LOFT recently launched their new brand Lou & Grey, which is a more comfortable and casual line, with soft knits that are perfect for every day. If you follow along with us on instagram, you’ve probably seen some of my favorites by them that I’ve been wearing lately. I was immediately attracted to their easy, yet stylish approach to fashion. They’ve designed some great pieces that you really don’t have to think about, which makes getting dressed (especially during these hot days) super easy. Below you could take a peek at what is currently on my wish list.
We had so much fun over the weekend! We’re finally getting settled back in after our trip to New York and getting some things ready for our move. We’re only moving across town, so it’s not as stressful as when we made the move from NY to AZ two summers ago, but we definitely have a lot more to pack up this time!
It was so nice to have the whole afternoon to ourselves and visit one of our favorite spots for lunch, Phoenix Public Market. When we are home, we are always finding projects to work on or things we need to do. These lunch dates are our favorite way to de-stress and have conversations about all the fun things we want to do in the upcoming months.
Hope everyone is having a great summer so far and staying cool in this heat!
We snapped these photos the other night before heading out on a fun little date night. We felt it was the perfect opportunity to shine the spotlight on our friend Jenn’s handbag line, Soul Carrier. We met Jenn about a year ago at an instagram meet up in Phoenix. We were immediately drawn to her passion for creativity and her huge heart! She was incredibly sweet to invite everyone back to her loft that evening for a get together and to shoot some photos in her beautiful space. Since then we’ve had the chance to get to know her and her amazing company a little better.
She recently launched her kickstarter campaignshowcasing her new collection of handbags entitled, “Conscious Intentions”, which features minimal and classic designs. 25% of funds raised for the campaign will be donated to Crisis Nursery, which is one of Phoenix’s longest serving children’s shelters. Soul Carrier will also be sponsoring a preschool graduation at Crisis Nursery, which will pay for uniforms, backpacks and school supplies for the children. Her handbags alone are beautiful pieces, but the fact that she is incorporating charitable giving in her business model, speaks volumes. View the video below to learn more about her mission. We hope you can check out her campaign and help spread the word about the good she is doing through conscious fashion.
Here’s a fun little round up of some of our favorite shoes for warmer weather, with some easy walking shoes for a day adventure in the sun to a few pairs that can be dressed up for a night out! We’re big fans of neutral colors, especially for the hot AZ summers, plus they’re easy to mix and match in your wardrobe!
Last week we spent a few days in NY, with our time split between the city and Long Island. It was a busy week filled with birthday celebrations, wedding festivities and catching up with friends and family, with a bit of work mixed in. It was the first time we had been back since last July, so we tried to pack in as much as we could in those few short days. It definitely felt like a marathon at times, but we had so much fun revisiting some of our favorite old spots, like the park we got engaged in and our go-to coffee shop, meeting up with friends in the East Village for some tasty treats, and strolling through Chelsea. One thing we definitely underestimated was how drastic the temperature change was. From AZ to NY, temperatures dropped almost 30 degrees and our bodies definitely weren’t ready for it. We’re still nursing some colds we picked up along the way. Wish we had snapped a few more photos, but we really just enjoyed our time catching up on life with those close to us. Until next time New York!
We recently teamed up with the new online shop,Earth & Beauty for a fun style giveaway. When the founder, Stephanie Lim, reached out about styling some of their pieces and explained her journey with the company, we knew right away it was a shop we wanted to get behind. Stephanie is so sweet and they carry so many fun and classy pieces from independent designers all over the world. I quickly fell in love with this printed babydoll style dress for summer…no shocker there. 😉
Earth & Beauty just released so many new arrivals featuring easy neutrals and simple silhouettes (including this cute chambray dress I have my eye on), so we’re pretty excited to be able to offer this awesome giveaway. Enter below to win a $200 gift card to the shop! The giveaway runs until Sunday, June 7th. Good luck!
It’s pretty obvious we love our hats around here. Our hat wall has gotten a little out of control lately with everything from straw fedoras to floppy wool favorites. With temperatures on the rise, we’ve had to trade out some of our favorite black hats to ones with lighter hues and more breathable fabrics. Here are some of our top picks for spring & summer hats to help accessorize with, and hide a bad hair day…or two!
The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is here! We’re pretty excited because you can get up to 40% off so many items for Women, Men, Kids and Home. Yesterday we stopped by one of our favorite locations at Scottsdale Fashion Square and it was already so crowded, with everyone trying to scoop up all the great deals. It was a little too overwhelming for us, so last night we shopped online, cozied up on our living room sofa. We leave for New York in about two weeks, and we’ve had our eye on this bag that would be the perfect carry-on! We put together some of our favorites below for men and women. Just click on the photo to go directly to the product page.
The sale runs through May 31st, with FREE shipping. Happy shopping!
Braids…the obsession continues! From french braids and fishtails, to weaving ribbons and flowers through each strand, it’s a trend that just keeps growing. With summer right around the corner, I’m eager to master some of these pretty styles to keep hair pinned back during those hotter months. Above are some styles that have recently caught my eye.
