We Love: Iconography.

If you’ve taken a peek at our website lately, then you already know what’s on our minds — iconography. And. we. are. obsessed. It’s not just the delicate chains and sweet symbols that have us hooked, but the tradition and history that come with each of these icons. We love learning about different cultures and their take on the hamsa, the palm shaped amulet you’ve seen us wear. The hamsa’s beginnings have been traced to ancient Mesopotamia as a sign of protection that represent blessings, power and strength. We don’t know if one pendant will reap all of those benefits, but we’re definitely willing to wear one just in case! Here are a few of the ways we want to incorporate the amulet into our wardrobe, home and life.

Blogger Style: Texturized.

We can’t believe we’re about to say this, but, we think summer might be slowly coming to an end. We almost needed to wear a sweater today, and it looks like Kim {of Penny Pincher Fashion} is feeling the same way, too. We love how she combines three different textures in one outfit like a pro: leather, wool, and (faux) crocodile. When there’s this much going on, simple accessories like a pavé ring and pearl studs are the perfect addition. So chic!

We Love: Earth Tones.

It’s easy to lose sight of Mother Nature when you live in a concrete jungle like we do — it isn’t until leaving the city that we realize it’s been forever since we’ve seen a tree. For the days and weeks (okay, maybe even months!) that we don’t get out and enjoy nature, we try and invite it into our homes and wardrobes. Whether it’s textiles made with natural dye, beauty products created from organic ingredients, or simply nature-inspired baubles, we’re happy to get a little more down to earth. Check out some of the Earth-inspired goodness we’ve been coveting lately!

 

Blogger Style: Pop of Color.

There’s something about white denim and turquoise stones that just scream summer, and we totally love it. One thing we love about a good pair of jeans and a favorite black blouse is that they can be worn so many different ways, and that’s exactly what Sydne {of Sydne Style} did. She took this chic outfit up a notch with metallic heels, a patterned clutch, and turquoise earrings for a complete ensemble. And don’t even get us started on her hair… a perfectly side swept ponytail is the cherry on top.

How To: Dress Boho for Beach & City.

Festival season and summer heat has us reaching for fringed, tribal-inspired fashion and jewelry, no matter the occasion. How are we styling these boho baubles? We put together a cheat sheet of ways to wear these stunners for relaxing days at the beach and busy days in the city.

After a long week at work, we are beyond ready to hit the beach— and when it comes to weekend-wear, our motto is more is more! For a killer off-duty look, opt for a cover-up in a bright, geometric motif, and pair it with a modern bikini top and crochet black shortsA beachy hat and slide sandals keep us comfortable in the heat and protected from the sun. The perfect finishing touch? A turquoise fringe bib elevates this look to next level. You’ll be turning heads all day!

Bold, boho accents aren’t just for beach days! We’ve been dying to incorporate these stunners into our city wardrobe. On weekdays, when there are meetings and work to consider, we find ourselves gravitating towards neutrals like this flattering chiffon dress. To glam up a classic neutral, opt for antique gold drops and a gem cuff, and pair them with a comfy-cool block heel in a metallic sheen. A carryall satchel holds our essential sunnies and NYC phone case. Comfortable and city-cool, all in one!
