Street Style – AJ

As Taylor and I have mentioned before, we don’t want this blog to be about just us, we want it to be about you, too (but definitely not U2). We know you ladies have something to say about style, and we want to hear what it is. And frankly, we’re getting a little tired of our own faces as of late, and I am pretty sure that my neighbors think I’m insane because they have caught me on multiple occasions standing in my driveway with a selfie stick trying to figure out how to get my whole outfit into a picture. Living that blog lifestyle is embarrassing af sometimes y’all.

Yeah, We Wrote A Brunch Post.

Call us basic if you want, but we love brunch, okay? It combines two of life’s great pleasures – fancy breakfast food and day drinking – and for that reason it’s a meal that has achieved iconic status. So you know a brunch post had to be inevitable, and you know that brunch had to be eaten in downtown Decatur, because your girls love a cute restaurant in a historic building. Which is also why we chose Revival, Kevin Gillespie’s homey (literally–the space is a beautiful old house that has been restored as closely as possible to its original state) classic Southern food concept on Church Street.

Takin’ It To the Streets

Like many of you, we were proud to participate in the anti-Trump women’s marches this weekend. Lindsey was in Chicago, and I was lucky enough to be in DC. It’s hard to put into words what the experience of coming together with so many of our fellow citizens, mostly women, meant to us, but we want to try.  Read More

Does This Come In Black?

Well fam, it’s Tuesday, and you know what that means – you’re one day closer to Sunday brunch… aaaand a new TST post! We decided to give the people what they want and show y’all some clothes this week since we do fancy ourselves a style blog and we were naked last week, on a break the week before that, and then pretty much just complaining about stuff in our last post of December.

Take Care

Although we as a nation are divided, after perusing social media on New Year’s Eve, it seems there’s one thing we can all agree on: 2016 was a dumpster fire and is cordially invited to go fuck itself. As relieved as Lindsey and I are to see the backside of the shitshow of these last twelve months, though, there are a lot of reasons 2017 is likely to be just as rough a ride, which is why in our first post of the year, we want to talk to you about the importance of self-care.  Read More

Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum

As I sit here under my Christmas tree on my third glass of $8 Kroger wine, wrapping the last of my Christmas gifts and cringing and dying a little on the inside every time I stick a piece of tape full of dog hair onto a package, it’s hard to muster up even the most microscopic amount of Christmas spirit.

Stretch the Halls

It’s the holiday season, which means you’ve probably got at least one party on your calendar, whether it’s a family get-together, a work shindig, or an excuse for you and your friends to dress up and drink eggnog. If you’re a cocktail dress gal, there are plenty of places to turn for guidance, as there should be—every blog, magazine, and retailer will point you in the direction of a million bangin’ frocks. And listen: a sparkly little number and a pair of high heels are one of life’s great pleasures, so if you go that route, we salute you. However, holiday parties also mean food, glorious food! Maybe you’re one of those super-disciplined babes who prefers to keep it as healthy as possible, sticking to crudites and a cookie or two, but us? We came to eat, honey. The cheese ball, the chip & dip, the sugar cookies, the candy: we’re not holding back. We’re stuffing our faces for the baby Jesus, and that means we need EATIN’ PANTS. Read More

If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home Now

So far, we’ve talked a lot about personal style as it pertains to clothing, but style is more than that – it’s also about the space you live in. Lindsey and I are both homebodies (as in, there’s at least a 50% chance that anytime one of us asks the other to hang out, she will reply, “I’d love to, but I’d love to stay on the couch watching Netflix more.”), so our homes and their decor are sacred, and just as much thought – if not more – went into the look of our houses as goes into our outfits. So today, we thought we’d show you our favorite rooms and talk about why we love them. Mostly because we’re proud of all our cool shit, but also because we like peeking into how other people live, and we thought you might, too. Read More

self/image

I think of myself (mostly affectionately) as a big girl. I’m tall; I have a large frame; I’m pear-shaped; I’m in good physical shape. These are all clinical descriptors that strip my body down to its essence. They do nothing to describe my relationship to it, but I rely on these objective metrics when I’m grappling with my self-image. These are the facts, largely immutable, the truth about my body in its natural state. Read More

A Conversation With Linda, Mel and Sarah

As Taylor and I have mentioned in previous posts, our primary goal for this blog is to create a space where women can talk openly, honestly, and from the heart about their own style and what that means to them. We aim to have meaningful conversations about clothes that dive a bit deeper into why we like the things we like and why we choose the things we choose. Read More
