DIY // Embroidered Patch Denim Jacket

October 16, 2017
embroidered denim jacket

Denim jackets are a wardrobe staple for us. They can be dressed up or down and come in so many different colors and styles.

The patch denim jacket has been popping up everywhere, from reaaally expensive versions (YSL has one for $1,250) to basic trendy versions you can find at Forever 21. Now back in High School I loved patches. When a pair of my favorite jeans started to have tears and rips, I threw on some vintage patches to solve the issues. My favorite part about adding patches or pins to a piece of denim is that it can totally be personal to you.

I like that brands are coming out with affordable versions of the patch denim jacket, but I feel like the fun of having a jacket like this is to make it personalized.

I scored this denim jacket from Forever 21 during one of their flash sales. It is aaaamazing quality, was $8, and is a men’s xs so it fits a little bigger which I love. There were already patches on it (two-thirds of which I hated) and a cute embroidered detail at the back. I figured I could easily remove the disliked patches and personalize it with my own finds! I left the rose patch and cut the other two off the jacket.

Styling Stripes [day & night]

August 13, 2017
styling stripes for day and night

We love a good classic print and for us stripes are a staple. A timeless style for all ages. We often hear people say ‘I can’t wear stripes-they’re unflattering!’ to which we say YESSSS YOU CAN and no they’re not!

Often times people misjudge that the stripes themselves are unflattering, when really it is the cut of the top, dress, or pants. Stripes have come a long way from the basic striped T. There are so many gorgeous pieces out there featuring the classic print and we’re styling two of them for day and night.

Bralettes are a staple piece in our wardrobes. They can be styled so many different ways and are super comfortable! Their pretty, delicate details can amp up a normal look while still being functional.


Why do we love bralettes so much?

-they can be worn with low cut tops or dresses

-add a delicate, girly vibe to a look

-they can be shown off in a backless top or dress

-they can be worn under a sheer top

-look great with off the shoulder tops and sweaters

-take the place of an actual bra


Now a lot of ladies have asked us how can a bralette take the place of an actual bra?

If you’re like us, on the smaller chested side of life, a bralette can offer just the right amount of coverage and support. If you are in need of more support we have found so many amazing options at Kohl’s for you!

Their bralette selection is serious!

Keep reading to see how we styled these three neutral bralettes for Summer.

Guide to shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary SALE

July 14, 2017
anniversary sale logo

So as you know everyone and their mother has been talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale the past couple of weeks.

Toted as the “Superbowl of Shopping” we were always a bit skeptical. Now because Tee and I looove a good deal we are pretty critical on what constitues an amazing sale. We are all about quality over quantity which is why we love shopping Marshalls and TJ Maxx. You aren’t getting cheap or irrelevent brands or styles-you’re scoring nice quality pieces at an amazing price!

Last year was the first year I really shopped the sale and I was pleasantly surprised! There were some really affordable pieces and the items did go back to a higher price point after the sale was over.

One of my favorite pairs of Topshop Jeans were scored during the sale last year and were such an amazing deal!

sale dates

A couple of tips I learned from last years sale that may be helpful to you this year:

Tip #1

Keep checking back. If you love something and it sells out quickly there will most likely be more that come in stock or people will return items! I bookmark the page for the item I love and check back a couple times a day.

Tip #2

You can always return! One thing I love about ordering or shopping in Nordstrom is that the return process is so simple. So if you have doubts order the piece and make sure you return it if you don’t love it when it arrives.

Tip #3

Think ahead. Tee and I always shop for Fall and Winter pieces during the Summer regardless of the store. It is seriously the best time to scoop these types of items {cardigans, coats, boots, scarves} up because in a couple of months you’ll need them and they will be double or triple the price.

So don’t fret that you won’t wear it for a little while. Put it in your closet and you’ll be so happy to have the pieces in a couple of months.

Tip #4

Do not buy something just because it is on sale!!!

Now this can be very hard for us to even do but it is important. Just because something is on sale and there is the element of scarcity don’t buy it. Buy pieces you know you’ll wear and love. During sales like this it’s hard not to go crazy with all the hype.

We each rifled through the sale and came up with some of our favorite picks! We will keep them updated based on the changing inventory for you.
