Friday’s Five

Beautiful ‘peppermint’ amaryllis.

Guys! Where the heck did 2017 go?! Despite being surrounded by Christmas stuff and all the red flowers at the shop, I’m still in denial that the holiday countdown is officially on; I haven’t finished my shopping (because I haven’t exactly started) or watched a single Christmas movie to help me get in the holiday spirit. This weekend I’m determined to hit all my favorite local businesses to tackle my gift list, bake a sweet treat or two, and get cozy on the couch with the Griswolds and hot cocoa.

Even though I’m behind on my holiday to-do list, we had a great week celebrating the season with friends and family!

I actually finished our holiday window display early this year! I really love how it turned out, especially our mannequin in her custom-designed Christmas cocktail dress that I made with live greenery and silk flowers. 
On Wednesday night, I went to my little brother’s Christmas concert. He plays both the baritone and alto saxophone in his high school band. I may have teared up through the whole thing because I can’t believe how grown up he is!
Surrounded by poinsettias at the flower shop.
This sweet reindeer was part of a BIG holiday arrangement I designed for an event last night. I really wanted to keep him for myself.

  • Hey, girl! 👋🏻 We have a handful of these hand-painted face vases available at @lasaterflowers that are perfect for fresh flowers, succulents, or even a catch-all bowl for keys and hair ties. (We all have one of those somewhere in our home; it may as well be cute. 😉) #floraldesign #shopsmall #summerblooms #flashesofdelight
  • I jumped on board with @kendieveryday’s #30x30remix! For the next month, I’ll mix-and-match 30 pieces from my wardrobe into 30 weekday outfits and share them in weekly roundups on the blog.

My first week of remixed outfits + my thoughts on the challenge are in today’s post at 👖

  • Back to work after a relaxing weekend! But with *zero* tan to show for it; I’m never not fully-shaded and SPF’ed, wearing a giant sun hat and some kind of mumu situation on a beach.

  • Just when I thought I couldn’t love @rafanatural coconut oil bar soap more, I started using them with these natural fiber ‘soap sacks’ and leveled up. 
ICYMI, my latest blog post is a roundup of 10 random things I’m loving right now, inspired by all the great finds on @things.i.bought.and.liked. (And doing my best @mariahlleonard photography impression with this afternoon light.) ✨
