Must-Have For Fall: Everlane Stretch Denim

1024 846 Melissa Mayer

From the West Coast to the East Coast, my friend and LSK editor, Melissa, and I styled new must-have denim for fall…meet the Everlane Authentic Stretch Denim collection. We seriously cannot say enough good things about these jeans. High waist, check. Stretch without stretching out, check. Perfect ankle length, check. Beautiful wash options, check. Just when you think it couldn’t get better…they are sustainably made in a responsible factory in Vietnam. How incredible is that? Also…just $68 a pair. Such a win! I am wearing the dark wash and Melis is wearing the medium wash. As their hashtag says, these jeans are REAL good. #DamnGoodDenim.

Thanks to Everlane for sending us these jeans to try! We will seriously be living in them all fall. Shop them below! xx

Why I Love Weekend Trips To Laguna

826 1024 Melissa Mayer

You might have seen on Instagram that Jase and I spent the long holiday weekend in Laguna. It was such a joy as always, so I thought I should share with ya’ll why I love weekend trips to Laguna beach so much. It is seriously our happy place!

Reason #1

It is truly the one place I feel like I can completely unwind. My brain shuts down almost immediately!

Reason #2

The weather is always so beautiful, even when it’s gloomy! It’s cooler than LA, so it’s extra refreshing + I love the fresh ocean air.

Reason #3

Jase and I always have the best conversations here, and it’s the most special place to recharge and reconnect when our work schedules are extra busy.

Reason #4

We absolutely love the food and quaint restaurants in downtown Laguna. We feel like we have really gotten to know even the hidden gems.

Reason #5

We love the beach and the peaceful environment that this little beach town is. We just feel right at home, and we always laugh because two days there feels like we were on a week’s vacation!

My Go-To Travel Uniform

1024 661 Melissa Mayer

This summer has been a summer of travel for me and Jase, and we have enjoyed it so much! You have probably noticed that on Instagram from all of the seat cleaning IG stories! Ha, but seriously though, I gotta wipe those seats down! 🙂

Not only is traveling so fun, but it also makes coming home so sweet. With all the recent travels, I have definitely established my go-to travel uniform which makes deciding what to wear on take-off day a total breeze.

For starters, this suitcase brings me such joy! It makes packing so easy and the color is super fun. I always reach for this sweatshirt, too, because it is incredibly comfy, and totally perfect paired with some black joggers…Everlane, Abercombie, and Lou & Grey all have great options. This carry-all bag makes for a great carryon on option; it is the perfect addition to a roller suitcase.

Normally I travel with a hat on, but I didn’t this time! A wide-brim one from Janessa Leone or a cap from Free People are typically on my travel hat rotation. You can’t go wrong with a solid baseball cap, either. The finishing element is a great white sneak that is comfortable and well worn-in.

What about you? What is your travel uniform?

Molekule Review for Allergy Relief

683 1024 Lauren Kennedy

Has anyone else been struggling as much as Jason and I this season with allergies? Even my family in Dallas has been saying that it is the worst they have ever experienced.

We have tried everything holistic to bring relief – taking red ginseng, diffusing essential oils, keeping the windows shut – and nothing seems to be doing the trick. Until Molekule.
Molekule is a revolutionary new kind of air purifier. Instead of just trying to collect pollutants on filters, Molekule uses nanotechnology to actually destroy them at the molecular level (hooray!). Allergens, mold, bacteria, viruses and airborne chemicals are all completely eliminated, leaving nothing but clean, healthy air in your home.
Why we love it:
1) It’s aesthetically pleasing.
2) It has made a big difference in our allergies in just a week!
3) It can completely replace the air in a 600 square foot room once every hour.
This genius air filter destroys pollutants instead of just trapping them on filters where they can multiply and be released back into the air you breathe.
And the best part? They have an annual filter subscription, which ensures that you never run out of filters. Replacements are delivered to your door when you need them. It costs $129 a year, and the first year is free!

Thank you, Molekule, for gifting me this air purifier!

564 846 Melissa Mayer

Hey friends! Sharing five Nordstrom buys to invest in now, during the sale! I have and am so happy that I did, so naturally I had to share! Get the deets and inspo below.

good denim this sale offers a great time to invest in a good pair of denim. These are so comfortable, flattering, and are a closet staple. Other good ones: these / these / these

ankle booties these are so comfy and are those go-to boots for fall/winter. I bought similar boots last season, and they are already worn out because I worn them so much, so I was so happy to see similar ones and purchased them ASAP! Loving this pair, too.

forever luggage luggage can be so pricey, so this sale provides the perfect opportunity to invest in a good quality suitcase.

trucker jacket I have this same jacket in a blue denim color and wore it so much last season, so adding this gray color made me so thrilled. Levi’s is one of my all time favorite brands + it’s affordable and so classic.

cape poncho- my winter splurge! I love this cape sweater so much, and it is extra cute on!
