So Fresh and So Clean

I know on Yow Yow! we’ve been all about millennial pink, but I cannot resist something as white and as clean as this Nike Dualtone Racer. I would have a panic attack getting even a smudge of dirt on it or even wearing it outdoors, but we would manage. This Flyknit reminds me so much of my Oreos and will be available to the masses starting July 7th! I know the 4th of July isn’t necessarily a holiday that involves gifts, but if you’re looking for an excuse… why not? You can buy this pair on Titolo for $115 USD.

When You’re Northwest

Jacket + Leggings  – Aritzia / Hoodie – American Apparel (RIP) / Sneakers – Nike

While most locals would say that gloomy days in the Bay Area are in the worst, I kind of welcome it! It reminds me of home and instead of feeling unbearably hot all day, I can layer up and stay cozy all day long. This outfit that I wore this day was so completely Northwest of me and we didn’t hate it. I bought this American Apparel hoodie back when I was in high school and still wear it to this day. I’m also never going to let this jacket go. You’ve all seen this a million times.

Nike Roshe Two Breathe

Wow, aren’t these just a vision? I’ve never seen anything so perfect and my own feet are just calling for these right. now. If you’re looking for a summer sneaker, it’s going to be this one. The blend of pink to orange ombre is stunning and we’re so in looooove! These are currently being sold for about $130 USD and you can learn about purchasing opportunities at the source below.

Shadow and Light

Sweater and Skort – Aritzia / Sneakers – Nike

At my old workplace the sun used to hit our building at the most perfect time giving us all of the shots we needed. I love this outfit because I feel like I paired something a little bit non-traditional. We love the black and white of course and not only is it apparent in the sweater and skort, but we doubled down with it in my Nike Flyknits. It’s the perfect combination of girly and “sporty.” That’s in quotations because we all know I’m not very sporty, right? This sunlight is also making my hair look like a fiery orange, which is great for a shot and ONLY a shot because we could never have this look longterm.

Nike Air Max 95 Candle

Stop what you’re doing. Look at this candle. BLESS this Nike candle and its existence. This is the greatest thing I have seen all day.

Now only if we could find a cute little holder for it to sit on…and of course, never light it ever.

Air Max Day actually falls on March 26th and to commemorate this special day, WHAT THE SHAPE released this amazing piece. These candles are available in pink, yellow, and white. We’ll take all 3, please. If you’d like to be the owner of this, you can visit their Facebook page to make a purchase.

Nike’s Air Presto Ultra “Lemon”

Are these not the most darling Nikes you’ve ever seen?! They are the perfect shade of “Lemon Drop” and because they are so sunshine-y, we’re naturally gravitating towards these. Fun fact: my nickname from my best friend used to be Funshine (after the Care Bear!) Now, I’m not saying that it will be easy pairing these with outfits, but they certainly will add a whole lot of spunk to them. It really wouldn’t stop me from purchasing them.

“Lemon” will be sold for about $160 USD.

Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit in “Multicolor”

Our Nike Flyknit love affair continues! If you’re wondering why there has been an increase in Flyknit posts recently it’s because of two things: 1) I own a pair and every day I can’t imagine my life without them and 2) I’ve been following the blog Hypebae for the past few months after following its brother site Hypebeast for years. Hypebae is the one that keeps me up to date on all of the new releases and every time I see a new announcement I pretty much throw my wallet across the room away from me to avoid what could be a dangerous situation – a growing collection of sneakers.

Now multicolor is not exactly a shade that I gravitate towards, but how GOOD do these look?! They aren’t over the top and in a way even though they are an eclectic mix of threads, it still feels very minimal. These are gorgeous. These are now being sold for $150 USD.

Pink is in the Air

Happy February! Now I know it’s only Day 1, but already I’m taking notes and saving all things pink that catch my eye. If we’re being honest though, we probably started this last week. We’ve always loved the month of February and while we like to proclaim that we’re not as girly as everyone thinks, we typically throw that out when we get to this month. I noticed these yesterday and have had it up on my tabs all day as if I keep coming back to it on my breaks to debate if I’m going to purchase them or not. Believe it or not, this pair of LunarEpic Flyknit Low 2’s are not for Valentine’s Day and instead were designed to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th! There’s no set release date yet, but Hypebae insists that it will hit Nike retailers very soon!

Nike Classic Cortez in Pink

We’re not one to be all girly on this blog, but don’t these look like a d r e a m?! I haven’t been able to take my eyes off of these all week because they remind me of… ice cream? ;) I like that these are sporty, but functional and they are girly because they are pink, but they stand out and bring a little bit of edge to them. We are in need. In case you’re wondering what the exact color is for these sneakers, it is “Pearl Pink.” It was described on Hypebae as, “It colors the upper like a ballet slipper with a dual-colored midsole – or like Neapolitan ice cream.” I swear to you I thought this looked like ice cream before I even had a chance to read that line though.

These are being sold for $110 USD.

Seattle Girl

screen-shot-2017-01-21-at-3-10-22-pm

Sub Pop Sweatshirt / Leggings – Aritzia / Cap – Urban Outfitters / Sneakers – Nike

This morning we woke up feeling both panicked and with a weight off our shoulders. It’s fitting that in our queue this was the next outfit that we would highlight. Even though this wasn’t recent, I remember how I felt on this day like it was yesterday. Simply weightless and so happy. We may not be 100% right now, but I’m really looking forward to getting back to this.

On the outfit: We’re really feeling that sporty casual look lately. It’s funny because you would’ve never caught me in an outfit like this in college, but as an adult, you just don’t need to dress up every single day. Sometimes you want to be comfy and cozy and believe it or not – Nikes can transform an outfit from sloppy to chick almost instantly.

Seattle’s Summer

screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-9-41-04-pm

Whenever I return home, I never feel like I have enough time. In a perfect world, I would spend every summer in Seattle and then elsewhere for the other seasons! I spent a week this past June like I always do and we’re now sharing some of the photos from our trip. If some of these look familiar to you (because you’ve seen these shots before) it’s because I basically will do the same kind of thing on every trip. We know what we like, obviously! Now if only we could get back there more often…

^^ I will tolerate sushi in the Bay Area, but we all know that it doesn’t exactly compare to Seattle. And even though my go-to place looks like a club inside, the food is 100. This is at Wasabi on 2nd Ave!

Nike Air Max 90 Premium in “Wolf Grey”

Wow, I definitely don’t think I’m cool enough to pull these off, but when you have a name like “Wolf Grey,” how do you pass something like that up?! These are beautiful. I want to touch them. They look sort of like mermaid scales or reptile scaleds, but are they soft? Doesn’t it look like they’ve got some padding to them? I don’t care too much for the clear transparency thing that’s happening near the heel, but it’s not a deal breaker for me. The all grey look is niiiiice. Also, they did a great job pairing it with that shade of denim.

These are going to be sold at approximately $179.90 in US dollars.

Who’s getting these?

A Chambray Deep-V

screen-shot-2017-01-05-at-3-35-46-pm

Choker – Gift / Top – Aritzia / Pants – Uniqlo / Sneakers – Nike Flyknit / Sunglasses – Kate Space

Well! We got a little ambitious with our deep-v over the summer! In a previous post, we wore this with a beige tank top from Aritzia and while we were in Seattle decided to opt for without. We were fortunate that everything ended up being okay, but I did realize I felt a little bit more exposed than I usually do and no matter how hot the temperatures are and how badly you may want to pull off a deep-v, it’s certainly not for everyone! I did, however, like pulling off this athleisure look – these Uniqlo jeggings work with just about everything. For this day that I was in Seattle, this outfit was perfect for all of the activities we did and all the places we went.

Nike’s Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Mid in Dark Green

This is a very long name for a sneaker. When I saw these on Hypebeast today, I couldn’t take my eyes off of them! For one, we’ve been obsessed with our Oreo Flyknits since the day that we got them and we’d take them in every color and style if we could! We feel very drawn to the dark green though because you know…northwest, but also how good does this look against the leather? It’s the perfect combination of soft and delicate with something that’s a little bit more rough around the edges. We’ll take one pair of these, please! Now… to come up with $185.00.

Our Favorite Looks of 2016

Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 9.05.47 PM

Tank top – Abercrombie & Fitch / Chambray shirt – Madewell / Skirt – Brandy Melville

It’s way more fun to share your 12 favorite outfits from the year instead of the ones that just flopped, right?! We don’t always get it right, but luckily the shame of an outfit gone wrong usually only lasts a day. #blessed that my coworkers are always there to give me that immediate feedback. On the upside, I love the outfits that I’ve selected as my favorites for the year. We love that some of these outfits are ones that we’ve worn more than once and have recycled with other items from our closet to make them more versatile. And if there’s one thing that we appreciate more this year in these outfits than the ones we ended up hating – it’s that “less really is more.” Thanks Ma.
