Let’s talk about wrapping paper. I mean if you think about it, wrapping paper is a product that is manufactured solely to be thrown away. But if that doesn’t stop you from buying it lets talk about how expensive it is. A box of tags […]

I don’t know about the rest of you but I grew up with penny loafers. My mom and aunts all wore them and even my brother wore them when he went to Catholic school. The shoe itself is versatile and wearable for both men and women. As I got older I would see a few of my favorite bloggers rock loafers, even before they came back in style. I always felt like I couldn’t pull them off until recently. I’m trying to adopt a new mentality. “This is simple, this is easy, this is fun.” My mother-in-law showed me this video of a man named, Kerwin Rae (awesome name) talking about how we as people let our brains tell us what to do when it should really be the other way around. This statement and the meaning behind it, are meant for things on a grander scale then my shoe problem. But I’m using it in every aspect of my life. For the full video click the quote above!
So by this mentality I decided I’d try a pair. You don’t know how something will look on you till you actually try. And if it was a total fail I knew I’d have a few friends I could hand them over to. Results? I love them! They are so comfortable and to my surprise go with everything. It’s a fun way to add a little something extra to a look. I feel like loafers are surprisingly a flirty chic meets masculine flare kinda style and it adds something totally new to my wardrobe. Today I paired them with cut off shorts and a chartreuse knit I’ve recently become obsessed with from J.Crew. Below I’ve supplied a few styles to turn your own wardrobe into flirty chic.
Let’s be real, those summer time holidays aren’t as fun with little ones. Of course they have their moments and everything is special because maybe it’s their first Independence Day or they’re big fans of fireworks. But it gets to a point where all you […]
Here we are, beautiful April has arrived. Even though the month is notoriously known for its rainy showers, the cold weather tends to break and we start to see nature rejuvenate itself. This is the time for renewal and change. So while the weather and plants start to transition I thought I’d take a page out of their book and do the same for my own family! For the boys it’s new kicks and sunnies, for Sam and I, well, we are all about the accessories. Spring and summer bring a mixed schedule for us, we go from work to hiking like that and lets not forget everything else in-between! Finding refreshing spring accessories that can still transition from work to play can be hard.
That’s why I was so thrilled when JORD reached out to me about trying one of their wood watches. I mean what better way to commemorate spring then with a strong unique wooden watch. A wooden watch is always a great accent to any outfit, JORD watches are even better. This innovative watch by JORD has a look all its own. The black details mixed with warm accents of the Koa wood on this Dover watch are stunning. That mixed with the natural materials make for an effortlessly stylish look. But what really makes this JORD watch the perfect spring accessory is the exposed mechanics on the face of the time piece. The face of this watch creates a sleek put together look that is perfect for any attire.
My husband has a growing watch collection, so he is no stranger to great time pieces. With that said, I’ve never seen him more impressed with a watch or its packaging then when I presented him with this JORD watch. The Dover is something he can wear for an activity. With spring in full swing I see hiking, camping and farmers market fun in our and this watches future! ? Whether he is heading to a client meeting or taking our boys to the playground on a Sunday, the Dover watch is a truly unique piece. This piece is so cool I even tried it on for myself. Yes I’ve even found a watch or two for myself and with Mother’s Day coming maybe my husband will get the hint! (Hint Hint: The Frankie – Champagne & The Frankie – Smoke)
