Friday Ferial Faves // List 012
Welcome to Ferial’s Favorites on Fridays! A little corner of the inter-webs for me to spotlight a few things that I’m loving. I’ve always enjoyed recommending products, podcasts, music, tools, and tips, so here’s a place for me to do it regularly. ☺️
Today’s list of favorites includes: Instagram Stories, Betabrand’s Navy Morning-Mess Jacket, a Madewell zip pouch clutch, and NBC’s This Is Us!
- Instagram Stories: I thought that I loved Instagram. And, if you’re a social media hater or non-user, this fave will not appeal to you, and you may feel waves of judgment emanating from you to me. That’s alright, my love for Instagram is stronger than your judgment and it will survive. And, after Instagram came out with Stories, my love quadrupled. There’s something so fun about Instagram Stories, little moments and pictures from throughout the day--not as edited or curated. Say what you will about fake realities and social media detriments, I can't stop, won't stop.
- Betabrand’s Navy Morning-Mess Jacket: I bought this jacket back in the late autumn of last year and I have not stopped wearing it since. Things don’t get super cold around NorCal in the winter, so this jacket is perfect for Bay Area fall + winter. The navy color fits my capsule wardrobe perfectly and it has all the right pockets. I also love that it has a zipper and outer buttons. And there’s an internal drawstring to cinch the waist a bit and give it a ladylike silhouette. A perfect 10 when it comes to jackets, in my book!
- Madewell’s Leather Pouch Clutch: Soft leather, gold hardware, credit card slots, a coin pouch, and plenty of room for my phone, keys, and some small essentials like lip balm and a Tide pen (anyone else spill all over themselves everyday?). I love keeping this clutch in bigger bags while still having the option to throw my phone and keys inside it and still have everything I need. It’s perf.
- NBC’s This Is Us: This show. Seriously. Are you watching it? If you’re not, you should be. If you loved Parenthood, you need to be watching This Is Us. Incredible storytelling, wonderful actors and characters, and ALL THE FEELS. If you can feel an emotion, this show will make you feel it.
That’s it for this week’s favorites! Stay tuned for more of Ferial’s faves in the future. 😆
