We recently spent a cold, winter day immersed in spring styles at Atlanta Market. Read on for our behind-the-scenes look at S/S 15!Continue Reading
There it is, y’all. The crisp, chill in the air has arrived and we couldn’t be more excited… Excited to update our closets with cool weather essentials! Keep it simple, Sally. All you need are these fall essentials:
Solid long-sleeve tops for layers under blazers and vests:
Faux leather leggings are an absolute must. Pair with heels and a top for a night out or boots for running errands.
While we’re on leather… we ALL need a solid leather jacket. They’re so versatile. Like literally go with everything.
Last, but certainly not least… boots. These babies are at the top of our list right now:
How are you updating your closets this Fall!?Continue Reading
Out for a Sunday stroll among the beautiful old buildings in Jekyll Island’s historic district. A ten-mile bike ride followed…not the wisest of moves.
Normally we go for juxtaposition of shape in our outfits: flowy top with skinny jeans, fitted tank with breezy wide leg pants, etc. But we think this BCBGeneration flutter top paired with BCBGeneration flutter shorts kinda WORKS. Of course, defining your waist with a belt (L’s FAVORITE, also shown here) is key. Photos taken on Jekyll Island, Georgia.Continue Reading
One of the highlights of our trip to MAGIC was our stop at the Amika Braid Bar at BCBGeneration. We just couldn’t resist the offer to get new hair after a long plane ride. And seriously, what’s better than someone playing with your hair? NOTHING.
Super-talented hair and makeup artists Erica Preus and Mireille Bertrand gave us each a new braid. L got a double braid into a fishtail, and J got a sweet little braid and a few curls.
We love the Amika products – especially the nourishing mask – and we highly recommend them. You might have received a sample in your Birchbox! If you didn’t (or even if you did!), comment on this post and you could win a few Amika samples! Good luck!

GAH, we are ready for fall weather. We saw so many cute fall pieces in Vegas – can’t wait for the temperatures to drop a little so we can start wearing them! Our top five fall trends:
1. Burgundy – Every season has an “it” color, and this fall it’s burgundy. This pretty shade looks great with black, brown, camel and gray. It also works well with other jewel tones like cobalt.
2. Moto Boots – Moto boots are replacing equestrian styles (which we still LOVE, don’t get us wrong) as the preferred footwear for fall. We fell in love with these two boots at Rocket Dog. BTW, we’re going to be seeing a lot this olive/taupe color (middle) this season.
3. Leather – It feels weird to call leather a trend, because classic leather bombers and pencil skirts ALWAYS feel right to us. What’s new this season is leather on unexpected pieces, like on this cream t-shirt and fisherman’s sweater.
4. Sweatshirts – This casual, comfy piece was EVERYWHERE at the show. We saw everything from basic grey numbers to sweatshirts emblazoned with novelty graphics, lace and sequins. You can wear these pieces just about anywhere, but be sure to keep the rest of your outfit polished. Skinny jeans, short boots and a sleek ponytail work perfectly.
5.Midi Lengths – Okay, this trend will take a little getting used to…but we’re kinda loving it. Midi length – somewhere between knee length and maxi length – feels really fresh right now. Still not sure? Check out this midi tutu at BCBGeneration. Eeeek!
YAY for the weekend!Continue Reading
Our pics are finally uploaded…and we’re ready to share our favorite images from our MAGIC trip. Overall, the trip was a success (though neither one of us felt 100%). We stuck to our trends list (more on that Friday!), only got on the wrong bus ONCE, and even squeezed in a little R & R before we hopped on the red-eye back to Atlanta.
Get excited for some nail polish inspiration tomorrow, followed by our Top Five Fall Trends on Friday. Happy Hump Day!Continue Reading
