Favorite Things, Things I Love

Current Crushes

Summer is FINALLY here and I am LOVING all things with LOTS of color! Below are my current crushes for my SEVEN must have items for the summer! Hope you enjoy!

Bathing Suit

Love this bold patten and cold shoulder top.  This would seriously even look cute with cut off jeans.

Dress

The Texas summers get SO HOT! This is a perfect dress to keep me cool.

Shorts

Scalloped details and the colors just make my heart happy.

Espadrilles

Love the neutral with all the color details.  I feel like these would pair well with so many outfits!~

Sandals

Yet again another pop of color that would go well with items already in your closet.  These look so comfy too!

Clutch

TASSELS AND POMPOMS?! SOLD!

Sunnies

Love the cat eyes on these with the colored lens, brings a little sass to a classic look!

Valentine’s Day Purchase List

Well, well, well, January came and went faster than ever! I can’t believe it is almost Valentine’s Day!  I don’t know about you but I am not a fan of [or good at] being overly romanic.  Valentine’s day always seems extra hard to me because Christmas and my husbands birthday happen 9 days apart and I feel like that I never think to save a gift for Valentines so then I am left to scramble!  So here goes a “Top 5” list.  Most of these are classic items that you can “put in your back pocket” for any event that may arise.

Also, while I am at it… I figure I’ll make a top ten classic “For Her” list!  I tried to do a range of prices so there is something most everyone can afford! If all else fails a home cooked meal date and a red box movie is a WONDERFUL go to Valentine’s Day idea!

For Him:

Nordstrom: The North Face ‘eTip’ Gloves” ON SALE $30.15
**Great for the tech lover! These ACTUALLY work!  Don’t go cheap on these kind of gloves because they don’t work well #ilearnedmyfrugallesson!

These are a fun spin on the cufflink! They have animals and other “random” things too!
