Fun Finds on Friday

Today’s edition of Fun Finds is brought to you by the oh-so-lovely Susan of Ava Grace’s Closet. As soon as I discovered her blog last year I knew I had found a kindred spirit. Though we’ve never met in person, I just know we’d have a great time sitting down over a glass of wine, chatting fashion, mom talk (she’s mommy to 2 girls and a boy too!), or whatever subject may arise. If only I lived in the Toronto area… Do yourself a favor and give her blog a click – you’ll be glad you checked it out!

“I met Cate early on in my blogging adventure via the weekly What.I.Wore.Wednesday link-up and liked her immediately.
Not only does she have great fashion sense, a shoe closet that I envy and an amazing jewelry line, but she’s also a mama to 3…just like me.
One of my favorite weekly reads is definitely her Fun Finds on Friday posts :: I always see something I l.o.v.e.
So excited to be taking it over today while Cate is on vacation!

In the spirit of summer getaways, I bring you these must-have’s and a few I really want to have’s:

 A pretty retro swimsuit in cherry red. This one is by Anthropologie and I just love the fact that you could play in the pool or ocean with the kids without worrying about showing just a little too much to anyone. Not to mention that you would look incredible strolling down the beach with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses on. 

Anyone else have hair that does not do well in heat and humidity? Then this is a MUST TRY. Bumble and Bumble’s surf spray is saltwater based and gives you “beachy hair” without the beach. Available at Sephora.

Carry all your beachy goodness in this colorful chevron tote. Big enough to hold everything you need and anything any of your 3 kids or husband or boyfriend might ask for. A good thing.
Even better when it’s handmade via Ooh Baby Designs on Etsy. 

Capture all the fun moments retro-style with this Vintage Polaroid 600 Camera Kit. How fun is this? Bonus points for getting prints instantaneously. Available at Urban Outfitters.
I love turquoise all the time but especially in the summer months. And even more when paired with crisp white. This pretty starfish ring will always remind you of the beach. You can find this one by Kenneth Jay Lane at Saks

Hope your travels take you to the beach, any beach, this summer!
Happy Friday.”

  • I love redecorating my house. Unfortunately, as I’ve said before, I don’t have carte blanche to spend all of our money on it. So instead, I get creative, switching up what we already have in our house, and finding new homes for it. One of the things I love to freshen up is our coffee… [Continue Reading]

    How To Decorate A Coffee Table
  • As we all know, I’m a big fan of mixing styles into one look. Mixing mediums is my thing. Last week when the weather in Minnesota went from 60 degrees to 30, back to 60, all I could do was layer, layer, layer. And grin and bare it. One of the days I threw on… [Continue Reading]

    What Are the Odds
  • My husband and I have this ongoing funny thing where he thinks a lot of what I wear is totally crazy town, and I laugh because I don’t mind being different.
