3 Perfect Holiday Dresses

Happy Holidays everyone! We can't believe Christmas is only a week away! Woohoo! With Christmas Eve AND New Years Eve falling on Sunday this year, we thought we'd share some of our favorite holiday dresses and some different ways to style them. We're wearing three of our favorite dresses we've found this season in the pictures below, and also linked some other options at the bottom of this post. Hope you can find something you feel beautiful in and love them as much as we do!

Statement sleeves are EVERYTHING this year, and I'm all about midi dresses so this was a win win for me! The sleeves are so fun and festive (perfect for the holidays!) but the dress is also great because it can be worn for any occasion year round! The shoes I paired it with (pictured below) are on sale for 50% off here!

Another midi dress that just screams Christmas (yay)! This is the softest, most comfortable dress and pairs great with booties like the ones Regans wearing (found here), or a black tight and cranberry pumps like the ones Paige wore (linked above).

3. Sidney's Dress. Ruched Midi Dress

If you know Sidney, you know this is about as dressed up as she gets! She'd rather be skateboarding or catching a wave than dressed up any day, so this dress is perfect for her and anyone else who loves comfort over fashion! With the flattering ruched sides it's great for showing off your curves while also camouflaging anything you've got going on in your mid section ;) Pair this with a casual ankle bootie like Sidney's (found here) or dress it up with a black higher heel like these.

Girlfriends Giftguide

Another gift guide coming at ya! This ones for any lady in your life. The every(day) girl, the fashionista, the sporty/athletic girl, and the working (boss babe) girl. 

When I'm shopping for a girlfriend, whether it's one of my sisters, my mom, a friend, etc., I always look for things I wish I could buy for myself! Haha.  When you bring home a gift, and have a hard time wrapping it up because you just want to keep it for yourself, you know you've bought something great in my opinion.  Giving someone a gift you're excited about, then having them open it and love it is seriously the best feeling!

Scroll thought the widgets below to see some of our favorite lady gift ideas!

THE EVERY GIRL

These are gift ideas for the girl who likes to keep it simple. Basic tees, plain colors that go with everything, cute sweaters for layering, a yummy candle, a comfortable wrap dress. 


THE FASHIONISTA

These are gifts for the girl who's always in with the latest trends, and who loves branching out a little with what she wears. Bell sleeves, over-the-knee boots, and those fisherman hats that some of us just can't pull off.  Leave it to your fashionista bestie to rock all the latest styles and be perfectly confident wearing them. We're including velvet bodysuits in this category because yes, the bodysuit is more of an "every girl" buy, but add some velvet and the fashionistas in your life with LOVE these.


THE SPORTY GIRL

Sporty girls are the easiest to buy for.  Anything Nike, Lululemon, a cute pair of sneakers, or a sport bra this girl will love. Can you ever have too many sports bras? Or for lounge wear, Ivy Park sweatpants and sweatshirts are the best!


THE WORKING GIRL

There's nothing like a sleek business dress and some cutie office supplies to get this girl excited to head in to work! A new laptop case, a pretty new top, or a fun hat are also all things the working girls in your life will love.


A Friendly Reminder and Cute Outfit Post

Hey guys! Just a simple outfit post coming at ya today :) As we've mentioned in a couple of our instagrams, we took pictures in a bunch of our current favorite outfits recently and are excited to share them with you guys! Fall fashion is the best :) That being said, we kind of feel like outfit posts are so "fake" and we feel kind of annoying doing them at the same time haha.

Liiiike in the picture above for example! Just casually laughing at nothing at all while obviously trying to still pose and look skinny for a picture (insert eye roll emoji).

Sometimes we get annoyed with girls on Instagram trying so hard to look cute, while pushing clothes/products/services on us, and pretending like their lives are perfect. Then we're like...wait, that's kind of us! Oh no!

We're all just trying to feel cute, and be happy aren't we? Nobody is perfect, everybody has problems! It's important to rememeber that COMPARISON IS THE THIEF OF JOY! We hope to inspire you with cute outfit ideas, fun recipes and other things that make us happy :) We DON'T want to try to come off as perfect and we don't want to be annoying, but we also don't want to post pictures of us in real life looking looking like a hot mess! Ha

ANYWAYS, we just thought we'd put that out there because we really needed a reminder for OURSELVES when scrolling through blogs and pretty Instagram accounts. It's hard sometimes to remember to just be inspired by what you see on social media, and not to start comparing yourself to WHO you see on there. We all have trials for a reason to help us learn, grow and be shaped into the person we're meant to be. Although it's so HARD sometimes, let's try to be grateful and look for the meaning, lessons and sometimes even BLESSINGS in our trials instead of feeling down, jealous, and comparing our lives to others. 

Hope you're all having a great week!


Transition to Fall with Madewell

Oh hey! (Insert hand wave emoji). It's been a while since we've done an outfit post! With Fall finally here (or cute outfit season) and Madewell having a big sale this weekend, we thought it was the perfect time!

If we don't say so ourselves, how cute are both of our tops?? :) You can get them both at (you guessed it) Madewell, and they are having a sale through the weekend for 20% off $100 and 30% off $200!

Also, if you STILL haven't gotten yourself a pair of high waisted denim, just trust us and buy some already. They will make your legs look sky high and skinnier than they really are. Need we say anything else?

Paige is wearing a 10" rise from Madewell, but those might be a little TOO high if it's you're first pair. We recommend these if you're getting your first pair :) We've posted about them before, and will definitely be posting about them again. They're our absolute favorite.

Also, Regan's cute watch is from Arvo!

 We love their watches. So elegant and simple :) Scroll to the bottom for links to our whole outfits!


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.


Forgiving Beach Dresses

Are we the only ones who save a loose, flowy beach dress or two for the last couple days of vaca? I usually will be looking pretty good at the beginning of a vacation because I've been preparing with eating clean and working out, but who wants to eat clean on vacation?? By the last few days the burgers, shakes and fries are usually starting to show and it's nice to swap out the mom shorts and crop tops for flowy, forgiving dresses :) We've linked our favorites at the bottom of this post!

These pics were taken on the last day of our Bear Lake trip over the 4th of July holiday weekend! We LOVE Bear Lake so much and will be sharing a post soon with more pictures from the trip, and our guide to traveling to Bear Lake with our favorite things to do, where to stay, the best places to eat and the best time to go! Stay tuned!

Bodysuits and High Waisted Denim

Hey guys! It's been a while since we all three did a fashion post, but we just had to get on and share about on of our favorite new trends! You've probably seen some of the bodysuits that have been popping up recently in clothing stores...

If you're like us, your first thought was something along the lines of "What the heck is that? How uncomfortable and unflattering!". Enter high rise denim. It wasn't until we fell in love with a couple new cuts of high waisted jeans that we really started to get into the bodysuits! Now, we can't get enough!

We LOVE bodysuits with high waisted jeans for so many reasons, but mainly because it's so flattering! The bodysuit stays smooth all day and doesn't bunch up and wrinkle, or come untucked like most shirts. It also smooths out the belly area, and the high rise denim covers the lower belly, accentuating the smallest part of your waist! So, excuse us while we wear the same outfit every day from now on ;)

If you haven't gotten a pair of high rise denim yet, you NEED to get in on this shiz :-P They make your legs look sky high and are so much more flattering than low rise! Our absolute favorite cut of high rise denim is the Citizen of Humanity 'Rocket' jean, although they can be a little pricey. A great alternative that we also love are Madewell high rise jeans. They're about half the price and still super cute!

As far as bodysuits go, Madewell definitely has the most comfortable. All of their body suits are super stretchy and comfy, and don't ride up! Revolve also has a great selection and a lot more options to choose from.

We've linked our favorite bodysuits and high waisted denim below, as well as all of our outfit details :) Happy shopping people!
