Cheers to Friday! I hope you had a nice week! I was in Shreveport last weekend through this Tuesday. I went home to partake in a little Mardi Grass fun (hence the photo above). Michael was traveling for work this week so I ended up staying a little longer than I had originally planned. I spent Wednesday and Thursday catching up on work and general life things. Michael’s parents came in town to Houston on Thursday and are visiting through the weekend!

Things to Note

Friendly Reminder to Vote: Super Tuesday is this coming week! If you’re registered to vote in a state whose primary election is on Tuesday, remember to cast your vote! If you aren’t registered to vote, you can do so here! I don’t often post about politics, but it’s important to exercise your right to vote! So I encourage you to do so.

My Favorite Things this Week

A few of my favorite things this week!

Kendra Scott Friendship Bracelet // How cute is this new Kendra Scott piece?! I tied it on my wrist this week. It’s a bracelet that I likely won’t take off until it falls off. I’ve showered and worked out in it, and it has held up perfectly. It’s a really fun and unique piece for spring! It’s available in a few different color combos.

Leopard Duster (only $29) // I featured this piece in a blog post this week and plan on wearing it to dinner over the weekend. It’s such a good find! So cute! It’s a great layering piece for spring, and it will work perfectly as a swim cover up this summer! It’s by a local Texas brand too, which I love!

J.Crew Slide Sandals (currently 25% off) // Ok, I don’t own these YET. But I’ve been eyeing them all week long. I love the knot style and the cream color for spring/summer! I’m tempted to pull the trigger on these soon!

Have a great weekend!
