What it is: Side Panel Ponte Legging How much: $79.00 (I bought them online on a day sale, getting them for $39.50) Why I bought them: When I go shopping for myself, I gravitate towards dresses and skirts. But, it's my casual wear that is looking a bit tired. So, I've been keeping my eyes open for casual wear that is comfy and has personality. Everybody needs a good pair of leggings but, it seems to me, leggings are pretty boring. So, when I saw these, I wanted to give
Happy Saturday, Everyone! I have to be honest, lately I've been feeling quite bored with my personal wardrobe. I promised myself that post-Christmas, once I purged other "unwanted" items from my closet, I would bring in some fun additions. Last year my New Year's Resolution to only buy and keep garments that I love. If that means spending more on quality, then I buy fewer so that they last longer and wear more often. A sale is only a bonus factor. I've learned we cannot
What it is : Aber Diaper Bag Backpack How much?
$34.69 Why I bought :
I had been rocking the Haptim diaper bag backpack for the past year. It served me well and we traveled a ton with it, but at the beginning of the year one of the straps finally let out on me. While I did love it, I also didn't think I needed quite as big of a bag this go round, so I did another deep dive into amazon bags. I LOVE leather bags and know everyone and their mother (pun intended) is obsessed
This freezing cold weather inspired me to share my favorite winter jacket. The parka... and it has changed! This warm staple has become so much fun and fashionable. The colors are endless and so are the prices! Ranging from $55.00 to several hundred dollars, depending if the parka is faux fur, or real fur. I bought the pink fur one for my daughter, and the white for me. I’ve been wearing it everyday in this cold weather and have loved it!
What it is : Gap High-Rise Slim Straight Jean How much?
$63.00 Why I bought :
No matter how many pairs of jeans I own, I still can't resist another one when I spot a "need those now" kind of pair! I recently saw these gap high rise distressed jeans on sale and had to buy them. They're not a skinny fit or a relaxed fit; they are somewhere in the middle, which is exactly what I've been looking for.
How to wear :
They look super cute with boots, sneakers or slides and they a
Featured Boutique: Poppy There's a new-ish store at the Mall of America; it's called RAAS (Retail As A Service) Local Market. If you look it up on the MOA store directory, nineteen vendor options will come up under this name. That's because it hosts nineteen different local store brands in that location. You can find honey products, leather goods, candy, art, wood products and more, there. Sydnie and I stopped in last week and looked around. I was drawn to the "Poppy"
I purchased a scarf at Ann Taylor last week. It was a steal! It was on clearance with 60% off the sale price, bringing it to a whopping $12! The colors and pattern caught my eye and I knew it was something I would incorporate into my wardrobe. I am not one to wear scarves often but, I've been wearing this one all week. Clients often ask me how they should wear their scarves. Many women have a dresser drawer dedicated to scarves that they rarely wear. They may have been
What it is : Ribbed Hi-Lo Turtleneck How much?
$24.88 (I paid $32.00, but they are running a clearance for all of their sweaters, putting them all under $25.00)
Why I bought :
I'm a total sucker for over-sized cozy sweaters. After a recent purge of the closet, some of my favorite snuggle pieces needed to be retired. I try to purchase garments at the end of the season to save a bit. If your specific sizes are left, it works great, but it can be a gamble.
How to wear :
Recently, my family and I marked two important milestones: John turning 3 and Anna turning 1. My babies are getting so big (and cute, ha)! We have been doing pictures periodically with different photographers up until this point, but lucky for me with my kiddos having close birthdays we will just do them yearly on their birthdays from here on out. We help a lot of families with outfits for family pictures (we would love to help you too!), but I thought I would but together a
What it is : Magnet Eyelashes
Why I bought :
I like a full glam eyelash when going out and I do not like using glue strip lashes
How to wear :
First apply mascara, than put on top lash ( using a tweezers) and then the matching bottom lash...the tiny magnets adhere quickly and easy!
Final Rating: 4 stars
You need slightly full lashes to begin with since they are only 1/2 the width of your eye and are to be placed only at the end of your eyes.
