Spotlight: Nonchalant Mom

After having spent three of my college years at the University of Rhode Island, I can attest, Rhode Island was in need of a cool kids store- and now they have it in the Nonchalant Mom. I first heard about the Nonchalant Mom store in Domino, Conde Nast’s now sadly defunct home living magazine. It is now always on my list of places to stop when I go back for a visit.

For those of you not in Rhode Island (myself included) check out the perfectly edited stock on their website. Here are a few of my favorite picks…

Clockwise from Top Left: Kit + Lili Reversible Hoodie- $70, Benk knit cap- $38, Baby Version Rock Ruffle Bottoms- $28, Nonchalant Mom Vest- $68, Wovenplay Sunshine Stripe Suit- $148, Chickpea Metallic Booties- $40, Makie Floral Dress- $128, Ballerina Slippers- $32

Project: Recycle

It is estimated that up to 35 million Christmas trees are purchased each holiday season. That is a whole lotta trees to just be tossing out to the curb once the season is over! Do your part and head over to to find your closest tree recycler. Many times they will even come pick up- score! Just type in “christmas trees” in the search box and your zip code.

As I decorated our Christmas tree this past weekend, I took notice how the pile of keepsake ornaments is getting very large. I could not sacrifice any ornament’s “christmas destiny”, so they all made it on the jam packed tree. Whenever I give or receive a new ornament, I put the date on the back so I can remember for years to come. Here are a few fun & fancy wool ornaments from Hable Construction.
