The Most Comfortable Heel You’ll Ever Own

November 8, 2017

 

Abigail- Jacket, Forever 21. Pants, Tripp NYC. Boots, Aerosoles. Sunnies, Vint & York

Emily- Leather jacket, AllSaints. Vegan leather pants, Aritzia Boots, Aerosoles. Sunnies, Vint & York

A lot of what we wear on the blog and Instagram could be considered a bit costume like to the general public. We love to dress up and do it quite often. I mean if you can walk around wearing a Princess Peach outfit why would you not… right?! However, a lot of you have been asking what we wear on a normal day to day basis. We decided to do a post on our everyday uniforms. This is what you will find us wearing at the grocery store, Home Depot, or even the doctors office. 

Abigail’s snakes pants are the most comfortable pants ever! TrippNYC has some fun and wild prints. She even has a matching jacket to go with them, but it is somewhere lost in the depths of our storage unit. It’s starting to get chilly, so this fuzzy coat is a go to. I stick to all black for the most part. I LIVE in these Aritzia vegan leather pants. They are wicked comfortable and I’m not bragging, but I look like a badass in all leather. I usually pair it with this black leather jacket with a long black t-shirt underneath. 

You will notice we are almost always in boot heels. I’m 5’9″ and it’s still not tall enough. There is something about wearing a heel that gives you stature and confidence. We are both usually matching in these Aerosoles boots ever since we got them… how cute (insert eye roll.) This is not an #ad and we are not getting paid to say this. These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I choose to wear them over my flats. Aerosoles have really gone in a more youthful direction with their latest collections, but kept the comfort that they are known for. Every girl needs a pair of these boots in her closet. 

The last thing you will always see us in is giant sunglasses. Do they make us a little bit more mysterious? Because, that’s what we’re going for… We just got sent these Vint & York sunnies and I’m sure you’ve noticed we’ve worn them quite a bit. We LOVE them! I’ve been rocking the Doll too in black and Abigail went with the Fairbanks, a classic aviator style. 

What is your everyday uniform? 

Xx, Emily

Leather Ladies at Cheekwood Estate

November 2, 2017

Abigail – Dress, H&M. Boots, Ted and Muffy.

Emily – Dress, DASH. Boots, Sam Edelman. Sunnies, Vint & York.

We’ve been in Nashville for one month now and I swear we could be tour guides. We love to explore EVERYTHING a city has to offer. It’s gotten to the point where we are giving uber drivers and locals advice on where to check out.

Cheekwood Estate is one of our favorite spots so far. It is easily one of the better back drops in Nashville. We were drawn to this stunning staircase fully equipped with vines and greenery. It’s got a very Lady Mary Crawley vibe going on. Does anyone else miss Downton Abbey?? 

If you’re new to our site, we wear a lot of leather. If you’ve been here before… you already know. It is a rare occasion when we are not wearing some sort of leather. Abigail’s LBLD (little black leather dress) has been a go to this Summer/Fall. It’s not too heavy and has a great shape. I actually got this DASH dress a while ago. I loved the material and shape, but it was a little too long. It had that Kardashian style going on, which is just not for me. I took it to a tailor and took off about a foot and a half. Now, it’s totally me!

This brings me to my next point and newest obsession. Tailor items to your body. I’ve taken quite a few looks to the tailor that may have been cool items, but had small things wrong with them. That is something that stops you from really utilizing items in your closet. I would always say, “I love this, but I wish it wasn’t so baggy.” $20 later, problem solved! Take a look at your closet and see what items you should be tailoring. 

Xx, Emily

Quick shout out to Coterie Show for having us in NYC this week to scour the booths for our favorite Spring/Summer 2018 styles. We landed at the Elizabeth and James booth drooling over these vintage kimonos and rad sunglasses. We may not wear a lot of color, but this is the one way we’ll succumb! Check out our Fall picks from the last trade show we covered:

– Fame Show –

As many of you already know, we move to Nashville next week! Get ready for a lot of brand new content including style, lifestyle, home decor, and of course travel. But don’t worry New York, we’ll be back before you know it.
