Friday Favorites



Hope everyone had a fairly smooth week after the long weekend. I can't say I'm fully adjusted after our trip. I didn't overdo it like some people do when in Vegas (well maybe the first night I stayed out wayyy beyond my bedtime), it's just the time difference that wipes me out when I travel from the west coast to the east coast. It usually takes me several days to feel normal again and I'm hoping the weekend will help me accomplish that!

A quick weekend/weekly recap and joining Amanda for some Friday faves.

4th of July
I'm a little late on this but we spent the 4th of July poolside at the Soleil pool in the Paris Las Vegas hotel with some friends. The weather in Vegas was 105+ degrees but we rented a cabana that came equipped with misters, a flat screen TV, lounge chairs, and our own personal server so we were set for the day with a non-stop flow of food and drinks plus complimentary bottles of water and a fruit platter.


Shopping Finds
 Other than some small souvenirs, I really didn't do any shopping on this trip except for finally finding these Michael Kors Chelsea Sunglasses with purple lenses that I've had my eye on for a while now. They're similar to the Ray-Ban Flash Lens Aviators but in my fave color and slightly more affordable.

Summer Drink Recipe
I've been on a serious watermelon kick and this Watermelon Agua Fresca cocktail sounds like the perfect, refreshing drink for hot summer days. The recipe includes an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version for everyone to enjoy.


Summer Outfits
 


Keeping it short and sweet today since I'm lacking sleep and need to catch up with some snuggles with my Lola...


Enjoy the weekend and catch you next week!

  2. Oh Lola!!! I just want to pinch her little wrinkly face! Those summer outfits are so on point, I am in love with all of them! And those purple aviators???? I didn't know that purple was even an option. Those are amazing. I hope that you have a fabulous weekend and maybe get to enjoy some of those watermelon beverages :)

  6. The hotel pool cabana was seriously the best decision we made in Vegas last summer...those temps are just too deadly without it!

  7. I love all of those outfits! I really like the denim shorts with the flower detail on them. Last time I was in Vegas we didn't do a Cabana & just laid by the pool. If I were to do it over again I'd definitely get the Cabana. Love those shades & that drink looks so refreshing.

  10. LOLA! I have missed that puppy face! So cute. I have been following along on Insta and was so jealous of your trip. That is a great pair of sunglasses. I have been toying with buying some new Ray Bans but I may go this route instead. Great tip! Have a fabulous weekend and good luck settling back in. Jet lag is a mofo.

  11. I hope you have a relaxing weekend ahead!

    I look terrible in aviators. I want mirrored lenses but it's not in the cards.

  16. Those purple lens sunglasses are awesome! Speaking of sunglasses...the company that sold those American flag aviators this 4th made some moolah. I've seen them in so many pictures. They are great!

  17. Those glasses are gorgeous but I'd rather have the drink! ;) Pup snuggles are the best especially after being away.
