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…

Floatin’ Around

This hot hot weather has got us dreaming of being near water, and what better way to cool down than in the pool with some amazing floaties! So these quirky floaties have been “floating around” the internet all summer (get it??), but incase you missed them, take a look…

Love Want Need // Espadrilles & Totes

gm_Espadrilles&Totes

Happy Monday, all! Hope you all had pleasant weekends! This past Saturday was my birthday, so Christa and her boyfriend came to pay me a visit in Boston. The weather turned out to be much nicer than we anticipated, so we got to go on some nice long walks. It got me thinking about how day-trip season is upon us — pleasant afternoons filled with slow strolls in destination towns, checking out local shops and markets. Days like those call for lightweight comfy shoes and easy carry-all totes for your finds along the way, with canvas being the perfect material for both! Check out some of our finds:


Love
Target Cap Toe Espadrille
Tri-Coastal Watermelon Tote

Want
Soludos Classic Espadrille
Dogeared Random Crap Tote

Need
JCrew Factory Geo-Print Espadrille
Becksondergaard Agave Tote


Sandals Galore

02. Georgia Sole Society mini wedge
03. Sarena Sole Society slip-on
04. Faithful Asos mint leather sandal

Happy Weekend!

Well, it was a short week, but it sure didn’t feel like it! Reg has been tackling her move into the new place (yay!), and Christa has had a lot of exciting Connecticut Art Directors Club things going on this week and weekend. We’re just excited for a couple days off from work to tackle house projects, hang with friends and take it easy.

Btw- how was everyones Memorial Day?? This was one of the first years we both didn’t attend any sort of big bash or BBQ, but as you might have been able to catch — we’re crazy busy, so we didn’t mind!

cct // My Oma brought Curtis and I some purple basil for an apartment warming present and I’ve been searching for some fun recipes to use this unique looking herb! This Purple Basil Pesto looks damn good, especially on the bruschetta!

rkv // I’m not generally a heels girl, but I’m kind of obsessed with these

cct // This lady has got style – love her Free People profile

rkv // I’m sorry, what? Spicy chocolate-covered tortilla chips. Yep.

cct // Have you guys heard of reverse washing? It’s when you use conditioner first, and then shampoo – strange right?! This super informative article has got me very excited to give it a shot!

rkv // Some good tips on how to shop like an interior designer

cct // Our friend Tara (last mentioned here in her artist profile), has been posting photo diaries from her European travels, and we are now crushing hard on Dingle, Ireland ❤

rkv// 20+ animal bellies that need to be rubbed right now

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!

Sweet Notes

Valentine’s Day can be the cause for an array of emotions, but if you’re sipping on that hater-ade, you have to admit, this holiday sure knows how to make a cute card. It’s pun-city up in here, and we’re soaking up every bit of it. It’s also becoming more and more apparent through the cards that we’ve seen, that these designers are total fat kids at heart, which we are so on board with. I mean… bagels, hotdogs, and butter? Don’t mind if I do.

Simple Seasonal Decor

Now that we’re a whopping three days into December, we have minimal time to get that seasonal decor up around our apartments. Since none of us have the time (or electric bill means) to deck-out our home exteriors with lights… we’re down for some simple inside DIYs to make things festive!

Etsy Round Up // Vol 12

Before we start gift guides (eek!), we’ll finish up November with a lovely Etsy Round Up, focusing on rich browns, bright metallics and natural elements – aka the best combo!

Happy (and safe!!) travels today on this crazy snowy day, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! xo G&M
