Friday Favorites | The one before August

Happy Friday friends!! What a week it's been - I feel like I've been running non-stop every which way and I'm so ready for the weekend! Sharing a good old fashioned favorites post and linking up with Amanda.  

Favorite Recipe

My friend and co-worker shared this recipe with me earlier this week and it just screams summer! Bonus is that she said it was easy to make and perfect for a weeknight dinner. 

Favorite Style Moment from a Celebrity 

I mean can J.Lo get anymore gorgeous!? This woman turned 47 and it feels like she's Benjamin Buttoning all of us and aging backwards!! She looks incredible!! 

Favorite Purchase(s)

Over the weekend I took my niece shopping for her birthday and she wanted to stop into Bath & Body Works - I can't tell you the last time I was in one, but the scents are just as fruity and fantastic as I remember!! She picked up a little something for herself and I treated myself to one of their new summer mists - Blue  Waves & Citrus. Honestly with the sales they run, I don't know why I don't stop in more often! 
Hands down my favorite NSALE purchase was this gorgeous trench coat for under $100! I didn't realize the detailing it had until it came in, but it has leather trim and fit true to size. Definitely a classic piece that I'll have for years to come! Funny story - when the coat came in, Won't be needing to wear it for a while - but I'm ready! 

Favorite Moment(s)


Yesterday was my sister's birthday and being able to celebrate over lunch was the best! We hit up Trade-Boston for some delicious food, the flatbread was a bit spicier than anticipated, but still really tasty! What I wish I would have gotten - the short rib grilled cheese...next time!

  32. A very Happy Birthday to your sister, you two look SO much alike; beautiful! I just pinned that pasta recipe because these days have been so incredibly busy that when it comes time to make dinner, my mind just freezes, this is perfect for those days! Your new trench looks so cute, you can't tell the leather details by looking at it, so it's good that you shared that because that makes it even that much more cuter and stylish! I think Nordstrom's sale this year was much better than in times past. I've never shopped their sales before, but this year, I did and got some really cute pieces I'm excited about! Their outerwear selection is amazing, including your trench! J.LO does not age, I don't know how, but she just doesn't! She looks the exact same as when she first stepped out with On the 6, gorgeous, and her style is ALWAYS on point! Thank so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the best weekend ahead!

  35. Good lord JLO is hot. I am ten years younger than her and I want to look like that! That trench is so cute. I am staying away from Norstrom for awhile, need to recover and that link is perfect! Short rib grilled cheese sounds amazing and you must go back and order that and share some. You and your sister are so cute! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes, JLO is the definition of beautiful! It's crazy how great she looks. You know she works hard for it though. I heard her talking about her diet and workout. It's intense, but it's defiantly paid off!

  45. Girl, I feel the same way about Jennifer Lopez. She is STUNNING. I hope I'm half as good looking as she is when I'm that age! And LOL about Benjamin Button... so true!

    ReplyDelete
  46. JLo either has an amazing doc or amazing genes! She is ageless! I know she puts in work at the gym but her skin is flawless, too! She looks way better at 47 than I even did in my 20's!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I seriously can't wait for the Gilmore Girls revival! It's going to be so good, and I might have almost started to cry when I saw the preview! That's awesome that you got to celebrate with your sister for her birthday! There's nothing better than some quality sister time! I hope that you have a great weekend!

  63. I have never watched The Gilmore Girls but I kind of want to. Happy belated birthday to your sister. J.Lo does look amazing but I don't care for those jumpsuits, especially the brown one but hey she can definitely pull them off. And that zucchini dish has me going gaga.

    ReplyDelete
  64. JLo is freakin gorgeous and has a body to die for! I def think she has become more beautiful with age even though she doesn't look a day over 30! I haven't tried Trade Boston but the Chicken Bacon Avocado flatbread at the lobby bar at the Boston Park Plaza is so good!
