Small Screen Style & Giveaway: Olivia Pope

 Rebecca || Stephanie || Rachel || Maddy

So in case you haven't been following along this week, we're teaming up with a few of our favorite bloggers and brands to recreate the style of some of TV's most iconic fashionistas (and don't forget to enter the amazing $600 jewelry Giveaway with Boy Meets Girl and Roman & Luxe!) We started with Mindy Lahiri and Rachel Green, and today we're bringing it back to the lady whose style inspired the whole collaboration: Olivia Pope.

Olivia owns Washington, and her wardrobe reflects it. She keeps it classy with a very neutral palette, and reminds everyone who's in charge with clean lined jackets and feminine details. We're in awe of her perfect winter coats and ladylike gloves, but alas, this is August. So we kept it lighter with a textured jacket and long, draped pearls.

The Things That Matter

This post is going to be a little different. Typically we like to reserve this blog as a space for positivity, creativity, and expression because those things are very important to us. We love pretty clothes and yummy food, and art and literature and entertainment. But today we feel inclined to talk about a few things that are more important. We hope that you'll read along, share in our reflection, and let us know your thoughts - because we're all still learning.

Date Night Romper

This week Skyla and Tony celebrated their 2 year anniversary! Wasn't her outfit for the big date night adorable? She picked up this cheerful Doe & Rae romper from TJMaxx for for only $16.99 and paired it with a playful leopard print clutch and strappy sandals for a fun, relaxing night with her boo (or, as they like to call it, her Googie. Yes, it rhymes with loogie, which is coincidentally how it makes me feel! JK... but really.)

What did they do for their night on the town? Simple and classic: dinner at their favorite restaurant, and Guardians of the Galaxy at our local vintage movie theater. Congrats, friends!

10 Best Thrifting Tips And Tricks

I have a confession: I'm a terrible thrifter. As much as I love the idea of picking up a few new favorites for next to nothing, it's never been my forte. I have a few excuses: a hard-to-fit body type and a huge sensitivity to my environment, but in the end it all boils down to this: I'm missing out.

Skyla, on the other hand, is a magical thrifting wizard. And she's sharing some of her best tips and tricks with us today! Let me tell you, she knows what she's doing. We went to a few thrift stores this weekend and she helped me find a few new favorites, including the perfect pleated midi and adorable clutch we shared in yesterday's outfit post.

So here you have it: your guide to thrifting your way to a new wardrobe!

Late Summer/Fall Style

This is always a sad time of the year. As much as I love the crisp fall breeze and colorful trees (not to mention the beautiful snow that's soon to follow!) I'm just never quite ready to let the summer go. I'm trying to shut out all the back-to-school nonsense and really make the most out of the remaining weeks of summer heat we have left. That means beach time, sandals, road trips, and sunshine! 

But who says we can't mix in a little fall fashion along the way? This skirt was a recent thrift find (more on that adventure to come!) and I originally planned on saving it for the cooler months. But Ben wanted to head to the Akron Hamburger festival (apparently they were invented here? I'm not buying it... but I'll definitely eat it!) and the skirt was just begging to blow around in the warm summer breeze! So I threw on this neat architectural halter and my everyday (literally) sandals to keep things cool, and off we went!
