Loving Now // Frayed Jeans

Guys, it’s finally cooled down enough for jeans, in fact it’s been *perfect* jean weather recently! Our newest jean love is frayed bottom jeans. Have you been seeing them around? We’re seeing them in stores all over the place (Loft, Urban, Nordstrom, Madewell) but did you know they’re pretty easy to make on your own?! Christa chopped a pair of jeans that were a bit too long recently and loves the look! Check out ways to style our new favorite trend…

Magical Pink Wall

Happy hump day, friends! We’re trying to brighten up this gloomy day with fun walls! If you’re in the Hartford area, you should check out these cheery murals (on the side of the road on Pope Park Highway) – there are green, purple and blue ones too!

With the weather finally cooling down, it was the perfect day to break out the clogs and a long cozy sweater. To be honest, this outfit is pretty much my uniform in the fall! I love classic neutrals with some gold jewelry and a fun shoe.

I was most excited about my DIY necklace though! I grabbed some thin leather from Michaels and tied myself a little chocker. Thinking about doing a DIY post with a couple variations of what you can do with the leather strips! Stay tuned!

Love Want Need // Bomber Jackets & Headphones

unspecified


With those chilly autumn days on the horizon, we’ve been ogling the fall layers and colors we’re anticipating wearing once the crazy New England humidity ends. We love the street-style look of a bomber jacket with some chunky headphones — the combo just makes us want to strut down the sidewalk looking fly as a mofo, listening to the BeeGees and pretending that we’re cooler than we actually are 🙂


Love
Sony Headphones // H&M Bomber

Want
Taylor Frends Headphones // River Island Satin Bomber

Need 
Yenona Wireless Headphones // Chloe & Katie Printed Bomber


Loving Now // Culottes

Happy hump day, loves! So, I know my dad is cringing right now (he’s not a fan of culottes…), but man are we crushing hard. They’re just so easy breezy! As you’ll see from our round up – you can wear them with t-shirts, button downs, sneakers, wedges, heels – they’re unbelievably versatile, and we love versatile! Are you guys back on the culotte train? Another 70’s trend rolling through making a statement. 🙌

Love, Want, Need // Beach Coverups and Speakers

lovewantneed_beachcoverupsandspeakers


With all of this warm weather and sunny days, we can’t help but dream about having our feet in the sand while we sit in our cubes. We’re loving ourselves some vintage inspired kaftan-style beach coverups & cutesy embroidered tops to throw on once you’ve had a little too much Vitamin D. And of course no beach day is complete without an easy-to-carry speaker. Seriously, grab yourself one if you don’t have on already, they make all outdoor gatherings that much better!


Love: H&M Dress // RFI6 Bluetooth Speaker

Want: Topshop Dress // SunnyLife Retro Sounds Speaker & Radio

Need: Zara Embroidered Dress // GSPON Speaker


Summer Style ’16 // Baggu

Summer calls for bags. You need a farmers’ market bag, a beach bag, an overnight bag, a going out bag, a work bag, a gym bag, a weekender bag…(ok ok, you get the point). And we should know, we’re self-proclaimed bag ladies and have no shame in that! Baggu has all of the bags right now, and we’re thinking we’d like one of each, plz!

Which is your favorite style or pattern?

Copy Cat

gm_copycat_June16

Summer is officially here, people! We’ve had some ups and downs with the weather, but I think we’re finally feelin the heat. With this summer weather upon us, we’re starting to shape up our summer wardrobe. We’re always looking to other stylish bloggers for their warm weather looks (one of our favorite pinterest boards is our summer style board), and the ladies over at A Piece of Toast know how to style summer heat far better than us (Texas heat is not joke!). We’re all about rocking a good bandana and jean jacket, and this unique layered look is perfect for the indoor/outdoor struggles of the office. Happy copying 🙂


Our take:
Aviators
Bandana
A-Line Dress
Rose Gold Sandals
Pink Cross-Body Purse

Bangles

Loving Now // Pins

Pins are having their moment, guys (pieces of flair, anyone?). They’re cute, fun and can accessorize any outfit. We are especially loving little animal pins like these, anything food related (as you will see below), and sassy remarks. After doing our own search, we stupidly attempted to browse pinterest, and damn, are there a lot of super cool pins on that stream. Get ready to get lost in this wormhole, my loves.

So for the time being, check out some of our faves…

Loving Now // Backpacks

Backpacks have come a long way since the middle school days when we lugged around 30 lbs of textbooks in camo-printed monogrammed monstrosities. These days they’re sleek, elegant, and simply put, we want one…
