Happy Friday ladies! Sorry it took us so long to get this post up – we are both on different time zones and it’s still morning where we are ;)! If you don’t see your question it will for sure be up next week. We had so many but couldn’t finish them all today…the pool is calling our name 😉
1. What are your absolute favorite holy grail skincare items? Cleansers, toners, serum, face oil, moisturizers?
Meggan: I can’t live without a cleansing balm. I’ve used a few (Clinique, Elemis & Colleen Rothschild) and like them all. They really dissolve all your makeup off and my face feels so fresh after using. A few other products are this face wash, this facial oil, this hydrating cream, this overnight cream, this body oil, this anti-aging serum, and these energizing eye patches. Whew that seems like a lot!
This one would be super cute for date night, this floral blouse is pretty, love this bell sleeve top (under $25), and this (not so basic) basic tee.
We decided on a destination wedding because our family/friends live all over and would have to travel no matter where it was. So we thought might as well travel somewhere fun! To be honest, there wasn’t a lot of thought behind it. We picked Cabo because we both love it and it’s easy for our guests to travel to.
Meggan: For affordable decor I always check Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, and Target – they all have a huge selection and always have amazing sales. I love this floor lamp from Target (I have it in Cam’s room), this round wall mirror, and this wood tray. I’m also obsessed with West Elm but I only buy things from there when they have sales (which is all the time).
Brooke: Ikea, Overstock, Wayfair, West Elm, and CB2 are my go-to’s for affordable pieces. Also this link will take you to my favorite way to search for vintage rugs (I get asked about mine a lot, and finally found the proper link)!
5. What ingredients do you put in your smoothies?
Brooke: Usually just a banana, protein powder, almond butter, chia seeds and almond milk. But I recently used the collagen greens from Vital Proteins with almond milk, banana, mango, strawberries, blueberries, and spinach and it was great!
Meggan: I do half a banana, spinach and/or kale, 1 cup of fruit (usually blueberries or strawberries), protein powder, water or almond milk, and a flax/chia seed blend.
6. My least favorite part about working out is how many times I have to wash my hair throughout the week! What dry shampoos do you girls find works best for you?
Brooke: Agreed – literally the worst haha! My favorite 3 favorite dry shampoos are the Dove and Aveda ones Meggan linked below and this one from DryBar – love that they have one for brunettes! Can’t go wrong with any of these!
Meggan: I know the struggle – I only try to wash my hair 2-3 times a week. I love this one by Aveda and this one by Dove (under $5!).
This one is SO cute – love the front tie and print. A few others are this wrap dress, this tank dress, and this maxi dress.
Brooke: I’m always switching it up – but I love this purple shampoo & conditioner, this heat protectant, and this surf spray! I just picked up this mask, but I haven’t tried it yet (I’ve heard it’s amazing).
Meggan: I rotate between this purple shampoo and this hydrating shampoo and will use this apple cider vinegar cleanse once or twice a week. This conditioner is a must for me – it’s seriously the only conditioner that makes my hair soft/easy to comb through. I have a lot of leave in products I like but a few all time favorites are this Kenra blow-dry spray, Bumble and bumble invisible oil primer, and Moroccan hair oil. I also use this Kenra heat protecting spray and hairspray. We linked our favorite dry shampoos in question 6!
9. I’m looking for some closed toe slides for the summer. I would love a pair in black and another in blush, but can’t seem to find any that I really like. Suggestions?
This one is gorgeous, obsessed with this maxi (under $100), love this off-the-shoulder, and this pretty lace one!
We have never been but it’s on our list! We would just do jeans or leggings, tees, a cute camo jacket, a baseball cap and comfy sneakers (these are our favorite!). You could also do maxi dresses if it’s hot outside. This bag would be a great crossbody option – we’re obsessed with the blush!
This sides on this one is great, this one is simple + sexy (love the deep v), and love this lace-up one.
Congrats – that is so exciting! We always see the cutest office-wear at Ann Taylor. This top is pretty and can be worn with so much, these pants are great (Meggan has them), love this jacket, and this skirt is great + versatile. You should also check Banana Republic and Loft.
15. I was wondering if you had any recommendations for a cute maternity dress for my baby shower. I’ve been looking online and haven’t found anything I love. Looking for something trendy and fresh.
You could do something classic/simple like this off the shoulder (white is pretty with a pop of color for your shoes!), this floral one is fun, and this maxi would be cute too!
16. I’m doing a girls trip/ski in Breckenridge next weekend. Any outfit ideas for apres ski and just in general?
Casual, comfy and cute! Love this top, this sweater, and this dress for a drink/dinner – throw it on with a denim or moto jacket, sneakers or heels and it would be so cute! Have fun!
17. Can you guys link our outfits from the perfume post on Wednesday?
Meggan: I was wearing this MK sweater, these jeans, and these nude heels.
Brooke: This is the dress I was wearing – honestly obsessed! It’s so so comfy, and flattering! I’ve worn it with sneakers and heels, perfect for summer! Here’s the jacket – buttery soft and love the color for spring!
