Valentines Day Gift Ideas for yo’ Man

Valentines Day 2016 Gift Ideas For Him

Ok lady friends – Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Whatchya gettin’ for that man friend of yours? Here are some ideas! Shameless plug: that sexy as death leather satchel in the pic above is from the company of a friend of mine, Kodiak Leather (check it out!). We got it in the mail this week, and you guys – it is even more beautiful in person than it is in pics. It’s also the perfect size (as per my husband). It’s also on sale for $99 (originally $150). My husband has a couple other leather satchel work bags, and $99 (or even $150) is honestly is a craaaaay price for a genuine leather bag (the others Chase has retailed for over $400. Yikes). And in my humble opinion, every grown man needs a sexy, high quality work bag. If your man doesn’t have one yet, it’s time. Get him one! Get him this one! (or this one or this one, all on sale). Ok I’ll shut it now.

Happy Tuesday! So let’s get right down to it: I want to talk about faux leather leggings. Are you mad? K good.

So I thought I would dedicate today’s post to it. So with no further adieu, here are the top three reasons to wear faux leather leggings:

How to Nail Low-Key Style

Target-Low-Key-8

Ok let’s be serious you guys: We all want to look good, but we’re also all Busy Bettys with a lot more to worry about and tend to than just those things related to our appearance. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not an unusual phenomenon for me to wake up and feel like getting dressed in anything besides pajamas is going to be a feat for the day, let alone pulling something together that looks adorable. Leggings and Ugg boots, anyone? Husband’s T-shirt anyone? Yeah, I think we’ve all been there. That being said, it’s undeniable that I notice a big difference in how I feel when I put in a little more effort. So what’s the trick? I think it’s all about learning how to pull off low-key style. In other words, looking like you tried without actually having put in too much effort or time. I’m definitely still navigating these waters myself, but I’ve teamed up with Target to share some ideas, tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way for how to do low maintenance while still looking chic!
