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 been a typical mercurial spring week here, we finally had some warmth and sun for a few days, only to have more rain and storms come crashing in. In fact, it was sunny and then hailing yesterday – all in one day!

But at least it’s spring inside! I’ve spent the last week cleaning, refreshing and adding a few seasonal touches. And next week I’ll be sharing my spring home tour, so stay tuned!

And now, let’s talk decor finds, fashion crushes, and more….





This whole English-inspired home is gorgeous, but I’m especially fond of the mudroom and kitchen.

I’m totally crushing on anything scalloped these days! Love this marble wine chiller and this marble cheeseboard (it’s such a great price for the size!) and either would make a good wedding or shower gift, too.

This neutral rug is a steal at this price!

I love adding lighter scented candles to my home in spring and summer, and this Sea Salt scent is one of my favorites. Another one that I love is this one. It comes in 3 amazing scents, but I’m particularly fond of Casa Pacifica.

There’s just something about Lily of the Valley that screams spring to me! These glasses are pretty and feminine, and I just ordered these faux stems – can’t wait to get them!

Looking for some storage? I’m crazy about this distressed wood shelving unit.

Two more fun finds! I love these recycled glass jars – how cute would they look in a pantry or laundry room?! I also spotted vintage pieces at Pottery Barn, including these vintage bread boards.




This super-chic linen jumpsuit (above) is so great for any spring function, from graduations, to showers, to dinner (also comes in Flax).

Could not love this super versatile belted denim jacket more!

You know how much I adore the puff sleeve look and this eyelet top is soo cute, as is this smocked one – and they’re both 40% off!

And while searching for some new sandals, I came across this pair that are so good! All leather, great reviews, and under $70! (They come in 4 colors, but I especially love the lavender).

And your top fashion favorites in March have been this pretty floral blouse (on sale now for 40% off – and btw, also comes in 3/4-length sleeve here), this very-versatile linen blazer (comes in 4 colors – I ordered the white), my fave wide-leg jeans that look good on everyone, and this adorable gingham blouse (so charming and 40% off!)




Murder Mystery 2 comes out today! If you didn’t see the first one, it’s a Netflix film starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. Strong on the comedy and light on the mystery, but I love them and their chemistry. And no one has cuter fashion style than her so I always enjoy watching anything she’s in! And.. did I mention it was shot in Paris?! 😉




It’s spring! Which means things like asparagus, artichokes, and wild salmon. This Panko-Crusted Salmon looks easy yet yummy, this Roasted Asparagus looks delicious, and I’d love to try this Spring Green Risotto!




Love this soft and pretty master bedroom.

Random Find: this over-the-door folding rack is so helpful with getting dressed, making outfits, etc. I just bought one and have it over my bedroom closet door. Love!

    What a dreamy home tour! Every room was perfection but I especially loved that laundry room! Who would not just want to stay in there all day & accomplish the laundry task in one big swipe! The desk area with the wrapping paper rolls on the wall would be so easy when you have gifts to wrap. I enjoy wrapping to make a pretty presentation but often dread dragging out all the supplies. Thank you for sharing.

    I will be anxious to see what you think of the quality of the stems you ordered from Amazon. I purchased those very stems at a local shoppe in my area and love them!

    Have a wonderful weekend & thank you for sharing! Love to look in my email to see your Friday Favorites 🙂

    1. Aww thank you for your kind words Paula – you made my day!

      And yes to that house!! It’s incredible isn’t it?! I’ll let you know when the stems arrive if I love them or not!

      Happy Friday to you!
