Weekend Happenings

I've been looking for a suede moto jacket, and found this one over the weekend - the detail on the back is great! Also, if you're looking for a great striped shirt, this one is on major sale & I love it. 
We spent Sunday in SoHo - one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city. I love the people and the stores, so good! 
I posted this liquid lipstick (in color Lolita) on Snapchat, and wore it for the first time this weekend. It is suuuuch a great color - perfect for fall, I would highly recommend it!
Dos Caminos is one of our favorite places in SoHo to lunch - it's ultra kid-friendly, and they have some amazing guac. Sophia's little bunny sweater is from H&M, and her leggings are from Tarjay!
I've been wanting this Acne Studios scarf for such a long time, and finally made a trip to their store to pick it up. If you haven't been to their store (in SoHo) you need to go - it's an experience. It's not like other stores, it's set up more like a museum...I had to ask for this scarf because they don't display everything they have...it's odd, but interesting for sure! They have some ah-maz-ing jackets (case in point), but I was on a mission for this scarf. You can easily get the look for less here and here
We are getting excited for Halloween over here! Love this little onesie, and this gold skull is such a steal for Halloween decor at $8. 

Have a great day everyone! xx

Oversized Shawl Collar

coat | jeans c/o | booties c/o | bag | necklace c/o | sunglasses (on sale!) | nail polish

Don't you love a good Forever21 find? This coat was a must-have after Brooke posted it to our instagram a few weeks ago. I love the oversized shawl collar and leather trim, it makes the coat look more expensive then it is (only $70!). This coat has a similar collar but comes in burgundy...so perfect for fall! My booties are from Sole Society and are sooo comfortable! I wore them all weekend and didn't have any problems with them. Ok, I'm off to the gym! It's my first time leaving Camden in the daycare and I'm a little nervous. His colic is getting better but he definitely still has his moments (aka freak outs! ha!) so I hope he does okay. I'm going to be one of those crazy moms peaking in the window every 5 minutes LOL!



1. Meggan - what color is that lip pencil you posted on Snapchat (user name is somewherelately)? 
First of all let me say this lip pencil is the best! It feels like chapstick but looks like lipstick - you feel what I'm saying?! The color I posted on Snapchat is "Innocent" which is great for everyday. I definitely want a few more colors!

2. What kind of strollers do you each have, and do you like them?
Brooke: I have the nuna IVVI, and I love it. It didn't come with an organizer, so I recently purchased this one and would highly recommend it.
Meggan: I have the nuna MIXX, and I love it as well! Not only is it sleek and stylish but it's very functional and easy to use.

3. What are your daily hair care routines? Will you make any tutorials? 
Brooke: I wash my hair every other day, or every 3 days depending on the week/how my hair is behaving. I previously mentioned that I was using cheap shampoo and it made my hair feel so waxy and gross, so recently switched to Biolage Color Care shampoo and conditioner and love it. I try to let it air dry most days, but end up using the blowdryer if we are going out. I use oil and this sea salt spray (perfect for beachy waves) for products and top it off with some hairspray.
Meggan: My hair is really thick and curly (that's why my topknot works so well) so I only wash it 2-3 times a week. I use this styling lotion before blowdrying for heat protection. For second day hair I use dry shampoo (I also like Dove, you can pick it up at any drugstore) and invisible oil and try to avoid the curling iron. I also love surf spray to add some texture!
We are currently working on a few hair tutorials for you, and so sorry it's taken so long...we're not tech-savvy when it comes to videos! ;)

4. Meggan - where did you purchase your marble phone case?
Society6, I could browse this site for hours but my exact case is here!

5. How do you keep track of your 'wishlist' items/items you want to buy? Any tips on organizing these lists?
Brooke: One of three ways: I either pin them to our "wishlist" board, or take a screenshot on my phone AND mark that photo as one of my "favorites." It's easy for photos to get lost in the camera roll, but if you mark your favorites, you can simply go to your favorites folder for easier organization. The third thing I do is add the item to our SHOP page on our blog - we recently updated it with our wishlist items - everything is UNDER $100!
Meggan: I'm a huge online shopper, so I have a folder on my bookmark bar called "to buy" and save everything to it. I'm also a little old school and have a notebook I write everything in. I keep an ongoing list of things I want (i.e suede jacket, brown booties) and cross them off as I get them.

6. Meggan - any tips for pumping?
I was pumping every 3 hours for 15-20 minutes until a couple weeks ago. Now that he's three months I spread it out and only do it 4 times a day (about every 5 hours) which is SO nice. I supplement with some formula but he mostly gets breast milk. If you are breastfeeding and want to pump so your partner can do some bottles to give you a break, start pumping for 5 minutes or so after feedings. Some ways to keep your supply up: drink lots of water (I have bottles of water sitting next to my pump), mothers milk, avoid tight sport bras, take fenugreek and eat a lot! This hands free bra is also a game changer! It's a real labor of love :)

3 Simple Fall Outfit Ideas

As you probably already know, fringe is a huge trend right now. Jackets are an easy way to incorporate the trend in your outfit. This one is from Forever21 (also love this) and looks almost identical to the one below. Pair it with suede booties and your set.

This is monochromatic done right. I love how effortless and chic this outfit is. Sweaters and skirts are an easy fall look. I'm adding this skirt to my shopping cart ASAP.

Over the knee boots are an easy way to dress up an outfit. We both have this pair and love them! Another great option are these or you could go all out and get the most coveted Stuart Weitzman Highlanders - we'll take one of each!


Weekend Looks

A few looks I wore over the weekend...

This first look was for a day in the city - it was really chilly when we went for breakfast, but it was supposed to get warmer in the afternoon so I threw on a couple layers. This turtleneck is perfect for fall because it's sleeveless, so it's easy to wear alone or with a jacket. I found these jeans for only $54, and they run TTS. We walked 4 miles or more (+ didn't sit down all day), and my feet only started to hurt the last 10 minutes...these boots are honestly so comfortable. 
Strollin' with the nuna IVVI. I purchased this universal organizer for our stroller and love it, would highly recommend it! 
Finally found these sunnies online for you HERE (and for $100 less than retail!). 

And later that night...I changed into this new dress from Zara with these OTK boots. I love boots with dresses/skirts - such a fun, flirty look for date night.

Happy Hump Day! xx 

Fall Wants

Fall Wants
sweater | poncho | bag
boots | bucket bag | lipstick | skirt
hat | jacket

Fall is in full swing over here which means I'm feeling more pressure to shop (ha, any excuse right!?) for the season. I'm a coat hoarder (recently got this and lovveee it!) but I'm still on the hunt for a trench. I love how chic and simple this one is, thinking it's a must have! This season is all about the bold lip so I want to step outside my comfort zone (nude lip all day) and go red! Mac has some great colors but I want to hear what you all love!


Feminine Edge

 jacket (more affordable here) | tee (only $13!) | belt (worn backwards) | skirt c/o | sunnies | bag (more affordable option here

Happy Monday, hope you had a great weekend! I love this skirt - it's such a statement maker and can be worn so many different ways. I wanted to add a little edge to it for a date night, so I threw on a graphic tee and my favorite leather jacket. I love the overall look - it's fun, flirty, but not too over-the-top. As you know I'm normally a jeans kind of girl, but I've been purchasing a lot of dresses and skirts lately and can't wait to wear them throughout the fall. I'm so tired from the weekend - off to grab coffee before a busy busy day! xx
