I Adore The Store: Cusp - www.iadorewhatilove.com

If there ever was a store that I have completely adored since the day it opened, it would be Cusp (more formally known as Cusp by Neiman Marcus).  And if you know me well, you know that I enjoy the act of giving gifts more than anything else in the world… but when it comes to others buying presents for me – welp, the only thing that I ever really ask for is a gift card.  More specifically, a gift card to one of my absolute favorite stores on the planet. Yep, you guessed it: Cusp.

Top Row: | 1 | 2 | 3 |  Middle Row: | 1* | 2 | 3 |  Bottom Row: | 1 | 2 | 3* |

**Sorry I’m not sorry for including not one, but TWO bathing suits in this spread.  I’m going to AZ for my spring break in a month and have major pool time on my mind   =)

And since I always seem to find the most expensive items from this really chic store (unintentionally, of course), it’s only fitting that I would want a gift card to there!  Everything Cusp has on it’s racks is not only incredibly trendy, stylish, and contemporary, but it’s also unique, sassy, sexy, and classy – all at the same time.  With that being said, it’s not cheap, mainly because of the amazing designers that they sell, but the purchases are well worth every penny because whatever you buy, you will love, adore and keep as a staple in your closet forever.

So I’ve picked out a few of my most-beloved items from Cusp – but please, don’t be scared! None of them are a million dollars. I promise!  In fact, most are very wallet friendly.  But if you don’t believe me, just see for yourself above!

 

Oh and one more thing: I can’t believe I’m about to admit this out loud but at times I’ll deliberately choose to walk right past it’s doors knowing that if I go inside, I’m bound to find something that I love, try it on, and leave with it all within in a matter of minutes.  It’s dangerous!  At the same time, that’s when you know that all the clothes, accessories, shoes, bags, and trinkets that Cusp carries are seriously just that cute.

Now, I’d love to know which of the pieces above that you love too…
leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!!

{FYI: I completely realize that I sound like a walking paid-advertisement for this store but I swear all opinions are my own and these stores don’t even know I exist.  Also, every post with the title “I Adore The Store” will primarily focus on cute pieces that I’m currently obsessing over at the particular store that I’m showcasing.  And you’ll invariably see a mix of high and low cost items because that’s just how I roll}

.
Literally for the past 2 years, 3 months, and 5 days {‼️} we haven't left each other's sides... And he loves me. A LOT.  Maybe as much as I love him. So I think we both felt it. He did great at drop-off but these are the moments as a mom you wish you could just skip! At least I do. Because while proud doesn't even begin to describe the feeling I had this morning, it was also scary and sad and brought out all the emotions! 🥰 Parenting is hard!
.
So here's to all the moms out there who are in the same boat as me today or in the coming weeks. WE GOT THIS 🙏🏼😘 Xox
