Friday Favorites

Happy FRIDAY, friends!  It's extra happy around here because after wrapping up some things at school today we're all off for a whole week!!! Well... the kids and I are... Dave is knee deep in crazy season but we're hoping to get some good family time in early next week. 

Erika, Narci and I are sharing our FAVORITES this week and we'd love it if you'd join in!




Today I'm talking about  Topshop again and sharing some of my FAVORITE picks from their sweater selection.  A great feature of the Topshop line is that there is SO MUCH variety.  Their selection of sweaters is varied and has something for everyone and I was more than happy to try out a few.

First up is what I'm dubbing  the "perfect Thanksgiving sweater"...


... the color is GORGEOUS and it's roomy enough to accomodate a day of eating :)

It was "itch-free" and I loved the big ol' turtleneck.  I'm wearing the size 6 and found it to be oversized.




Next up is  the "Barbie sweater".  Griffin LOVED this one and while I adore the color I wasn't sure I adored it on me.  It's vibrant and soft and not quite as heavy as the Thanksgiving sweater.  This sweater also comes in a really pretty mustard color and again I'm wearing the size 6.



Next is  this navy ribbed sweater which I LOVED!!!  The collar is great if you don't love a full turtleneck and the weight was heavy without being hot.



It has a great little slit on the side and comes in cream and a gorgeous rust color as well.


Last, but not least is this fun animal print number.  It's WAY out of what I would normally wear but it's SO COZY and soft and I think I might love it :)  





So I need your help... leave me a comment and let me know which ONE sweater I should keep :)



Show and Tell this week meant baby JoJo got to take a trip to school :) 


And snuggles with our FAVORITE kitty :)


Yesterday was BUSY and I was fortunate that I got to stop by all three kids' Thanksgiving parties.  First up was Griffin's Thanksgiving Feast.


The kindergarten classes prepped the corn, green beans and baked the cornbread muffins earlier in the week and got to enjoy them alongside Chick-Fil-A nuggets :)


Next up was the 2nd Grade Pie Feast!


That's Mason and his bestie at the co-head of the table :)


They had all kinds of pies to sample and this boy was in HEAVEN!


After the feast we headed back to their classrooms where they got to show off the Native American dioramas they worked on yesterday.


I stopped by Luke's party quickly but didn't snap any pictures.  It was at the same time as Mason's party where I was volunteering and my mom got to help with one of the stations.  Luke was SO PUMPED to have his Gibi there!  It was also crazy hair/crazy sock day and Luke's hair looked like this...


CUTEST mohawk I ever did see!


I had lots of questions about these trees that were in my weekend post and they're from one of my FAVORITE places - Hobby Lobby!  A few of them are HomeGoods finds from over the years, but the majority are recent from Hobby Lobby!


I saw this meme this week and couldn't stop laughing!  I don't know how I got on the list for these calls but I get probably 5 a week.  SO ANNOYING!


And this showed up on my timehop from the week... 


... baby Griffin!!!  And these boys are in COLLEGE now!  Time is a thief, y'all!


Today we're looking forward to watching the kids perform in the Grandparent's Day program at school and then we're going to pull out the Christmas boxes! WOO HOO!!!  Sunday night I'm going to a wedding with my friends from work (YAY!) and we're off of school next week!  It's going to be a GREAT day!

I hope that y'all have a wonderful day and a fantastic weekend!  HAPPY FRIDAY!

  7. I absolutely love the navy blue ribbed sweater on you, & being a neutral color it will definitely pair with a lot more :-)
    (The other ones seemed very bulky and swallowed you up)

  11. I think the animal print one is the most fun and different from other things you have shown on the blog. Cute for longing and great with tall black boots for a evening out with the ladies!

  20. Topshop is such a fun brand! They're originally from the UK and I discovered it over there before I found it at Nordstrom. They also used to do maternity clothes that were amazingly cute and affordable, but I haven't seen their maternity line in the US lately. It's still available in the UK. I think you should choose between the two you love! I thought the animal print was fun and could be more versatile.

  23. The navy sweater is my favorite, but if you don't care to wear navy, then get it in the rust color that you thought was gorgeous. ;)

  24. I think the orange "Thanksgiving" sweater looks great on you!

  25. My favorite is the first rust colored one - SO cute on you!

  26. ORANGE!! It looks so great on you. Very few people look good in orange. You are one of the lucky few. The sweater is also a gorgeous sweater and it looks so comfy and cozy, which is a must.

  27. Love them all! What size are you wearing in the navy ribbed sweater? I love that the neck isn't bulky, but wondering about fit!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Choose the navy if you want a new basic and the Thanksgiving sweater if you want something fun! I miss the elementary school holiday feasts! Love GG's apple turkey;).
