Things I Bought and Liked – All Under $40!

There have been a few things I found this fall that have made me feel like have SCORED in the staying-sane-and-keeping-myself-and-small-humans-alive department (#winning). Some I have found in random shopping trips or browsing online, one was a stocking stuffer (ULTA, you hooked my husband up!) and a couple came on recommendation. Here they are in no particular order๐Ÿ˜:

Corduroy Jumper

This cute corduroy mini-jumper has been one of my fav fall purchases from Birds of a Feather (BOAF)! I felt like I was having a mid-life crisis with this purchase because of the length, however I made all the girls at BOAF promise that I didn’t look like I was an old person trying to look young.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ I had an extensive convo with Jill (many many pics and texts) about how to style this and what kinds of places I could wear it. I’ve been so focused on building up my professional wardrobe, that I have sadly forgotten my fun, casual wardrobe. I was able to wear this to a concert for a parents’ night out! I paired it with a black mock turtleneck, black tights and leopard print flats. You could also add booties or a white ribbed shirt underneath.

Ice Roller

Don’t get me started about this. This $12 item has brought me so much joy in the past two weeks. I have been using it first thing when I wake up to “de-puff”. It also is great for headaches. I keep this in a plastic bag in the freezer and have it ready for use. This is so worth it – go get yourself one.

Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer

This little bronzer packs a huge punch for its size. It is super pigmented, so you only have to use a small amount to create a bronze goddess look, use as blush or to contour. This size is great to travel with too!ย 

Firearm Kids’ Clothes

If you are a fan of Mini Boden, you will love Firearm. I’ve found some great dupes for half the cost! Best of all…it’s all available on AMAZON. The fabric is soft and breathable – enough for my two year old.๐Ÿ˜…

Universal Thread Booties

These adorable cut out booties are TARGET dupes for the more pricey Free People ones. They are only $32.99 (and there is a BOGO 50% off going on right now)! They are comfy and very on trend for Fall.

As a fellow (working) mom, I hope some of these ideas help you to stay chic, have $$ in your wallet and generally make life easier!

Xx,

Lauren

Button And Bear Children’s Boutique: Summer Collection Reveal And Giveaway!

I’ll never forget the moment during my first gender-reveal appointment when the ultrasound tech pointed out those three little lines that told us we were having a baby girl. Images of sweet, frilly dresses and huge, pink bows flashed across my mind, and I couldn’t wait to jump off of that table and run to the mall to start shopping, much to my husband’s dismay.
But when I did start shopping (probably within hours of that ultrasound), I was so disappointed in the local selection. There were the normal chain stores, which carried some cute pieces – but cute pieces that everyone else had.ย And my baby girl? Well – she was going to be special.
(Moment of truth: Three and a half years later, she likes to dress herself and usually chooses not-matching, weirdly paired outfits, much to MY dismay.)
My Mom and I had generic discussions about opening our own boutique and offering cute, but also very affordable, fashion options for little girls. And one day in Spring 2016, with the encouragement from my Dad, we jumped right in.
Button & Bear (named after my nicknames for my kids, Charlotte & Jack, respectively), has been a fun little adventure, and we so enjoy choosing pieces we think you and your girls will love! Having a little girl, myself, I know the necessity of having pieces that work for everyday wear, as well as running to the mall or dinner with family, and we choose many of our collections with versatility in mind.
Equally as important to us, is offering products that won’t break your bank (or keep you from going through the Starbuck’s drive-through, because, coffee!). There are certainly occasions to whip out that credit card and splurge (or call Grandma!), but daily life isn’t one of them, and we have kept it our mission to offer boutique fashion at affordable prices.
After all the nitty gritty, though, my Mom and I just love what we do. We have so much fun choosing product, setting up shop at vendor events, and just showing y’all our sweet pieces. We hope you love them as much as we do!
Our current collection, The Garden Party Collection, is on pre-sale through the end of today, and you absolutely don’t want to miss it! It’s the sweetest group of flowery, summer-inspired prints and colors, and we know you and your girls will love them! Be sure to visit our website, because these items won’t be available to purchase after today!
