I think this is the best new combo. Easy, fun, and casual, stripes, sneakers, and chambray can’t be done wrong. Here I paired a striped mini t-shirt dress with a chambray top and my favorite Nike Internationalist sneakers. Tying the chambray top around my waist gives me some curves and breaks up the stripes. This look is great for summer, especially if you want to be comfortable in sneakers!!
We could go on and on about selfies in this post, but what is the need? We hear about them EVERYDDAYYYYYY. We all love some photos of ourselves.
Regardless, here are my “celfies”. This tee designed by Jules from Sincerely Jules is such fun play on words and super easy to wear (shout out to Danielle who gave me this tee)! I paired it with a skort and gladiator sandals for a summer look. It has been so hot outside we are both opting for the most breathable and “cool” outfit. It is always fun to add a super feminine necklace/jewelry to a t-shirt like this to add some dimension. Just add a jean jacket to transition for dinner or going out.

Yes, this is another post about our love for striped pieces and our obsession with Schutz heels. But really, can you blame us??
As so many of you know we’ve wrote about stripes a lot so far on our blog. A LOT. We don’t need an explanation- stripes are awesome. They are such a great pattern to add to your wardrobe and they are absolutely the stars of our closet. If you look back at our previous posts that involve stripes, you’ll notice that they are extremely versatile- you can wear stripes in a variety of pieces and to a variety of different events (aka why we love them so much- who doesn’t love practicality?!?) We love this striped skirt Danielle is wearing here because its casual enough to wear to a summer party or you can dress it up to wear to work.
One look we are totally loving this summer is a striped t-shirt with high top converse and a fedora. How perfect is this for fourth of july or day at the beach? If you’re looking for something fancy (nails done, hair done, everything did…) we love a striped blouse with leather jeans. This would be great for a night out with the girls. Pair it with a pair of heels and it works equally well for a date night.
So go out their and make stripes the star of your wardrobe! Wishing you all a great week!

There is a lot to say about black and white-two of the simplest colors in our closets. Black and white is probably the EASIEST color combo we can think of. Throw on a pair of black skinnies and a white tank with any pair of shoes and you are ready to go- or you can do the exact opposite and still look just as chic! Recently we have been all about black and white; not only because it is so easy, but because there are sooo many options and ways to make it your own! As we saw from Spring 14 NYFW, the crisp contrast of black and white is making a big statement. Here is how you can too.
Lauren experimented with the black and white trend by finding a fun patterned skirt paired with basics. Since the skirt is somewhat of an optical illusion, the eye immediately is drawn there. Now we know this skirt is kinda a lot, but take it from us, IT IS WORTH IT!!! We think you can wear this skirt anytime of the year, with anything in your closet. Remember our Flippin’ Out post? Not only are the color and contrast of this skirt is amazing, but so is the shape. The fluted, fit n’ flare shape slims the torso and thighs (what Lauren looks for to flatter her body type).
Maybe a skirt is not your style? There are plenty of printed black and white tops and jackets you can pick from. We especially love color blocking with black and white- whether it be a white jacket with black sleeves, or a black shirt with white edge details. If you want to be extra fun, go for black and white printed pants! Just remember, don’t overcrowd your outfits. If you have one statement piece, make sure it works with the rest of your outfit instead of fighting for the most exciting piece.
Throwing on a simple pair of booties or sandals, depending on the weather, and gold jewelry are all you need to complete this outfit. Of course, if you are looking to add some color, accessories are a great way to do this when you are keeping the clothing simple. This will make them really pop!
We love the CA coast-Big Sur during Winter
