Literally obsessed with Dumbo lately. We keep going to One Girl Cookie to warm up, drink delicious coffee/tea, and lust over all the adorable desserts. It’s the perfect spot to meet with friends or shield yourself from the harsh wind that comes off the water. Abigail and I braved the gusts to snap some photos of our slouchy layered looks. I rocked my new ASOS faux-fur… again. It’s SO warm! I wrapped a flannel around my waist because well let’s be honest when do I not have Kurt Cobain on my mind, (swoon.)
Abigail went with sleeker black layers with killer combat boots. Her gray Hue leggings may be warmer than my jacket… they’re incredible and so deceptive. They’re the perfect piece to add dimension to an otherwise all black ensemble.
Let’s just say we’ve been to this holiday pop-up bar twice now. How can we deny the two things we love most – the holidays and pop-ups! Truly adore their wrapping paper tables and walls, and Santa Claus drink menus. This time we opted to test out a warmer concoction involving rum, fruit juice, and coconutty goodness. Make sure you swing by this magical bar before it’s gone on Dec 23rd. (Go on the early side to avoid crowds!)
Today was a day of holiday errands. We dropped holiday cards in the mailbox, and picked up gift certificates at restaurants for friends. Ended up in McCarren Park by the end of the afternoon, and basked in the 50 degree moment. Emily rocked her new ASOS bow tied blouse that we’ve been on the hunt for for years. This one was a much more affordable option than most runway alternatives. She kept things detail oriented with a mirror strapped clutch. We love bags with a knuckle strap. I went for a more casual everyday vibe, aka all black everything. I spiced it up a little with this HOMIES graphic tee from Reason Clothing. These velvet leggings from HUE are all I want to wear in the Winter, and everyone asks me where I got them. Ridiculously comfortable and on point for the holidays. I made sure to add a metallic flare with my aviators and handbag. Can’t blend in to the crowd!
I had two people ask me last week to make them a sex playlist. I don’t know if that’s a compliment or not, but I’ll take it as one. My ears are ever-intrigued while watching television, or listening to Spotify to see what’s new and different. I want to cater to the people who do not want to listen to Drake or Marvin Gaye in the bedroom (no hate.) I selected a few artists, and ironically only one group is from the US. However, if you know me, it makes a lot of sense that I’m listening to non-American music. Here are my top 7 pics as of now, starting from sensual and sultry, to more erotic and aggressive. In other words starting from Marissa and Ryan, to Marissa and Volchok – hey, OC fans. I promise to keep adding to this list, so feel free to use it as your own.
1) Ed Sheeran – Make It Rain
2) Kyla La Grange – Cannibals
3) Chet Faker – Gold
4) Tiësto – Kaleidoscope feat. Jónsi
5) Ellie Goulding – Under The Sheets (Jakwob Remix)
We were going to attempt to snap some photos of our outfits on the way to our Holiday card photoshoot, but it was WAY too cold. So, we just shot inside with the Christmas backdrop. I guess our looks are a bit more emo than festive, but at least we weren’t purple from the temperature. I can’t even begin to explain how obsessed I am with these overalls. I feel like a big kid in them I think it’s important to note how big of steps I’m making. This is the first turtleneck I’ve owned since like 2nd grade. I’m starting to get into this dressing for the weather scheme.
Abigail looked like she was shooting a hip hop music video in Brooklyn… and it’s awesome. She went for a super slouchy look with cool details like the sheer paneling on the pants and spikes on her beanie. Abigail and I were twinning out a bit, but you can never go wrong with black, white and a red lip.
It’s that time of year where nordic is making it’s way back into the front of our closets. I picked up these adorable knit shorts this past weekend to add to the collection. Although, I can’t commit to that much print so I opted for loose black layers and necessary tights! Tossing on a few bold accessories like this ultra warm hat, sky high thigh-highs, berry colored clutch and this major metal necklace. Just to make sure people didn’t think I was going soft with such feminine extras I added my favorite dark purple lipstick. So you all know that I’m still badass………… don’t comment on that.
Abigail went with black layers and seemed to be favoring Zara today. Leather pants are the perfect way to shield from the chilling winds, and you can never have enough. I love that this style is different from the normal skinny look, and has a bit of shape to them. Thanks to DSW for sending us these new black stilettos. The zipper detail is everything, and it went so perfectly with Abigail’s zipper heavy jacket. As you can see there is a mysterious man videoing in one of Abigail’s shots. Stay tuned for our special holiday webisode coming soon.
Are you one of those will do anything for chocolate people? This is your drink. You can find it at Miracle on 9th Street, the cutest holiday pop up bar we’ve ever seen. The quaint space is fully doused in festive decor. They went all out, and it totally got us in the swing of the holiday season. For those of you who celebrate Hanukkah, they’ve got you covered. This drink, which you can drink accordingly in the Hanukkah room, is a chocolate lovers dream. Super strong taste, without sensing much of the alcohol. BUT believe me, it’s in there! To quote a wise man, “we elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.” -Will Ferrell, Elf. Words to live by right there. Hence my excitement when I saw maple syrup as one of the other delicious ingredients. Don’t forget this drink comes with a side of more gelt. De-lish.
Our first snow flurry! (Sorry, we missed the Thanksgiving blizzard, hahaha.) We both had similar thoughts for today’s #ootd… wide brim hats and fur. Emily went for a neutral palette, and is perfectly embodying a Kate Moss Winter outfit. So excited about this new ASOS faux fur jacket that came in the mail. Shout out to Angela Roi, our new fav do-good handbag line.
I’m always attracted to red. Isn’t there some proven fact that the color red makes your heart beat faster? I guess I just love turning myself on. Thank you to Christine of My Style Pill for passing along this beautifully bold wide brim hat from Old Navy. We’re lusting over it.
Look what we got our hands on! If you’re trying to get into the super secretive Red Bull NYC #LESbeat party this Thursday night, follow @wanderlustgirls on Instagram, and comment on the photo! OPEN BAR ALL NIGHT, AND SURPRISE CELEBRITY MUSICAL PERFORMANCES!!!
(Giving away two pairs of tickets. Scratch off strip for location.)
Abigail and I both opted for berry hues for todays looks. I went with my new red vinyl skirt, which is the perfect amount of shine for holiday parties. Although, done incorrectly could be a bit Pretty Woman-esq. I’m also hitting the streets with my new Sam Edelman over-the-knees… they’re practical because they keep more of my legs warm on these 27 degree days… at least that was my justification for buying myself yet another Christmas present. I’m glad to inform you all that the search for larger than life ear muffs is over thanks to a little shop in Canada and a loving boyfriend.
It was all in the details for Abigail. The embroidery on this adorable Aqua coat or the studs on our lust-worthy booties. Keeping with the berry theme she added this Angela Roi bag that we picked up from Creeds Collective. Roi’s bags give back to so many different causes, purple is alzheimer’s, a cause near and dear to us. Finally, she glammed it up with a faux-fur stole with blue and black fur and some major blue sunnies. Are you all as obsessed with these deep berry colors for the holidays as we are?
