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

August 23, 2012

High Five for Friday

tank: maurices (similiar)  skirt: target (similar)  wedges: gap  necklace: NY&Co. ($7)


1.  Outfit confession #1: Thankfully I took this picture this morning because today it was 95 degrees and my school does not have air conditioning.  Which means my hair didn't look anything like this by the end of the day. 


2.  Outfit confession #2: My feet also did not look like this by the end of the day.
Instead they were wearing flats, as I clearly can't handle wearing heels for 8 hours. 

3.  Speaking of 95 degree weather, or actually the opposite of it.
 I am beyond ready for Fall.  All I want to do it wear my new fringe boots.

I also wouldn't mind owning these boots


Or this polka dot sweater.  I'm thinking I'll use some of my Old Navy rewards money for it.


4. A week or so ago I made some chocolate chip zuchinni bread and it was delicious. 
And the fact that there is a vegetable in the name just made it feel beyond healthy.

Recipe here

We can just forgot about the fact that there is cocoa and chocolate chips in it. 
And that I ate at least one whole loaf in a few days. 


5. Last weekend I got to celebrate my friend Jess at her bachlorette party.  
Everybody wore a different color wig - It was so much fun!


Can't wait to celebrate at her wedding on Saturday!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

You are so gorgeous!! Loving your outfit!

That chocolate bread looks incredible!

I have to say that you look hot in that purple wig!

I own the polka dot sweater but in white and black. I haven't worn it yet because it has been too warm!

Those blow fish boots are adorable!

Your blue wedges are to-die-for. I have total and absolute shoe envy going on right now. Plus, I love the different colored wig idea for a Bachelorette party!

Girl, down here in Florida I can't see an end to this hot weather and I'm READY to bust out the fall boots!!!

Amanda Raborn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love this! Your wig is adorable and I saw on your instagram you had to change to flats- props to you for even trying!

I can't believe your school doesn't have AC... HOOOWWW??

I just bought that sweater online!! On sale. ;) great minds. What are old navy points??

Meg Cady said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

NO A/C?!?!?! KILLER.
I hope you are hanging in there... I'm on my last thread of sanity and still have SO much to do before I have warm bodies in my class!

As always you look supa supa cute!

Let's switch schools, friend. I got some great new dress tanks and I'd LOVE to wear them to school without a jacket. I kept my coat on all day.

Hima said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Sweeeeet wig! Not everyone could pull that off, but you did a pretty good job of it! Oh, and those shoes? LOVE. Like, I'd almost maybe wear those to school if I had them. Well, if I wasn't so clumsy I tend to trip over my own feet. I love the outfit :)
Okay, so our school has AC, but here in the Bay Area we do NOT need it! I wore a lace top with a tank underneath to school today, and I was freezing the entire time. For some reason, the teachers just won't turn it off, and I'm cold in every class! Sweatshirts in August in CA? You better believe it! It was 60 this morning!

Happy Friday!

<3Hima

That necklace is gorgeous, I can't believe you got it at NY&co, ahhhh now I must go try to track it down :P And those wedges are seriously so cute, I like the blue color. ME TOO! I am so ready for fall :)

Carly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Your school doesn't have air conditioning?!!?? That's insane!

And I never wear wedges to work, if I do....I regret it by recess!

Have a great weekend my friend!

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Well, hey, at least you tried with the shoes! I know I can't last long in heels so I'll pretty much just wear them to church or to the movie theater--place where I know I'll be sitting most of the time anyways. :P

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the outfit! I cannot believe your school doesn't have a/c! =/

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the outfit! And those boots and polka dot shirt look like must haves! I need to go grab that sweater before they're all gone!

And you sound like me, lol -- I bring an extra pair of shoes with me to work to swap out if I end up standing too long in my heels.

Have a great weekend Katie!!

Mmmm that bread looks amazing! And I love the necklace you have onion the first pictures... adorable!!

The Vintage Modern Wife said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

can you taste the zucchini in the bread? ive heard of several people trying the recipe but i think it'd taste weird with zucchini and chocolate.

Amy said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love those pops of blue and I wish I had some of that bread, its my fav!

So drawn to your necklace - it's gorgeous! I love the pops of blue also (I'm rocking cobalt and orange myself today). I can't wait to try that recipe also..I'm a zucchini bread fanatic but the thought of adding chocolate into the mix makes my mouth water!

My hair NEVER makes it to the end of the day and really for that matter neither do my heels.

I keep a pair of slippers and/or flip flops under my desk and am always in them by lunch time when I wear heels. Then I slip my heels on right at the end of the day before the parents come to pick them up!

Lauren Shaw said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look awesome with purple hair...you give Katy Perry a run for her money : ) Love those boots and you look so cute!

Always Maylee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love wig parties!!! I totally agree that if it has zucchini in the name, you don't have to feel guilty
;)

Tessems said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I saw those sweaters at Old Navy too.

Polka dots.

They're just kind of like a pinstripe blazer.

rxforfashion said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates
