rise apparel

I know there are quite a few boutique options for you to shop out there and sometimes it can be overwhelming, right? I decided to partner up with Rise Apparel for some pieces each month so you can see how I’m styling things that are actually available for purchase right now! I’ll always have a discount code for you guys “SMALLFRY20” to shop as well and I am hoping it will motivate me to show my OOTD (outfits of the day) which I stopped doing this Summer but you guys always ask about because you’re the nicest humans.

best boy wardrobe tips!

abercrombie kids

All my best tips for creating a wardrobe both you and your boy will love! Filled with all my opinions — take it for what it’s worth! My #1 tip is to fill their closet only with pieces you both like. So when they start flexing their decision-making muscles you won’t cringe. I don’t take my kids shopping, ever. It’s not fun for anyone! At least yet. So I shop online and I pull my favorite items, items I know they’ll like that I like, too, on separate tabs and I show the boys all the tabs at once and … Read more

This post is brought to you by Abercrombie Kids. All opinions are my own. Abercrombie Kids sent my boys the greatest back-to-school care package and I wanted to share what my kids picked and a few of my other favorite items from their Fall Arrivals! One thing to note about Abercrombie Kids, the clothing quality is truly next level. Russ has commented on clothing maybe three times in his life said how soft, yet durable the t-shirts felt!  As I’ve been shopping for my kids for Back to School, Abercrombie Kids is sort of in a class of its own as far … Read more

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks of Thursdasy #nsale and it’s one of my favorite shopping days simply because it’s a chance to get pre-season buys at a discount! We’re all so used to buying season clearance items, it feels so much more exciting this way! I have my Nordstrom Rewards card so I am shopping early and it’s not too late to get yours, too! The catalog came (you can view it online, here!) so we all have a little more info on what to expect in this sale and although the styling is wack, they’re highlighting what (I think) they … Read more

sunglasses FAQ

This post took far too long to get put up, but she’s here and that’s all that matters, right? Sunglasses. Windows to the soul. JK.

Sunnies, shoes, jackets, make-up, jewelry etc. Easy to stay on-trend this way in a less expensive way. So here’s my plan of attack on sunglasses. Trendy styles I buy on the cheap. Styles that I know will have some staying power I put more money into! I have … Read more
