Happy Friday! There have been very few weeks this summer where I have been this excited that it is Friday. I am sure two weeks from now will top it when I board the plane to head to Hungary but for right now, TGIF. The past few days has been filled with a ton of ups and lots of downs, but thankfully more positives than negatives. Here are five things that made me happy this week:
one. I firmly believe a bad day can be turned upside down by a cupcake. Especially one from Magnolia.
two. I came across this photo is from my first ever blog photo shoot in Washington, D.C. and it inspired me to try on the dress – and it fit! +1 to my fitness goals. I just booked my tickets for Georgetown Homecoming on Columbus Day weekend and will definitely bribe one of my friends with a drink to take outfit pictures in this same spot – on the waterfront boardwalk in front of Sequioa at sunset.
these. The softest pajamas ever! My new friends at Roudelain were kind enough to send over two pieces from their vintage wash collection in their chambray color. These capri pants and v-neck tee are available at Lord and Taylor are just so, so soft!
four. My office is only one block from the Kate Spade on 5th Avenue and I am proud of myself for walking by so often without going in. The adorable storefront beckons my name every time though and these girls with truffle heads in the windows are just too funny!
five. Birthday mail! My birthday is still a few weeks off but I guess since we are inside of a month the countdown can begin.
I hope you all had a great week, full of more ups than downs. I am off to go wine tasting tomorrow with Gilt City and I am tremendously excited, make sure you are following along on social for the journey!

The maxi dress looks so lovely on you and the cupcake looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing!
What a fun post!! I love close to a mall, and Ive rained my eyes and neck not to look on to stores! Haha
I couldn’t agree more with the cupcake one! I’m a sugar-junkie, so a cupcake never fails to cheer me up xx

That 5th Ave Kate Spade store was the destination for so many of paychecks last summer… the shopgirls in there are SOOOO convincing!
You look very pretty in your first blog photo! I’m looking for new pjs. I might go to Lord & Taylor tomorrow and try to find those from Roudelain.

Great post Kelly! Love the cupcake at Kate Spade. Super jealous of those pjs from Roudelain! I have to check those out at Lord and Taylor. You are so luck to live in NY! Not much here in Pocatello, ID in terms of high fashion 🙂
Cupcakes do make everything better 😉 Hope you have fun on the wine tasting tomorrow!

I love Roudelain lounge wear! It is so comfy and it can be worn for sleep or the street 🙂
Wow, this model with cake on the head is so funny 🙂
I would be in Kate Spade all the time, good for you for resisting!
