Friday Favorites – September Cruising

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.


I seriously cannot believe it’s Friday!  This has been a major catchup week over here.  I was in NYC this past weekend for an exciting collaboration and it really wore this momma to be out…..not going to lie.  I  think I took a 2 hour plus nap every day after work since.  I am finally starting to feel a little more alive again and this weekend will be a very much needed break.  I hope everyone had a great week and let’s get into some current favorites!


My favorite maternity tank dress, seriously it is the best staple buy.  A great non-maternity option for just over $50 here.  Mules old Chloe but similar here and on sale.  Sunglasses Karen Walker find here.




I bought this thermal top in hopes that one day it may drop below 90 degrees here in Florida.  Seriously, it is the most comfortable thing in the entire world.  I insist you check it out.  Also, this wrap cardigan looks like something I would live in when the temps actually ever got cooler.




Love the price point on this twist front t-shirt.  This was the t-shirt that sold out like crazy during the Anniversary Sale and it’s finally back in stock.  Love the sleeves on this one.




Great read and good visuals on how to create a theme for your Instagram.  Also, love this one about what to post on Instagram when you run out of ideas.   Excellent tips on how to create brighter pictures for your blog.




All the butt lifting exercises yes please especially since mine seems to be expanding……  I’m not doing HITT workouts currently but if I was this one looks particularly effective.




I am trying to cut back on carbs at night and this Sweet Potato Noodles with Steak recipe from Missy is being added to the rotation.  Can’t wait to try it!





Okay!  Link up and tell me some favorites from your week and what your weekend plans are!  Also, sending out my love and prayers to everyone who has been affected by all these terrible weather disasters.  I have so many coworkers who have not been able to get ahold of their family members in Puerto Rico and it is breaking my heart.  I am hoping that lines of communication will open up soon so people can know that their loved ones are safe!

    That dress was made for you!! I don’t blame you on napping every day this week!! Just a normal week would wear me out when I was pregnant, without travel involved. I have a friend who is currently pregnant with #2 and her little is still a toddler and I wonder how that works?? You cant take naps all day when you have a kid who is incredibly mobile.

    Those twist front tees are so cute, I am tempted!!! Sweet potato noodles are my favorite. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Love your black dress! So cute, especially w that baby bump :). Have you tried Lularoe? I recently purchased a Carly dress, and it is so comfy with my 34 week pregnant bump! Plenty flowy, and I think it will still be super cute with a belt post-pregnancy.
