Yesterday, Catherine shared her post in partnership with Urban Outfitters and I am so excited to share mine with you today! Where Catherine stuck to our usual black monochrome, I decided to step a little outside the box with this white floral midi number!(more…)
Most of the weddings I have attended in recent years happened to be ones where I was a bridesmaid. This meant that my get-up was chosen for me, or in collaboration with the bride, and I did not have to worry about that decision in the least! When my cousin Caitlin’s wedding rolled around last week, however, I was excited to try something new. I found these amazing pants at Zara while Catherine and I were in New York and knew instantly that I had to do something really cool with them. (more…)
Nothing like saying ‘what’s up spring?’ with a trusty all black outfit. I mean, really, what else did you expect? As much as I keep trying to branch out with new pieces (and I really am trying), I always find myself coming back to black basics. It’s just so easy to mix and match my favorite black pieces to create new looks, no matter the season. Yes, I feel very redundant at this point, but alas, that’s about all I’ve got for you guys on this March Monday. (more…)
We just spent 5 wonderful days in Los Angeles for Catherine’s bachelorette party and we got to fit so many of our favorite Cali things into those days. If you were following along with us on insta-story and snapchat you got to see some behinds the scenes fun! If you didn’t, I won’t spoil all the details QUITE yet as we will be sharing our adventures over the next few blog posts! For now : here’s some pieces inspired by what we wore to snap some pix by the Hollywood sign.
For my birthday this year (the day after Christmas), John got me a bike! Its a turquoise cruiser and it is absolutely perfect for me. One of my favorite things growing up was riding bikes at the beach during our family vacations and around the neighborhood where I grew up. This past summer when we were at the beach John and I had such fun biking to and from the beach and all around Seaside and Watercolor and I can’t remember if I actually told him it would be fun to do it at home or if he could just tell. Either way, Johnny for the win. (more…)
With Catherine and my sister getting married in the next few months, I guess you could say I’ve always got wedding on ze brain. I usually have so much trouble coming up with titles for my post but as soon as I put on this outfit, I was immediately inspired. The only thing this look is missing is the Something Borrowed but that’s only because John took these photos and not Catherine. If it had been Cath, I would definitely have added something from her closet / jewelry collection / lip color choices to round out the look. (more…)
I’m sitting here, staring at my screen, waiting for inspiration to strike me, and I’m thinking ‘well, I’ll just write about how to get inspired to write a blog post.’ Very meta huh? Is that what meta is? I’ve never really understood the whole meta thing. Butttt I digress. In all honesty, I don’t think that I could tell you anything helpful about how to get inspired to write a blog post. I am always telling Catherine that she is so good at writing mindful, inspired posts and I’m always over here like HEY HOW COOL IS THIS DRESS? (more…)
Splattered across social media and consuming small talk conversations over the past week has been the crazy weather – at least in our neck of the woods. Last weekend we were graced with 8 and a half inches of snow here in RVA and by Thursday it was a balmy 68 degrees. In such situations, I have got to make sure I am prepared for whatever may come my way when I walk out the door in the morning.
Well folks, here we are in 2017 and I am going to write a little bit about my goals, as cliche as it it may be. 2016 was an amazing year- John and I bought a house, my sister and Catherine both got engaged, I started helping my mom out with her Turkish Towel biz, and of course the blog has continued to flourish (thank you all for your help with that!) That being said, it was a veryyyyy busy year and things were so overwhelming at times that it was tempting to just shut down completely. My goal for 2017 is to avoid said meltdown moments.
