One of my favorite Christmas gifts I received this year was this pair of Steve Madden over the knee black suede boots. I fell in love with these when I walked by them at Nordstrom Christmas shopping for my Mom. The texture is fabulous (Suede is one of my favorite textures) and I love that you can fold them down into a shorter boot for a more casual look.
I had always been worried about wearing over the knee boots because of my height. But paired with a shorter skirt or dress it actually lengthens the legs- shorties rejoice!
You can find these over the knee boots here at Nordstrom. Despite the fact these boots are named after Tyga, I still really like them.
Who is excited the Holidays are here!?! We hope you all had a relaxing Thanksgiving and are having an easy week back. It was SOOO nice having a little break and enjoying the amazing weather. Everyone needs a little time to refresh (and shop- what did y’all get on Black Friday and Cyber Monday??).
Enough about that- this week we are WAiSTEDD on pointy pumps. We are really loving how versatile these shoes have become and what a fashion statement they are. You can wear them with a preppy outfit, or ripped jeans and an oversized sweatshirt. They add sophistication to every outfit.
Recently we have been seeing a lot of great embellishments, colors, and silhouettes. As you can see below, our top 9 picks include some neutrals, metallics, and winter colors. We also threw in a mule pump which still have the pointy toe, but cover the front of the foot which can be more comfortable. For the Holidays we are LOVINGGGG really eye catching metallics. How could you not want to wear those silver pumps below? We think that even these can be considered neutral colors.

Trench Coats are an essential winter piece to have in your closet. We love how a trench can totally complete an outfit in the winter- they are perfect with a scarf, pair of knee highs and beanie.
Trench Coats are essential because they are virtually appropriate for every occasion. You can wear them over a dress for work or out to dinner over a pair of jeans. They are the perfect coat for Fall & Winter! Check out Piperlime, ASOS, Missguided and Zara for affordable and chic trench coats that will work perfectly in your closet!
Happy Wednesday! Do you guys have Thanksgiving plans for tomorrow?? So excited for food & family!
Lauren and I are absolutely obsessed with leopard- which is no secret. We think versatile leopard pieces are absolutely essential in every closet because they serve as a printed neutral. Printed neutrals are few and far between but truly can spice up any outfit.
I love this sweater I purchased from Wilfred Free from Aritzia a while back. It’s such a great print and perfect for layering in the fall. I love pairing it with a white button down (which I wore here), or a light hoodie. I also love the ripped black denim I’m wearing here which I purchased from Hudson- they have the most amazing stud detail on the side. I also love pairing this sweater with a leather mini or shorts in the spring.
As you saw in our recent post “Turtlenecks and Tunics” we are totally crushing on turtlenecks for this time of year! For some reason we always associated turtlenecks with our moms- not to say they aren’t fashionable (they totally are), but these sweaters were something that they would wear. Maybe it’s because we are older, or maybe because we are more mature with our style, but how did we not wear these sweaters before?!?
As you can see from our pictures below, turtlenecks are totally following the oversized sweater trend, which is warm and comfy for the upcoming chilly days. The chunky knits are great with skirts and denim as a stand alone piece or layering over a collared shirt! On the other end, the delicate, thinner turtlenecks are also perfect for layering and can be dressed up a little easier with whatever you want to wear. We really think these are one of the staple items you need for this winter!
We have been seeing turtlenecks all over the place. From Nordstrom and Aritzia, to Gap and Zara, you can find a variety of knits, colors, and fits. Banana Republic has some really cute turtleneck outfits we suggest checking out!
Ok so things have been a little crazy with the holidays right around the corner, but this gloomy, “winter” weather has actually been really nice. Since we are both swamped with work and school, not having it be warm and sunny outside definitely helps us concentrate.
I celebrated my brother’s 21st birthday this weekend and below is what I wore out to dinner, minus the shoes (paired the outfit with my favorite lace up Schutz heels). I was really feeling this long sleeve black dress because it can be dressed up or down. The wrapping at the bottom helps lengthen my legs so they appear a little longer! Since its been cooler, it seemed appropriate to add a fur vest. Not only is it great for warmth, but helped make the outfit more casual. And lastly, my FAVORITE Nike Frees seemed like the perfect shoe to go with this causal, fun outfit. As I said above, adding a heel completely changes the look of the outfit so it really depends on the occasion.
Shearling is this Fall and Winter’s hot new trend and we are ALL about it. Shearling is a great addition to your jackets, vests, boots and even some accessories such as headbands and ear muffs. We love that Shearling gives outerwear a rugged and outdoors feel. It truly is the perfect addition to any winter accessory (not to mention it is totally and completely warm).
We also love the Shearling looks stunning on everything- literally everything. A little pop on your favorite pair or booties, or an outer trim detail on a bag o, Shearling is the perfect fur addition to all your warmer wear pieces. Of all the wonderful Shearling pieces, coats have to be our absolute favorite- from a moto leather jacket with Shearling trim or a simple denim jacket with a chic Shearling collar, they are the perfect investment piece for winter (um, we know what’s on our Christmas List)!
We can’t get enough of this fun trend- share with us some of your favorite Shearling items below!
PS. We both love animals (like a lot, have you seen how many pics we post of dogs on instagram?!?) so we encourage you to buy vegan when you can!
