    This is Katie.

    Navy has always been a favorite. And Indigo. Either or, really. There was a time when the shade dominated the pallet of my closet and my life. And now, after years of venturing in the world of color, I welcome navy back like an old friend. 

    For you consideration...that beautiful deep shade of blue.

  • Ooey-gooey Grilled Chocolate Sandwich

    This is Rebecca. 

    Hi again friends! Excuse my absence, but I have a good reason, I promise! I've been enjoying summer and motherhood with what might be the cutest 4 month old on the planet. I mean look at this chub, can you blame me?

    ...I didn't think so. ANYWAYSSSS, enough about me. This post is about chocolate.

    I call these "ooey-gooey grilled chocolate sandwiches", but "a lil slice of heaven" might be more accurate. You can make these with the bread we made a few months ago, or any other bread you can get your hands on. All you need is:

    • A couple slices of bread
    • Bittersweet chocolate chunks
    • Some good, unsalted butter
    • Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling (or flaky sea salt, whichever you fancy)

    Generously butter one side of each slice of bread, and put them buttered side down in a skillet on medium until golden. Next, put a nice thick layer of chocolate chunks on one of the bread slices and put the remaining slice on top. Flip and plate once the chocolate is all melty and well, ooey-gooey.

    Sprinkle garnish of choice, pour yourself a cold glass of milk, and devour.

  • Head...Over...Heels

    This is Katie.

    You are not going to believe this... but this is the first pair of heels I have ever bought. Hence, the hoopla. Elise didn't believe me either! It was one of my deepest, darkest style secrets. Come on! I can't be the only one who thinks heels are scary.

    Luckily, for my feet, I have decided to be an adventurer.

    I must admit, choosing a trendier heel felt safer for me and I was overcome with temptation. However, I did not give in (and Elise wouldn't let me). Choosing something classic with a timeless style was MUCH scarier than going with the flow...aaahhhh, the philosophy of shoes.

    Yup. I love them.

    This day was a dream. Malibu offered the backdrop for a beach picnic. My dear friend Kristin and I dined on bread and cheese until the marine layer cleared enough for us to have to cool off in the big, blue, wet thing (Muppets anyone?).

    Now let's talk overalls. I succumbed to the trend for $7 thanks to Goodwill. Not much of a risk, but a huge pay-off. If you've been thinking about trying it out, I say go for it. They go well with sand, sea-lion spottings, and sunburns.

    This is Katie.

    Here we see the beauty that is Eclectic Eccentricity! The nice people from E.E. gifted us with two awesome necklaces and our logo reincarnated as rings! Their pieces bring out the youth and lady in everyone - little bit of whimsy, little bit of pretty. Go check out the rest of their collection!!!

    We recommend pairing pretty gold with...anything. The cicada we like with a little bit of girly to tone down the "I'm still a 7 year old boy vibe".
