1 Item, 3 Ways // Winter Boots

While it might not be snowing at the moment (we heard you Punxsutawney Phil — early, rainy spring coming soon…), the dirty and muddy streets are by no means clear of wintery-mix slush. We want to protect our favorite leather booties and suede flats as long as possible, so stylish and functioning winter boots are a must in New England.

Christa received a pair of Sorel Joan of Arctic boots for Christmas and fell in love! And the Sorel boot collection is no joke! We pretty much want a style for every wintery condition.

We thought we’d dress up some winter boots…Hartford & Boston style – out on the town, on the commute, and daytime weekend in the snow – in these multipurpose Sorel Slimboot Lace-Ups.

Love Want Need // Statement Earrings & Pumps

Gm_LoveWantNeed_StatementEarrings&Heels

The amount of holiday parties we are going to this year is bonkers, guys! Are you feeling the same way?? While we’re all about a funky party dress, we’re also looking to spice up a LBD or a sleek jumpsuit with statement earrings and killer heels. We’re into the big chunky trend right now, and clearly are not fearing color!

Summer-End Sales

Pretty much the only thing okay about summer ending, is the fact that every store puts all of their summer goodies on super sale. We’re personally big fans of stocking up on items at the end of the season, because by the time you pull it out for next year, it’s like new! Check out some of our favorite items form around the web:

Summer Wedding Wear

Tomorrow, I am going to 2 weddings in 1 day (!!!). I am so excited to celebrate these wonderful couples and get our dance moves on. One perk of 2 events in 1 day is that I only had to buy 1 dress, ha. Luckily the vibes of the wedding are very similar – one is in a flower garden and the other is at a winery. Summer weddings can span many different occasions though – destination, black tie, cabin, etc., but we’ve got you covered for any weddings you might be attending in the last couple weeks of summer…

4Weddings_GardenParty


Garden Party // You don’t need to go overboard with your dress because the location is going to be so colorful and beautiful! Accessorize with natural, soft colors with a fun pop every now and then. *Bonus points for bringing the adorable pastel instant camera to capture the moment!

Instax // Necklace // Clutch // Dress // Heels 


 

4Weddings_BlackTie


Black Tie // Summer Black Tie’s are still a thing! And it’s a great place to break out your beloved black jumpsuit and metallic accessories. Think dramatic makeup and sassy dance moves (the jumpsuit & chunky heels will help with the later).

Necklace // Eyeliner // Jumpsuit // Purse // Mules 


4weddings_farm

Farm House // Rustic settings call for a bouncy flirty fit ‘n flare dress, and a little pop of an unexpected color. This ochre color is a little quirky, and you can pair it easily with pretty much any neutral palette, making it easy to accessorize.

Drop-earrings // Dress // Bracelet // Clutch // Flats


 

 

4weddings_beach

Beach Wedding //  Summer ain’t over yet, and the beach weddings can easily last through September. For this scene, thing light, flowy, and ethereal — this baby blue dress has a gorgeous neckline, which you can show off through some long drop earrings. Pair it with light colored accessories to fit the easy breezy vibe.

Dress // Rings // Earrings // Clutch // Sandals

Graduation Outfits

No, neither of us are graduating – but you probably know a few cousins, siblings or significant others who are. This upcoming weekend in Rhode Island, Christa’s brother is graduation from Roger Williams with a degree in Architecture (yay!), and she, Curtis, her parents, and both sets of grandparents will be there to celebrate. We’ve already had to deal with the graduation dress fiasco (what to wear??), but realizing that she’ll be in almost as many pictures as the graduate, the question about what to wear has come up again.

The biggest problem is weather. You never know what you’re going to get in New England in the beginning of May. Christa’s graduation was outdoors and POURING rain, while Regina’s was a nice day, but inside. Nick’s will be outdoors under a tent, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed for that the mid 70’s party cloudy forecast that we saw today. We’re breaking down a couple Graduation activity outfits for you — the actual ceremony, the afterparty and Sunday brunch with the fam — but feel free to mix and match if one outfit seems more appropriate for your event. And most importantly, layer up, fuel up (pack extra snacks and water), and sunscreen up if you’re outside, because you’re going to be there for awhile!

1 Item 3 Ways // Hooded Trench

Oh April, why are you so glum? Just a grey, wet, mess of a month you are! There’s pretty much only two things to get us through this limbo, and it’s the prospect of long summer days on the horizon and cute gear to help us through the New England downpours. That’s when the classic trench coat comes in. (*oh, and flowers – we’re cool with April showers if it brings May flowers)

Love, Want, Need // Bags in Bags

Gm_LoveWantNeed_BagsInBags

So we’ve come to the realization that we’re sort of crazy nomadic bag ladies, and that we simply need bags inside of bags. We’ve been feeling very on-the-go these days, so a carry-all tote has become an essential. However, totes aren’t really any good if you just throw your plethora of things in there, hence, the secondary bag. Bag #2 is great for your cosmetics, or other random what-not, to keep it easily stored and out of the way from the rest of the bits & bobs you may have. We’re even advocates for a third and fourth bag for you extreme baggers out there — we’re schleppers, and we’re not ashamed!


Love: Target Geo-Print Bag // Forever 21 Quilted Denim Pouch
Want: Old Navy Reversable Tote // Forever 21 Southwestern-Patterned Clutch
Need: Asos Leather Tote // Artsy Modern Kissing Seagulls Flat Pouch
