One for the Money

There’s nothing better than that throw-it-on-and-go piece; it’s effortless, minimal and requires little thinking, which is great for those late nights that meet early mornings. Sometimes that minimal vibe is exactly what I need. But most of the time, I’m looking for a little something more. That’s the best part about that perfect jumpsuit – it can be just what you want it to. Keep it simple or add layers and accessories to get that stand-out style. Nothing beats versatility when you’re a fashion addict.

Yesterday, I had an entire day off; a rare occurrence for me recently. And I enjoyed every second of it with some lazy-meets-chic street style, errands, and fun with friends. I think I picked out the three comfiest pieces in my closet, paired them together, and was beyond fashion satisfied: sweaterish crop top, silky, peg pants, and the ever-popular Birkenstock. Top it all off with my go-to denim jacket, a statement-making arm cuff, and pretty rings and things. I was beyond ready for a night of walking through the Orange International Street Fair beer in hand and birks on feet.

I’m secretly excited for fall to start; although I’m always cold, I’m more than ready to bust out the cozy clothes buried in the back of my closet. I miss my leather pants and the ability to layer an outfit to sheer perfection. After a quintessential trip to Forever 21, I found myself yearning to wear my newest addition to my closet: a quilted, oversized menswear-inspired blazer. Like many of my other love affairs with my attire, it was love at first site; I just had to have it. It’s a piece I’d been looking for for quite some time and at such a perfect price point how could I not. I brought it home, hung it up, and started to realized that it was hot, hot, hot. So I challenged myself and styled this coat for a look I would say is summer approved. Paired with an essential white tee and my thrifted shorts, it was the perfect balance and will transition very nicely into the cooler months.

Panama and Prints in Palm Springs

A wide-brim, panama hat and silky, Hawaiian printed dress seemed like the perfect combination for a little getaway to Palm Springs. And functional, surprisingly. The brim of the hat shades my face from the suns harsh rays while the dresses thin material is cool enough for the scorching, desert heat. Paired with my new Forever 21 booties (yes, Forever. They just look so much more designer than that), it’s the perfect outfit for a night under the stars and California palm trees.

Bermudas: not just for your mom

I’ll never forget shopping, at age 12, with my mom; the struggle was real. It was a constant battle between her trying to dress me up like I was a 40-year-old teacher at stores like J Jill and Ann Taylor (which I would gladly shop at today) and me wanting to just look like all my friends and dress like I belonged in a Limited Too catalogue (judge me). Needless to say, she had the money, and I always ended up looking like I belong at the front of the classroom. Fast forward 12 years and irony ensues; I wear my mom jeans with pride and find myself loving the things I once cried to get away from. Something else my mom was always putting me in that I hated – bermudas. She was looking for something a bit more conservative than cut-offs and hey, today I get it. My awkward 12-year-old self, on the other hand, never will. Today, I’m embracing them. Yes, they can be as awkward as a quiet elevator ride to the 29th floor but dress them just right and it’s more like an elevator filled with your friends in a night out in Vegas. Awesome. Get funky in some long shorts with a cool crop top, booties, and fresh jewelry to match.

Minimal Mix

Although we’re huge fans of mixing prints, we understand that this trend can be a bit intimidating. It starts with not know where to start. Do these compliment each other? Are the color schemes right? Then it might turn into worrying about the result of these mixed patterns. Do I really want to draw this much attention? Is this an appropriate time to wear this? And the battle within your head ensues in full force. If you’re not looking to have a fight with yourself today but still want to try this trend that’s flying off the shelves, then maybe we’ve hit in on the hit for you.  Rather than mixing a leopard print blouse with some stripped pants or an acid-wash skirt, why not hang low and mix that Print of your shoes with whatever else is patterned and pretty.

Yesterday was a relaxing, yet productive day working on all our new, handmade jewelry! Half way through, we realized we were dressed and ready for yet another blog post. We’re obsessing over overalls, and we wouldn’t mind a few more pairs in various washes and colors galore. Wether or not their your cup of tee, you’ll still have to admit that they look pretty great paired alongside our new armlet (arm-bracelet, obviously). This is just one of many of our new pieces for our Fall jewelry collection! Stay tuned for more sneak peaks and the big debut coming soon.

Your bathing suit isn’t just for splashing around in

Swim suits are great. But honestly, We fall in love with those one-of-a-kind, expensive ones and get sad when they’re worn only a few times in the summer months. So, we had a revelation. Why? They’re so pretty they deserve more than just being shown off pool side for a couple hours. The alternative to this dilemma? With a little subtraction here and addition there, we’ve created 4 outfits using swimwear as oh so much more than just that.

Anything but Basic

There’s something about statement, bold prints that I just can’t get away from. I’m constantly thinking ‘buy more basics’ when shopping online or skipping through the mall. But I can’t help myself; I guess I’m just not a basic bitch. I love mixing prints and layering pieces over pieces over pieces. I love things like a printed, shift dress, like this one from Soft Joie. It’s perfect enough to stand alone. But ‘one is the loneliest number,’ so why wear one piece of clothing when you could wear two or three or four. If I’m going to go basic, it still has to have pizazz. I’m thinking a monochromatic look with bold shapes or an overdose of accessories or those layers I mentioned before.
