1. What are you favorite sneakers for working out? I know you guys have a lot of Nikes but I wasn’t sure which are working out and which are comfortable “mom sneaks”! I’m in the market for a new gym pair!
Brooke: I have this one and this one, and love both! I also love Irina Victoria jewelry – her stuff is so well made, I have this necklace & this one from her site.
Meggan: I have a few from Irina Victoria too and also like Nadri (just ordered this necklace) and Tai (need this evil eye and this star one!).
4. Do you ladies use under eye patches? If so which ones do you like?
Brooke: No, I was just looking for some the other day but didn’t see what I was looking for! I’ll keep you updated if I find any I like! All of these look kind of amazing!
Meggan: No I don’t but would love to try some too! I know these aren’t the same as patches but I just got these face mask sheets and cannot wait to try!
5. I’m thinking about buying the Bri Bri belt. Do you have any other styling tips for it besides jeans and a tee?
It looks so cute with dresses and rompers! I’ve seen it paired with a chambray dress and looked so cute! It also looks cute with maxi dresses (love this one and this one) and gives you a little shape. I’ll be styling it more on the blog and Brooke just got one too!
6. I’d like to know what a normal day looks like for you guys since I’m currently taking a break and always looking for new things to do!
Brooke: My days are seeming to get busier by the day…we wake up nice and early around 6:30-6:45 (both of the girls are for sure up by 7), I work on emails and/or the blog post for the day for 15 minutes, then breakfast for Sophia and Avery. I drop Sophia off at school, then I head to the gym. By the time I’m done working out and hitting the sauna, it’s time to pick up Sophia from school (gotta love those long preschool days lol), and we come home to eat lunch. The girls love to play in the backyard, at the park, or in their playroom. I do a lot of work in the afternoon if I can, or run errands. Before I know it, it’s time to start making dinner and get the bedtime routine going. After the girls are in bed I hang out with my hubs if he’s home from work…watching all the worst reality TV ;), and then I usually stay up later and try to do some more work…my new goal is to start going to bed earlier, by 10:30. I would say that is my most “typical” day, but every day is different.
Meggan: Camden usually wakes up between 6 and 7…sometimes 5:45 if were real lucky 😉 I make breakfast for Cam and shakes for Kyle and I. I’ll check my email and finish up a blog post if it needs be and then play with Camden until nap time which is usually around 9-9:30. During nap time I try to get emails and blog posts taken care of and do things done around the apartment – laundry, clean, organize. I’m kind of a neat freak and tend clean everyday 😉 After his nap we try to meet up with my friend who has a 6 month old. We will either go to music class at Monica + Andy in Lincoln Park or grab lunch. Then I usually run a few errands (Target obvi) and head home so Camden can take his afternoon nap. After his nap we will go to the park or just play at home and wait for Kyle to get off work so we can go to the gym. After that it’s dinner (if you follow on snap, I always try to post what I’m making!) and relax time. Some days I’ll go shopping or walk around different neighborhoods in the city…whatever Camden allows in his schedule 😉 And once it’s nice out (still feels like winter here!) I plan on going to farmers markets, walk along the lake, and venture out to more parks!
7. Meggan, I love your engagement ring! Do you know any specifics/details about it that you could share?
I don’t know much about it because Kyle designed it on his own! It’s cushion cut and has a diamond band. Here’s a picture of it since I’m literally no help 😉
8. I’m starting a new job and I need some new business casual basics. Any suggestions?
A few pairs of great black pants, a skirt, and a dress can get you far! When I used to work in an office, I pretty much rotated the same 4 bottoms all the time. I loved Ann Taylor, LOFT, and Nordstrom Rack to find basics that weren’t so $$$. I love these pants (40% off!), this blouse, and this skirt – all great basics you can mix and match with other pieces.
9. How do you guys dress your men?
Lucky for us they both have great style and usually shop for themselves! Their favorite stores are Nordstrom, J. Crew, and Barneys.
10. Meggan, I love your Isabel Marant sandals! Have you found any good dupes?
Yes! These are sooo good and a fraction of the price and so is this pair. These are amazing dupes of the Isabel Marant flat sandals and only $30! Brooke and I both got them!
