His & Hers .BK

6th August 2014

Pop quiz, what is of the most plain and basic piece in your closet? What’s the most versatile? Every considered combining these two must haves into one? Am I totally blowing your mind right now?

Although I have been known to splurge on the occasional floral skirt, I also talk a lot about investment pieces, and about working with the basics. (Remember these posts? Don’t worry a new one is coming for Fall, which is right around the corner by the way… Bananas!). Anyways, some quality basics are crucial to building a killer wardrobe – for both men and women. Today Paris & I teamed up for our second His & Hers post in our twinning tops, although technically this is a his, his & hers post since Waffles, the other man in my life, is crashing. 

 What’s mine is yo– whoa there, just kidding we’re not at that stage yet! But Paris and I do occasionally share clothes (It pays to have a slender boyfriend, even if it does make you feel a bit self conscious that he can wear your clothes, but not self conscious enough to put down the Mint Chocolate Chip. Awesome, now I’m hungry). The sharing usually benefits me, I steal his sweaters in the winter or wrap his cardigans around my waist in the Spring, and sometimes completely borrow from the boys with total menswear inspired looks, but sometimes P gets something from it too. Today we’re wearing the same .BK shirt (mines a size small, his a medium, but he can wear mine too) but in two different ways. While Paris took a pattern play by pairing with Camo Pants (according to him “Camo pants go with everything I wanna wear”), I kept things classic by pairing with other closet basics: denim and nude pumps!
 His: .BK shirt || Old Navy Camo Pants || Timberland Boots

(insert corny one liner here — Paris, lives for these and thinks he’s so dang witty… and he kind of is… kind of)

His & Hers – Bucketfeet

26th June 2014

So today’s post is kind of fun and cheesy all at the same time because my boyfriend/photographer/best friend, Paris is crashing this post! Plus I’m introducing a new section of my blog (I’m not sure if Paris knows this is going to be a thing now… Surprise!): His & Hers. 

Paris and I have been together for an embarrassingly long time – let’s just say since high school. And before we were going “steady” we were besties so we have always been big parts of each others lives. Since we spend so much time together, our style has always somewhat complimented each other — which is not always a good thing (we both have made our fair share of fashion no-nos), but funny to think back on none the less. Honestly, I think my fashion don’ts are way more embarrassing than any of his, but there are a few high school dance couple costumes that should never see the light of day again — oh high school…
Despite our previous and perhaps questionable choices, today we made the right one with BucketFeet – a cool, art inspired shoe brand that we can’t stop wearing. Not only are their shoes so dang comfortable (they have these awesome massaging polka dots in them that I’m obsessed with) but they are also crazy cute. I love the paint splatter pattern of my shoes and the simple yet statement print on Paris’s that look great with almost everything.

MY OOTD:
Top: H&M Graphic Crop Top, it says “that’s awesome”
Overalls: Tinseltown Overalls via Macys (see me in a Urban one’s here)
Paris is wearing: Bucketfeet Shplinton Canvas Shoes, Tommy Hilfiger Shirt – a gift from the most amazing girlfriend ever … oh wait, that’s me :], and Gap Jeans
