Given that I’m a “few” years past my lunch box era, I thought it was interesting that a this new bag style unexpectedly caught my eye.
It’s small, it’s sharp, and of course, it’s boxy. Sounds a whole lot like that lunch box I used to tote around back in the day. (Mine was “Strawberry Shortcake” — you know, in case you were curious!) However, this new box bag is perhaps the chicest little accessory I’ve seen in a while.
As with everything else on this planet, fashion evolves.
Trends build over time and spill over into the next biggest, brightest thing in the retail world.
How’d you guys feel about the lace-up trend??
For quite a few seasons, that criss-crossed detail covered everything from top to bottom giving even the simplest of pieces a serious dose of wearable style. Well, prepare yourselves because the lace-up has now evolved into… the ruche!
Good morning, on this grey and chilly last Friday of October!
It finally feels like Fall in Cleveland which left me scrambling to find all of our cold weather accessories (hat, scarves, gloves, etc.) that were packed away in the moving frenzy. I had brief flashbacks of temporarily losing my FAVORITE HAT last year and the sadness involved. Good news: the gear has been located! Apparently, I’m a little more organized than I thought.
Clearly, I am suffering from a a major case of First World problems and have much to be grateful for — starting with the fact that the weekend is here! On that note, sit back, relax, and have yourself a little dose of Friday Link Love. Continue Reading
Apparently, this Fall 2017 is all about texture. First, we headed in the direction of soft and cuddly — remember yesterday’s TEDDY BEAR COAT. Now, we make a full 180 and go sleek and shiny. Folks, prepare yourself for the return of patent leather.
As you’re reading this, I’m likely flying high in the sky on my way to NYC for the weekend!
I rarely get to spend mother-daughter time with my mom without my husband or children in tow, so I’m using this wedding-related weekend getaway (we’re celebrating my future sister-in-law at her bridal shower!) to unwind with my mama. I booked us a hotel suite and we have no other plans aside from shopping, eating, drinking and enjoying each other’s company. I have a mile long list of projects and to-dos waiting for me back home — the moving truck comes on Friday! — but I’m looking forward to tuning out the noise and stress, at least temporarily. Sort of like a real-life “time-out”… but for grown-ups and with booze.
Get your own weekend groove on with this week’s assortment of Friday Link Love articles, recipes and shopping finds!
There is always a time and place for sweatpants/yoga pants.
Joggers (THESEare my absolute favorite!) have elevated the comfy staple to new levels and now, with the right styling you can wear those bad boys most anywhere (office or workplace, aside). Now, what if I told you there was an equally comfortable article of clothing that was just as soft, just as easy, but would bring your casual style to a whole new level of chic!?
Our Indian Summer has called it quits and this Friday, it certainly feels like Fall.
Trees are starting the change colors, the sky is grey and cool rain is in the forecast. I. LOVE. IT. Our new home is surrounded by mature trees and I’m excited to see all of the colorful changes as the days go on. Now, cleaning up all those leaves… eh, not so much.
This weekend, I’ll be up to more of the same: packing, purging + organizing. Not the most exciting of weekend activities, but it’s nice to see an end in sight. I also foresee some fall-inspired cocktails in my future (keep reading for one of my favorites!). Hey, if I’m gonna be home packing, might as well make it fun!
Here are a few of my favorite internet reads, recipes and sales (a.k.a. Friday Link Love!) to inject a bit more fun into YOUR weekend!
