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!

Do you all have plans for the long weekend? Normally we have friends over or do something fun, but we’ll just be hanging here since Hudson is still recovering. 

What I am looking forward to is watching movies, making yummy dinners, and savoring some lounge chair time with a good book. With all that’s been going on I’ve done very little of any of that!

And it’s the official start of summer – at least for me! So, it’s all-summer-all-the-time over here for the next few months. On that note, I’ll be sharing lots of great summer finds today, Memorial Day sales, plus more of my ‘summer favorites’ (and a few random things here and there, too!)

THINGS I LOVE IN DESIGN/DECOR

This outdoor renovation is stunning!

 

Pottery Barn has lots on sale this weekend, starting with this unique and stunning throw (30% off) (I’ve been eyeing it for months!), this gorgeous blue patterned pillow (20% off) (love!), I’m loving this heirloom ceramic party bucket (20% off), plus some of their ‘found’ objects are also marked down like these antique bread boards (20% off).

McGee & Co is always a favorite and they only have sales a couple times of year so it’s a great time to snag something you’ve had your eye on (plus, this year it’s up to 35% off!) I’m loving the new, lighter wash on these favorite basket planters (15% off), this best-selling wicker vase (25% off) is stunning, and this basket’s (25% off) unusual shape makes it really special.

Magnolia has 20% off sitewide – some favorites are this gorgeous vase and these adorable marble canisters that could work anywhere but would be extra cute in a bathroom.

Fun Amazon finds: do you hate when your charger cable falls behind the nightstand? That will never happen again with this brilliant little magnetic charger holder! Another brilliant find is these sleek socket covers. I added them behind furniture so now things aren’t sticking out from the wall anymore!

Last week’s best sellers: these French-inspired drinking glasses (a steal at this price!) and this gorgeous summery tablecloth (now 30% off!)

 

THINGS I’M WEARING/WANTING

When it comes to summer fashion, there’s just nothing as crisp looking (or feeling) as white. White tops are my go to – they look great with jeans, with black, or in a white-on-white look like white jeans. Some favorites are this feminine and French-looking blouse, this classic camp shirt in linen, and this long sleeve eyelet blouse is gorgeous.

One of my favorite trends right now is a vest worn as a top, such a chic look! They’re everywhere, at every price point, but I’m especially loving this adorable scoop-neck version (40% off) or this classic style (25% off).

It’s shorts season! I love the longer length of these highly-rated shorts and buy them every year – they also come in a slightly shorter length as well (both 50% off right now!) And I love the idea of dressier shorts for date nights, especially with a blazer. These shorts above are so chic (40% off), and the matching blazer (30% off) is so stunning and would be great for so many summer looks!

It’s also sandal season! Love, love, love this cute slingback style (under $100), and this strappy sandal is an exact dupe of my favorite Reformation sandals for much less!

Last week’s best sellers: this versatile raffia clutch and my favorite packable hat (still half off!)

THINGS I’M WATCHING/READING

With Memorial Day comes the summer movie season and I’m here for it! I’m most excited to see The Fall Guy starring Ryan Gosling (can he do any wrong?!) and Emily Blunt. It looks funny, sweet and much better than the bad TV show it’s based on. I’m also looking forward to seeing Challengers starring Zendaya which I’ve heard great things about.

Later in the summer comes Fly Me to the Moon, Twisters, plus a romantic comedy starring Nicole Kidman. If you’re looking for more, you can read about the 31 Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2024 here.

 

THINGS I’M EATING/DRINKING

If you’re anything like me, you’re ready for some lighter-but-still-yummy meals, and entree salads are perfect for that. This Thai Crunch Chicken Salad (above) looks amazing, as does this Greek Chicken Salad with Tahini Vinaigrette.
