Alison’s Friday Favorites

TGIF Pretties and welcome to another edition of Friday Favorites!  If you’re new around here, Alison’s Friday Favorites is a weekly list of anything that makes my life a little easier, prettier or happier.  Here are a few things that checked those boxes this week.

Favorite #1 – Date Night Outfit

Spring in Texas means one thing – dinner on a patio!  Craig was out of town again last week so when he got back this weekend, we quickly planned a date night.  The weather was gorgeous so we had our first official patio dinner date of the year. I wore my new striped bell sleeved top with my frayed hem jeans.  Seriously though, I need a striped shirt intervention. This is like the 20th one I’ve bought in the past few years (but it was only $18). #thosebellsleevesgotme

I also wore my new rose gold huarache sandals which are incredibly comfy and a totally 80’s throwback but one that I actually love.  Sizing Info: Top runs a little big (I’m wearing XS), jeans are true to size.

Favorite #2 – Floral Bomber:  Found!


[Floral Bomber Jacket:  Same]

Ever since I decided to put a floral bomber jacket on the Spring 2017 GYPO Style Challenge shopping list, I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect one.  All this time, I thought I wanted one with a dark background.  Imagine my surprise when I fell for this lighter one!  I think it will look perfect with blush jeans and that black tassel zipper pull had me at hello.  Can’t wait to pair this up in my spring outfits!  Sizing Info:  Jacket runs a size small.  I bought a medium.

Favorite #3 – Mrs. Meyer’s 

There’s something about spring that turns me into a cleaning machine (don’t worry, this phenomenon doesn’t happen at other times of the year) Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products just smell like spring to me.  That radish scent is mesmerizing but so is basil and lavender and lemon verbena.  How else could I explain sniffing the kitchen counters that I’m finding excuses to spray a few times a day?  (Psst – If you’re a fan of Mrs. Meyer’s too, now’s a great time to stock up with this buy one, get one 50% off)

    Alison, How does the sizing in the H&M Jeans run? I’ve never tried them before but they look awfully cute on you!

  • Susan Jeffries

    Love all of your picks!! One question about the jacket. Did you order your normal size or size up? It looks a bit small. Thanks!

    • Thanks Susan. The bomber jacket runs a little small. I got a medium and it’s perfect. 🙂

      • Susan Jeffries

        Thanks! I ordered the small because the medium is sold out. Hopefully it will work. I picked up the top too – as well as a really cute black and white tee for spring break! Thanks!

  • I love all the stripes and ruffle sleeves! This top is no exception. Super cute!

  • Sue W.

    Love this outfit, Alison! I can relate to your need for “a striped shirt intervention!” I laughed out loud as I need one too! Enjoy your weekend!

  • I am loving that bomber! And the rose gold sandals are perfect. And that top is super adorable, too! Thanks for linking up with me this week!


  • sucha great outfit!! love it!

  • shootingstarsmag

    Ooh love the bomber. I’m really liking the trend of bomber jackets in general.

    I was wondering if I could wear a tassel necklace with horizontal stripes, so I am glad to see this combo!
