Gingham: Its Not Just For Picnics Anymore…

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but gingham print is a big trend for this spring. I’ve always found myself gravitating towards this print, even if it does make me feel like a picnic blanket or a country bumpkin sometimes.  Either way, I am all over this trend.

Window Shopping on the Internets

I currently have all of these tops in a shopping cart on their respective sites and haven’t bought any of them.  And I probably won’t.  Yeah I have a problem.  More than just one problem apparently, as most of these have ruffles.  Just trying to keep it real yall.

Hats Off to Spring!

An old time accessory that doesn’t get as much action as it should is the hat. I’m not talking about the ratty baseball cap that you use to cover those bad hair days when you are running errands. I’m talking about hats with real style, I’m talkin bout these…

If Boys Were Dolls…

I would dress my boy up in all these cuter than cute things. I can hope and dream all the live long day, but there is pretty much no way in hell my husband is going to sport any of this…but a girl can dream! So, for any of you ladies with more pull in the wardrobe department than I have… check out some of these super fly looks for men.
