Weekend Shopping + Fun

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I feel satisfied with a weekend full of fun. Makes Monday seem a little brighter looking at these photos! Shall we start?

We went to Raleigh for the weekend and Friday night the boys wanted to go grab a few beers at a rooftop bar. I decided I would drop them off and I would go hit a few of my favorite stores! I have to make every minute count when I am in the homeland! 

Here is my haul from TJ Maxx: I was pleasantly surprised with several Kate Spade finds and some festive Halloween straws:



The polka dot sheets were a no brainer: done and done. Waking up to polka dot sheets is a good way to start your day, right?


One thing I always look for in discount stores is pretty hand soap. I picked up these from Home Goods. I would rather have a pretty bottle on the counter for $4 or $5 dollars than Dial :)


The next day I squeezed in a trip to South Point while Stephen did some yard work for his Grandma. West Elm just opened this week and I loved browsing the crowded store. I have seen lots of Raleigh bloggers share this photo but it really is cool so I'm sharing as well. This is behind their check out counter- a live greenery wall! 


I couldn't leave empty handed so I grabbed this hand towel for our guest bath:


It actually matches our shower curtain, also by West Elm. I have debated on doing the double shower curtain look. Anyone have any thoughts on this? It's a small space so I don't want it to look crowded.


Saturday night we spent at the Durham Bulls game...


And Sunday afternoon I attended a bridal shower for my sweet friend Jenna who is getting married in October....


The cake was as delicious as it was cute!


Tell me about your weekend friends!! xoxo.

I'm loving those sheets! TJ Maxx is always fun because you never know what you'll find!

p.s. Your outfits are so cute!

We totally have the same soap philosophy. I refuse to have a "normal" bottle of soap on the counter. It either has to be a pretty glass soap dispenser (I have a mercury glass one in our kitchen) or a cute plastic bottle like the ones you have!

You look so cute as always!

I love those sheets!! I've spotted KS sheets in our TJ Maxx, but they were just a plain cream color, not fun like yours! That cake is adorable!
