Crisp, Cool, Casual: Moto Jacket + Tank + Skinnies [& Uncommon Goods]

Thursday, January 30, 2014


Hi there!  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, you may be looking for the perfect gift for that S.V.S.  [Remember that?  "Someone very special," duh.]  Seeing as Matt & I have been together for over 6 years now, I sometimes find it difficult to know what to get him (especially for V-Day) since, at this point, we've exchanged gifts many-a-time.  I don't like getting "typical" presents.  I like them to be special/meaningful/somewhat comedic.  That's why I was so psyched to discover Uncommon Goods.  They have a huge array of unique products, and I'd bet my bottom dollar, you could find something for just about anyone on your love list -- even your picky sister-in-law.  Another great thing about Uncommon Goods is that you can feel all warm & fuzzy knowing that you are supporting a company that is environmentally conscious.  And let's be honest here: you really can't put a price on that kind of commitment.
