The Thanksgiving countdown starts today! What are you guys wearing? Reg will be hosting her family in Boston, so a normal, cute outfit can happen, while Christa will be up in New Hampshire at the Farm, so comfort/warmth will win over style.

Olivia’s festive look is perfect for Thanksgiving – mixing deep hues and trendy textiles like pleats, leather and metallics. A cozy but chic sweater mixed with a fun midi skirt and your favorite booties will keep you feeling cute but comfy all night long! Which is important for a holiday centered around eating…

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…

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 // Cross Body Bags & Blanket Scarves

Blanket scarves are definitely having a moment right now. And why shouldn’t they? I think we can all agree that when we leave the house and it’s in the 30s, feeling like you’re wrapped up in a giant blankie brings a tremendous amount of comfort. The key to not looking like Lenny Kravtiz when you wear this style, is to know your limits. Keep proportions, fabric, and texture in mind. Don’t forget that it is in fact a scarf, you are in public, and not on your couch watching Netflix. To balance it out, pair it with a petite cross-body and skinnies, to keep your frame looking lean and polished.

{Almost} Fall Beauty Trends

Guys, 2 days from now it will officially be fall! Now that things are cooling off a bit and our faces won’t be melting off, it’s a perfect time to get a little funky with fun trends in the beauty department. Some big things we’re loving at the moment  —sharp cat eyes, smudged smokey shadows, vampy lips, rose-y cheeks & puckers, minimal nail art, romantic updos, fringy bangs with piece-y ends, braids galore, and balayage highlights.

What’re you all feeling at the moment??

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.

Happy Weekend!

Wait, it is fall, right? Then why have some of these last few days felt like some of the hottest we’ve had all summer? Seems like mother nature may be playing tricks on us, but hey, we don’t hate it. Pretty soon I’m sure it’ll be nice and chilly, and we can all partake it a little apple-fritter and mulled wine action. But until then, I suppose we can just keep rocking those open toed shoes and strappy tanks.

cct // Have you guys ever heard of this at home fragrance testing service? It’s like the Warby Parker at home glasses trial, but with fragrances – sounds so cool!

rkv // So, apparently we’re colonizing Mars. This podcast is sort of amazing and tells you all about it.

rkv // Yayyy it’s cold out so I can eat oatmeal again! Love the carrot cake idea.

Favorite Fall Footwear

shoes

Shoes. Shoes shoes. Shoes. How we love them so. They just pull an outfit together so perfectly, and fall just screams for new footwear to fall into your lives. So without further ado, I present to you my top faves for this upcoming season:

01. Oxblood Penny Loafer // These menswear inspired little numbers will have you looking sharp and classy. But you may also need to get a pipe, readers, and bow-tie to pull the look together (jk, please don’t do that).

02. Heeled Ankle Bootie // Seriously though, what was I wearing in the fall before booties came into my life? I feel like they just recently came about, and quickly became a fashion staple. Hail to the bootie!

03. Nude Flats // How adorable are those scalloped edges? #icant. Nude flats are simply a must for ladies, and pretty much work year round.

04. Classic Black Heels // I have to admit I don’t have a single pair of classic black heels. Sinful, I know. But now that I’m officially in my mid-twenties (eek), I think it’s about time I get a pair. They just make your legs and bum looks so killer. I really want to wear these with some skinny denim and a plaid button up.

05. D’Orsay Flats // One of the latest trends in the world of flats is the d’orsay. For ladies with little feet like me, they do a great job of elongating your foot a bit to make them look more proportionate to your legs. I got a similar pair to these with a mini wedge from Marshall’s that I’m stoked to wear out.

06. Tall Leather Boots // I’m getting these. It’s official. I mean, that leather. AND they’re a wide-calf. It’s been an honest struggle for me to find boots to fit around my tree-stump like calves, so I’m really hoping these work out!

1 Item, 3 Ways // The Oxford

As open-toed shoe season draws near to a close, we can begin to embrace in the beauty of a good oxford. This versatile little staple has stood the test of time, and has quite literally been around for centuries. Let’s get all 18th century chic, shall we?
