High Five for Friday 07.24.15

TGIF, H54F-ers!!! Caitlin at Coffee with CaitlinDella at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself* want to welcome you to the link-up and the weekend.  We made it!!! 

*Caitlin at Coffee with Caitlin is on a short hiatus from co-hosting, but she’ll be hosting periodically still.  As soon as she returns full-time, we’ll be sure to let you know!

This week’s featured blogger is Kate from Classy Living.  She’s a Jersey-girl who teaches elementary school, lives a gluten-free life, and teaches zumba!  Kate’s a lifestyle blogger, and her recap from last weekend features a heartwarming share about her grandma.  And #5 on her H54F post from last week had me laughing hard!

Now let’s review the highlights of my week:
1. I found an awesome deal on an iconic fashion accessory.  It’s been #1 on my MUST HAVE List for years.  I’m even driving 3 hours each way to go pick it up.  As soon as I have it in my possession, there will be a post to Instagram, and an introduction on the blog to follow next week [insert squeal].
2. I met Rynetta from jcrewismyfavstore [insert 2nd excited squeal]!!!  You can find her blog here and her Instagram here. If you like J. Crew and/or professional fashion, then you need to follow her. We’ve followed each other on Instagram for a while now, but just figured out that we live in the same city.  We were so excited to get together for dinner. It was a success–we hit it off!  I’m so thankful to have made another blogging friend who lives nearby:)
All J. Crew outfit were necessary for the occasion, of course.
3. Kane had a double-header of birthday parties on Saturday.  They were both outside, and it was hot, but it was sweet to see him playing with his buddies.  I broke out the blow-up pool for him on Sunday, and he loved it!  I almost climbed in it with him because I was melting while watching him.
4. A new Wardrobe Re-Wear is up, as promised.  I love doing these posts, and my hubby did a great job taking the pictures. He hates it, but it does it anyways.  That’s just one of the little things I love about him.
5. I’ve been wearing all of my cheap and fun sale shirts this week.  Have you checked out the Maurices sale yet??? Disclaimer: the navy + white print button-up is from the Old Navy clearance extra 30% off sale, but I think that ended last week:(
