Friday Favorites

It is the HAPPIEST Friday of the year over here because SCHOOL. IS. OUT!!!  I'm wrapping up some loose ends in my classroom this morning and then we have a staff luncheon and then it's all summer all the time.  We are READY!  This week has been full of lots of FAVORITES like Mason and his portfolio self portrait :)  

If you're linking up with Erika,  Narci and I today to share your own favorites please make sure that you're including our graphic in your post, linking back to one (or all!) of us and linking up a Friday Favorites post (not a random post) :)  

When Nordstrom reached out and asked me to share some of my FAVORITE dresses I jumped on the chance because I LIVE in dresses all summer long.  I ordered several and have already added a few to my closet for summer.  Y'all know I adore shopping at Nordstrom because their customer service is out of this world awesome and I'm always on board for free shipping :) 

This flowy, yellow beauty SCREAMS summer.  The color and fabric are summer perfection...

... and if you're in an air conditioned church pew it can double as a blanket :) hahaha

This floral number is at the tip top of my list.  The color, the pretty floral print, the flecks of gold running throughout - it's PERFECTION!!!

It has spaghetti straps which will work great for summer - but I've opted to throw a jacket on over it for work.

I paired it with  these wedges which are so cute but even more comfortable!

I absolutely LOVED the print on  this dress!!!  It's light and airy and I'm a sucker for a square neck and wide strap...

... I found it to run a bit large (I'm also smaller on the top... so if you're a bit bustier it may be more true to size for you) and have it reordered in a smaller size (I'm typically a small in free people and I'm getting this one in an XS).  The print is super vibrant and you know that I love anything yellow!

I mentioned  this linen dress in a post last week and it's been on heavy rotation.  Linen is my FAVORITE fabric for summer and the color of this dress is perfection.

Last is  this cute jumpsuit...

... I can't get enough!!!  It's strapless with a super stretchy top (yes, ma'am!), those ruffle legs are so much fun and I can wear it with wedges or flats.  

And the print is pretty stinkin' cute, too!

You can shop all of my favorite picks (along with a few I'm loving but didn't try out) below...

... and I'd love to know which one is your favorite!  Leave me a comment and let me know :)

Griffin had her dance pictures this week and it was her FAVORITE costume so far!  Sequins for days and she was LOVING it.

Field day was rained out and moved into the gym earlier this week and Dave was volunteering at the parachute station.  I was proctoring exams but a friend sent me my FAVORITE pictures from the day :)

A student gave me a whole jar of my FAVORITE candy this week - it made giving and grading exams a whole lot sweeter :)

And last, but not least... congratulations to Alison Palmer for winning the bag and coverup!  If you'll shoot me an email ( I'll get your bag out to you this weekend!

Happy Friday and HAPPY SUMMER, friends!!!
