Five on Friday

Happy Friday and happy Halloween weekend!

Our kids are out of school on Monday so we’ve got a 3 day weekend ahead with lots of fun and festive plans.

Before we get down to it, I wanted share YOUR favorite items this week!

Top 5 Reader Favorite Items This Week
  1. Target Women’s Crewneck Pullover Sweater: Y’all LOVED this sweater I shared last week! It’s available in 12 colors and stocked in most sizes right now too.
  2. Game Day Pullover: This one took me by surprise because this top-seller is from LAST YEAR’S Men’s Gift Guide!! With tons of collegiate and MLB teams to pick from, this best-selling quarter-zip pullover is the ideal mid-weight layer for game day in the fall. It is designed with an innovative stretch French terry fabric that is moisture-wicking, quick-dry, UPF 50+ sun protection and easy-care.
  3. Corduroy Jumper: This is a similar version of the corduroy jumper I wore to the Stevie Nicks concert last weekend.
  4. No-Show Socks: Now this one comes as NO surprise. Month after month these amazing socks rank at the top of your favorite items!
  5. Square Neck Body Suit: I’ve received SO many messages from y’all raving about this flattering body suit. Comes in a rainbow of colors and the price point is amazing.

1. Caroline’s School Vocabulary Parade

We’ve all had lots going on this week, but I think Caroline had the biggest week of us all — she got braces and dressed up as the word “effervescent” for the school vocabulary parade (which was SO cute)! She was so proud of her styrofoam cooler costume and worked really hard on it!

2. Kika Vargas x Target Top

I cannot get over this gorgeous top I scooped up from Target. I’m usually the last one to the party when Target does a fun designer collab so I was excited to grab this top before it sells out!

It’s a wrap-style top with a deep v-neck and 3/4 length balloon sleeves. It also has a beautiful scallop edge.

I did a horrible job capturing it in this photo but it’s even prettier in person. I received multiple compliments on it when I wore it and everyone was so surprised when I told them it’s from Target.

Ahhhh, I absolutely love this top.

Here’s a better image that really showcases the gorgeous detailing of this top.

3. Easy Protein Balls

I made some protein balls for snacks on-the-go this week and they were SO good — and only took a few minutes to throw together. I should have doubled the recipe because I crushed this batch in just a few days.

4. Floral Skater Dress

I received a handful of requests to share this dress I wore for our family Christmas photos — and it’s back in stock in all sizes! This adorable dress has the most flattering fit and comes in two colors.

So cute! I want to hear about Caroline doing braces so early. My daughter is the same age and I’ve been expecting that to start any time, but our dentist hasn’t said it’s time yet.

Hi Christina! Question for you! I'm also short (5'1") and wonder how you manage to pull off puffy sleeves?? I always feel like they're dwarfing me...but they look great on you! :) Do you wear petite tops?
