Happy FriYay!  My kids have been away on a choir trip this week, so we slipped out of town for a couple of days for a bit of R&R- or actually, a lot of shopping!  We're scouting for furnishings for the patio project that I shared yesterday and the new living room sofa that I'm hunting for.  My sweet husband is happy to be my chauffeur as we hit all of the fun stores that we don't have in OKC.  So, for some Friday blog fun, here's what's caught my eye lately!

Speaking of the Patio Project, I'm checking out these chairs from Ikea today for our outdoor dining space.  Does anyone have them?  What do you think?  Do they hold up well?

I absolutely adore this clutch that Beth from designPOST Interiors embellished for her recent DIY Summer School project.  You all know I love a good tassel, and I'm searching for just the right piece so I can replicate something like this!

Chip and Jo Jo... you know them, you love them.  I love this video where Joanna shares how the Lord has led her to the place she is today, and how although she didn't always understand how He was working, she followed His call for her life each step of the way and now he has given her more than she ever imagined possible.  Such a great testimony!

This dress is my favorite recent purchase!  I bought the black and the cream with black stripes in store, and couldn't resist ordering the orange one online the other night.  It's soft and comfy, and this photo doesn't really show the true shape but it's a swing dress.  So, it's fitted at the top and nice and loose and flow-y (cool!) from the waist down.  I also love that there are sleeves (I'm not a big sleeveless girl).  And, if you're an Old Navy cardholder, it's an extra 40% off right now, making the grand total right around $16!

And while I was at it, I got this one for my daughter.  She's not a big shopper, yet we're at the stage where she has to approve what I bring home.  I'm sure this one will be a winner... it's soft and comfy, not pink, and not too fancy.  Just what she likes.  This will be perfect to wear now, but she can add leggings and boots with a sweater to it for the Fall.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.  I'm looking forward to seeing you next week-  I have a crazy exciting <pinch me> announcement to make!

    Thank you for including my little purse! I can totally see you carrying this! And I love swing dresses!

  2. Jennifer, my oldest daughter bought those chairs from Ikea several years ago for her apartment. She has used them indoors for the most part (are now sitting on her screened porch), and she LOVES them. She has three dogs and they have held up well to them as well. And, love Joanna. I had so much fun going through her shop in Waco when our youngest was at Baylor.

  3. Thanks Lauren! We did purchase them so it's good to know they will last a while! We sat in them last night for dinner and they were very comfortable. I'm looking for an outdoor sofa as well and really with they offered the same style as the chair in a sofa version. We visited Magnolia this Spring, now I want to go back when the Silos are open this Fall! ;)
