Orange Nautical Shackle Bracelet

Orange Nautical Shackle Bracelet

enamored with the simplicity of this Orange Nautical Shackle bracelet. Yes, the color is a bit flashy, but really any guy could wear this accessory. It’s made from sailing paracord rope and can be adjusted in length to fit different size wrists. Find more styles at Need Supply Co.

comfort, and as Megan and I always say there’s nothing like a great tee and a pair of jeans (and of course some bright lipstick!). I’ve had my eye on these kimono tops for a while now and without needing to say too much more, any one of these UZI tees would be a great bonus to my wardrobe. Check ’em all out here or here.

Printed Rustic Scarf

Been..

Lemlem Printed Rustic Scarf

Lemlem Printed Rustic Scarf

feeling less than inspired when it comes to women’s apparel lately. Either too much going on, not enough, weird fit, or simply just not special enough. The result is I find myself shifting the focus over to accessories like this standout scarf from Lemlem to update my look. It’s printed by hand in Ethiopia using hand carved wooden blocks. Simply badass.

Olioboard

Have you heard..

Olioboard

Olioboard

of Olioboard? Maybe you have and I’m the last one to the party, but this online community is pretty incredible. You can create interior design mood boards (which I’m still playing around with), get inspired by other people’s boards, peruse a selection of home decor, and so much more that I have yet to discover. What drew me in is that you can actually shop the products right from there, so there’s no hunting down the source if you happen to fall in love with anything on this site. Surely a handy one to have bookmarked.
