Welcome back girls! I’m back on this lovely Friday for another round of confessing with my fellow blonde, Leslie. Here’s this week’s dirt…

1. I fully indulged myself last night at sushi happy hour. We have this fabulous local sushi restaurant that does a happy hour where sushi is half off. Yes, I sale shop my food too! One thing you should know about me, I will eat sushi for breakfast, lunch, & dinner. Everyday. It is my absolute favorite food in the world! Seaweed and raw fish for the win!

2. Oklahoma is finally embracing cooler temperatures that have allowed me to pull out the Tory Burch boots I scored during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale in July. That pretty little box has been taunting me through all of the miserable heat we’ve had! So happy to finally put these guys on my feet. I saved for what seemed like an eternity to buy them & now I’m going to wear the heck out of them!

3. I totally purchased the most flashy, un-teacher like pants this week & I couldn’t be more excited! Hazel and Olive re-stocked these Gold Sequin Pants and I didn’t even think twice before clicking “purchase!” I think they’ll be perfect dressed up for holiday parties or causal with a tee & utility jacket. I mean, who doesn’t want to stand out in sparkle pants? 😉

4. Kendra Scott opened a new location here in Oklahoma City recently. Wednesday night was the official Grand Opening party with hors d’oeuvres, drinks, a DJ, and goody bags. Best part? The one & only Kendra Scott was there to kickstart the party in the new store! I got the opportunity to chat with her and she is just the sweetest. Of course, I couldn’t leave the party without picking up a little something for myself! Duh! I also added this classic necklace, these to die for earrings, and these bangles to my Christmas list. 

5. Thankfully, my school district decided it would be a good idea to have a Fall Break so that teachers can gain a dose of sanity back before finishing up the first semester! That meant I had a three day work week! I am now spending my four day weekend sleeping, shopping, running errands, sleeping, clearing my DVR, visiting family, sleeping, getting a manicure, taking the pups to the dog park, & sleeping. Oh, and sleeping.

Enjoy your Friday ladies! I’ll catch you back here Monday with a few new outfit posts! Until then, join me on Instagram 🙂

Elvia, the sweetest boutique owner, sent us the fabulous Sylvie top  from Le Boutique to show you three different ways to style it! I really can’t speak highly enough of this shirt. It has the classic black and white stripes of a closet staple, yet a hint of trendy style with the ruffled peplum hem!
I opted to pair the Sylvie with my favorite faux fur vest & Tory Burch riding boots. This is such a classic fall outfit! There are seriously so many ways you can re-wear this top & it is perfect for print mixing {like these two ladies did so flawlessly}.
