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

Normally we aren't the most trendy of girls.  Sure we fall prey to the newest and cutest denim here and there and we have never met a jumpsuit trend we didn't like.  But when it comes to the latest and "greatest" from the world of trendy fashion, we tend to trust our instincts and personal style more.  We gravitate to what suits us in that moment instead of what the stores are asking us to buy.  

KILLING IT!  Love her style (Isabel Marant sweater)

KILLING IT!  Love her style (Isabel Marant sweater)

Until now...last season designers showed a ton of lace up tops, pants and dresses.  And this ode to the 70's trend is RIGHT up our hippie lovin alley.  The almost sexy but totally not slutty trend is perfect for us girls who don't enjoy letting our boobs and cleavage hang out but still want to not be totally covered up.

  • one- Daryl K x Madewell (on sale!) love the sailor vibes. Pair it with hightop chucks
  • two- You had us at stars Nasty Gal.  The sweet/sexiness of this sundress kills us
  • three- Love the rusty floral print of the UO flow summer top.  This and denim cutoffs!
  • four- Perfect for a brunch, meeting, date...anything.  This 3 Dots dress is great for summer.
  • five- Oh Madewell.  We love you.  And stripes.  
  • six- Little sexy with a lot of style.  This denim dress from FP is perfect.  

We hope this trend stays around a bit.  It feels so good to be so cute with a splash of naughty, a hint of sexy and a lot of style with out having to do much except for change out of our sweat pants and baby daddy's old t-shirts. 

Happy Shopping!  

 

 

That 70's show- Flared Jeans are back baby!

We are denim babies.  Obsessed with it, born into it (one of our dads even owned a denim line in the 70s & 80s), and lives revolve around what looks best with it.  We have way too many pairs to admit and for some reason our virtual carts are filled with even more pair.

We love whats happing right now in denim.  The flare is back!  No, not the 90's boot cut or even yet another new version of the skinny jeans.  We are talking gorgeously cut, leg lengthening, body slimming flares.   The clean lines and simple details modernize how we think of flares.  Now we know what you're thinking..."but I just figured out what to wear with my skinnies!"   Trust us, your skinnies wont be kicked out,  they still have a very important place in your wardrobe.  But your new flares will be your best friends at work, girls night, date night, shopping trips and coffee dates.  

By far one of the CUTEST girls ever...photog Vanessa Jackman in our ultimate dream outfit.

We have a few pairs already but can't help but covet a few more.  Help...we have fallen into love with flares and we can't stop thinking up new ways to wear them. 

one/two/three/four/five/six/seven

Wear them with a stellar blazer and stilettos that look great under these flares and just as good with your skinnies or a dress.

Wear them with a nod to the decade they came from with this seasons cutest throwback blouse.

LOVE this one from Flynn Skye...chic, sexy, edgy with a vintage twist.  Need, want, have to have!

We love wearing them casually chic with a yummy thin sweater.  

Oh hi there CDG yumminess.   There is a chance we can not go on with out you..please come home with us. 

Or just throw them on with a casual button up thats as cute as it is stylish.

Trust us, polish up your look this fall with a great pair of flares and a cute top and strut your way past the ripped up skinnies knowing you have never looked better.
