Cute & Casual Valentine’s Day Looks

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I’ve never made a big deal about the holiday – it’s fun to go out to eat and get your significant other candy, but huge, grand gestures are just not my thing.

I do however love to bust out the heart print things! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite outfits that celebrate the occasion – some of these pieces I’ve had in my closet for years, but I’ve tried to link things that are similar in my ShopStyle widget on the right hand side of my post.

Gifts for the Hanson Fan in Your Life

This is probably the most unconventional gift guide you’ll ever read but there are so many Hanson fans in my life that I thought it would be fun to put together a post of unique things we might like for Christmas.

Snowed In on Vinyl
Amazon is selling a limited edition pressing of Snowed In on vinyl. While this is not an official piece of merchandise sold by the band themselves, it is still very cool. The U.S. version is green and if you live in the U.K., your pressing is white.

Vintage Hanson Tee
This one takes me back to 1997 – I had this tee in the white version (and still do, except it’s full of holes and yellowed now). Urban Outfitters is selling the black version and I couldn’t be more excited!!

2019 Hanson Wall Calendar
This is beautiful and handmade by someone on Etsy. Actually the next several ideas are from Etsy – sometimes fan created items are better than actual official merchandise from the Hanson.net store.

Hanging Wooden Sign
I want this and may buy it for myself and kind of hate to share it in case it sells out!

Hanson Pins
Add some flair to your bag or show the world who your favorite Hanson brother is with these handcrafted enamel pins. Pins not your thing? She also has patches and plenty of resistance approved designs as well if that’s your thing.


Tulsa Snow Globe
Made famous by 1997’s Tulsa, Tokyo and the Middle of Nowhere, the Tulsa Snow Globe is a coveted item for fans all over the world. Formerly sold at Saks, Ida Red now has them and ship, so what are you waiting for?

Lyric Charm Bracelets
These can be customized and are handmade by another fan. I bought one a few years ago and love wearing mine stacked with other bracelets and I put my Hanson necklace pendant charm on it for an added personal touch.

Gifts for the Cat Lover in Your Life

Christmas is right around the corner! Have you started shopping yet? I’m nearly done before Thanksgiving, which is normal for me because I am not a wait until the last minute person in any aspect of my life, haha.

Instead of the typical gift buying guide, I thought I would create one for the cat lover in your life! I’m a cat lady myself and there’s SO MANY cute cat things out there right now. Take a look at some of my favorites below!

Kate Spade
Kate Spade is really doing it right when it comes to their cat themed products. They have everything from purses, umbrellas, water bottles to cell phone cases. Some items are very affordable, which is always a plus. For the more expensive items, I recommend shopping eBay or Poshmark – sometimes you can find something new at a much cheaper price than if you bought directly from the retailer.

Clothing
If there’s a cat lady in your life, chances are she’ll go nuts over anything with cat print on it. I tend to prefer cute over weird but there’s something for everyone out there. Target is always a good place to check too – they usually have some cute cat print socks!

Mod Cloth
There’s no shortage of cat related items on Mod Cloth! They have everything from cat print leggings, funny t-shirts, books, shoes, kitchen stuff – you name it, they probably have it.

Miscellaneous Items
Maybe your cat lover doesn’t want or need clothing items? There are still simple little gifts that serve a more practical purpose but will still look cute while being functional.

Gifts for Cat Dads
The cat themed gifts are definitely very female oriented but never fear – there ARE some cool cat themed items out there for all the cat dads out there. Etsy is probably your best bet and you’ll be supporting small businesses if you shop there too.

Pinterest Challenge!

I often get outfit ideas from Pinterest because sometimes you can stare at your closet and nothing really jumps out at you to wear. I have a fall/winter and spring/summer fashion board and these are my go to when I need a quick outfit inspiration.

Fall has definitely arrived here in Indiana, so I thought it might be fun to show you some looks inspired by photos I found on Pinterest then created from items I already have in my closet.

My striped sweater cardigan is from a local boutique but I got it last winter. I’ve linked a similar one at an affordable price point here. Jeans are from American Eagle, black tee is from Target and gray booties are Lucky Brand from DSW. My purse is Kate Spade, which I found on Poshmark, so either hunt for a similar one there, or check out this one I’ve linked for you.

This look was fairly easy to recreate! Again, my olive v-neck is from Target, leggings are the Perfect Fit leggings from Grace & Lace, boots are Steve Madden Troopa that I bought on eBay. Cardigan is a few years old from Dottie Couture, but I highly recommend the Bare Foot Dreams cardigan that you can get at Nordstrom!

This look is perfect for rainy days and I love this waffle knit cardigan from Nordstrom. I believe it’s sold out with the exception of plus sizes, but I’ve linked a couple others that are similar. Instead of a denim chambray shirt, I paired it with a dress and wore flats to complete the look.

Finally, a classic look for work or even dinner! We aren’t allowed to wear ripped jeans to work, so I paired it with solid black denim from Express, an off white v-neck from Grace and Lace and an olive chambray shirt from Magnolia Boutique. Everything is older, but this is an easy outfit to recreate!
