today we,

two twenty somethings wishing we were ladies who lunch. we can dream, right?

currently listening to: hall & oates, you make my dreams come true. 

todaywe, had the pleasure of going to the hall & oates concert at the hollywood bowl on july 3rd to celebrate america. this is still playing in my head after watching 60 somethings rock out for over an hour.

(hall’s still got it, by the way)

it’s wednesday and today we are girl crushing.

lately, these ladies can do no wrong. short, long legged, love to take naked photos of themselves— it doesn’t matter— their fashion choices are always on point. behold my current celebrity girl crushes:

ashley olsen. this photo is from 2007 and i would wear this entire outfit now. it’s hard to go wrong with jorts and givenchy. kudos.

rachel bilson. summer from the oc captured my heart years ago and her style just gets better and better. plus, any girl that rocks jorts this well is a superstar in my book.

diane kruger. legs for days and dates pacey witter? winner, hands down. 

and blake lively. another contender of the legs for days award. i like to daydream that if i got my ass into gear, i could look something like this. soooo far from the truth, but it’s nice to pretend (although, i am excelling at the tan portion this summer). 

who are you crushing on these days?

it’s tuesday and today we are serving up party favors

everyone loves a party. so remember to be the hostess with the mostest and shell out for these awesome finds that are sure to get your friends talking long after the last champagne cocktail has been drunk…

whiskey to go? yes, please. the above photo might be a wedding favor, but we wholeheartedly support this fine beverage for a hand out to friends at the end of a fabulous party. i suggest taking polaroid photos throughout the evening to fasten onto everyone’s as they leave the scene.

homemade cds. seriously, there is no better way to look back fondly on an event than to be able to play the tunes from the night. one of my oldest friends just found a cd that we got as party favors from a birthday party in 1999. you best believe “the boy is mine” by monica and brandy is on there and we laugh every time we hear it. 

shortbread/any baked good. cheap, cute, and easy. plus, if it’s coming from someone who is a baking newbie (me!), then the guests will know what a labor of love it was. head on over to 100layercake for a diy that even i can follow.

it’s friday and today we are trying out suburbia

Courtney and I are both camped out in suburbia for the summer… and while we are creatures of the the ever expansive LA network of housing sprawl, neither of us have been full time residents of the burbs since before we could vote.  

Its not all bad… private swimming pools, drive thru sbucks, and no running into former hook ups while walking to get post hangover bagels at your corner joint.  In the spirit of embracing our circumstances, Courtney took up Zumba, the latin inspired, dance and squat craze that is the staple of any good ladies who lunch daily routine.
