Loving Now // Embroidery

Is everyone else as into the embroidery craze as we are?! It’s such an interesting mixture of femininity, folk and tradition that really speaks to us as creatives. Off to the store – or thrift store? or maybe even the craft store…

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…

Happy Weekend!

Hey all, whatchya got going on this weekend? We’re embracing these last few weeks of winter with a little r&r, and feel pretty shameless about it. Christa has a couple low-key birthday get-togethers, while Reg will be found watching movies on the couch under mountains of blankies (shocking).

Have a beautiful weekend 🙂

Loving Now // High-Waisted Jeans

While it’s still a smidge too warm outside to bust out our jeans, we can’t help but get excited for fall layers when we see so many high waisted looks these days. Not sure where to begin looking? Try here, here, and so many options here.

Fall Style ’14 // Gap

We’re not quite ready for fall, but alas, we have succumbed to the fashion world. Gap is one of the many brands who is on point this upcoming season — with slouchy fits, warm neutrals, and lots of texture. It’s hard to say so-long to summer, but the prospect of trendy layers makes the transition a little smoother.

Madewell Spring 2014

As a part-time Madewell employee for the last 2 1/2 years, I figured it was about time I did a little feature on them! This company is truly a great one to work for – not only is it a beautiful brand aesthetically, but the environment is equally charming. When you’re in the store and we ask if we can help you find anything, we genuinely mean it. We want to help you find something trendy and comfortable, to make you look like the Parisian goddess we all long to be.

If you haven’t checked out their 2014 spring line yet, check out some of my favorite items for the collection below:
