Navy Maxi

Happy Friday!

As of late I’ve been so into Free People- I love their brand and how it has such a carefree spirit. I found this maxi on gilt  and I’m so glad I decided to purchase it. It has been perfect for spring and will transition great into Summer. My favorite part of this dress is absolutely and obviously the back- I love the openess and simplicity. The layers at the bottom of the dress create such an incredible shape for my shorter frame. My only complaint is that if you are a little bit busty, this type of top can be trouble some- I didn’t find it to be an issue but if you do, it is easy enough to layer with a fun lacy bralette (check out Victoria’s Secret).

Do you ever shop on flash sale websites such as Gilt.com or Hautelook.com? Lauren and I both really like them- I’ve found such amazing products for nearly half the price and it’s fantastic.

Have an amazing weekend!

Stripes, Sneakers, and Chambray

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!!

Fit and Flare

Hi Everyone 🙂 Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, it’s crazy that March is almost over! I wore this great fit and flare dress over the weekend. I bought it from Anthropologie a few years ago and wore it to my college graduation! I actually forgot how cute this dress is on- such a great print and shape. I’ll have to start wearing it more often, especially now that it’s warmer!

Do you ever forget about certain items in your closet? How do you re-wear older pieces in your closet like they are new?

Share with us below! Have a GREAT week!

Trench Vests

Another trend we are absolutely WAiSTEDD on for spring is Trench Vests! We love that they add structure and texture to virtually every outfit.
It is the perfect piece to have in your spring wardrobe!
Trench Vests are also the perfect layering piece to go from day to night. We love that we can wear it over jeans to work and then over a chic all white outfit for dinner with the girls.
Check out some of our very favorites below!Trench Vests

Gorjana

Lauren and I have absolutely been loving simple gold jewelry lately. It pairs well with everything! Not to mention, it always the perfect compliment to the rest of an outfit. One of our favorite brands as of late is Gorjana. They are a quintessential cali-cool jewelry brand that epitomizes simple yet chic gold jewels. Recently available at Nordstrom, Gorjana is well-priced and easy accessible.

Check them out, we’re absolutely WAiSTEDD!

Vegas

For the long MLK weekend I was in Vegas for a few days- such a blast! Every time I go to Vegas I always find myself exploring and finding new, exciting things to try- whether it be restaurants, shopping experiences, clubs or a great bar, Vegas never seems to disappoint. Regardless of if you are the 5th member of the infamous Wolfpack from the Hangover or if you’re a foodie looking for that perfect restaurant, Vegas has it all.

I’ve been to Vegas roughly 5 times in the past few years (a lot of my friends turned 21, okay?) and I’ll be sharing some of my favorite eats, clubs, hotels and other Vegas insights.

Eats 

1. The Henry (Cosmo)– go for brunch and order the French Toast (or go there at 4 am and order the truffle tater tots)

2. Stack (Mirage)- save room for the Jelly Doughnuts for dessert

3. Todd English Pub (Aria)-sliders…

Stay

1. Vdara- my ABSOLUTE favorite hotel on the strip. Located in City Center with Suite style rooms you have the most amazing views. Another perk about the Vdara is there is no casino inside the hotel (yay to no smoke!). Centrally located & great service. I love this hotel, I wouldn’t recommend any where else!

Club

1. Surrender (Wynn)

2. Hakkasan (MGM)

3. Marquee (Cosmopolitan) 

The club scene is generally going to be pretty similar in my mind- I always enjoy places that play good music and have some outside area. If you have a club promoter you are able to work with, do it! Most will waive your cover charge and you won’t have to wait in line.

Other Necessities 

The first time I went to Vegas I wish someone had given me a checklist of essentials to bring on the trip. For example, I didn’t realize what a dry climate Vegas or how much an ATM on the strip would charge me to get cash or how much walking there was to do in Vegas…. those big signs are quite deceptive. Here is a list of things I always bring with me:

1. Chapstick/ lipbalm

2. Pair of Nike Frees

3. Cash

4. WATER (buy it there at the walgreens near Planet Hollywood)

5. Crossbody bag

6. ID holder for Cards, ID & Cash (when you go out)

7. Airborne- the last thing you want is a cold to slow you down!

Hope this helps on your next trip to Sin City!!!

Over the Knee

Hi Everyone, Happy Tuesday!

One of my favorite Christmas gifts I received this year was this pair of Steve Madden over the knee black suede boots. I fell in love with these when I  walked by them at Nordstrom Christmas shopping for my Mom. The texture is fabulous (Suede is one of my favorite textures) and I love that you can fold them down into a shorter boot for a more casual look.

I had always been worried about wearing over the knee boots because of my height. But paired with a shorter skirt or dress it actually lengthens the legs- shorties rejoice!

You can find these over the knee boots here at Nordstrom. Despite the fact these boots are named after Tyga, I still really like them.
