Graduation Gifts

It's that time of year again! Graduations are approaching fast as our girls push through the last weeks of school. All your hard work is about to pay off! Relaxing in the summer sun and heading off to camp is just around the corner. The best part of graduation, besides accomplishing a major goal, is the gifts! Here are some of our favorite gift ideas for your soon to be grad! 

Graduation Gifts

1. This personalized computer case is perfect for any grad! We can make the case to fit your grads personality so she can love and use her unique case for as long as she wants! 

2. Our TAI earrings are simple yet gorgeous. The classic stud can be worn for any occasion!

3. Who doesn't need more travel bags? This stylish bag with patches is perfect for all your grads upcoming travels and adventures! It can fit anything from make up to snacks and has a zipper so spills are not an issue! 

4. As your grad gets older her jewelry collection only grows! This box is super cute and a great way to organize her necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more. 

5. With summer fast approaching your grad will love this new summer dress. I can be worn casually in the day time and dressed up for a fancier occasion. The simple fit and flare cut is super cute and the ties on the side add a little edginess to the dress. 

Congratulations to all of your graduates. We are so happy for you! 

XOXO,

Frankie

Comer Fashion Show 2017

Hey girls! It's Frankie here!

Giving back to our community is extremely important to Frankies On The Park. That is why I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart if you participated in the 2017 Comer Children's Fashion Show. You deserve a standing ovation and we thank you so much for your help. Together we raised over $121,000. Together we helped fund programs at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital in order to save the lives of children in need of medical attention. During the fashion show it was clear something big was happening. The smiles on the girls walking down the runway were beaming. They were having fun all while know this fun was going to save the lives of many kids. The audience was feeding off of the girls enthusiasm, creating a unique and special energy. I can't wait for the next spring fashion show to be just as exciting and rewarding. Thank you again to everyone who participated and gave back to our community.

XOXO,

Frankie

Mother's Day Gifts

It's mothers day, and you know what that means! Time to get the perfect gift for one of the most important people in you life! Make your mom feel super special with a TAI, personalized initial necklace. 

 

Is your mom a yogi? If so, then help her step up her game with our America and Beyond Fringe Pink Yoga Bag. 

 

There is no better way to style your mom's yoga bag, than with some cute accessories. The Me. N. U monster poof keychain is all the rage, and your mom will be the coolest one out there with it to dazzle up her yoga bag. 

 

If your mom is cool enough to strut the fringe yoga bag with a monster poof keychain, then she is totally going to need a new phone case. You can pick from an assortment of cases from Sonix, but our personal favorite is the roses phone case. 

Let's be honest, as fun as it would be, your mom can't use her yoga bag all the time! Make sure she is still rockin' a cute purse for her day to day errands and work. We think she would LOVE the Me.N.U chain purses - who wouldn't?

Last but not least, everyone needs a cute basic. Your mom will love the Me.N.U women's navy blue open shoulder top. It is perfect for a trip to yoga, or a casual spring day.

me.n.u Spring and Summer Trends

Hey Frankie Girls!

Off-the shoulder tops are the latest spring/summer trend and nothing is more in right now than pompoms and aztec print. So, what better way to rock them all together than with the me.n u. peasant aztec top! Because it is finally spring, white is the new black and that means it's time to stock up on your favorite lace-trimmed me.n.u white denim shorts to match your aztec off-the-shoulder top. Even though spring is already here, and summer isn't too far away, you still need something to keep you warm on cool nights. The most fashionable way a Frankie's girl stays warm is with her me.n.u skull olive jacket. Perfect for any casual occasion, this jacket is the way to go to keep you stylish and warm on spring and summer evenings. 

A Frankie's girl never goes anywhere without accessories! If you read last weeks blog, you know that pompoms with tassels are so stylish, and the me.n.u tassel fringe cross body bag is one of the hottest trending accessories! Last, but certainly not least, bling is essential. Dress up any outfit with the me.n.u gold crystal cuff. Now you are decked out and set to go!

How to Style Your Bunk

Hey Campers!

Camp is just around the bend and you know what that means! Campfires, color war, s'mores, and beach parties. With all of  this fun your gonna need a cozy bunk to come home to at night. Here is how the stylish Frankie's girl would design her bunk:

First things first, you want to make your bed as cozy as possible and this cannot be achieved without iscream embroidered patch comforter. Every Frankie's girl love to accessorize, so the matching iscream embroidered pillow case and iscream sandwich cookie pillow are a must. Once she has completed her dream bed, the Frankie's girl would definitely move on to her shoes. There is no better way to organize your shoes than with the confetti and friends donut shoe bag. It's lovely shade of blue matches perfectly with your comforter and pillowcase, and it hangs on your bed. Lastly, but definitely not least, you simply cannot keep all of your color war merch and accessories organized without the confetti and friends emoji under bed storage bag. 

And that, ladies, is how it's done!

The Best Summer Reads

Hi Frankie’s Crew!!

I know we are a little late to the partay, but it is OFFICIALLY summer- and it’s never too late to celebrate that right? Summer brings the opportunity to hang out with friends that we don’t get to see often during the school year, do activities and hobbies that only summer weather permits, and best of all- no homework to hold us back. Some of us jet off to camp for weeks, while others remain at home and get to soak up some hometown sun. But no matter where you go, the free time of summer should be used by all to crack open a new book. While we don’t exactly sell books, we still love a good book. We asked our resident reading expert, Nina, to curate a list of her fave summer reads. So just in case you find yourself in a rut, we have got you covered! 

Feel free to comment with any of your favorite summer book suggestions!!

Nina’s Summer Picks:

1)      And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie

This intense mystery in which several people are invited to an island, but one by one each of them disappear will have you on the edge of your beach towel all summer long… 

2)      Red KayakPriscilla Cummings

This novel tracks a horrible kayak accident in which there was a death of a little boy. Brady, the main character soon discovers that he may have played a bigger role in the accident than he thought. In fact, readers will wonder- was it really an accident?

 3)      The OutsidersS.E. Hinton

This book may be the most relatable out of all the books on this list. We enter the high school setting as we follow the lives of two very different social groups that struggle to get along, and deal with ups and downs along their high school experience. Tragedy, heartbreak, friendship, and growing up are all covered in this classic novel. 

4)      The Hunger Games TrilogySuzanne Collins

 We’ve all heard of The Hunger Games at this point, it is the ultimate beloved series of our generation. Buuuuut, if you haven’t gotten a chance to get into yet, or have only seen the movies- it’s time to read up! This series takes place in a fictional country with very odd traditions, including an annual televised fight for life, in which 24 people are selected to kill each other. Readers will follow Katniss Everdeen (otherwise known as Jennifer Lawrence) as she journeys for her life. An undeniable summer page-turner.                                                                                                           

Now, enough reading on the screen, time to crack open a book!!

XO,

Frankie
