Gift Guide: Father’s Day

Click to Shop!

Father’s Day is June 21st, so I thought I’d round up some gift ideas. Dads (actually just men in general) can be so hard to shop for. They already have everything, or you gifted it to them last year. Golf balls, ties, or in my dad’s case, socks. Extravagant, right? They’ve seen it all before, and will be just as happy to receive it again this year, but why not spice it up a bit?!

Happy Monday! Right now, the main thing I want (need!) is a pair of jean shorts. I don’t know if any of y’all have had a similar quest for an acceptable pair of jorts, but it’s near impossible! They’re either Bermudas fit for church camp, or like seriously trailer-park-short. Part of the problem is that I have this idyllic picture of the perfect shorts in my head, and I’m beginning to think they just don’t exist. Several other bloggers have recommended One Teaspoon for denim cut-offs and I think I’m going to give the above pair a spin! If any of y’all have suggestions on the subject, let me know! Be sure to check out all the other goodies on this little list, because several things are on sale. As you can tell, I’m trying to amp up my summer wardrobe, and everything here would be right at home. Plus, the camera is for documenting it all. I hope your Monday is going well so far, and if not, even more reason to shop.

Hi! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent mine in Chicago, and I’ll be recapping that in tomorrow’s post. For now, unwind before bed with some retail therapy. Several of these things were inspired by what I couldn’t afford to buy while shopping around the past few days. Life is expensive y’all, and so is Italian leather. I’m wrapping up my evening with some tea, as it takes some time to recover from such a great weekend, so I’ll meet y’all back here tomorrow!

My New Fave Animal Print

Click to Shop!

Hi y’all, happy Friday! I’m headed to Chicago later this afternoon to see my best friend from college and spend the weekend sketching around the Windy City! If y’all have any suggestions on places to eat/drink/shop let me know! For now, I’ll leave you with this little trend I’ve been into lately. I love most animal prints (except zebra, say no to zebra), but especially this speckled dalmatian/cheetah print. I’ve not been sure of what to call it, as it’s more abstract than straight-up cheetah, but not quite reminiscent of 101 Dalmatians either. Regardless, being a natural design, it’ll fit in with almost any look, plus, it’s a fun way to add some interest and texture to an outfit. What patterns and prints do you gravitate toward? I hope everyone has a great weekend, I’ll meet you back here on Monday! Until then, follow along on Instagram!

Sterling Silver

SandlesSplendid, $78 (Find them in the widget below to shop!)

Hi y’all! If you follow me on Instagram (which you should do here), you saw that I picked up these little beauties last week! I really stepped on of my comfort zone with these, as I’ve said before I’m more of a golden girl, but these sandals were an impulse buy I don’t regret! Silver goes with just as much as gold, and adds a modern appeal to your look. SIDENOTE: you can wear gold and silver together y’all. Life is just too short. Anyway, I rounded up some other silver sandals I’ve been eyeing, check them out (and these pictured) in the neat lil widget below!

Pastel Picks

I know pastels (like florals!) for spring aren’t exactly groundbreaking, but I’m really excited about them this go round. With all the neutral, blushy tones that are everywhere this season, pastels are just part of the natural progression. I like the ethereal, easy look that only the lightest tints of colors can bring. This is also true when it comes to cosmetics, so if you’re not quite ready to commit to a pastel wardrobe the Queen Mother (rest her soul) would approve of, try a new, pink-er blush or this lilac nail polish. This color trend is a great fit for everyone, as pastels compliment both dark and fair skin tones. Now we can all run around channeling Easter eggs all season long. I can’t wait to layer the sweater from yesterday’s post over this shirtdress with pale pink flats!

Weekly Wishlist: Leafy Greens

Click to Shop!

Hello lovers, welcome back. I hope everyone had a great weekend. On Sunday morning I casually ventured to Target, in hopes of checking out the Lilly…but there was nothing let to check out! I knew this would be a successful capsule collection but was not anticipating bare shelves by 9am. The clothes didn’t have me very excited, but the home goods looked so cute in the lookbook.  My mom and I scrounged up some nail files and hair ties, but everything else was hoarded away by eBay entrepreneurs, it seems. So, in honor of Lilly, some tropical vibes are happening on the Weekly Wishlist!
