As we were running to appointments all morning, we stopped to snap our morning meeting looks. Abigail started with a red pant and created her outfit from there. Can you have a crush on an item of clothing? Because, I am swooning over this oversized relaxed blazer.

I wanted to keep it super simple and chic with a black and white look. I rarely wear white tops, so I’m totally stepping out of my comfort zone here. Is that sad? oh and, how amazing is this blue monster wall by the way?

We’ve had a couple gloomy days here in NYC, so we decided to match our outfits to the skies. Emily stuck with our Western craze by styling her look with a bandana. I test drove our brand new “girlfriend jeans” from Articles of Society. We’ve both officially ditched our jackets. I don’t care if it’s still 40 degrees, I’m done with Winter wardrobe.

Today’s Drink:

“Saved by the Bell”
(Vida Mezcal, Pueblo Viejo Blanco Tequila, Red Pepper, Agave Cracked Black Pepper, Salt Tincture.)

(Subject LES – 188 Suffolk)

Bartender: Tim

As we walked into Subject LES we were greeted by the smell of brewing bell peppers and a wicked cool bartender! Abigail is a huge spicy fan, but oddly enough I was totally into this drink as well. It wasn’t too much, and the spicy effect didn’t linger. You can really taste the black pepper and salt. This cocktail could be an interesting alternative to a bloody mary, or paired with a seafood meal this Summer.

Honorable cocktails of the night:

Remember the Alamo, had just the right amount of spicy and sweet. The jalapeño hits first and then the honey coats your throat, so you’re not left with a hot mouth. If you can hold your own with spices, than definitely test your tastebuds with this drink.

Galactic Sneeze was a favorite cocktail of mine. I always feel so badass drinking bourbon! Anyone else feel the same? However, it wasn’t heavy at all. In fact, the vanilla, cherry/orange bitters, and lime make it super sweet and so smooth.

It was a day of press previews, so we went with what we know best… leather. Emily wore these super soft leather trousers and a sheer top. I wore our little leather jacket and black skinnies. Happy our day of events brought us down to Crosby Street – one of our favorite blocks in the city. I promise once it’s actually Spring weather we will start experimenting with color :)

Abigail – Hat, Free People. Poncho, DSW. Boots, Ritch Erani from Chuckie’s New York.

Spring is here… kind of. We’re embracing the warmer weather by ditching our giant jackets and opting for warmer, less obtrusive pieces. Abigail went western with this poncho and Free People cowboy hat. Does anyone else question whether they would survive in the west when everyone carried revolvers and every man looked like Clint Eastwood? I digress.

Abigail even bared some leg with the help of some high boots and layers on top. Plus, ponchos always make you want margaritas… so right after these photos we headed to El Camion for some grande margs, tacos and chips!

I know you’re all pretty freaked out by outfit. Yes, I wore color. Yes, it was scary. Yes, I kind of liked it. Don’t get any ideas though, this isn’t going to be a regular thing! Not only did I wear this rusty red crop top, but I paired it with, dun.. dun……. brown pieces! What do you think of our “It’s cold, but it’s Spring, so it looks like it’s much nicer out” looks?

Travel Essentials

WanderLust-Girls-Travel-Essentials

Make-up Remover, Neutrogena. Headphones, Frends. Leather jacket, H&M. T-shirt, Daftbird. Boyfriend Jeans, One Teaspoon. Sunnies, ZeroUV. Slides, Forever 21. Fringe bag, B-Low The Belt. Heels, Gianvito Rossi. Lipstick, MUA. Extra charge, QVC.

We definitely have been bit by the travel bug! As you can see Abigail and I have been jet-setting as much as possible to escape this horrible Winter NYC has been having. Although, as the weather seems to be getting nicer there seems to be no clear end point to our WanderLust.

With all this being said, we know that the most difficult part of traveling, especially for a long time, is the packing! It’s important to pack key pieces that you can build off for numerous looks. We always have a nice pair of jeans, a simple t-shirt, and a leather jacket (in case it gets chilly.) Flats are muy importante for all the walking you’ll do. However, don’t forget a nice heel (and some red lipstick!) It can take this look from day to a night in seconds.

Of course, a big, but bearable bag is necessary as well as a fun pair of sunnies. We always use Neutrogena make-up remover when traveling, because who doesn’t feel  super gross after that get off a plane and your eye liner is all over your nose. (is that just me?!) Forgetting headphones is the worst feeling when you get on a long flight, so pick up a cool pair like these ones from Frends. Finally, with all that Instagramming your phone will die, so pack an extra charge!!

If any of you are looking for a little WanderLust, check out Flight Centre. They have super cheap deasls from London to New York ;)

Abigail – Shirt, vintage Bloomingdale’s. Trousers, Darling. Heels, Preen x Aldo. Shades, Tom Ford.

Emily – Blouse, vintage. Denim, J Brand. Shoes, Sam Edelman. Shades, Dior.

We came home to Boston for St. Patrick’s day, and are soaking in all of the hometown charm while we’re here. We went to Mel’s Diner for brunch with our bestie, and posed in front of a gas station because it seemed appropriate with my “speedway” patch top. We both opted for vintage tops, mine being a top from Bloomingdale’s in 2000, and Emily’s a retro polka-dot purchase. Don’t be fooled, it was still 30 degrees, but we just are quitting jackets.

LBD Spring Look

WanderLust-Girls-LBD-DailyLook-Picks

LBD, Blue Life. Hat, L’inde le Palais. Bucket bag, 3.1 Phillip Lim. Cuff, Saint Laurent. Boots, Topshop. Necklace, Iswai. Nude lipstick, Vincent Longo. Suede jacket, Elle Sasson.

Needless to say, Abigail and I are not the tropical type, so Spring trends can be hard to come by sometimes. Black tends to stay in our wardrobe all year round, but we decided to go with a lighter lip and a tan suede jacket to be a bit more Springy.

We live for LBD’s. They are such a staple, and you literally can never have enough. Isn’t it nice when there is always an excuse to buy clothes?! Check out DailyLook’s selection, it’s AMAZING. We found this lace slip dress from their site, and will be hopefully adding it to our wardrobe very soon. Will any of these items be in your closet this Spring?

Emily – Leather jacket, Maje. Dress, Cruba. Pants, Aritzia. Boots, Vince. Hat, Free People. Bag, Etienne Aigner.

It’s way too cold to go bare legged, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear all those dresses hanging in your closet till Spring! Abigail styled her’s with these epic lace-up boots and thick black tights. The denim jacket and hat are perfect for warmth and western moments in front of probably the only wooden wall in New York City.

I on the other hand feel like a SoHo stoop kid in my all black layered look. I would give anything to be a stoop kid… anything. I’ve been really loving the dress over pants look, and these vegan leather leggings are perfect, since they aren’t too thick! As much as I love black it’s always good to add a little splash of color, so I threw on my metallic Etienne Aigner cross-body bag. Please ignore the salt stains on my boots… they are in need of some intense care!

Emily – Overalls, Zara. Long sleeve, Uniqlo. Heels, Enzo Angiolini. Backpack, DKNY. Sunnies, Dharma Co.

The streets of NYC are sun filled, but that breeze is brisk! So, Abigail and I went for warm pieces to mix with an otherwise Spring look. Her cropped fur adds warmth and a splash of decadence to this outfit. Obsessed with how she mixed brown tones to lighten up our normal all black.

Clearly, I was not budging from my normal monochrome uniform. I paired these super comfortable overalls with a Uniqlo heat tech shirt for some added warmth. I added heels to dress up the look a bit for all our meetings and errands today. Although, I feel it necessary to mention that my heel got stuck in a manhole grate ten minutes before this photo. Manhole 1, Emily 0.
