Weekending + Links

look to love
With chilly temperatures seeming like they will never end, I'm looking for cold weather inspiration, and I've fallen in love with this cozy + chic look {though I would need about 15 more layers in the snow}.

As of late, fresh flowers have really been brightening up my days. This weekend, pick up some for yourself or for a friend.

let's get some shoes
Can someone please take me on a tropical getaway with these shoes? I came across these in Pinterest, and they're quite a steal, too. I'll take a pair and a pina colada, please and thank you.

Sunday celebrates two special birthdays: my best friend Sarah's and my grandmother's. Though I have to celebrate with the bff from afar {she lives in Oklahoma}, I am excited to see my grandmother and ring in her 73rd birthday. P.S. how delicious does this cake look?

Speaking of my grandmother, I wrote an impromptu post last night that is much more personal than you normally see in these parts. It was on a topic that has been weighing on my heart so heavily that it it sometimes overwhelming, and it was very therapeutic to write it out. It's amazing what a keyboard and a blank page can do for your soul, along with prayers and inspiration.

I'm headed back home again this weekend! Cheers to a wonderful one!


  1. Ohh LOVE those shoes! And that cute snow day outfit but lets be real, if I was out there in that snow I'd have about 30 more layers on haha! Happy Friday!

    See what I have to say at:

  7. Those shoes are too cute! Hurry up warm weather! Have fun celebrating your grandmother this weekend! I also just read your post on her below. ALS is such a terrible and scary disease! I work with a lot of patients that have it and it just heart breaking! I'm glad to hear that she still has her voice and is still able to live her life! I'm sure she is so special to you!

  8. Love the quote, Zelle :) And those shoes are pretty amazing as well. Happy weekend!

  9. Fresh flowers are always my go-to when I'm feeling a little down (and to be honest, this weather could get even the most positive person down!)
    It's really great having a Sam's nearby so I can stop in and pick up a bunch and not break the bank :)
