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!

Sporty Vibes

BY TARA BURKE

We’re all about the laid back sporty look for running around doing errands. We also just like to get away with essentially wearing baggy tees and sweatpants in public. My look consists of an extra baggy athletic tee, a vintage jean jacket, leggings, wedge sneaks and a white baseball cap. I got the tee out thrifting and the jacket is from my lovely sis’s closet. If you’re looking to be a little more intentional with your shopping habits we’d definitely recommend thrift, consignment and vintage shops. We always come across the best finds for a fraction of the cost, you’re reducing waste and most use their profits to benefit amazing causes.

Living the Dream Every Single Day

BY TARA BURKE

This post features two items I’ve had my eyes on for awhile, this Walk in Love long sleeve tee and my Jack Rogers booties. I just loved the saying on this tee because I think it is so important to go after your crazy dreams and believe you are walking and living in them every day. It also reminds me to stay grateful for the love I have around me and the things we’re so blessed to call basics like shelter, food, clothes and safety. If we’re given the opportunity and are able to alleviate other’s burdens in this manner, I’d say we’re living the dream!

Favorite Winter Sweater

BY TARA BURKE

While in the 12South area of Nashville, (travel posts coming soon!) I found this great chunky sweater for $10! The boutique I got it from, Vinnie Louise, had literally just put up the sale sign as we were walking by, so we got first dibs on all their unique merchandise. This sweater was actually from their girl’s line. If you’re petite you can sometimes get away with purchasing from the larger girl’s sizes, so the sleeves were a little short, but I like quarter length sleeves anyway!

Game Day: Two Looks

BY CAILIN BURKE

It’s GIANTS game day! Tara and I decided to each choose a different take on game day apparel in honor of tonight’s matchup. Since it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and you can see every team incorporating pink into their uniforms, I went that route too. I threw on one of my favorite Giants hats, which is the actual Breast Cancer Awareness hat worn by the team a few years ago! Since my other red, white, and blue team apparel didn’t match well with the hat, I just kept the rest of the look sporty with a black shirt, pink and blue flannel, and an infinity scarf to add a bit more pink into my look. I also wore a Giants bracelet that’s made with actual materials from a football!

Tara wore the classic Giants colors and sported her favorite raglan tee. She also wore her Polo Ralph Lauren sneaks that happened to match perfectly. Now that we’ve got our Giants apparel on, we can’t wait for tonight’s game!
