Don’t Be Green With Envy: St. Patrick’s Day Outfits

Don’t Be Green With Envy: St. Patrick’s Day Outfits

St. Patrick's Day is a pretty important holiday for us because Kathryn and Joe live close to Greenville Avenue, home to Dallas' annual St. Patrick's Day parade; and Dallas goes hard for this holiday. Last year we broke tradition because we were both in Scotland, but usually St. Pat's entails waking up obscenely early for [...]

Put On Your Party Pajamas: PJs for Every Size and Every Slumber Party

When Kathryn got married she gave us all matching pajamas to get ready in, in a color and theme that matched her wedding, of course.

We love sequins; I even made black sequins part of the dress code for Kathryn's bachelorette. If it is socially acceptable to wear sequins—or even if it's not—I will wear them. But sequin dresses can [...]

What to Wear to Sit in the Living Room: Thanksgiving Outfits

Halloween is over and that means it is time to start preparing for Thanksgiving! In addition to the turkey, stuffing, place settings, and pies we also have to plan out the perfect Turkey Day outfit.
