While stocking up on some staples for my European excursion, I hit up H&M for some good staples. I found a few crucial pieces to bring on my trip that will be good for the warmer days cruising the city streets or biking the country roads.
(H&M gold plated blouse)
(H&M black shorts)
(Betsy Johnson clutch of Chelsea’s)
(I love the colorful bubbles!)
(H&M studded slip ons)I’m more than ready to go! Everything is so affordable that you won’t feel bad if they get ruined while exploring city streets. The memories are more important than the clothes but it doesn’t hurt if you feel good, too
Coachella was amazing this year and I even scored some awesome stuff like this BCBG top that I love! I’m normally not the type to rock a crop top but BCBG made this one to fit all body types. Not to mention, I love it in this mint green color. They also gave me this amazing bracelet which you will see closer up further in the post. I had the best time “glamping” (glamour+camping in our RV ) with my friends at Vestal Village. It’s one of the most amazing places in the world to be.
(Forever21 double breasted shorts)
(BCBG custom bracelet! My favorite)
You don’t always have to be at a music festival to rock your music festival fashion come-ups! Some of my new favorite pieces were from BCBG this year. I’ll be going to a music festival in the Netherlands in a few weeks and I can’t wait to see the fashion over there. I’ll keep the blog updated with what I find

With the massive music lovers festival right around the corner (literally), I’ve began to pack. Packing is so much fun for Coachella because despite my experience with the extremely cold weather last year (we deemed it Snowchella), it’s typically the first taste of real summer. Our whole group of friends rallies together to camp out away from the festival on an amazing piece of property where there are horses, a pool, and endless good times. During my packing process, I’ve come across many items that are totally justifiable to buy and bring and also many that are a more of a want (the things you want to buy but can’t justify when you know Coachella may be the only place you get to rock the piece).
(WANT: BP sunglasses are my jam! They are always under $15 and adorable. Not to mention you don’t feel bad if they get lost or broken)
(WISH: These amazing scalloped swimsuits designed by Stone Cold Fox are definitely on my wish list)
(WANT: These cheetah print vans are wild and cute)
(WISH: Beautiful maxi skirts/dresses to wear to stay cool and enjoy the festival. This one is by Spell Designs)
Anyone else going to Coachella this year?! What musicians are you looking forward to seeing?

You can’t not watch Almost Famous and think about how you’d love to channel Penny Lane. She plays such a bold, free, and sensitive character while at the same time keeping up with the fashion Joneses. You really only need a few simple things to bring a Penny Lane outfit to life. Grab some wide leg denim, a sparkly tank, some good shades, and a fur jacket or sweater. This sweater I found in a sale bin at the Limited for $1.99… I can’t even believe what a steal it was!
(These Forever21 mod heels are great for this)
Fur, sequins, and some flared denim are all you really need to channel Penny Lane for the every day look. Happy Friday everyone!
I can’t deny that ever since I met Chelsea, the most interesting events have happened to us. One day I got a call from a friend asking if we would be interested in being in a music video being filmed in the bay area. Of course we said yes! We LOVE music and producing and/or being a part of creative content (hence the blog). We didn’t know many details about it including who or what the video was even for but sent our info to the right place and BOOM! We started receiving emails about the “secret” locations and what our wardrobe was supposed to look like. The most fun we had though was trying to nail down the outfits. This was in our email about what to try to dress as:
They also sent this photo to try to show us what the wardrobe guidelines were supposed to turn out like:
We were a little confused but excited by the challenge! So we dressed up and headed to set. Although, getting to set was also extremely fun. We were given a secret location and a map and told to show up around midnight.
This place was awesome. The views of San Francisco were beautiful and it was like driving through a forest. Once we got to the location was the best part. My friend who works on music video concepts for a label took us around and introduced us to all the people that make these things happen. We ended up at wardrobe where they had racks and racks of clothing for the shoot. It was heaven. Then we got in line with the other people there for wardrobe. It seems we were the only ones who took the wardrobe guidelines to heart and tried to dress up. They were dressing everyone else and changing their outfits. Finally, we got to the stylist where they looked us up and down and claimed – great! We had nailed the look. And here were our outfits, or at least mine. Chelsea’s will be up tomorrow so make sure to check back!
(Forever 21 dress, Litter leg garter, Steve Madden combat boots, and glam Kat Von D lipstick)
(For the actual shoot we disheveled our hair and put twigs in it, they really liked that touch)
This was actually us AFTER we got home from the shoot. So much fun to be around all of the hustle and bustle. We found out once we started getting emails that the shoot was for One Republic’s new song and you know, the song hadn’t been released yet so we had no idea what it was. It’s one of both of our favorites now. We had both had a crazy last year and now are so much better for it which I feel is the point of the song. Check back tomorrow for Chelsea’s wardrobe ace and a link to the video!

Although I tend to love wearing black because it’s more flattering, I do tend to also love bright colors and especially floral prints. Since the weather has been so nice lately here in San Francisco, it’s easy to embrace Spring before it arrives. Who says you can’t wear a skirt in the winter?
(Loving the Nordstrom Brass Plum necklaces they have right now)
(Love my dark purple pumps, they were actually hand-me-downs from my frover Chels )
(Uneven cardigan length is like a mullet – business in front, party in the back)
(I even stepped on the wild side and added some cheetah print in with the floral print)
Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend
It’s hard to have a cute up-do that’s fun and sophisticated. One day I had my hair in a pony tail and wanted to add something to it. Not have just a typical bun or pony tail. So I braided and twirled and ended up with this easy to do bun!
1. Start with a regular pony tail
2. Separate strands to start braid
3. Braid hair until 1 or 2 inches from the ends of your hair
4. Twirl braid around the base of your pony tail
5. Tuck the ends of the braid under one of the elastic loops holding your pony tail
6. Pin any crazy, out of control pieces down unless you like how they look
7. Voila! Scope it, so easy.

Who am I kidding, I had one of those in the past and this is definitely an upgrade. So let me tell you about the best Valentine there is… Forever21. She never fails to bring joy, make you feel beautiful, and send you home with presents! This Valentine’s Day I’ve decided to slink into this comfy get up and eat all the candy hearts from this post while watching whatever Ryan Gosling movie I desire. I truly believe in constantly showing someone your love no matter what the day is to friends, family, and/or lover. Although Valentine’s Day gives you a chance to make everything into a heart shape or eat extra sweet treats. Don’t judge me
(These Forever 21 high waisted side zip red shorts are my favorites)
(The heart studded belt and cheetah manicure top off the outfit with flirty sass)
(Kat Von D red lipstick, BP purple wayfare shades)
(Forever 21 heart studded belt)
(Tuck the sweater in or let it hang loosely. Either way, you will be the sweetest Valentine out there)
All jokes aside, we love you. All of you who have continued to read and ponder about us IFL creators. We wanted to make you all a handmade valentine to show you how much we care but put us with Elmer’s glue, sparkles and construction paper and we ended up looking like life-size paper mache pinatas with no salvageable Valentine’s to give. Just know, you’re the best Valentine to us out there <3

Inspiration for us can come from all different areas of life. We saw an ad in a magazine that just blew us away with it’s creativity and colorful/playfulness. Grabbing some fun make up colors and heading outdoors, we are very happy to showcase some of our favorite fashion photos.

These eye shadows are beautiful and great colors for the end of Winter and Spring time. Enjoy!
Who doesn’t love these conversation hearts?! Well we do and here’s a way to have some sweet treat offerings without looking too soft. We got these glittery skulls in a post Halloween splurge (don’t ask why, we have no method to our madness) and I was thinking, when else am I going to display this sassy table decor? Light bulb! Valentine’s Day. I think it’s the perfect combo of the devil and angel that usually sit on your shoulders tempting you, to eat the candy or not to eat the candy – that is the question.
I mean let’s be honest, these won’t make it to Valentine’s Day. We still have two weeks until then so make sure you grab a couple bags of the candy for back stock and make it the good kind (I prefer Brachs, the old school candies that some compare to tasting like chalk. The best chalk I’ve ever had).
I think we should be responsible for making the type on these candies and if we could, we would make one that says “We F$#&ing Heart You.” What would yours say?
