This weekend is all about love. It’s Kendo’s birthday and we’re going to my parents’ for a steak dinner and staying there before heading back to DC to do… whatever he wants! I didn’t get to spend his birthday with him last year because he had drill so this is actually his first birthday that we get to spend together. He’s also been working night shifts so I’ve rarely been able to see him during the week.

Conversation Heart Earrings

Lately on The CaroLøve

I’ve got my eye on…

If only this Pink Confetti Sequin Skirt was still available in my size!

I love Stella & Dot for their jewelry but I’m also loving this Crush It Bag. Unfortunately, it’s sold out right now but it’ll be back in April!

My all-time favorite nail color is nowhere to be found online in Gel. Let’s Be Friends was unfortunately a limited edition Hello Kitty/ OPI collaboration, but this might be a pretty decent dupe nail polish. What do you think?

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

Ok but did we really need Rosé Vodka? via Town & Country

I get a lot of inspiration from another Caroline. She had a great post this week about not getting sucked into the numbers game on Instagram. via The Caroline Doll

Reading this article, I somehow feel like I’m a “middle” millennial. If that’s even a thing. via Bustle

TGIF

It’s been a minute since I TGIF-ed it up. I mostly write my blog posts on my lunch breaks and for some reason, Thursday lunches have been almost non-existent. Even today (Thursday) I had barely a minute to myself and shoveled leftovers into my mouth between meetings. AND GUESS WHAT- I put in my two weeks notice and I will be moving on to a new job in August! So today really was a crazy day. So blessed to be able to come home to my sweet fiance and our cozy apartment to decompress after long days. A huge thank you to my friends and family who have been a great support while I freaked out at work for the past few months.

This week on The CaroLøve:

In case you were somehow absent from the internet yesterday, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access has begun! I’ll post my picks for Saturday Shopping tomorrow!

Target has started making science-themed shirts for girls to encourage STEM curiosity. Of course, some people are mad that they’re pink, but I think anything to encourage girls to learn is great!

Well-known bridal company Alfred Angelo has closed its doors suddenly, and is radio silent as brides and ‘maids try to figure out what to do about dresses they’ve already paid for. Makes me glad I decided naht to go with them.

Segue into how I honestly think it’s bizarre that Thredup plans to open five brick-and-mortar locations by the end of 2017. But Buff Exchange made my skin crawl with anger every time I went in so maybe this is a good thing!

I can count on one hand the times I’ve taken off my bracelet with my sister’s initials, but the bracelets around it have changed over the years, currently on my mini-stack are 2 from Stella & Dot: the Melody Bracelet & the Wishing Bracelet – Bisous. So dainty + delicate but with a #summervibes + playfulness.

Super tardy to the party sharing this but it’s SUHCOOL that Julien was featured on the Draper James blog, showing off her fave spots in Georgetown!

Caroline (not me) is goals + I love her post on working from a home office and productivity!

Have a great weekend!

I found it very interesting (and wonderful!) that the results of my reader survey told me that my readers certainly wanted me to keep my #wcw feature from Little Bitty City One AND that they wanted me to include women I admire beyond blogging. With Caroline, I have the best of both worlds!

Admittedly, I know of Caroline because I instantly fell in love with her candy pink, sugary sweet Instagram account, but after following her, I realized there is a lot more to The Caroline Doll. I became really inspired by her after hearing her Grit & Glitter Co. podcast. She keeps it real about how Instagram and other social media is not real life (something that we sometimes forget) and how her business came to be- hint: she worked, and continues to work, really hard. Not only is she beautiful inside and out, but she started a business that was never originally in her plan and stuck with it to create the Fashion Infused Posh PR. I adore her style and have already decided that when I get married one say that I’m going to have her as my day of coordinator. Her blog is a mix of business, fashion, and event inspiration all wrapped up in a lovely pink bow. She is, ultimately, #goals for me- I would love to one day own my own business doing what I love and I can’t wait to be even more inspired by this gorgeous and successful name-twin of mine. Thank you, Caroline, for being my first #wcw on The CaroLove!
