Today I’m showing off some cute boot and bootie styles that are the perfect staple to add to any ensemble for concerts, festivals and fairs, trips around town, and anything else you’ve got going on during the warmer months. 
These Madden Girl and Diba varieties came from one of my go-to stores, Off Broadway Shoes. With locations all around Nashville, you’re destined to find the perfect pair for whatever the occasion. Even better, their website now lets you shop online so if you’re not local, you can take advantage of their amazing deals on shoes.

New Summer Staple: Crossbody

It’s been awhile since I have treated myself to a new purse, so last week I noticed Francesca’s was having a handbag sale with all marked 30% off, so I stopped in, and took advantage. Let’s face it, usually I throw my wallet in the girls’ diaper bag so this is a treat. You can find the purse here, and still save 30% too!

Three. Things Break…Accidents Happen

I can’t blame this one on the hubby or the girls, because mama did this one all on her own. A few weeks ago, I was getting something out of one of the top kitchen cabinets when I knocked over my sugar dish and it smashed into pieces. Well, there went that wedding gift. Now I’m lusting over this adorable sugar and creamer set from Anthropologie. It’s green and I love the pattern and I think introducing color into everyday china and dishes is fun…why not! This is totally going on my birthday list. P.S. Anthro is having a major sale right now, too!

Four. Pretty Baubles
I’m a jewelry junkie and I have a good collection to prove it…I love mix and match pieces that I can wear with a number of ensembles and I was recently introduced to Dolce Ave, a sweet collection created by my blogging friend Megan from Hello Newlywed Life. She has an eye for styling jewelry and these timeless goodies will look good in any girls’ closet. I am wearing the Black Agate Necklace and it goes with everything! 
Five. Weekend Family Fun
Jeff has been traveling a lot this week and his girls are itching for him to be home!! He just loves when he walks in the door and Caroline runs to him and says “daddy home, daddy home”…nope, nothing sweeter! Between a playmate’s pool birthday party, chores at the house, and time at church, we are hoping for a relaxing weekend spent with our little family, soaking up some sun, eating popsicles on the front porch, and savoring all the goodness of summertime. Love to you all and happy weekend.
