It's practically the weekend, and I'm totally let's jump right in to The Friday Five...

1) Ever since we painted the Dining Room pink (oh yes we did, see it here), the drapes in the Breakfast Room are no longer jiving with me. You can see them from the Dining Room, and the dark pink of the drapes clashes with the pink walls. And honestly, it's a little too much pink. (Wha?! Who said that!?)

2) Several of you sweet people complimented my legs in the {Outfit Inspiration} post yesterday. First of all, thank you! But I must confess, it's totally an optical illusion. The magic is in the wedges. I picked them up at the beginning of the Summer, and have worn them constantly. And every single time, someone compliments my shoes and legs. The neutral color and wedge heel lengthen (and thin!) the leg, and they are actually quite comfortable. So I'd say they were a good investment...especially since they're affordable.

3) But if you've already moved on to Boot Season, these are my all-time favorites. My Fall uniform is skinny jeans, tee, colorful scarf, and these boots. Easy, comfy and totally pulled together! I've had my pair for 2 years and they are still going strong. I'm a cheapskate when it comes to sandals, but I've learned the hard way it pays to spend a little more for good boots.
