Friday Five

FF

Happy Friday! After an on-the-go week, I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend. A few weeks ago I started a new job as a copy editor at Caesars Entertainment, which I am loving! On Tuesday we took a work field trip to The LINQ with a plan to see Grumpy Cat at Kitson and ride the High Roller. Unfortunately the line was ridiculously long to see the cultural phenomenon that is Grumpy Cat, but I was able to ride the 550-foot-tall observation wheel. We went right at sunset and I loved seeing the amazing views of the Strip and surrounding valley. Even though it wouldn’t be my first pick of places to live, Vegas definitely does have its perks.

I’ve decided to make my “Friday Five” posts into a series, so every week I will post a few highlights from the week. Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Friday Five

friday

Wahoo it’s almost the weekend! I think I actually enjoy Friday more than the weekend itself because you are in a relaxed, excited mindset knowing that you have two days of freedom ahead of you. Plus, casual Friday dress codes allow for some flexibility with your fashion decisions. I love being able to wear jeans instead of a skirt or dress pants! To start off a fun-filled weekend, I decided to share five of my favorite photos from the week.

Weekend Looks

Ah, the weekend! Time to take a break from the work clothes and show off your casual sense of style. On days off, I love taking advantage of being able to wear trends I wouldn’t sport at the office. Sometimes a girl just wants to wear a funky graphic tee and distressed boyfriend jeans. These outfits are proof that comfy and casual can also be chic.

Give your hair a rest from heat and styling. A loose, messy bun is perfect for the weekend – stylish, simple and sophisticated.

Fall and flannel go together like peanut butter and jelly. For a sophisticated style, choose a plaid pattern that is subtle and incorporates neutral colors, such as tans and blues. Create this weekend-chic ensemble with distressed denim, a leather jacket and a knit infinity scarf.

Graphic tees with distressed boyfriend jeans create a fun, laid-back vibe. The studded heels dress up the look, but fashion-forward flats would look great, too. The camo jacket and cross-body bag complete this trendy look.

Egg & Sausage Crescent Roll Ring

Mmm, breakfast! Nothing is better than something cooking in kitchen on a weekend morning! Especially buttery, flaky crescent rolls that taste as amazing as they smell. I decided to throw in some other favorite ingredients, such as maple sausage, scrambled eggs and cheese, to make this delightful meal! Biting into the crispy, yet chewy crust gives way to the cheesy, flavorful filling. What more could you ask for?! It’s great for brunch or to split between only a couple of people if you’re really hungry! I could have easily eaten at least half… it’s that good! Plus it’s really simple to make and doesn’t require many ingredients. Enjoy :)
