Friday Favorites: First One for September

Happy Friday, friends! This has felt like the longest short week ever. Just me?! 

I talked about it in this post, but I wore this precious shirt yesterday (along with my Laura Cox Designs earrings) and I just loved it! (Excuse the Instagram snap of it as I was trying to rush out the door to preschool drop-off.) It's adorable on and you can't beat the $13.99 price tag. Since I've been asked: I this this shirt is true to size. I normally wear a small or size 2/4 and I ordered a small in this shirt. 

We have had a very rainy week here and so finding things to do with two rowdy boys has been a bit hilarious. We met one set of friends at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday morning to play and eat lunch and are heading there again today to meet another set of friends. Chick-fil-A for the win! ;)

If you have Amazon Prime Video, you have got to watch "Jack Ryan." It is so good! It gave me a bit of anxiety, but Brandon and I really enjoyed watching it and have been going through two episodes a night since Wednesday night. It's a mix between 24, Zero Dark Thirty and House of Cards...if that makes sense at all. I love John Krasinski, too! 

I have absolutely loved the Duchess of Sussex's recent two outfits during her latest appearances. That girl can rock a LBD and a pantsuit (and probably a paper bag, to be honest). She is gorgeous!

Brandon and I are still on a major "need to update" stage with our master bedroom (and many other rooms of the house, to be honest). It's just so expensive and I feel like money is just flying away left and right when I redo a room in this thing always leads to another, am I right?! Anyway, here are some of my recent inspiration photos from my "Master Bedrooms" board on Pinterest (because of course). Clearly I love white, open and airy!

  1. Chick-fil-a is always a good idea! Decorating rooms always blows my mind with how quickly things start to add up. We are finishing up Camden's big boy room this weekend (whew) and then I need to start working on updating the nursery for baby girl! I guess we'll get to the master (and bathrooms and laundry room)...some other time, lol. It's never ending! Love your Pinterest finds!

  2. We are still very much working on our home too. We have so much done in the living spaces but our rooms and the guest room is a work in progress.

    I love those earrings and have been adding fun earrings to my collection. It's a fun way to add personality to an outfit.

  3. We're in the middle of renovating and the unexpected expenses are CRAZY! One thing always leads to another.

  4. Yes to Jack Ryan. We finished it last night and loved it. I'm happy to see Harry and Meghan getting out more lately, and can't wait for Catherine to finish her maternity leave. Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Can you give me some tips on how you get volume in the top of your hair??? I flat iron mine most of the time but it definitely does not have any volume at the top. Love that shirt!! I am due to get my Stitchfix box this month so if I don't keep anything from that I will definitely be ordering that shirt. Those bedrooms are beautiful!! We need to update our room also.

  6. I loved that Tuxedo dress she wore! I feel the same way about decorating, probably why I put it off so much

  7. I thought Jack Ryan also had a bit of Homeland to it as well! Super cute top - will definitely need to check it out! Have a great weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  8. I can't wait to watch Jack Ryan--I love John Krasinski!

  9. I've heard such great things about Jack Ryan. And love all of your master bedroom inspiration. Ours needs some love, too!

  10. I love that top - what a steal!! You look great! We are obsessed with Jack Ryan over here. Trying to pace myself because I look forward to watching it at night :)

  11. We binged Jack Ryan and Loved every minute of it.
