All Black + Shadow Puppets

Blouse – Madewell / Pants – H&M / Cardigan – Aritzia / Hat – Nordstrom

Remember how we said in our last post that we were getting a little experimental with our outfits back in the winter? This is definitely one of them. I considered not even sharing these horrid outfits, but then I thought you know what – we all make fashion mistakes sometimes and it’s okay. Much of my closet these days is full of blacks, whites, and neutrals and on this day I was wanting to have an all black moment. Instead, I came off looking like a child star on Star Search with this get up. Also, why am I wearing all black when it’s a perfectly sunny day? It’s all just pretty bad. These pants also look similar to the ones I wear by Uniqlo, but these are actually a very old pair from H&M that aren’t as fitted. After this wear, we decided we had to get rid of these too :( Also, can you see the shadow puppets? My friends think they are pretty funny.

Sometimes You Just Want To Be A Girly Girl

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 10.33.47 AM

Chambray Shirt – Madewell / Tulle Dress – H&M / Booties – Munro @Nordstrom

The next few outfits after this one are what I call my experimental period. You’ll start to notice soon that I was really testing the waters and pushing the boundaries on some of the outfit combinations I was putting together. Not all of them always worked, but at least we now have the photographic evidence on why they didn’t and we won’t try them again :)

On this particular day, I just really wanted to incorporate this tulle into my outfit. Every day, I saw it hung up on my closet and thought well, if I’m not going to wear it, I should get rid of it. I was determined to find a place for it though so I put on the dress (which I only wore once for Halloween for a princess costume) and put my chambray shirt over it tying it in the front. This was my most girliest outfit yet. It’s not that it was a terrible ensemble – it wasn’t – but it also didn’t feel like me. Because the top half of the dress is done up with sequins, I was itchy and uncomfortable all day. The tulle is also VERY sheer, but luckily for us – we avoided what could have been a massive wardrobe malfunction. All in all… lesson learned and now that we’ve made an outfit work with the dress, I think we can safely say that it is time to retire it.

Side Action

Hat – Nordstrom / T-shirt – Madewell / Cardigan – Oak + Fort / Skirt – Brandy Melville

I think this outfit will probably go down in history as being one of my favorites! What I love about this look is that it incorporates a lot of what fall reminds me of. Funny though cause this photo was actually taken during the winter time, but I love that there’s clearly a color scheme to this and a handful of different textures along with the color black at both the top and bottom of the outfit. I’m pretty proud of this one! Fall/winter in California is nothing complex – sometimes all you need is a light sweater and that’s why this outfit just works very easily. It’s not uncommon to have bare legs during this time of the year either. This look would definitely not work in Seattle during the winter time.

Wedding Mondays

Every Sunday, I hold my breath a little bit just hoping that there’s going to be a wedding video from the previous week that we can share with everyone. Last Sunday, as I was going through my usual roundup, I was really disappointed to find that there wasn’t even one that I loved. In fact, they didn’t even come close. Luckily for me though, I stumbled upon one last night – and I really needed a good one because I was going to see Jennie today while in Seattle.

What I love about this video even though there’s no dialogue, it looks like you’re watching a perfect film. I love the shots that were captured and her two-part dress and the way they made this wedding very Mexican themed to highlight something that was special to them, but that it took place in Palm Springs! I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a wedding video from Max and Molly Films, but I am VERY excited about them.

Yup, I’m in love with her bridesmaids’ dresses as well. To view the rest of the feature, click here to visit Green Wedding Shoes!

Sunday Uniform

Screen Shot 2016-06-19 at 2.59.15 PM

Cardigan and Scarf – Oak + Fort / Leggings – Aritzia / Sneakers – Nike Flyknits

We don’t like to get particularly dressed up on Sundays since these are usually our days for getting errands done and for hardcore chillin’ but I found myself up in San Francisco on this Sunday doing a hangout with Mandi when we stumbled across this color block set-up. I’m convinced that I lived up there, we’d have amazing photos for our Instagram all the time, instead, we just get one a week. As I mentioned in a previous post earlier this week, I’m obsessed with these sneakers and I will pretty much pair them with any outfit not just my on-the-go outfits.

Beauty for Breakfast Pt. 27

Screen Shot 2016-06-12 at 11.51.04 AM

When it comes to scents, I can never really make up my mind. The last time I did have a signature scent, it was Coach! But then it got discontinued, which is why we found ourselves back at Sephora again trying a dozen samples and trying to put our finger on the next purchase. I was between Chloe’s Love Story and one other one that I can’t seem to remember right now, but what I love about “Love Story” (besides the fact that it reminds me of that Taylor Swift song) is that it’s very light, romantic, and has just a hint of fruitiness/floral. Fun fact about myself: Unless I absolutely can’t live without the scent, I always buy it in rollerball form. Why?

  • They actually last a very long time!
  • If you get tired of it eventually, you know that you can always buy another one after
  • They’re more inexpensive, but more bang for your buck (at least in my opinion!) They are usually between $18-$22.
  • Super easy to put on. Pretty straightforward. I don’t even have to explain this to y’all.

So this is what we’ve been wearing since January and we’re pretty much in <3 with it.

A Collection Part 45

Interestingly enough, we don’t have a lot of thoughts to share about this A Collection Part post. The last 3 months have been a blur, but a good one. I think we’ll have some thoughts that we can share tomorrow that we’re building up, but for now let’s just enjoy these.

Proud Owner:

Screen Shot 2016-06-11 at 2.36.08 PM

Kevin earned HUGE points at Christmas this year when he gifted me these Nike Flyknit Racers! They are some of my favorite pair of shoes that I currently own and I wear them all the time. I remember thinking that Kevin was cray when he urged me with these very specific instructions:

  • When taking off your shoes, you need to untie the laces
  • When putting on the shoes, you need to lace them up yourself every. time.
  • ie) there’s no slipping in of the foot or slipping it out because the threading is so delicate that you don’t want to run the risk of ripping them

I love the shoes so much that I was so scared of anything ever happening to them so ofc I listened to what my older brother had to say. They are the most lightweight pair of shoes I own and funny enough, after I wore them to work a few times, two of my coworkers went out and purchased their own flyknits as well.

You’re welcome.
