Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts

Not that any of us are last minute gift buyers (eh hem), but I thought that I would throw together a list of suggestions for last minute Father’s Day gifts (it’s this Sunday – hint, hint).

Around here I completely sucked with an anniversary gift this year (like I skipped it, which is unheard of for me… stress much?), so I have much to make up for it on Father’s Day. I had a long list of ideas, but I settled on something else, so this list won’t give J’s gift away just yet…  Hook, Thread & Tinker | Father's Day Gift Ideas Read More

The Perfect Maxi Dress for Any Budget

I am always on the hunt for a perfect maxi dress. I live in them all summer – the ease of being able to wear them with flip flops to run errands and then pair them with a dressier sandal and jewelry for date night is awesome. I didn’t wear them much last summer because I had just had Simon and it was hard to find a maxi dress that I could nurse in without taking the whole thing off. Not to mention that my idea of dressing up included replacing one pair of yoga pants with a less ratty pair of yoga pants (and adding earrings) :). Read More

New Kendra Scott Collection: Via Maya (GIVEAWAY!)

Today Kendra Scott released their newest collection: Via Maya. It is absolutely gorgeous!! I didn’t know about Kendra Scott until a few months ago, but I am so glad that I was introduced to her jewelry because it is beautiful. I love the bright colors and classic, yet fashionable collections.

Her jewelry is available online and in stores around the country!


The Via Maya collection has some wonderful pieces – I especially love the big necklaces! I had a ton of fun trying on clothes to go with the jewelry. I appreciate that I can dress them down with a casual top and dress them up with a dress or blouse. Read More

Let Your Toes Out!

It has been so cold in Chicago lately and I am THRILLED that the temperature will be in the 50’s all week. I LOVE not wearing socks… a fresh pedicure, no socks, toes feeling free… I’m dreaming of summer and flip flops. I’m putting the snow boots away this weekend and I don’t intend to bring them out again until December! Don’t disappoint me Mother Nature :).

I’m in a shopping mood, so I pulled together a few great warm weather shoe options from the Amazon 20% off Spring shoes sale (code NEW4SPRING). There were a LOT of shoes to fall in love with – everything from heels to flip flops. Read More

Target Style

I’ve been following Target Style for a few months on Instagram and the other day they highlighted a pair of Sam & Libby shoes that I thought were adorable. Then on Glitter Guide I saw this “25 Pieces That Look More Expensive Than They Are” post and I knew that I had to make a trip to Target. Twist my arm.

Before I went I looked online to see if they were selling the things that I was interested in locally. It turns out that they were, so instead of ordering online, I decided to make the trip to scope the goods out in person. My main purpose was to get a couple of new sports bras because the Champion sports bras are my absolute fave, but I definitely wanted to check out the shoes too. Read More
