Formal Nights with Princess Cruises

We’re definitely guilty of indulging in a pajama day on the weekends or opting for a cozy night in, but there’s something to be said about how you feel when you dress up and pull yourself together. Like many we were completely obsessed with Mad Men, and part of the reason why we tuned in each week, aside from how incredibly bad ass Donald Draper was, had to do with the focus on fashion. Dates, parties, baseball games, even flying on plane…people used to simply dress up more for the occasion. READ MORE

Our Favorite: Travel Sneakers

New Darlings Our Favorite Travel Shoes

Aritzia coat | Madewell scarf | Topshop jeans | Gucci bag | Everlane sneakers

We have never been big sneaker people, but once we began planning for this Scandinavian cruise with Princess, and looking at the itinerary (seven cities in eleven days), we knew we’d need some comfy walking shoes. Some of the excursions begin at 7am and continue well into the evening, so heels and structured boots didn’t seem like the smartest choice. We packed a little smarter for this trip, and know that a few of our favorites below will definitely be making it into our suitcase again for our next adventure!

Blushing in Paris

Ah, Paris! We completely fell in love with the city and got super lucky with our Airbnb being super close to so many great cafés and shops. (More details about the apartments coming soon! I know some of you guys are planning trips to Paris, and were inquiring about where we stayed.) We snapped some photos on the way to breakfast at Holybelly one morning, while passing through this pretty square. It was quite windy that day so layers were ideal and gave me the opportunity to bust out this leather jacket that has been collecting dust in my closet. 😉 I toned it down with a pleated blush skirt and feminine off the shoulder top.

Nordstrom Men’s Spring Favorites

Prada shoes | Saturdays NYC sweatshirt | Topman jeans

Spring is in full swing over here and we’re loving these breezy overcast days. We’ve been trying to spend as much time outdoors as we can, as our place is a little stuffy with all the dust, paint, and all the other fun stuff that goes along with a remodel. 😉 We’ve been in and out of the house a lot, and bringing Henry everywhere with us. It’s a lot of excitement for him, and we’re loving having the little guy with us just a little more than usual. Brunch, Home Depot, he’s becoming quite the explorer. Haha. We’re hoping that we’re about a week out from everything being complete, then a deep clean of the house and patio is next on our list.  READ MORE

A Visit to the Sézane Librairie

It’s no secret I’ve been a fan of Sézane for quite some time now. We have had the pleasure of working closely with the brand over the course of the last year and just when I think they can’t get any better, they release a new collection that is innovative yet still somehow retains their classic feel and nod to years past. Their bags and shoes are some of the most well made pieces in my closet and I was thrilled to visit their librairie while we were in Paris.

Sunset at Pont Neuf

Back in the spring of 2011, we were spending a few days in south Florida visiting some family.  The two of us spent an afternoon downtown having lunch and then spontaneously decided to catch a movie.  We had no idea what was playing, nor did we really care too much.  It was one of those days where going to the movies was all we wanted to do.  We have those days quite a bit actually, but there is just something about watching a story unfold, eating popcorn and snacks, tuning out the real world, and getting sucked in to a good film.  We looked at the list of movies playing, and the title Midnight in Paris caught our eye.  We had recalled seeing the trailer a bit before our trip and have loved Woody Allen for years, so it felt like the perfect afternoon date.

Bonjour!

Bonjour! We arrived in Paris two days ago and couldn’t be more excited to be here. Our flight arrived early Thursday morning and we completely embraced the light rain that welcomed us in. It was cloudy and cozy and pretty perfect. On our way to our Airbnb we watched through our cab’s window, as we peeked in on the city’s morning commute…watching children walk to school clutching to their parents’ side and business men and women rush to the subway with a coffee in hand and headphones in. Even in our sleep deprived state, we immediately felt lucky to be here and experience their culture for a few days. READ MORE

A Rainy Day

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone’s been having a good week! We’ve been graced with a few rainy days over here and we’re certainly not complaining. When there is 100% chance of rain in Phoenix, you bust out your umbrella, throw on your rain boots and trench coat, and head out for the day! READ MORE

An Afternoon in SoHo

New Darlings Lifestyle Blog NYC Winter Outfits

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

A Windy Day in NYC

New Darlings Aritzia Winter CoatNew Darlings Aritzia Winter Coat

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
