  • Cropped-Wide Leg Pants- If you’re like me, you love shopping a little too much. I like to “browse” some of my favorite shops every weekend to see what is trending (and by browse, I mean impulse buy yet another striped piece. #GuiltyAsCharged). One style that I have been seeing EVERYWHERE is the cropped wide leg pant. Remember gauchos from the early 2000’s? Well, they’re back and chic-er than ever!

Festival fashion has become its own genre of clothing over the past few years as both festivals and social media has skyrocketed in popularity. Did your outfit moment really happen if you didn’t get a picture for your Instagram? That might seem a bit extreme, but we have to admit that half the fun in getting dressed up is curating the perfect photo to showcase your look and sharing it.

Much like fashion shows, festival-wear is an exaggeration of clothing that wouldn’t always reflect day-to-day style. However, the trends that we see emerging from Coachella to Bonnaroo...

It’s the end of another school year and graduation caps are flying into the air in celebration of hard work and well-earned diplomas. It can be difficult to figure out the perfect gift for the graduate in your life if you want to come up with a present that is out of the box. Skip the clichés like the Dr. Seuss classic “Oh the Places You Will Go” or the fancy pen that they will most definitely misplace. With such a big milestone in someone’s life, we have the perfect way to celebrate their achievement.

When people say that being a parent is the hardest job of all, they really aren’t exaggerating. The job involves some serious blood, sweat, and tears without a whole lot of time to yourself. Motherhood is such a great gift, to be able to care for and raise a child, to watch them grow and learn. But motherhood can also be tough and exhausting.

This Mother’s Day, it's mom that needs a gift!
