Love, Want, Need // Beach Coverups and Speakers

lovewantneed_beachcoverupsandspeakers


With all of this warm weather and sunny days, we can’t help but dream about having our feet in the sand while we sit in our cubes. We’re loving ourselves some vintage inspired kaftan-style beach coverups & cutesy embroidered tops to throw on once you’ve had a little too much Vitamin D. And of course no beach day is complete without an easy-to-carry speaker. Seriously, grab yourself one if you don’t have on already, they make all outdoor gatherings that much better!

1 Item, 3 Ways // Winter Boots

While it might not be snowing at the moment (we heard you Punxsutawney Phil — early, rainy spring coming soon…), the dirty and muddy streets are by no means clear of wintery-mix slush. We want to protect our favorite leather booties and suede flats as long as possible, so stylish and functioning winter boots are a must in New England.

Christa received a pair of Sorel Joan of Arctic boots for Christmas and fell in love! And the Sorel boot collection is no joke! We pretty much want a style for every wintery condition.

We thought we’d dress up some winter boots…Hartford & Boston style – out on the town, on the commute, and daytime weekend in the snow – in these multipurpose Sorel Slimboot Lace-Ups.

Back To School

BackToSchool

While we’re very happy to not be returning to school, there is something about the “back to school” shopping buzz that doesn’t really go away! With tax free week a few weeks ago, the stores switching over to their Fall looks, and the weather getting a little cooler (or it was…curse you Sept heat wave!), we want all of the things. The fun part about back to school shopping is that it’s not just clothes, or supplies – it’s both! Agendas, cute staplers and notepads for the office, unique sweaters and trendy flats for Fall, and a great useful bag full of goodies for your everyday look – happy adult back to school shopping to us!

Summer Wedding Wear

Tomorrow, I am going to 2 weddings in 1 day (!!!). I am so excited to celebrate these wonderful couples and get our dance moves on. One perk of 2 events in 1 day is that I only had to buy 1 dress, ha. Luckily the vibes of the wedding are very similar – one is in a flower garden and the other is at a winery. Summer weddings can span many different occasions though – destination, black tie, cabin, etc., but we’ve got you covered for any weddings you might be attending in the last couple weeks of summer…

4Weddings_GardenParty


Garden Party // You don’t need to go overboard with your dress because the location is going to be so colorful and beautiful! Accessorize with natural, soft colors with a fun pop every now and then. *Bonus points for bringing the adorable pastel instant camera to capture the moment!

Instax // Necklace // Clutch // Dress // Heels 


 

4Weddings_BlackTie


Black Tie // Summer Black Tie’s are still a thing! And it’s a great place to break out your beloved black jumpsuit and metallic accessories. Think dramatic makeup and sassy dance moves (the jumpsuit & chunky heels will help with the later).

Necklace // Eyeliner // Jumpsuit // Purse // Mules 


4weddings_farm

Farm House // Rustic settings call for a bouncy flirty fit ‘n flare dress, and a little pop of an unexpected color. This ochre color is a little quirky, and you can pair it easily with pretty much any neutral palette, making it easy to accessorize.

Drop-earrings // Dress // Bracelet // Clutch // Flats


 

 

4weddings_beach

Beach Wedding //  Summer ain’t over yet, and the beach weddings can easily last through September. For this scene, thing light, flowy, and ethereal — this baby blue dress has a gorgeous neckline, which you can show off through some long drop earrings. Pair it with light colored accessories to fit the easy breezy vibe.

Dress // Rings // Earrings // Clutch // Sandals


 

 

Love Want Need // One Pieces & Tumblers

gm_lovewantneed_Poolside

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!

Next week is St. Patricks Day, and the next few weekends will be filled with green beer and celebrating. While green can be a great color, it’s not necessarily easy to wear – but as usual, Kat from With Love From Kat is rocking this sleek green trench. Check out below for our own take on her chic look:

NYE Outfits

What are your NYE plans? We might be spending it together this year (which hasn’t happened in years!), with a delicious dinner out and then drinks with friends. Sounds pretty great to me! The other *awesome* option was to snuggle up with a cozy cocktail and watch a ton of movies. No matter what you’re up to – have a blast! Here are a couple outfit options for wherever your night might bring you…

Drinks // There’s something about heading out to the bar later than usual that’s fun and exciting! Grab a cute dress, some bling and a cozy coat and be on your way to toast in the new year! Dress // Earrings // Coat // Knee High Boots // Fringe Purse

Gingham makes us think of spring and summer – picnics anyone? But it doesn’t have to be homely, gingham is going vintage glam! We’re totally into the idea of adding this fun print to different aspects of our outfit, from our sunnies to our sneaks. We’ve got you covered from outdoor gatherings with friends at the park to strolling around the city. So think about adding some gingham to your wardrobe this summer  – go gingham!

1 Item, 3 Ways // White Billowy Top

With the warmer weather (hopefully) right around the corner, we’re looking towards cute billowy tops. They’re perfect for spring layering, and the crisp white matches just about anything. It can easily go from day to night with some playing of accessories. We’re loving this guy for it’s flirty layered detail on the bottom, which can also easily be tucked into skirts.
