Friday Favorites #39

I always worry that I won't find enough items to highlight for a Friday Favorites post (which is one of the reasons I'd been doing them alternating weeks for a little while), and this week started off the same way.  However, I found an abundance of items this week... and many of them are so springy I can scarcely stand it!  I'm so ready for sunshine and no more snow!  But for now, these very vernal picks will have to do, until the weather catches up with my spring fever:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

I am of the opinion that one can never have too many cardigans, and this adorable little yellow sweater would be lovely for the spring!
Adorable springy printed dresses alert!

I can be pretty particular when it comes to florals, but these pieces are divine:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5

And although I am often drawn to kooky prints, I think these two plainer dresses are simply gorgeous!

                      aquamarine                                            periwinkle                                     

This petal pink coat would be perfect for any amount of spring chill!
I adore this pair of pastel, fantastical purses!

And I want this mythical portable unicorn speaker!
More silly novelty bags ahead!

e // f // g

A whimsical, pastel, retro-inspired swimsuit??  TAKE MY MONEY.
Speaking of retro, I love the idea of these three pieces together (especially since this dress looks so much like the one the girl is wearing on the earrings!):

a // b // c

Behold: the loveliest dress (which I'm determined to own) by my favorite brand ever...
Plus, here are a few other things I found this week that I loooove:
If someone would like to test out either of these delectable waffle recipes on me, I would gladly volunteer to be the guinea pig:

Churro Waffles:

Spiced Orange Chocolate Chip Waffles w/Orange Spice Maple Syrup:

Finally, I'd coincidentally done a little bit of research on this recently, but this article made me pretty convinced that I fall into the category of being a Highly Sensitive Person (which kind of just sounds like I haven't developed a tough enough skin or something, but it's a real thing).  It seems like many people in more creative arenas seem to fall into this category (including many bloggers, which makes sense to me), and it's nice to know that I'm a) not alone and b) that these traits can be revered.  There've been some instances in my life lately that have made me feel abnormal for feeling things more deeply or being prone to crying more than other people -- which I had never really questioned before.  But I read through this list and could check off almost every one in terms of whether or not they applied to me.  I want to read and learn more about this, and I've already gotten some really nice recommendations of where to start.  This is a much less fluffy note to end on this week, but maybe it'll interest you, too!

Thanks for joining me this week!  Have a wonderful Friday!

  1. It makes sense for us bloggers who maybe crave attention and community, but in person attention and crowds make us anxious.

  2. Love so many of these favourites!! The aqua dress... swooooon.

    And that article... definitely hits home with me as well. I definitely checked more than 14 boxes in the list... A lot of those characteristics are common with Water signs as well, which I am... and I believe you are as well??

  3. OMG I just want everything. Spring calls for a new wardrobe :3

    I know I'm a highly sensitive person and I'm just okay with it. I'm really empathetic and get too eager to want to help. Learning to take a step back from that because it's not always needed. I always get sucked in and start to feel whatever the other person is.. which can ruin the mood of that night . >_<

  4. I love your picks, the shoes are all adorable and that duck dress is just stunning! Gotta love mod cloth! I don't think I could ever have trouble putting together a wishlist!
