Wedding Mondays

Elisa had asked me the other day if I had posted any good Wedding Mondays videos lately and the honest answer was that I hadn’t – not since May. If I could, I’d have one ready every week. I went through my wedding blogs today – like I do every Sunday – trying to find the right one. The end of it let me down. So then I sat and thought about it a little bit more. Did I have any… in the queue? Was it in my notes and had I just somehow not gotten to a few of them yet? Sure enough, there was one. It was like the universe knew I needed a wedding video and saved this one just for today. It’s special because as soon as I watched it, I kind of knew why I had been saving it for so long. It was so unbelievably perfect. It didn’t come with a wedding feature. In fact, I don’t know where it came from. It looks like I had just stumbled upon it somewhere and knew I needed to save it so I saved just the link for the video.

There is so much that I love about this video though. I know nothing about these two people; there’s no story that accompanies it except only their dialogue. I love that Meg wore several dresses the night of her wedding – something I, too, believe in. :) The best part? The two got married on New Year’s Eve! I’ve been thinking for some time now that having a wedding on New Year’s Eve is genius because most people hate this holiday. Most don’t want to make plans for New Year’s Eve so why not host the best party ever to kick off the year?

adidas – Pink “Zebra”

Every week we have a new shoe on display and every week we love each pair more than the last. Really and truly, this has my name written all over it. I’m obsessed with the baby pink, white, and black combination. I think we’ve mentioned this before, but this color palette were all my favorite colors when I was in 9th grade so that’s a big deal, you know? Back then, that was also because Nordstrom’s Brass Plum – or BP as we know it – went through a transformation and their colors became pink, black and white. A little history for you there.

The pink, black and white combination of the “Zebra” iteration is the perfect mix of feminine and sporty. The Primeknit upper adds texture and dimension to the lifestyle sneaker. For those looking for ankle support, you can find a plush, foot-hugging collar on this silhouette.

It looks like these will be in adidas stores soon, but there is no price marked for it yet – we need to know.

For Sub Pop

Top – Sub Pop / Denim + Cap – Urban Outfitters / Sneakers – Converse

Holy smokes! Look how bebe I look in this photo above. I am late 20’s going on 14 here; the funny thing is though is that this is exactly how I dressed when I was 14 so it’s almost a little bit eerie to be looking at this. Is it weird to say that one of my favorite places is the Sea-Tac Airport? Sometimes I ask my parents to drop me off a little bit earlier than I need for my flight so that I can spend my time there shopping and having one last meal before I take off. Sub Pop Records happens to have a merch store there which I highly recommend everyone checking out because you can get – well – records, so many tees, and other fun gifts. I basically make a purchase every time I drop in and have two tees and a sweatshirt from them. I like this tee a lot for its simplicity, but the material fits like a boys’ tee so it might not be the most comfortable tee to wear. I paired this with denim, Converse, and a backwards baseball cap because I wanted to dress not like myself AT ALL THIS DAY.

Cozy in Brandy

Top – Brandy Melville / Pants – Uniqlo / Shoes – Keds

95% of the time I prefer to get dressed up for work and to spend a little bit of time constructing new outfits together. For the other 5% though? I don’t have it in me. I wake up and decide I don’t really care how anyone sees me that day and for those days, I turn to outfits like these! To me, it’s still not very dressed up at all. I’m totally completely cozy and my coworkers will still turn to me and think that I put some new effort into an outfit. It’s not true. This Brandy Melville hoodie is one of the best things I own. I think it’s one of their signatures actually and they have it in tons of colors at their store at an affordable price. I’ve had this since I first moved here in 2013 and wear it on the reg. These pants are my Uniqlo jeggings which you’ve seen a million times before and these Keds are from middle school and still wearable, but not as white as they once were.

The Smallest Things

My mom and I have this tradition of a beauty swap every time I come back home to Seattle. I bring her the products that I haven’t touched or have barely touched and she hands me over the products that she doesn’t need. We’ve got this system down! When I returned home for the holidays, she gave me these three small products and I’m always in the camp of “I’ll try anything once.” I can’t remember where this cute little soap is from, but it says Lather and its adorable. The hand lotion is from Crabtree & Evelyn and while I don’t shop there, I’m now very obsessed with this tube and keep it at my desk at work for those especially dry moments. This is also the first time that I was introduced to Molton and Brown and the day I finished this shower gel was the saddest day of my life. The scent was pink pepperpod or peppercorn (I can’t remember) but it’s one that I haven’t been able to get out of my head. I didn’t need the Clarins bag on the left since I already have a beauty bag, but I DID just use this as a clutch for a recent wedding I attended. More on that later ;)

adidas Originals NMD_R1 “White Rose”

These days, I can’t get enough of the minimalist look, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want a boost of color every now and then. These sneakers provide the right amount and how cute are these bursts of pink?! I’m in love. We say this about every pair that we feature on Yow Yow! but even still I’m convinced that even if I owned each pair that I blogged about, that it would never be enough. We’d never be complete. These are an exclusive pair and come with a layer of breathable mesh, tonal details on the laces and a leather heel tab. These were released at select adidas on June 10th.

Getting By With Grayton

In the digital age we live in, it can be easy to turn to our iPhones or our work laptops for something as simple as time. I prefer options that lean on the side of classic and timeless. Wearing my first watch ever, I’m excited to add Grayton to my collection as a day-to-day staple and to style with all of my favorite pieces. Having never worn a watch before in my life, I wasn’t quite sure which style I would gravitate towards. I knew I wanted something that would not only be comfortable, but also true to me. I selected Grayton’s Automatic Watch with White Silver Dial and a Brown Croco Embossed Leather Strap all with rose gold detailing. This beautiful timepiece is one that I know will last with me forever and I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with next for their collection. Readers, do you like the way I styled this with my outfit? What details do you love in the watches that you own?
