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

January 17, 2013

High Five for Friday


dress: old navy   sweater: francesca's    boots: dsw   necklace: wild about jewelry


1. I got this sweater at Francesca's a week or so ago for only $7.


2.  It was definitely a good day to go because I also found this purse for $12.

3.  Last week every day, a girl in my class asked me to wear my fringe boots so we could match.  She was quite excited when I finally wore them Friday.  I'm not sure if matching fashion styles with an eight year old is impressive though.


DIY Elbow Patch (Felted). CUTE! I have been eyeing the 3 dollar clearance sweatshirts at walmart this week. I bought one and made it into a boatneck. Perhaps i should buy one and make it a cardigan with this on the elbows? I think yes! Perfect Valentine's day sweater!

4.  I've got some high hopes for feeling good this weekend and attempting a project like making a sweater with elbow patches.  It's been too long since I've completed any DIY project. 

5. I am ridiculously happy that it is a three day weekend.  We don't have any big plans and I couldn't be happier!

Happy Friday to you!

I love your entire outfit. Your dress over your leggings reminded me that I had a dress (it's too short) that I needed to pair with my leggings and wear to church! No need in letting it go to waste.

Enjoy your long weekend friend!!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the pop of yellow, it's so cheerful! Are your feet so small you can fit into kid's shoes? Or wat is a coincidence you matched an 8 yr old ;) Happy Friday!

Aw that is adorable your student wanted to match with you! My young clients always love when I wear my Uggs or paint my nails fun colors.. they like to think the adults in their lives are "in style" :)

I love that sweater! Although I don't own any yellow clothes because when I was little my mom told me I shouldn't because my face was too yellow haha!
