Leather leggings, where have you been all my life? During our time in SoHo we stopped into the Aritzia store on Broadway and I had some fun with their staff, styling a few cold weather looks for NYC. These faux leather leggings, thick knit sweater, and bomber jacket were the perfect pieces to layer with over a plain tee while running around the city that day. Lunch and a sweet treat at Maman hit the spot before shopping around a bit more and meeting with friends for coffee. For the most part it was a pretty laid back day and the chill in the air reminded us why we loved New York this time of year so much. We ended up heading back to Long Island during rush hour for a family dinner, and in true New York fashion dashed from our cab in the middle of bumper to bumper traffic to catch our train. Running through Penn Station definitely brought back some memories for us. Haha! READ MORE
With a new year, comes a new perspective. Something we both decided we really wanted to be conscious of this year is sharing more of those “in-between” moments here on the blog. We chatted a bit about it as far as our home renovation and projects go, but the same goes for fashion and our everyday outfits. Here’s a look at an outfit I wore yesterday for meetings in the city and then lunch and shopping with friends. It was sooo much colder than I remembered NY winters to be, but a few layers kept me warm while running in and out of cabs. READ MORE
Greetings from New York! We’re back on the east coast, spending time with family and friends in some chilly weather. We took the red eye, which is never a fun flight and arrived early yesterday morning, so we’ve just been taking it easy, adjusting to the time difference, and getting some bonding time in with our nephews. We’re heading into the city for some fun today, but here’s a look at some photos we shot before leaving Phoenix. I haven’t worn a heavy print like this in a while (as I’ve been pretty partial to neutrals lately), but I couldn’t pass up this pretty feminine blouse. Blush pink is one of my favorites, and the soft florals with all black felt like the perfect mix for these early Spring-like days in Phoenix. READ MORE
You guys have most likely heard about Jo Malone London…the company is one of those cult beauty (and home) favorites and we were so excited to visit their location here in Phoenix for the first time the other day. We’ve never been ones for big Valentine’s Day celebrations or gifts (last year we got our baking on!) and with one of our goals for the new year being to experience more together, an afternoon at the Jo Malone London Biltmore Fashion Park boutique was perfect. Now, you may think that sounds silly, because it’s pretty obvious we do spend a lot of our time together, but towards the end of the holiday season we realized just how little time we devote to trying new things together for date nights, weekend outings, or even just a different restaurant. Hey, we all fall into our routines, right? So we decided that it would be fun to each pick one new thing to do every month together. A trip to the Jo Malone London boutique, complete with hand massages and learning about their fragrances felt like the ultimate indulgence for a pre-Valentine’s Day outing together. READ MORE
It felt like we were getting a dose of east coast weather for a few days there and this coat, has become my go to for the chillier evenings here in Phoenix. It’s such a classic shape, which I feel like Sézane is quickly becoming known for. I paired it with one of their printed blouses, a tight ballerina-esque bun, and some comfy heels. READ MORE
We’re excited to partner with Hearts On Fire this season and share a holiday party look for him and her. Although we won’t be throwing our own holiday party this year (it just felt a little too crazy with the move), we’re looking forward to attending some get togethers with friends, doing our best Jingle Bell Rock karaoke, and sneaking a kiss under the mistletoe. 😉
A few months back I came across the French fashion brand, Sézane. I guess I was in a bit of style rut, and their clean, classic pieces really spoke to me. I say this often, but I feel like we’re always going through our closets and donating items we no longer use, sharing with family and friends, and minimizing what we actually hold on to. When moving into this house, we knew we weren’t going to have a lot of closet space. Most (if not all) homes from the 30’s didn’t have big closets, it was just a different way of living, so were really selective about what items we packed up to bring to the new place.
Sézane’s pieces are some of my favorite because of their versatility. They feel timeless, and it’s really refreshing to see classic, modest pieces that are cut so well and so flattering.
Here are a few of my currents favorites below. I’ve been wearing the Valentina strapped pumps every chance I get lately. 🙂
How’s everyone’s week going? We are still buried in boxes over here, but are excited to share some photos we snapped last weekend along with another one of our favorite local spots: Desoto Central Market. We don’t visit as often as we may like, but stopped in recently and now we can’t get enough of their avocado toast and warm drinks on the chilly mornings we’ve been having. We were so excited to see the market decked out with all their holiday decor, lights strung everywhere, a twinkling tree by the window and the cutest wreath above the coffee bar.
We kept things casual in denim and matching boots from Hush Puppies. It feels like we always indulge in adding a few new things to our wardrobes during the colder months. Not sure about you guys, but we’re definitely more partial to fall/winter style. Hush Puppies is a company that has been very familiar to me growing up. My mom would always surprise me and my sisters with a new pair of Mary-Janes for the holidays (paired with tights and matching dresses of course), so it’s fun to rediscover a brand later in life and see how styles have evolved. Our casual style is a mix of classic and comfort. Jeans with a bit of stretch, cozy knits, and a classic denim jacket have been our autumn favorites these days. It’s always nice to complete a look with a pair of quality boots. The Roland Jesterfor him and Melodi Langdonfor her, were so comfy for running errands afterwards and making a dent in some of our holiday shopping.

We keep saying, “It definitely was chillier this time last year”. In all honesty, we’re not sure about that, but it really would be great if autumn made an appearance around these parts. We do get lucky with the evenings, being able to embrace boots and long sleeves for a casual dinner date together or late night stroll with Henry before bedtime.
We recently partnered with Teva to style a few looks featuring their boots for fall. We used to think Teva was only for sandals (see some of our favorite socks and sandals looks here), but they have so many other great styles too. We love the Foxy ankle boots and Durban Tall (both in black) for a date night out with skinnies, a feminine blouse for her, and collared shirt for him.
These looks were perfect for our dinner date on Friday. We went to our favorite pizza place downtown, Pizzeria Bianco. We always enjoy ourselves so much there…they have a beautiful patio with little lights strung overhead and the best Margherita pie, which always hits the spot after a long week.
We’ve also had camping on our minds as of late. Maybe it’s our love for the outdoors and brisk weather, but we can’t stop talking about it. Our friends found this awesome new app Turo, which is like Airbnb but for cars. We’ve been eyeing a vintage VW van that would be perfect to pack up with blankets, backpacks, and our cameras, have everyone pile in and hit the road in.
The Arrowood Lux Sneakers (his and hers) are great paired with a flannel, and jacket or vest, with a backpack full of your camping essentials. They are so comfy and we have a feeling we’ll be lacing these up for our next hike up North.

On our last day in Portland we woke up early, grabbed breakfast at the beautiful and delicious Maurice café, and strolled through the colorful leaf lined streets before heading to the airport. We really wish we had more time there with all the amazing people we met, but it just gives us another reason to visit again real soon. Take a peek below at the video we made from our time there with all the awesome makers. We also managed to snag a few clips of our friend Vincent, who is usually behind the camera. 😉 We love creating these videos to look back on and to share with you all — let us know what you’d like to see more of in the comments and be sure to subscribe to see what’s next!
