April Etsy Love

There is so much good stuff on etsy, it’s sometimes impossible to sort through all of it to find my favorites. Here are some of my favorite things this month:

Super Cute Easter Egg Garland from Sweet Sara Lyn

Pretty Bead Necklace from JullMade

Rose Gold Sideways Wishbone Necklace from Little Hawk Jewelry

Dangly Earrings from Ilexia Designs

Chevron Twill Ribbon from In the Clear (I just bought the pink)

Hooray Bunting Letterpress Card from Paper Lovely Press

Round Vintage Sunglasses from MOD Vintage


Chicago Style

In the short time we spent in Chicago, I noticed some trends in what the girls there were wearing. The style seems to be a little more conservative than New York, but I liked how the fashion seemed super-practical (rain gear), while still stylish. Here’s what I noticed:
1. Hunter Boots are HUGE there. Almost every single girl we passed was wearing them, especially on Monday morning commuting to work (while we were on the train to the airport). Mostly everyone was wearing traditional colors like black, gray or green.
2. Skinny jeans and pants were a necessity, mostly because of the boots.
3. Classic Trench Coats look good on everyone. I saw a big range of styles and sizes, and they always made the wearer look more serious and pulled-together.
4. Practical Totes that are not boring were really popular. The colors everywhere were pretty muted and neutral, but most of the totes I saw were colorful.
5. Beats Headphones were all over the place.

Love on Etsy this Month

This month I am shopping with spring on my mind. When I look at my recent etsy favorites there is definitely a theme – bright colors and flowers. Here are some of the things that I am loving for March:

Sustainable Garden Kit from biophiliadesigns (I totally want to start a little garden on our back porch this spring)

Pink Stripe Diaper Bag from ikabags (I don’t need a diaper bag, but this is the one I’d get if I did)

Gold Flower Studs from peshka

Superhero Print from Ashley G and Drew

Dollhouse-sized Rainbow Cake from Jessie Raye

My Favorite Color


One of my favorite things about February has always been all the pink that turns up everywhere. It’s also the time of year when spring clothes start to pop up in stores, and I’m definitely planning on adding some pink to my closet in the next few weeks. Here are some of my favorites:

– Rock Star Colored Jeggings
Juicy Couture Super Straw Pailette Clutch
Kate Spade Juliana Too Flats
Lilly Pulitzer Critter Earrings
Draped Snail Tank
