Feeling Lucky this Saint Patrick’s Day

Friday-march-17

Hello there! It’s crazy to think that we are already half way through the month of March. This year seems to be flying by. Saint Patrick’s day is here and it’s important to be prepared so you don’t get pinched! Different shades of green are pouring into our store this season and we would love to share with you how to wear them.

For a more casual look we have paired together a fun pair of Green Skinny Cargo pants that are just perfect for the holiday! With a simple white off the shoulder top, the jeans will be sure to give you a pop of green showing your Saint Patrick’s Day spirit.

Another one of our favorite green tops is the Muse Key Hole Tie Top by Blue Life. It’s rich color really stands out with the Omaha Necklace. A simple pair of dark wash jeans and our Neptune sandals really bring this outfit all together.

If you’re planning on having a date night this holiday, the Castilla Ruffle Dress is the perfect combination of fun and sophisticated. This dress can be worn simply on its own or with a pair of skinnies. Throw on our new olive green Party Up Suede heel and the Plum Teardrop Druse Necklace to really complete the look.

We hope you have a wonderful and safe Saint Patrick’s Day!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Happy almost February! It’s crazy how fast January has flown by. With that being said, it is never too early to start preparing for the next holiday. Valentine’s Day is an important day to show your love and affection towards your special ones. We have put together some cute and special gift ideas that can help you find the perfect presents to give to your loved ones.

When I think of Valentine’s Day I immediately think of the color pink. Pink is such a fun and girly color, so having any excuse to rock some pink accessories I will take the first chance I get! This Metallic Pink Cross Body bag is perfect for adding some color to any outfit. Pair it with the Eclipse Pink sunglasses and you will be sure to turn some heads! Tie it all together with the Sunset Clouds necklace which has just a hint of pink. Spray on our ever so delicious Honeycomb Fragrance for the perfect Valentine’s Day attire.

For another great gift idea, I have paired together the hand painted All My Love Sign with some cute little items like the Pink Tissue Ruffle Slip, some sweet little hair ties, some delicious smelling Field and Flowers shower gel and a sweet little striped tray that is perfect for putting jewelry on like the GF Magenta Agate Necklace.

For some red accessories we have the Hunter Carmine flannel that is super comfy and soft, it really pops with the Red Camden Buckle Wristlet and the Dixi Orange glasses. The Love Sign is such a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day and you can never go wrong with the Golden Coast Double Wick Candle.

One of my favorite purses that we have in the store is the Red Oakley Cross Body Fringe purse by Fredd and Basha. Another great product that we carry is the Willow and Water Bubble Bath, which smells absolutely amazing. The Love You More sign is also perfect for the occasion!

Hopefully this was able to spark some ideas for the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift! Happy Saturday.

PB&J Reunion-Mendocino

img_0088So very Thankful for these amazing women!

7 years ago I started PB&J Boutique and with the help of these women (& some not photographed-next year ladies) it has become so much more to me than I could have ever imagined. On this day as we reflect on what we are thankful for, I have to say that I have had the absolute pleasure of working along side some pretty incredible women who have shown me true friendship and I’m so incredibly grateful that each of them are such a big part of my life. They have taught me that there are women in this world that want other women to succeed and that silly girl drama does not need to exist in the work place or in relationships for that matter. When we get together we laugh until our cheeks hurt, cry together and always know that no matter what direction life takes us that we always will be there for one another. We always say we are a little family and it is so very true. This amazing group of ladies are without a doubt some of the most honest, kind, fun and smart precious souls I know. I am so beyond grateful for the friendships each and every one of them have shown me. I love you ladies so much and thank you for bringing so much joy to our PB&J Fam!

Here is a little peak into our girls trip to Mendocino. We had an amazing stay at one of the most charming towns on this planet. For those of you who haven’t been, you need to! Mendocino is a place of pure beauty where you can get out doors and simply relax.

img_0310

The first night we arrived we were lucky enough to make it in to town by sunset! We all took a stroll through Headlands State Park and the view was just phenomenal. The crisp fresh air in Mendocino is just one of a kind paired with the relaxing sounds of the waves.

img_0313

During our weekend trip we stayed in a beautiful cottage that had an ocean front view. Every morning waking up to the sun rise over the ocean was so peaceful and relaxing.

img_0306

We also had a few little deer friends that liked to watch the view with us.

img_0304

Another fun part about Mendocino is all of the cute little shops that they have down town. We spent an entire day shopping our little hearts out. To top our afternoon off we ate lunch at a cute little place called Flow Restaurant and Lounge. The view from here was just breathtaking and the food was super yummy!

img_0312

We made sure to make it back to our cozy cottage just in time for the sunset on Saturday evening. The lighting was just perfect for photo’s. After a long day of shopping, relaxing and watching the sunset on the coast was just what we needed.

img_0321

img_0303

We all shared so many giggles, reminisced a bit and made so many new memories.

With a view like that in our backyard we never wanted the weekend to end. Looking forward to our next reunion already!

Cheers!

Posh by Kat had a very unique take on the Lilac Dreams Tunic! Throughout her blog post she makes it clear that she isn’t going to limit herself to maternity clothes! Being 35 weeks pregnant,  and looking beautiful we might add, she is finding it hard to find fashionable clothing that fit. On her  blog  she has linked “More Maternity-friendly picks” from PB&J.

Festival Waves & Wanderlust

Boho Bombshell

Festival Season is upon us and for those of you off to Coachella enjoy! I do have to say the ladies of PB&J are a little jealous to not be there this year, but are hearts are with all you music junkies. We have put together some easy boho looks that we hope will inspire the inner festival gypsy in each of you.

Good Bye Blue Skies Necklace/Vanessa Mooney Bangles/Ring Assortment

Ladies tend to go for a carefree hair style while attending Coachella. We thought why not put some simple curls in your hair and complete the look with a flower crown. Super easy and when the day gets a little too hot its a breeze to whip up into a pony tail to cool things down and still look cute.

pbj4-8-2016-12 copyThis dress by Blue Life is light weight to keep you dancing the day away. The handkerchief hemline and lace up back are simple little details that make this tank dress a standout.

Desert Dancer Dress by Blue Life

Another great hairstyle that is simple to do is to add tiny braids throughout your hair. To get the waves, add a little mousse to your hair and let it dry slightly. Once your hair starts to dry divide into small sections and twist your hair. It should stay in place while you continue your morning. Once it is mostly dry you can untwist your locks for an amazing wave with no hot iron tools needed and it looks amazing. If your hair is too heavy to hold the twists you can also put it into small braids instead to achieve the wavy look. pbj4-8-2016-19 copy

This fun little blouse is adorned with tiny little mirrors and belled out sleeves. The perfect top for those warm desert days.

Hot Spot Highlight: SUR

If you are a fan of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or the spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules, then you are probably familiar with the popular restaurant, Sur. Nestled in the heart of West Hollywood, this ultra chic place is sure to provide you with plenty of entertainment.

IMG_1244 IMG_1275

I was lucky enough to be able to dine at Sur last Friday night for my friends’ birthdays, and as a huge fan of Vanderpump Rules, I was not disappointed. Shades of purple and pink light lit up the entire restaurant, creating an ambiance that could only be designed by Lisa Vanderpump herself. If you find yourself dining at Sur, I highly suggest sitting on the back patio. It was nice to have fresh air, but the tree cover made the patio so comfortable, especially with all of the twinkling lights woven through the branches.

IMG_1249
IMG_1251

Flowers were all over the bars and tables, which made the entire restaurant smell so heavenly!

IMG_1250When one is dining at Sur, it is only necessary to order a bottle of Lisa Vanderpump’s LVP Pink Sangria. Served over ice with fresh raspberries, LVP sangria was absolute perfection.

IMG_1252

IMG_1257

IMG_1256

For dinner, I chose a chopped arugula salad topped with tomatoes, olives, mozzarella cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette. This was the perfect choice to accompany my sangria and dessert. As if the sangria wasn’t sweet enough, we just had to order dessert! Because we were celebrating two birthdays for the twins Mimi and Laura, they got a very special chocolate cake. I also highly recommend the “Lemonchamp,” a tasty scoop of lemon sorbet ice cream floating in some bubbly. What could be better!

IMG_1262 IMG_1265

After dinner, we took a little stroll around the lively West Hollywood, and we ran into Pump! The other restaurant, also designed by Lisa, was just around the corner from Sur. Although we were not able to dine there, Pump also looked like the perfect place to relax and enjoy the evening.

IMG_1277 IMG_1276

The overall experience at Sur was amazing, but one of the most difficult things about that night was trying to figure out what to wear. If you’re looking for that perfect going out outfit, here are some of my favorites from PB&J Boutique:
