A Few of My Favorite Things: February 2019

Does February feel like it’s flying for anyone else? I can’t believe it’s already February 18. Spring football begins in exactly two weeks for Nebraska and I’m already excited for the work to be done with Hail Varsity with that. In the meantime, I realized it’s been about a week and a half since I last blogged so I thought I’d stop by and share a few of my favorite things right now.
I tried once to do a weekly favorite things on Friday (because “Friday Faves” seemed like a solid name for it) but I couldn’t stay consistent with it. I then tried to switch it to Wednesday, and shocking – Changing the day didn’t immediately help. Ha! So, maybe I’ll do once a month? Bi-monthly? Who knows! THERE ARE NO RULES.
Anyway, let’s get to a few of the things I’m loving right now. (Also for full disclosure, there are affiliate links throughout. Just an FYI.)
Ray-Ban Aviator Flash Lenses (In Gold Green Flash)
I’ve gotten a lot of questions and comments recently about the Ray-Bans that I wear (they appear in a lot of my Instagram photos, TBH), and I thought I’d share some details (plus a few dupes) on them. I’ve had the Aviator Flash Lenses (in gold green flash) for almost six years now. They’re super durable (I’ve dropped them plenty of times and they’ve survived with no scratches) and easy to wear with just about everything.
Here are a couple of options if you want the exact pair (various colors):
- $89.99-$99.99 (depending on color) from JOMASHOP – My color is sold out.
- $178 (with free shipping) from Amazon – My color is in stock, but currently not on sale.
Knowing how long I’ve had mine, my Ray-Bans were definitely a good investment for me. But they’re still an investment, so if you’re looking for something similar but at a lower price point, here are a few options I found:
- $15 from Wild Fable (Target) – Saw these in person and they’re really awesome.
- $7.99 Full Tilt from Tilly’s – Love the rainbow look, similar to Target’s.
- $9.88 from Loft – The pink would be great for spring.
- $11.16 from Aerie – Two colors, but I personally love the blue.
My absolute favorite leggings from Zella are currently 40% off from Nordstrom. I cannot stress how much I love these leggings. I’ve worked out in them, I’ve worn them to sleep in, I’ve worn them to run errands in, you name it. They’re comfortable, but provide really good coverage. Out of all the leggings I own, I reach for these the most.
Currently Listening To
Because I figured someone might like something I’m listening to, so I put together a currently listening to playlist (mostly to get through the rest of winter!).
You can check it out below, or click here. Whatever works, especially if the embedded playlist doesn’t decide to work.
Well, my friends, I hope you have a great week. We’re in for another 85 inches of snow in Nebraska, so I can’t wait.
Spring football is TWO WEEKS AWAY. That’s all I keep telling myself.
