The Brunch Club

Alright, show of hands – who’s ready for the weekend? What’s that? Everyone is?

I know this will come as no surprise, but I absolutely live for the weekends. It’s the only time I get to dress like my truest self. You know, stop raiding Barry Manilow’s wardrobe and instead smear a bunch of black shit under my eyes? Oh and the layers. Can’t forget to wear ALL of the layers (some call a thermal, a flannel, a jacket, a scarf, and an overcoat overkill. Me? I call it Saturday morning #AlwaysCold). Well guys, I’ve got great news – we’re almost there! It’s time to count down the hours until we can break out and run free. So, huddle up with your Saturday squad (the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, the criminal…) and start making plans! Get loud (real loud… like, ruckus levels of loud), get crazy, dance a little… Mess with the bull and get the horns! (just don’t tape Larry Lester’s buns together, okay?) Me? Oh, I’ll be alone, dancin’ you know it, baby… (so, won’t you come see about me?)

DON’T YOOOOOOOOOOU, FORGET ABOUT MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

The New Romantics

Judging by the number of extremely pointed jewelry commercials hitting the airwaves (“you’ve been together a long time… like, a long, long time… like a loooooooong, long time…hint, hint”) and the sudden infestation of hearts on basically everything, it must be time for everyone’s favorite February holiday! That’s right, President’s Day is just around the corner! Just kidding… Yes, Valentine’s Day is next week and we don’t know about you, but we’re just a pair of girls standing in front of their closets asking for them to magically have the perfect outfit. Luckily for us, our friends at Paisley Boutique have all of the cutest styles (you know, if looking like a really hip, cool girl is your chosen aesthetic), so we won’t be standing there for long!

 

Whether you’re looking to amp up date night or just looking to avoid the pink/red vibe, a monochromatic look with subtle metallic accents is a perfectly understated and chic way to stand out in a sea of lace and tulle. These gray jeans are as comfortable as they are cute and we love the way this flowing blouse plays with the structure of the rest of the look (they were on to something when they said opposites attract). And can we get a round of applause for that bag already? So. flipping. CUTE.

Monochrome not your thing or maybe you’re in search of something a tad dressier? We love the crazy flattering drape on this burgundy bodycon dress! These taupe peep-toe high-heeled bootie-mules (a term we just made up) and cool accessories like these geometric cage earrings and blue leather wristlet ensure that this look is just as unexpected and cool as it is flirty and fierce.
