I hope that you all had wonderful Memorial Day Weekends!
Here is an outfit for the warmer weather to get you in the mood for the hot months ahead! White jeans are my most prized summer staple, and I love mixing them with unexpected color combinations like navy, turquoise, and coral.
Every item here is less than $60...enjoy!
For this weekend only you can get 20% off any order of $100 or more at one of my favorite online stores: Iomoi!Iomoi rarely offers coupons and whenever they do I try and jump on the offer!This fun and fresh personalized home accessories store is a great place to get monogrammed stationary, bags, or stickers for yourself, or unique hostess gifts for your friends! We got personalized elephant stickers from Iomoi for the gift bags at our wedding and they were beautiful! Here are a few items I am contemplating splurging on...
A beautiful jute tote bag...
A stylish thank you stationary set...
Personalized stationary...this could come home with me today!
Adorable address labels...very similar to the stickers we ordered for our wedding!
And a wide selection of several canvas and lucite trays...
To take advantage of this special offer just use the code: iomoi2011mem
Will you be taking anything home from Iomoi this weekend?
With the first long weekend of the summer season fast approaching, it is that time of year to start making your summer travel plans, and also start thinking about how you will be thanking your generous hosts for the summer!Thanks to my good friend Stephanie, I just became aware of this adorable Wine and Tote Bag Gift Set from St. Francis Vineyards and Vineyard Vines!
For just $45, this gift set includes a delicious bottle of St. Francis Chardonnay, and a beautiful wine tote bag from Vineyard Vines!
For under $50 you get great wine and a re-usable adorable tote...who could ask for more?!
I might just have to order one for myself as a treat to look forward to for after I have our baby girl!
Happy Traveling and Shopping!
For the second year in a row, Trina Turk has paired up with Nordstrom and Clinique to offer a gorgeous makeup bag and gift set valued at $75, for the low price of a $25 minimum purchase of Clinique products!
I am a big fan of Trina Turk's fabric and designs, and in my opinion, this beautiful makeup bag is worth more than $25 just on it's own!
Isn't this such a fun pattern for summer? It would be a great case for sunscreen and other products for the beach, or perfect for all of your toiletries this summer on any weekend getaway!Click here for more details on how to purchase this gift set!Happy Shopping!
For my latest edition of "4 Items Under $50 and 1 Splurge Wish List" I am thrilled to introduce you to Debbie, who is one of my closest friends, and who also happens to be my older sister!
Debbie is such an inspiration to me...she is a working mother of two, an incredible sister, and a loving daughter and wife! I don't know how she does it all and always manages to look so amazing and put together...as I expect my first baby on the way, she has definitely been my go to source on how to be a young chic and savvy mother.
I'm thrilled to have Debbie sharing her top "4 Items Under $50 and 1 Splurge Wish List" with us today. She chose to focus on tote bags because they are so important for the mom on the go! Here is what Debbie chose...
Debbie: Now that I have two kids, I have so much to carry around so having a couple of cute tote bags is critical!
I have found some very cute tote bags for $50 or less....
The first bag is from my good friend’s store in Concord called Hatch. Hatch is a very modern and chic store that carries gifts, household goods, and baby and women’s clothing and accessories. Here is a link that will tell you more about Hatch: http://concord.patch.com/listings/hatch-3
Bag #1: I bought this Ann Judge tote bag at Hatch recently for $50!
Bag #2: The 2nd tote bag that I am featuring is from Ballard Designs. You can get a large tote bag from Ballard Designs for just $25 which includes free monogramming! Bag #3: The 3rd bag that I am featuring is from Lands End Canvas and it is on sale for just $16.99. I like the navy and orange options. You can also get this bag monogrammed for just $5!
Bag #4: For my 4th bag I would like to feature a straw bag which could be used for just about anything including fun trips to the beach. J Crew has a very cute Farmer’s Market Bag which also comes in red and blue stripes...
And if the J.Crew bag seems too expensive Target also has a cute straw bag from the Calypso collection...
Bag #5: I hardly ever splurge on things anymore but when I do I like to see what Nordstrom has to offer. So if I was going to splurge on a tote bag and did not have to worry about the price or sippy cups or bottles spilling in my bag, then I would buy this leather tote bag from Tory Burch. I like the brown bag but it also comes in black and tan for $450!
But my favorite tote bag is not for sale...my daughter gave this tote bag to me for Mother’s Day! I asked her if she made it at school and she said “No Paula (her teacher) made it!”. Oh well it is the thought that counts!
Hope everyone had a great Mothers Day!

I have always been a fan of the wedge heel...it is such an easy and chic way to add height to your look, while also ensuring a little more stability and comfort than your average 3-4 inch heel.
And with Kate Middleton recently sporting these fabulous black wedges before and after her wedding, the wedge has grown even more popular in the past month!
Now I'm not going to lie...if I could have any wedge heel of my choice, it would definitely be this classic and clean wedge from Christian Louboutin! But at $695, unfortunately this beauty is a little out of my budget right now...
But luckily I was able to find this gorgeous black patent wedge from Nine West...and for one day only it has been reduced from $79 to $59 on Piperlime!
This shoe goes with everything and I have already worn it multiple times this spring...I also love the dark cork wedge...it definitely adds an updated look to this spring staple.
Do you have a favorite shoe for spring?
