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

September 27, 2012

High Five for Friday


dress: Eshaki   shoes: gap  necklace: ebay  jean jacket: old navy 


1.   I won this dress from eshaski from a giveaway on my good friend Alison's blog.
This is the first time I've wore it and I have to say I that I LOVE that it has pockets, but I don't love the length.  I feel like dresses this length make me look short.
I'm trying to figure out other ways to wear it.  Especially in the cooler weather!
Suggestions? 

2.  We have been taking advantage of the start of Fall with some delicious Fall foods. 
Like grilled sandwiches, chili and caramel apple cake. 


3.  As the weather gets cooler, I'm excited about getting out some of my Fall shoes.  I can easily spend a good amount of time browsing through womens shoes online looking for ones I want.  I see bloggers wearing cute Fall wedges all the time, and I want to copy!
Here's a pair I wouldn't mind owning:

                                                                    wedges shoes                                                             


4. Let's just start this number by saying how much I love the show Parks and Recreation. 
And am so happy it started last week.  
Ann was wearing this owl print shirt  in the episode and I want it. 

Hanalei Buttondown, Owls

I clearly still have an obsession with animal printed things.  

5.  I have big hopes of going to the pumpkin farm this weekend. 
Eating apple donuts.  Drinking apple cider. 
And taking pictures.  

Here's a favorite from two years ago.  


and now I kind of miss my blond hair.  

Happy weekend friends!

Aww you were cute as a blonde! I mean, I like the brunette too, but the blonde is cute! Love the shot of you guys at the pumpkin patch. :)

I think the dress is gorgeous! That food looks delish! Also, I really like your hair cut and color in that picture!

Crystal Ridlon said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Such a cute dress! It looks right on you, but oh how it would not work for me :) I can't do stripes of any kind! Cute!

J and A said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Dress looks great!!! Maybe a belt to break it up? Love the pumpkin shots. I wish we had pumpkin patches!!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ahh I can't wait to go to the pumpkin farm! We went for the first time last year and had so much fun. I like the dress on you! If you don't like the length, maybe get it hemmed? I don't know if that would fix it but that's about the only suggestion I have lol.

I know you don't like the length but it looks super cute on you! don't you love winning stuff?!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love dresses with pockets too. I really want a pair of booties. I looked for those ones you got at Target and they're not on clearance here. Boo.

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I also need a good pair of fall wedges!

Ok that dress is super cute on you and I can't believe you won it!!!!

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

It does not matter what color your hair is, you are cute, cute, cute.

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love this dress! You could always think about wearing it with tights and boots for a long line... but pockets make it a winner all day everyday!

What a beautiful dress! I actually love the length...it has a vintagey, feminine vibe. And we too are embracing fall foods...caramel apple cake sounds delish!

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You always look so gorgeous in any outfit! And you totally made me really crave some apple cider...I've got to start checking things off my fall bucket list ASAP!

Montana said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love this dress, but I completely understand about the length, everything makes me look short!
I hope you have a wonderful Friday!!

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I think the dress length looks great on you! You definitely pull it off. If you wanted to you probably could hem it like an inch and that would change it a bit.

I missed Parks & Rec last night but I'm SO happy it's back! Can't wait to watch the episode.

I like your hair brown and blonde! That's such a cute picture of you and Chris with the pumpkins. I want to go back to the pumpkin patch too this year! Happy weekend friend :)

Carly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That picture of you two is adorable!

Can you wear the dress with colored tights and pumps? You'll look taller, and then it can be worn for fall!

You could wear the dress as a skirt with a sweater over it! I LOVE grilled cheese and tomato soup too. Have a great time pumpkin picking! Hoping to do that soon too :)

Love the dress, but I totally love your hair blonde too! You look great brunette as well, I just love blonde hair since I can't pull it off! LOL....the picture in the pumpkin patch is super cute! I can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch, my girls bug me all the time about going! Anywho...love your blog!

Love your outfit! So cute.

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love those blue wedges, girl :)
And the fall wedges that you posted about...CUTE! I almost bought some from Target yesterday, but it's still in the 90s here...yikes!

Enjoy your fall inspired activities this weekend!

I love that last picture, so cute! So dresses this length also look really awkward on me. If it were me, I think I would consider getting it shortened. I think you look great in it, but if you don't feel amazing, then you might as well change it to something you would love to wear! :)

christina said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have a dress from them too! i love the pockets!! I like the length I can bend over without worry :) It looks great on you!

Erin Rethemeyer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hey girl! I actually like the length of the dress but I think you make a good point. Maybe tights and higher black booties would lengthen it!
I am pretty sure I have not been this excited to go to the pumpkin patch in such a long time!

I think the dress looks cute, but I don't like hems that come right below my knees either (and I'm not short). Could you maybe take the last row off (the purple one)? Then hem the black row? You might be able to hem the purple row up without cutting it off if you don't want to commit to that and see how it works? I don't know. Hard to tell in the pictures if it will work or not, lol.

Happy weekend!

Janna Renee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates
