happy friday!  unfortunately i have to work all weekend, but i will take it because this past week has been a great one.  plus, i will just live vicariously through you all, what fun plans have you got lined up?


one: this week is kansas city fashion week so every night has been filled with some sort of fun event to attend and runway shows start tonight!  it has been so fun getting dressed up, meeting old and new blogger friends, and celebrating fashion here in the city. 
two: finished the book “me before you” and cried like a baby.  if you are ever in need of a heart wrencher, look no further!  highly recommend it.
three: i make a new playlist on spotify every month and i must say my september playlist is where it is at.  i have been playing it nonstop and still have not found a song i want to skip.  you can give it a listen here.
four: every girl living in kansas needs a pair of red shoes right?  well this week i finally got a pair!  when they arrived i changed my whole outfit for the night just so i could wear them, as evidenced here on instagram.  
five: last weekend was just so much fun.  friday night we headed to a local art fair which is such a fun time year after year.  the weather is always fantastic and all the restaurants have booths and everyone we know is down there.  saturday i headed to a blogger event where i entered to win a gorgeous carelle necklace from tivol, and get this, i won!  then sunday matt and i went to brunch before heading out to the royals game.  they had been in a losing streak but i have been known to be their lucky charm and what do you know, they won!  it was such a blast to be there for the win, the place was going wild.  we are still hoping for a blue october!

ps:  i still need your votes to help with a contest with fortuity!  you can see all the details on my facebook page by clicking here.  all you have to do is go on social media and like the picture of me in the blue romper from wednesday’s post 🙂

  • "Me Before You" has to be one of my new favorite books! It was recommended to me by a friend, who heard about it through her mother. I then told my mom about it and her whole book club read it. They couldn't stop talking about the book, so it ended up turning into a book club weekend event. I started reading another JoJo Moyes book. 🙂
