He Said, She Said: Joggers for a Lazy Day

In this post: We’re so excited to share our first “He Said, She Said” fashion post! Here you’ll find how both of us (Shaun & Allyn) are styling joggers for fall and why you need at least a few pairs of them. This post contains shoppable affiliate links which means we may make a small commission if you click on or purchase from them, but we really do love these clothes! He Said… His Look: American Eagle jogger ($50) // American Eagle color block hoodie ($40) // Ugg Colin Sneaker (ON SALE RIGHT NOW – $84) and there’s a navy option, too! Let me start by saying that I absolutely, 100% despise winter.  Autumn… meh.  It can be kinda cool at times, but I can typically never truly enjoy it for reasons I’m about to mention. Every single year I get major winter depression, and it totally cramps my style.  I

Tiny Reminders for My Mental Health

In this post: How a pair of chic tassel earrings kept my mental health in check at New York Fashion Week.  The Look: [sp] Tassel Earrings from Trumpet + Tassel // Velvet dress from ZARA ($20) // similar Nine West shoes ($76) // Styled by + outfit photos: Christina Stein Imberlina // *this post contains affiliate links* There’s a few reasons why I just adore this look. Of course, it fits right in with the jewel tone palette that I love to work with throughout my life. But, these tassel earrings became really special to me as I was wearing them. I wore this outfit on the last day of New York Fashion Week (which ended up being my favorite!). For me, the last day I’m in NYC always symbolizes two things – 1) that I get to come home and knock out my blog posts on all the exciting things I did and wore

From Summer to Fall

In this post: As inspiration for your fall outfits, I’m showing you how I turned the dress I lived in this summer into a fall look. I’ve also included a few things that help me get through this time of year, because fall isn’t exactly my favorite season.  The Look: [sp] Go for Gold Necklace ($27), Good Mood Earrings ($17), and Hit the Ground Running Ring ($27) from 7 Charming Sisters // Similar olive shift dress (ON SALE – $23) // Similar navy cardigan ($98) or budget friendly option here ($23) // similar ankle booties ($70) // Taylor Tassel Crossbody Bucket from 88 Handbags (ON SALE – $40) // Escape Watches Soho Watch ($150) I live in Pittsburgh, PA, and although fall has started on the calendar, we’ve been having 87 degree days and I am SO okay with it. Therefore, I’m going to soak up these uncommonly warm September days and do everything I

2 Things That Helped Me Find Self-Care and Healing at New York Fashion Week

What’s in this post: A fashionable, energy healing statement necklace along with skincare products formulated especially for travel that both helped me take better care of myself this time around at New York Fashion Week.  The Look: [sp] Blue Raw Cut Hemimorphite Necklace from Joree & Jane // Similar Little Black Dress (ON SALE – $93.00) // Missguided Thigh High Boots ($114.00) // [sp] Activa Wood Sunglasses from Public Sunglasses ($79.00) // [c/o] Mimi Cork Vegan Teal/Croc Cross Body from Rok Cork ($178.00) // Styled by: Christina Stein Imberlina Simply put, healing is “the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again”. It’s normally an afterthought. We scrape our knee and then need a bandaid. We misstep when running and then need time for our muscle to heal before going back at it again. We get back from a week of traveling and then need a few days to recover. But is that the way we should be doing it? There are

Finding Hygge in Central Park

What’s in this post: Figuring out what the heck “Hygge” means by getting in touch with both nature and the simpler side of living.  The Look: [sp] Round Neck Maxi Dress from Hygge Living ($32) // [sp] Bull Hoof Necklace from Simply Nature Bio Goods ($209) // Guilty Sunglasses from Public Sunglasses ($79) // Similar boots from Aldo ($180) // Wing Ding Cuff Bracelet from Kutula Kiss ($85) // Coachella Rose Tone Watch from Escape Watches ($195) // Cocktail Ring from 7 Charming Sisters // Styled by + photos: Christina Stein Imberlina // Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessoire cloth handbag – borrowed from Christina because she loves me ($495) I’m normally in New York City at least twice a year, and I have my spots that I go to every time. Every trip I stop at 2 Bros Pizza, where you can get the best New York style slice of pie that’s as big as your head, and also Carlo’s Bakery

Adventures at Animal Kingdom

What’s in this post: adventures at Animal Kingdom including why it’s sometimes necessary to run into the rain (literally and figuratively) and the brightest, most comfortable sneakers ever!  The Look: Low Sinchi Colorful Sneaker from ISKAY Shoes ($60.00) // Natassia Cupro Dress from francesca’s ($38.00) and here’s a similar one ($44.00) in case they don’t have your size // Violet Ray Kendall Backpack ($49.95) // Wing Ding Pew and Zigger Small Beaded Bracelets from the Kutula Kiss Desert Rose Collection (COMING SOON!) Animal Kingdom might just be my favorite Disney park. There’s just something about the atmosphere that brings out the inner adventurer inside all of us. For example, every time I see the Festival of the Lion King show, I question my career path because my heart is definitively sure I’m meant to be the flying blue bird. Maybe one day when I’m famous they’ll invite me to be her for a

3 Ways to Stop Comparing Yourself to Strangers on the Internet

The Look: similar skirt from boohoo ($40.00) // similar dress by Tadashi Shoji from Nordstrom ($268.00) // Carolee Necklace [n/a] – Similar one from BaubleBar ($68.00) // similar Shoes of Prey pumps from Nordstrom ($189.95) // similar Michael Kors crossbody from Macy’s ($148.00) The Lesson: It was a Saturday night in March. I was getting ready for my friend Christina’s birthday party (who, by the way, is hands down the best fashion/personal stylist I’ve ever met AND she took the pretty pictures for this post!). Like a tornado spewing debris across the landscape, my closet was ending up on the floor at an impressive speed. Nothing was fitting right. UGHHH! After an eternity, I determined I’d be wearing the skirt pictured (thanks Claire <3). And so, the storm began again as I tried to figure out what to wear up top. Unsatisfied with everything, I pulled out this black lace dress from the depths of my
