Cabo Recap

romper (also love this) | sunglasses | hat
I went to Cabo a few weeks ago for my SIL's bachelorette party! We had a group of 11 girls and we stayed at Casa Dorada. It was the perfect location - Mango Deck and The Office we're directly in front of our hotel and we could walk to all the restaurants and shops downtown. I would definitely recommend it!
First margs of the trip!
The first night there was only 6 of us there and we went to dinner at Edith's. It was sooooo good and the decor is so beautiful. I'm still dreaming about their ceasar salad. We planned on taking it easy so we could be fresh and ready to go the next day...well that definitely did NOT happen! Let's just say I wasn't feeling well until 2pm the next day...
 Saturday was our big night out. We went to Cabo Wabo and Mandala!
The boat was a highlight of the trip. We saw whales, swam to a beach, had bottomless drinks and homemade guac and fajitas. Afterwards we headed to the bars and got really inappropriate henna tattoos and corn rows.
I lovvvee whales. My favorite are orca whales but it was so amazing see humpback whales!
This boat was parked outside our hotel the whole time we were there. We did some creeping and found out David Foster was on it!
We spent quite a bit of time here...
Such a fun trip! I can't wait to go back!
I didn't have time to make a collage of all my favorites but if you are headed somewhere warm - I love this bag, romper, sandals and maxi dress! So cute!

1. How do you ladies apply your foundation?
We both use this beauty blender - a lot of people don't realize that you have to get it wet (run water over it and squeeze continually until it's completely saturated - it should double in size), and wring it out once in a clean towel. It should be very damp when you apply your foundation - that will give you the most flawless coverage. We've also seen some of our favorite youtuber's using this brush and really want to give it a try! 

2. What are some of your favorite pairs of distressed denim jeans that don't break the bank?
Meggan: I have this pair of BlankNYC denim and love them! They're under $100 and the quality and fit are great. I want to order a few more pairs from them - I love this pair and this pair.
Brooke: I've purchased both expensive & inexpensive distressed denim, and my favorite pair is from One Teaspoon. They aren't cheap, but they aren't outrageously expensive either, and I've had mine for a few years, so I think they're worth the price. 

3. Where do you shop for the majority of your summer clothes? And what are good splurges for summer?
Brooke: I love Revolve & Shopbop for summer clothes - they always have the best pieces, but I also head to H&M, Zara & Forever 21 for trendier pieces that I don't want to spend a lot of $$ on. I think good splurges for summer are: denim cutoffs (obsessed with these) - if you buy a nice pair, they will last you a few summers, a great pair of wedges (we both snagged this pair for summer), and a jacket that can go with any outfit.
Meggan: I love Revolve for summer clothes! They have the best selection of rompers which I pretty much live in during the summer (love this one and this!). I splurge on summer basics that I can wore over and over again - shoes, maxi dresses, midi dresses, rompers and shorts. I also head to Forever21 (they have the best coverups - want this!) and H&M for trendy pieces.

4. I'm looking for a taupe handbag, nothing too trendy or expensive...any suggestions? 
We've rounded up a few options for you: kind of obsessed with this one, this one looks much more expensive than it is, and while this bag is more of a camel color, it's such a classic and only $60!

5. I'm looking for some dresses that have easy access for nursing/pumping, but can't find any that are fashion-forward, please help! 
A wrap dress is a great way to go - easy access & always flattering, it doesn't get much easier than a strapless dress, and a halter is another great option.

6. I recently got engaged and am considering a destination wedding (possibly Cabo). Meggan, do you have any tips on destination weddings? What are your plans for the big day?
I honestly haven't done anything for it yet because we aren't getting married until June of 2017 - so I have awhile! I did hire a wedding planner (Amy Abbott Weddings) and went down to look at venues! You definitely don't have to go down to look at venues. My wedding planner said she works exclusively with people via phone and email all the time.

7. How can I style lace-up sandals in the summer (other than with jeans)? 
Lace-up sandals look great with high-low dresses (obsessed with this one), rompers, and cutoff jeans & an oversized tee for a more casual look! 

8. What size did you guys order in your TRIANGL bikinis? 
We both ordered a small top & small bottom.

9. I moved to California from Chicago about a year ago, and am struggling to build my wardrobe. I either dress way too warm, or I'm cold because I didn't layer properly. Any tips on starting with basics and building a wardrobe appropriate for SoCal?
Brooke: I was right there with you when I lived in California - I moved there from Chicago and didn't want to get rid of my winter wardrobe, but quickly realized I didn't have the right pieces for a California "winter." I think some great pieces to have for layering are tanks, henleys, a good chambray shirt (just got this one and love it), cardigans, a denim jacketa leather jacket, and some lightweight scarves. Those pieces should give you a pretty good base, along with some of your cooler weather coats on the (very few) days it gets cold enough!

10. Brooke, where is the rug in your foyer from? Where are your favorite places to go for home inspo & what stores do you go to for home decor?
The rug is a recent purchase from @kayakilims on Instagram - view her website here, she has the best vintage rugs! I look to my favorite designers (Amber Lewis, Becki Owens & Nicole Davis are my top 3) for home inspo as well as blogs like My Domain. My favorite places to shop for home decor are West Elm, Restoration Hardware, CB2, Jayson Home, and One Kings Lane.

11. Can you ladies please post some outfits that are geared towards girl's night out, date night, and looks that can go from work (not formal) to happy hour? 
Sure! We will certainly keep these ideas in mind for upcoming outfit or style posts, thanks for the suggestion!

*As always, please leave your questions for next week's #coffeetalk post in the comments below OR email us! Have a great weekend babes! xx 

Spring Favorites Under $100

I'm currently shopping for my spring wardrobe, and can't believe how many amazing pieces I've found under $100! We love mixing high & low, and I'm ready to add all of these items to my cart! Seriously, so good! What's your favorite? I think the trench wins for me, it looks so much more expensive than it is! Hope you are all having a great week! xx 


#whatwewore

We're so happy you guys like our new series! It's an easy way for us to showcase outfits that don't make it on the blog or instagram! I wore this outfit to run errands yesterday. I had quite a bit today so I wanted to be extra comfy! This sweatshirt is so soft, it will be on heavy rotation!
sweater (wearing size 4) | button down (sold out - similar here & here) | jeans | beanie
I'm clearly into lace-up tops lately! The dress runs a little big - I'm wearing a size small but definitely could of gone down to an XS. I can't wait to wear it in the spring with sandals or booties!
jacket | top | jeans | lipstick (creme d'nude)

Love a good denim on denim look! It's casual, comfortable, but still looks put together for running errands!

I wore this outfit to a basketball game last Friday - I'm so in love with this top from French Connection!

Street Style


I would be lying if I said I don't wear leggings almost everyday. Camden is on the go now so I have been reaching for the comfy's to chase him around in! This whole outfit is from Carbon38. They know how to make you look cool from the gym to the streets. I love the leather look of these leggings - so cute but soooo comfortable. Be prepared to see me in them 24/7! This jacket is also a new favorite. I like to throw it on for the gym because it's not too heavy.

Athleisurely Weekend

 
I mentioned last week how a lot of my weekday outfits consist of athleisure looks, and this one I wore over the weekend is probably my new favorite. These pants from Carbon38 are so cool & comfortable. I actually wore them to the gym as well, and can't tell you how many people were asking me where they were from. I also recently got this pair which I'm equally as obsessed with - I love the leather look. I've been looking for a cool sports bra for a while now, and love the detailed straps on this one - they have so many great bras to choose from here (just added this one to my cart).
