My fave travel packing list essentials include everything from packing cubes & spill-proof bottles, to comfy sandals I never leave home without. Watch me dive into my 14 spring break must-haves in our latest Amazon live video.
We’ve got spring break travel on our minds over here, and we’ve found Amazon to be a pretty perfect one-stop-shop for a ton of travel things (the necessary and the unnecessary-but-really-cute). I’m heading out on a couple of long-weekend trips in the next few months, and Amazon has pretty much everything I need to complete my packing lists (as well...
Looking for summer sun hats that are truly chic? Got 'em. (Think: fedoras, floppy hats) These straw hats are packable + they stay put, are UPF 50 & look seriously cool.
Gwen and I were having lunch with the Shop Social Threads founders, Sara and Maureen, when Sara casually brought up summer hats. "I don't know if your readers would be interested, but we found the absolute best summer hat," she said. Now, I don't know if you guys realize how seriously East Coasters take their beach-going, but this...
We're longtime fans of Clare V. at TME, so I def had my doubts about the Quince bag. I love the fun colorways offered in the Clare V. Gigi & the pretty Stone color, larger style + price point of the Quince Italian Leather Crossbody.
Last month a reader asked if I could compare the Clare V. Gigi (a team favorite) to Quince's Italian Leather crossbody bag, which seems like a similar size and style. My curiosity got the best of me regarding the Quince $89 price tag, so I hopped on over to Quince's site to see it for myself. Which Leather Crossbody Bag...
Let's dig into these 5 fun fashion finds that'll see me through this pregnancy & into spring + summer, b/c they're all right up my timeless, no-regrets, alley. Affordable, too.
Sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle Collective I'm not one of those people who just adores being pregnant. I appreciate it, sure. It certainly is novel, and I celebrate all that it represents. And both times I've felt extremely grateful to be in a position to carry a kiddo with my very own body. (This second time, especially, since I wasn't...
We're a fairly practical bunch around here and we focus a lot on go-to basics, jeans, the best boots, well-made coats...and that is all super helpful I hope, but (and this is me telling myself mostly) we mustn't forget the accessories! A basic outfit that is comfy and fits great is wonderful, but, especially this time of year, accessories...
There are 8 handbag designers (including Clare V) that are worth the splurge. I'm not talking FANCY designer bags like cult-fave YSL or gorg Bottega Veneta. The bags I speak of are well-made & aptly described as "everyday designer."
I have a confession to make. Last December, I ordered this gorgeous Clare V. (very gently used) from eBay, wrapped it up in a pretty gift box, and addressed the card to myself from my husband. He said it was the best gift HE could have received: not having to lift a finger and gifting me exactly what I wanted....
When it comes to dressing up, there's nothing I rely on more than a cute little evening bag. I actually think of them as jewelry, and, since there are soooo many fun little options, they're an easy way to express personal style. My evening bag tastes run a little frivolous and quirky, rather than understated or luxurious. The...
Adding a pair of classic aviators to jeans + a t-shirt equals instant cool...tortoise shell frames elevate any work outfit...and when I'm tired, I feel more confident after throwing on a pair of deliciously oversized sunglasses before I head out the door.
This post is sponsored by Tory Burch and ShopStyle Nothing finishes an outfit like an awesome pair of sunglasses. I never feel fully ready until I have that final piece to pull everything together. Like the perfect shade of lipstick, the right pair of sunglasses can totally make an entire look. Adding a pair of classic aviators to jeans...
I discovered last year that -- despite the children that seem to keep appearing in my household -- I actually don't need a bag that holds two weeks of supplies, like I'm preparing for a natural disaster and not a trip to Target. I can get away with a smaller, crossbody bag. I can give my shoulders a break. Despite...
