Five on Friday - What I Wore This Week

So I thought today I'd share five of my outfits from the week for my Five on Friday.  The weather here has been kind of all over the place, so my outfits have been too :)

1) Last Friday to the Zoo
Last Friday I took just Mason to the zoo and I wore my favorite jeans, twill jacket and this super fun lobster scarf from Hippie Chick boutique.  If lobsters aren't your thing, you need to scoop up the SOFTEST SCARVES EVER in cream and navy instead :)

My new favorite earrings are from this cute shop on Etsy (they're leather and are super lightweight!) and my bag is by Matilda Jane.

And in case you're curious, Mason is sporting his go-to Boden shorts (he wore these all last year and they've grown with him to this year as well!) and GAP hoodies are pretty much the only jacket my boys wear :)

2) Monday - Mustard pants with mixed prints
Monday I wore my yellow cords, demin jacket, mixed print shirt and Anthropologie scarf to work.

Apparently mustard skinny cords aren't as popular as I thought (hahaha) and I couldn't find a single pair to link to.  Mine are the Mia cords by Kut from the Kloth, but Nordstrom sold out of them a few months ago (I bought these in 5 colors I love them so much).  I did find THIS PAIR of mustard skinny jeans though!

My shirt was the "back story tee" from Anthropologie, but it's sold out as well... boo!

But I think this shirt is ADORABLE and has great back detail, too!

And THIS SHIRT comes in a similar color to the one I had on :)

Better pic of my mustard cords and TOMS wedges :)

3 - Sari Scarf and Boyfriend Cardi on Tuesday
Tuesday I wore my FABULOUS new scarf by Just Dawnelle on Etsy.  Mine is the 90" one and I'm pretty sure it's going to go with everything :)  She uses vintage saris (and serapes! that's on my wishlist now, too!) and mixes them with great florals and stripes.  LOVE!!!

My boyfriend cardi is from Forever 21 YEARS ago, but HERE's a $20 Target version that's a fun, summery orange.  I have a whole collection of hair clips from Anthropologie that I like to throw in my hair when I'm doing a messy bun.  THIS SET is super pretty. 

I paired the cardi and scarf with the same skinny cords, this time in grey, and my TOMS booties - this time in suede :)

Y'all - I could wear my TOMS booties every single day and not get tired of them.  For reals.  They're that comfy.  The black suede ones are back in stock and even though we're heading into Spring/Summer I think it would be pretty much irresponsible of me NOT to get them at this point. hahaha

4 - Wednesday - Sari Scarf (AGAIN!) and Matilda Jane Ruffle Pants
So I know a ruffle pant isn't everyone's cup of tea... I had a student call them my "crazy art teacher pants" :)  They make a statement, and I'm okay with that. hahaha  I have several pairs of Matilda Jane ruffle pants, and this particular pair is my current favorite.  I love the length, I love the color and I love the little lacey detail.  Totally my jam.

I paired it with my sari scarf for a second day in a row (I never do this, so that should tell you how much I love this scarf!), but I wrapped the scarf a third time around to give it a different look and my favorite denim jacket.  I got my jacket last summer from Nordstrom (they don't have it any more), but the one I linked to is from Zappos and they have awesome shipping and returns!

These flats did the job, but I'm definitely in need of an upgrade.  These TOMS ballet flats have been in my Nordstrom shopping cart for a few weeks and I'm thinking it might be time to bite the bullet.  Gorgeous, right???  #iloveyellow

THIS PAIR is a great neutral too.  Hmmmm.  Thoughts??? Which pair would you pick?

And as always, my big ol' stack of bracelets.  This is a bunch of different finds from all over.  The snake bangle is Stella and Dot, the LOVED leather bracelet was in Instagram find, the two red bracelets are vintage and I found them at a flea market, the gold feather bangle is Anthropologie and the cross beaded bracelet is from Hippie Chick.

5 - Thursday - Sick Day
Thursday my plan was to wear a maxi dress with a jacket since it was GORGEOUS, but I ended up staying at home in my pjs :)  

I wore my blardigan and my favorite fun pjs and didn't do anything with hair or make-up.  It was perfection. 

Speaking of perfection.... can we just talk for a minute about how there are now BLARDIGAN PANTS?!?!?!

The blardigan (blanket/cardigan) was discovered by one of my besties, Sheaffer, and while I was able to resist for a while (sticker shock!) I finally caved and have literally worn it every single day since then.  These pants are made of the same material (which I am confident is woven by angels in Heaven) and I'm afraid that if I got them I'd never leave the house :) 

If you aren't up for spending $90 on lounge pants... here are a few more economical (but just as cute!) picks...

THESE TWO are from Old Navy and are less than $15 each

And I know I'd sleep sweetly in either of these pairs...
