Weekending + The Bachelor Recap

TGIF! This has been quite the week - today is the final day of a work event I've been planning for awhile so wish me luck! I'm excited to see it finally come to fruition, but hoping that everything will go well! The rest of the weekend will be spent with friends and family, which I'm definitely looking forward to, especially after this hectic week. And today, I'm sharing some of my fave online links + a few thoughts on The Bachelor.

- This may be my most favorite outfit I've ever blogged...
- Definitely need to try this power smoothie recipe.
- With this gorgeous weather comes pollen -- check out these tips for beating your allergies.
- Tortoiseshell is no longer just the color of my fave pair of sunnies -- it's a hair trend too. 
- Love the Bachelor/Bachelorette? Check out these style secrets from the Bachelor stylist. 

Speaking of The Bachelor, I'm also sharing a few of thoughts on this season's finale -- I think this was one of my favorite seasons ever for several reasons. 1. It never ceases to amaze me how some of the girls act. 2. I absolutely loved Lauren and JoJo! They were two of my favorites throughout the entire season so having them as the final two was perfect. I had a feeling Lauren would end up winning Ben's heart, and I love how happy they looked on Monday's episode. Here's to hoping they make it work! And how about JoJo being the new Bachelorette?! Yes, please. Can't wait for May 23rd. And check out these 10 reasons JoJo will be the ultimate Bachelorette. 

JoJo and Lauren also have incredible style - I loved their style on the show and love it IRL as well. I am beyond in love with the dress Lauren wore for Monday night's After the Final Rose, but I'm pretty sure I won't be dropping over $1,000 for this Jonathan Simkhai number any time soon. I did prefer Lauren's cobalt blue dress for the finale, which you can shop here or easily borrow via Rent the Runway.

Love Lauren's white dress but not ready to spend quite that much? Shop some of my lacy favorites.

I did love our new Bachelorette's style for the finale - her makeup was flawless and she definitely had that "I'm still sexy even though you dumped me" look going on. She wore this bandeau dress and looked stunning - so I can't wait to see her style on the next season of The Bachelorette.

I hope you all have a great weekend!
