Blackout

Why, hello there! Remember me?

It’s been quite a while since we last caught up — 10 days, to be exact — and I’m not gonna lie, the social media blackout was a fantastic change of pace. It was so nice to unplug, unwind and rarely (if at all) check my phone during the day. I got to enjoy a week with my family, read 4 books, soak up some sunshine and recharge. I tried to disconnect from everything work related and give my mind and body a break.

… but now I’m back and best of all, I’m excited to be back.

Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.84

Friday Link LoveWe made it! Hooray for Spring Break!

I might be as excited as my kids at this point. Mama needs a vacation. I also need a tan. Both situations will be resolved in a matter of hours. The last few weeks have been a mad dash towards the vacation finish line and I couldn’t be more relieved that it’s finally here. Sunshine and sand, here I come.

Gingham Dress

I’ll be honest — I never considered gingham 100% my thing.

Too preppy. Too young. Too much.

Then I came across this blown-out, large-scale, gingham dress online — at TJ MAXX of all places! I immediately loved the oversized graphic pattern, the unusual neckline, the drop waist and yes, the monochromatic color way. I figured for under $30 and free shipping, I had nothing to lose.

Ellis Faas

Since launching The Heart’s Delight almost 4 years ago, I’ve tried more beauty and makeup products than I can count. Some of have been good, some have been, well, not so good.

While I’m not a beauty professional by any means, trying out all of these products has forced me to learn some of the ins-and-outs of the beauty world, figure out what actually works and most importantly learn how to use it correctly! Luckily, I’ve met some very bright and talented people along the way who can help me navigate this process.

On My Radar: Everlane

everlane header

These last few weeks I’ve been working with many of my personal styling clients to put together customized Spring/Summer ’17 shopping lists.

(What can I say!? I have a fun job.)

If you’ve ever worked with me, you’ll generally find me recommending a style ratio of: 80% classic staples and 20% seasonal trends. While the trendy, bright spring summer pieces are super fun and can be relatively inexpensive, they’re fleeting and will be in a donation or consignment bag in a season or two. It’s those classic staples that stick around for the long haul.

Heatwave

The instant I saw this top online, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

Originally, I spotted it on Amber of BAREFOOT BLONDE in an INSTAGRAM capture from the beaches of Hawaii. The rich, saturated colors reminded me of a tropical sunset — and who doesn’t like that!? When I discovered that same FREE PEOPLE CANDYLAND SWEATER in my local store, I knew it was meant to be.

The under $60 price tag might have sealed the deal.

Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.83

Friday Link Love
If you’re anywhere near Lake Erie right now — WTF!?

Is this lake-effect weather situation some sort of cruel and unusual punishment? I woke up to gusty (gale-force) winds, freezing temperatures and snow, people. YES, SNOW. On April 7th. Coincidentally, the forecast calls for sunshine and 70 degree weather in less than 48 hours. Um, ok… that’s 100% weird but I’ll go with it.

Spring Break cannot come fast enough. 

Nothing better than a good Friday Link Love distraction to keep yourself in a happy place! Just read on for all of my favorite reads of the week and some good shopping finds, too.

The ONE Critical Shopping Mistake to Avoid

Let me set a scene for you:

A friend calls (who am I kidding — no one calls anyone anymore!) texts you on Thursday morning asking if you want to meet up with the girls for Friday night dinner and drinks. You happily oblige. It’s been ages since you’ve had a girls night out!

Then you panic.

Sh*t! What do I wear?! I Have NOTHING in my closet. I hate my clothes!

Then you proceed directly to the nearest clothing store as soon as you can and begin the mad hunt for the “perfect” going out shirt.

Can you tell where this story is going?

The 4 Looks Every Woman Needs In Her Closet

4 looks every woman needs header

Since founding The Heart’s Delight almost 4 years ago, I’ve been around the closet block.

I’ve seen closets and wardrobes of every size, shape and iteration. I’ve spent hours purging and sorting and styling and shopping. All of this time and effort was not for naught — I’d like to think that my clients have been left with functional, stylish wardrobes they love.

More importantly, all this time in the closet has helped me to figure out a crucial fashion hack to ensure you have a well-rounded wardrobe of essential pieces that can pretty much get you through life — however crazy it may be.

It all comes down to this: 4 looks every woman needs in her closet.

Bows On Toes

It’s only fitting that on #TuesdayShoesday we spend a little time chatting about the “other” love of my life — shoes!

In particular, a shoe with a bit of extra flare. Some sass. Definitely a bunch of personality, too. Kind of like that silly best friend who can crack you up without saying a word. We could all use one of those… and in the case of shoes, perhaps a few!

Just sayin’.
