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 // Culottes

Happy hump day, loves! So, I know my dad is cringing right now (he’s not a fan of culottes…), but man are we crushing hard. They’re just so easy breezy! As you’ll see from our round up – you can wear them with t-shirts, button downs, sneakers, wedges, heels – they’re unbelievably versatile, and we love versatile! Are you guys back on the culotte train? Another 70’s trend rolling through making a statement. 🙌

Summer Style ’16 // Baggu

Summer calls for bags. You need a farmers’ market bag, a beach bag, an overnight bag, a going out bag, a work bag, a gym bag, a weekender bag…(ok ok, you get the point). And we should know, we’re self-proclaimed bag ladies and have no shame in that! Baggu has all of the bags right now, and we’re thinking we’d like one of each, plz!

Which is your favorite style or pattern?

Loving Now // Statement Tile

We are definitely suckers for a loud statement tile, and it seems like it’s popping up everywhere lately. It’s also a surprisingly versatile (pun non-intended) element to add to your space. While kitchens and bathrooms are the typical rooms you’ll see it in, it can also be seen in entry areas, and even on staircases.

Real ceramic tiles sadly can cost a pretty penny, and for us renters, that really doesn’t make much sense at all. But luckily there are all sorts of reasonable priced options that are easily removable, like here, here, and for something more classic/minimal here.

Loving Now // Backpacks

Backpacks have come a long way since the middle school days when we lugged around 30 lbs of textbooks in camo-printed monogrammed monstrosities. These days they’re sleek, elegant, and simply put, we want one…

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.

Loving Now // Burgundy Lips

We’ve been feeling awfully cooped up these days, and in ultra hibernation mode. While sitting on the couch with fuzzy socks and binge watching Nashville is all well and good, it can easily lead to feeling a little frumpy. Sometimes we gotta just force ourselves out of the house and onto the town. What’s a good way to push you into that? An edgy new beauty look.

Burgundy lips can be surprisingly versatile as far as style goes. Throw the color on with your leather (or faux) jacket and metallic earrings for a rocker look, a deep side part and waves for your inner 40s vixen, or try out a boho-etherial vibe with some braids or a felt hat. For you ladies with those big pouts out there, please do us a favor and give this velvety look a shot, so we can live vicariously through your show-stopping ways. This lip color positively screams dinner & drinks with the girls.

Loving Now // Birkenstocks

They’re baaaaack.. this hippie staple may have been on the back burner for a decade or  two, but the chunky style is making a comeback, and we’re pretty into it. Pair them with a flowy skirt, skinnies, slouchy trousers, or shorts, and you’ll be looking shockingly adorable.

Find some cute options for summer here, here, and here.

Loving Now : Fossil Spring Collection

Everyone knows about Fossil. Their watches have been a staple in every young person’s life – aka the fashionable but affordable watch.
