Friday’s Favorite Things - 1.13.12

although he's my cousin, he really is more like a brother, and my friend!  Enjoy your day!

1. Ann Taylor Loft - Petite Stripe Button Down Back Sweater (purchased in Fiery Orange)
We had a couple really gorgeous fall days in NYC this past week, in January.  I decided to walk 30 blocks to burn some calories, and so I really didn’t mean to stop over at Ann Taylor Loft, it just sorta happened.  And it also seemed as though those Christmas sales were still going on.  I decided to purchase this cute orange & white striped sweater which actually has buttons going down the back.  It’s so unique.  Here is the best part - when my bill rang up, this sweater was an additional 50% off the already reduced price, don’t you just love it when that happens?  ~ $50 (sale) $30 (after 50% off) $15 @ Ann Taylor Loft

2. H&M - Cardigan (purchased in black)
My husband and I were scheduled to watch The Descendants (highly recommended) at 8 pm, and so we had about 2 hours to burn before the movie.  I dragged him to all my stores down 5th Avenue and found this all season cardigan at H&M.  When it comes to purchasing a black cardigan, you seriously don’t need to use much logic because everyone should own a few good black cardigans, am I right?  Thanks VS!  ~ $25 @ H&M  

3. French Loop Stackable Server 
Last summer my friend, Jhiane, gave me this Stackable Server as a birthday gift.  I thought it was such a thoughtful gift since she knows how much I love to bake and showcase my work of art (yeah right).  I finally got around to assembling it and it sits high on my kitchen counter.  For now I’m using the server as a fruit basket, and when I have guests over I will use it as a dessert platter.  And incase you’re wondering, yeah, bananas are my favorite fruit.  Thanks so much Jhiane, I LOVE IT!  ~ birthday gift

  3. I love that server! So functional! And I would love to wear one of those sweaters and cozy up next to a fire with a book! Happy Friday! Thank you for all the sweet comments on my blog! You are the sweetest!

  4. The server is a great gift, I have clicked over to that link and there is a lot of great stuff on the site.
    Since I am in Texas, sweaters are not worn all that much, but I do love them-the cardigan looks like a good basic essential to have.
    Hope you are enjoying the weekend and thanks for your recent comments on my blog!

  5. You can never have too many black cardigans! And that one is a bit unique, so it's in a league of it's own!!

  6. I haven't had a chance to shop recently (thanks to crazy work hours!) but I have had a moment to catch up on reading and I am LOVING "Something Blue."

  7. Thank you all! The server is a really sweet and thoughtful gift, I agree. @Ameena - I need to get into reading, I just read magazines and personal growth type books. :)
