Winter Uniform

Regan here! Let me first say that the photos below are not super realistic. I’m usually NOT this casual, cool and collected heading out the door when I leave the house (obviously). More like, 40 lb. diaper bag around one arm, 25 pound toddler on the other, and a handful of whatever else I can possibly carry anytime I have to venture out of the house. I know any mom can relate!

It’s pretty rare that I get dressed up in a cute outfit during the week. I usually rotate between the several colors of my favorite Madewell tee that I have, front tucked in to some high waisted jeans and call it good. Luckily, THIS COAT is a new favorite of mine, and throwing it over any outfit makes me look totally put together.

This coat has also made winter more bearable because it’s super warm! Random side note…my first couple years living in Utah were kind of miserable. I haaated it here and was determined to move back to California ASAP. Well…over eight years later and I’m still here! Utah has grown on me though. I think moving from our small, dark apartment that we lived in our first few years, and now having a home where we get natural light and can have plants in every corner giving off oxygen has made all the difference. I am still determined to move back to California, but Utah is not as awful as I used to think it was! Cute coats and booties also help 😉

Perfect White Pants

A good pair of white a white pants that don't add on the lbs or show off your undies is hard to come by! We love white pants for summer and feel like they brighten up any outfit.  We've rounded up a few of our favorite, tried and true pairs below.  Links at the bottom of the post!

Regan's are obviously her faves, since she's worn them in the last two posts 😂.  Hey, when you know, you know!

Oceanside Harbor

You all know by now that we love a good casual summer look with a cute, comfortable wedge! Yep, this is our go-to for sure.

It's actually so awesome having sisters (and a mom) who all share the same style.  We all own the same tops and jeans in different colors/washes and can easily borrow and rotate clothes between each other 😂.  I (Regan) am actually borrowing my mom's Madewell top here, and Paige's necklace. Hehe.

You may have already seen Paige's bag in her favorite things post.  It's super inexpensive and adds something so cute to any #basic outfit. Details below!

6 Ways to Wear Your New Favorite Accessory!

I feel like that title is suuuper long, but also very accurate.

If you haven't jumped on the hair/neck/wrist scarf train yet, you need to get in on this! These cute scarves/bandanas that are so in right now are the perfect accessory to add to any outfit.  The one's I've found and am wearing in this post are also super inexpensive.  Today I'm sharing my favorite ways to wear them.

1. Tied around the wrist.

This was the first way I ever accessorized with a scarf.  It's subtle, but adds a cute little pop of color to any neutral outfit.  To tie, fold the scarf into a triangle, then continue to fold until it becomes long and thin.  I placed my wrist (palm facing down) on top of the middle section of the scarf, then wrapped each end up and around my wrist twice, so that the two ends ended up on top of my wrist.  I then tied the ends in a double knot. 

2. Tied at the end of a braid.

I love this style, especially when wearing a hat! I think this looks best with a looser braid, and with extra hair left out on the ends.  Secure your braid with a hair tie, then double knot your scarf (after you've folded it up long and narrow), with the knot above the hair tie so it stays secure. 

3. Around a top knot.

Lately I've been loving wearing my (3-day post washed) hair in a half-up top knot! I love having my hair out of my face, and this is a cute way to keep it up while still having some hair showing. First, secure your hair in a top knot using a hair tie. I do my half-up top knots by wrapping my hair around like a ballerina bun, then pulling it apart a little to create a messier look. With this look, you want your bun to be pretty high on top of your head so that you can still see some hair over the top of the scarf.

 Take your folded up scarf and start with the middle part of the scarf at the back of your bun, tie both ends around to the front, cross over, and then cross over again in the back.  Tie the two ends in a double knot at the front of the bun.  You may have to adjust how many times you tie it around depending on how long your scarf is.

4. Around your neck.

This is probably the most common way you see people wearing scarves. Again, I love how it adds just a little something to a simple outfit. For this look, just fold up your scarf so it's long and narrow again, then start with the middle of the scarf at the back of your neck and tie the ends in front.  I like to tie mine off to the side.

5. Wear as a headband.

This is another cute and fun way to keep some of my hair back and out of my face. To tie, tuck your hair behind your ears, then place the middle part of the scarf under the bottom of your hair, and tie the ends together at the top, right over where your hair is parted.

6. Around a messy bun.

This is similar to the half-up top knot look, but I love wearing a scarf this way when I'm throwing all my hair up at the pool or beach! It just looks cuter 🙃

7. BONUS STYLE: Tie around your favorite bag.

Had to add this in because I love the look of a scarf that matches your outfit, tied around your bag!

I linked the two scarves pictured in the photos above, as well as some of my other favorite scarves below. Although the scarf in the beach photos is currently sold out 😭 but the store I got it from has some other super cute ones.  Find them here (use code saltyblondes for free shipping on your order).

Tie Front Summer Tops

Hi friends! We just wanted to put together a quick post sharing another one of our favorite trends this summer.  Tie front tops!

We love this trend for summer because it just adds such a cute element to a basic tee with jeans look! Some of our favorites are from Madewell (pictured below), but we found lots of other cute ones too that we've linked at the bottom of this post!

Insta Outfit Recap

Hi guys!  It's been way too long since we've done an outfit post.  I feel like we always say this, but our lives have been crazy, and we've just been linking outfits on insta as of late!

I finally had some time to sit down and put our last few outfits we've posted about on Instagram together in a post.  So here you go. Best part is, most of our outfits are on major sale now that spring is almost here!

Two fun weekend/date night looks.  Loving this mauve/pink color of Paige's sweater & in the print of Regan's top.  We didn't plan to pair these two outfits together for our shoot, but have to say, they coordinated pretty perfectly :)


This next look is definitely my (Regan) go-to.  Some high-waisted denim with a casual tee. You can find me in this outfit every. single. day. Loving the Sol Angeles x Anthrologie tees lately (even though they are a bit pricey for a t-shirt), and these slip on sneakers have been my absolute favorite during the "warmer" winter days here in Utah. I have them in two colors, and the black pair I'm wearing below are lined with fur (yasss).


These are a couple more cute, everyday looks that are a little more put together.  Paige's boots make such a fun statement and are currently on major sale!


This last look is all about the neutrals! Nothing better than cozy neutral sweaters that go with everything!

Now, time to bring out the spring clothes! Hello cropped denim, cute wedges, and lightweight jackets!


Burgundy Birks

I jumped on the Birkenstock train a couple weeks ago when I saw this cute burgundy pair in a store and I have to say, I GET IT.

Why I waited so long to get a pair of these magical sandals that make you feel like you're walking on clouds...I have no idea.

I will also say, I've seen a few pairs that were little manly looking (sorry not sorry), and I think that made me a little skeptical.  Also the fact that I'm not hipster enough, but let's just pretend I'm a hipster when I wear these, k?

Summer's basically over, but that won't stop me from taking every last chance to wear sandals that I can get before it's boot season (or Ugg season for me) forever. And by forever I mean March 2018 which seems like a VERY long ways away.  Thank you Utah.

This burgundy color makes these Birks the perfect transition from sandals to fall booties and I am in love! Scroll down for all outfit details, including my baseball hat that matches perfectly. 

Side note: my husband won't let me rock any team EXCEPT for San Diego, so that means I've made it my goal to own this hat in every color - find them all below.  San Diego fans, you're welcome.


Flannels

Adding a flannel tied around the waist can add so much to any outfit. Not only do they create an extra layer and added style to a basic tee and jeans or dress, but they are also super flattering and can be used as a cover up when tied around the waist. We'll actually be talking about this more in a future post!

Today we wanted to show how verstitile a flannel can be. Below are two looks showing how easily you can dress a flannel up, or wear it casual.

Express has some awesome oversized plaid shirts right now at great price points! Links to all outfit details and some of our favorite flannels are below!

If you're like us and frequent the local boutiques here in Utah or California, you may have spotted (and even purchased) one of the cute graphic tees by the fresh new brand Salt & Pepper Tees.


We've been fans of theirs since we first discovered them at Amara, so we couldn't have been more excited when they contacted us and asked if we wanted to rep some of their graphic tees on Salty Blondes!  Their California based shop is right up our alley. They even sent our third sister, Sidney, a tee which we included in her Christmas package :)
