Alleyways and Ice Cream Days

Thank God it’s Friday! Sometimes living in a small town can make us feel like there’s absolutely nothing to do, but we are finding that that is when you go out and enjoy the more of what we see and experience everyday. IMG_6418 Grove City alleyways are some of the most beautiful alleys you can experience. You’ll find them all along broad street behind the local businesses downtown. They can lead you to a main road or a fun business, which is where we are headed today.

IMG_6427

IMG_6448 We are going crazy over this new fringe vest that just arrived this week, it pairs great with a white v-neck and denim bottoms or even a pair of shorts and one of our local tees! Shop this look: Vest: $49 & White V-neck: $30 and Necklac: $21 IN STORE NOW!

IMG_6443

When this new vest arrived we were inspired to explore, have fun and take in the joys of the beautiful weather. To our surprise what we thought would be a sunny day turned out to a be a rainy one, and we then were given a choice. To be bummed by the rain, or… continue on with our adventure. IMG_6595 IMG_6598

We chose the latter and decided to go to Sweet Jeanie’s, “The happiest place in town”!

IMG_6599 IMG_6488 We were not disappointed and after much deliberation we decided that a scoop of Zebra Stripes in our favorite waffle cone would brighten up the cloudy day we were having.

IMG_6489 Without much time, it did just that.

IMG_6480 IMG_6505

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

IMG_6580            Stay positive. Find the joy in the little things & make your weekend a fabulous one, we sure plan to 😉

Why La Vie En Rose?

La Vie en Rose is french for life in pink, and this year we wanted to create a show that not only highlights spring in itself, but the feelings and colors it brings. Winter can be rather grey and bring the blues, so this year for our spring show we want to present the very opposite to you!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?!
We have all been there, that awkward moment where we either dress too formal, or not formal enough. Take a deep breath and know you don’t have to go out shopping for an evening gown. We would suggest cocktail attire. Be creative, be you, and be comfortable. For all you last minute shoppers who are nervous you need  a new look, feel free to shop in the boutique before the show it’ll be set up and available to you starting at 6!

We hope to see you there!!

{Talking Tok} “Ties that Tell a Tale”

Let’s talk TOK. With love in the air, the ladies getting their roses and fancy meals, it can be easy to forget the fellas, or we just find ourselves stumped on what to get them.

Some of you may have heard of the TOK Project, if you haven’t here’s your chance to hear a snippet of their story.

The TOK Project was started by this fine looking man we know as Micah List. Micah started the TOK Project after traveling and having his eyes opened to the issue of commercial sex and human trafficking. He decided that something must be done & hence decided to start the TOK Project after discovering his love for men’s fashion and the art of tie making. 
25% of their net profits are donated to help transitional facilities for exploited and trafficked women around the globe.

Let’s get to TOK’in’. (we couldn’t resist)

Giving Winter the Cold Shoulder

Living in Western PA has its ups and downs. After a week or so of snowfall, ice, and feeling lucky if it’s above 30 degrees, you start to grow weary of nights indoors. Don’t get us wrong, we love our hot cups of coffee, but know that we feel your pain when you want to break out the shorts, crops, and sandals.

IMG_9917

IMG_9915Whats our advice for braving  the winter?

IMG_9905Show winter who’s boss. Wander, explore, and adventure, even when you don’t have the energy to.BE CREATIVE. We often times sell ourselves short after getting so used to the day to day that we miss the little things or forget that we are capable of so much more  than what we give ourselves credit for. Try going out into that open field you drive by every day and admire the beauty you miss out on. Pack up the car and visit an old friend, or how about that instrument you forgot you loved playing so much.

IMG_9898Give winter the “cold shoulder” it deserves, because despite how cold and dead it looks outside you carry life on the inside, and that alone should be motivation for you to smile at the snow and take the opportunity that is now before you to experience something new.

IMG_9894

So what are you doing still reading this?! Go on, adventure is waiting for you (:

IMG_0041

We take fun pretty seriously around here, especially when it comes to fun photo sessions with our models.

IMG_0109

This week we introduce best friends Madi + Jessie, they’ve modeled for us for a little over a year. and not only are they gorgeous on the outside, but the beauty they radiate with on the inside is timeless.

IMG_0059

Madi is wearing our new dress + sweater {in stock}. We put her in this to throw everyone off, because we usually have her in what we call “crazy pants”. Working with this beaut is a joy, she’s full of creativity and a pleasure to have around.

IMG_0073Jessie. She is wearing our fox sweater accessorized with the fox earrings of course. {in stock}

Jessie is a natural in front of your camera (especially when she’s with her best friend Madi) , and has a beautiful voice. We enjoy the soft touch she adds to every look she wears.

“Pledging” to stay Warm & Cozy

IMG_0177Making time to sit back and have moments that bring warmth to the heart cozy during life’s hectic moments is key to not only getting by, but to enjoying what life has to offer us.

IMG_0199Halle + Sarah are two gorgeous gals that got to  share warm moments over coffee in the middle of a very hectic week as they were both participating in the craziness of pledge week.

IMG_0241It was beautiful to watch them share laughs and take in great moments with one another as they both had had exhausting days.

IMG_0230

IMG_0265

IMG_0279Recently, a common theme of ours has been the sparkling snow and shivering bones. As enchanting as the winter is, our feet are tired of slipping on ice and our noses are sick of being numb. That being said, we will never be ready to part from cozy knit sweaters, freshly brewed coffee, hand made blankets, and warm toes. The feeling of sitting in perfect company while watching the snow fall is one of our favorites. Although it seems as if life never stops running faster than you and time flies even faster, sometimes forcing everything to stop is essential. Stop thinking, stop stressing, stop working and just breathe. Quiet your mind with Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, calm your heart with soothing conversation, and warm your body with soft sweaters.

Recharge, restart and continue to inspire.

Adventure’s Hues // Bye Bye Blues.

Many of us have experienced the need for adventure while also experiencing the need for cash. No matter the age, we all still like to have fun. Here are some helpful tips on things you can do that are low cost, while still adventurous and fun.

IMG_0314First things first. We all have those little nooks around us that we seem to overlook. Visit your local antique shop. thrift store, or coffee house with that friend you’ve been meaning to hang out with. You’d be surprised how much fun you two will have finding little treasures or finding that old top you gave away.

IMG_0328-2IMG_0328

IMG_0342

IMG_0321IMG_0336

Carpool to the city. When you split gas costs you’d be surprised how much you save! Get dressed up, blast your favorite jams, and get on the interstate for a night on the town. You won’t regret it!

IMG_0346Lastly, we suggest finding an underground musician you’ve never heard, you will usually find that local musicians want more than your money, but your company as well. You’d be surprised how many $5 cover charges are out there with AMAZING music to accompany them.

We all desire moments that make our hearts beat, our eyes water, and bring the chills to our skin. We all want to LIVE.

Don’t let the lack of  the green, give you the blues. Embrace Adventure’s hues and do what you’ve always dreamed of doing.
