TGIF - 5 Things!

Hoppy, Hoppy Friday! (see what I did there?).  I am so happy that the sun is out and it is almost the weekend!  We have some major fun plans and I am sooooooooooo excited to start the weekend….

A few things that made my week so great…

[1. Nordstrom Rack is having an amazing sale.  If you live in Cincinnati, stop into the one at Rookwood.  Great stuff.  I bought this jacket (below) for only $26!]

[2.  I chatted with one of my sister’s friends last night at the Junior League Fashion show and she told me she looooves the Coordinates bracelets I blogged about earlier this week.  She is hinting for her husband to get it for her with the coordinates of where their daughter was born.  How adorable?  I cant express how good it makes me feel to hear a) that real people actually read this ‘ol thing and b) that she was just as excited as I was about the bracelet.]

[3. Tomorrow my aunt and I are having a 30th birthday party for Jordan & my cousin.  We have a few, fun little surprises but for the most part it will be exactly what they want - low key grill out with their friends.  Beer pong is a must.  Here is a piece of the invite….]

….and more importantly, here is the forecast….

[4.  It is EASTER!  I love this holiday so much and one of my besties posted this adorable pic of her sporting a bunny statement necklace. #necklaceenvyisarealthing]

[5.  I get to spend the weekend with friends & family! I have some of my favorites coming in town this weekend & my grandma will be in town from Wadsworth too.  Can’t beat the family time! (these pics were taken from Easter in 2011)]

I hope you all have a great weekend! XO!

coordinates bracelets

One of the things I love most about my “non costume” jewelry is the meaning behind each piece.  I wear a few bracelets every day (see below).  One was given to me by my parents, one by my Uncle Artie for Christmas, one has 3 stones = 3 sisters, and one reminds me of my friends.

When I came across this company, I knew this would be my next “every day” piece.  Coordinates Collection allows you to put in an address of a significant place and they will engrave the coordinates on a stylish bracelet.  How cool is that?  You pick the place and the metal (rose gold, gold, sterling silver) and voila - you’ve added something special to your arm party.

For me - I would absolutely engrave the address of the house I grew up in (and where my parents still live).  This house has SO many great memories and continues to be a place for new ones. 

What would you put on yours?

XO,

Hillary

 

weekly wears

My aunt and I are throwing a 30th birthday party for Jordan & my cousin next weekend and I could not be more excited!  Jordan was gone most of the weekend at a bach party so it was the perfect weekend to get my running around done :)

[Someone enjoying the sunshine and daffies in the backyard…]

[I stopped into Marshall’s this week and picked up this little ditty.  I love a good jumpsuit…]

[Still on the hunt for a living room rug!]

[Getting ready for a friend’s baby shower Friday night.  Find the shirt here.]

[And out of all of the places to sit…..]

[And I was on my way]

[While running birthday errands I found myself in Nordstrom Rack and half contemplating buying this.]

[Running my birthday errands….]

[Found these adorable closet essentials at Old Navy!  Oxfords were only $12!  Find them here.]

[Getting all ready for my 2nd baby shower of the weekend.  The MOST EMBARRASSING thing happened to me.  I got ready, put on my blue (since they’re having a boy), and went to go pick up a couple of friends for the shower.  I honk in front of the house, call, go knock on the door for what felt like an hour and finally my friend comes to the door and tells me the shower isn’t until Sunday.  Absolute fail….but at least I got pics from my outfit!  Find my necklace here.]

[A little walk on Sunday morning….]

Hope you all had a great weekend! XO
