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

Day to Night Denim

Easy Everyday Outfits for Men
We’re always talking about keeping it simple and classic around here.  Those are two guidelines we try to think of when adding pieces to our small, historic closets.  We don’t have a ton of storage, so we are very mindful with what we bring in.  For menswear, Mr. Porter is my go-to.  They carry everything from grooming to formalwear and everything in between.  Their online space is beautifully curated and we love reading their editorial pieces for inspiration.  We recently partnered together to add a few pieces of menswear for our trip to San Francisco.

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…

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!

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

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.

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

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

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. 😉
