Gorjana

Lauren and I have absolutely been loving simple gold jewelry lately. It pairs well with everything! Not to mention, it always the perfect compliment to the rest of an outfit. One of our favorite brands as of late is Gorjana. They are a quintessential cali-cool jewelry brand that epitomizes simple yet chic gold jewels. Recently available at Nordstrom, Gorjana is well-priced and easy accessible.

Check them out, we’re absolutely WAiSTEDD!

Railroad Stripes

The transition from Winter to Spring has been quite fast here in California! It is going to be almost 75 degrees this weekend! We don’t know about you, but we aren’t ready to give up our Winter style yet. Here is how we both (yes we both own the exact same outfit) like to throw in a little new Spring with our Winter favorites.

It is all really around the striped shift dress. You all know we love a good stripe! Even though you can wear this piece all year round, we are feeling it is very Spring forward right now. Mix in a utility jacket, which is also great all year round, and you have little coverage for the cold nights. I wear this utility jacket with so many different outfits- it is a staple for any wardrobe. Check out the ones at Aritzia for a variety of options.

Happy Wednesday!

Baby Got Back

It’s no secret that 2014 was the Year of the Booty- from J.Lo and Kim K. to Nicki and Beyonce, this year everyone was screaming baby got back! We’re sharing some of our favorite Booty exercises that you can do in your living room (although these pictures were taken outside for the benefit of lighting) in a half hour.We both are always on the go- like many of our readers. It is sometimes incredibly hard to fit a workout in. With this simple, weightless exercises your booty will be in shape in no time.

Regular Squat

Make sure you are sitting backwards and your back is straight.

Check point: knees & shins should be parallel- check to see you can see your toes.

Vegas

For the long MLK weekend I was in Vegas for a few days- such a blast! Every time I go to Vegas I always find myself exploring and finding new, exciting things to try- whether it be restaurants, shopping experiences, clubs or a great bar, Vegas never seems to disappoint. Regardless of if you are the 5th member of the infamous Wolfpack from the Hangover or if you’re a foodie looking for that perfect restaurant, Vegas has it all.

I’ve been to Vegas roughly 5 times in the past few years (a lot of my friends turned 21, okay?) and I’ll be sharing some of my favorite eats, clubs, hotels and other Vegas insights.

Eats 

1. The Henry (Cosmo)- go for brunch and order the French Toast (or go there at 4 am and order the truffle tater tots)

2. Stack (Mirage)- save room for the Jelly Doughnuts for dessert

3. Todd English Pub (Aria)-sliders…

Stay

1. Vdara- my ABSOLUTE favorite hotel on the strip. Located in City Center with Suite style rooms you have the most amazing views. Another perk about the Vdara is there is no casino inside the hotel (yay to no smoke!). Centrally located & great service. I love this hotel, I wouldn’t recommend any where else!

Club

1. Surrender (Wynn)

2. Hakkasan (MGM)

3. Marquee (Cosmopolitan) 

The club scene is generally going to be pretty similar in my mind- I always enjoy places that play good music and have some outside area. If you have a club promoter you are able to work with, do it! Most will waive your cover charge and you won’t have to wait in line.

Other Necessities 

The first time I went to Vegas I wish someone had given me a checklist of essentials to bring on the trip. For example, I didn’t realize what a dry climate Vegas or how much an ATM on the strip would charge me to get cash or how much walking there was to do in Vegas…. those big signs are quite deceptive. Here is a list of things I always bring with me:

1. Chapstick/ lipbalm

2. Pair of Nike Frees

3. Cash

4. WATER (buy it there at the walgreens near Planet Hollywood)

5. Crossbody bag

6. ID holder for Cards, ID & Cash (when you go out)

7. Airborne- the last thing you want is a cold to slow you down!

Hope this helps on your next trip to Sin City!!!

Over the Knee

Hi Everyone, Happy Tuesday!

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.

Pretty, Pointy Pumps

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.
Which pumps are you WAiSTEDD on? Let us know or show us pics of your pumps by tagging @_WAiSTEDD on instagram!!
Happy Wednesday XOXO Danielle&Lauren
