Erin's Ode to Plaid

Today we're recapping Erin's "Ode to Plaid" week.  She chose a red and blue hued plaid number.  Layering it under jackets and layering it over graphic tees, Erin proved that the plaid shirt is our favorite layering piece.  It adds texture, pattern and warmth--we'd even argue that you can treat this patterned shirt as a neutral.  So, I'm sure the 5x5 girls will be featuring this baby again sometime soon.

Gem Club 5x5 Challenge: Kristen's PATCH NYC Scarf

Wowwwwie, THIS was a fun week.  If you were following along on Instagram, I think you would agree that our Gem Club friends totally crushed their 5x5 challenge.  First up we're recapping Kristen--Gem Club's very talented cellist--and her beautiful blue plaid and striped Patch NYC scarf.

Wearing the double patterned fabric around her neck, as a skirt and as an unexpected wrap shirt, Kristen clearly proved that the scarf is one of the most versatile pieces a girl can own.  Her cello even got to have some fun with it on Day 5! 

Kudos to Kristen for rocking it this week.  We love the eclectic funk you brought to the 5x5 challenge.  We can't wait to play together again sometime soon! 

Don't forget to check out Gem Club and their second album release, In Roses, at the end of the month.  They'll be playing at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston on January 31 to celebrate the release--so be sure to check it out!

And stay tuned as we finish up the Gem Club recaps with Ieva's equally-as-funky-and-fun 5x5 challenge.

For the Ladies: Recap with Erin

Recapping Erin's For the Ladies Week with the Wolverine Evelyn 1000 Mile boots.  And let us just start by saying...these. boots. are. amazing.  The boots were perfect with skirts, dresses, and skinny pants. And with the Wolverines, Erin officially whipped out her infamous collection of tights and knee highs for the fall & winter. 

She will admit: wearing a new pair of leather boots for 5 days straight, wasn't too difficult to style.  But breaking them in was tough!  But after day 4 or 5, Erin's feet felt right at home and they are the most bad ass, comfortable boots she's ever worn.  A new pair of shit kickers to add to the mix this winter!  Thanks to Ball and Buck and Wolverine for an awesome week.
