Styling 101: Gold Saffiano

Along with summer comes concerts, vacays, GNO, date nights, and weddings. Its the time of year when we sport our best golden tans, and stock up on sandals, bathing suits, and accessories. I don’t know about you guys, but I have at least 6 shopping carts filled to the max! I absolutely NEED that red, white, and blue bikini and matching head scarf for July 4th! AMIRIGHT?

As nice as it it to have options, it’s also nice having that one favorite accessory you know you can rely on. That accessory that never lets you down. You guys know where I’m going with this, don’t you?

Gold Saffiano. Now, I know what you’re thinking. I’ve never been much of a gold gal myself. Team Silver all the way! However, these teardrops are literally to die for, and I find myself grabbing them at least once a week. They literally match everything, and well, I’m currently riding the gold train trend. Hair up in a messy bun with a black tee and denim shorts? Grab ‘em. Hair down with a romper? Grab em’. I’ve worn them to numerous weddings and parties, just because they are timeless. You literally can’t go wrong with these babies.


One of our favorite bloggers, Sarah Knuth of Welcome to Sarahdise, styled her medium gold saffiano with a messy pony & a chambray shirt, a look that says “I’m put together, but I didn’t try too hard,” and is perfect for a trip on the water. After all, why style your hair when it is going to end up windblown anyway? This look is perfect for day or night, and proves my point that these gorgeous gold willows can go either way.

On the other hand, Amber, one of our favorite girl bosses & owner of Fancy Me Boutique, pairs her gold XLs with a silk cami and hot pink blazer that screams “stylish & sophisticated.” Perfect for the office, but still fun enough for a night out with the girls.

No matter the day or event, I promise, these are a MUST for your collection, so grab a pair here now!

Happy shopping & styling!

Peace, Love, & Leather,


Kicking Off Summer!

Summer Markets are officially in full swing!

We kicked off our exciting & busy season last weekend with Huron’s Lake Front Market, a fantastic open-air marketplace right in our backyard on gorgeous Lake Erie! Over 60 talented vendors, delicious food trucks, gourmet cupcakes, the cutest mobile flower shop you’ve ever seen, a rockin’ Beach Bar featuring our friends from Columbus, Simple Times Mixers, Yoga on the beach, live music, kid’s activities, and the most spectacular, view all rolled up together in one to create the BEST day!


We are constantly blown away by the support of our community, and Saturday was no exception. People from near & far (we met a couple from New York!) flocked to Huron to check out all the Lake Front Market had to offer, including tons of our new releases!

So, what were the hot sellers at the W|E booth this past weekend?

Rattan Dreams

Rattan Dreams

We sold out of these gems in less than an hour! A super cute & lightweight trend for summer, these hand-woven discs come in two styles, and in your choice of silver or gold.

Erie Palm

Heading on Vacay?

If you’re heading on vacay this summer, be sure to include one of our newest acrylic pieces, The Erie Palm, in your carry on. Available in Green or Rainbow, choose from silver or gold hardware to pair with this tropical leaf that is still lightweight so you won’t be weighed down while on the beach or in the pool! We also have a smaller mini version that’s great for kids!

Pastel Graffiti & Blue Watercolors

Pastel Graffiti & Blue Watercolors

What would a W|E booth be without our signature lightweight leather earrings? We introduced several bold+bright colors for summer, including Neon Dreams and Coral Reef, but it seems everyone was going for our two new prints; Pastel Graffiti & Blue Watercolors, which are both printed on our popular cork leather. We have to admit, we’re loving them ourselves, and were spotted all over Nashville in them back in April before we officially released them!


Is it even summer if you don’t wear anything floral? We’ve created & hand-cut this unique & intricate flower pattern to bring you our most favorite Cove yet! Choose from Maple, Cherry, or Walnut Wood, and between a small or large, based on personal preference. For a more stylish look, we’ve paired these with either a silver or gold post.

W|E is TWO!

We are celebrating TWO YEARS!


T-W-O. Can you believe it? Sometimes, I can’t even believe it. What started as an idea; a crazy, random idea in Las Vegas in March of 2017, has become a reality. And here we are. Two years later with a full blown production facility, tons of equipment, an LLC, and a trademark. Wow. It just goes to show that with hard work & crazy ideas, ANYTHING can happen!

We couldn't be more thankful to each and every one of YOU, our loyal fans & supporters. Without you, there would be no W|E. 💗 Thank you to our friends & family who believed in us from the start, and for helping whenever necessary. It truly takes a village.

As a token of our appreciation, we are offering 20% off ALL orders placed from now until Friday, May 17th. Use the promo code ‘2YEARSOFWE’ during checkout. And, don’t forget, if you’re local, use ‘LOCALPICKUP’ as a promo code to avoid shipping charges.


We are looking ahead, and are so excited for what the future holds. Our journey has only just begun!

Peace, Love, & Leather ❤

Meet Olivia

Over here at W|E, we are constantly striving to keep our products fresh & relevant, while staying on trend, and maintaining what we’re known for; lightweight & affordable.

We have been experimenting with the mixing of our lightweight leathers with new, trendy acrylic pieces, and the response has been overwhelming!

We are so excited to introduce one of our new favorites, The Olivia: a rectangular cutout with a gold circular post. Perfect for the upcoming wedding season, or date night, these are sleek, yet sophisticated. Whitewashed Cork is a signature of our’s, and a customer favorite, so we chose this durable material for our first version of this new design. We absolutely love this new shape, and know you will too!

Peace Out, Nashville!

Nashville was a blast, but we are ready to return to Ohio and get back to work!


Thank you all for your patience as we were away for a few days.


We mixed in business+pleasure, and saw so many fashion trends that we can’t wait to explore and share with you.


Here are some of our favorite new releases that are available now! We debuted these at an event on Tuesday in Nashville, and the response was overwhelming!

We have a lot of exciting things in the works, and hope you love it all as much as we do.

We are dying to know: what’s your favorite new release?

Shake Your Shamrock!

Well, here we are! March has arrived, and spring is right around the corner. Anyone else counting down the days to warmer weather and sunshine? I know I am!

Nothing else is more exciting in the month of March (except for spring being SO close!) than St. Patty’s Day! Whether you’re Irish or not, what is more fun than having an excuse to drink green beer? The answer is drinking green beer! So, stock up on some of our favorites for St. Patty’s Day, and make sure you don’t get pinched this year!


We sure have been busy over here! If you missed our Spring Launch, be sure to check out this video:

We have so many gorgeous new arrivals, we couldn’t pick a favorite if we tried! What’s your new favorite style?

February 1st!

Finally! Today marks February 1st. Is it just me, or did the month of January seem to drag on and on and on….??

I saw this quote, and I couldn’t help but share it with you-

Anyone else feeling like they need a re-do of January? A fresh start? A clean slate? I don’t know about you, but I know I sure do! I’m calling a do-over. Happy New Year!

However, I will wait until February 3rd to kick my butt into gear, and start my healthy habits. This weekend is Super Bowl, you know! Besides, I feel it’s always so start something on a Monday. Haha!

Anyway, with the arrival of February 1st, I thought I would share some of my favorite moments from January!


We enjoyed several snow days! Although, I’m not a fan of the cold OR the snow, it sure is fun watching the kids play in it! These negative degree days and -34 wind chills can go though. I will take snow, but when it’s that cold, being outside is unbearable.

Anyone else ready for summer? :-)

We’ve partnered up with some awesome bloggers this past month, and we love seeing how they style their Willows! From state to state, everyone has their own sense of fashion, and it’s so fun seeing our products on some of these big influencers. This is Ziba from Chicago, and she’s the cutest.


Some of you may have seen our post a few days ago about working with New Departure Films. We are excited about this. We’ve known Joey for years, and he even did my wedding video back in 2010! If you’ve seen his work, you know he is simply amazing. We can’t wait to see the finished product, and share it with you!


We are always looking to expand our reach, and this month, we sent shipments to 3 new boutiques: Finer Things in Columbiana, Ohio, Mainstream Boutique, in Fargo, NC, and Attiredmom Boutique, in Mount Lebanon, PA.

For a full list of locations, click here


We celebrated numerous birthdays this month, including Tiffany, Tinley, & sweet Evelyn Jolie, who just turned 1!

It's Wine Time!

Happy Friday!

I don’t know about where you are, but here in Ohio, we’re currently under a Winter Storm Warning. So, this weekend, I plan on sitting back, relaxing, and drinking lots of wine. Bring it on, Winter Storm Harper!

I might even drink wine out of a Pringles’ can! Did you guys hear about that lady? I’m still dying. I’m not sure if I’m more impressed that she actually found a scooter with 3+ hours of charge on it, or at the brilliant use of a Pringle’s can, but either way, this is amazingggggg! And really. Who DOESN’T need wine when they go to Wal-Mart?! 😂 I only hope to be as cool as her one day!

You can read the full article here:

And, speaking of wine… did you hear about the awesome promo we’re running? In honor of Winter Storm Harper, and possibly getting snowed in this weekend, we are offering a FREE pair of our popular Natural Cork Studs to the first 15 orders placed today! This is for TODAY, Friday, January 18th, ONLY, so get your order in!



If you have been wanting to try a pair of our studs, now is the perfect time! These are so neutral and I promise, you will love them. I find myself grabbing a pair of studs when I’m running errands, or if I’m going for a more casual look. Heck, I’m even wearing a pair today, as we wait on Snowmageddon.


As always, stay up to date with us via our social media, and if you haven’t signed up for our E-blasts, what are you waiting for? You never know when we’ll send out an exclusive promo for e-mail subscribers, so GO SIGN UP:

Stay warm friends, and remember, don’t eat the yellow snow!

They’re the perfect neutral that you will constantly find yourself reaching for, and the cork makes them even more durable, so they’re great in a Willow or Olive shape.

Heart Eyes for Valentine's Day

Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is just a little over a month away! Personally, I fully respect a holiday that revolves around wine & chocolate; they’re basically two of my favorite things.

My hubby & I don’t do too much for the so-called “Hallmark Holiday,” but if you’re one that goes all out, we’ve got the perfect gift for you to drop a hint at, or accessory for your date night!

Here are some of our new arrivals-

Valentine’s Box Set

The ultimate gift, complete in a gift box with a ribbon. If you can’t tell your spouse what your ONE favorite pair is, be sure to show ‘em the box!

Rosé Cord

Rosé All Day in these gorgeous pink teardrops! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, spring, or even every day, you’ll love this popular cord leather.


We debuted our Red Sparkle last Valentine’s Day, and it was such a hit, we’re bringing it back, along with a pretty pink shimmer leather!

Go Grey

If you’re a lover of neutral+sparkle, you have to check out the new Graphite leather! We love it in a stud, all the way up through the XL!

Pixie Dust

All you need is faith, trust, & pixie dust! This new gorgeous gold sparkle leather is perfect for special occasions, or if you just want to feel fancy!

Snow Leopard

The perfect animal print for the winter, this light leopard print has a sturdy leather backing so they’re great for everyday wear.

Just another manic Monday!

Asking for a friend… how many times is too many to hit snooze?


I think I hit it about 9 times this morning, leaving me just enough time to toss my hair up in a messy bun, slap on some chapstick, and grab my go-to Willows. Natural cork for the win, because, let’s be honest, they’re going to match anything I throw on in a hurry.

In all seriousness, the Monday after a long Christmas break is every parent’s dream and worst nightmare rolled into one. The kiddos are all out of whack from having no schedule and staying up way past bedtime, the lunches have to be packed (thank God I finally went to Kroger last night!), and my days of sleeping in are no more. On the flip side, getting back into a routine is, hands down, THE best thing ever, and it seemed as if this day would never come. Amiright?

So, today, I’m going to sit back, chug coffee, and thank Sweet Baby Jesus for routines+Willows, because they both make getting ready on a Monday a little less bearable.

So tell me. What’s your favorite go-to accessory?

Happy New Year!

Happy 2019! We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays with their friends & family!


We are fresh off a little hiatus, and are ready to hit the ground running this year! We have so much in store for you, and we can’t wait for you to see it all!

So, you may be asking why this new blog? Honestly, I used to blog when I was a SAHM with Tinley, and its something I’ve missed dearly ever since I stopped. I got to know so many wonderful bloggers in the community, and make some really great connections. It was where I went for mama advice, fashion tips, home interiors inspiration; just life in general. But, baby #2 was born, I went back to work, and then W|E was created, and well, life got crazy. So, blogging took a backseat.

With the new year, and the quick growth we’ve experienced, I figured it was only fitting to get back into it, and put my passion to good use. So, here I am. I can’t promise you a post every day. Heck, I can’t even promise one every week. But, I will post as often as I can, or feel necessary. Sometimes, we may show you some new releases. Or maybe we’ll do a spotlight article featuring one of our vendors. Maybe we’ll post about an upcoming event. And, sometimes, I might talk about nothing at all, because I have a tendency to do that!

We hope this can be an outlet for you, as it is for us. A place where you can get to know us better, and connect with us. We love getting to know our customers. We often refer to so many of you as “friends,” that we have gotten to know over the past year and a half. For those of you that are new to W|E, we look forward to connecting with you, and don’t forget, we are always here if you have a question, issue, or if you just want to say hi!

Peace, Love, & Leather,
