5 on Friday: Can I Pull Off These Sneakers?

H A P P Y  F R I D A Y !!!


It is finally Friday y'all. Did anyone else feel like this was an absolutely insane week? I honestly don't think I've ever gotten more big projects done in my life for work, ever.  

So to take a brain break and write this post is quite a treat! THANK YOU! :) 

By the way, how are you guys liking these posts? I hope they're still fun for you too. There's also more coming outside of these 5 on Friday posts. I announced this week on my Instagram a really fun project coming to the blog (eek!). For now though, I hope this 5 on Friday post provides you with some light-hearted joy and pretties!

{ONE} Pom Pom Mule Sneakers 

Let's jump into some #realtalk. And by real talk I mean, can this Mama pull off these slip-on mule sneakers with pom poms? Or will I just feel ridiculous and like I'm trying to be cute and hip?! 

For real, let me know, I've gone back to them a few times, but just can't quite decide!
They also come in leopard and grey

{TWO} The Best Clutch!

I have fallen hard. This clutch is EVERRRRRYTHING! 

It folds over, has a pocket, has a zipper section, magnetizes shut, has the most classic black and white palm print and is made here in Charleston. In fact, it's made by my awesome suitemate and office buddy Emily of Suite 33. And no, she did not pay or ask me to say any of the above :). 

I took it out with us on a date night this weekend when Ryan's Mom was in town (the necklace shown is hers, from Oops). I haven't taken it out of my bag since. So good!

{THREE} Eight LinkedIn Headlines That Don't Suck

I love this article from Girlboss (do y'all subscribe to their emails? you should!). My favorite one might just be: 

"Basically the Beyoncé of Excel Spreadsheets and SEO". Haha!

Note to self: Work on your LinkedIn title. 

{FOUR} Palm Wallpaper

Y'all know I've been dreaming of wallpaper and the thought of redoing my bathroom with a punchy print. It's also common knowledge that I'm a wee bit obsessed with palm, I even have "Palm" as part of my company name. I blame it on Birdcage

So imagine my heart flutters upon seeing the variations of this beauty:
What do you guys think, this or the cheetah paper I shared last time?

{FIVE} Long Wrap Cardigan 

Last week we talked about pumpkin everything, so this week I'm sharing this perfect cardigan to go with your pumpkin coffee cake, pumpkin candle and pumpkin spice latte. #BasicBsUnite. 

Look closely when you jump over to Nordstrom to take a peek, it actually has buttons and you can wear it open or snap it closed up around your neck as seen in the photo. 
It also comes in burgundy and black

That's a wrap (no pun intended on the above ;))! This is our last weekend in town before I'm gone or we're all out of town or have guests in town for the next FIVE WEEKS! I hope I can survive this season of busy, phew!
