Lena Dunham

Friday Five

1. Girls– Okay, so I know I’m probably a little late to this party, but I felt the need to share in case any of you were still sans Lena Dunham in your life. I had bought her book, Not That Kind of Girl, a while ago on an Amazon spree, but {like many others} hadn’t gotten the chance to read it yet. Then, during a weekend long life crisis spent stressing over my life purpose, I discovered HBO’s Girls and life was okay again! Not only is Lena Dunham a literary genius full of charm and wit that has me girl crushing hard, but it’s the most relatable show I’ve ever watched. You can find a little of yourself in each of the female lead characters. I’m convinced it’s going to get me through the rest of my 20’s. Basically, if you haven’t seen it, you should probably spend your weekend binge watching!

2. Best Tote Ever– If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a million tote bags lying around your closet/entire house. But, they’re mostly Victoria’s Secret that you don’t actually want or the .99 cent grocery bag kind that you’re always forgetting to put in your car. Then, when you see a tote you actually want, it’s expensive and you feel guilty spending money on them because you’ve already got so many. Well, now’s the time to take those to Goodwill (and actually put them in your car, so you stop using plastic) because I’ve found the perfect tote bag and it’s on sale for under $30! Where does one find such an amazing deal? Target, of course!! These reversible bags are perfect for everything from the pool or beach to the farmer’s market and travel! Plus, at such a low cost, you can buy one for each of those activities!

3. H&M x CoachellaObviously, I {along with every girl in the U.S.} have been having intense Coachella F.O.M.O. I can’t be the only one who actually considered unfollowing people for the week, right?! But, I guess the next best thing is pretending you’re in the dessert by dressing the part, and H&M is here to help us out! They’ve put out a super affordable and every boho girl’s dream, Coachella themed collection to get us through all of our festival cravings. My favorite pieces are the imitation suede shorts (because I’m loving suede for spring), the adorable lace and fringe crop top (I love it in both the white and red), and of course, the “Desert Night” tank that’s perfectly suitable for lying around scrolling through everyone’s perf Coachella pics!

4. Perfect Spring Jacket– I have a serious love/hate relationship with spring weather and the only way to make it through is with a jacket that you can throw on when the chilly temps resurface! In comes Tobi to save the day and most importantly not break your budget, because the reality is you’ll really only wear something like this a few months out of the year. This vegan leather moto jacket in beautiful pastel colors is easy to wear over just about anything! I love it in the blue and lavender, but the blue is currently on sale for just $82!

5. Zinke Sale– Remember that bathing suit line that I told y’all about in a previous Friday Five post? The one with the adorable peplum one pieces and fab high waisted options?! Yeah, well, everything is now HALF OFF on their site with the code FRIENDS&FAMILY- yeah, you read that right, 50% off! I’m kind of dying inside right now and pretty sure that my summer suit wardrobe is about to be complete- and at half the cost!! Happy shopping!!
