We’ve Got A Crush

For no other reason than like Jennifer Paige sang, “it’s just a little crush”, we had to share the inspiration that has been making our hearts skip a beat this month. It’s not like we faint every time we touch, but it’s kind of like that!

We’ve got a crush on walls overtaken by blooms…

And we’ve got a crush on different mirrors, lots and lots of different mirrors.

Ok, dish. Who or what are you crushing on lately?? And in case you have the sudden urge to geek out a bit in your office and listen to Paige’s #1 90’s tune, here ya go.

Fresh Denim Trend to Try

Have you heard the news? Bell bottoms are baaaack! That’s right, this season the hippie-loving denim trend is back in all of its bell-shaped glory. A bit slimmer through the knees than your standard trouser jean and all that statement-making width at the bottom, the reintroduction of the flare has us predicting this summer is going to be full of fun, care-free fashion moments. The key to pulling it off? Not taking the trend to a full-on 70’s psychedelic level. We’ve rounded up the most seriously chic fashionistas to help lead the way!

Dragging on the floor {very important detail – these babies have gotta be long long long}, from light wash to black, your flares won’t need much more to pack a fashion punch. Think equally pumped up silhouettes like balloon tops, tunics and shirt dresses paired with the highest pumps you can find and you are in business! The only question left is: do you dare to flare?

8 Unique Mother’s Day Gifts for under $100

Did you remember that one of the most important holidays of the year is just a week and a half away? Yep, Mother’s Day is fast approaching, but don’t worry if you hadn’t realized its importance either. Every year I’ve also done the last minute scramble to find a card. But now that it’ll be my first Mother’s Day as a mom {so weird!} and with my own mother at the loft lending a helping hand with laundry and diapers and everything else, appreciation for this holiday has skyrocketed. Everyone says you don’t truly understand motherhood until you experience it and it is too true. I’m now getting a minute by minute reminder of just how special moms really are. Just the fact that they gave birth to you, let alone raise you, deserves daily gratitude, if you ask me! And while flowers and chocolates do the trick in showing mama some sugah, we guarantee your mom will feel the extra love she deserves with these gorgeous and unique gifts all under $100!
