I'm a big fan of basic looks styled with layers of accessories and stacked jewelry–especially in the winter when all you want to do it toss on a hoodie and sweat pants and still manage to find yourself shivering. Yeah, welcome to the Midwest my friends where it's like a nonstop blustery winter day until roughly March. At least my accessories make me happy!

If you've been following us for very long, you know how much we LOVE our gold monogram necklaces from Onecklace. You can imagine our excitement when we learned that they now offer jewelry in rose gold. I mean, who doesn't love shiny pink metal?! Onecklace was nice enough to send us two new personalized necklaces to add to our jewelry collection and we couldn't be happier with them!

I remember when wearing black and brown was a no-no...or maybe it still is? Turns out, I don't really care. In fact, I happened to love this color combo and will cherish this leopard scarf until it literally falls apart. It's a staple piece for sure and I've had it so long that I can't even remember where I got it. Super helpful, right? Don't worry, I've linked to some other great leopard scarves below! :)

My future's so bright, I need sunglasses–literally, I needed sunglasses while shooting these photos. I had no idea how bright it was going to be while taking these photos. Totally poor planning on my part, but at least I got some cute shots of this cute fall look featuring my favorite fall colors
I'm a huge fan of olive year round, but it definitely shines best in the fall–especially in a striped version. I'm a sucker for stripes also, so how could I resist this drop waist top from Target? Trick question, I couldn't. Which is why I'm standing before you in one of my favorite looks of fall.
I don't know if I've ever shared this or not, but I'm SUPER picky when it comes to booties. Kacie can vouch for me when I say I've bought 20+ pairs and have yet to find a style I really love–until I found these Dolce Vita beauties. The soft, supple leather and the pointed toe stole my heart at Nordstrom, so much so that I had to purchase two different colors. Bonus for you: they are on sale ($95.91) right now! Cha-ching! It also helps that they perfectly match this awesome BlankNYC faux leather jacket.

I was just telling Jaime the other day how we've flip-flopped. I used to be an earthy, neutral girl and she was the all-black queen. I guess you could say that we've rubbed off on each other's style and now we've switched – I rarely wear anything other than black! But on this particular day, I decided to lighten up (tall order, I know) and go with a white, olive and gray combo and I have to say...it was a winner!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner! This year has been a constant whirlwind of activity in my life and I can't believe the holidays are so close. From building a house to moving and trying to squeeze weekend plans in between, it's been quite the year and I'm happy to finally be unpacked and back in a routine.
Tuesday, November 8, 2016
Does this not look like the most perfect fall day?! It totally was. I can't believe it's November and its just now starting to actually look like fall around here (it happens to be my favorite time of year and patience is not so much my thing). Better late than never – its absolutely gorgeous in Indy right now!
I drooled over this Free People embellished military shirt jacket all summer long and have literally been living in it over the last few months. It's super soft and is probably my favorite jacket of all time.

Raise your hand if you've had a hard time finding new pieces to add to your wardrobe this fall. I love the Nordstrom sales each year, but this year I only found a couple of pieces I couldn't live without. Oddly enough, I've only found a bunch of sweaters to stock up on at Target that will carry me through fall and winter. Other than being in a state of sweater overload, nothing has really caught my eye, until I saw this fun top at Von Maur.

Who doesn't love polka dots?! It's a classic print that is perfect on its own, or paired with another print. In fact, if I had been thinking clearly when I ran out of the house on this particular morning, I would have grabbed my leopard clutch. But alas, I was clutchless as Jaime and I headed out to snap these photos on what started as a perfectly overcast lunch break. Of course, the bright sun soon came out to ruin my photos, per the usual. So friends, this is what you get. I think they still turned out okay!
Tuesday, October 25, 2016
Let me tell you a little story. I'll set the scene for you–it's a warm fall day, and two fashion bloggers are out over their lunch break looking to snap some cute outfit photos before grabbing lunch at their favorite sub shop, when a moody cat on the prowl, with a striking resemblance to Garfield, appears. Since I'm an animal lover I can't resist walking over and petting this kitty, but this cat was definitely a interesting mix of adorable and a pet who forgot its morning Xanex. Trust me, you couldn't resist trying to be friends with this cat either.

Cats...and leather jackets...
Basically the contents of my life these days. So you already know that when I saw this graphic tee on The Rage Boutique's website, I nearly had a heart attack. And somehow, when I magically came back to life, I had an order confirmation for this adorable little tee sitting pretty in my inbox. Weird.

Celebrity Colorist Justin Anderson // Kelli from Big Hair Foodie Fare // Karina from Karina's Style Diaires // Brittney from The Pretty Plus
Last week I had the opportunity to hang with some of my blogger besties and attend the launch of dpHUE, a haircare line created by Donna Pohlad and celebrity colorist Justin Anderson that gives you salon results on your schedule. I love mixing up my haircare products, and couldn't resist the opportunity of meeting Justin Anderson. With celebrity clients like Jennifer Aniston and Kristin Cavallari, who could pass up this meet and greet opportunity? (Even though I was having a not-so-great hair day.) Needless to say, I'm sold on the dpHUE haircare line.

Because we work in a casual office, it’s not unlikely to find us in jeans seven days a week…but that doesn’t mean we don’t love a good dress! By now you should be familiar with eShakti, an online store offering custom pieces made exactly to your measurements and liking. How cool is that?!
While we’re both suckers for a good LBD, the beautiful changing of the leaves had us in the fall spirit and clearly gravitating towards these beauties in deep red (c/o eShakti). Take a look at how we each styled our selections below!

The season where I wear head-to-toe black every day for the next five months, give or take a pink floral-printed kimono or two. And you know what? It also happens to be my favorite time of year! First comes fall, then comes the holidays...what's not to love?!

Is it a shirt or is it a jacket, thankfully I don't have to classify these things because Topshop has cleverly deemed this a "shacket". Dual purpose clothing like this will always have a place in my closet. I've never been much of a camouflage girl, but when I saw this at Nordstrom I gravitated toward the muted tones. Once I finally made up my mind that I needed it in my life, it was sold out at Nordstrom and I finally tracked it down at Topshop.com. Score!

X marks the spot – perfect casual outfit found...
You know when you hurriedly throw together an outfit on your way out the door and it actually ends up being pretty cute? This was one of those days. I literally had no plans to photograph it and didn't even have my camera with me to do so. So these were taken on my iPhone and are slightly blurry as a result. But at least the outfit is cute, right?
Thursday, September 15, 2016
Sometimes an outfit pops into your head as you're about to get dressed. You're not really sure where it came from, but hey, you roll with it. Today is one of those days. I finished my morning routine and started to get dressed when I thought I'd try out the chambray on dark denim style and mix it up with flares, a white tank and this adorable bandana choker from Limited Designs by Lulu & Doug. It wasn't until I got to work that I realized I look like I've been cast in an all female remake of Shawshank Redemption.

This look is my ode to summer (and forget about no white after Labor Day - lies!!). Like...its been nice, but see ya later. Give me all the colorful leaves, chai lattes, jackets, booties, scarves, and all black everything (plus, maybe Hocus Pocus, too). Because its not-quite-summer, not-quite-fall, dresses paired with booties are the perfect compromise. I give you, Exhibit A: this outfit.

Raise your hand if you're more than ready to transition into fall? That's totally a trick question because everyone is ready to bundle up with a pumpkin spice latte (or non-fat chai tea latte since coffee's not really our thing...) a cozy scarf and take in the fabulous season that is fall. While putting away your summer wardrobe, it's time to also start thinking about adjusting your beauty routine for the changing weather. Check out some of our favorite tips for freshening up our fall beauty routine!

Listen people, it's been another scorcher in Indiana recently and you can bet I'm not wearing fall clothing until it's cooled down a bit–meaning I'm not throwing on a sweater and sitting next to some leaves and pretending there's a chill in the air. Don't get me wrong, I love fall and all the cozy layering it entails, but I don't love sweating to death wearing all of those layers when it's still hot and humid.

One overall jumper + Converse + Round sunnies + One amazing bandana choker = 90s perfection.
Remember the 90s?? Please say yes. If Nickelodeon, Dunkaroos and Lisa Frank don't come to mind, we can't be friends. Sorry, that's just life. And friends, life can be rough. If only I could go back to the good old days, I would pay a whole lot more attention to the philosophical advice of Clarissa Darling and the world would be good again. *Sigh*

As you might have guessed, I’m the main character of this horror story.

Just like my hair, this notebook is filled with secrets. Just kidding–it's brand new (and my hair is full of dry shampoo), completely blank and awaiting what's likely to become work meeting notes. I'm a little old school when it comes to my note taking and prefer handwritten notes to typed. I'm the same way with meeting and content calendars. If it's an online calendar, there's a fairly good chance I won't look at it...at all. Thankfully my computer and iPhone have many more uses and I can accessorize them with cute CaseApp laptop skins and custom phone cases.

Stop. Right. There. We had so much fun at the store opening a few weeks ago that we are hosting a Shopping Party with Ashley from fASHionately Me, Kelli from Big Hair & Foodie Fare and Brittney from The Pretty Plus this Friday, August 26th from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at the Fashion Mall at Keystone. As if hanging with some of our favorite blogger pals wasn't enough, Kendra Scott will be providing sips and sweets and a 15% off discount for our party patrons. If we haven't sold you with the shopping discount, Kendra Scott will also be launching their new nail lacquer line and the first 20 shoppers who spend $50 will receive a free nail lacquer with their purchase. Cha-ching! We'll also be raffling off a Color Bar party to anyone who spends $100. If you haven't had a chance to play with the Color Bar, it's a great time to check it out. You can create custom pieces and take them home with you that night!

For the second look of our blogiversary photo shoot with Elise Wright Photography (see part one here), we continued with the carefree, boho vibe that often represents rural, Indiana living. Sometimes life in Indianapolis can get hectic and it was nice to be reminded to slow down and reflect on the success that this little blog of ours has experienced over the last three years - and the beautiful countryside scenery wasn't bad either!
Tuesday, August 16, 2016
For probably about two years, we talked about how much fun it would be to have a blog. Finally, three years ago we took the plunge and haven't looked back since. It's been quiet the journey of testing our comfort zone and taking our blog to the next level. When we look back to our first outfit posts we both cringe, but we also celebrate our progress and the fact that we've continued to improve year after year. From nailing down our own personal styles to testing new trends, we've come to the conclusion that we absolutely love sharing our lives with our readers. In honor of our three year blogiversary, we decided to kick off our shoes, literally, and go back to our Midwestern roots.
We were lucky enough to have Elise Wright Photography along for the ride to capture these amazing shots for us! Kacie may or may not have gotten tetanus from a rusty nail and Jaime may or may not have been attacked by a weed–but all in the name of the perfect shot, right?

Calling all Indy girls – Kendra Scott has arrived and will now have a storefront in the Fashion Mall at Keystone, complete with full collection and of course their signature Color Bar.
There is no denying we love Kendra Scott jewelry! The amazing colorful pieces can bring life to outfits, and with so many options available each season–along with staple pieces like the Rayne necklace and Danielle earrings–you can't go wrong. We are more than excited to welcome the Kendra Scott brand to Indy with with open arms...and bank accounts that will soon be a little more depleted thanks to our love for accessories. Check out some of the ways we've styled our favorite Kendra Scott pieces:

Elysian Co. earlier this summer and knew this little darlin' needed to come home with me. Unfortunately, it's no longer available but you can still shop their collection for other adorable pieces!

So this outfit is adorable, right? The laced up detailing, the ripped skinny jeans and studded sandals make for a super comfortable, edgy ensemble. You know what’s not cute? Sweating to death in 100+ degree heat and crazy humidity while wearing your cute outfit. But, regardless of the heat, I wore this outfit because a) no one ever said I made the best choices every day of my life and b) I have been dying to wear this Project Social T tank before summer was over and visiting the in-store #Nsale seemed like the perfect day.

If you saw this and this on my Instagram over the weekend then you know that Jaime and I took advantage of the #Nsale on Saturday. It was BEYOND hot with a heat index of over 100 degrees so I wanted to stay cool (gotta hustle if you want to get a good deal!). I snagged this adorable 'I'm Nacho Friend' bodysuit at Charlotte Russe recently and knew it was the perfect occasion to take her for a spin. I mean...when you're shopping the Anniversary Sale, it's not a game. I'm nacho friend – I will tackle you if you take the last pair of size 8 booties I've been eyeing. Juuuust kidding...

Romantic, chic and classic silhouettes always appeal to this girl. My style has been evolving lately though and I find myself drawn to muted tones, like this dusty rose top from Elysian Co. I still love bright, vibrant colors, but there is something so romantic and effortlessly chic about these new neutrals that I absolutely adore...and the fact that I can transition this beautiful top easily into a fall outfit gets bonus points in the styling department.
Wednesday, July 20, 2016
But I seriously do live for Fall and it's officially that time of year when I am completely over summer and I start to get excited for the most wonderful time of year – FALL!! I seriously love every single thing about Fall, especially the style in which I truly feel most like myself in my clothes. This look is a clear transition with hints of olive and camel broken up with summery, white denim.

Summer is filled with weddings, family parties, showers and just about any other event you can cram into the summer months. One thing that each of these things have in common is that you're likely to be photographed with friends and family, and I don't know about you, but I always want to look my best. Looking my best starts with a pearly white smile. Thanks to products like, Colgate Optic White, I can achieve a white smile just in time for, in this case, my birthday.

Why did summers feel so much cooler as a kid? Oh that's right, because you were on break from school and free to do as you please for what felt like an unlimited amount of time. Too bad as adults we don't have summer breaks. That would definitely make summer feel, well, like summer break again.

Who else still loves that Demi Lovato song?! It seriously is the theme song of my life right now. When its hot and sticky in the morning while I'm trying to do my hair and makeup, the last thing I want to do is put on pants (ha!) so that means cute dresses are a must! I love finding ones with fun details like this one with criss-cross cutouts at the shoulder which believe it or not, was under $20 at Meijer!
