Holy Swoon!

Happy Monday, chickadees! Hope you had a lovely weekend! Dear friends of ours came to visit for the weekend and we had a grand 'ol time! We stopped at our local church festival in the neighborhood and chatted over yummy food and drinks! We also may or may not have gotten a little carried away at the roulette table. It is so nice to catch up with old pals, wouldn't you agree? Take a look at what made me squeal, "Holy Swoon!" while perusing the web this weekend:

[Neon Striped Bow Hair Clip]: How adorable is this striped hair clip? I was just thinking to myself this weekend about how I never wear cute hair accessories.  I mean, let's be honest you lovely people, I am just NOW consistently wearing my hair down and curling it on an [almost] daily basis! Woo-hoo!  It's so much easier to throw it into a top bun and call it a day, but I feel fancy when I have my hair down so I'm going to see how long I can keep this going. However, this bow is absolutely perfect for mornings when I can't get up and get ready before my workout during the school year. The fact that the stripes are red + pink make it that much more fabulous! 

[Flapperdoodle Art Print]: Have y'all seen the CUTEST drawings by Flapperdoodle? If not, you MUST check them out! I happened to stumble upon this shop over the weekend and there are so many that I am absolutely swooning over! The shop owner draws lovely prints by hand of her characters Eloise and Ramona. This hula hoop one is pulling the strings at my heart because it reminds me of my childhood! My sister and I would have hula hoop contests with my grandma in her basement for hours on end. Somehow one of us would always get sassy when the other would win until my grandma would jump in and show us both up! This print is absolutely my sister and me. 

[Rob Hodgson Greeting Card]: Just last week I was swooning over the alligator print from Rob Hodgson and what would you know gals + guys, I stumbled upon this adorable greeting card he designed! I am on the hunt to figure out where I can get my little hands on one of of these darlin' cards because I have just the person in mind I want to send it to. He gets my love for cheeky art and I'm totally smitten!

[Hello! Phone Case]: I have this strange love for all things bright + cheery and my phone cases are no exception! Through the years I have acquired quite the phone case stash but I just cannot help myself.  This phone case caught my eye and it's quite the cutie. I'm tempted to add it to my collection but my online swooning and window shopping might have to do for now!

[Be Lady Like]: Such a simple but much needed reminder to keep it classy, my dears! I have personally been sticking to Coco Chanel's advice, "Once you've dressed, and before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off." Less is more in more ways than one!

[Rizzo Bench]: When it comes to outfit ideas or home design, I tend to drive myself [slightly] insane.  It typically will go a little something like this: Get an idea in head, search for said idea, execute idea, and [typically] cry and stress because the idea did not turn out exactly like it did in my head. Did I mention that I tend to drive myself insane? How about my honeybee because he cannot stand it. My Type-A ness is not always the bee's knees, that is for sure. I have had this lovely idea that the foot of our bed desperately needs a bench but I have yet to find the perfect piece.  I came across this bench and squealed when I realized it came in hot pink. If only I could convince my honeybee that hot pink is gender neutral.  

[Preston Eyeglasses]: Two years ago, I jumped the fence and tried out the home program from Warby Parker.  I loved them so much that I ordered two pairs of glasses within a month of each other and now I am on the hunt for a third.  I just love 'em! I tend to wear my contacts more in the summer months for sunnies purposes, but during the school year I tend to wear my glasses quite often and switch up my frames. They are just another adorable accessory to add to my outfits! I told my honeybee that I wanted to find a pair of red frames so I can channel my inner Sally Jessy Raphael [hey girl hey!] but he was not so amused by my pitch! Clearly I need to work on my bargaining skills!

Hope this lovely loot brought a smile to your face! Now get out there and show Monday what'cha got!
