Friday Favorites – Weekly Inspiration

Welcome to Friday Favorites, a series where we share our favorite decor, design inspiration, fashion finds, TV shows, recipes and more!

It’s the beginning of a three day weekend – yay! We don’t have any big plans, but we will be continuing with the laundry room, and I’m also meeting an old friend for lunch which is always nice. 

And of course, there are those President’s Day sales so I’m sure I’ll be doing some couch-scrolling, too. I’ve found lots of deals and cute finds to share with you today!

Today I’m sharing lots of sale finds from my most favorite stores!

Pottery Barn has so many gorgeous rugs on sale! This one I have in my bedroom is stunning (20% off), and this one is really pretty and a steal now!

Studio McGee has 25% off everything, which they only do a couple of times a year! I love this scalloped wicker trash can, these beautiful woven trays are a best seller, and I just bought this adorable rolling basket for my new laundry room! 🙂

Shoppe Amber Interiors has quickly become one of my favorite stores – she always has unique items that aren’t carried anywhere else and the whole site is 20% off! I love this handcrafted vase, and this little brass tray is adorable and would be perfect anywhere.

Magnolia is another store that has unique items and their site is 20% off – these distressed vases are an amazing price, and I just ordered this scalloped marble tray for the bathroom – love!

And Wayfair has so much on sale I seriously would never be able to share it all! This wood shelf unit is almost half off, this pretty wood mirror is more than half off, and this gorgeous pendant light gets amazing reviews and is under $150!

Last week’s best sellers: this stunning European-inspired mirror and these adorable woven trivets.



A few fab random finds!

I saw this cute sweater vest (30% off) on another blogger on Instagram and fell in love! Ann Taylor has so many cute pieces right now. I love this open stitch sweater (30% off) that’s so unique, this quilted trench coat (30% off) is amazing, and I adore these sling back pumps (40% off)!

I love a pink blazer and this one is perfect (50% off), this J.Crew blazer (30% off) is such a classic style (above) and a good wardrobe staple to have, and this plaid tweed blazer is so chic and on sale for half off now!

This handbag (30% off) is the perfect size, and I just adore the snakeskin pattern.

And on the subject of closets, I know I mentioned I use the thin velvet hangers for my blouses and tops, but both my coats as well as my pants were still on plastic. So I decided to upgrade those items to wood, and I couldn’t be happier! I use these hangers for my pants and skirts, and these hangers for coats and jackets, as well as my blazers. They look so much better and they make me happy every time I look at them!

Last week’s best sellers: this ‘Bonjour’ tee shirt and these cute cropped jeans.

  1. I bought the Chambray Multi colored Reeva rug a year ago, and wasn’t sure if I wanted to add that much blue to my decor. So I returned the chambray colored PB Reeva rug, and decided I would wait for a sale to buy the beige colored Reeva Rug. I was so happy to read your President’s Day sale post! I wasn’t even thinking about all of the good sales today! I ordered my Reeva rug (via your link) at 20% off today. So happy! It is such a great look and really nice quality. This is my 3rd PB rug and they all hold up so well!

    1. Yay Debbie, that’s so great! I’m so glad it worked out. Hope you love it as much as we do!


  2. I have the Pottery Barn Reeva rug too and love it! I also love your Friday Favorites:)

  3. Saw 3 episodes of The New Look last night & LOVE it!!

    1. Yay, love hearing that Marti! I can’t wait to start it!
