Happy Friday everyone!  It's been a while since I shared favorites with you so I had a super long list, but I narrowed it down to these five for today.  (*This post contains affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.)

This Blue and White Dress is a new favorite, I love cute Summer dresses that actually have sleeves!  The fabric is a beautiful linen-blend jungle toile design.  There are several more colors and patterns in the same style, but I looked at them all in store and the fabric content is a bit different on the others.  Still good, but this is definitely the most expensive looking one (but you won't believe the price!).  It runs a little large, I sized down one and still had plenty of room.

These Better Homes and Gardens beach towels are just about the most perfect pool towels ever.  They're BIG (40x72"!), thick, soft, and have a different color stripe on the reverse side.  AND, they're on clearance!! I couldn't choose a favorite and the majority of our beach towels have seen better days, so I got 2 black/gray striped and 2 blue/green.  Honestly, amazing quality and deal!  I ordered online on Wednesday and they were at my door on Thursday!  :)

These bangles are all the rage, but more than I was willing to pay.  Eventually I came across these basically identical gold bracelets that were in my budget, but my size was sold out so I waited and waited for the shop owner to restock- she goes to Thailand on a buying trip and picks everything out herself from the local markets!  They are fused with a metal clasp and filled with 24K gold leaf on the inside. I highly recommend this seller, she offers a variety of sizes and designs and has great customer service.  Be sure to use her sizing guide provided for a good fit- mine are 7 1/2 in the thick design.   I love these because they're completely lightweight, soundless (my bracelet stack usually jingles too much!), worry free through security when traveling, and can be worn anywhere... gym, pool, or beach!

Have you heard the news?  Schumacher has a new line at Williams Sonoma!  So you know what that means... our favorite dragon is now gracing plates, mugs, ice buckets, ginger jars, duvet covers, redesigned pillows... so many things!  Hmmm... I have a birthday coming up this month and I think I've just added several things to my wish list!

My last fave for today is a combo of a couple of great sales and some pieces I snagged.  After seeing my friend wearing several pairs of joggers-that-don't-look-like-joggers at church, I asked her to share her source.  They were all from Athleta, and although I'm a big Gap/Old Navy shopper I had never shopped there!  I stopped by our local store and was an immediate fan.  I found these pants and they're absolutely my new fave.  Why?  They're workout pants that don't look like workout pants... they feel like leggings but look polished! See how normal they look with a regular top?  I shared them on my Instagram stories and am really wishing that I had thought to take a still shot, but I didn't.  So, here's an awkward screenshot from my video!  :)

They're a thick nylon/lycra fabric with a high waist.  They zip up the back which I thought could be annoying but it's really not an issue at all.  I do feel that they might run a tad big- I usually wear an 8/10 in pants and bought an 8 and a 6 in these in two different colors.  The 6 isn't too small at all and I honestly don't notice much difference between the two.  If you're in between sizes you can definitely go down, they have some give in them.  I see myself wearing these a lot in the future!  (PS- I bought the white top on clearance at the mall in Hawaii.  So many people asked about it in my video that I found it online but it's regular price and a different color...still super cute and a great color for Fall!)

It's no secret, end of season clearance sales are my favorite time to shop!  Gap is taking an extra 50% off of all markdowns, and I see plenty of things that will finish out the Summer and lots of cooler weather items as well.  I'm a big fan of their leggings and workout pullovers, popover tops, and Summer tops among other things.  I bought this top recently (see a peek below if you're not too distracted by my gigantic hat!) and picked up some new leggings, a sweater, and some things for my son a few days ago.

Best time to shop, lots of great MENS and KIDS items in the sale as well. My son needed some shirts, shorts and khakis for school so we stocked up for him too- plenty of $10-20 deals!

I hope you all have a great weekend, this is our last one together before the boy heads to college next weekend!  #passthetissues
