This season we’ve realized that there’s just something so cool about a one-piece swim suit… they allow you to be a little modest by providing a bit more coverage, AND you can body-surf & cannonball without worrying if your top will still be on when you come to the surface 🙂 . And whether you’re by the pool or on the beach, a cute cold cup or tumbler will serve you well — fill it with some homemade spa water or a summery cocktail to keep things fresh and seasonally festive!
We love books, people love books, people poking around your house love books — so give them some great ones to sift through! As you can tell we’re big fans of gorgeously designed, interesting & beautiful books to sit down with — and your guests will thank you! But don’t forget yourself! Use these books for inspiration, lounging around, or a gift to yourself — because these amazing things will last a lifetime.
While we anxiously await the new iphone, there are still a few of us who can’t afford to immediately jump on the preorder wagon. In the mean time, we’ll be doing just fine with our 5’s & 5C’s, fancied up with some fun cases like these…
We’re spinnin’ off of our minimal living room feature from a while back with the bedroom version today! In case you forgot the basics, the key elements to this look are white on top of white, with some beige and wood grain, and more white. But you definitely can add a splash of color here and there if you’re feeling a little saucy. The root of this look focuses on stripping down from the unnecessary, and honing in on the lines and beauty of the individual statement pieces. The best part about this look? Fewer knick-knacks = fewer items for dust to build up on – yayy!
Loving on this simple look? Here are some pieces we found to help break into the minimal bedroom scheme:
These are just a few items we’ve been eying recently and they seemed to fit so well with the Valentine’s holiday – romantic, girly, sexy. We’re firm believers in being able to “treat yo self“, so if you don’t have a guy grabbing these for you, go ahead and get what you want girl! Or get your galentine something special! Either way, these days Valentine’s day isn’t just a romantic holiday, it’s a great way to tell anyone in your life how much you care about them.
Necklace // This gorgeous necklace will add a little sparkle and romance to any outfit.
Sequin Hearts // These are technically shoe clips, but honestly I think they can be anything clips! Pop one on a purse or a jacket to bring a little love out and about!
Watch // This gold statement watch has a sleek face and dainty chain links, perfect for everyday wear.
Flying Fox Shower Gel // This shower gel smells ahmazing, and it makes you feel sexy! Any girl would love to lather up with this and feel fresh!
iPhone Case // I’m basically just obsessed with gold polka dots, and Kate Spade cases are heavy-duty for my klutzy-self.
Hair Ties // These cuties have a little more pizazz than your average hair tie with their brass accent. Perfect little gifts and they’ll be happy they’re upgrading their elastic collection!
Bracelet // When I was in Anthro recently, this little guy spoke to me…and now it’s on sale!
Purse // Such a good little bag for day to night. The sleek leather, envelope flap, and gold chain band hit the nail on the head.
Lacy Bralette // Who wouldn’t feel sexy in this? It’s the perfect combination of sassy and sweet, allowing for multiple uses! Hide it under your everyday clothes for a special surprise or have it peek out to add some mystery and allure.
Jewelry Box // These jewelry boxes have a vintage feel and make your vanity look sophisticated while keeping your random earrings and bracelets organized.
Happy Monday everyone! NYE is right around the corner, and after our outfit guide last week, it was fun picking out something sassy to wear! Of course my plans have now changed and this sparkly number will be far too formal, so I’m going to be wearing something more along the lines of our house party pick. This outfit embodies our love of mixing casual and glam with a little vintage. The ampersand earrings were a Christmas prezzie from Reg, and as a designer they are perfect for me – I love them! We also want to give a little shout out to our families for getting us both new DSLRs for Christmas (camera twins)! This was our first shoot with the amazing Canon Rebel T3i and we’re so excited to see what else we can do with them! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Alright guys, it’s hump day (yay!) and it’s a special hump day…it’s exactly 2 weeks from Christmas! So we’re going to finish out this week with some fun gift guides so you can get some inspiration and quickly order any last minute gifts before time runs out! First off, the sister gift guide!
Here we have a list that you can mix and match for your sis, to create one great gift that she’ll not only flaunt, but get lot’s of use out of – a win win!
Baggu Tote // $45 – Practical and timeless, this carry-all is a great little something that your sister is bound to use again and again. Also available in horizontal stripes.
Jewelry Box // $49 – This organizer will make you want to sort your tangled jewelry web, which is no easy feat. Sadly the small size for this box has sold out, but West Elm still has the large size available. They also have several other beautiful finish options to choose from.
Striped Throw // $29 – *Currently on sale for $15!* These blankets are stupidly soft. She’ll either love you for it, or hate you for it, because she’ll never get off the couch again.
Vintage Cocktail Book // $35 – This well-designed book will look awesome on her coffee table, as well as teach her classy recipes to get a little tipsy with.
Kate Spade Bracelet // $58 – This little baby is never going to go out of style, and will certainly be appreciated when she wants to add a little extra bling to her look.
Silk Pajama Pants // $64 – So these pants are a bit of a splurge, but have you ever slept in silk pjs before? It’s marvelous, and worth the investment if you like the idea of your legs rolling in heaven. Plus, Gap pretty much always has coupons floating around or some sort of in-store sale, so if you keep your eyes peeled, you can likely get a killer deal on these bad boys.
Mercury Glass Candle // $25 – These candles have a sophisticated-cool glossy finish and smell oh so very nice. When the candle is out, she can pop the container in the freezer to remove the leftover wax. Then she can say hello to her new hairbrush holder.
L’occitane Lotion Set // $28 – These travel size hand-lotions will keep those cracked cuticles in check during these dry winter months. With luxe scents like rose, jasmine, and violet she’ll feel fancy and fresh.
Essie Nail Polish // $8 – “Cashmere bathrobe” is an understated metallic, in a steely gunmetal grey. It’s a great neutral, yet has just enough shimmer to make you feel a little dolled up.
