Friday Favorites

I hope everyone had a great week! My week was lovely, but I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend hopefully spent at the beach. In the meantime, here are a few things that brightened up my week…

Favorite room:


Favorite Summer Sweater
(Wildfox White Label Palm Tree Sweater via ASOS):

Favorite Frozen Treat (peach frozen yogurt made with pureed peach, honey and Greek yogurt via Week of Menus):


Favorite Craft (hand-painted citrus Collins glasses via Cupcakes and Cashmere):


Favorite Pinterest Board
(pinner Tiffany Beveridge created a board called “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter” and named her stylish daughter Quinoa. The captions are hilarious and the photos are too cute):


“I always give in to Quinoa’s begging. First she wanted only the retro romper, quickly followed by the sunglasses, headscarf, and ‘50s diner as accessories. I’m such a sucker.”


“Quinoa absolutely loves a juxtaposition. And irony. And gummy bears.”


“Quinoa loves to horse around. Like, tying her neck bow off center.”

What was your favorite find from this past week?

    Oh no no girlfriend. I don’t want to hear or see the word “”summer sweater”” in this heat. It’s almost 100 degrees outside and it’s not even 10 am. Sporting a new hair look today called top-kNOT-so-sexy-sweaty-all-over-bun. Happy Friday yall!!

  • Angela bergen

    the sweater is super cute….too bad it’s over $400!!?? #saywhat #notthatcute

  • Stacie

    I feel your pain! My office is freezing so I always wear a jacket inside. If I forget to take it off before I walk out the door, I immediately think I’m going to have a heat stroke when I step outside. Gotta love the south!

  • Katelin Absher

    Always love your Friday favorites!! Those little girls are precious and very stylish!!

  • Kellie Norton

    Haha! SAME here!! That’s the only thing I don’t miss about the south… the constant humidity! Everyone in NYC complains about heat and I’m like “”Child, go down South for a bit and then you can complain about the heat…”” haha :-)

  • Rachel

    Love the wildfox sweater!!


  • Meghan Conard

    Love the painted glasses – so cute & festive!

    I can’t believe it’s Friday! I finished reading Steve Job’s biography last night so the first thing I noticed in the top picture was the luxo lamp in the background, which makes me think of Pixar! hah Happy Friday!!!

  • Rachel Trampel

    Love that room! The couch looks super comfy!

  • Deanne Castro

    My Imaginary Well Dressed Toddler Daughter is too cute! I always find something interesting on Lauren’s Friday Favorites!

    check out my blog and let me know what you think! It’s something new I’m working on and all feedback is appreciated!

  • Amy Favela

    Love all your favorites, Lauren!

    Should I get a Pinterest? I’m trying to limit my internet time and I feel like Pinterest is totally time consuming. Is it worth it?

  • Dana Ivy

    This pinterester is too freaking hilarious – not to mention her pins are absolutely adorable! I totally started following :)

    Dana Ivy – Check out my blog!!

  • WhitneyB

    hahaha Quinoa – hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

  • WhitneyB

    Definitely time consuming…and so much fun! But beware: if you’re like me, an endless supply of inspiration stresses me out when I try to fit in new recipes, projects, fitness tips, etc. into an already hectic life. I’ve found using Pinterest as a more elaborate way to “”bookmark”” things I find on the www so I can check the out later.

  • Rachele

    “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter”” pintrest board is super cute and too funny, love it! I’m in love with the Palm tree sweater as well looks very easy to wear and just screams summer time.

    My favorite find from this last week was an article on HuffPost about the latest parenting trend. Sure, you probably need to be a parent to think it’s funny, but the CTFD method is awesome:

  • jenny

    Love the girl in the red outfit and the ones with their rollerblades.
    Remind me of summers in Germany when I was a little kid.
    My parents never really saw me as all the kids from the neighborhood
    were busy playing outside and rollerblading all day.

    Oh memories… :) Thank you for sparking those Lauren!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Dana

    The room is giving me some major inspiration to redecorate! And I absolutely love Quinoa’s red outfit and I’m thinking of adapting it for myself :)

  • Ambi s

    I love that peach fro-yo recipe! Perfect for this heat we’re having here in the UK!

  • Linda Derise

    Re: your favorite room
    Can you tell me who is the manufacturer of the brown sofa and the rug. I am shopping for a soda and like the chesterfield.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.
