Friday Favorites

It's Friday, PLUS it's the Friday connected to a long weekend! It seems like it's been forever since we've had a holiday! Probably because my last holiday was New Year's Day! Time flies, but I have to say I welcome the longer break! The husband and I are headed on a road trip this weekend. We decided last minute to tackle the bourbon trail! You can follow along on Snapchat (carylee07) or on Instagram stories (morepiecesofme) - I'm sure it will be fun and I can't wait!! Before I go, I wanted to share some of my favorites lately along with some things I've had my eye on for summer!

May Pilates Update

It's that time again for another update on where I am in the Pilates certification process. Well, I am feeling extra behind at the moment, I can't even lie. I feel like I've been behind since I was gone for a week in Nashville in March and it's been spiraling out of control since then. But, I'm feeling a little re-ignition of motivation, and I refuse to focus on the negative or letting the thoughts of feeling behind get to me. I will continue to look forward!

DIY: Wedding Invitation Ornament

DIY wedding invitation ornament

You are probably thinking, "A do it yourself wedding invitation ornament? That's random!" And yes, it is, but it isn't! With Memorial Day around the corner, that means summer is upon us and if summer is upon us, that means peak wedding season is here, too! So before you throw away all those save the dates, shower invites, wedding invites, (and heck, even baby announcements), I thought I would let you know my favorite way to repurpose them with a touch of sentiment! I've made a few of these over the past few years, so it was time for me to formally document it on the blog. I will say that this was definitely not my idea. I stole this from a friend, Hannah, who posted about it on her blog awhile ago here. My process is similar, but I wanted to share it nonetheless! Let's get started!

Day of Fun

If you were an avid Friends watcher like I was, then you remember Joey and Janice's day of fun!! Every once in awhile, the husband and I make our own days of fun. On Friday after work he tells me, "We haven't had a Matt and Caryl day of fun in awhile!" He wanted to head to the mall to find some new luggage, test drive some cars (because I just paid my last lease payment), and perhaps get a pedi! He basically had me at "mall!" This is what I wore for our adventures!

Outfit details--- Hat: Forever 21 (option) | Sunnies: Ray Ban (option) | Earrings: Nickel and SuedeNecklace: Kendra Scott "Elisa" | Bag: Tory Burch (sold out) | Top: American Eagle  (on sale!!) | Bracelets: Charmed Stacks (option here) | Bottoms: American Eagle (similar) | Shoes: American Eagle (options here and here---

Random roundup

Random outfit roundup

Wowee! Not only did we make it to Friday, but I wrote FIVE posts this week and that feels like a big feat! I'm excited to have accomplished that, and hopefully it wasn't all throw away content and it resonated with you guys, too! But it's Friday, so that means it's time for another dose of Random Roundup where I share some selfies lately. These are outfits that I've worn to work recently! Yes, we have a pretty liberal dress code! Let's get started!

Beauty products I've tried lately

I guess you could say I was feeling a little ambitious this weekend. I'm actually posting 5 times this week which is something I haven't done in quite some time. I've missed it, to be honest! But this post is long overdue as I felt like I've tried a ton of new-to-me beauty products lately, but haven't shared any of this with you guys. And that's basically what this post is all about, so let's get started!
