How to effortlessly style a floral dress for Valentine’s Day

Floral is one of my favorite patterns to wear. So when Cleo Madison reached out to me asking if I would like to blog about one of their lovely dresses, I was delighted to see they had floral options! What girl can say no to flowers? And speaking of flowers…can you believe Valentine’s Day is just around the corner?!  I feel like it creeps up on me every year. John and I never really go big for Vday, but we do like to make it special for each other. Last year, we gifted each other Enso Rings and this year, we’re doing a date night dinner at The Prado. 

This Valentine’s Day, I wanted to wear something simple yet fun, and easy to throw on for all the day’s festivities. So if you’re on the hunt for a flattering, soft, stretchy and nursing friendly dress, look no further than Cleo Madison ❤ My two favorite things about this dress are the length, and that it’s nursing friendly (even though it’s not actually maternity)! It’s so hard to shop for clothes sometimes because I’m always looking for pieces I can nurse in that aren’t part of a maternity line. But sometimes, like with this dress, I score a piece that totally works! Continue reading

New Spring Line of Tassel Keychains

These new tassel charm keychains are debuting today on my etsy shop, Stick & Stone Co.! You can read a mini bio on my shop here and on the blog, if you’re not already familiar with my products ❤


I designed these tassels with inspiration coming from all things spring– the beach, spring flower colors, cool drinks (think colorful limeades and margaritas), and added fun charms to each one to make them personal and unique. Continue reading

Floral Blues

So I have this thing for floral. Any color, pattern, style…if it’s floral, I must have it! Shoes, purses, shorts, skirts, unmentionables….ahem. It’s probably the biggest selection of pattern that I have hanging in my closet! So when I found this gem out shopping the other night at H&M, of course since it was floral (and structured very nicely) I had to have it. And the price wasn’t bad either — $12.95!! What!


Styled: Sandals by Target (similar here), Jeans by Forever21, Necklace by Anthropologie (similar statement piece here).

IMG_8914I paired it with black and white polka dot shorts from H&M the second day, and a fedora from Lucky both of which I bought forever ago.

I must have worn this top about 3 times the week I bought it (once to class, once on a date with John, and once to work). I love it. I mean if it’s not to the same place and no one saw you wear it earlier then it’s fine right?! 😀
