. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

June 14, 2012

High Five for Friday


shirt: target  shorts: ?  shoes: tjmaxx

1. I've had these shorts for a really long time, but they used to be at least 10 inches longer.
really long shorts and really short legs = really unflattering
I almost got rid of them but decided to just cut them off instead.
I'm pretty happy about my new pair of shorts!


2. Ever since I made my neon shirt I've wanted more neon. 
I got this shirt for $8 at Target last week and love it. 
So much I wore it again this week.


3. I'm super happy about my new nail polish color.  I want jeans this color, but a $2 bottle of nail polish is much cheaper so it will have to do for now. 



I only wish these were my nails.  Mine more resemble the doing of a seven year,
which is why I rarely do them.  

4.  I made this orzo pasta salad a week or so ago and loved it. 
Somehow cooking with orzo makes me feel fancy. 



5.  Chris and I just finished watching the first season of 24 and are ready for season 2.  
I love having a good show to watch episode after episode together.  

Hope you have a great weekend! 


Pin It!

I just finished 24! I loved it! So good :)

I love that nail color too. I believe Target has pants that color. I saw it there not too long ago.

Love your neon top and your sandals!

Have a great night!

I love that mint nail polish. It's a more subtle mint than the color I found. I actually found a pair of mint jeans after searching for months...and then I ruined them in the wash.

I wasn't feeling the neon thing when it started up in February (because all bathing suits must be put in the stores in February, right?), but now I'm loving it. I was thinking that I need some neon nail polish today.

Ok, I love all of your 5 things today! I've been craving some neon lately, but am concerned that maybe I'm too old. Is there an age limit? And, I feel fancy when I cook with orzo too. Or quinoa. Love you sister!

I love the brightly colored and pastel colored jeans that are so "in" this season. I knew I had to get at least one colorful pair while they were "in style" so I can wear them for many seasons to come...but jeans are expensive. I did manage to find a turquoise pair at Aeropostale on clearance for $10! Hurray!

Love all the fun neon! And that orzo salad looks yummy, and very fancy ;)

Happy Friday! Hope you have a great weekend.

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love that neon yellow too! you know you made a good purchase decision when you want to wear it every week!

also, that orzo looks incredible. I wish I was at home this weekend to make it - I'm going up to VA to see the fam. Not complaining though! I will still be eating good food I just won't have to cook it.

Have a great weekend Katie! oh wait, every day is a weekend for you now ;)

You are so stylish! I always love all of your outfits so much. :) And that nail polish color is awesome!

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have that same mint polish and I LOVE it! (so much that I probably need a new bottle soon). I love how you paired the neon top with the grey skirt so the neon is still subtle :) Have a great weekend, Katie!

Yum. I love orzo salad. May have to make some this weekend. Have a great weekend Katie!

Lisa @ Organized Chaos said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have some long shorts that I should cut off too! Thanks for the idea~ I love that nail polish color also, I painted my nails a deep blue this week (a new color)..and although I liked it...my nails were stained a bit even after taking it off! You look cute in the pics as always~

Breanna Hohenstein said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love your outfit and I especially love those tee's!

Betty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Igreat idea for the shorts...I tend to have the same problem. And I agree...there is nothing better than having an entire season of a show to watch when you want. Love it.

LOL!!! My nails are the SAME way...why is that? Is there a Pinterest tutorial on painting nails because this girl needs it! Keep it up with the neon...my fave right now. Have a great weekend!!
