Slowly, but surely we’re stepping outside of denying that we’re transitioning to fall. Just… you know, let us get there on our own time. ;)
After all the posts we’ve written on the many sneakers we’ve been lusting after the last few months, I figured it was finally time to create an actual series for it. Who knew that there could be so many variations of millennial pink in existence? What I love about this pair is the pink/white combo, but more importantly – these laces! The textures in the sneaker are also a main highlight for me. My very first pair of PUMA’s actually were partially suede so seeing these feels like I’m paying homage to them in some way. The asymmetrical look of the Tsugi Blaze make these such a versatile pair.
They are currently being sold on Titolo for $129.90
For the last few months, we have been jotting down some of our favorite sneaker releases (mainly from Nike!) and while we think we’re going to take a plunge on one of them, another release always turns everything upside down. How is a girl supposed to decide when you’ve got all the hue of millennial pink?!
It’s a tough decision and the gist of this is – I’m not about to make a decision now. This metallic Nike Air Max 97 Ultra though is something out of a dream. Have you ever seen anything like this. I’m mesmerized by all of the maroon bands and imagine that it’s a pair that feels so smooth to the touch. The official color is “Metallic Mahogany” and you can swipe these from Titolo for $220 USD.
Rains Jacket – $125
Don’t worry, we’re still trying to enjoy as much of the summer as we can and for those that live in San Francisco, you know it isn’t very long. The changing of the seasons is always so exciting for me though! I’m very fortunate that I’ve lived in areas that experience all four of them. Imagine if you had to wear the same wardrobe year round? The swapping in and out is really the best part, wouldn’t you agree?
If I could shop at one place for the rest of my life, it would be Aritzia. I have a good relationship with the retailer and even more so with the ladies down at The Valley Fair shopping mall! S/O to the ones that always bring me the best pieces that I always end up buying. <3
As we head into fall, I’m already thinking about how to revamp my wardrobe especially one that is appropriate for the girl now living back in the city again. Here are my favorite picks, but don’t be alarmed – some of them aren’t just “fall” specific.
It wouldn’t be a normal week at Yow Yow! if we didn’t have some sort of sneaker coverage, right? I’ve been thinking about my loyalties this week because I grew up on Nike, but more recently, I’ve been daydreaming about adidas. It’s kind of like that love affair that came out of nowhere. Over the weekend, I also downloaded the adidas All Day Fitness app which has transformed not only my mornings, but um… my life? With my time back not commuting, I actually end up waking up around the same time just out of habit, but instead I’m using this time working out before I head into the office and the All Day app helps me do that. I want to get into more of this, but we’ll have to save that for another post because right now, I’m all about this sneaker.
The adidas Originals Stan Smith Primeknit now comes in this very cool “Semi Flash Orange.” Subtle, but just enough color to pop! Oh my goodness it looks so cozy, I just want to cuddle up with it now and you know, have them at home right next to my Nike Flyknits. ;) We kid. They would be on opposite ends of the room.
We’ve got the only shoes you need for the rest of the year. Why buy one pair when you can have two? Converse’s “Triple Black” Chuck Taylor Pack is being released tomorrow and while this is very exciting news… a part of me is wondering why there isn’t a 3rd style getting involved as part of the “triple!” The two styles come in both ’70 Hi and Ox and it is completely covered in a perfect matte black.
The Ox and Hi will retail for $48 USD and $78 USD respectively. Select retailers like HBX will stock the pack on July 21.
Wow. You need both.
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.
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.
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.
If only we liked working out…! I’m obsessed with these beautiful blush pink sneakers from adidas AlphaBOUNCE. Check out those pink laces! Also, doesn’t it look like these might be shimmering? We definitely don’t need another pair of sneakers and these wouldn’t always work with the rest of my closet, but somehow, we would find a way. These are my favorite pair that I’ve seen so far!
These are being sold for $110 – sounds affordable to me!
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.
It’s almost like they are two different companies. With a menu already offering cherry blossom inspired beverages, Japan is now offering a drink on their menu (for a limited time) called American Cherry Pie Frappuccino. Did you guys catch that? It’s American, but it’s over in Japan and we’re so jealous! Yes, of course we want that pie topper for ourselves. Why does no other American Starbucks offer us a frapp on the same level as this one? If you’re visiting Japan this spring, make sure you drop in (for all of us that can’t) and purchase the drink offered from April 13 to May 16.
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.
I didn’t grow up being much of a camper or an outdoorsy person for that matter. I’m sure none of you are surprised to learn that. However, in college I branched out a bit and went on a few retreats and found myself really enjoying this time to myself in a secluded environment outside of the city. I liked the freedom of being able to do whatever I wanted and being at peace with my surroundings. As an adult, it’s still something I think about and from time to time, I do research retreats for adults. I never had an opportunity to do the 3-5 day silent retreat in college and that is still one of my biggest regrets!
I recently stumbled across “Collective Retreats,” which resembles what we all know today as “glamping,” but reminds me of the experience I once had. It may not be the tent that you grew up with, but it’s okay to think of it as an updated version of it. These tents have a cozy bed inside, wood floors, and a neighboring bathroom in a teepee. Toilet and shower included! I know what you’re thinking, how does this all work? I’m still trying to figure it out myself. Collective Retreats is able to work because they reach out to various landowners that happen to have these wide open private spaces that make for the perfect getaway. The company then turns these into makeshift tent lodges for a small period of time allowing guests to get the desired vacation they are hoping for. Since these plots of land are so large, they often will include anywhere from 5-15 furnished tents, but all within a reasonable distance from each other so that you can still feel like you are on your own. If you decide that you want the company of other retreaters, there is a common shared space for everyone to hang out together…and in which you will receive chef-prepared meals. Camping… just like when you were a kid!
Collective Retreats is currently available in Yellowstone in Vail with plans to expand out to Sonoma, Hudson Valley, and Hill Country.
I’ve spent the last year consistently adding black and white pieces to my closet. I was convinced that color was dead – at least for me! That is… until this week when I discovered all of my favorite must-have wants are coming in shades of baby pink. And I’m not turning away from them. So I’m declaring it – baby pink is making a comeback this year and we are more than a little excited about it. The best part about this shade of pink is that it’s very subtle and if you want to wear a minimally styled outfit with black or white, a little pop of baby pink will do just the trick. Here are my favorite items from this week for our wishlist:
