ootd – heather sweater

This sweater has quickly become one of my favorites of ours. First, the obvious, it is SO soft. Every time I wear it, my kiddos instantly want to snuggle more. I’ll take it! Then, the fit is perfect. It is loose enough to hide anything you might want to, but fitted enough to still show a cute shape. Not to mention, the cute details like the sleeves and the slit in the back. I wear it with jeans, leather pants, over dresses, and with skirts. Also, it’s only $60!

holiday shoes under $100 & splurge

Hi, our names are Aj & Ashley and we have a problem:


We love shoes.

I’ve rounded up some of our holiday time favorites- in two batches.

The first, a round up of shoes that Ash and I own. Between us both we own most all of these shoes, some in multiples- and there’s a reason. They are our favorites. Yes, they are expensive- but, I will say I used to be the gal that had 7 pairs of “black pumps”, none of which I really liked, they didn’t last, and they were all incredibly uncomfortable. Now, if I had instead invested in one pair of quality black pumps- I would have spent the same amount, they last longer, they are more comfortable, and let’s be honest- I just like them better! So, that is my strategy now. I sometimes will buy a fun, inexpensive pair – but most of my shoes I invest in and replace multiple pairs of shoes in my closet that I then won’t wear.  Screen Shot 2016-12-07 at 2.13.32 PM.png

The second batch – everything is UNDER $100 and some UNDER $50! Several of them are lookalikes for the expensive ones! Screen Shot 2016-12-07 at 2.18.47 PM.png

Which ones are you going to grab!?





Ash’s obsessions


Stuart Weitzman ‘Halftime’.  Stylish and comfy and ON SALE!  I’m partial to the ‘slate suede’ color available here and also on sale for 40% off!!

Merona Women’s Blanket Scarf.  I have been getting a TON of wear out of my blanket scarves this fall.  One of my faves is this simple black and white one I picked up at Target a few months back.

Sweater Leggings.  Simply the best leggings for fall/winter.  Not only are they warm and cozy, but they have a tummy control waist that comes up higher than most leggings.  Love, love, love the high wast!

H&M Sequin Top. You’ve probably gathered by now, I love sequins. This top is no exception. Dress it up, dress it down- either way, you and I both need it!

Steve Madden Strappy Heel. These are a perfect holiday shoe- velvet, gold, and under $100! Nordstrom is currently price matching, so these are on sale for $69. Go snag them now before they sell out! They would be perfect for all of the holiday gatherings this season.

Target Holiday Sweater. Let’s be honest- is there anything Target can’t do!? Amazing holiday sweater for $29. I saw Ash wear this one when I was in San Fran with her last weekend, and then our mom wore the reindeer one- which Ash then went and bought- now I think I’m needing one!


Ash’s obsessions


Smith’s Rosebud Salve  I have been using this stuff for years!  It’s great for chapped lips, as a lip gloss, dab on cheeks and eyes for a dewy glow, moisturize your cuticles, and on and on.  It has a pretty yet mild scent and cute little packaging.  All for around $6!

June & Hudson Floral Print Wrap Dress Summer is coming to a close, but I’m still in love with florals.  And this cream and black wrap dress (for $68?!?!!) can easily transition to fall with some black tights and a cardigan.

The Nudist Sandal by Stuart Weitzman.  I want these so bad!  I own the slightly shorter heeled Nudistsong in black suede, but I’m thinking I may need some nude ones too.  Simple, classic, and super sexxxy.

Aj’s obsessions


Acure Organics Moroccan Argan Oil and Argan Stem Cell Natural Shampoo and Conditioner  I have finally found a shampoo and conditioner that is color safe, paraben free, gluten free, sulfate free, sodium chloride free, phthalate free, and cruelty free without drying out my hair!

Ray Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses  These are so fun! They are a great pair of mirrored sunglasses, but with such a fun yet classic style.

Hard Tail ‘Radius’ Cross Back Tank I feel like I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t post something from the Nordstrom summer clearance sale event! There are so many good items- but the workout gear specifically is what my eyes are on.

spring suede shoe obsessions

suede shoes

Soft suede just oozes elegance and femininity- unless its heavily fringed or studded and then it may take on more of a hippy or native american vibe.  Suede was a prominent trend in the 2015 spring/summer shows, and I would love to see it keep going and going… particularly with shoes!

My current spring suede shoe obsessions (left to right, top to bottom)-

Steve Madden “Kitty” Ghillie Sandal – $89 at Nordstrom.  I actually just bought these this past weekend.  The laces are on trend, and the low block heel give a little lift while staying casual and comfy.  I’m heading to Napa for a girlie weekend this Friday and these are definitely coming with!

Klub Nico “Tarina” Gladiator Sandal – $199 at Nordstrom.  With a little bit more of a heel, petite studs, and laser cutouts, this is maybe the girliest ‘gladiator’ sandal ever.  It’s a great neutral color and pairs just as great with dresses as it does with jeans.  These heels are also sold at Anthropologie for $240 (see Jordana Heels).

Manolo Blahnik BB 105 Suede Point-Toe Pumps in Cobalt – $595 at Saks.  I heart these shoes so much.  I’ve lusted after them for more than a year now.  I’ve even talked friends into buying them.  What’s so great about them?  The color.  Go see them in person.  The color is simply amazing.  I think I may need to add these blue suede shoes to my closet this season 😉

Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong – $398 at Stuart Weitzman.  A simple, clean, classic, and sexxxy sandal.  The cut on these is just perfect.  The heel is a bold straight line to elongate your leg, and the toe strap is slightly angled to display those perfectly pedicured toes.  The Nudistsong is the wearable version of the super hot Nudist sandal.  If you want a super sexy sandal for sitting, get the Nudist.  If you want to be able to walk and dance and strut around, go for the Nudistsong.

Happy shopping!
