Valentine's Day Gift List - For Him

Valentine's Day Gift List - For Him


Valentine's Day is right around the corner so I thought I'd share a few ideas for gifts for the guy in your life. My hubby is quite particular with clothes, although I seem to have cracked the code. I actually bought the Banana Republic two in one Donegal blazer below as a Christmas gift (still on sale in stores!) and he loved it. Beard products are great if your guy is sporting one (duh!) but if not, then cologne is always a great gift. REI has by far, hands down the BEST socks ever. My hubby's mother buys them for him every Christmas and honestly, I want to steal them! Super absorbent, low-profile and perfect arch support for running or whatever kind of fitness you are into. I just discovered Ben Sherman shoes and am LOVING them! A nice work bag is always appreciated, as is a new shaving kit. My hubby seems to use his until it's falling apart....and speaking of hubby, I'm actually rushing to post this so we can watch a movie. Oh and if you have already bought a flask, a shaker and all other beer/liquor accoutrements and Amazon gift card never fails! :)Have a great rest of the weekend, loves!

Palm Breeze

Hey there lovely ladies! It's Thursday and I couldn't be more excited for the weekend because it's Girls Weekend!!! My friend and her daughter are coming in for a visit from Boone, NC. We'll be hitting the pool, doing our nails, making some paleo ice cream in my new ice cream maker and maybe some shopping too. Well, for my friend - not for me! (see this post for details on why). As you may or may not know, there is no Target store (quelle horror!) so we typically always make a stop there and/or Trader Joe's. Either way, it's going to be a great time catching up and playing Auntie Jen.

So I saw this shirt on another blogger I follow ( and immediately FELL IN LOVE. I have been a bit obsessed lately with the palm print. It all started with the Lilly Pulitzer for Target sale when I snapped up a pair of the green palm print pants from the floor and nearly squealed because they were my size! Since then, I've bought this shirt, cushions for my outdoor chairs and saw the perfect sized palm plant that would complete my summer living room makeover (do home items count for #nospendjune?). At any rate, in retrospect I think this shirt would've looked better with a pair of white skinnies but these linen pants have been a periennal favorite of mine for about five summers now. I found them in Nordstrom's junior department and STILL had to have them hemmed. I'm quite sure my tailor loves me. Since the pants are older though, I've linked some similar styles below.
