Have you heard of Poppyclips?  They are the stylish and functional answer to shorten your sleeves, change your hem or just add a pop of color to your outfit.  Two magnets sewn into a strip of fabric and when connected the poppyclip will allow you to alter your clothing without any damage or commitment.

Stacking Rings

My wedding ring and a trinity ring my husband gave me are my every day staples.  I prefer my jewelry to be understated and simple as to not distract from the other two beauties on my fingers.  I have been ogling Fresh Tangerine’s jewelry for years.  Initially drawn to their clean and simple rings, I soon realized that although some of the other pieces were larger and had more details they were still thin and delicate in nature. So imagine how loudly I squealed when Fresh Tangerine offered to send me some dainty pieces to review and share with my readers!

Based in Seattle WA, Fresh Tangerine is the brain child of Kim, the founder, designer and Lady Boss of the shop.  Comprising a small team of five, the ladies design, manage, photograph and market all of their own jewelry.  This small business hand makes all their jewelry to be fun, versatile and delicate in appearance but strong enough to withstand every day wear.

Kindness Necklace

P1330191 P1330171

I ordered myself a special necklace from Shop Compliment recently.  I customized the piece to hold my family’s birthstones.  I’m a fan of shopping local and supporting small businesses.  I’ve had the pleasure of working with Melissa, the Founder and Creative Director of Shop Compliment.  As a former teacher, she knows the importance of empowering others with positivity and support.  By supporting the shop, you also give back to the community. 5% of every sale goes towards the Compliment Scholarship Program.  And possibly the most unique quality of the jewelry is the box it comes in.  Stamped with a compliment to remind you just how beautiful you are.

Red Shoes Style Challenge

I have a weakness for red shoes!  Red is bold and eye-catching and the perfect pop of color for a simple outfit.  They are versatile and easier to incorporate into your outfit than you might think!
I teamed up with two blogger friends to highlight red shoes and how to wear them for date night, casual day running errands and hanging with the kids.  You can check out Julia’s outfit here and Emily’s outfit here. How do you style your red shoes?

Second Chance Friday – Bitten Houndstooth Jacket by SJP

Happy 2015!  It’s been a few months since I’ve posted.  But with a new year comes new goals and great beginnings.  I want to share the first of many (I hope) SECOND CHANCE FRIDAYs.  Every second Friday of the month, I will share an item or two that is new to me and my family.  I’ve had really good luck thrifting at my local Goodwill store.  I don’t want to brag about my abilities but most people are impressed (and sometimes shocked) when I tell them I got it at Goodwill.  Dressing well doesn’t have to break the bank.  So sit back and prepare to be amazed by my treasures!
Have you heard of Sarah Jessica Parker?  How about Sex and the City?  HBO?  If you answered yes to one or more of those then you probably know what a style icon SJP is both fictionally and in real life.  So imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon a jacket by her label, Bitten!  What’s even more exciting was the price – it was only $11.99!  Add the classic houndstooth pattern and the very good condition of the jacket and I didn’t hesitate to swoop it up.
