Unruly Things / Show Me Your Stack :: Kkylie Nakao, Tarin Thomas

I’m excited to share a new stack feature today – it’s been awhile! isn’t this stack from Kylie Nakao just gorgeous!? Kylie is the designer and founder behind Tarin Thomas, a lovely jewelry brand out of New York. I first discovered Kylie’s rings via one of my favorites, Vuela Boutique, and fell in love. here’s what Kylie has to say about her stack…

I love to stack by layering various stone and metal combos, I think you can create so much texture with various stone shapes and sizes. many of my designs are open bands, I love the feel of the open space and make stacking that much more exciting. this stack is a mix of silver and rosegold stacks, with black diamonds, white diamonds & cognac diamonds.

thanks Kylie! do you or someone you know have an amazing stack that you’d like to share? submit photos of your ring adorned fingers to hello {at} unruly-things {dot} com.

since we get outside almost everyday over the summer, we’re big fans of tees that are not only soft and comfy but stylish and cool as well. I’ve always been a big fan of the tees from Winter Water Factory, so when they sent over Wolf {and baby brother!!} a few things to test out, we were pretty excited. Wolf has a soft spot for airplanes so I picked out this rad plane tee for him. he likes it so much, he would wear it every day if I let him!

Winter Water Factory is known for their fun graphic tees. plus, they’re all made in the USA and organic – bonus. have a look at their shop to see more goodies. warning: the baby stuff is insanely cute!!!

bite + sip : summer mocktails

bite + sip : summer mocktails | unruly things

summertime is that time of year that I especially enjoy an afternoon cocktail on the deck or an ice cold beer in the hammock. since I’m pregnant, I’ve been whipping up some fancy mocktails in lieu of an alcoholic drink and I’ve made some pretty delicious ones. my go-to these days simply fizzy water with sliced limes and oranges, but these have caught my eye.

do you have any favorite non-alcoholic summer sippers? I’d love to know.

little things : goodkid snack bars

little things : goodkid snack bars | unruly things

one thing we really focus on for Wolf is good nutrition, which means limiting his sugar intake while feeding him yummy stuff. when I first heard about GoodKid Foods delicious, low-sugar snack bars produced locally in Bend, Oregon, I was super intrigued! the bars have only 5 or 6 grams of sugar, depending on the flavor. plus, the branding is way cute, right?!

the bars are offered in three yummy, kid-friendly flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Oatmeal Raisin and Lemon Blueberry. Wolf and I tested out their Apple Cinnamon bar this morning and I have to say – I was pretty excited about it. and so was he! he begged me for more. the bars are packed with organic fruit, tons of omega-3′s, and antioxidants like acai, pomegranate, echinacea, choline, vitamin C, and zinc. since Wolf has a peanut allergy, I was thrilled to learn that they are peanut free and only use almond butter in their bars.

GoodKid Foods are on the home stretch of their Kickstarter campaign and I’m super excited to see these guys get up and running. read more about their process here and to help fund them, click here. the pledge rewards are truly in your favor as you’ll be getting healthy, low sugar snack bars for your kiddos, and heck – for you too! I’m not sure about you, but it’s especially exciting when I know your kiddos are snacking on something healthy – mom win!

for the dudes : pacific standard bags

for the dudes : pacific standard bags | unruly things

always a fan of the goods coming from Bridge & Burn, it’s no surprise that I found myself wishlisting their newest collection of waxed cotton bags – not only for me, but for my husband too. made in collaboration with Clinton Street Bag Company {more fun stuff on them later!} and handcrafted in the Pacific Northwest.

made of 10oz waterproof waxed canvas with heavy twill reinforced bottoms, super sturdy brass hardware, rain-flaps to keep the PNW weather at bay, the bags are meant to stand up to all the demands of daily life. the backpack has exterior access to the padded laptop sleeve, and the duffle has a snap down, extra-large opening to the main compartment that offers easy access while you pack. they’d be perfect for the dude in your life, plus there’s a tote and a ladies bag, too!
