A Night in May

JEANS:: Mother // TOP:: (old Rag and Bone) Similar here and here // SANDALS:: Sam Edelman // EARRINGS:: Bauble Bar // BAG:: Cult Gaia

As I mentioned in our Weekend Recap on Monday, my husband and I went up to Nantucket for the night and we had gorgeous weather. May through June is always a little chilly, so I make sure to pack on the warmer side just in case!

For our night out we went into town for dinner and ate at Station 21. It was new last Summer and is sister restaurants with the mega popular LOLA. If you're thinking about heading up to Nantucket this Summer season I highly recommend both of these restaurants.

Being on the chilly side but feeling in Summer mode, I opted for jeans with sandals and a long sleeve off the shoulder top. I cannot say enough about my two style steals in this outfit. The Sam Edelman sandals and the Bauble Bar earrings are such good buys for Summer and they were a MAJOR steal!

So excited to finally use this bag! My mom actually just purchased the mother of pearl one and its GORGEOUS! I'm going to have to get my hands on it!

The earrings also come in a few other colors! I think this color will be my next purchase (and also loving these)

 My husband took these shot's as the sun was going down so the lighting is a little warmer (he is slowly learning the ropes!) I have really embraced high waisted jeans and have just purchased these and these from J.Crew. I truly believe there is nothing like a solid pair of jeans and a great white top. Chrissy and I can both admit we may have too many white tops but then it's even more fun to accessorize with color!

Almost the long weekend - treat yourself!

Memorial Day Weekend is so close we can practically taste it. Which means:: BBQs, Beach, Family time, and of course some good old sales. LOFT is kicking off their Memorial Day Weekend Sale with 40% off (some items at 50%) all full priced items with code FLASH. This Chambray top with flutter sleeves (also comes in Maternity for all my preg friends!) is from LOFT and is a perfect everyday top.

Lust List

Survey Recap:: Just wanted to thank all of you who took our survey and gave us your feedback! We so appreciate it.

Here's what you loved and want to see more of::

  • Outfit Posts: both styled outfits and outfits of the day. We are going to try to share the majority of our outfits of the day on our Instagram stories (and some in our Instagram feed) and we will continue with our styled outfits. We are hoping to up the amount we post these as well!
  • Beauty Posts: Kaitlin is definitely more of the "Beauty Buff." I'm actually in the process of upping my skin care regimen because 1. Wrinkles and 2. My friend's 4 year old asked if I was Hunter's Grandma...Insert crying emoji face.
  • More Affordable Fashions: Kaitlin and I both like mixing highs and lows and love hunting for style steals. We will definitely be featuring more affordable pieces.
  • House Tours & Interior Decor: Once again, Kaitlin's alley. Her apartment in NYC is AMAZING. And decorated perfectly. She's putting the finishing touches on a few more rooms and has a date booked to photograph her apartment. So stay tuned! In terms of my house: it's run by a tiny army of 3 and looks like a hurricane has run through it 90% of the time. I'm actually in the works of changing things around a bit and will definitely keep you updated.
  • Children Posts: I wasn't sure if people would be interested in this because I know not all of our followers have children but now that we know there is some interest we will definitely be focusing some posts on children's clothes etc.
  • Local Spots: Kaitlin and I are both HUGE homebodies. I am so much so that it's a running joke with my siblings. Constantly being made fun of (I am one of five). That being said, we do have our go-to spots and we both enjoy trying out new spots (just not every night!). We were thinking we would each do a roundup of some of our favorite spots.
There was also some questions about how to determine who was writing/posting what. On Instagram we use a hashtag #inkaitlinscloset #inchrissyscloset on whatever we individually post. In our stories we started putting our initials at the bottom of each story. And on the blog we started signing our names at the end of each post. 

There was honestly so much unique feedback and we promise to try and touch on all of it. Above is just a general summary! 

Thanks again for taking the time to follow and visit our blog. It means the world to us!

Weekend Recap

Grant and I decided to drive up to Nantucket this past weekend and the weather (plus the food and wine) did not disappoint! I think I successfully ate my way through the island in 24 hours - everything is just that good!

We drove up to Hyannis early Saturday morning and caught the 930am ferry (he drove, P and I slept!) We actually sat up top for the ferry ride, which is outside so I was relived to have worn these Beyond Yoga leggings and this Wildfox sweatshirt. Both are some of the coziest pieces I own!

Although way too fast, the weekend was a success. We had the best time letting Penelope off leash for a long walk something she never gets to do in the city!
Below are some pieces I am currently loving and stay tuned for a post this week featuring my outfit above!

Friday Favorites :: Easy Dresses

If you live in NYC or happened to be visiting this week, we have experienced quite the heat wave! I tend to freak out a little inside because that means I can no longer wear my beloved jeans but I have to bite the bullet and transition into dresses.

Commuting to work in the City can be quite daunting with the general hustle and bustle of rush hour, the survival of the fittest to push your way onto the subway and those days where the bus just decides to not show up for thirty minutes. Combine all of that PLUS a heat wave and you wish you just stayed home plunked down next to the AC.

So with that - enter easy, breezy dresses. Every Summer before it gets extremely warm I like to scoop up a few dresses from GAP, Old Navy & Loft that I can just rotate for my work week. These inexpensive pieces don't skimp on style!

This GAP dress was one of the first I have purchased for this season. It's honestly perfect for Spring & Summer! Only a few short weeks ago when NYC didn't feel like a frying pan, I wore this dress with these booties and this jean jacket! It was the cutest outfit for a Spring workday. I then also wore it to Mother's Day brunch with these shoes! 

Here's to looking off into the weekend! Below are a roundup off all of my favorite easy summer dresses to wear for work and play!

Club Monaco Spend & Save Event

We love waking up to sale emails especially when it's from one of our all time favorites. Club Monaco just launched their Spend & Save Event today and we couldn't be more excited. Save 20% on orders $200+, 25% on $300+ and 30% on $400+ with code Summer. I've been a huge fan of Club Monaco ever since it first opened and what I love most about it is I never seem to tire of their pieces. I actually just wore a Club Monaco dress that I bought over five years ago. I think this dress will be one of those dresses, one that I continue to go back to for years to come. It's the perfect wedding guest dress!

I also have my eye on this dress. Simple and perfect for summer. Something that I can wear with flat sandals during the day and dress up with wedges at night. Love the tie detail. I don't tend to wear black too often but this jumpsuit is beautiful- check out the back! This top is also another favorite of mine that I've already worn a ton this spring. Pair it with light colored denim and you have the perfect summery look! And definitely be sure to check out their collection of swimwear- AMAZING!
