It’s always frustrating to freshen up in the shower and then step into the sticky city streets. New York City is magical, there’s no doubting that, but it’s also known for its stink and slime. We’re not afraid to admit that the summer months become an epic battle against personal hygiene and odor, specifically for me, Abigail. I swear sometimes Emily doesn’t sweat. She might be an alien, but I’ll save that for another blog post. I’m always envious of those girls that smell fresh out of the shower, even when I know they’ve been out for hours. It’s always baffled me, but I think we’re about to one-up them.
We found and fell in love with this new Caress Adore Forever™ body wash that has a 12-hour fragrance release, which is perfect for the warmer days ahead. We opted for a honey vanilla scent, mainly because of the edgy black bottle. Every time you touch your skin, it will activate a burst of perfume. In other words, next time we attend a summer soiree, and Mr. Handsome rubs our arm, he will get a wave of feminine fragrance and probably fall in love. We’re ready to leave a “scentsual” lasting impression.

Once we read Pimm’s and absinthe, we were drawn in. The best and probably scariest part of this drink is that it tastes super healthy, because of the carrot juice. You definitely get the feeling you’re not actually sipping on alcohol… you’ve been warned. Plus, paper umbrellas, fancy straws, and plastic ladies? This drink wins.
We wear our leather jackets a bit too often, so this time we switched up our leather basics. I wore this leather zip up shirt (backwards) opened up with a simple grey tee underneath and black skinnies. Emily sported this adorable/badass leather dress with a belt to give it some shape, and the wide brim hat we just can’t get enough of. What leather pieces are you styling with this season?
Many thank you’s to the team at Dune London for introducing us to your lust-worthy footwear. There isn’t much that will get us to a store at 8:30am, but one thing is SHOES. Emily and I both went for some open toe platform sandal heels for the Spring and Summer. We’re actively trying to steer clear of black, because let’s be honest we own enough. We selected these beautiful retro styles, and fulfilled our desperate need of a white and red go-to heel. We highly recommend checking out their NY flagship at Broadway and Spring! (The price points are a breath of fresh air.)
“It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day!” Finally, hittin’ the high 60’s here in New York and we’re soaking it all in. Abigail went for a retro look with this red bandana headband and high waisted denim. All she’s missing is a gang of Pink Ladies and a boyfriend with a hot rod.
Sadly, I don’t think my torn up jeans are enough to get me into the Pink Ladies… one day. I went for simple and relaxed in our new boyfriend jeans from Articles of Society, and the most amazingly light weight tee from Brandy. Enjoy the weather everyone!
I’m going crazy for coladas! This cool cocktail from Bonnie Vee was super delicious and just what I’ve been looking for to get my in the Spring state of mind. I love the way these ingredients complimented one another. The Mezcal and the tiki bitters… yum. Perfectly topped with nutmeg and cloves. Important notice: they will be making this in a slushy version in the warmer weather. Your welcome.
Abigail was kickin’ it 90’s style on our rooftop in this denim hoodie. It’s all about making a casual look unique. This could totally be a Volcom ad… if she were in all Volcom, but still. You feel the vibes.
This is my super preppy Connecticut look! We went to Abigail’s Grandmother’s for Easter Sunday, so I tried to dress the part. Definitely not my normal style, but it’s fun to step out of your comfort zone every once in a while.
Our twist on black and white basics. I went for a french school girl vibe, incorporating strips and overalls. Perhaps my bright yellow clutch could double as a lunch box? Emily wore this fuzzy sweater with attached blouse skirt and her trusty vegan leather leggings. When we get tired of our tee shirts and ripped denim, these are good alternatives.
Why is it that when it’s 63 degrees I decide to wear a jacket, hat, and leather pants?! Stupid. Can’t complain though, I’m considering rooftop tanning ‘cus I’m tired of being so pale that I’m almost green. My vibes today were based on the color merlot, and Emily kindly tied our looks together with her burgundy bag. She went for 90’s cool with a basic white tee and vintage style blue jean overalls.
This tasty treat has so many of my favorite ingredients. So, I was psyched when the fellas at Bonnie Vee asked us our thoughts on the cocktail. This fruity concoction is perfect for Spring/Summer, and it will taste even better (if possible) while watching movies on Monday nights in the Bonnie Vee garden. Definitely one of the best fruity drinks I’ve tasted. It truly blends seamlessly. On a side note, doesn’t the orange look like a PacMan in this photo?
