Friday Five

1. Jack Rogers in January
We may have gotten snow last night, but last weekend it was warm enough to wear my Jack Rogers! I took advantage of every moment because that is very unusual for January, even in the South!

2. Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers
Last Saturday night I watched the Miss America 2013 Pageant, and I was so bummed Miss South Carolina (Ali Rogers) didn't win. First runner-up is still something to be extremely proud of, but I feel like she got robbed! Her talent was clearly the best (for those of y'all who didn't see it, she played an amazing piano arrangement of Jackson Five's I Want You Back), she nailed the answer to her question, and she carried herself with class, poise, and grace. Her personality was so great as well-I loved how in the introductions she defended Southern accents by saying "Y'all are the ones with the accent." 

3. Lilly Pulitzer Lana Top
Back in early December I got this Lilly Pulitzer Skye Blue Lana Top on sale from Pink Bee, one of my favorite Lilly Via shops. I wore it for the first time during the warm snap last weekend, and I'm hoping to wear it to a UNC basketball game sometime soon, since the color is pretty close to Carolina blue! I love all of Lilly's basic cotton slub tops, and the rucched sleeves add a nice touch to the Lana. The embroidered tonal logo at the bottom right corner of the top is an extra little detail typical of Lilly that I adore!

4. Kate Spade Tortoiseshell Sunglasses
About a week ago I found these precious tortoiseshell Kate Spade sunglasses on clearance at Nordstrom Rack. They were 75% off suggested retail and I just couldn't pass them up! And I absolutely love the pretty pink and orange Kate Spade case they came with, which makes it an even better deal!

5. People magazine Letter To The Editor
Taylor Swift used to be one of my favorite singers, she really did. I even saw her in concert back in 2009. When her "Fearless" and "Speak Now" albums were released I went to Target and bought them the day they came out. I couldn't bring myself to buy "Red" this past fall though. I didn't even find a single song worthy of downloading from iTunes. I don't care for the direction T.Swift has taken musically or personally. I miss her older more country stuff. Her newest songs don't sound country at all. Even though she still tries to pass herself off as a "country pop" singer I consider her "pop." Her personality also used to be so cute and sweet and now she just comes across as annoying and desperate. I came across this Letter To The Editor from a recent issue of People and I couldn't have said it better than Bonnie Oliver from California! Please, Taylor, take a hint! It really is better to be single than be in the wrong relationship just for the sake of having a boyfriend!

Have a great weekend y'all!

  1. I am so jealous that you got to wear sandals. It was unusually warm where I am but it was still too cold to wear my jacks.
