Stinkin’ adorable, right?! What an absolute gem of a company! If you love what you just saw, you are going to loooove the fun P.I.G. interior print that HEF selected, and custom designed for this amazing collab + giveaway!! In addition to HEF’s custom clutch, the giveaway will include several bars from Nashville-based chocolatier geniuses, Olive and Sinclair, a sweet, copper necklace from SmithWiley, a candle from Jo Malone, and a fun set of Pop in Greetings! Follow Pop in Greetings on Instagram for details on how to enter their giveaway, today! The winner will be announced on Mother’s Day (this Sunday).

So, in honor of Mother’s Day weekend, I paired the custom, orange-hued HEF clutch with a very laid back, “lakeside” look – a look I very much plan to enjoy wearing this weekend (crossing my fingers it’s not overcast and rainy like it was when I shot this!). Now, I don’t know about you, but the best way for my fam to show deep appreciation for me, is to just let me RELAX. Spending the day at the lake down the road from us has become a Mother’s Day tradition – it’s my happy place! No makeup, no hair-fussing, just taking a wooded walk with my Lovies, lounging on the small, quiet beach, and eating the best burgers and fries around from the nearby lodge is what I call a perfect Mother’s Day. I heart simplicity. :)
