Memorial Day Finds Under $60


Happy Monday! Who else is already looking forward to the holiday weekend? I'm ready to give this work week my all, but cannot help but get excited about Memorial Day weekend! 

Much like the 4th of July, I tend to think of this holiday as a weekend that's best spent by the water whether it's a pool or the lake. To make the weekend even more fun, I typically dress the part by wearing red, white, or blue. It's a good excuse to be patriotic! 

So today I've rounded up some of my favorite patriotic pieces for any occasion. Whether you're laying by the pool, sneaking away for the weekend, or just laying low, there's something for you! Most items are under $25, too! Happy shopping and be sure to let us know what you get!

Spring House Update - Simply & Cost Effective!



What is it about a change in weather that makes you want to completely redecorate your home? It seems like every time the weather gets warm i want to change out my lamps, get a new rug, etc., and then the same thing happens again when it starts to get cold in the Fall.

Over the past couple of years I've learned that instead of squelching this desire altogether or spending tons of money redoing a room, there can some middle ground. Updating your smaller home decor, those little accents in each room is an easy and cost effective way to help your rooms and your home transition with the seasons.

Some of the easiest things to change out happen to be some of the cheapest - things like your trinket trays or lamp shades. For example, replacing your trinket tray with this yellow one from Draper James would not only serve a practical purpose, but it would brighten your room. Another easy option would be to swap out your darker colored vases for a brighter, lighter colored one like this geo ceramic vase.


Best Home Decor to Swap Out on a Dime:


  • throw pillows
  • vases
  • trinket trays
  • succulents
  • picture frames
  • candles
  • throw blankets

Summer's Best Travel Accessories


Happy Tuesday!! Lately it feels like all I can think about is summer vacation. I love traveling in the summer because it lends itself to so many different types of excursions - beach trips, hiking in the mountains, camping trips, staycations, long weekend getaways, and just exploring some national hot spots. 

As I begin to prepare for some upcoming trips, I noticed I've found myself trying to find some items that are not only easy to travel with, but will make my travel experience lighter and easier. I want to invest in items that I can take with me no matter where I am traveling. 

As I perfect my travel accessories, I wanted to share with you the go-to pieces I've found so far that will serve you well no matter your destination! 

PS - if you have any travel accessories that you can't live without, please let us know! We love learning about new products!

Spring Athleisure under $100



Happy Saturday!! We hope you're all having a great weekend so far and if you're a mother, then we want to wish you an early Happy Mother's Day!

Raise your hand if you are loving this athleisure trend? All hands should be raised. This trend has to be one of the best because it essentially gives us women the "okay" to wear what we're already wearing in public. I mean, I can't tell you how many times I go to yoga in the morning and then end up wearing my leggings and a athletic top all day for grocery shopping, running errands, and yes, even meeting up with friends for a drink.

Besides given women (and men) even more of a reason to dress comfortably in public, this athleisure trend does elevate it a bit. Now we're starting to see t-shirt dresses, trendy tennis shoes, and more stylish tees. For the most part I live in my Zella leggings during the week, but I know if I had an athleisure dress like one of the ones pictured above I would probably wear it non-stop.

What's you're favorite kind of athleisure? Do you gravitate toward the shoes? toward the casual dresses and skirts, or toward the fun tees? Let us know in the comments!

Ruffles, Ruffles, and More Ruffles - all under $100!




They're fun, they're flirty, and they're one of this season's biggest trends - ruffles! What I love most about this trend is that you can go as small or as big as you want. If you're feeling bold you can opt for a ruffle skirt like the one below or opt for something more subtle like this ruffle sleeve tee.

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you're all having a great week so far! Today's post is a fun one because I'm sharing my ruffle wish list with you all! I love that staying on trend doesn't have to be expensive. In this case, everything I've found and listed below is under $100! When I'm buying trendier pieces, I prefer to spend less on them as they may not last me for years to come. But a trendy item at a great price point? I'm sold!

Shop my favorites below and let us know which item strikes your fancy the most! We love hearing your feedback and learning more about you!
