2020 Friday Favorites Week 9

Friday, February 28, 2020

It's Friday once again and that means it is time for Friday Favorites with Andrea, Narci & Erika!

Let's get into this week of favorites.

On the blog this week was my monthly link up party called The Feels!
Head here to check it out and get ready to join me next month :)

I styled not one, but two looks in my PinSpiration post this week!

And it's hard to believe that February is over already, but it is.
Check out my February Edition of What's Up Wednesday for all the things we have done, loved, etc.

In other news, it was my mom's birthday yesterday!
Wishing her the absolute best year!
And hoping to celebrate her soon :)

I saw this on Facebook this week and had to share it.
I haven't experienced this yet, but I know it is in my near future :/

Keeping it short and sweet this week!
Hope you have had a great week and enjoy your weekend!

Thanks as always for stopping by today!

Business Casual Legging Love

Wednesday, February 26, 2020

Today I brought some coziness to my work attire.
I wanted to style some basic black leggings for the office for you.
I found so many options when looking at Pinterest.
So I decided to recreate two that I found.

Look #1

Tee - Similar
Scarf - Similar
Leggings - Similar

I actually have a mustard/brown cardigan I could have used for this look, but I decided to switch it up and use my cream cardigan.
I also swapped out the cheetah/leopard scarf for an Aztec print one that I have.
I think it turned out great!
Perfect for a business casual office during the colder months!
The possibilities for this look are endless!
With an all black base, you could throw on just about any cardigan and scarf and immediately be dressed for work.

Look #2

Let's be real for a moment...
There was no way I was going to look like Jen in my recreation.
But that isn't what I'm going for.
I want to show you that you can get inspiration from one of the biggest influencers out there, and not have to be 100% like them.

Blazer - Similar
Striped Top - Similar
Leggings - Similar
Boots - Similar Currently just $8!!!
Necklace - Similar

Yes, I am wearing some similar pieces to what Jen is rockin' above, but the most important thing it I made this look my own!
And I feel good about it :)

Do you wear leggings to work?
Are you into the blazer trend right now?

I would love for you to join me and link up your style posts below :)

Thanks again for stopping by today!
And don't forget to check out my What's Up Wednesday post today as well!

XOXO ~ Vanessa

Linking up with the Style Six ladies and Nancy's Fashion Style as well!

Hey, Hey Party People!
It's time to link up with Sheaffer and Shay for What's Up Wednesday!

What we're eating this week...
Monday - Chicken Rice Bowls
Tuesday - Spaghetti & garlic bread
Wednesday - At my in-laws
Thursday - Smoked sausage and veggies
Friday - Out
The Weekend - ???

What I'm reminiscing about...
That it feels like yesterday I was signing X up for toddler ball.
I just signed him up for his second season of U8 baseball this spring/summer and I can't wait to help coach again!





What I'm loving...
This is honestly a love/hate thing.

I love this time of year because one of my favorite candies are out right now.

I certainly don't need them, but I can't resist them!

What we've been up to...
Nothing really.
Vegging out at home watching a bit too much TV.
You know it's bad when this TV junkie is admitting that!

What I'm dreading...
Nothing at the moment :)

What I'm working on...
Getting my butt back into a good workout schedule since we don't have a million and one activities going on right now.

I'm currently loving the Heather Robertson workouts on YouTube.

What I'm excited about...

I'm always excited about the house to be honest.
Lots of things going on these days and it just makes me excited that we are little by little getting closer to the finish line. 🙏

What I'm watching/reading...
I have been watching so much Netflix these days!
I'm now on the 3rd season of New Girl and still loving it.
Mic and I watched The Stranger, Safe and just finished The Five this past weekend.
Have you watched any of them?

Of course I'm still watching the tried and true shows - This Is Us, A Million Little Things, Blue Bloods, etc.

And I decided to give Katy Keene a try since I loved Lucy Hale on Pretty Little Liars.
I'm not reading anything at the moment, but I did just hit submit order on the following books.

Anything else that made February feel good?
We watched X and his basketball team go undefeated this season.
They played so hard and so good!

2020 Friday Faves Week 8

Friday, February 21, 2020

YAY it's Friday!
Linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika for another week of Friday Favorites!

We kicked off our weekend with a Valentine's Day party at school.
This guy was super pumped to share his Fortnite valentines and bring in his Fortnite treasure chest box 💗

On the blog this week I shared my latest PinSpiration look.

And some super cute home decor for spring in my monthly Let's Stay Home series.

Coming up on Monday is the February edition of The Feels!
Grab the image below and answer the questions based on the past month.
Things go live at 4am EST on Monday!
Share on your blog, Instagram, etc. and tag me or use #thefeels2020

After watching The Stranger and Safe on Netflix by Harlan Coben, Mic and I couldn't resist starting The Five.
This one might be my favorite yet!
Have you watched any of them?
What do you recommend when we finish The Five?

Image result for the five netflix

I have been in the mood for a good laugh this week!
Since I'm all caught up on Schitt's Creek, I took the suggestion from a friend and decided to give New Girl a try.
Oh my goodness do I love it!
I have already watched 6 episodes in the first season and I can't wait to watch more!

Image result for new girl

And that is it for this week!
I am mentally and emotionally drained from this past week.
Bring on the weekend, some more New Girl 😉, and maybe an adult beverage (or two)!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

XOXO ~ Vanessa

Let's Stay Home - Spring Decor Finds

Thursday, February 20, 2020

To be honest, I don't typically decorate in the spring or for Easter.
I do put out some St. Patrick's Day decor at the beginning of March, but it usually gets put away right after the holiday.
I do want to get better at decorating for the seasons once we get back into our house.

I started browsing Amazon as I always seem to do, and found some cute items to add to your home for spring.

* That large blanket basket could be used in so many ways IMO.
Nursery laundry basket, base for a potted tree/plant, store bath towels in a small bathroom, etc.

* Spring is all about things starting to turn green again around here.
The eucalyptus wreath and mini faux potted plants are the perfect way to add some color to your space when things are still dreary looking outside.

* Gingham is one of my favorite patterns!
These dish towels are the perfect way to add some spring to your kitchen and add a little Easter decor as well.

* One of the easiest ways to decorate your home for the season is throw pillows.
The family pillow is great year round honestly.
Throw some plaid covers over your other pillows and you instantly have a new feel in your family room.

* A yellow doormat screams spring to me!
It is fresh and so inviting :)

Do you decorate for spring or any of the spring holidays?
What type of decor do you typically use in the spring?

Thanks as always for stopping by today!
