The perfect pair of jeans is a staple piece to any wardrobe and I strongly believe everyone should invest in a really good pair of denim that they absolutely love! The most important part in finding the perfect pair of jeans that work for you is deciding which fit you want! There are SO many; skinny, boyfriend, flare, cropped, high-waisted, the list goes on! No matter which fit I’m wearing, I want them to be stretchy and soft so I can be comfortable and still look amazing! More often than not you can find me in skinny jeans, but I do love a classic pair of boyfriend and flare jeans with a form-fitting top! Flare jeans look amazing with a classic heel or your favorite wedge and make your legs look longer and slimmer (I love these ones I’m wearing!!!). High-waisted denim are my go-to with a cropped top or belted with a tucked in top!

Brand is the next key to look for because each brand has there own take on fit and fabrics. I’ve shared my experience using Trunk Club before (you can learn more about how Trunk Club works on my last post) and I recently reached out to my personal stylist at Trunk Club and ordered a new trunk to hopefully update my jeans for fall. Trunk Club carries ALL of my favorite brands, a few being: Paige, Rag & Bone, Frame and AG. This trunk is probably the prettiest site I’ve seen in a while!!! I’m still deciding on which pieces to keep and which to send back, but I’m tempted to keep it all! A girl can never have too many jeans, right?!

At Home with Framebridge

f4f8 f1 f2f5f7f6 498a7170f10f3f11f13498a7151f12  f14Memories are so important to me! My kids are growing up way too fast and I love looking at old photos to remember them at all of their fun stages! We have a pretty big, empty wall in our bedroom and I always knew I wanted a huge gallery of family photos to go there. So today I’m teaming up with Framebridge to show you the final product and talk about how simple the process was!

Framebridge is an online custom framing service that takes your favorite photos, art, and other physical items, and ships them custom framed straight to your doorstep ready to hang! Design consultations are free with every frame, and I worked closely with their design team to create the perfect arrangement for my grid wall (their gallery wall service is only $99 and you can find more information here).

The first step in choosing pictures for a gallery wall is obviously deciding which pictures to use! I wanted to choose special memories that have meaning, and as I look at the completed gallery wall it’s crazy how vividly I can remember each of these moments! Once you decide which pictures to use, the next step is to choose a theme or color scheme. I love the way black and white photos look and I wanted the gallery wall to be cohesive, so I chose to use black and white photos only. I also wanted the all the frames to match, so I chose the Newport frame.

Framebridge also has a service where you can mail-in physical items like a matchbook, keys, and even textiles to be custom framed to preserve them and make them last forever! We all have those special items that mean so much to us. For me and my family, we sent in Capri’s first pair of ballet shoes (framed in the Irvine Slim frame), the blueprints to our home that Taylor and I designed together (framed in the Bolton frame) and finally an art piece that Capri and Cannon both did together in our art room (framed in the Marin frame)! For a few of the art prints and extra special pieces (like Capri’s ballet shoes), Framebridge recommended a treatment called float mounting. So instead of layering a mat board over the piece they “float” your art above the mat to add sophistication and drama. The look is beautiful and is just $25 extra!

I love how each frame compliments its piece! The options are endless at Framebridge! They have over 40 different styles which made it hard to make a final decision! But I’m in love with how the wall and the custom frames turned out! With the single, custom framed pieces, I chose to layer them on our end tables! Layering art is one of my favorite ways to display artwork, it’s fills up space by adding dimension and it’s a fun way to mix colors and frame sizes. It definitely makes our house feel more like a cozy home!

With the holidays coming up just around the corner, Framebridge makes it super easy to frame anything you love, making for the perfect gift! Use code IVORYLANE15 to get 15% off your first purchase. Offer valid through December 31st!

Wrinkle Free

I am so guilty of looking down at my phone a million times a day! I use my phone to check emails, make calls, text and of course, check social media! I recently learned that the repeated motion of looking down at a phone can give you Tech Neck, causing your neck to sag and get wrinkles. I don’t know about you, but I have the biggest fear of wrinkles, especially on weird places you don’t think of, like my neck!

I started using StriVectin TL Advanced Light Tightening Neck Cream to hydrate my skin, help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and visibly tighten my neck! Apply it to your neck and jawline twice a day (morning and night) and it won’t take long to see the results! I’m careful to only share products that I really love with all of you, and this one is definitely at the top of my list.

What beauty creams do you love to use on your face and neck?!
