follow friday

It’s finally Friday. This seems to be one of the longest weeks I’ve had in a while! The rest of the world will move on with their daily lives in the upcoming days, and we in New Orleans will take a much-needed break, and celebrate! Celebrate the Mardi Gras season. Follow me on instagram @luckygirlfinds for my photo updates and twitter as well!

*Also, looking for inspiration this weekend? Head to my Facebook page, and follow me on pose {oh and don’t forget pinterest}!

{tangerine tango}

This color has been declared the color of 2012! You have probably seen it all over the place by this point, but here a are a few tangerine tango  pieces I’m currently craving.

tunic, anorak, pants, dress, purse, suede heels, vase ,dress, necklace 

spots, dots and circles

Lately I have been seeing spots, literally. I feel like everything I have been buying is either polka dot or striped. Below are a few of my favorite spotted and dotted items!

 

top, dress, scarf, bracelets, skirt, iPad case, pillows, butter dish 

olsenboye {made in the shade}

You can probably tell by now I LOVE sunglasses {here and here}. Olsenboye is a line created by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen exclusively for JC Penney. The sunglasses are so darling and look very similar to their higher-end versions done for  Elizabeth and James. For only $15 you too can be styled like an Olsen.

Need a Valentine’s treat for Tuesday? These are super easy to make and are absolutely delicious! I must tell you it does require a little mess, but cleanup is easy. All you need is a bag of Pretzel Rods, Almond Bark {chocolate or vanilla}, and fun colored sprinkle.

1. Melt almond bark in 30 second intervals in the microwave, dip pretzels in melted chocolate

2. Pour sprinkles over melted chocolate immediately

3. Use a counted top edge to let pretzels dry {I put aluminum foil on the ground to catch the drippings}

4. Enjoy!

*to individually wrap use a plastic bag and a small piece of ribbon, and cut out hearts from colored paper to personalize!

inspired by NYFW fall 2012

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and I have been overwhelmed by the amount of black I have been seeing on the runways. Black is great and everything…. but my eye always tends to go towards color. I absolutely love the color combination of the Corey Lynn Calter look below. So much so,  I went directly to my closet to try the pastel, and grey on grey look!

friday finds {heels}

Sometimes I come across a shoe, so different, so unique, and right on trend, that I must have them! Even if I only wear them a few times. Well this is a pair I purchased this week, so classy and high-end inspired, but only $49.9o. {gotta love Zara’s e-commerce} Not to mention these will be perfect for Spring and Summer cocktail parties and weddings!
