TGIF

This has been kind of a rough week. I hate that I’m not one of those girls who has trouble sleeping when her significant other is away but here we are. I’ve cranky, sad, sleepy, and it’s HOT OUT so I just have felt pretty off.

I’m going to Laytonsville this weekend (and probably every weekend for the next month) to get some time with my parents. Tomorrow is Joe’s Ride, so hopefully the weather will be nice for the Olney community to gather and remember the kids we have lost as a big family- including my sister. Joe’s family and my family did swim team together, but I always see many, many other familiar faces at this great event. Every year, rain is predicted, and every year, it holds off at least for the morning. #fingerscrossed

Weekend Printable Wall Art

This week on The CaroLøve

I’m welcoming a new partner this week to The CaroLøve! Coconut Lane is a great accessories site out of London Made for girl bosses, dreamers & believers. As a Coconut Queen, I get to offer all my readers 20% off their already affordable products with the code thecarolove20.

The love of novelty bags continues infinitely, but I recently found this adorable milk box, a cassette tape clutch, and a strawberry to go with all the fruits from my post earlier this week.

I still remember the first time I decided that pink was my favorite color. I was sitting at my kitchen counter, next to my baby sister. She was barely even talking at the time- I want to say we were 2 and 4. I looked over at her, inspired by the sunrise outside the sliding glass door to our deck, and told her definitively: “your favorite color is blue. Mine is pink.” I remember this so clearly. She took a bite of her breakfast and nodded, slowly and thoughtfully, agreeing with me.

It stuck with us for life. It was probably just because she looked adorable in aqua, but if there was a chance for us to be in quasi-matching outfits, hers was blue and mine was pink. Limited Too equated this with angels and princesses, respectively, so she was angel and I was princess.

I was so into pink. My walls were pink (behind all the crap I’d taped to them), my carpet was “bubblegum,” and I even had a hot pink Hello Kitty CD player. After having a pink dorm room in college, I was a bit over it, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love feeling pretty and girly. While I’ve toned it down a bit, I still feel the prettiest and most feminine rocking a bit a blush or Barbie pink. I mean- look at the logo I chose for The CaroLøve! And a little pink can go a long way in completing my outfit- like for what I wore to the Cera party.

If you feel the need to add just a little bit of pink to your life, all of the pieces below are under $50 (and a lot are under $25!), so you can add some of that sugar totally guilt free.
