Every time I hear the word “scrunchie” I 1) cringe 2) hearken back to my oversized sweatshirts and bunches up socks 3) repeat “my lucky srunchie. It helped me pass Spanish.” (Name that movie). So today, now that scrunchies have some way made their way back into our vocabulary, we are making a lucky scrunchie with this DIY shamrock scrunchie, just in time for St. Patrick’s day.
Are you familiar with Trompe-l’oeil? It means “deceive the eye” in French for those linguists out there. It’s a technique that makes a painting or design appear three-dimensional through optical illusion. The technique originated in the Baroque period and it’s still going strong today! When brainstorming our second T-shirt (If you missed our Matisse T-shirt line, make sure you check it out), we wanted to create whimsical Trompe-l’oeil-inspired designs, and that’s what the ‘Fooled Ya! T-Shirt Collection’ is all about! No need to add too many additional accessories because these shirts include them for you, Take a look at all the designs and let us know which one is your favorite!

Have you seen our collaboration with Winter Water Factory? If not, you need to check it out! Being a new mom, I wanted nothing more than to be able to match with my baby boy, however, I also wanted to make sure that these clothes were perfectly acceptable to wear on their own, whether you have a babe to coordinate with or not. As we head into colder temperatures, it’s oftentimes tricky to figure out the transition so our team got together for our annual Christmas photo shoot (see it here!) and we all donned Winter Water pieces, styled to suit our different tastes. I love how it turned out! Here’s a look at how we each styled our Bugs and Leaves line! How would you wear your Winter Water Factory? I want to see!
Bonus! Today through October 31st, Winter Water Factory is celebrating Hoodieween! Take 30% off all French terry styles with the code BOO at checkout!
Are you familiar with Indian Block Printing? If you’re not sure, chances are you’d recognize it if you saw it. I absolutely love the look and have been searching for Indian block printed everything lately. From curtains to dresses to bedding, it’s such a versatile look and there are countless design options. We wanted to try our hand at the technique, and though we’ve simplified the process quite a bit, we’re thrilled with the end result! We also discovered that there is a treasure trove of Indian blocks available for purchase on Etsy at a reasonable price. This is a great technique to use on items that need a little refreshing: think tea towels or scarves, or you can try it on a piece of fabric and transform it into anything!

Recently I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of working out and eating healthier. And it’s no cake walk, you guys! Trust me, if there was cake involved, I would be ALL in. Though I have found that having cute, colorful workout gear helps motivate me to get moving. Imagine that 😉 When I came across the shoe color selection Saucony offers, I was absolutely giddy! I couldn’t decide on just one color, so the whole team got a pair so I could live out my rainbow dreams because they come in the loveliest sherbert colors.
Now don’t be mistaken, I’m taking things slow. Nothing too intense or high impact to begin with, so these shoes are great for my long walks and low impact workouts. Of course, I’ll be wearing them all around town with my dresses too! Not only are they cute, but super comfy!
In addition to the shoes, we rounded up our favorite workout outfits to coordinate with our new, revolutionizing RAINBOW work out. Ha! An easy workout in every shade (and letter!) of the rainbow–P(ink), R(ed), O(orange), Y(ellow), G(reen), B(blue)because it’s always easier to remember when there’s a mnemonic device and we’re clearly fans of a rainbow. Plus, who doesn’t want to match their shoes to their scrunchie?
If you’re in need of some motivation to get moving, take a look at the shoes, gear and a few moves we’re trying!
