21 Sep Cheeky T-shirts & Denim Layers

Outfit Crushes: graphic t-shirt – Vamp / NA-KD, leggings – Lulu Lemon, sneakers – Adidas, denim jacket – SheIn

OK, so it’s definitely no secret that I’m a fan of starts and graphic t-shirts, so when I saw this cheeky combination of the two, I felt like I needed it in my wardrobe. I love the olive green color! I think it would be so flattering on so many different skin tones & complexions. I stumbled across a new boutique (Vamp) that just opened in the Short North and picked up a few goodies from them. They carry tons of my favorite brands/vendors, so I’m pretty excited to see what they start to carry for Fall/Winter. (More blog posts featuring their clothing coming soon!)

I decided to layer this t-shirt with a light wash denim jacket from SheIn. I can honestly say a denim jacket will be my go-to for this Fall. I think it’s the perfect layering piece for almost anything. You could style it with a dress, leggings, t-shirts, blouses, etc. It definitely helps to dress down any look & make it appropriate for almost anything. I love the wash on this one in particular & light was denim is definitely trending. The best part is it is on sale for under $30. Links to check it out will be below. I would definitely recommend sizing up.

I finished the look with my fav pair of leggings from Lulu & some white Adidas sneakers. As I mentioned above, all of the items in this outfit will be linked below with similar or an exact match 🙂

I can’t wait to show you guys some of the looks I come up with for Fall this year, so stay tuned!

21 Sep Two Feathers x Outfit Crush

Outfit Crushes: black pajama cardigan- Two Feathers, cream lace up long sleeve- Two Feathers, striped blouse dress- Two Feathers

Happy Thursday babes! Mel & I want to share a new up & coming company with you called Two Feathers. To start you guys already know how much we love supporting domestic businesses.. & this adorable shop is based out of California. To follow up I’m going to share some of the things I love about the clothing: 


-The style is chic, classic, & timeless

This bullet point pretty much speaks for itself. When checking out the company you will realize most, if not all, of the color choices are limited to neutrals. The fabric and pattern choices are classic and timeless. You’ll see blacks, whites, and grays with maybe a pin stripe, lace, or tie detailing. This is great because when you’re purchasing these higher quality items you’ll know they won’t be out of style next season. 

-The pieces are staple necessities & versatile in function 

As you can probably tell from the variety of outfits I chose, these pieces are extremely versatile. My favorite piece I wore probably has to be the black pajama jacket. It could be worn to almost anything from a day at work to a night out with friends. 

-The quality is great 

My philosophy is when spending a little bit more than what you usually would, it only makes sense when two things are true. 1) You’ll wear the pieces enough to get your money’s worth 2) The price reflects the quality. As far as this company goes, 1) check 2) check. 

Do us a favor and check out this brand at www.twofeathers.co and have an amazing rest of your week!

02 Sep Navy Stripes & Distressed Denim

Outfit Crushes: denim jacket – fab’rik, striped romper – fab’rik, sunnies – F21.

I will forever & always be a sucker for stripes. No matter what color they are, they will always be one of my favorite patterns. Vertical stripes are always best for my body shape because they make me look longer, especially through the leg area, where I need the extra length! hahaha, but seriously. This adorable navy & white striped romper from fab’rik was too cute to pass up.

I know Summer is soon to be over, so I figured I’d style this one from day to night with a jacket. The distressing on this particular style helps to add a little edge to the look. I finished the look with some sneakers & as always my favorite sunnies from F21. They’re so cheap, but also so practical because I know I break/lose sunglasses way too often to invest at this time in my life. Hope everyone’s having the best back to school season yetttttttt!

10 Aug Gingham Love & Black Denim

Outfit Crushes: gingham top – SheIn, denim – Old Navy, heels – Calvin Klein, sunnies – fab’rik, bag – Hollister.

Not sure why I haven’t purchased much gingham this Summer because I’m honestly a huge fan of the print. I think it will always remain a classic and I’m so glad it’s trending this season. I love this lil top from Shein because it’s actually a crop and I think the spaghetti straps are so flattering. I would highly recommend sizing up at least one size in this top because the black lining on the inside of the shirt is rather snug for bigger busts. These black jeans are an oldie, but a goodie and I can’t recommend Old Navy denim enough. It is super stretchy and comfortable for girls with curves like me. I would recommend the Rock Star fit in your true US Women’s Size for reference. I decided to finish the look with a simple cross body bag, sunnies, and some taupe heels. I wore this outfit to the office and then for the evening with friends, so it’s super versatile from day to night. All pieces will be linked with direct or similar items below.

24 Jun Summer Stripes & SheIn

Outfit Crushes: striped top – SheIn, shorts – (fab’rik) Sadie & Sage, sunnies – fab’rik.

Happy Summer, everyone! Super excited to be working with SheIn for another year now. They always have super trendy pieces for a very reasonable price. Bri & I have featured countless looks from them and you guys always seem to love the stuff on their website even more. This striped top is from shein.com. I love the large eyelets on the back of the neckline with the lace up detailing. I decided to keep it simple with a pair of black shorts from Sadie & Sage— their website is launching soon and I am beyond excited to shop more of their items! For now, I get all my Sadie & Sage items from two boutiques: fab’rik Easton & Pitaya. Sunnies are also from fab’rik Easton.

07 Jun Vaca Chic with fab’rik

Outfit Crushes: entire look is fab’rik

If you’ve been a long time follower of ours you’ll know that another collaboration with fab’rik has been well overdue. We have been rocking fab’rik since last SUMMER ever since we discovered the brand. Thankfully, the first and only Ohio location is extremely local for Bri & I and we take full advantage of it. If you don’t find something you love online, (and you’re a 614 native) you’ll definitely have to check out the Easton location. They get new styles in multiple times a week and they only carry 6 of each item, so there’s a guarantee not everyone will have what you have. Aside from housing incredibly trendy pieces, the store owners are some of my favorite people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Talk about some selfless, welcoming, and humble human beings. If you get the opportunity to talk to the mother/daughter duo that owns the store, tell them Mel sent ya 🙂 They also post secret discounts, sales, and new products on their store Instagram page, which you can check out here @fabrikeaston

I will actually be in store THIS SATURDAY 6/10 from 2-4pm to gift a fab’rik surprise to a lucky winner in store. I’ll draw and announce the winner during the event and give tips on how to style the piece. So come on in & say hello.

Now let’s get onto the outfit!

I’m typically not a colorful person, nor a pattern person, but I honestly fell in love with this palm print romper when I saw it. I think it is the perfect piece to wear this season, whether you’re on vacation or doing fun Summer activities. The frill on the hem of the shorts makes it very feminine and flirty. The plunging neckline was a bit intimidating for me since I have a larger bust, but I decided to throw on a lacey bralette to feel a little more comfortable. This is totally up to you. There’s also a smaller button closure to cover it up completely.

Since the romper is such an incredible statement piece, I wanted to step up my accessorizing, but still keep it simple and cohesive. I decided to style it with some sparkle gold hoops, a thin gold bangle, and some KILLER nude and gold heels. If you haven’t peeped the gold heel…….. link below is all I’m saying!

Hopefully this look gave you some Summer time vaca inspiration for this year. Fab’rik has tons of super cute printed pieces if this is up your ally. As always, links to everything are down below.

31 May Shop Tobi x Outfit Crush

Outfit Crushes: dress 1- Tobi, dress 2- Tobi 

So if you’re a loyal reader this isn’t your first time seeing Tobi. Mel and I have had the amazing opportunity to collab with Tobi, one of our favorite brands for shopping dresses and rompers. We have both been loyal Tobi customers since high school and have pretty much bought everything from casual to formal wear. Fun fact– I even styled a Tobi dress for one of my homecomings! Mel recently featured two rompers in her post “Casual Rompers & Everyday Looks” and I’m excited to share two of my favorite dresses from the website with you. 


My first pick is probably my favorite. The dress is called “Embrace the Plunge” and comes in black, olive, and rose. I am tempted to buy the other two colors because the dress is super cute and easy to style. I decided to wear my vans with because I wanted to go more casual but sandals or wedges would be another great option too. The only thing I would say about this dress is that it is probably not an ideal option if you don’t want to show cleavage (especially if you’re larger chested). The plunge dips down pretty deep, but I was fine wearing a halter bralette.


I love my second pick– the Cordelia sexy cream skater dress. It’s simple and cute, while the material makes it more of a formal dress. My friend wore this dress for a fraternity formal and I fell in love with it. When I found out Tobi still had it in stock I knew I needed to get the same one for myself even though I don’t have an event in mind to wear it to. It comes in four colors and is only $56 which makes for a pretty cheap special occasion outfit. 

Don’t worry if my picks aren’t your style, Tobi has so hundreds and hundreds of options I know you’ll fall in love with. Also GOOD NEWS– if you’re a new customer you can receive 50% off your first order! Links are below for you as always 🙂

28 May Lulu Lulu & More Lulu

Outfit Crushes: leggings- Lulu Lemon, tank- Lulu Lemon, sports bra- Avocado, water bottle- Corksicle, sneakers- Nike

Hey there! So is anyone reading this obsessed with Lulu Lemon? I’m pretty confident you are because Lulu is something no one can stay away from. Although no matter who you are, I promise there’s no chance you’re any more obsessed with this brand than I am. Yes, Lulu is made for and perfect for active wear, but I catch myself wearing it everywhere even if I’m not working out.

Reasons not to love Lulu:

1) The one and only obvious reason– it’s a bit pricy

Reasons to love Lulu & why the price is worth it:

1) Style—Let’s be real and start again with some known facts… Lulu is the best looking active wear brand out there. Don’t @ me on this one!

2) Comfort—I can personally say I’ve NEVER worn a brand more comfortable than this one. Sure all styles fit differently depending on the cut and what not, but overall I have been very impressed with the overall comfort. My favorite article from Lulu is the leggings I’m featuring here and the reason being because of how soft they are. The align pant is not only high waisted to suck the stomach in (a gift much needed), but the material is to die for. I swear I feel more naked wearing these than I actually do when I’m not wearing clothes!

3) Quality—Lulu Lemon always uses materials of high quality. Elasthanne is just one material I noticed added to many of the garments to enhance stretch. Most, if not all, of the fabrics are carefully selected to ensure breathability.

Those 3 reasons to love this brand are just the main ones, but because I can’t write forever I’ll let you decide on the rest yourself. Attached below are the items I’m wearing and some of my favorite workout gear from Lulu. Happy shopping!

25 May Wear Commando x Outfit Crush

Kerry O’Brien, Commando founder and designer, states, “We want to make women look and feel fabulous. That’s why we combine luxury fabrics and flawless fits to create styles that are the foundations of a great wardrobe.” Well ladies we have to say that Commando styled us in some adorable garments and we are definitely feeling a little bit more than fabulous. 

We originally stumbled across the brand via Instagram through other influencers and celebrity pictures where @wearcommando was tagged. After checking out the website, we were super excited to work with this brand. Commando specializes in luxury undergarments. They do bras and underwear, body suits, sleepwear and lounge wear. What we love most about the products is how high quality they are. The fabrics are very comfortable and breathable, which is a deal breaker when you’re debating on splurging on luxury bras and underwear. Even the mesh cut outs and lace featured in some of their designs is very soft and flexible, so you not only look great when you’re wearing them, but you genuinely feel great too. A few of our favorite items that we tried out from the brand are the mesh panties and the lace cami.

We can honestly say we will be ordering again from them in the future because even after wearing and washing the products multiple times, the fabric still stays in mint condition and the designs stay completely intact which is very appreciated from a customer’s perspective. In terms of sizing, they have a size chart available on the website, which was very useful when ordering. We are going to link a few of our favorites down below for you guys to check out. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions before purchasing something. We’d be glad to help!
