I can't believe the summer is coming to an end, but our latest fall shipment of hats is really helping curb my depression. I am seriously obsessed with this falls color palette which is a mix of earth tones and neutrals. All you need this fall is a basic tee, ripped jeans, a super cute trench, and a fedora.
Here are some of my favorite styles for the fall.
I was never a lipstick girl until I started to branch out from what I knew lipstick to be, and now I never leave home without it. I was never sure what color to buy or even what brand or vessel was the best. I tried all different kinds from traditional lipstick to the kind you have to apply with a brush. It was a long and hard journey to find the best lipstick but I finally settled on a Nars Lip Pencil that I absolutely LOVE.
When choosing lipstick you should consider the size of your lips. Are they large, is your bottom lip bigger than your top, do you have bird lips, etc. For thinner lips try lighter to medium shades like peach, pale pink, or light beige and opt for a tube lipstick with a brush or tinted lip gloss. Most traditional lipsticks will just provide extra coverage and can cause that "clown" mouth look.
You can also go for a lip liner to add some extra volume and of course a really good lip plumper will go a long way!
For larger lips you can really wear any color. Lip pencils and traditional cream lipsticks work perfectly. During the day opt for a soft pink or neutral and at night try something dark like a burgundy or berry for a sexier look. I love the Givenchy brand lip stick not only does it have a really luxe feel but the colors are beautiful, and my new favorite is the Nars Lip Pencil in Sex Machine.
We live for the weekends, and there is nothing better than wearing pieces that make you feel sexy, but are also comfortable and forgiving.
Brunch on the weekend is a must, but nothing is worse than tugging at your tee because it's getting tighter and tighter with every bite of your entree.
Our idea of a perfect weekend outfit consists of flowy pieces and strappy sandals, booties, or sneakers if you are feeling extra tomboyish.
We love brands like free people, mink pink, indah, and amuse because they all have that bohemian and casual vibe that we crave. A tip when creating your weekend look is to make sure to mix prints and layer jewelry. Palm prints, geo prints, gingham, and stripes are all on trend for Summer 2015.
Here's some inspo to help you curate the perfect look:
We are in love with the carefree gypsy fashion that we saw this year at Coachella. Here are 5 trends that you should be trying to replicate for the summer.

When I was younger my mom used to tell me that "fashion always repeats itself." She swore her wardrobe consisted of peasant shirts, scarves tied around her head, bell bottoms, and leather jackets, but I never believed she could be so cool.
Now that I am older I find myself biting my tongue, and cursing the day I told her she was wrong. Trends come and go, but they always come again. Here are 5 fashion trends that have made a come back.
Overalls: This 90's trend is here to stay for at least another fall season. If you are new to the overall game we advise you to go with a leather pair for a chic and fresh look.
Culottes: Once known as the "skort", it is now back with a new identity. This time around it is a true trouser, and no longer a pant/skirt combo. We are all about this trend for the spring, and love them paired with wedges or flats.
Floppy Hats: We are all about this 1970's trend, and love that it is here to stay. Spring and summer will not be complete without one of these on your head or in your beach bag.
Bohemian Prints: Brands like Novella Royale, Blue Life, Tularosa, and Tigerlily are creating beautiful maxi dresses, skirts, and jump suits in fun and flirty bohemian prints. These prints hearken back to the 70's hippie chick, and are super cute for the spring.
Gingham: This 1950's fad is back again, and can be seen all over the Spring 2015 runway. We are really into this, and can't wait to get our hands on a skirt set in this pattern.
Are you tired of spending your money on the latest "must have" top or bag, and then 5 months later discovering that it went out of style last Tuesday? We urge you to stop shopping at Forever 21, and to stop buying that peplum top from BeBe because you saw it in this month's issue of Lucky magazine. It's important that the 30 something you has a classic wardrobe, and the way to ensure that you have one is to start putting your money into pieces that will carry you through the years.
Don't get us wrong we love a good trend, but when it comes to really going hard on a spree the days of filling a black mesh bag with a 100 shirts and jeans are far behind us, instead we like to invest in well constructed clothing that's made to last. Start building your wardrobe with the following 5 essentials:
A Classic White Tee:
A Hand Bag:
A High Heel Shoe:
Fitted Straight Leg Trousers:
If you live on the east coast then you are feeling tortured and teased by spring, but the reality is that spring is right around the corner, and it's time to revamp your wardrobe. One of our favorite spring trends this year are sneakers and lots of sneakers. Sneakers look super cute with leggings, skinny jeans, shorts, mini skirts, and dresses. We love to travel and sightsee for 10-12 hours a day, so we are extremely excited that sneakers are on trend for spring 2015.
Adidas Stan Smith Shoes: These are all the rage right now and can be seen on the hottest celebrities and bloggers. These retro sneakers look so fresh and so clean clean. Consider yourself lucky if you are able to get your hands on these. Our advice is to get them from the men's section and go 2 sizes smaller than your regular size.
Nike Air Huarache: We weren't so sure how we felt about these until we saw them on Sincerely Jules, our blogger icon, rocking these in Paris. (Check out our previous blog post highlighting fashion blogs we read religiously) These are statement shoes for sure, and come in a wide variety of colors. You can even customize a pair on the Nike website. We love the bright blue color that Jules wears.
Superga High Tops: We snagged a pair of these back in January while walking the floor at Lord & Taylor. Superga's are so comfy and these high top sneakers look perfect with a dress, skirt, or jeans. We love the double zipper detail and distressed sole. We opted for the black and white combo, but this sneaker comes in all black everything and all white.
New Balance 620: Um yes please! We will take every color and every combination of these. These sneakers offer the perfect pop for spring, and are an extremely practical choice. Prices for this style range from $60-$80 depending on where you get them from. J Crew stocks their own exclusive color combinations, but hurry because they are selling out fast.
Nike High Tops: These are such a throw back to the 90's and we love a good retro shoe. The neutral colored combo is beautiful, and comes with a snakeskin texture. This spring is all about the neutrals and white on white so get your wardrobe in order, and cop yourself a pair of these.
