Two things we’re fond of: 1) white jeans and 2) men. However, we’re also fond of both our high school cheerleading uniform and the present, and we’re not sure they belong together either. What do you think ladies? Is this one step too far? Don’t hear us wrong. We love a little metro. Give us the Sevens. Give us the skinny ties. But white jeans…let’s save those for ourselves and Don Johnson.

We wrote about our screaming-kids-in-the-iPhone-store induced poor decision on our last iPhone case. Okay, so we secretly liked it a little, but let’s be honest, pink + black and white polka dots is a little loud. We’ve now discovered the best brand for girlie, but classy iPhone cases in Jonathan Alder (thanks Reader Mo!), and they are around $25-28 (instead of $40 like our Kate Spade case). We like how ours (below) looks like a modern spin on our grandmother’s old couch. And it looks cute with the white iPhone! Plus he has all sorts of cute little travel coffee mugs, keychains, etc. that make cute gifts. Check them out.

Sometimes you have your heart set on something, but life doesn’t always work out like you want it to. It is what it is. If Tory Burch boots allude you too, check out these cute Land’s End boots from Reader egray. They are $90 and a step up from the turquise Land’s End fleece you sported in fifth grade.

Glasses without lens. Glasses without lens. What to say. What to say. Over breakfast last Sunday, we stumbled into an interesting conversation with a self proclaimed “redneck” (ew) about the trend of glasses without lens. We probably don’t need to elaborate on the redneck’s stance, but (as Carrie Bradshaw would say), “later that day, we got to thinking” about said trend. And we can’t lie….and we know we are about to get scalded in cyberspace…we think it’s kinda fun, funny, and playful. Sorry! Sorry it’s true! Curse me and my 20/20 vision. I want glasses! Sure, we get that it’s ridiculous, and we’d never do it (chill out emum), but there is something so ridiculous about it that it’s endearing (like Jersey Shore). And yes, it’s only for hipsters, and yes there are entire forums dedicated to how much people hate this trend, but let’s hear it ladies – what do you think about glasses without lens (even if you are actually not a hipster, except a little bit in your head)?

Right after Labor Day, everyone wants us to write about one thing and one thing only. Can we continue to wear white…? Everyone always says it’s okay, but no one really ever does it. We always make bold claims about how we don’t care what antiquated fashion rules say, but then whenever we attempt to walk out of the house in our white jeans, it just feels wrong (and you may note that everything generally feels pretty right about our white jeans, as we’ve pretty much had a love affair with them for the past two summers as evidenced by half of the recent pics of me on this blog).
Even Emily Post’s Book of Etiquette (17th Edition) says white after Labor Day is okay…but we’re on the (white picket?) fence. In Georgia, summer ain’t going anywhere for awhile. So help us ladies, what’s the white thing to do? In the very least, check out these cute cropped Breton’s on sales.

You know we love a deal, so when we saw Mon Ami bracelets on sale for $29 (regularly $200), we had to have them. Gotta love Jill’s Steals & Deals (Comforters, Stella & Jamie handbags, and Philosophy beauty products on sale too). What is it about these bracelets that actually look sort of like something the love of our seventh grade life gave us for Christmas circa 1995, and why are they better now? Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Heidi Klum, and Demi Moore love them. Duh, #WINNING.

A few weeks ago, this cute little recent UVA grad was sitting next to us in church wearing these thong sandals. Forgive us Father, for we have sinned, as we were tan with envy by how cute they looked with her white jeans and pink toenail polish. As we sat there (already distracted from the sermon), we started contemplating, “What are the chances that these will go on end of summer sale? What are the chances that these will go on END OF SUMMER SALE?” Well, looks like zip. But here there are. And we may have to have them anyway.
