Friday Favorites

     Hey Friday, it's good to see you again.   It seems like April has flown by!  This month has been a busy one, but I have enjoyed it.  The other day I just realized that summer is less than two months away.  I am looking forward to that glorious sunny day {to be exact, June 20 is the first day of summer}!  Today's edition of Friday Favorites include everything from an adorable DIY to a funny story.  I hope y'all enjoy! ;)   


1. Favorite Idea 

I have always wanted to make a giant balloon arch for a party.  I especially love the one below with all of the colors.  Maybe I'll make one for a special celebration this upcoming year. ;)

If you know me, you know that one of my obsessions are anchors.  I absolutely love the nautical look.  It reminds me of the beach and New England summers!

Life Lately....

Happy Monday everyone!    

     I don't know about you, but to me, it seemed like the weekend flew by!  Like I do at the end of each month, today's post is going to be an Instagram roundup.  As always, you can follow me on Instagram @nrousch.     



This is my favorite maxi dress I own!  I have had it for a few years and still wear it all the time.  I love the floral pattern and  bright colors!

3. Favorite Outfit

 This spring I have been gravitating towards the color blue.  Maybe because it reminds me of the beach and all things summer.  Blue has always been my favorite color after all!

Collab: 3 Classic Spring Looks

     Hey everyone!  The weather has been absolutely beautiful lately.  You really can't go wrong with 80 degrees and sunshine!  I am excited about today's post because it is a collab with my sweet friend Sydney from Anchored in the South.  You will fall in love with her blog just like I did!  Now without further ado, let's get on to three of my favorite looks for spring!


1. Flowy and Floral   


Nothing screams spring like floral!  I'm sure you all have noticed that I have a slight obsession with floral tops.  I was going through my closet the other day and honestly, I didn't realize how many floral tops I had.  Floral tops are so versatile.  You can wear them with jeans, skirts, colored shorts, white pants, etc.

 2. Keep it Neutral

 There is nothing like a classic, neutral outfit.  I love adding an unexpected pop of color to an all neutral outfit. This look was inspired by Audrey Hepburn {of course!}  She is definitely my #1 style icon. ;) 

















3.  Classically Layered for Spring

    Don't pack all your sweaters away quite yet!  There are still some chilly days in the spring.  This is probably my most favorite outfit out of all three because of how elegant and classy it is.  I could not find a sweater similar to the one I am wearing.  I got it from Ann Taylor a few years ago.  A sweater paired with a statement necklace would work just as well though!  I linked a few of my favorite sweaters, t-shirts and necklaces below. 



 


 


Be sure to check out Sydney's post!  Have a lovely day!


Until next time,

Friday Favorites

       Happy Friday friends!  I am excited about this Friday for one reason!  You'll just have to keep on reading to the end of this post to find out why. ;)  This week, the weather has been so nice!  It felt like summer, but it wasn't miserably hot.  The weekend looks like it's going to be gorgeous as well!  Keep on reading to see what has been inspiring me this week...  


1. Favorite Outfit

I'm sure you all have noticed that I prefer classic pieces over trendy pieces.  Don't get me wrong, there are some trends I really like!  One of those trends is off the shoulder tops!  I LOVE off the shoulder tops!  Especially, the one below.  My favorite part, of course, is the navy and white stripes.

5. Favorite Quote

I have learned that it is better just to trust God instead of questioning Him.  One day you will understand why He closed that door.
