Five on Firiday || Labor Day Weekend


September 4, 2015

ONE|| TRAVEL TIME. Because I am leaving on a jet plane TONIGHT with the three best friends that anyone could have… Here comes the Grunkes and the Stonekings and WE ARE OFF TO MIAMI!! 
I’m not going to candy coat it… I desperately hope we see some celebs, find time for major crazy people watching on South Beach [hello Speedos] and of course all the fine wining and dining and plenty of adult fun with our favorite dynamic duo. 
The couples who play together stay together, right?!?!?! We have been itching to plan a trip for just the four of us and I am thrilled we are FINALLY doing it… hasta la vista amigos! 
Of course I’ve been in shopping mode the past few months trying to find the perfect ensembles for our couple’s trip and I started my packing process last night after putting the girls to bed…packing and unpacking and repacking to make sure I am all set! Here are five [or so] ensembles that are packed and ready to go for our long Labor Day weekend adventure….

Tie Dye T-Shirt Dress || Steve Madden Sandals [sold out] || Mint Clutch || ForeverXX1 Blush Tasseled Statement Necklace

Lizard Thicket Royal Blue Dress || Franco Sarto Gustar Sandals || GiGi New York Orange Clutch [no longer available/[similar] || Neon Tassel Necklace || Kendra Scott Corley Earrings in Chalcedony

BCBGeneration Black Overlay Romper || BP Black Wedges || Gray Snakeskin Clutch || Kendra Scott Gunmetal and Jade Rayne Necklace || Golden Stella Sequined Bib Necklace

White Floral Romper || Gianni Bini Wedges || Turquoise Agate Pendant Necklace
VS Pink Bikini 

TWO || Minis Off to Mimi and Paps. As much fun as I’m sure we are bound to have, there is no doubt in my mind that CC and Nugget will be having their own version of paradise over at Mimi and Pappy’s playhouse… non-stop playtime with Bella, adventures to the neighborhood pool, family cookout for Labor Day, and all the snacks, goodies, and ice cream they can handle! I think spoiled rotten is an understatement! A big thanks to the grandparents for having our girls over this weekend… I cannot wait to hear Caroline’s breakdown of all the daily events! And P.S. how would I make it without FaceTime??

THREE || IT’S FOOTBALL TIME IN TENNESSEE. Can you believe it?? The smell of tailgate food, the cheers from the band playing, and as much football as our guys only dream of! That’s right, it’s football season again… the time when our friendships fade for football rivalries and trash talk, sad but oh so true. Hoping Butch is going to do well this year with the boys in orange!! Cannot wait for some weekend travels to Knoxville coming up to see our beloved VOLS… oh yeah, and Go Big Orange! 
FOUR || Sugar Bit Trunk Shows. After numerous requests from out-of-town friends and shoppers to take my beloved children’s shoppe on the road, we are heading BOTH west and east this fall to host trunk shows for all things fall and holiday! I’m so excited to come to Memphis and Knoxville and to spread the Sugar Bit love to old AND new customers… interested in attending? Details below and you can email us at customercare@shopsugarbit.com for all the specifics! Would love to see some of your beautiful faces 🙂 
FIVE || Successful Women and What They Do. I stumbled across this article earlier this week and bookmarked it immediately… they reached out to 10 highly successful women and had each of them share their morning routines. Interesting read that highlight’s influential ladies like Arianna Huffington, Anna Wintour, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Victoria Beckham, just to name a few. Funny to see the things you’d expect and the things that maybe us “normal” gals need to take more time for during our early bird rising sessions. 
That’s all I have for today my friends…. I am sure loads of you will be soaking up the last rays of pooltime sunshine this weekend, indulging in family and friend gatherings, maybe checking out a few sales, and watching football morning, noon, and night right?? Whatever you do, I hope you have a wonderful LONG holiday weekend!! And be sure to link up below with April and all the other gals participating in Five on Friday… cheers!

    All of those outfit picks are SO pretty!! Has me wishing that Summer was longer and Fall wasn't right around the corner

  2. Meredith says:

    Good thing my husband doesn't follow blogs, he'd be dying for that coozie. Maybe its a bit girly but perhaps I'll snag him one (for me). I'll also take all those oufits. We're heading to Vegas in November and that looks like a great way to plan my outfits!

  3. Erin Ressler says:

    I didn't see the link to that article in your number 5! I would love to read it. 🙂

  4. Megan says:

    Ahhh, I cannot WAIT for college football tomorrow! Too bad I work all day. 🙁 But luckily, I can sometimes listen to headphones at work, so I've already downloaded the ESPN Radio app in anticipation. 😉

  5. SOOO many cute outfits!! 🙂 xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  6. Tess says:

    Yay!!!! Have a blast on your trip, sounds so fun and I love all of your outfits (especially those first two swing dresses). We'll be rooting for the vols from the west coast! Xo

  7. Have so much fun in Miami!! Love your outfits! Love that koozie as well! Go VOLS!

  8. Great outfit!!! Have so much fun!
