Weekly Favorites 4.22.16

Friday, April 22, 2016

Happy Friday y'all! It's really starting to feel like spring/summer here in NC (75+ temps!) and I'm loving it! I've been trying to spend as much time outside as possible and have enjoyed planting some new flowers + plants...pink azaleas and peonies are just some of my favorites! We were even able to get a hammock hung up outside..seriously such a perfect place for a cup of morning coffee! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and are hopefully able to enjoy the sunshine!

This weekend I'm really looking forward to some fun girl time (+ lots and lots of wine) at the Great Grapes Festival. Last year I came home with 4+ bottles of wine and won't be surprised if I end up bringing just as many, or more home this year! The festival is mostly local wineries and I love discovering new wines that I haven't tried before!

I just started binge watching How to Get Away with Murder on Netflix and it is so good! Have any of you watched it? I've been watching non-stop and am almost through season 2 in only two days..so addicting! Speaking of tv...I love, love the Real Housewives franchise so I was super excited about checking out the new Real Housewives of Dallas...but honestly I'm a little underwhelmed and haven't found it that entertaining. Oh well, at least I still have the New York housewives and Southern Charm..seriously my whole dvr is reality tv and I'm not ashamed of it, ha!

You know what I love? When you have had your eye on something for a while and then you spot it on super sale! Honestly, this has happened to me a few times recently and it's awesome! This Rebecca Minkoff has been on my wishlist for a while now and I stumbled upon it at Nordstrom Rack the other day for over $200 off, I couldn't believe it! They also had a few other bags great for spring, like this pale pink one and this pretty mint one. Check out my snapchat @belleinthecity to see the one I ended up getting!

I've been decorating with a lot more with blue + white recently (read about my chinoiserie obsession and new finds here). After finding my first double happiness jar on our trip to Georgia I had been on the hunt for another one to make a pair. To my surprise I came across one at the flea market about a week ago for $30!!!! I've been finding a lot of my design inspiration on Pinterest recently and absolutely love this pink dresser and this foyer styling.

What are you loving this week? xo, S
