(Emily – Dress, Free People. Abigail- Dress, Mark and Estel)
A few weeks ago we went upstate to one of favorite photographers homes and started snapping smokey pics. Needless to say it’s always an interesting shoot with Matt Borowick… and honestly, who wouldn’t want to spend two days playing with smoke bombs and chainsaws?!
If you cannot tell I’m obsessed with army green. I found this whole look at Mixology (one of my newest obsessions! If you haven’t been you NEED to go!) I love the paneling on this dress and the netted material. This over-sized jacket is the perfect light weight piece to throw over your shoulders to transition the look into a crisp Fall day.
… and that view!!
Dress & Hat, Free People. Boots, Sam Edelman.
Yes to this Free People dress. Just all over yes. I was feeling Free People Fall vibes so I wore their maxi dress AND giant hat. I love how this dress has a boho vibe, but the high slit and plunging neckline makes it more va va voom! To go total Fall I paired it with over the knee boots and a feathery choker I picked up in Barcelona this past Spring.
I also can’t wait to try this dress with flat ankle boots! What do you guys think??
Umbrella, Uniqlo. Romper, Gab & Kate from Mixology. Shoes, Aldo.
I’m always super frustrated when an umbrella kills my vibe. I usually have some enormous ugly navy blue and white umbrella, or some flimsy broken green one. I knew I wanted something girly, so I was thrilled to find this polka dot umbrella at Uniqlo. They have so many adorable ones to choose from. We bought a camouflage one as well! I decided to go full matchy-matchy with a polka dot romper. This looks is perfect for a muggy rainy day – breathable shoulders, and no wet pant legs.
Crazy to think that we have been best friends for 15 years and actually managed to stay alive! We will be celebrating by throwing a Friendiversary this week and would love for you to join!

“I’m so fanccccay.” Feelin’ like a baller in this Adrienne Landau navy blue and black fur vest. It’s perfect for layering when you don’t want to cloak up for the Fall just yet. I paired it with some light wash boyfriend jeans to play with all the blue tones. I even got even a little more fancy with metallic heels and a handbag. Metallic extras are definitely my go to for this upcoming season, especially in this goldish/silver color. These heels are the perfect pair to stand out in all the beautiful foliage we should be getting soon. I also needed a way to edge up this look a bit, because, well you know, I’m a badass………. so I choose distressed denim.
These photos, for those who aren’t in NYC is on the highline. It’s so, so beautiful. I feel like sometimes I forget I’m in New York City and have all these things around me. Maybe I should spend a weekend being a tourist? Stay tuned 😉

As two single ladies in New York City, we have to take time to pamper ourselves. There’s no man coming home with roses, wine, and macaroons. THEREFORE, we take it upon ourselves to make sure our weekly routine involves simple indulgences such as these. We run down to our local flower stand and get a bouquet of flowers. Then we stroll over to St. Mark’s street and pick up some macaroons. The liquor store is around the corner, and we stock up on white wine or champagne.
We didn’t want to get too frisky with our photo, but you can imagine why this Caress® Daily Silk™ body wash is involved. When one of us has the apartment to ourselves, the flowers, vino, and dessert are quickly swept towards a decadent bubble bath. Turn on the Spotify, and it’s time to relax. We adore this new body wash for its shimmer and fragrance. We personally love the White Peach and Silky Orange Blossom. Leave it to the triple silkening moisturizers to keep you sexy and smooth. These steps are the perfect ingredients to a date night with yourself. It will make you feel unapologetically feminine. Who needs a man, anyway?
Treat yourself to the alluring fine fragrance of Caress® Daily Silk™ every day and feel truly irresistible. Refer to www.houseofcaress.com.

IT’S HERE! Happy first day of Fall. My favorite weather. The days when it’s chilly in the shade, and warm in the sun. You have to utilize these days with a mix of Summer and Fall fashion. I decided on a fuzzy fur jacket for the breezy moments, and paired it with simple blue denim, to make sure the look was casual. Furs can appear fancy, so it’s smart to dress them down. I went for practical ankle boots that made it both stylish and simplified. I wanted to make sure my outfit had a daytime look. Loving the way the jacket blends with the pre-fall colors. Who’s ready for some apple picking and a pumpkin patch?!

Just before NYFW we ran over to the Mixology store to pull some pieces to wear throughout the week. They have the best stuff. If you haven’t been go. Or don’t so I can buy everything!
Suede is the fabric of Fall, so I was obsessed when I tried this suede skirt with buttons up the center. I love the way it looks with these black suede over-the-knee boots too! So much suede, so much happiness.
In between shows I ran home and walked Shelby in Tompkins Square Park. Although, it looks more like she’s watching me i.e. photo 5 & 6. Alright, I’ll own up to it… I was trying to avoid it, but I think it’s necessary to say. Yes, I wore this skirt when I knew I would see Shelby because I knew we would match. I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that, but I don’t actually care because we look adorable together. Please still read my blog……………
Emily – Jumpsuit, Decker. Leather jacket, Playboy. Heels, Aldo. Handbag, Aimee Kestenberg. Sunnies, Banana Republic.
Is everyone as obsessed with jumpsuits as I am? I can’t stop wearing them… so prepare yourselves. I’m done wearing Summer clothes, even though it’s still so hot out, I’m just too excited. However, this Decker jumpsuit from Mixology is a really great transition piece because it’s got no sleeves. I’m not big into that style, so I threw a leather jacket over my shoulders to edge it up and cover up. Merlot is a major color trend this upcoming season, so try and get your hands on some awesome deep red pieces.
I have to take a second to talk about this bag. It’s gorgeous. I LOVE the color and I used it all NYFW because it fit everything… like i’m talking heels, extra chargers, camera, make-up, phone, and like a million other mostly unnecessary things. Who else is rocking a gray handbag this Fall?
