Valentine’s for HIM

Okay ladies, you have one week to find your man the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. If you’re anything like us… You probably forgot all about Valentine’s Day until today. But don’t you worry.

Here are some inexpensive yet oh-so thoughtful gifts that your man will love!

Valentine's For HIM

  1. Harry’s Truman Foaming Gel Set from Onward Reserve ($20) – Every man loves a good shaving set to make him feel extra fancy while he’s grooming. This set is sleek and includes all your man would need to look clean-cut for a month. 3 blades are included! That’s awesome. Plus, Onward is having a 50% off sale through midnight tonight (2/8/15) with the code FALL50… So you just cannot beat the price for the quality!
  2. Dress Gordon Wool Tartan bow tie from Res Ipsa ($85) – You cannot go wrong with a classy tartan bow tie, especially during the winter months. Res Ipsa has the coolest story too! My law-minded man immediately identified with the brand name and then loved their story (the founders are two Georgia lawyers that wear bow ties… just like my guy!)
  3. Classic Vacuum Camp Mug from Stanley ($25) – Every man loves their coffee. And if your house is like mine, 99% of your mugs are very cutesy & girly. This travel mug says manly all over it, AND it will keep their coffee piping hot for hours and hours because of the vacuum seal.
  4. Eyebobs Total Wit Reading Glasses from Sid Mashburn ($80) – I love a smart man. I also love a man that looks smarter simply because he wears glasses. Yes, that’s shallow. But it’s honest. Will wears glasses sometimes and it gives him that “I’m reeeeeeeeally smart” edge. Obviously, we all already know he is though.. but the glasses are a bonus. These Eyebobs are gorgeous and bring back old school classic look that is oh-so stylish.
  5. Tickets to the Tour de Compadres show in your town! ($45/ ticket) – Whether you catch leg one or leg two, this tour is one you and your guy cannot miss! With Needtobreathe headlining and special guests like Switchfoot, Ben Rector, Drew Holcomb & Colony House, this is a concert that your man can get excited about and look forward to until this summer!! And we all know that the best gifts are the ones that you get to benefit from too! 🙂

Happy shopping for the man in your life!! Tomorrow I’ll post some hints for the fellas (aka. things for you to casually bring up in the next week and pray that he surprises you with next Saturday :))

Elizabeth & Clarke: Winter Collection 2014 – “The Bronte”

It’s been a great week in my closet thanks to Elizabeth & Clarke! First, there was “The Swan”. Then, “The Taylor”. And now, the third and final piece, “The Bronte”. It’s absolutely darling and great for that upcoming Christmas party that you want to walk into simply shining.

So here’s outfit number 3! “The Bronte” – A black sleeveless top with flowing layers and a high-collared neckline:

I was fortunate enough to be able to wear my “Bronte” to an impromptu Drew Holcomb concert in the city last night (go ahead and preorder his new album “Medicine” NOW). Hubby picked me up from work, I changed in the car (which was super impressive, by the way), and I arrived to the concert feeling like a million bucks!!

I chose to wear my new white & black patterned dress from Fabrik (yes, that’s a dress under the top… pretty cool, huh?), black patterned tights, and my black suede high heeled booties. Also, it dropped to 30 degrees last night, so of course I layered my black quilted jacket with gold accents on top. What I loved most was that my “Bronte” collar still poked out from underneath my jacket. So even though I had to have a coat, I still felt fancy!

So what do you think of my Elizabeth & Clarke Winter Collection box?? Pretty rad, huh? Which piece is YOUR favorite? And don’t forget to look ahead to the Spring Collection. You can go ahead and reserve your box now! 🙂

Elizabeth & Clarke: Winter Collection 2014 – “The Taylor”

Elizabeth & Clarke is my new favorite way to shop. They are a fashion retailer that focuses on quality and sends beautiful tops straight to your door every season through a seasonal subscription box! Yesterday, I reviewed the first of three tops from their Winter Collection, “The Swan”.

Today I want to present to you outfit number 2! “The Taylor” – A classic white button-on blouse:

I’m so excited to now have this classic basic in my wardrobe! The quality is superb, and it is the greatest base layer for all of your winter layering wants and needs!

I chose to pair it with my favorite quilted vest, a sparkly blush skirt, my riding boots, some simple pearls and a bar necklace. It was the greatest Sunday morning church outfit that quickly transitioned to lunch, shopping, and coffee with friends.

Another winter must-have.

Tell me your thoughts on E&C! I’m already getting ready to make my selections for my Spring 2015 box. But I’m not even through showing off the Winter 2014 collection! I’ve also got “The Bronte” to show you! 🙂

Elizabeth & Clarke: Winter Collection 2014 – “The Swan”

I recently wrote about this great company, Elizabeth & Clarke, and how I was so excited that Will had bought me a subscription for a year’s worth of their fabulous shirts for my birthday. What a guy… (You can read my post here.)

Well this weekend, I’m so excited to show you what E&C is all about! I got my box on Friday, and all of the pieces are wonderful! Since E&C chooses neutral colors, the possibilities for outfits are endless! I’m no fashion blogger, but I wanted to “model” my new duds for you to make you as big a believer in E&C as I am! Plus, I had way to much fun pulling out all of the clothes I already have in my closet to form these outfits… way too much fun 🙂

Here’s outfit number 1! “The Swan” – An off-white sweater with brown suede elbow-patches:

From the elbow patches to the comfy material that “The Swan” is made of, I’m obsessed.

When paired with a plaid button down and my favorite green pants from Old Navy, those awesome J.Lo booties from Kohl’s, my new bag from Mimi’s, and some sparkly jewelry (including my DIY Coin Bracelet), it made for the perfect around town on a Saturday morning outfit. But I also felt fancy enough for the Tour of Homes this afternoon!

Winter fashion at it’s finest.

What do you think about Elizabeth & Clarke?? Three high quality tops to your door each season at a great cost… I feel like it doesn’t get much better than that! I’ve also posted outfits for “The Bronte” and “The Taylor”! Love all of my E&C winter pieces!
