Friday 5 + Weekly Favorites!

Happy Friday Y'all! Let's dive right in shall we?
 Linking up with Christina, April, Darci, Natasha & Amanda







 If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen my favorite flowers from this week. Who doesn't love peonies? (Don't raise your hand!)












I just bought these adorable fruit and cheese shape cute-outs from Pampered Chef and cannot wait to use them! Also, they are only $11.50 and are going to be so great for entertaining (& kids one day! Can we say shape sandwiches??)  Get some here!











So I've told ya'll about the wedding we have coming up in 2 weeks in Florida and I wanted a budget friendly new dress. Since the wedding is at 4:30 it isn't super formal and it is beach-esq so I scored this bright yellow French Connection dress for a steal! It has slight shoulder pads for shape and pockets too! What do ya'll think for shoes and accessories?? 









Also spotted this week: My new favorite skirt! How cute is this guy from Alice + Olivia? Way over budget but I had to share! You can find it here!









Favorite SIMPLE recipe of the week? Avocado Chicken Salad! Yes Please! (recipe here)

  10. The dress! It's fabulous! I think it would look great with neutral shoes/gold accessories, or a totally different bold color shoe {pink, turquoise} with matching accessories! Can't wait to see what you decide. Oh! I just thought...a floral print shoe that has a hint of yellow would be fabulous too, and then you could have a variety of colors in your accessories! Ahhhh....decisions decisions!

  25. Oh my gosh that sandwich! I'll definitely have to try that one out! I bet you'll look great in that yellow dress. I'm really fair, so not a good color on me. I'd say a neutral or metallic shoe would be perfect.
    And those mini cut-outs are so cute! What a perfect way to cute fruit and cheese for a party. So fun!

    Have a great weekend!

  27. Love that dress (so much that I have it in the deep purple color ha). I paired mine with metallic pumps and big earrings for New Year's last year. Those little cookie cutters are adorable - happy to eat the leftover cheese ha

  28. Those flowers are gorgeous! Also, great pick with that dress. Crazy idea...what if you embrace the tropical Florida feeling and wear hot pink shoes and accessories with it? I think that would look awesome with your hair!

  32. I think I saw that flamingo skirt on pinterest! It's SO cute! Those flowers are gorgeous-- another blogger posted some peonies last week and you guys are inspiring me to try and find some fresh ones! I'm also loving those fruit cutouts-- you could make your own little edible arrangements!

  33. Those cutters from Pampered Chef are adorable. I thought I owned just about everything in the catalog - but I missed those. I may just have to add them to my collection!

  34. Big fan of French Connection. I would definitely go nude on the shoes!
