I’m a huge fan of needlepoint. Seriously. I wish I were artsy enough to do it, but no such luck. Thankfully, there’s York Design Company. Their adorable cuffs are to die for. They have everything from monograms to Yorkies (I imagine this is Atticus and his girlfriend; totally normal) to anchors. (Hint: you can buy one for any girl on your list!)
The delightful ladies over there sent me the Quatrefoil Single Letter Monogram Cuff to try out, and I love it. The quality of the needlepoint work is excellent, and I love the leather liner inside. It can fit on most wrists, and it’s super comfortable. I’m taking mine on my trip and rocking it with all my summer clothes, but, depending on the pattern you pick, you can absolutely wear these with a great blazer and riding boots!
When it comes to packing, I have a bad habit of packing waaaay too much stuff. What can I say? I like options. The Boy and I are headed to Riviera Maya soon, and I’m trying super hard to limit my suitcase to the essentials: bikinis, flip flops, sneakers (for zip lining – not working out!), dresses, a tote bag, and a few good books. What are your vacation must-haves?
One of the best parts of holidays is getting to dress up. I mean, spending time with family, of course. The Boy and I will actually be on vacation over Thanksgiving, but, before we made those plans, I already had an outfit picked out. I ordered these pumps last year after my trip to Europe thinking I would totally have places to wear them, but Pennsylvania’s dressy scene is a bit limited. So limited that I’ve worn them once in a year. Anyway, I’d make an outfit around them this year and include a pair of skinny khakis, a cute button down, and a sweater on top. I’d finish it with pearls and a watch for that traditional look, and gobble up! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Today’s Delight of the Day was seriously the obsession of my weekend. The lovely ladies over at The Pink Giraffe Boutique graciously sent me one of their Monogrammed Phone Covers, and it’s my favorite case by far! When I had an iPhone 4S, I had a LifeProof case, but it was just too bulky.
When I got the 5S, I bought a few cute ones from here and there, but, honestly, they were really flimsy. The “Tough” case is the perfect combination of both. It has two layers of protection for your phone, but, as you can tell from all the pictures, it’s beyond adorable and not at all bulky.
Not a huge Turkish tile fan? No worries – there are tons of designs to choose from, and you can totally customize the colors. I really love the stripes, crab, and polka dots cases. Best part? They’re on sale right now, making now the perfect time to buy one for yourself and one as a gift!
It’s that time of year again – the time when we all start panicking about what to get our loved ones. Struggling as to what to get for your sister/little/girlfriend/cousin? I’ve got you covered. From cuffs to phone covers to monogrammed sunglasses to watches, you’re bound to find something for every gal on your list – and within your budget!
Today’s Delight of the Day is one of the best steals I’ve seen on Nordstrom lately (and there have been some good ones). This Burberry leather strap watch was originally $495 but is now down to $296.98! In the picture below, I have the watch directly to the right of this one, which I love very much, but you can’t exactly where it with everything. This simple leather watch is perfect for everyday looks. J, if you’re reading this, it’s the perfect Christmas gift!
Today’s Delight of the Day is the Metallic Jacquard Stripe Skirt from Vineyard Vines, $158. This reminds me a ton of the Sail to Sable dress that was super popular last fall/winter (remind me to get that tailored ASAP), but it’s in skirt form. It’s perfect for work, date nights, cocktail parties – you name it. I’m loving it paired with some of the items pictured below from J.Crew, Old Navy, and Tory Burch in red, deep navy, and white.
