Friday Favorite Links

Happy Friday! I’m excited for this weekend’s plans, which is being kicked off with a Minnesota Twins game tonight. I’ve been wanting to cross that off my Summer Bucket List for some time now and the weather couldn’t be better for American’s favorite past-time. But let’s talk about these links shall we?

Closet-Can we please bring back bell bottoms? The ones in this picture are to die for. I’m 5’2″ and have muscular legs so the skinny jean fad just hasn’t been my best friend. Since there doesn’t seem to be any inkling that they are fading out I’ve learned which brands are my go-to and how to style them in a way that works for me, but bell bottoms, have always been a flattering fit for me. I’m happy to see them popping back up.

Palette-Is it too early to be searching for pumpkin-related foods? These Pumpkin Spice Truffles look amazing. I always hate to see summer go but honestly I LOVE fall. The colors, the foods, football is back and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays…it’s close to my birthday! Does anyone know when the pumpkin spice latte comes back to Starbucks??

Space-I love everything about this bedroom. The pops of color but also the WALLPAPER! When we finally own a house you better believe there will be wallpaper everywhere. I just love the way it adds color, pattern and texture to a space. I see this as more inspiration for a guest room, a room that I can really be spunky with and take more risks than I might be comfortable with in my own boudoir.

Kiddo-Oliver is building quite the collection of books and I fell in love with these book ends from Anthropologie. It reminds me of this print which ALWAYS makes me giggle. While he has a ton of closet space to hold his budding library, it would be nice to display some of his favorites on his dresser.

***Also, today is the last day to enter the ‘Wasting Time Wisely’ giveaway of a Society6 print! The winner will be announced next week! Just like the blog’s fb page and then share the contest on your own!

    I agree on the bell bottom. I have always loved flared plants as a smaller belled option. Also, does the kiddo have Where the Wild Things Are? Staple. Just sayin. I want those whales for my own books!
