FIVE FRIDAY FAVORITES

Today I've got a few more than FIVE Friday Favorites, and I'm trying something a little different!  Today's favorites are all fashion finds, specifically Amazon fashion finds!  Y'all know I love decorating, but I love cute clothes too, especially when they're a bargain!  (*This post contains affiliate links, including Amazon.

First up is this sweater.  With almost 2K 4-star reviews, it is soft and true to size, but I wanted it a bit oversized so I sized up one.  I can't decide if I like it better with a front tuck or worn loose!  And there's the Amazon hat I shared last week again...

IT'S A COLORFUL LIFE FALL TOUR 2020- PART 1: FRONT PORCH AND MINI PUMPKIN WREATH TUTORIAL


Isn't Fall just the best???  When you can pull out your sweaters and the air turns crisp and the mornings and evenings are cool with warm days... my favorite!  I think Fall might be my favorite season to decorate for as well, it's not as elaborate or time intensive as Christmas and when I'm finished everything just feels like a big cozy hug!  Does that even make sense?!?  Ha!  I'm excited to kick off this year's It's A Colorful Life Fall Tour by sharing my front porch with you, and I'm even throwing in a little mini pumpkin wreath tutorial for the wreath that's on my front door this year.  So let's take a look!

SATURDAY SOMETHING GOOD


Hello friends, Happy Saturday!  I hope you're having a great weekend.  I started this new little Saturday Something Good series a few weeks ago as an opportunity to just take a light hearted minute to focus on the good and beautiful things I've come across online.  Hope you find these things encouraging and inspirational!  (P.S.- my Five Friday Favorites post went up super late yesterday, catch it here if you missed it!)

This delightful condo proves you don't have to have a lot of space to have a load of style!

FIVE FRIDAY FAVORITES


I hope you're all having a great Friday!  I'm super late with my post today, but I wanted to get it out anyway!  We took our girl for her first college visit today and I didn't quite get this ready before we left, thus the delay.  We've got two more visits lined up this month, whew!  She's a Senior and we had planned to make these visits last Spring, but we all know that didn't happen.  We're playing catch up!  I've got some fun fashion and a few super practical things to share with you for Five Friday Favorites today, hope you like them!   (*This post contains affiliate links, including Amazon.  As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

Last weekend I was at a ladies event seated behind a friend who had the most perfect hat on...  I've wanted a felt hat for a while but all I've seen have huge brims, way too big for me.  So, when I saw the hat my friend was wearing and noticed that the brim was just the right size, I couldn't resist asking her where she found it.   She said she would send me the info. and it was a bargain!   I ordered one immediately and it's the best $17 hat I could ever hope for!   The color I bought is "Camel" (a tiny bit darker in real life than it looks here) with a thin dark brown trim strap and buckle,  but it comes in tons of different colors and trim options. The material is a polyester/wool mix and it's a sturdy hat- the brim is stiff and not flexible.  Most hats do not fit me well (kid sized hats fit me great... ha!) but this one has an adjustable hat band inside that can be tightened if needed.  With a little adjusting it was just right for me and I am SO happy with this hat.  I think I've worn it 3 days this week, if you follow me on Instagram you've seen proof!

DIY FACE MASK NECK CHAIN


Let me start off by saying how much I hate that there's even a need for this project!  I never dreamed I'd be making a "DIY Face Mask Neck Chain" tutorial.  I know we're all so weary of dealing with this virus and I hope that you all and your families are staying healthy!  

I can't tell you how many times I've had my mask in my lap in the car, forgotten about it, and dropped it on the ground when I got out at my destination.  Or arrived at the door of a store only to realize that I left my mask in the car.  Or, left it looped on one ear while driving from place to place and having the wind blow it off before I reattach it to both ears!  This is a handy accessory to have, especially when running errands where you might be in and out of stores constantly putting your mask on and taking it off.  I do like the idea though, even after this threat has passed, for some who might still need to wear masks regularly for their job or personal health concerns.  Many thanks to my friend Carmel, I saw her mention making a mask chain on her Instagram stories and it started my wheels spinning to figure out how to make one of my own!
