Friday Five

We made it friends, it's finally Friday. This was my first full week back from work which was a pretty harsh reality for me. Having plenty of work to do definitely made the week go by a little faster but I am very glad that the week is finally over. I'm looking forward to having a somewhat relaxing weekend because for the first time in awhile I don't have much on my plate!

Here is what I'm loving this week:

Recently Zooey Deschanel teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger for a new summer collection and literally everything in the collection is so cute. I've got my eyes on this Maxi Dress but there are so many wonderful pieces for spring and summer. I love Zooey's quirky style and it definitely shines through in plenty of the items in this collection.

I've been plowing through the Divergent books and last Wednesday I finished the second book, Insurgent. Now I'm anxiously waiting for book 3 to arrive in the mail and I'm (finally) seeing the movie tonight! I definitely have Divergent Fever!

Ever since returning from Costa Rica, I've been struck with the wanderlust bug. I really want to plan another trip for the beginning of summer so I started looking at flights to Chicago. My cousin lives there  and I try to get out and visit once a year. It is one of my favorite cities to visit because there is so much to do, especially in the summer. I'm hoping to plan a trip when they are having one of their several festivals so we can be outside. 

Does anyone else have a hard time finding comfortable sandals? I find myself always gravitating towards flip flops because the hard bottoms on most sandals really bother my feet. Last weekend I finally found the perfect sandal because it incorporates rubber into the bottom of the sandal so it bends with my foot as I walk. I love them so much I think I want to purchase them in navy also!

I just wrapped up Girls season 3 which was a huge step up from this disappointing second season. This show has a way of making me laugh out loud one second and then cringe from secondhand embarrassment the next. Now I'm looking for another new show to fill the void--- any recommendations?

What are you loving this week?
