backstage pass

hermès bracelet (similar style here), enzo angiolini sandals (similar style here), ray ban sunglasses (available here)

on sally: charter club leopard print shirt (similar style here), j crew shorts (similar style here),

Here's a little sneak peek at what goes on behind the scenes in our house!

These pictures were taken during a mid-getting-dressed Mommy's room meet-up. These happen often.
We were stealing things to accessorize with, naturally, and snapped some shots in the meantime.

Then Jilly stole a necklace and changed her shoes, and Sally stole a bracelet and changed her shoes.
And we gleefully skipped away, happy little thieves!

here it comes

michael michael kors shirts (khaki & blue - dress in the same print here - would be super cute with black tights for fall!),
calvin klein animal print dress, lauren by ralph lauren shirt * (similar style here)

We have the greatest Uncle. Ever. And we mean it - he really is the best! We could talk for hours about all of the awesome things he's done, but instead we'll show you what he bought Jilly on a "just because" shopping trip
(an Uncle with a heart of gold and amazing taste in clothes?! We told you he's the best!).

Now if it weren't for that hurricane slowly creeping up the east coast, Jilly would've been able to wear this stuff today. Instead we're both cooped up inside, comfy clothes on and rain boots at the ready, just incase!

Here's hoping we don't get washed away!

*Lovey was involved in the "picking-out" of this shirt. So lucky to be surrounded by stylish men ;)

forever 21 shirt (similar style here), hanes shirt (similar style here), green envelope skirt (similar style here), gucci necklace, j crew bracelet (similar style here), rings and earrings from grandma, sam edelman booties (available here), chanel bag (similar style here)

This skirt is the latest addition to my closet! You like?

This Chanel bag is probably one of my most favorite bags - it's small, structured, and is perfect to carry around the basics! On my sixteenth birthday my Grandma told me to go into one of her closets (it's a walk-in closet designated for bags and shoes...seriously it's like Hirshleifer's in there!) and pick something that I liked! I chose this one, and it's honestly one of my favorite bags ever!

....andddd how are you all liking my new hair!? It's not the exact blonde I wanted, but I am loving it!

give me an A!

polo button down, polo shorts (similar style here), hermès belt,
vintage escada bag, h&m wedges (similar style here),
hermès scarf (worn as bracelet), textbook (for dramatic effect)

So my first days back went well! But 6:30AM wake ups are a drag.
The antidote? A brighter-than-bright yellow top and colorful Hermès arm candy.

This textbook is one of five I'll be lugging around this semester. Yes, five.
How will I cope? The gym in very large doses - build up those biceps, baby!

Happy Monday!

the want list

ysl rogue pur couture pure color lipstick in 13 le orange,
j crew cotton blend racer back tank (available here),
topshop moto oat baxter jean, topshop three quarter sleeve blazer,
tory burch amanda snake-effect leather shoulder bag (available here),
persol acetate framed sunglasses (available here),
exie sam edelman shoe (available here),
mudd gold tone bead feather drop earring

Sometimes I find myself picking outfits based on how it will match my makeup - and that is exactly what I did with this want list. For quite a while, I have been searching for the perfect orangey-red lip color, one that is more orange than it is red, and I believe that I have found it. I must head over to the closest Sephora to see if I have, in fact, found the perfect shade.

As the rest of the outfit goes, I have needed a look that can easily transform to day to night. For the day, I could wear just the tank & jeans paired with the exie's, and for the night I could throw on this perfect three quarter sleeve blazer from Topshop and I'll be all ready!

ready set go

tree tank (similar style here), ralph lauren pant,
steve madden wedges (available here), chanel bag,
another line leopard belt (similar style here),
hermès bracelet (similar style here)

I start classes tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow. "Fall" semester begins in the middle of August. Makes sense, right?

Not at all.

And you know what else didn't make sense to me? How I almost let an entire summer go by without wearing white pants! So as one last summer "hurrah," I stepped out in this getup for lunch with lovey and the family yesterday. Now I'm off to cram as much summer as I can into these last few hours before my 8AM class.

Hope you all enjoy the day!

fever leopard maxi dress, chanel earrings, h&m fringe bag (similar style here),
gold wrap bracelet (stolen from mommy's closet), h&m ring (similar style here),
hermès bracelet (similar style here), vintage sandals (stolen from mommy's closet - similar style here)

Remember when Sally told you about our Mommy's shopping trip? Well she also came home with this gorgeous leopard maxi dress for herself! But, ever the loving Momma she is, she immediately put the dress up for grabs for Sally and I "whenever we want to borrow it." She really is the best! So I was the first to venture into her closet and take her up on the offer.

While I was in there I snagged some accessories. There's something about the combination of leopard, gold, and red that is just so perfect. It's like they were meant to be together. One big, happy, aesthetically pleasing family.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

the want list: hair edition

This is the first "Want List" that revolves around hair! Lately I have been dying (no pun intended) to dye my hair lighter shade...or as you can tell by some of the photos, a much lighter shade! Here are some of the possibilities...if you had to decide between Mary Kate, Kate Bosworth, Whitney port, Gisele, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Aniston, or Jessica Alba's light tresses,
which one would you choose!?

levain lovin'

J'adore cookies. Although nothing can beat Mommy's homemade cookies, Levain Bakery's are definitely a close second. They're a full 6oz (yes, 6oz..) worth of buttery, sugary, chocolately, peanut buttery goodness. The only problem is, their bakeries are just too far for daily indulgence.

That's why I set out to find the recipe online - and lucky for me, the blog world delivered!
I found a recipe that tastes so super similar to the real thing that our brother couldn't even tell the difference!
Granted, my version may be a bit smaller,
but it was certainly a worthy substitute until we meet again!

wild thing

charter club leopard print shirt (similar style here), j crew shorts (similar style here),
neiman marcus fringe bag (similar style here), kenneth cole eyeglasses,
steve madden wedges (stolen from jilly - available here), gold bracelet (similar style here),
house of harlow earrings (available here)

The other day, my Mommy came home with goodies for me after an impromptu shopping trip!
Along with this leopard shirt, she also got me gorgeous Michael Kors brown suede shorts
(you will most definitely be seeing them in future posts, so stay tuned!).

This is the first time I wore my new shirt (Jilly has the same one, but Mommy bought me one, too - no fighting!), and it is definitely a new favorite of mine because it is so lightweight and flowy. Paired with my white J. Crew shorts and these gorgeous wedges (that I stole from Jilly...) this outfit could easily be worn from day to night!

yabba dabba do

zara blouse (similar style here), zara shorts (similar style here),
vintage escada bag (stolen from mommy's closet), prada wedges (similar style here),
necklace (stolen from mommy's closet), hermès bracelet, string bracelets (DIY),
kate spade earrings (available here), ray ban sunglasses (available here)

Sally and I were all set for a shopping trip yesterday, but the weather had other plans!
Despite lovey's storm warnings, we set out anyway, only to get caught in the rain and have to head back home..
( You were right this time, lovey. You were right. :P )

Because of the hot and sticky air, my hair was waaaay too gross to expose to the world, hence the bun.

Ask Sally or pretty much anyone who knows me - this is the most tamed bun you will ever see on my head.

My buns have been known to take on so many different shapes and sizes, you have no idea!

So I rocked a Wilma Flintstone 'do (and necklace) for the day and we spent the afternoon watching old
RHONJ episodes. Doesn't beat a stroll down Madison Ave, but hey, those girls are muy entertaining.
