Weekend Notes: 01.31.15

Skirt The Rules // Leopard Office Lamps

I feel like the timing of this week was off.  My office closed down early on Monday and didn’t re-open until Wednesday because of Winter Storm Juno.  The blizzard turned out to be a bust, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a snow day.  As for this weekend, I plan on sleeping in, catching with a few friends and trying out a new surfboard-based fitness class (should be interesting).  So without further ado, here’s what’s on my radar this weekend:

Do trends still exist?  I thought this was a pretty interesting read on how social media has affected the longevity of trends.

The prettiest little bow blouse I ever did see.

So sad to see another brand bite the dust later this year, especially with pieces like this dress or this bag that are so on point.

Helpful tips on how to grow your blog following.

And because we all have to start from somewhere, here is a look into the first posts of some of my favorite bloggers.  And my very first nearly four years ago.

Next on the must have list: destroyed denim.

Gap’s sale is on sale so you can go ahead take an extra 50% off this puffer coat and this floral bomber.

My girl Naty gave her blog a makeover and it’s perfection!

You can never go wrong with florals and stripes.

Black and white perfection.

And in case you missed it, this week I talked about winter floralsspring colors and why I’m sick of wearing puffer coats already.

Take an extra 50% off of sale items at Ann Taylor.  Because you know you need this fringe skirt.

  6. I adore bow blouses! We are getting 12+ inches of snow tonight. Unfortunately, I won’t get a snow day tomorrow. I can dream about it though. 😉 T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
