Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Well the holidays have quickly approached! But before you get carried away thinking about how many slices of pumpkin pie you’re going to eat on Thanksgiving, don’t forget to plan the perfect Turkey Day outfit!

Every year we are stuck deciding between going to dinner in a more casual outfit or making it a more dressy occasion. The great news is that both are totally acceptable.

Dressy:

If the holidays are your time to shine, try some sparkle and velvet.

The Gold Mock Neck Sleeveless Dress is flowy and has a subtle sparkle to it.

The Burgundy Velvet V Back Swing Dress is trendy and simple with a cute lower cut in the back. It comes in burgundy, too!

Casual:

If your style calls for a more relaxed vibe while you gobble ’til you wobble, look no further than a flowy dress and a tunic!

The Charcoal Floral X Front Babydoll Dress is perfect for a bohemian fall look. If you can’t get enough of this adorable pattern, try the tunic as well. It can be worn with leggings or your favorite skinny jeans.

Pair both of these with some cute heels to add the perfect holiday touch.

What ever your style is, we hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving filled with family, love, food, and of course the perfect outfit!

Guide to Ordering Pumpkin Drinks at Starbucks

*IMG_4310_small.jpg

Did somebody say PSL?

We’re all about the pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. We’ve been ordering it almost every day now, and although we’re utterly obsessed with it, we’ve decided to try out a few other pumpkin flavored drink options to switch things up.

Here are a few customized favorites that we think are just as yummy. You can order these at Starbucks or any other of your favorite coffee shops.

1. Pumpkin Spice Latte
Ah, the classic we all know and love. Iced or hot, this is just the perfect drink. We wouldn’t even be making this list if it wasn’t for the PSL.

2. Chai Latte-With Pumpkin Sauce
A personal favorite of ours. If you like more of a cinnamon taste, substitute the regular chai for the Teavana Oprah chai. Your barista may ask how many pumps of pumpkin sauce-we recommend just telling them to put the usual amount they would depending on the size you ordered. Adding the pumpkin syrup is delicious and a must-try. It’s perfect either iced or hot.

3. Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino-Cream Based
If you’re in the mood for something sweeter, this is definitely for you. This would usually have espresso in it but by ordering it cream based it just substitutes the coffee for milk. Which basically makes it a pumpkin milkshake. Topped off with nutmeg over the whipped cream, the PSF makes a delicious dessert-type drink.

4. White Chocolate Mocha-With Pumpkin Sauce
This one is a bit more bold and decadent. If your go-to drink is the white mocha, add some pumpkin syrup to step-up your pumpkin game. Again, this is great either iced or hot.

How to Tie a Blanket Scarf

How-To-Tie-A-Blanket-Scarf.jpg

Fall is finally here! And while California is still blazing hot, we’re excited about the upcoming cooler weather because we’ll get to wear our boots and scarves once again.

Blanket scarves can be tricky to work with because they’re usually very bulky and thick. But we’ve broken it down to just 6 easy steps!

  1. Unfold your scarf all the way and hold it out.

img_2459

2. Bring the opposite corners together and fold. Your scarf should now be in a triangle.

img_2465

3. Place the scarf in front of you with the shortest side of the triangle now being in the front.

img_2466

4. Wrap the two longest sides around each other behind your neck. Let the sides now hang in front of you.

img_2469

5. Now, tie the longest sides in a knot underneath the front of your scarf. The front will hide the knot so don’t worry about how the knot looks.

6. And there you have it! Your blanket scarf is now tied to perfection! Pair it with your favorite outfit, grab a pumpkin spice latte and you’re ready for Fall!

What to Wear on a Road Trip

So many of us travel during the summer, and road trips are an easy way to go some place new without spending too much money or time. We love just taking a weekend off and driving up the coast, to the mountains, or even the desert (when it’s not too hot!).

When you go on a road trip, you’ll probably stop off at different places to eat & explore, so you want to look cute, but still feel comfy while sitting in the car for hours. Sometimes it can be hard to put together a comfy outfit that doesn’t include yoga pants & a sports bra, so we thought we would show you a few ideas of what you can wear!

#1: Flared Pants & Graphic Tee

Swap out those yoga leggings for some fun printed flared pants! These tie dye ones are so cute and feel just like pajamas or yoga pants.Throw on a graphic tee to complete the look!

*IMG_4121

#2: Maxi Skirt & Cute Tank

Just like the flared pants, these maxi skirts are so comfy and we are always getting new ones in different prints & colors. Just throw on a cute tank and you’re good to go!

*IMG_4671

#3: Flowy Dress & Lace Bralette

This is perhaps our favorite outfit out of the three because it’s so easy! You can basically wear any flowy dress and feel comfy & cool while sitting in the car for hours. Plus, you’ll look exceptionally cute and photo-ready when you get out of the car to explore!

What’s in Our Bag?

*IMG_5674.jpgToday’s post is all about the essentials! There are certain must-haves every girl carries throughout her day to day life, and these are our list of favorites!

Shopping Canvas Tote – First off, the bag! We love our pink canvas tote which reads, “I have been shopping my entire life and I still have nothing to wear”. A struggle almost every girl understands! It’s the perfect size tote to carry around our essentials.

Peach Blossom iPhone Case – Something we cannot live without is our phone. Rifle Paper Co. has a super girly case available in two floral patterns. The clear case shows off the color of your iPhone 6/6s or 6 plus. It also has a bumper in the front which is helpful in case you ever drop your phone.

Tassel Keychain – Another must is our keys! To add some flare to our common house and car keys, we’ve added a fun tassel keychain. It’s available in a few colors-so pick one that shows off your individual style! But of course, we went with the pink!

Cosmetic Bag – Our cosmetic bag is important to carry all our fave lipsticks and mascaras. Especially on a hot summer day, touch-ups are vital. Carry it in your bag or on its own (because it’s that cute!).

Round Sunglasses – Sunglasses are also very important  on a sunny day. Not only do they protect your eyes, but they’re stylish and match with everything!

Bando Agenda Planner – For keeping up with our crazy schedules, from coffee dates to hair appointments, we like to carry our Bando agenda. This 17-month agenda book comes with stickers to mark important dates and fun artwork for each individual month.

Let’s Do This! Notepad – Sometimes, there are things we need to quickly jot down, like a phone number or an Instagram handle! For those times when we need to leave a little note, we carry our Rifle Paper Co. notepad. The checklist is adorned with a cute floral pattern that says, “Let’s Do This!”

Bando Water Bottle – It’s important to stay hydrated. To thirst our quench, we keep our beverage of choice in the Bando water bottle. It reads, “After this, we’re getting pizza”. Our favorite food-Yum!!

And that’s it! Our Daisy Shoppe must-haves all contained in the cutest little tote. What’s in your bag?
