Made(really)well

26 Oct

On Wednesday, the JCrew brand Madewell* opened a store in the Cherry Creek Mall, making it the Mile High City’s first official shop. We took a field trip as soon as possible and today we’re both wearing new Madewell items that are quickly becoming our fall favorites.

Laura picked up the Striped Diary Dress and added brown boots, black tights, and a blue suede belt to accentuate the waist. Jill got the Easygoing Tee in Dot, initially intended for this skirt that has turned out to be tricky to match, but equally appropriate for a casual Friday.

What’s your favorite Madewell fall item?

*According to JCrew’s About page, they introduced Madewell in 2006 as “modern-day interpretation of an American denim label founded in 1937.”

Day to Night – Dressed in Green

11 Oct

We have another day to night post for you to ponder today. This time, we’ve taken a great work dress (in this case, a deep green dress from Tory Burch) and switched out the pantyhose, shoes and belt. For day, we have classic pantyhose, mary jane shoes and simple jewelry. For night, we have sexy nude lace pantyhose, edgy boots and we’ve switched out the tie at the waist for a great gold belt. Remember, accessories are your friend when you’re going from day to night.

From the office to the town

Happy Friday! I hope you all put this post to good use and transition from your day in the office to a fabulous evening on the town. I know that’s what I’ll be doing 😉

Boot Season Secret

26 Sep

Fall: the season of sweaters, layers and boots – oh how we love boots. But, behind every good pair of boots there’s an equally important pair of socks. For us, it’s always a pair of Sox Trot socks.

Introduced to us by Laura’s mama and her hiking pals, these socks are fashioned after equestrian riding boot socks – they are thin, comfortable and colorful (hand dyed and made in New York) and they never, ever bunch up. Once you try Soxtrot, you’ll never want to wear anything else under your boots – it’s true!
