Moms Monday : Aprons for Moms

Have you seen the featured seller post on Etsy today?

It’s about Creative Chic which is a collaborative effort of  5 women to create very cute aprons.

Here is the interview:  Featured Seller: Creative Chics

I really thought it was an interesting read. It’s nice to see mothers running their own business with their creative interests. I hope one day my mother will do that 🙂

Here are some of their aprons:

 Womens Sweetheart Hostess Apron

Retro Ruffled Apron

Womens Sweetheart Hostess Apron – Floral

 Sexy Womens Halter / Beautiful Retro Floral

Friday Faves – Spring Looks for Dads

This is my follow up post to my post last week on Friday Faves – Spring Looks for Moms

Yeah. Dad’s usually aren’t so into the fashion scene and spring style trends probably sound like a bunch of hoopla to men – but take a look at these cool picks for men. Hey – you won’t have to shop! All the links to these great items are provided so you can zoom right to the one that catches your eye. 🙂

For the Quirky Dad

 I work with a very fun and  quirky lawyer who just had a new baby boy. He wears bow ties to work with a plaid suit and suspenders. Oh and he gave his son the middle name “Stucky”. I made these picks with his taste in mind.

1. Check out this sweet New Dad and Baby Boy Set of 2 Tie Shirts from ChicCoutureBoutique

2. Nifty Sherlock Holmes Cufflinks from BeautySpot

3. 3 snazzy Vintage 1950s Bowties from vntagequeen

4. A playful Ecofriendly Dad Wooden Key Fob from Ireneagh

For the Dapper Dad

This is the kind of dad I have personal experience with. My dad wore dress shoes very often as I recall. He also wore rings and old-fashioned hats. He wore nice suits and ties, and I’m pretty sure he owned tie clips. My step-dad, also quite dapper, has a good collection of suits, ties, shoes, shirts… I’ll have to see if he has tie clips. He’s also a fan of rings and brief cases.

1. Cool engraved Boss Dude Tie Clip from ManoyMetal

2. Handsome Multi Stone Mens Ring from thesilverman

3.  Classic Rockport Mens Wing Tip Oxfords from RetroVintage123

4. Fashionable Briefcase in Dark Navy Leather from jennyndesign

For the Outdoorsman Dad

My older brother has become quite the outdoorsman of his own making (oops I misspelled it on the picture – but you get the point). Just the other day I watched him build a fire on the shore of a lake with branches and dry grasses. It certainly wasn’t a huge feat, but it was something our parents never taught him to do. I made this collection with him in mind.

1. Every man needs a good Flannel Shirt Checked Black/Green from BlackboardLabel

2. A tough pair of Vintage Herman Survivors Mens Boots in Oxblood from RabbitHouseVintage *

3. A casual Brown and Cream Plaid Cotton Fedora from rocksandsalt

4. A sturdy Vintage Oversized Caramel Leather Duffle Bag from claudedonohoshop

*RabbitHouseVintage  created a 10% off coupon just for you wallinspired readers. It’s wallinspired   🙂

For the Chill Dad

This actually is also based on my brother (he’s not a dad but I’ve seen dads with this look). He’s into rock (bands like Coheed and Cambria, Avenged Sevenfold, and Sevendust) and I think the other side of his style comes from his love of music. He wears a lot of neutral colors all year round, which isn’t odd for a man (or a woman in my opinion – since I do the same thing). He wears a lot of tee shirts with a sort of Grunge look. He likes aviators (sunglasses) and the ring in the picture reminds me of his wedding ring.

1. A masculine For Him Bracelet Aluminum Wire and Waxed Cotton from Kosmika

2. Edgy My Moon My Man mens t shirt from blackbirdtees

3. Sleek Aviator Sunglasses Black Frames and Yellow Lenses from DontUWantMe

4. A rustic Copper Wood Grain Tree Bark Mens Band from tinahdee

Stay tuned for more look book features next Friday!

Thursday Food for Thought: Your Earliest Memory

Last week I had a discussion with my mom and brother about what our earliest memories were.

I remembered riding around the neighborhood with my brother in our red toy corvette. I also remembered an old lady that lived down the street from us in a green house. I could also picture that a park that we used to call “Green Hill” had a carousel. It doesn’t anymore. My mom told me, “you were about 2 when all those things happened”. I was surprised I could remember back that far.

What about you? What is your earliest memory? Please share!

Moms Monday: Rockabilly Maternity Wear

Hey everyone! I hope the start of your work-week is going well!

I like to share cool Etsy items for expecting moms from time to time and I hope you will love this one as much as I do!

TicciRockabilly is a shop based in Budapest, Hungary who has some fun maternity dresses in 1950s style.

Anyone wondering: What is rockabilly?

rockabilly |ˈräkəˌbilē|noun

a type of popular music, originating in the southeastern U.S. in the 1950s, combining elements of rock and roll and country music.

ORIGIN 1950s: blend of rock and roll and hillbilly .

(Definition from my mac’s dictionary)

I just love how the dresses are photographed and I swoon over vintage dresses– so if I were pregnant I would definitely be checking out these dresses!

If you’re not pregnant, like me, don’t despair. TicciRockabilly also has pinup dresses and clothing for gals like us 🙂

Thursday Food for Thought: When Was the Last Time You Tried Something New?

Good morning!

I’m excited to start this day and I hope you are, too.

If you’re not, I’m sorry. Maybe asking yourself this question will help you explore the great potential each day offers us to learn, grow, and be happy.

When was the last time you tried something new? Do you remember?

Did you try eating at  a new restaurant? Or did you eat a fish taco for the first time? (I did a few weeks ago).

Did you listen to some music from an artist that you just recently discovered? Or did you try writing your own song?

Please share the new things you’ve tried recently and what you plan to try today!

Just comment below!
