style spotter // palm springs

Ahh springtime. That glorious season full of pastels & new blooms & the promise of warmer days. Coincidentally, it’s also when we start getting serious about summer vaca. We admit, our joint plans this year are up in the air. We vowed in Spain and Portugal to always meet in August for a week of luxury, but we have no idea when or where or how this year. Currently, our minds are wandering west. Though we successfully explored NorCal together two years ago, a return to the West Coast is in the cards and lately, we’ve been perusing Palm Spring vacation rentals. Though Carolyn is always happy to make the hop across the pond for…

style spotter: havana, cuba

It should come as no surprise that we’re more than a little obsessed with Christmas here at LT HQ. If you follow us on Instagram, then you’ve probably noticed the recent onslaught of all things festive. (And if you don’t follow us on Instagram, then why the hell not?!). But, once the fairy dust has settled and all our ornaments are back in their boxes, we hit a SEVERE slump. It’s not long before we’re aching for longer days and warmer weather, and we usually try to combat this with some early spring travel to a beachy destination. Though we have a few things in mind for 2017, there’s one place that has long been…

That’s because in just a few weeks (days, practically), we’re off on another grand adventure: MYKONOS Yes, correct, our trip with MyGreek-Villa is just around the corner, and naturally, we’re starting to figure out what the heck we’re going to wear! As we’re going a little after peak season, we’re hoping for perfect pool weather… but nothing’s a guarantee, so we must be prepared. Unfortunately, we’re terrible at being prepared! What we’re not terrible at, however, is scrolling through the endless pieces on Polyvore and wishing our own…

style spotter // from country to city with @loandsons

It happened. #LTportugal came and went and August is almost over and the leaves in London have already started to turn and we’ve picked our destination for Friendsgiving and the circle of life continues. And, much like the predictability of seasons changing and vacations ending, we officially conquered our latest country together in style. All while accessorizing accordingly. In case you missed the memo, we spent one week in Northern Portugal, splitting our time between Porto and the Douro Valley, which is, arguably, Portugal’s most famous wine region. For throwing this trip together at lit-ra-lly the last minute, we nailed it. Our itinerary was perfect, and we solemnly swear to share every second. But first!…

style spotter // summer beauty must-haves

When it comes to summer beauty, we agree on one key factor: less is more. Who wants to feel like their make-up is caked on when you also have to throw sunscreen and sweat into the mix? Pas nous. Even so… we’re not insane — erm, brave enough to go totally bare. With this in mind, here’s what we’re loving right now. purpletale’s 5 Steps to Lovely Skin Complete Facial Solution // Apparently, a suuuuper fun side effect of aging is that your skin wakes up one day and is all, “You think imma elasticize myself, bitch?” and you’re all, “well… you always did before?” Nay, no more. Now, we spend our lives trying to…
