Hey friend! I hope you're having a wonderful week! I am in Michigan visiting my family and celebrating my baby shower this weekend (so excited!!). Fall in Michigan is so beautiful and my favorite time to visit! I picked up this hat for my trip at Target this week and love the gold detail! Target has some awesome hats right now and at such great price points! I linked some favorites below! 

Hats I am loving right now! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am always on the hunt for dainty accessories that can be worn with everyday outfits. Don't get me wrong, I love a good statement necklace but there is something to be said for a piece of jewelry that you can style with anything you throw on and can layer to switch it up! I was super excited when CY Designs reached out to me to work together and after browsing their website I knew that I had found a new favorite place to shop for affordable, high quality jewelry! CY Designs is a smaller business and put the extra touches into their packaging and designs that only a small business could do. Every piece is handmade and high quality and each purchase comes gift wrapped and with a jewelry cleaning cloth (bonus!). I picked out two gold necklaces that are so pretty and that I love wearing together. This moon crescent necklace is so cute and unique and this initial necklace is 14k gold and so reasonably priced. I think the initial necklace would make for such a cute gift for a bridesmaid gift or for a new mom or anyone on your holiday list.

What are your favorite pieces from CY Designs? I'd love to know!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy friday friend! What do you have planned this weekend? Jon and I have traveled the last two weekends and decided to stay home and take it easy this weekend and I am so excited! We are going to start getting stuff ready for the baby, pick out paint colors for our house, and go see a movie (my version of relaxing lol). I have such a hard time taking it easy and relaxing. I am a busy body and thrive off of going a million miles a minute. The downside of that being that I always go too hard, try to do too many things and then end up crashing and being exhausted. I have definitely slowed down since becoming pregnant and have been learning to listen to my body and rest when I am tired and not push myself too hard. It is a challenge for me but super important because it's not just about me anymore and that has been such a blessing!  What do you do to relax and recharge? I'd love to know! Ok, enough updates here are my Friday 5 for this week! If you're new to the The Bargain Belle the Friday 5 is a series I do weekly. I share 5 things from the week that I enjoy.

Outfit: top  ||  leggings (maternity), similar (not maternity)  ||  bag (old) similar, similar  ||  hat (under $10)  ||  shoes

I have been loving all of the fall trends this season! The bell sleeves, flutter sleeves and lace up sweaters have been a few of my favorite. I love to get a few new tops in the fall to update my wardrobe but don't want to spend a bunch of money. The top I am wearing above is only $16! I love the color, the sleeve detail and how it is longer in the back. It's super comfy and affordable. I found a few tops below that are $30 and under and perfect for this fall and winter. I linked some maternity options as well. I also shared some awesome sales that are happening right now if you're in the shopping mood today.
