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 – Graduation

Aubrey’s graduation is happening tomorrow! On some level I’m still completely in denial that this is happening.  I’ve spent the past few months keeping myself distracted from the reality of it.  Thankfully she’s decided to spend a year at home and take online courses which makes the transition MUCH easier – for both of us.  🙂

Here’s a pic from her senior prom which was last weekend.  Stocking up on tissues!

Favorite #2 – Easy Summer Accessories

OK, so we all know that accessories are a crucial part of any wardrobe BUT especially in the summer and especially for us girls in the south.  I’ve been picking up some really cute pieces from the Summer 2017 GYPO Style Challenge shopping list – including these cute tassel earrings. They’ll add exactly what I need to dress up my daily uniform of tank tops and shorts when it’s over a hundred degrees.  P.S. First time Baublebar customers get 15% off!

Favorite #3 – Summer Challenge Facebook Group

I seriously wish I could bottle up the magic of our private Facebook group from the GYPO Style Challenge and share it with the rest of the world! It’s the happiest place on earth.  Instead I’m going to start sharing more about the group and it’s fabulous members on GYPO.

Meet Traci!  She’s one of the brightest spots in the Facebook groups and truly one of the most supportive, encouraging and inspirational people I’ve ever met.  Check out some of the outfits she styled during the spring challenge.  I can’t wait to see what she puts together for summer!

    Your daughter is beautiful! So glad you get another year with her! I love being a member of the GYPO Style Challenge FaceBook Group. So many wonderful women lifting each other up. I have enjoyed getting to know more about everyone over the last week. Traci definitely is an inspiration. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s outfits!

  • OH my goodness graduation! She looks gorgeous in that dress, so fun! Glad that you get another year with her, mine is just starting 1st grade next year and I’m already sad about it, that’s like practically graduating, hehe. Enjoy all of the fun festivities!

    Congratulations on the graduation of your daughter – how wonderful and what a BEAUTY! Also, thanks so much for keeping things affordable on your blog! It is so refreshing!

  • Your daughter has a beautiful smile just like her mama! My daughter is a senior and judging by how fast this year flew by I know senior year is going to be a whirlwind! I can’t even think about it! So glad you get to keep her another year!
