Tuesday Trendsday

Welcome to another weekday edition. Tuesday Trendsday. We'll talk about a trend or two, how to wear it, or how not to wear it. Today, we're talking about one of our favorite trends.  It's been around for a while, but we love the relaxed, cozy and natural vibe they exude. We're talking feathers!

Wear: Feather earrings. Pull back your tresses to show off your feather flair and let these be the centerpiece of your outfit. Style simply with t-shirt (or single color sweater for fall), skinny black jeans and rockin worn-in ankle boots.

We love these from Urban Outfitters

Happy Tuesday!

beauty makeup monday: lancome's new hypnose doll lashes mascara

Welcome to another beauty makeup monday! Appropriately, we received a fabulous little package in the mail today: Lancome's new Hypnose Doll Mascara.  Yay! We're a big Walgreen's CoverGirl Lash Blash fan ourselves ( um, hello awesome bristles!), but thought we'd try out this new lovely black and sleek wand to see what it could do. With a hint of rosewater, we're pleasantly surprised with the results. What do you think?

The new Lancome and our old standby


We have to admit the shape is much more classy, but it does remind us of something else entirely... hmmm. :)


Creep alert. In coming eye close-up. What do you guys think?

breathing in autumn with a wedding in Wyoming

We were lucky enough to soak up the first few days of fall with good friends at a beautiful wedding in Wyoming.  Drenched in two of our favorite colors, yellow and gray (hello perfect combination) and hosted in a historical train depot with rustic and natural WY touches, the day couldn't have been more perfect.  Did we ever say that we would die to become a wedding planner in another life? 

Love the juniper and pussy willows. Not to mention the handmade father-of-the-bride wooden vases!


Yes, I'll have the "Abby Special" please. Or many... 


On the way to the train depot.


A touch of sweetness, with Coke! So fun (and delicious)!



Served with these lovely straws!




Wish we would have had $800 cowboy boots and a $100 Stetson in the budget.


Welcome to the Depot!


Notice the geometric patterned centerpiece. Love!


The depot! Check out the map on the floor.


Love the bouquet's the ladies carried!! 



And finally, what would this post be without a little shoe action? We don't know exactly what shoes the bride was wearing, but we caught a glimpse of some fabulous suede mustard flats that we think were very similar to these. Peaking out from underneath her simply elegant JCREW dress, the whole look couldn't have been more simple, glowing and fabulous.

Beauty makeup monday: color!

Happy Monday lovelies. It's no secret that we are nail polish and color junkies. There's just something about a row of eye-popping bottles of color. Appropriately, we've amassed quite the collection.



With fall fashion in full swing, we picked out a few of our favorite fall shades below.


Left to right: OPI's "You don't know Jacques," OPI's " Eiffel for this color," Essie's "Midnight Cami," and Essie's, "Sew Psyched." 

Below, we try out "Midnight Cami" -  foreseeably our new go-to fall shade.

And it's fall.

As if on cue, September 1st ushered in a breath of fresh, cool and crisp fall air. Inhaling deeply, we're ready to take it all in. From trips the orchard to pumpkin spice lattes, mother nature gives us one dazzling display of color and a big warm hug, complete with cozy knits and rich tones, before old man winter takes his reign. It's time for a little reinventing and imagination - the time for wardrobe resolutions and fashions time to shine. We're more than ready to start shopping our fall closet ( thanks to Lauren of Perpetually Chic) and have our eye on a few key pieces this season.
Fall 2011












1. We're loving the rich tone of OPI's "Road House Blues." Part of their "Touring America" collection and inspired by none other than Jackson Hole, Wyoming, it's the perfect color to usher in fall (and appropriate, since we welcomed in the season with a gorgeous September wedding in Cheyene. More on that later).


2. Anything camel colored and we just about die. On trend this season are these lovely capes. Perfect for draping and cozying up in for an afternoon fall stroll, this one is from one our favorite retailers from across the pond, Dorothy Perkins.

3. We're talking refined polka dots paired with muted tones for a classic elegant effect. Long skirts are perfect for cooler weather ahead and this Stella McCartney number is no exception.

4. Chunky knits. Gray is one of our favorite colors, especially this time of year. There's something refined, rustic and cozy all at the same time. Dig out your cables or invest in a few as a way to add a piece to wear for fall year after year.


5. Emerald. It's the perfect time to invest in a little color and shine just before the dread of winter sets in. We are loving this color at the moment- the color of money and power. Tuck this Jonathan Sander's number into a pair of burnt orange pants and top off for neutral heels for a boost of confidence and instant appeal.

6. Prada's Iris scent is light and airy for summer, but has a little bit of spice and warmth for that perfect transition into fall.


7. We've always been a fan of large chunky watches, especially men's inspired time pieces like those of likes of Michael Kors, but this season we're feeling that a more refined statement may be more appropriate with a simple black strap and round face.


8. A classic penny loafer. Enamored with our mother's pair in the 90s, we simply can't get enough of this classic collegiate prep style. We recommend checking out GH Bass Co. perfecting it since 1876. We are also a fan of these high-heeled counterparts.
