chloe + isabel collab

when friend and rep for chloe and isabel, emma mcelroy, reached out to us for a collab, we were so excited. the jewelry, especially in her collection here, is stunning, unique, and timeless. the items are reasonably priced and quite durable. some of our favorites were this choker, these earrings, and this bracelet. (along with so many more!) we were able to try them on, look through each piece in person,  and have some fun pictures to prove it!

september

we have recently been inspired by another blog duo-  the messy heads – and their monthly posts that include all their favorite trends from the previous month. after reading through their september favorites, we decided we have to do our own! so, here we go.

september! 

fun : 

drive with your windows down one more time before it gets too cold.

cleaning: not so fun but very rewarding.

color coding closets.

adult coloring books.

jams :

i hate u i love u // gnash

roses // chainsmokers

hide away // ben rector

waiting for love// avicii

come back to me// urban cone with tove lo

the emotion// børns

clothes :

madewell ankle boots: the ultimate fall necessity. madewell’s choices are endless. and well you’re at, check out their style blog.

patagonia: laura is getting ready for some outdoor gear for her trip to argentina in december.

winter gear: we know it’s a little early, but there are some really cool places to stock up on winter accessories like krochet kids who support a great cause.

.com :

christmas countdown: we are way too excited for snow and christmas shopping. (only 79 days!!)

damn delicious: we love the layout, it makes finding new recipes easy.

man repeller’s ode to summer: manrepeller’s official farewell to summer because as much as we like to deny it, it is gone until next year.
