5 on Friday

One. Yoga Slings

I was at the gym a couple of weeks ago, pretending to know how to work the weight machines, and looked down and saw the cutest shoes on the girl next to me. I caught her attention over the noise in her earbuds and began interrogating her about them (I wish this was an exaggeration). She explained they were called yoga slings and the sole was a yoga mat--SOLD. As soon as I got home I added them to my amazon cart. They are made by Sanuk and the most comfortable flip flop to ever grace my feet. The straps are made of t-shirt material!

I begin to tell my sister all about my "new" discovery and she informs me that these are not new and have been a "thing" for quite some time. So maybe I'm not at the forefront of a major trend..but I love them all the same! They come in lots of fun colors. (affiliate banner below) 

Two. Favorite Posts

With summer peeking its head through it's easy to get wrapped up in our bodies and wishing we had smaller hips, bigger boobs, flatter tummies, and so on. I talked about my swimsuit dilemma here. It was so refreshing to read some great posts from fellow lady bloggers about the struggle. Lindsay's post I Have a Big Butt (and that's ok) is spot on regarding female shaming and learning to accept features we may not love about ourselves. When I read Sarah from Venus Trapped in Mars' post title Where Are All the Mediums it was like a chorus of angels.  If you're a medium girl (I am!) embrace it! 

Three. This Month's Rocksbox

I am officially drinking the Rocksbox kool-aid after receiving my box this month! All the deets about the subscription box here. I received these three beautiful pieces.

I have been wanting a Kendra Scott piece for quite sometime but hadn't been willing to fork over the cash blindly. I added these Emerald Elle earrings to my wishlist and scored them in my box this month! I love Rockbox because you can try out expensive pieces before committing to them..or just wear them for the month and send back :) 

I've been wearing the Gorjana Elea Cuff on repeat! Perfect addition to my arm party. 

I wear LOTS of blue so I was happy to get this Perry Street statement necklace!

Four. Flipping for Flamingos

Have you all seen Kate Spade's flamingo additions for the season? They are all so cute and festive! I have a neighbor that literally has 15 flamingos in her yard at all times..winter included. I don't love flamingos as much as her but I do have some of these on my wishlist...especially that cuff

  1. Whoa, whoa! Those sandals are super cool!! I haven't heard of them either so no worries. I need to go get some.

  2. I have never heard of those sandals either but am certain I need a pair! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing my post; I'm thrilled people connected with it. And I like the flamingo trend; not something I'd normally wear, but that cuff is great! Happy Friday, friend!

  3. I absolutely LOVE those KS Elle earrings! I have a could but I'm always looking to add more. Haha

    Those sandals sound AMAZING. I had never heard of them.

  4. Those flip flops look super comfy. I haven't heard of them either. I think that gold cuff is lovely!

  5. Waiiiit wait wait. Can you actually work out in the yoga slings?! You and I must have been under the same rock because I've never heard of them either but how awesome!

  6. Love those sandals! Your jewelry is gorgeous just like you!!! Have an amazing weekend!!

  7. I've seen a lot of posts about the Rockbox, I might need to look into that a little more! Happy Friday!

  8. I've been loving all the flamingo Kate Spade pieces that are out right now too!! They are all so fun! :) Have a fantastic weekend, Brittany! xo - Brenda // Chatting Over Chocolate

  9. I've been a fan of the yoga sandals for awhile now. Haven't bought them but wear them around the store a lot haha. I think it's such a great idea, right?

    Not done Rockbox yet, but have heard awesome things. DO you get a free trial?

    I love flamingos -- hello PINK -- so I'm hoping to clean up a bit on the KS line.

  10. I haven't tried Rocksbox yet, but I've read great things about it and I LOVE the items you got. I may have to try it out!

    I'm also loving those sandals. I'm a comfy shoe kind of gal and those are super cute, too. (You're not the only one who didn't know these were a thing for a while now - this is the first I've heard of them or seen them!)

  11. I have never heard of yoga sandals before so I am even less on trend than you so don't feel bad, lol. I love Rocksbox so much! Your pieces are GORGEOUS! How do you like the Kendra earrings? Are they heavy?

  12. Ok...Those sandals are too cool I'm going to have to get a pair! Happy Friday!

  13. Those yoga sandals look so cozy!!!

  14. I must look into those yoga sandals. They must be comfortable!

    1. They are great! What's better than walking on a yoga mat?!?

  15. Blue is DEFINITELY your color!! looks awesome on ya.

  16. Haha, I want some of those yoga slings real bad! They're kind of new to me too...apparently I missed them becoming a thing too. :P

    And YAY for Rocksbox! It's my favorite. :)

  17. I have never heard about those sandals. They look so comfy. THAT BLUE NECKLACE (insert heart eyed emoji) so cute. I would so rock that.

  18. I've never heard of those sandals either and may have to check them out! They look very comfortable!

  19. Looks like you got a good RocksBox this month! I'm hoping mine is in the mail today, maybe with some of those gorgeous Kendra Scott earrings!!

  20. I've been thinking of getting Rockbox for awhile now... you might have just sold me! Also, yoga shoes?! They look so comfortable!!

  21. I definitely have never heard of those sandals either, how cool?!! With Rockbox you get to keep them for a whole month? That is kinda nice- I assumed you had to send back within like 3 days like some other subscription services!

  22. LOVE your rocksbox goodies! I hope they start delivering to Canada soon :( Have a great weekend!

  23. That Perry Street Statement necklace is the perfect shade of blue! I'm thinking about trying out rocksbox, we'll see! Have a wonderful weekend!

  24. Yoga slings are new to me - I'm intrigued! And what a fantastic Rocksbox you got this month, I love all of the pieces!

  25. I love those sandals! I've never seen them before either so I will definitely be spending some of my afternoon researching them now! They look like a good go to sandal for summer!

  26. All this Rocksbox makes me so happy. That necklace is so pretty, and I love that bracelet as well. I hope you had a great weekend Brittany!

  27. I got a pair of those same Kendra Scotts as my matron of honor gift in a wedding a year ago and have been obsessed ever since. So happy she just opened a store in Nashville (also, dangerous information!).
