Shopping // Wide Leg Crops

Wide leg pants are one of our wardrobe essentials. And if you get a cropped pair, it even works for petites (like us). The Madewell Emmett is one of our favorites, but we've been toying with trying out the Everlane pair as well!

Straw Hat, Summer Grass

On Mal: H&M Knit Dress, Lucky Brand Oversized Denim Trucker Jacket, Staw Hat (similar), Vintage Basket bag

Photos by Tyler

The weather has been so hot and cold lately, that of course when we shot these photos the wind starte blowing. Peanut wanted to go find the source of the rustling in the grass (ground squirrel) but was generally pretty good at sitting still for some photos.

Styling Drapey Pants

I found these tie waist pants at Anthro on sale for $25 a few months ago and couldn't resist. I have been going through a loose-pants phase, and not only because I put on a few lbs after starting my new job lol.  Even though they feel like pajamas, draped pants look fancier than denim.

I've found these to pair well with both fitted tops for a formal look, and loose tops like the one I'm wearing if you're feeling more casual (or bloated).

On Mal: Anthropologie Tie Waist Jacquard Ankle Trousers (old, similar),  H&M Ribbed Sweatshirt (old), Forever 21 Ball Hoop Earrings (old), Zara slides (old, similar), JW Anderson Medium Pierce Bag

Clarins Joli Rouge Review

Color (Cinnamon) swatch from L to R: 
Classic Joli Rouge for Satin finish; Joli Rouge Brilliant for Shiny & Sheer finish; Joli Rouge Velvet for Matte

On Whit: Clarins Joli Rouge for Satin Finish in Cinnamon

Clarins recently launched 20 new shades and 3 finishes of their Joli Rouge lippies! How exciting --we've already been long time fans of Clarins Joli Rouge. As you can tell from the swatch, the finishes are very appropriately named!

What we love about them:
1) they're long-lasting (up to 6 hrs!)
2) they're very moisturizing

Moisturizing lipsticks are a must because I'm prone to having chapped lips. On application, they feel like chapstick. Just like butter!

It's been a while and it feels so good to be blogging again! After committing to a career change about a year ago, my life is finally "normal again".  I'm getting back into the routine of things with my new job and new dog. I'm a dog mom! You're never going to guess what dog I adopted...

Ruffled Sleeves

On Mallory: Club Monaco Sancerie Sweater - on sale for $30 (!!) when you get extra 40% off, Chloé Nile Minaudiere in Airy Gray (color sold out), Levi's Wedgie Jean (hate the name tbh),  ShopAkira Satin Bow Flats (old, similar linked below)

True story: Whitney and I ordered this same sweater, but Whit said it was too crazy for her lol. Me, I have already worn it several times 🤷🏻‍♀️.  Plus, you can't beat Club Monaco for $30!

In other life news, it has been hard to keep the blog up with work. It still is hard to adjust to that start-up life I guess. That, and I have been lucky to be able to be traveling a lot this summer! I'll be posting about my Japan trip shortly :)
