Hello, Upper East Siders! Blair and Serena spotted posting up on the steps at The Met in the most stunning lacey looks you ever saw. Xoxo, Gossip Girl

Now that we have that out of our systems we can tell you all that we are fresh from our trip to New York City, and it was absolutely magical! Kailey has been there several times, but this was my first time to the city! It was just as special and magical as I have always hoped it would be, and I will for sure be bringing my Lily girl here. I’m hoping that it can be our little tradition together.

As like all of us who are obsessed with Gossip Girl, shooting these stunning looks from Morning Lavender at The Met was a no brainer! Morning Lavender was so gracious to gift us these pieces for our trip, and I say this in the most literal way, they were traffic stopping. Kailey is wearing the black lace top and maxi skirt number while I chose a sweet little midi dress linked above. Both of these looks are perfect for a wedding or formal event, and their fits were perfect. The skirt was a little long for our petite frames, but with a higher heel it totally works. Along with our coworkers/besties, our amazing friend Ling Wang joined us on this girl’s trip in which she lent her amazing talents to photograph some of our most favorite moments from this trip. You’ve probably recognized her work on our Instagram and past posts here on the blog. Also, a huge thank you to our Sunkissed & Made Up girls, Jenna and Candice, for these beautiful updos! We are so lucky to work and be friends with such talented artists!

We’ll have several posts in the next few days recapping our first New York Fashion Week so stay tuned!

  

Current Favorites : February Series I

SHOP THE POST

Happy Friday! It’s Super Bowl weekend and our beloved hometown of Houston, Texas has manifested into a celebrity and NFL playground! We love all of the excitement around the city, minus the horrendous traffic! Kailey will be going to the Maxim Magazine Super Bowl party tomorrow night so make sure you’re following us on Snapchat {@handknouis}, and Hailey will be in bed before 10 cuddled up with Lily girl! #momlife

Our first Current Favorites post for February is inspired by Valentine’s Day, a few home accents, and some pieces we will be taking to NYC next weekend! Enjoy! 

Glamour, Givenchy Triptych

I’ve been looking for a pieces to hang in my living room! I love that it comes in three pieces  and it feels so glamorous to me without feeling over the top!

Sole Society Athenia Faux Leather Satchel

We are currently planning what we’re packing for NYFW, and our little eyes have definitely been staring at this little beauty. We definitely don’t want to be carrying around a huge tote in the city, and this is the perfect alternative. Plus the color is so dreamy!

Wayfair Allyson Armchair

I’ve been looking for an accent chair for my bedroom! This has a great prices and I love how simple it is! I’m currently looking for an accent armchair for my apartment, and this little beauty is most definitely/probably/I hope is finding a place in my corner of the world.

Encajes Teddy

Okay, ladies. Even if you have no one to show this little number off to, we are firm believers that you should feel stunning in whatever you’re wearing at all hours of the day…and if you’re Hailey, that means spit up included. LOL. Anyway, this teddy is so flattering and not too showy if you’re new the lingerie world.

Sugarfina Rose All Day Roses Gummy Candy

We are SUCKERS for pretty packaing, and Sugarfina has the most luxurious designs for their cuter than ever candies. These tiny candy boxes are the perfect gifts for girlfriends or ladies in your office. Your girlfriends need loving, too (especially if homegirl is single…make a girl feel special).

Topshop Tutu Tulle Skirt

If you’re like us, we crave any opportunity to feel like Carrie Bradshaw, and this little number will do exactly that! Pair it with a pretty bodice or sweater, and you have the perfect look for a night out with your boo boo.

Reiko Taneko Lip Tease Coffee Mug

We’re a little weird, but we both love a little kiss of lipstick on our Starbucks or coffee mug! That being said, when we saw this precious coffee mug, it’s already done half the work for you! This is a perfect gift to yourself or to a friend…fill it with candy or add a little gift card to their favorite coffee shop.

Love At First Sight Eye Mask

If you’ve seen Breakfast At Tiffany’s then you know that Holly Golightly’s eye mask was definitely the star of the show (don’t take it personal, Audrey…RIP). There’s something so glamorous about an eye mask, and this is the perfect accessory for a night in with your honey bunny or a F*** Valentine’s Day Girl’s Night In with your lady friends…either or you’ll sure to be cute.

Hi, lovelies! Get excited because it’s Friday Eve! Jacob is currently working a turnaround at work and so far he’s worked 7 days and he has 5 more days to go. Even though Lily and I are missing him so much, we secretly are loving our one-on-one Mommy + Lily time. Which brings me to my next topic…life with Lily makes it hard to remember what life was like without her. The days are long, but it’s going by so fast. Jacob and I regularly say that we would be cool if she stayed a baby forever. Some of you may know, but I made the decision due to my unforeseen hard delivery and recovery to stay home with Lily. I definitely will miss my kiddos and staff, but this oppertunity to stay home with my girl will be so cherished. Right now, I’m Sunkissed & Made Up’s little part time assistant, and I’m loving spending my work time with Kay and the girls!

On to our looks…

We have collaborated again with one of our favorite Texas boutiques, Ruthie Grace Boutique. They’re located in Montgomery, and they’re one of our absolute  favorites to work with. If you’re ever in the Houston/The Woodlands area, you definitely need to take a tiny road trip to Montgomery and visit their sweet house turned shoppe. Right now, Kay and I are loving all of the blush and taupe tones! We absolutely love how versatile these pieces are (both tops are from RGB), and you can really wear both of them to several types of occasions. My top also comes in white and navy – perfect blouse to transition into Spring! Kailey’s sweater is in OS, we love how effortless and slouchy it is. You can definitely dress it up or down. Also, Kailey’s lipstick is kinda famous on our Snapchat! It’s Glominerals matte crayon in Sorbet. It’s long lasting, and it’ll make your teeth look super white as it is a blue based color! I’ve also linked Lily girl’s unicorn get up here in pink (her exact one is out of stock)!

And by the way, Happy Ground Hogs Day! Phil told us this morning that we have six more weeks of winter!

I literally blinked on January 1st and it’s now February! Excuse me, what?!! Valentine’s Day is exactly two weeks away and as cheesy as it may be to some, this day is to show a little extra love to the special people in your life! We’re lucky enough that our girlfriends fall into that category and what better way to have a Galentine’s Night than with wine, food, and lots of laughs with your girls! 

Sonoma Wine Bar & Restaurant hosted us and all of these beautiful blogger babes for a night on their rooftop! We were welcomed with rosé and several of their most popular bites! My favorite was the poutine {short rib fries with melted cheese – HOLY YUM) along with zucchini chips with lemon yogurt sauce, friend cheese curds, mushroom pizza, sliders, ahi tuna, and deviled eggs. You best believe we were practically licking the plates clean! So yummy! 

We feel so blessed to have a group of girls to love on and they love us right back! Life wouldn’t be complete without them. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, don’t forget about your girlfriends this Valentine’s Day!

“Maybe our girlfriends are our  soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.” – Carrie Bradshaw

Thank you Sonoma Wine Bar & Restaurant for hosting us and making this post possible!
