Beanie Hat from CacheAlaska

Beanie Knit Hat – Premium Wool Blend – designed by CacheAlaska¬ģ

Hats WHAT?? You all probably think I’m nuts talking about hats in August! But I live in Wisconsin and well… lets face it, we have winter weather almost year round, and then you have me who is worse then a 90 year old lady who is cold in 100 degree weather! So its never to early to think warm clothes ūüôā

This is your typical looking beanie hat. I got the light blue, very pretty in color. Almost like a sky blue. They do offer a variety of colors. And a Medium (skull, tighter fit) and One Size (a looser regular fit) which is the one I got. It fit very well. I took a picture of it on with my hair up in a bun and it fit loosely over that.

The hat itself is knit blended. It has a good stretch but doesn’t leave gaps when stretched on your head like some knitted hats. This is very tiny knitted. It is a 50/50 wool and acrylic blend. Don’t let that scare you though, it is super soft and not scratchy at all. I would of never even guessed that there is wool in this hat!

What makes this hat different is if you turn it inside out you will see a soft extra fleece lining around the bottom, I love this part! This extra part keeps your ears really warm and cozy! I’m sure it will be great at keeping wind out too. Like most hats there is also a cute little brown logo on the side of the hat too. The hat itself is great, comfy and no issues.

Now the parts I didn’t like or that I found confusing. This company is a Family owned business centered in Alaska, the listing on Amazon makes it seem like this hat is made in Alaska, this is false. It is DESIGNED in Alaska. It is made in China according to the tag. The description on Amazon¬†also claims it is Machine wash/dry. The tag says Do not tumble dry. Also the extra lining is fleece, even says so in the description, but fleece is not listed as a material on the hat. To me these are pretty important things, now they might not be important to other people but I do feel that to give an honest review these are all things that need to be mentioned.

Overall this hat is a great value for the money, and the pros did outweigh the cons. If you want to check out more info or get a hat before the cold you can find them on amazon here. Or their website

Pink Shoulder Tote Bag from Vera

Vera Tote Shoulder Bag from Vera

If you don’t know me, let me tell you a secret. Ok its not much of a secret since I pretty much tell everyone and anyone. I LOVE pink! And I LOVE Elephants almost as much as I love pink. And if you give me the 2 together I about die with excitement!

I knew I HAD to have this bag. And it doesn’t disappoint! The pattern is beautiful and bold the pink is more of a magenta and is lovely. My pictures don’t do justice, this bag is so much prettier in person. And I love the rope handles, they are a soft yarn feel, this not stiff and straw feeling like some cheap bags. And they are nice and big/long too.

I’m unsure of the fabric of the bag itself but it is a bit textured, thin but still durable and flexible. The inside has a thin lining with a nice little coin pocket. I do wish the liner was a bit thicker as it seems rather thin as you can see right through it. I love the fact that this bag zips close! Most bags have a snap which I am not a fan of. I love zippers!

Besides the pattern, my favorite part is how huge this bag is. You can fit a ton in this. My bag measures approx 21″x 14″ This is great for a day at the beach, or even a weekend trip. You can easily fit a few pairs of clothes in it. There are also a ton of other color/design options available go check them all out here. This is a great value and I will be using mine alot!

Flower Lace Scarf by Tan’s

Women Lightweight Flower Lace Silk Scarf Knit Oblong Cotton Fringe Scarf for Women by Tan’s

SAM_0313.JPG

This scarf is beautiful. I went with the green which is actually more of a pastel lime. Its much brighter then the stock picture and is great for spring and summer! It is a 30% Silk 70% Polyester blend. The scarf is light weight and is semi sheer. The fabric is really soft. I love all the details, there are roses and swirls made of extra fabric that is kind of fraying that gives it character. And the edges are full of detail with a crocheted like pattern with dangling dots.

The scarf itself is a triangle, its very long (mine is approx 68 in) so it wraps around your neck or you could even tie it and tuck it under for a more secured approach. The triangle part in the middle measures approx 14-16 inch long depending on how loose or tight you wrap. I also think it would look lovely worn almost as a shawl. I really didn’t find anything I didn’t like about this scarf. The price and value are great for making you feel like you are wearing something elegant!

Scarf 21

 

MissShorthair has a wonderful selection of scarves, I went with an infinity scarf if your not familiar with the term infinity it means that its a long circle scarf that doesn’t have an end, this type of scarf is usually worn wrapped around your neck twice.

My scarf¬†arrived nicely folded up in a drawstring bag, perfect for storage or gift giving. I went with Sky as my color choice because I don’t own much blue and I thought it would be great for summer. It was a great choice, the colors are perfect, a wonderful patchwork mix of grays, blues, teal and a light greenish/yellow. The colors are so much prettier in person then in the stock photos.

The scarf is 100% polyester, its really soft and lightweight making it a great addition to your year-round wardrobe, because of the plaid multi colors it matches so many of my clothes and is a quick way to dress up a simple tshirt and jeans look. The description states it is 71in but when I measured it I got an approx 66 in, it is nice and fluffy though, the only con I had is that the material is very thin on the edges near stitching and on parts of the edges it is kind of shredded and thinning. So the quality could be a bit better (see last 2 photos)¬†this wasn’t a big problem though, as you can’t see it when you wear it. Other then that I really liked this scarf it was really comfortable to wear!

Bra

As someone who has a rather large chest finding decent bras, or even bras that fit can often be a challenge! So I get pretty excited when I see something in my size. When I went to order this bra I did order my correct size. The listing does note to order your actual size, but tag size will be one cup smaller.

When it arrived it came in a nice plastic bag, and it even came with an extender which I really liked! I didn’t end up needing it though as the bra did fit, if anything it was actually slightly bigger then I’m use to. The bra is very nice, its thin and lightweight, the straps are wide and cushioned on the top so they don’t dig into your shoulders. It was very comfortable to wear, it didn’t even feel like I was wearing a bra. The lace details are cute, an added bow in front with a little rhinestone giving it a nice feminine touch.

This is a wireless bra, so its not going to give you high lifting perkiness again, but it will give you comfort and average support. And sometimes you just need a break from that dang underwire! ūüôā You can find this bra here.¬†
