Friday Five Under $50

A short post week here - shorter than it's already been shortened to - because it's been cold, and I haven't wanted to leave the house. On Monday, when I had to go out for a visit to the Apple store, I had every intention of taking outfit photos, however I texted my friend to see if she could meet me for coffee after my genius bar appointment. As I was catching up with her the sun was slowly setting, and when she suggested going to see a movie, which after a quick check on my phone was going to be starting in 15 minutes, I knew outfit photos were just not going to happen.

Lack of blog posts aside, I probably had the most fun on a January bank holiday that I've had in years. We went to see I, Tonya, which I enjoyed, and evidently you can get wine in the movie theaters now, so a plastic cup of pinot grigio almost seemed obligatory.

I'm definitely thinking that wrap top will be making it's way into my cart during the next sale at Banana Republic, and how cute is the ring bag from Target? I love the little scarf on the ring - I'm going to have to try tying one on to my own ring bag!

  1. Outfit photos or no outfit photos, if you had fun on a bank holiday, that's really what matters. There are no long weekends in Canada in January which makes it a very long month indeed and I admit, I'm envious. I also admit that I am seriously eyeing those studded booties. I had a similar pair years ago that I wore to death, literally, the soles basically fell to pieces. I'm wondering if now might not be the time to replace them!

  2. Wine in theaters?? It's been too long since I've been to a movie and I really want to see I, Tonya! Love those cool fringe earrings!

  3. You'll find a perfect wrap top soon! Even if it takes you 20 different ones, haha.
    Yea, I want to go to one of the movie theaters that serve dinner, hehe (Except that would be $$$)

  4. I actually bought those boots in red from BooHoo lately!! They've been my absolute fave, and you'll see them on my blog sometime next week!!

  5. I saw I, Tonya this week, too, and that it was so interesting! I remember the scandal so well because I started figure skating soon after that :)

  6. I'm really excited to see that movie - and the theatre I frequent also, blessedly, does wine so I'm basically counting down the moments until I can make it happen!

  7. First, I like that wrap top. Secondly, you can get drinks at the movies?! Wow! I know there are a few place here that do meals but I don't think they do alcohol...I'm going to need to check that out, haha. Not been to the movies in years so I might just be behind the times!

    I like the studded boots and the bag, nice Chloe inspired pieces without the price tag.

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend! We're going to have a quiet one here after a similarly quiet week, as we've been a bit under the weather.

  8. Wine is the best thing to happen to movie theaters in a long time. ;-)

  9. Oh my gosh, I would love a glass of wine while watching a movie! Why didn't they start that sooner!? Love that Target bag! It looks so much more expensive than it is too! The scarf on the ring is such a fun detail!

  10. ooh there could be so many fab possibilities with the scarf ring bag! I can't imagine taking too many outfit photos now and hope it isn't too cold!

  11. I do love that ring bag, nice one Target! The striped top is great too for a different way to wear stripes!

  12. I think its good that you are doing more things for yourself and also getting out there... Go Lydia!

  13. That striped top is so you. I saw I,Tonya last week and I really enjoyed it.

  14. Ahh I love this post idea! So cute!
