Beastie Boys

Beastie Boys

I will admit in 100% honesty that it's pretty hard to get us out of sneakers. Not only are they the most comfortable shoes around, they are a deeply ingrained part of our fashion sense and our culture. 

The Sandlot

The Sandlot

For sure there was a moment in all our lives where we wanted to be the Beastie Boys, or marry them. We all wanted to be Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez, or marry him. 

Needless to say, our shoe closets are more crowded with sneakers then heels. Here are a few of our favorites right now. 

1. Classic Vans slip-ons in our favorite neutral 2. Sparkly silver Converse 3. High Top Pro Keds

These classic sneakers get paid with everything from jeans to army pants and we can't get enough of them. But as Moms we now face the issue of spending all day on our feet and for that, sadly, our flat footed classics don't always work. 

So here we have a few of our favorite sneakers that support your arches. Uggghhh I hate even saying that but these shoes make it worth it. 

1. Adidas Flashback 2. Stella McCartney Kea Clima 3. Adidas NMD CS2

Happy sneaker shopping!

Winter, we love you so very much, we have been waiting for you for what seems like ages and you're finally here! So while we revel in the very few months of "cold" weather we get here in Southern California lets discuss sweaters. Turtlenecks, mock necks, rolled necks, whatever you want to call them we just can't get enough of these high necked cozy knits.

Eternally fashionable a'la our baby Jane in the photo above you can make a giant turtleneck cozy and chic or you can take a note out of our other muse's book.... Because are you really anything if you're not Bridget Bardot in the backseat of a limo making a turtleneck look as sexy as you've ever seen one? 

Brigitte-Bardot-443x560.jpg

We've done the dirty work for you a nd rounded up our favorite pieces for this winter. Whatever your budget we have got the perfect knit for you. 

 

Chunky sweaters are probably our very favorite sort of sweater, paired with old jeans, a calf length skirt, vegan leather leggings or the perfect cargo pant you can't go wrong. 

1. Pink Lady- We are loving this super afordable light pink knit from H&M. 

2. Red Hot- Okay, so maybe this perfect knit from Mr. Mittens costs an arm and a leg... But we can all dream. 

3. Winter White- Cropped and fuzzy this Free People knit is the perfect number to match with your high waisted jeans. 

4. All Is Fair- Maybe the perfect Fair Isle sweater, we can not get enough camel this year. 

 

Sweaters can be super sexy as well, as our girl Bridget proved so we have you covered with these two choices to spice up your winter. 

You can knock them out coming or going in these two knits. 

1. ALC - open in the front with the perfect V neck, Andrea Lieberman you never go wrong. 

2. Rag & Bone- Business in the front, party in the back.. We are in love. 

Winter we welcome you with open arms, and not just because it's an excuse to stay in overnight and overeat while watching our favorite Holiday movies... But maybe mostly thats why.

Throw a bow on it

It doesn't matter how old you are, you're never too old to top yourself off with a bow.  And NO we are not talking about this kind of bow....although we totally would if our "mom boobs" wouldn't slip and sag out of the bottom!

We are talking about the fashion kind.  Not sure if its the cold weather or the fact that holiday gifts are right around the corner but we get really into bow adornment in our closets and on the streets.  

There is something so sweet yet so chic and perfectly in line with the holidays about a bow.  Here are a few of our favorite bows of

the season...and the best part they won't break the bank!  You're welcome :)

Fall in....to fall fashion

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 6.09.55 AM.png

Tonight we noticed a slight chill in the air...a small dare I say breeze when exiting the pool.  We had to wrap our towels quickly in the 70 degree air (insert laugh here...look...we are in LA 70 is basically fall for us!) so immediately I screeched..."Oooh!  It's almost sweater weather!"  Which then got me thinking...' What am I looking forward to wearing when the temps dip below ...eh..ehhm...70'?

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 6.12.58 AM.png

The most exciting thing about this falls fashion is anything goes!  There is no one thing that is "happening" just like life...anything goes!  The only thing I noticed (which makes this ex-ballerina VERY happy) is we went from clean minimalist to maximalist....voluminous, oversized and slouchy.  Done done and done!  

Here are our fave and budget friendly picks for what we are adding to our closets this fall

How fun fashion is getting...the versatility lends itself to being an individual...no more cookie cutters and crazy trends!  Be you!

Protect your neck

Bad vibes or negative energy have a way of sneaking into your life, no matter if it's in the form of self doubt you inflict upon yourself or if you're being thrown a bad mojo by a negative person.

Sometimes your going through a phase of life that is so challenging and hard you don't think you can make it.

We are all about clearing the air, trying our best to keep postitive and sunny and grabing at whatever can give us the strength to get through. 

The saying "life's too short" strikes way to close to home & we intend on spending everday as happy and fully as we can. 

Call us superstisious, but we have always been strongly pulled towards talismans to keep us and our loved ones safe from negitive energy in the world. Like Dumbo & his feather, if you belive it works, then it works. 

So next time the hair on the back of your neck stands up and you feel the bad mojo flowing grab one of these gorgeous charms to ward off any evil the world is trying to throw at you.

Rebel, rebel you've torn your dress.

We have always been more of the Tom Boy sort of girls... You will never get us to give up our denim for too long, but when the weather turns warmer we love to throw on a good dress. 

Nothing can make you feel pulled together faster than the perfect dress, and as an added benefit you get all that wonder breeze action on a hot day. 

Here is a quick round-up of a few of our favorite dresses right now, from over a suit at the pool, to the perfect little black dress we've got you covered. 

A. Vamos a la playa

1. The perfect men's shirt dress will bring you to the beach or pool feeling completely cool. This one from Trovata Birds of Paradise is timeless. 

2. Sexy, gauzy, dreamy and the perfect shade of tomato red. Zara delivers again with this beautiful and light coverup. Perfect for the pool party that runs into moonlight cocktails. 

3. This little off the shoulder white number just may turn into our summer uniform.... We really can't think of anywhere you wouldn't wear it. 

4. We love 9 Seed so much and this gauzy delicious maxi dress is right up our alley. Nothing clingy about this loose and flowing number means we'll be cozy with the kids by the bay. You can grab this at The O'Dells shop

5. Faithful the brand dreamed up the perfect summer dress with everything we love. It is simple, feminine, loose and easy. 

 

B. Hot fun in the summertime

XOXO- M&E

 

 

 

And we have a long, long way to go...

What a year! We could go on and on about every single bone we have to pick with our current administration, and if you follow us on Twitter, then you get to hear it all the time. 

As disheartening and maddening as this moment in our country is, we can't help but feel empowered and mobilized... Sort of like a bucket of cold water being splashed on your face... WE ARE AWAKE NOW!!! 

It seems every morning we are waking up to face another injustice or mistruth from our government. The dread and depression of November is gone, this winter & spring we feel empowered and emboldened. Our voices are loud and our numbers are many... We find so much comfort in the sisterhood of like minded women! 

Since this whole election cycle started we have found so many kindred spirits, its always so nice to share not only our outrage but our work.... To see a friendly mom or grandmother at school drop off and say... "Did you call your congress person?" "Here take these mailing labels for the postcards, you're going to be writing to your Senator quite a bit this year..."   Because this is nothing new, women have had to fight for countless years for what we know is right and just and human. 

So today, be proud of your fight. Be proud to be a member of the resistance! Wear your heart of your sleeve... Or your resistance on your chest. 

Today we have rounded up a few of our favorite badges of honor - or t-shirts- for all you beautiful, bold rebels out there fighting the good fight. 

A. First, we have the most iconic shirt from this year- The Future Is Female- Did you know this shirt was actually originally designed in the 1970's for Labyris Books, the first women's bookstore in New York City. The design endured and hit a new surge of popularity during Hillary Clinton's campaign for President.  Although in truth, this shirt represents so much more... It has become a symbol for our generation of what we can look forward to as so many marginalized groups of people take hold of their power & our countries future. 

B. Who doesn't love Ruth Bader Ginsburg? The 2nd women ever appointed to the Supreme Court, she has fought long and hard for women's rights and equal rights throughout her career. 

C. Ahhhh the amazing Dior - "We Should All Be Feminists" shirt.... So good... So expensive. We can dream, though can't we. A percentage of the proceeds go to Rhianna's charity.   

D. Strong As A Mother- We just fell in love with everything about this phrase. As mothers, we know that every day we have to be the strength for our families. Be proud of how hard you will fight for your children's future.

E. We Are The Resistance - Oh Carrie Fisher, how broken our hearts still are. We are so proud that you have come to symbolize strength and power and rebellion for all of us. 

F. Cory Booker 2020 - YES!!!! We can't say enough how much we love Cory Booker... I mean talk about a light in the darkness! This man shows up and fights for all of us every day... Women, Men, LGBT, Immigrants, Muslims, Animals... Cory Booker has all of our backs. Plus, please follow him on Twitter, because the way he explains things really helps you wrap your head around all the insanity happening in Washington these days.   

Fight on America.

Pajama Time...love to live in "men's" pajamas

Being a hardworking woman ain't easy.  We take on the world and the world takes us on.  Our days start before the sun goes up and ends long after the moon has risen.  So when that cozy bed is calling us the last thing we want to worry about is being "cute or put together".  We want snuggly sweats, big tushed undies (cuz sleeping in a thong is seriously the most uncomfortable thing ever...sorry hubbies) and a worn out tee.  But then to be honest, it would be really nice to wake up and start the day looking kinda put together...kinda?!

And the irony is we sit here in vintage tees and sweats researching and typing this.  So this is more than a post...this is a call to action!  It's time to look great going to bed so you can look just as great (minus the sheet marks, puffy eyes and bed head) when you wake up.  It's more for us than our partners...it's like putting on lipstick or mascara..it's like a pinch on the bum and a tiny shot of "I got this"   

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 6.01.30 AM.png

Now, throwing on some really lovely lingerie is amazing too but there are days where cozy is just where it's at..and our favorite way to be cozy and sexy at the same time is in men's pajamas (but the ones for us).  They are crisp, clean and cute!  Plus you can let it ALL hang out!  Look ma' no bra!  Here are our favorites right now... 

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 //

Guess what looks great with these pajamas?  Converse or even sexy heels...get our drift...Out of the sheets onto the streets...

Sexy Not Silly

Valentine's day is approaching and this year as women we are feeling EXTRA empowered so we decided to take sexy back.

Lingerie is one of our all-time favorite things, the sensual, smooth, silky feel of the fabric makes you feel so confident. Except when it doesn't.

We hate the feeling of lingerie that is "too much"... It can instantly make you feel silly rather than sexy and that can really put out a fire. Corsets and garters and bustiers can be really fun if you are in the mood to be someone else, but today we gathered up a few sexy pieces that make us feel like beautiful, emboldened versions of ourselves and that is as sexy as it gets. 

Hello gorgeous! It's hard not to love this sheer ruffly teddy from Flora Nikrooz. This piece stricks the perfect balance between beautiful and naughty. 

 

There is something about a sky high slit up the leg of your nightie that just feels decadent. This Out From Under slip is dark and sexy. 

 

Striking that perfect balance between cute and sexy... Our favorite place to be. We are in love with this Chelsea28 top we want to wear it with our vintage levis. 

 

Dear Santa, Valentine angels, birthday goddesses, husbands and anyone who may be listening. This insanely beautiful Haori Kimono from Fleur du Mal is not only crazy expensive it's SUPER practical... Because every time you put it on, you feel instantly beautiful, strong, sexy and feminine AND it saves money because you wouldn't even need anything to wear underneath. 

Except maybe these heart booty Valentine's panties from Free People. 

Happy Valentine's Day! We hope you feel loved, valued, cherished and confident this year. 

XOXO- M&E

 

 

 

  

Holiday Hostess Gifts

Tis' the season for holiday parties! Every weekend is filled up with a parties and thank goodness we aren't throwing one this year because it takes a lot of work! 

We all know how bad it feels to show up to a party empty-handed, so here are a few of our favorite hostess gifts. 

Wine, of course... But not just wine, make your party contribution stand out by adding a special touch to your favorite bottle of Rosè, we love this rose gold bottle stopper plus glass charm set from Umbra

A beautiful gift for someone you know pretty well is a box of vintage Christmas Ornaments. Now, we say you have to know them pretty well because you have to know that they will "GET IT".... 

We once wasted a ton of money and time searching down a vintage Fisher Price plastic record player for our friend's son... This was way before they re-released them... Anyway, we searched e-bay found one, cleaned it and we were so proud of that gift... But in the end, they just thought we had given them an old used toy! We learned a life lesson, vintage gifts only go directly to the vintage loving!

But trust us, for the right person this will make their heart soar! 

It's a well-known fact that everybody in the Universe loves a candle, especially this one. 

Le Labo candle in a beautiful black glass vessel is a gift that keeps on giving. The smell is out of this world the candle's aroma comprises a secret blend of 26 ingredients, including notes of amber, coco, vanilla, cedar, musk, and of course, sandalwood.

Now you can walk into any event fully armed and prepared to thank your lovely host & hostess.

Have fun, be safe.

XOXO- TWH  

 

 

 

 

Oh Christmas Tree!

I don't think there was ever a year we were more eager to wash the Thanksgiving dishes and get straight to Christmas. Our houses are pretty much ready to go and it's not even December. 

This year was a hard one for a lot of us and so the promise of a cozy-snuggle-by-the-fire and be close to the ones you love holiday seems like a dream. 

But this year we are wondering "What about the tree?" 

About 6 years ago we both bought white Christmas trees they were fun and fresh and unique and we LOVE them. Plus they were inspired by the most Christmas-y of all girls. 

Oh Winona- you give us heart eyes. 

Oh Winona- you give us heart eyes. 

This year I am craving something different, I have a longing for a beautiful, green traditional Christmas tree. 

A few things about this craving are giving me pause though and here is what they are. 

1. Nothing breaks my heart more than the drive down the alleys of California and looking at all of those discarded trees in the trash the week after Christmas. I mean, ever since I was a little kid I hated that sight, those poor trees. 

2. While I used to be a pro at stringing a Christmas Tree with lights, the years I have had a pre-lit tree have shown me that you don't need to have scratched up, sap covered arms all month! I know that may sound lazy but hey, I've got three kids to wrangle, I don't have hours to string and UNSTRING a tree with lights. 

So then I started thinking, maybe we should get a potted tree that way we don't have to cut down a beautiful tree. After a little research into this, I am finding it so hard to find a potted Christmas tree place! 

I found a few that rent and deliver which is super awesome. 

We love this idea in theory but it costs quite a bit and the selection isn't that large. Please fill us in if you have more information about potted tree vendors or potted tree rentals. 

Another option is purchasing another faux tree the problem with that is storage... My husband may kill me if I take up all of our garage space with faux Christmas Trees... But a girl can dream and here are a few of our favorites. 

The prettiest trees I have found are on Treetopia.com and of course they are super expensive... But today (Monday the 28th of November) they are having a Cyber Monday sale and the prices are WAY, WAY discounted! 

 

Target always comes through with great style for a pretty reasonable price. 

 

This pretty little tree from Hayneedle comes with this basket base and is pre-lit. 

Luckily for me, my family won't let me put up the tree till December 1st... So I have a few days to think about it. 

What is your tradition? What is your plan for this year? Let us know in the comments.  Growing up I never would have considered a faux tree but now I see that it can make life a lot easier. 

XOXO- TWH 

 

 

 

 

Sweater Weather

Ok California friends, what we have been waiting for since September has finally arrived! Sweater Weather is here, at least till 11:30 when you have to peel your sweater off your sweaty body before you get heat stroke!

Alas, where  we live our Fall is fleeting and we will take it while we can! As we hear a collective dreamy sigh sweep through Southern California we pull out all our old cozy sweaters and realize we need a refresher on our sweater collection. We have put together some of our favorite knitwear choices to make shopping easy for you. 

 We love playing with proportion when we get dressed. If we have on something tight on the bottom, it's loose on top and if it's tight up top we want loose and flowy on the bottom. 

One of our favorite silhouettes has always been very voluminous tops with a great pair of old Levi's or our favorite faux leather pants. It's the balance that keeps your outfit interesting and modern keep that in mind as you shop this Fall. 

A. The cozy and roomy Storm Turtleneck Sweater from J.O.A would be perfect paired with denim cutoffs, black tights, and boots that never quit. 

B. Perfect for that Southern California in-between weather this pretty Joie Jolena sweater is topping our list. 

C. If you died and went to turtleneck heaven this beauty would be waiting to greet you. Pair this TopShop Chiffon Sleeve gem with a wide leg, high waisted trouser or some faded denim overalls.

 D. We love it when Fashion's it girls who really get fashion team up with great brands and this Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 open backed sweater is case in point. 

E. Madewell continues to steal our hearts with this clever Convertible Turtleneck Sweater. Not only is this idea genius, the deep cabernet color is always one of our favorites for Fall. 

F. The Sarah Sweater from Heartloom couldn't be more on point for Fall 2016 with the cut-outs in the shoulders and the nice loose shape, but with the classic color and weave, something tells us this sweater will go on looking current for years. 

Grab yourself some chai tea and your favorite cozy sweater because Fall is officially here. 

XOXO- TWH

You can also get real crazy and dress up like Joyce! 

Let's reach back a little further in time for a slightly more unique costume.

When Erin & I write our memoirs we will probably title it... Our life in Winona Ryder Costumes. Every year we can't help but jump at the chance to be one Winona character or another.... The list is so amazing.... Kim from Edward Scissor Hands, Lydia Deets from Beetlejuice, Lelaina from Reality Bites... And of course. Veronica from Heathers. 

Heathers

Heathers

Perfect for a group costume with some girl friends. The key is remembering that each Heather has her own color so just have each girl dress in either red, yellow, green and for Veronica blue. Bust out those blazers and tights!

Are these getting too complicated? We have the world's easiest costume for you then. It's still pretty cute but it's sitting in your closet and it's a classic.

Velvet Underground...Our favorite velvet pieces for fall

Crispy mornings,  hot coffee,  opaque tights,  and snuggles by the fire...these are a few of our favorite things we look forward to every fall.  The moment we see a golden leaf fall from our favorite trees we dream about bundling up and pulling out our sweaters from the back of the closets and bathing in velvet.  Oh yes,  we said it...VELVET!  Admit it,  you loved the sound that made when it rolled off your brain.  Then you remembered these...

Juicy Couture Velvet Tracksuits....No words.

Juicy Couture Velvet Tracksuits....No words.

But no fear...seriously don't worry..those Juicy tracksuits are long gone.  The velvet we are talking about are the ones so stylish you won't look back at photos and cringe or look like Aunt Selma in a crushed velvet too tight dress.  The velvet we love is sumptuous, stylish and luxuriously bold.

Behold...the new velvet underground...

  • one-  Throwing this pink velvet daybed cushion in the corner of any room covered in pillows is like your own personal opium den...PINK!
  • two- This paisley velvet blazer takes your daily uniform of a tee and jeans and turns it up to 100
  • three- How pretty are these ink blue lace up booties?  See comment above..
  • four- Ditto for these embossed stunners!
  • five- Oh hello dream embroidered bomber!   We would wear you everyday
  • six- Love these velvet skinnies paired with a yummy sweater for fall.
  • seven-  Be cozy and sexy at the same time?  Yup with this rose colored body suit its possible.
  • eight-  This delicate velvet bow choker automatically up styles your outfit from day to night.
  • nine-  Seriously?!  WE NEED THIS VELVET MILITARY BLAZER!  Sorry to yell but come on!

These pieces automatically up the ante of any outfit or room...how would you wear it?  

Happy Fall!

SWEAT(shirt)ER Weather

We still dream of having this sweatshirt and now even more..Will...our style guru forever

We still dream of having this sweatshirt and now even more..Will...our style guru forever

Most people in the US LIVE for the first day of fall...they can't wait for the first leaves that fall to the ground, pumpkin spice lattes, tights under everything... but us?  Oh we wait for it so we can wear our sweats to bed then roll to the streets like we meant it.  Nothing says fall like bed to street fashion :).  A few weeks ago we raved about our closets favorite coziest sheets to the streets items and we are on a roll.   

Look we are moms..wives, friends, shoppers, cooks, maids, cleaners, supports, hypnotists, but we are also cozy loving, fashion obsessed girls.   So what a better way to look cute night to day than a great sweatshirt!  

NEED THIS! 

NEED THIS! 

  1. The Great- Sweet but not sloppy..this embroidered star sweatshirt is perfect
  2. Mate the Label- Remember the tee we LOVE so much??  Here is its cozy mama
  3. Urban- Vintage french surplus sweatshirt...OUI! 
  4. Vintage- Nothing is more delicious than a vintage sweatshirt
  5. Monogram Studio- How chic is this beauty? 
  6. OC- Here it is... we are not label girls but this one is great...especially after seeing Will in it

The cutest part about rocking a great sweatshirt is what you pair with it.  Roll outta bed...throw your hair up and pair your it with great jeans...or even better some cute (faux) leather pants, sneakers and a great bandana...

Voila...insta chic and crazy cozy. Bring it on fall!

How would you wear it?

xoTWH

A t-shirt a day...

It's no surprise that we are obsessed with t-shirts.  Like stalk each other, ebay, friends, stores obsessed.  We have never met a great tee we didn't like.  And lucky for us, since the vintage look denim trend is huge...t-shirts are back in a big way.  

We are totally in love with the new breed of vintage-esque tees.  Not vintage but there is so much love and graphics put into them they are just as great.  

Here are a few we are dreaming of, drooling over, dressing in this fall...

  1. GET IN OUR CLOSETS!  Dear Mate the Label...we want..no...NEED everything you have...including this The Smokies tee
  2. I stopped dead in my tracks and gasped when I saw this...now I just need to find my size
  3. We are HUGE Sugar High Love Stoned fans and this Love Stoner tee has us all in love
  4. Not sure why this tee makes us so happy...but maybe because we are little BBs...

Better make room in your closets!  We are.... which is your fave?

No Hassle with these tassels!

For as long as we can remember tassels represented something exotic, luxurious and a little naughty. Not only are they always associated with flappers and burlesque dancers in our minds, they are also tied together with rich velvet curtains and beautiful, ornate homes. 

Scarlett O'Hara made a dress out of velvet curtains. 

Scarlett O'Hara made a dress out of velvet curtains. 

Right now we are lusting after log shoulder brushing tassel earrings. 

Beaded and blue like these by Bauble Bar, Sleek easy and classic black Adia Kilbur. Detailed and beautiful enough for Cleopatra, by Lizzie Fortunato or just the most perfect shade of mustard gold tied in a simple knot by Vanessa Mooney we are crazy for tassels right now. 

Every time we get dressed, we just know we need these earrings to push our outifts over the top. 

Because, if you can crop George out of a picture of Amal Clooney because her tassel earring is getting all the attention.... Well you know that's one hell of an accessory.

Lounging Around

After weeks of non stop planning, flower mart trips, balloon store visits (we are very particular about our color combos) marigold stringing, party supply renting, 3 ft balloon blowing we are ready to snuggle up, lounge about and get lost in a good book or the September Issue thats calling our names... oh wait!  We are moms, go getters, wives, women, chauffeurs, care takers, lunch makers, path runners, weight lifting ladies... we have no time to lounge but it sounds dreamy!

As soon as we got home after a 12 hour day of party prep and champagne drinking, all we wanted to do was throw on cute cozy clothes and sleep but instead we threw on old sweats and our husbands tees.  Now that's not to say that look isn't cute (because it is one of our faves) but sometimes its nice to let the sweet feminine side out with a splash of cozy.  It would be nice to think we were the girls that threw on slips and negliges but we aren't so the next best thing are cute yet cozy clothes.  Here's a few we are putting in our virtual carts right now

Best part of snuggling up in these?  You can wear them out the door and no one will be the wiser that you are in your jammies.

Throw on a pair of high tops, a vintage tee and an army jacket and you are ready to run around...take them off when you get home and your ready for wine...see?  We save you time and money!  Double duty living.

How ever you lounge just remember...you're worth it!  Relax...snuggle...

Taste the rainbow

With temperatures going up fast in Lala land we can do nothing but dream of lazy days on the beach in a tropical land.  Dreaming of air scented with plumeria blossoms, sandy toes and skies filled with rainbows from a warm summer rain.  But alas this is reality and we may not be able to gaze into tropical rainbow filled skies but we can remind ourselves of vacation days by wearing the rainbow. 

Be the rainbow...
