Weekend Uniform

Not gonna lie, on the weekends we’re pretty bad about getting up and at ’em. We often run around like a couple of chickens with our heads cut off during the week, so our weekends are our time to enjoy our house, cook together, and relax. However, one thing we noticed that helps get our day started is getting up and getting dressed right away. This usually motivates us to get the day started, whether it be running to the grocery store or just feeling ready if we decide to catch a movie or join friends for lunch. READ MORE

Our Beach Favorites 2017


It feels funny to do a “beach favorites” post when there isn’t a beach within 200 miles of us, but hey, we have pools. Ha! This weekend we have some family coming to town and because it’s a bit too hot to sightsee, we’ll probably be hanging around the pool as much as we can.  We’ve rounded up some of our favorite beach essentials from around the web.  Hope you guys are enjoying these (official) first days of summer.  Where are some of your favorite beaches around the country?  We’d love to add one to our list of “places to visit” this summer.

Some New Favorites with Nordstrom Rack

His: The Kooples shirt | Topman jeans | Aldo shoes (similar here) | Coach watch
Hers: Kate Spade dress, watch, and sunglasses (similar here and here) | Steve Madden shoes (similar here)

We are huge advocates for affordable style.  We’ve always believed that dressing well has more to do with fit, quality, and versatility than just picking the “best” brand off the rack and throwing it on.  Every year around this time, we try to add pieces that can be worn in different ways, as layers, or accessories that work for any occasion.  Mixing high and low. It’s definitely more strategic than it looks.  Picking out neutrals, timeless patterns, and comfortable shoes are very important to us.  Nordstrom Rack is definitely not a new kid on the block, but we’re late to the game with discovering just how great the deals are. We often have trouble justifying an expensive watch or bag, so it’s been great to add some new pieces to our wardrobe without feeling guilty. 😉 Here are a few favorites for him and her we’re currently loving…

Our Swimwear Picks: Summer ’17

image via

It’s heating up out there and we are ready to hit the pool here in Phoenix.  There are only two ways to stay cool here in the summer and that’s either staying inside or hanging out at the pool.  While we do spend much of our time indoors, we do try to relax and take a swim when we can.  This summer should be filled with travel, summer gatherings, and lazy days.  Here are some of our favorite swimwear picks from around the web that we’ll be looking to sport this summer.

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!

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

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. 😉

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.
