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

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

Spring-like Florals

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

Jo Malone London

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

Ruffles + Print

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 heelsREAD 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. 😉

Brands We Love: Sézane

New Darlings - Minimal Classic Fashion

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. 🙂

What are some of your favorite fashion brands?

What’s Your Casual?

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.

New Darlings - Fall style with Hush Puppies

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 Jester for him and Melodi Langdon for her, were so comfy for running errands afterwards and making a dent in some of our holiday shopping.
