Fall is Officially Here

Tammy Hiveley - September 25, 2019

Fall is officially here, and with it comes fall fashion. It’s really one of the best times of the year to go shopping. You’re excited to wear sweaters again, and ready to cozy up in layers and fun denim. This year is certainly no different for me. I’m loving everything I’m seeing so far for the big trends. If you haven’t noticed, animal print is …

What’s in MY Cart? What’s in yours?

Tammy Hiveley - April 9, 2019

As most of you know, Wild Ruffle does not stock shoes in the shop. While there are a few different reasons why, the main reason is… Why would we? when we have shopbop.com at our fingertips? For real, my heart-eyes can’t handle the cuteness on that site. And did I mention their FREE shipping and FREE returns?!! I have to click back over there to …

Spring Broken

Cate Mezyk - March 19, 2019

I just returned from the most horrifying of all tasks one does right before heading to a warm weather destination – swim suit shopping. And though this item on the to-do list is always a daunting one, this year it’s particularly awful. Why, you ask? Because swimwear seriously sucks right now. Designers, what are you thinking? Oh, it looks adorable on the hanger. The bright …

So, we’re record setters here in Minnesota. Yep, we have the distinction of having the snowiest February in the history of the state (or at least since they started recording that sort of thing). Something to be proud of, right? Right. Except I think it’s a record we all could’ve done without. Even my school aged children are ready to be done with days off, …

As Tammy and I gear up for Small Business Saturday (you’re coming, right?! – check out the Facebook event page here), we’re also busy running around town getting ready for Thanksgiving. There is much to be thankful for, that’s for sure. Thankfully, I’m staying comfy and CUTE in my new Tretorn buffalo plaid shoes. So many of you have asked where I got them, so …

Plans Schmans

Cate Mezyk - September 25, 2018

I’m not typically a planner. In fact, I’m kind of a fly by the seat of my pants, last minute kind of girl. Most of the time, this plays in my favor because truly – life is more interesting when you can be spontaneous. When you go with the flow you stumble upon some really fun adventures. When it doesn’t work well is when you …

In The Midst of the Storm

Tammy Hiveley - October 6, 2016

Today we are headed over to Apple Valley to set up the boutique for Sparkle! If you’re just tuning in and haven’t heard us gushing about it – Sparkle is a Christian Women’s Conference put on by River Valley Church. As Cate wrote about HERE, we are helping put on the boutique within the conference. This event will host over 50 handmade vendors – all excited to …

Neighborhood Block Party

Tammy Hiveley - May 27, 2015

My new street has started an Annual Memorial Day block party {we’re only on year 2}. Whoop Whoop! After waking from the winter hibernation, the neighbors rallied together to start the summer-season off on a day that means so much to so many! The fun and festivities were perfect. Nothing over the top, just new friends getting to know each other better over food and drinks. …

Strip Your Layers

Tammy Hiveley - May 20, 2015

Yesterday I woke up with the sun shining in my face so I should’ve been warm and comforted but I wasn’t. I was freezing. Chilled to the bone for no apparent reason. I just couldn’t get my body temperature up to normal no matter what I did. What’s wrong with me? Hot coffee helped a tiny bit but the giant Okoboji sweatshirt I was swimming …
