Retail Therapy and a Giveaway!

The giveaway is now closed.

This post is sponsored by Hy-Vee.

Lately, it seems my work/life balance, integration, sanity, or whatever you want to call it, was off. I had a couple events at work, big things coming up with the CGL, and wanting to be super present as a mom and wife at home. So, I was really needing a little pampering. But I usually devote any pampering time to working out an hour or two each weekend.

Recently though, I've been trying to take a few extra minutes while grocery shopping at our local Hy-Vee to stroll the aisles and look at all the pretty packages and pick out something new to cook. A little retail therapy. Looking at pretty things is so relaxing, right? Well, I was really excited when Hy-Vee reached out and asked me to take a look at their new F&F line of clothes.

Wait, Hy-Vee has clothes?! That's exactly right. And they are pretty darn cute! F&F is a British-inspired international fashion label that offers a broad range of affordable fashion for women, men and children. They are expanding to the US with stores located right inside Hy-Vee. 

So my mom, the little man, and I headed out to Hy-Vee to do a little shopping and explore F&F. We grabbed coffee and began our retail therapy!

The F&F line has something for everyone - women, men, and kiddos. Well, I found a great white blouse with black polka dots that is work friendly. I'm still sticking to a capsule wardrobe of mostly black, grey, navy, and garnet. This piece is another great option for winter!

I started our shopping thinking I'd pick up a few pieces I could use for work, but I completely overestimated my willpower against adorable children's clothes. 

Declan has been growing like a weed lately and is in desperate need of new clothes. Luckily, Hy-Vee has super cute clothes for kiddos.

The pocket square!

I fell in love with this dinosaur hoodie. What is it about dinosaurs for little ones?! I just can't get enough. Declan loves the hoodie and matching pants, too.

Too much. Also, I'm pretty sure every photo I try to take of this moving monster will be blurry from here on out.

I also snagged a few pairs of sweatpants, a pair of khaki pants with - wait for it - SUSPENDERS, and the cutest sweater that I'm hoping he won't grow out of before his birthday in March. 

The line F&F line definitely has a little bit of a European flair which makes sense since that's where the line originated. The styles are fresh and on trend.

You guys really have to check it out. And to entice you a little more, we're doing a GIVEAWAYSimply comment below with something you are looking forward to this week to enter to win a $100 gift card to Hy-Vee. Winner* will be announced Thursday morning.

Have a great week!

  1. I had no idea HyVee had fun! This week I am looking forward to starting some early (for me) Christmas shopping for family, friends, and coworkers!

  2. I am looking forward to a few more days of unseasonable warm weather to enjoy time outside with the kiddos after work!
