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…

Love Want Need // Cross Body Bags & Blanket Scarves

Gm_LoveWantNeed_BlanketScarvesAndCrossBodyBags


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.

Yayyyy it’s crazy cropped high-waisted patterned pant season! Get wild, ladies. Bust out those ankles and make those weird trousers that you’ve always loved work. The above look is great because it combines the comfort of a flouncy chambray with the a little bit of edge through the funky pants and height in the shoes. The trees are blooming, and so is our love of a swanky pants.

If you can’t tell, this season we’re kind of very into neutrals — specifically greys and blacks.  It’s just so easy to match them, and when they’re all a great texture, you can look really pulled together. This little number is especially awesome, because it involves stretchy pants and sneakers — two staples for weekend daytime wear. And because these leggings are coated, with a quick change of the shoes you have your Saturday dinner outfit all ready to go. This wool-blend coat will keep you warm from the winter chill, and the beaded-tassel necklace keeps you on trend.

Hallelujah, it’s big chunky scarf season. Pretty much the greatest thing about a brisk day, is the fact that we can walk around with blankets draped around our necks. Cathy from Poor Little It Girl made this cozy look beyond adorable, with some metallic flats and tight black skinnies. We wish we could make the plaid-on-plaid work the way she did, but let’s be real, that’s no easy feat, so we went with a mossy solid pullover.

Loving Now // Wall Paper

We grew up in a time when wall paper was terrible… dated floral and patterned ceiling boarders, but times have changed. We are seeing wall paper being used in all sorts of stylish new ways with exciting new imagery. Check out some of our favorites these days…

Love Want Need // Ponchos & Felt Hats

 

We admit that we’re fully giving into our grandma-style love when it comes to the ponchos. I mean, it’s essentially wearing a blanket in public and calling it clothing. But let’s be real, ladies have been making it work lately. Pairing it with a felt hat makes this look very 70s, but very stylish. You may turn a few heads in this number, but only because you’ll look like a total b.a.m.f. in your cozy fall layers.

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday, friends! It looks like it’s going to be very Fall-ish this weekend, unlike last weekend, and we’re pretty excited! Christa is heading up to Vermont to visit family and check out the foliage and Reg is making brunch with the ladies tomorrow, followed by who knows what!

We’ve got our usual links below. Have a fabulous couple days off! xo G&M

cct // Speaking of foliage, how’s your state doing? CT is getting there, but it probably needs about a week or 2 for peak colors. Vermont looks like it should be just right for our visit this weekend! You can check out the US here, and state by state estimation here.

rkv // 20 ways to style the classic white button-down

cct // I heard a snippet of Lena Dunham’s Fresh Air interview with Terry Gross, and came across some videos she made to promote her book, and I’m impressed! I was happily surprised that although she is similar to Hannah on Girls, she is a much more aware and less self absorbed in real life (from what I could tell haha). This video made me like her even more!

rkv // Love this idea for DIY mismatched painted flatware

cct // I need to do this. right. now! Such a perfect DIY for my little apartment!

rkv // I mean, just because it’s Britain’s smallest horse.

cct // I have such a thing for bedding, and it’s always great to find out more tips and tricks! 

rkv // It’s October, so we can officially start thinking about Halloween costumes without seeming like the over-planners that we are. If you’re looking for some deas, here’s Buzzfeed’s “Which 90’s Halloween Costumer Should You Be?” quizz.
