uniform. cake.

we're finally getting around to posting cake's uniform looks from a week and half ago :/ 

the first thing that is a huge difference between cake & valley's looks is that cake is a stay at home mom. so some days she gets dressed and does her make up & other days are full on stay-in-your-work-out-clothes-avoid-a-shower-and-run-errands type of day :) 

cake definitely goes for the simple silhouette of skinny bottoms & blouse-y/tunic/layered tops.  she picks tops that feature a fun detail to give herself a little more spunk! hopefully you find it a bit wacky & not a bit wonky!

happy wacky Wednesday.


cake & valley.

a fun fringe turtleneck sweater with distressed skinnys and the most fabulous booties are an easy go to look for running to the coffee shop & get ice cream with the kiddos. aka what we do everytime both kids are home with just mom! ha! sweater: joie, tank: j.crew, jeans: AG, shoes: choies

and here's what we're talking about the perfect colorfully post work out & skip the shower look. at least it's not boring, right?!?!?!? sweater: wildfox, tank: asos maternity {perfect for nursing, i'm not preggo}, leggings: tj Maxx, shoes: nike, hat: dartmouth bookstore.

this look is from when both kids were home & cake was able to sneak a shower in but not much else . . . aka frizzy wet hair & no make-up. thankfully the slouchy black hat helps hid the frizzy, and comfy pj looking clothes help make for a cozy functioning look let cake leave the house feeling pulled together. hat: 360 cashmere, top: target, pants: betsy johnson, shoes: nike.

a classic black turtleneck saves the day! it's easy to layer those tissue thin turtlenecks under a fun printed tank. especially when you live in NH and it feels like spring is never going to arrive & you're so bored with your winter clothes! ha! turtleneck: j.crew, tank: chaser, jeans: levi, boots: frye.

as soon as cake saw this top she had to have it. being a boy mom is the best and she had to let everyone know. she bought it when she was pregnant in a size L so it's a nice slouchy fit and so comfy. it's also from F21 so it's no thang when the kids get their sticky hands all over her! sweater: F21, top: splendid, pants: F21, shoes: target, hat: j.crew.

yup more skinny jeans with a textured top, long layered vest, & fun shoes! cake couldn't tell you how many times she gets stopped about her shoes! most people say, "Oh my gosh, how fun!" and she gets the occasional, "wow, those are different!" which is generally a good thing . . . . right?!?!? top: target, jeans: 7 for all mankind, vest: anthropologie, shoes: target.

alright last look. cake styled this in town ways because after wearing the look on the left she felt a bit cheesy. she took out the high pony tail & lost the chocker. not that the first look isn't good she just didn't feel like herself. maybe one too many things going on. which look do you prefer? top: target, tank: j.crew, jeans: AG, sweater: free people via ASOS, shoes: choie, chocker: adorn monde.


uniform. valley.

ummmmmm . . . .  how is it already the middle to end of april & this is our first post of the month?!?!?! like what?!?! good thing this post is chalked full of six delicious looks :)

we love us a routine, or a uniform. it makes mornings so much easier. but a uniform doesn't have to mean boring. especially if you fill your closet full of clothes that fit your body & fit into your lifestyle. so this post is a peek into valley's "in real life" looks. valley works two jobs, just moved into a new house, recently got married {pic of her wedding coming soon, because it was beyond}, has three dogs, and tries to see family & friends as much as possible because, well, she's the best {says her twin sister cake!}

as you can see below valley loves classic pieces with a twist. below each look we've added a brief caption & tried to link to as many pieces as possible. however, if we've missed something give us a holler & we'll try to hook a girlfriend up with a link!

hope you enjoy.


cake & valley

yup classic pieces are valley's jam. here's a typical look into what work wear looks like for her. cable knit sweater, leather pleated skirt, black suede booties & a high pony to top it off. love all the textures. sweater; anthropologie {similar here}, skirt: banana republic {vegan leather alternative here}, shoes: old navy, tights: target.

another day in the office another classic combo with a classic valley twist- a layered turtleneck! if you know anything about valley she LOOOOVES a black turtleneck. actually any turtleneck! black turtleneck: michael stars {long sleeve version here}, white linen top: urban outfitters {similar here}; joggers: j.crew, flats: target.

valley's second job is working part-time at j.crew. don't even get us started on the amazing sales you can score when you work there. both of our closets are full of items from there. good quality, fun colors, and classic fitting clothes are too good to pass up. jean jacket: old navy, sweater: j.crew {similar here}, chinos: j.crew, shoes: j.crew.

valley said she looked "frumpy" in this look so she refursed to take a standing selfie. but we love the classic pairing of navy with a dark green chino. the bow detail on the neckline is a perfect feminine flair this look was craving. sweater: banana republic, pants: j.crew, shoes: old navy.

so we've said it in almost every caption but another classic look . . . . that's why it's a uniform people! skinny black going out pants, black blazer, both paired with a fun t-shirt, statement earrings, slicked back hair & red lips. easy peasy lemon squeezy! pants: j.crew, blazer: target, shirt: F21, earrings: j.crew, shoes: old navy. {and how cute it otis sleeping in the background!!!}

this next look is a little bit more playful but pulls from the classic undertones of nautical stripes, a closet staple of brown boots, and finally the fun off the shoulder trendy. dress: j.crew, boots: steve madden {black version here}. {ps. doggies name is ava}

and this last look is for a sunday full of running errands. slouchy sweater, slouchy white tanke, skinny jeans, & the forever comfy classic ugg boots. also a close up on the halo braid- because what are dirty hair days for, if not halo braids!!! sweater: urban outfitters, tank: eileen fisher, jeans: target, boots: ugg.
