Knotty By Nature

These simple chic and cheap sandals are made for walkin' the beach as well as the city streets - and obviously the sidewalks of Suburbia.

Welcome to the Jungle

Jungle prints, that is. Which is an overly generous description of my latest mini-obsession. What I am finding myself drawn to is prints of the leafy and frond-y persuasion. They satisfy the springtime floral itch while still being different enough to stand out in a sea of blossoms. And if flowers just aren't your thing anyway, these botanical prints have a cool graphic, modern vibe that are anything but dowdy.

Wrap Star

I've never met a stripe I didn't like, but my closet is heavy with those of the navy/white and black/white variety. This cute ruffled wrap dress is just the thing to add a dose of feminine fun to the mix. It'll look just as cute with a surplus jacket and trainers as it will with ankle boots and contrasting ear candy. Wrap it up, I'll take it!Wrap Star

Well, maybe not technically aphrodisiacs, but a few sweet little numbers that have made my heart skip a beat lately. A quite random assortment of items that, while inexpensive, have made my day-to-days a bit brighter. So whether you celebrate Valentines Day, Galentines Day, Surviving-the-Doldrums-of-Winter Day...maybe treat yourself or someone special to a small luxury and spread the love!

Five Fab and Frugal Fall Finds

Oh hi there. I seem to have returned from an unplanned but very prolonged blogging hiatus. I won't bore you with updates because I'm certain that all the tens of you who might read this are just as busy - or busier - with your lives in your own corner of Suburbia!
However, it never hurts to take a quick timeout and think about pretty little fall finds. Especially since I know you have likely been spending a fair amount of time and money stocking up on new school clothes, supplies, and sports equipment for everyone but yourself! Here's a few guilt-free indulgences that I've been eyeing this fall:

1. I thought cozy and cool usually lived on different streets, but this cute little number manages to be both! I'll be pairing it with everything from feminine midi dresses and boots to jogging trousers and sneakers.
2. I like to update my pajama drawer every season, and this time around I'm eyeing velvet/velour kimonos like this. Comfortable and dare I say a bit glamorous (the kimono, not me!) I'm so sure my kids will be impressed as I'm packing their lunches and signing school forms.
3. Cutest knit hat ever...without being juvenile. Why not add a little fun and whimsy to your life?
4. Colorful statement earrings that probably won't will be ripped out of my earlobe by a grabby baby.
5. Pretty and practical china blue velvet loafers. Pairs up so nicely with autumnal hues.

And here's the look I've been running around in lately on repeat during this seasonal transition...layering and comfort being the name of the game!

Plush Crush

Cozy, forgiving, timeless, and able to be dressed up or down...velvet is such a good way to bring a little luxe into your fall wardrobe. There are so many great options out there right now, from small accents, like shoes and belts, to full on velvet action in the form of frocks or suits. Personally, I like the subtle touch of a blazer with distressed denim or a pretty pleated midi paired with a cozy sweater or toughened up with a leather jacket.
Other options I'm loving to incorporate the look are herehere, and here!
