NEW ITEMS COMING SOON
New items are coming to the shop Thursday at 11am CST!
TURNAROUND TIME
As you all know, most of my items are ready to ship, but I'm sort of doing an in between these days where half the things are ready to ship and the other half are made to order (Thanks to life: a full time job, toddler, etc). That said, all orders will have a 1-2 week turnaround time, but I aim to get them out much faster than that if possible!
SIZING
Each item on the website has a very detailed item description. I try my best to explain the texture of the fabric, how best to style it, the fit, washing instructions, etc. Please be sure to read prior to purchasing to avoid any confusion

Almond Butter Banana Toast

Posted by Katie Convertino on

This sweet toast is the perfect healthy treat to refuel a nursing mama, or anyone really. I am still nursing and find that I'm always hungry. You can find me rummaging through the cabinets trying to find something to eat at least 10 times a day. This toast is quick & easy to make and there is very little prep/cleanup involved. Almond butter is an excellent source of protein and whole grain carbohydrates can provide an energy boost. A satisfying breakfast, lunch or snack! 

Almond Butter Banana Toast
2 slices bread of choice
bananas
almond butter
honey 
coconut flakes

Toast bread. Spread thin layer of almond butter on each piece of toast. Slice bananas and place on top of almond butter. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with coconut flakes. Enjoy!

My next goal is to make homemade almond butter, as I've heard it's very easy. Have you made your own butters at home? Which ones are your favorites?

MAMA

Charcoal & Rose Face Cleanser | Glow Rose & Bramble Mist | Glow Serum

I've had the opportunity to personally use all of these products and they are really great. The charcoal cleanser foams up just a tiny bit and leaves my face feeling smooth and clean. The Rose & Bramble Mist has a mix of rose & witch hazel scent to it and is very refreshing. The serum is moisturizing and doesn't leave your skin oily. You can read more about each of these products, their ingredients, and uses by clicking the links above. 

BABY

Little Explorer's Shoo BugBlue Chamomile - Baby Balm 

As much as I love using natural products on myself, I love using natural products on my son even more. I limited myself to these two products even though I wanted them all - ha! I've been looking for a natural bug spray so I was super excited to find this! I haven't had a chance to try it out yet since it's been raining here, but I've heard great things! and this baby balm smells amazing! Also, I'm slightly obsessed with the color of it.

MinErbs is an amazing brand with some amazing women behind it! If you'd like to check out more of their products, click here.

Sven Clogs + a GIVEAWAY + a SALE code

Posted by Katie Convertino on

Anyone that knows me knows that I'm a clog lover. I've tried multiple brands, and while there are amazing ones out there, I always find myself coming back to the same ones: Sven clogs.
 
What I love about Sven clogs
Sven Clogs is a family run business, based out of Chisago, MN. Their shoe bases are made in Austria and Sweden, and their leather comes from all over the US. All shoes are handmade in the United States. The owner, Lisa, is such a gem. We've been in touch for a few years now, and she even reached out to congratulate me when my son was born; how amazing is that!?!
Customization
One of my favorite things about Sven clogs is that you can completely customize your shoe! You can choose the style, leather option, and color, as well as base height and color.  
Leather Options
You have so many leather options and colors to choose from! They have nu buc, smooth, patent, suede, and metallic. Each category has multiple colors as well! You can browse their IG at @svenclogs to view more photos, ask me for input, shoot them an email with questions, or order some swatches!
Heel height
You have the option to choose low, medium, or high heels. I own at least one of each height and love them all. My personal favorite are the medium height because they can be easily dressed up or down. I love the low heel for everyday wear and I love the high heel for dressing up. They all look amazing with skinny jeans, flare jeans, jumpsuits, dresses, you name it! 

A few of my personal favorites:

LOW
      
1 | 2 | 3
MEDIUM
      
1 | 2 | 3
HIGH
   
1 | 2 | 3
 
You can shop the entire collection on their website here. Be sure to check out their closeout section as well - they list tons of discounted clogs there!
They also sell baby/kid clogs!
  

SALE

They will be running a sale for 20% off for Labor Day! Use promo code RELAX (valid 8/31/17-9/4/17).
Let me know if you need any help deciding or have any questions! I could talk about clogs all day!

The Perfect "Mom" Jeans

Posted by Katie Convertino on

Jeans | Cru's Shirt | Cru's Pants | Cru's Shoes

 

I love jeans.

I know I really only need a few good pairs, but it's one of those things I find myself wanting more of. Every once in a while, I set out to find the "perfect" pair and what really ends up happening is I have 10 different shopping carts full with thousands of dollars worth of jeans.

And so I sit. I contemplate. I narrow down. I buy a few.

Does anyone relate?

I've been particularly drawn to loose fitting and flared/cropped bottom jeans! I've been searching and narrowing down to my favorites so I thought I'd share a few here for anyone else that might be looking. Which ones are your favorite? Do you have any to add to my growing list? Leave a comment below!

I personally own these first ones from Madewell and they are my all time favorite jeans. I also own the high waisted Asos Jeans and love those as well! Both run true to size (or size down if you're in between)
