Brian and I are headed to Chicago in a few weeks, so naturally I reached out on Instagram and ask you all for the best places to eat, shop and what we needed to see while we are there. I received so many great recommendations! The most common one (besides RPM Italian) was to wear comfortable shoes. Apparently Chicago is a walking city and I need to plan on being on my feet all day. My first thought, I probably need a pair of Golden Goose sneakers, because those will go with everything I pack. It took me 1.5 seconds to pull out of that and turn my search to something more realistic. A cute Golden Goose Dupe. Since then, I’ve been searching retailers and pinning style inspiration like crazy.
It’s here and I am so excited! I’ve been working on a little something behind the scenes and I am thrilled to finally share it with you! Say hello to the newest edition to the Shoplindsey x Micale|Lynn Collaboration! When I worked with Micale|Lynn last Fall, you all received the blush velvet Shoplindsey scrunchie so well! We restocked it multiple times and I loved hearing your feedback! It made the decision to design another Scrunchie with my favorite girls so easy!
I knew I wanted this one to be on trend, but also more of a neutral that you could wear everyday. If you know me well, you know I’m a big fan of animal print (Leopard is my favorite neutral), but I wanted this to be a little different than my norm. The Dalmatian print is so on trend for Fall and will fit right in with your wardrobe!
Huge Thank you the girls at Micale|Lynn for trusting me enough to create a new Scrucnhie for their line! They are the sweetest and the best to work with. Maggie Sheffield for these amazing pictures! Also, Thank you to Beau & Arrow for this gorgeous red dress and kimono jacket! AND the girls at Atherial Beauty for my makeup!

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and I am in full outfit planning mode! We normally play it pretty low key on the Fourth. My sisters and their families are usually in town, so it’s a family day for us! We plan to swim all day, cook out in the evening and settle in to watch fireworks! Lucky for us, our neighborhood puts on the BEST fireworks display, so we just take chairs and blankets out to the driveway and watch from there!
Am I the only one that is on a constant hunt for the perfect white tee? I swear I have 8-10 white tops hanging in my closet, because I am always trying to find the perfect white tee. When Megan and I were working on the June Shoplindsey x Beau & Arrow collection, I knew I wanted to add a good white tee (because what is better than a white tee in the Summer Time?!). I wanted it to be simple and versatile (so you could wear it year round), but I wanted it to be a little different and on brand. I am so in love the white tee we found!
When we were brainstorming for the March Shoplindsey x Beau & Arrow collection, I knew that I wanted to add a Kimono to the line. My Pinterest Board is full of different ways to style them and my online carts all over the internet have a Kimono in each one! I love how by just adding a fun printed kimono you can change the entire style of a look. You can dress it up with a monochromatic base, heels and statement jewelry or throw it on over distressed jeans, a white tee, and your favorite mules.
If you read my post where I shared my goals for 2018, you know that my one of my BIG goals for was starting (again) and sticking to BBG. Keeping to my ‘word’ of Fulfillment, Im happy to report that I am 7 weeks in and still at it! Every week me and one of my besties, Lauren, are working through our 12 week training and keeping each other accountable. Honestly, most days I don’t feel like working out (I’m not one of those people that love it), but I also know I have a friend waiting for my text once it has been completed. Accountability is huge for me to meet this goal… also huge (and this is so silly, but so true) workout clothes. Ugh, Im almost embarrassed to type that, but it’s such a big motivator for me! Why? I’m not sure. Maybe it’s the Stylist in me. I get excited about new clothes and can’t wait to wear them. It truly gives my workout a boost!
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to Style my favorite Springs looks at an event with Kate Spade Woodland Hills. Kate Spade is celebrating this year with a ‘Trip Across America’. Each month they release a new collection, with a new area in mind. The girls at the Woodland Hills store put together the cutest New Orleans Bayou Brunch, complete with a jazz band playing ‘When the Saints Come Marching In’ and King Cake!
First, Happy Valentine’s Day, sweet friends! I hope that your day is filled to the brim with lots of love and happiness! AND I hope you have plans to celebrate! We, do not! What are your big plans for Valentine’s Day? I would love to hear! Im hoping we can sneak a little date night in this weekend, but Im guessing by now most of our favorite restaurants are full of reservations! I may need to sit down and figure that out today! Which brings me to my next question… who plans your date nights? I’m normally the planner. We always talk about what we want to do or where we want to go together, but when it comes to reservations and babysitters, its all me (which Im totally fine with because I am the “I have to know what is happening-do not keep surprises from me- type of planner!). Im just curious to know who plans your date nights?
I’m sitting down to write this post and I’m just completely overwhelmed. Last night we celebrated the launch of the SHOPLINDSEY x Beau&Arrow collection. Friends, Family, Blog readers and sweet Instagram friends; packed the Beau & Arrow store with so much anticipation and excitement for my new line. It was so surreal, so special and SO MUCH FUN!
6 years ago I started a little Instagram account to sell pieces from my closet that I no longer wanted. In 2012, @shoplindsey was created.
I don’t know if you are keeping track, but Valentine’s day is NEXT week! I’m flying in at the last minute to share a few of my favorite Valentine’s Day picks for that man in your life! If you missed my Valentines Day Gift Guide for Her, you can find that here.
