I hope you'll excuse me as I take the day off to celebrate!

Bon Voyage

We're leaving for Louisville, Kentucky bright and early tomorrow morning! It's an 8 1/2 hour drive from Madison and with our penchant for roadside attractions, it could be much longer!

We'll visit Churchill Downs, go on the Urban Bourbon Trail, explore Mammoth Cave, tour a bourbon distillery, learn how to make baseball bats at the Louisville Slugger factory, and drink mint juleps (the only way I like bourbon).

I'll be back on Wednesday - which is my birthday!

The Long and Short of It

As much as I love skirts, they're sometimes impractical in the summer. (Have you ever tried going on carnival rides in a skirt? It's not exactly ladylike.) Printed shorts are your best bet to stay covered and stylish. Here are four of my favorites:
  1. Sunflower-Print Shorts, Alice + Olivia, $200
  2. Printed Cotton-Twill Shorts, J.Crew, $60
  3. Beaded Dip-Dye Shorts, Topshop, $120
  4. Bianca Shorts, Kendall K., $42 with code "baubles" (originally $82)*
*Kendall K. has offered $40 off her spring collection with code "baubles." Code expires on Friday. More information is here.

Happy Monday!

It's hard to get back in the swing of things after a fun weekend. We went to the Farmers' Market, enjoyed craft cocktails, spent an evening grilling with friends, went to the carnival and purchased cotton candy. See more snapshots at Bedknobs & Baubles.

Happy Monday!

I spent the weekend in Milwaukee celebrating the marriage of one of Dave's friends. I'm still exhausted from too much dancing and too many drinks! At least my feet are taking it easy in a pair of Ann Taylor neon-capped flats that I picked up for only $35.

Exclusive Discount: Kendall K.

I have something way more exciting than a round up of "Friday Finds" for you today: an exclusive discount on one of my favorite labels. 

Kendall K. is offering $40 off any item from the spring 2012 collection (view it here).

I met Kendall a few years ago through her blog. At the time, she was working on her very first collection. (I remember how excited she was when she had her hang tag designed!) This is now her third collection and it keeps getting better and better.

My favorites from the spring 2012 collection are the Lola wrap dress and the Pura embroidered top.

Discount Details: $40 off an item from the spring 2012 collection
Code: baubles
Expires: May 25

Tuesday Treat Under $25

I'm giving into the neon trend just a little bit. This set of metal bangle bracelets ($10.90) is a fun way to add a dose of day-glo in a pretty subtle way.

Giveaway Reminder

I'm sorry about the unexpected absence this week. I came down with the flu and couldn't concentrate on anything more than DayQuil and cuddling with the cat (which was unsuccessful - he'd much rather play).

That aside, I want to remind you to enter to win one of five pairs of sunglasses from Fantas-Eyes over at Bedknobs & Baubles. It's the last day to enter!

Tuesday Treat Under $25

Mixing chunky gold chains with friendship bracelets shouldn't work, but these baubles from Alexandra Jade are all kinds of fantastic - and only $25 each. Add one to your stack of bracelets and reminisce about summers at camp (if only it had been this chic).

Reminder! Enter to win a new pair of sunglasses from Fantas-Eyes!
