Apple Picking x Graphic Tees

BY TARA BURKE 

I know, I know, apple picking season is over and this post is extremely late to the game. For some reason I keep forgetting about these photos until I open my editor and get smacked in the face with them again. Soooo, playing catch up here! Well you guys know that Cailin and I go apple picking every year because we’re from Upstate New York and it’s what we do, haha. If you’ve been following us for awhile you know we usually go downstate. Well this year we kept it local and went to Bowman’s Orchard in Rexford, NY.

Chunky Chenille Sweater

BY TARA BURKE

Nothing says comfortable like a chenille sweater! I have a few in my closet from the actual 90s, but this one I got thrifting. Chenille has made a huge comeback this year and is being sold by practically every brand, but these sweaters have also been sitting in thrift stores everywhere waiting for the style to come back, so I’d definitely recommend stopping by your local spot before shopping at a big name retailer.

Embroidered Bomber Jacket

BY TARA BURKE

Bomber jackets are just the best for an effortlessly cool look. I got this flower embroidered one from Target and what makes it even better is that it’s sweater material! It is literally the comfiest thing and is so soft.

Autumn Florals

BY TARA BURKE

Don’t put away your floral clothes yet! You can style them in so many ways to make them work for fall like wearing a fun pair of tights, pairing them with boots or adding a chunky sweater and hat. I also like wearing florals that are in muted colors during the cooler months and that was exactly what I did for this look.

Feelin’ Like Fall

BY TARA BURKE

Fall fashion is here y’all and we’re loving it as usual. It’s time to bring out the beanies and boots, but there are always a few hot days that sneak into October, and this particular day was one of them. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this orange vintage skirt that I borrowed from Cailin’s closet.

Flouncy Skirts & Wrap Tops

BY TARA BURKE

Who doesn’t love a skirt that you can twirl around in?! This skirt is so fun and representative of its designer, Betsey Johnson. Betsey Johnson was one of my favorite designers when I was younger because everything she makes is so crazy fun and unique, and I was in my wear anything but the ordinary stage – haha! I still love how bold her pieces are, so when I found this gem while thrifting I definitely scored. To finish the look I paired it with a simple black wrap top and some strappy heels.

Catskills Camp Style

BY CAILIN BURKE

We always love dressing for the occasion, so when we had a weekend trip planned to The Catskills we each put together a look for the mountain vibes! I personally love western inspired style, but wanted to be comfortable at the same time, so I threw on this waaay oversized shirt and tied it into a knot at the corner to get somewhat of a more fitted look! I paired it with one of those button down denim skirts, but I love how it’s lined with brown suede to make it a little different than the norm. And of course — My favorite gladiators to top it off! Plus, I had to throw on my go-to flat brim hat when we went exploring the nearby town!

Summer Trend: Tank over Tee

BY TARA BURKE 

I’ve been loving all these 90s trends, especially since I saved a lot of my favorite 90s pieces from my childhood and I have my Mother’s closet to raid! This lilac silk tank top was a piece from my Mom’s wardrobe and it paired perfectly with a simple white tee underneath. This tank also has the most amazing straps in the back which gives it a fun and unique touch.

Fourth of July Style

BY CAILIN BURKE

Happy Fourth of July all! We love everything that comes with this holiday — celebrating America and our independence, eating some classic foods, and wearing our red, white, and blue! We both put together outfits that were a little different than the norm and love how they came out. First off, I am obsessed with Tara’s look because… just look at that t-shirt! She thought it would be super fitting to wear a cheeseburger covered tee since it’s a staple July 4th food after all! Even better, these cheeseburgers have faces and are just too adorable and funny! This is definitely a statement tee.

Along with this epic tee (from Delia*s back in the day), she topped it with a denim slip dress and really cool Swedish clogs from MIA Shoes. (I got them for her as a birthday present this year! Success!!) She also threw on a few matching Pura Vida bracelets and wore a red lip to give it that red, white, and blue look!
