It has delicious basic recipes as well as crowd-pleasing recipes for all occasions! 

Wine Yoga With Enjoy Leggings

We have always loved the idea of taking time to connect with our mind and body. Unfortunately, we rarely make time to meditate, practice yoga, or even take a deep breath. So over the weekend, when there was a break in the rain, we decided to enjoy a glass of wine and try some yoga poses that we learned from the recent yoga class we took while on our Cambria Girls Weekend (Hey, there is such thing as beer yoga classes so why not wine yoga!). 

We discovered Enjoy Leggings recently and LOVE how soft and stylish their leggings are! Plus, the material is opaque so there is no risk of your undies showing. It's hard to find affordable leggings that are comfy, stylish, and totally functional. Enjoy Leggings is an awesome monthly subscription service. For just $16.95 you receive a new pair of leggings in your mail box every month! With so many patterns every shipment is a surprise (we love surprises!). Enjoy Leggings also donates a portion of their proceeds to charities that promote healthy body image for women. We think this is awesome and can't think of any reason not to subscribe!

Sign up today for your first pair of ultra soft stylish leggings - use our code IVYANDEVE for 25% off!

P.S. Please don't judge our yoga form...although we are experienced wine sippers, our yoga is a work in progress!

Thank you Enjoy Leggings for partnering with us for this post! 

Love is in the Air: Gift Guide

Valentine's Day is one of our favorite holidays to celebrate. It's at the start of a new year, spring is in view, and everything about the holiday is pink and about LOVE. This year we are planning to put on a Galenetine's Day Brunch for some of our special gal friends to share our appreciation and love for them! We have picked out some gifts we think are almost as awesome as your Valentine or Galentine this year. What are you planning for this Valentine's Day? Let us know in the comments!

California Winter: A Break in the Rain

Last weekend, there was finally a break in the rain, and we soaked up a bit of warm sunshine! To enjoy the nice weather, we decided to do what we like best, go WINE TASTING! We landed at Cima Collina in our home town of Carmel Valley, CA. A converted dairy barn, it's spacious private patio was perfect  to sip  tasty local wines while enjoying the sunshine. Two of our favorites were: the Howlin' Good Red (25% of sales goes to our local SPCA) and Palisades Pinot Noir. We spent an hour or so enjoying ourselves before heading home. 

Eve's purse is one of our favorite designs by Imoshion. We love their bags and have featured them several times: here, here, and here. All of their bags are amazing quality and are under $50!!!

The necklace Ivy is wearing is a custom design by Eve and hand made by Mignon & Mignon. It features the word bruadarach which means dreamer in Scottish Gaelic. 

Although we are supposed to have six more weeks of winter (thanks Punxsutawney Phil), we are getting excited for the new season and styles ahead. Be sure to follow us for bi-weekly updates!

Ivy loves faux fur coats and has been dying to get her hands on a mixed color coat like this one for over a year. Two years ago when the faux fur coats were making a comeback Ivy purchased an all black coat which she wears religiously in the winter. What makes fur coats so great is that they can dress up any outfit. On this occasion, Ivy is wearing this fun fur coat with a sweater and instantly her outfit is ultra chic yet comfy and wearable for everyday. Faux fur coats are the best of both worlds They look great and they keep you toasty warm...not to mention they are animal cruelty free!

Paris Street Style

Outfit Details:

Dress Stay Fierce Boutique | Booties Lucky Brand

There are few places better to look to for fashion inspiration then Paris. This summer we strolled the streets and gazed at the people walking past and all their unique styles. There is so much creative inspiration in Paris it's hard to leave and not be inspired. On this trip, we brought along a lot of cute summer dresses in hopes that the weather would be warm. Unfortunately, most days it was windy and rainy, but it's Paris so who can complain. Plus it made each minute of warm weather even sweeter. One evening when it was nice out we dressed up went out to dinner. Ivy wore this super adorable dress by Stay Fierce Boutique. This dress went well with the overcast sky and the Parisian architecture. It is also perfect for fall and Ivy has worn it numerous times. 

Stay Fierce Boutique has so many cute dresses, jumpsuits, rompers, and tops to choose from! We ended up ordering more for our fall wardrobe (we will post on these soon). We love their trendy clothes and how affordable they are. All of their clothing is under $35! 

Use our promo code IVYEVE15 at checkout for an additional 15% off your purchase!! That makes everything under $30!

Happy shopping!

Thinking Pink

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One in eight women in the Unite States is diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Virtually everyone has been affected by this disease. Our Grandmother and Aunt both had Breast Cancer and we eventually lost both of those amazing women to cancer. Recently, our doctor recommended we get tested for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations. These mutations are linked to a high risk of Breast, Ovarian, and other cancers. Since two women on our Dad's side of our family had gotten Breast Cancer, our Dad got tested first. He came out positive meaning we had a 50/50 chance of carrying the same gene mutations as well. We took the test as well and both came out positive for BRCA2. We have a 45% chance of having Breast Cancer and 17% chance of having Ovarian Cancer. Luckily, since testing positive, we are able to seek genetic counseling to understand our risk and what we can do to stay on top of it. Knowledge is power and we are glad we found out and we can support each other.

We recommend all women to visit BrightPink.org. This site is super informative, upbeat, and well...pink! You can find out your Breast and Ovarian cancer risk with their risk assessment here. You can also find info on how to donate, peer-to-peer counseling, and so much more.

This month, we won these adorable hand stamped pink ribbon necklaces from Mignon Mignon. We picked the rose gold to represent the pink ribbon for breast cancer. We love them so much and have been wearing them almost everyday since we received them! Mignon Mignon also does personalized initials, zodiac signs, coordinates and more! Did we mention that they are all super affordable? We think these would make perfect gifts for anyone and any occasion. We know where we're doing our christmas shopping this year!

Cozy Fall Favorites

Stores everywhere are stocking their shelves with cozy socks, warm scarves, winter boots, and cute hats to prepare us for the chilly autumn air. We decided to share with you a few of our favorite new finds.

We found these cute and cozy marled knit crew socks at Forever 21 for just $5!!! Naturally, we had to get them. You can never have too many socks. This pretty blanket scarf was a major steal we picked it up in the Target dollar spot for just $7. We ended up buying three different colors and buying some as little gifts for our friends. We seriously love them (not sold online-similar here). Hurry to your Target to get one...or two yourself! This fun ASOS fur bobble hat is trending right now and we think it's perfect for autumnal walks in the changing leaves. The last item is the ultra classic L.L. Bean Boot. We always loved the classic style of these boots and finally decided to test them out for ourselves. Ivy can't wait to wear these when we visit our family cabin in Montana this fall! They are cute and functional which we love!

A Trip to The Pumpkin Patch

Outfit Details:

Plaid Shirt Target | Jeans Uniqlo | Vest Le Tote | Chelsea Boots ASOS | Cascade Earrings Kate Spade | Clutch Imoshion

Visiting a pumpkin patch in October is one of our favorite things to do. One of our favorite places to visit is Earthbound Farm's Farm Stand which has pumpkins in every color, shape, and size imaginable! We like visiting this market and cafe all year round, but we love it during the fall when they fill the grounds with pretty pumpkins, corn stalks, and other autumnal decorations. Ivy wore a warm quilted vest, and plaid shirt for this trip. She paired it with this super cute clutch from one of our new favorite brands, Imoshion. We love this brand because we are big animal lovers and Imoshion only features vegan leather bags. Although its not real leather its almost identical in look and feel! We also love that all their bags have pretty fabric lining and tons of pockets to stash our lipsitck, glasses, and other goodies. Did we mention that all of their bags are less than $50?!?! Definitely keep this brand on your radar! Previously, we have shared some of their other great bags here, and here, and here

Moss Green Dress for Fall

Outfit Details:

Dress Noir Le Tote | Necklace Jessica Simpson (similar here)| Purse Jessica Simpson Le Tote | Sandals Sam & Libby

Here in California, the beginning of fall is still pretty warm. We can still wear dresses without jackets and heeled sandals instead of boots. Although we can't wait for cooler weather, we still enjoy that we can sit outside and have a glass of wine without turning on the outdoor heat lamps. Last weekend had perfect weather for wearing a knit dress and drinking wine at one of our favorite hotel bars at The La Playa Hotel. We sipped on crisp dry sauvignon blanc and watched the sun start to set.

Fall To Do List + Free Printable

Today is the first day of autumn! This year, we are more excited than ever for the drop in temperature and increase in all things pumpkin! 

We have put together a to do list for ourselves this year and want to share it with you all. Together we can check each one off!

Visit a pumpkin patch

This is a quintessential fall thing to do. I mean, how else are you going to get pumpkins for carving? We love visiting pumpkin patches because it is so much more festive then just picking some up at the grocery store. 

Bake an apple pie

Fall is apple picking season so baking an apple pie is basically a necessity. There is almost nothing better then a homemade apple pie (ok, champagne is pretty great too)!

Carve pumpkins

Carving pumpkins is not just for kids! We still love designing ours each year for our entryway for Halloween. Plus you can save all those seeds for roasting (yum!) or planting for the next year!

Take a walk to enjoy the changing leaves

The changing leaves are one of our favorite things about fall. In college, we both lived in places that had crazy beautiful trees changing colors in the fall. California is not the best place to see fall colors but it makes it all the more exciting when you do spot a tree or two with changing leaves! We like spending time each autumn to take a walk in the crisp air and gaze at all the colors around us. 

Plant spring bulbs

Ivy is a master gardener (its what she does for her day job) so she loves spring bulbs. She delights in the thought of fall and planting her spring blooming bulbs.

Buy a fall scented candle

Fall scented candles are the best candles. There are so many yummy scents to choose from... pumpkin pie, cranberry woods, autumn, sweater weather and so many more.

Take out your plaid shirts

We love plaid flannel shirts...or anything plaid! Here is one we are crushing on right now!

Test out a new pumpkin recipe

There are so many yummy pumpkin recipes we love making this time of year. We have already shared with you our Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe here, and will be sharing with you more later this fall. 

Knit a hat or scarf

Fall mornings and nights can be chilly so you need something to keep you toasty warm. Learn to knit with this kit or that kit from We Are Knitters!

Treat yourself to new fuzzy socks

There is nothing better then putting on new fuzzy warm socks when your feet are cold! Cozying up by a warm fire is optional, but totally recommended!

Make a list of things you are thankful for

Making a list of everything you are grateful for each year is a great thing to do. When you think about all the great things in your life, the not so awesome stuff always seems to disappear. 

Here is our little printable fall to-do list! (click here) Print it out and check things off throughout the season!

Farewell Summer

Outfit Details:

Dress Octavia Le Tote | Shoes Sam and Libby Target | Necklace Gorjana Le Tote | Purse Sondra Roberts Le Tote

It's starting to cool down here in Carmel Valley. Although "Fall" weather here is still about a month away, we are finally starting to get in the mood. Over the weekend we decided to grab a quick snack at one of our favorite spots in the Village, Corkscrew Cafe. We sipped on bubbly rosé and nibbled on roasted garlic and toasted bread. Ivy wore this lovely plum colored dress as she transitions her wardrobe from bright colors of summer to autumnal gem hues.

THEIT Colt Camera Bag & GIVEAWAY!

Ivy:

When I was little I fell in love with photography. I loved the way you could capture moments and frame feelings within an image forever. I have always loved art. I painted, and drew throughout my childhood and young adult years but that never gave me the same feeling photography gives me. When I take a great photo I get really excited and it inspires me to keep going. 

When I received my camera I also received a camera bag. The camera bag did its job saving it numerous times from breaking when I dropped it, but it was really unattractive. When I got older, I started leaving it behind and just carrying the camera in my hand or worse, putting it in the bag I was using. Eventually, I broke a lens doing this. I just hated how ugly and bulky the camera bag was while still not having enough room for my other essentials like my phone or wallet. I honestly stopped using my camera as often and just started using my iPhone more and more. But that was all about to change....

A few years ago when I was in college, Eve's friend got a new camera bag called THEIT Bossi Bag. I remember Eve telling me about it and I gushed over it on THEIT website, but being a poor college student I had no way to pay for it without feeling guilty. It wasn't until this spring that I remembered the camera bag I had desperately wanted. With our blog just starting up I decided I would definitely be using my DSLR camera often and that I really needed to have a camera bag I would use and love. So I took the plunge and bought THEIT Colt bag before our trip to Europe.  

As soon as I held  the bag in my hands I fell head over heels for it. I was really impressed with its packaging because there was so much protective tape around everything insuring it wouldn't get scratched or damaged I almost didn't want to take some of it off because I was afraid of scratching its perfect surfaces. Soon I would come to find that this bag is made of tough stuff. 

THEIT Colt bag is made of navy saffiano leather which is smooth and virtually scratch and waterproof. On our trip to France and England it rained everyday and many times I would end up soaking wet and the bag and all its contents would be dry as a bone! The bag has beautiful golden detailing which I love because I tend to go with gold jewelry over silver. One of the best things about this bag is the strap(s). The bag comes with TWO! The one I use most often is all leather, with adjustable straps and a neoprene shoulder pad for added comfort. The other also has the neoprene shoulder strap but has a gold chain. The gold chain instantly adds a lux look to the bag but still with the comfort from the shoulder pad. The bag also has a front pocket which I found very useful for storing my iPhone 6. 

The inside of the bag is lined with padded material and comes with 2 removable (padded) inserts to secure your camera gear so they don't rattle around. Although the bag itself it relatively small compared to any other camera bag around, it still fits a good amount of things inside it. On my trip I carried  chapstick, sunglasses, my favorite lipstick, a RxBar in case I got hungry, my iPhone, extra charger, bandaids, my wallet, and my camera all inside. Recently I even tested how many 187ml (mini) champagne bottles could fit in it: 4 comfortably. You never know when you may need a little bubbly!

This bag has honestly been one of my best investments in a long time and I would highly recommend it to all the women out there who love photography and style. This bag combines functionality with a timeless design that will last many years. 

Over the last few weeks Eve and I have been lucky enough to get in contact with Nicole the founder of THEIT brand. After talking to her about the bag and our travels she offered to do a $150 gift card giveaway for the readers of Hello Ivy & Eve! Their bags range from $159-$329 (so that means you can get a bag for as little as $9!!). We were so excited for this opportunity to sharing our love for this bag and THEIT company. We hope you think this bag is amazing too! To enter the giveaway simply follow the steps below:

  1. Subscribe to Hello Ivy & Eve

Red Jumpsuit for Summer

Outfit Details:

Jumpsuit 1 State Le Tote | Booties Steve Madden | Backpack Kenneth Cole Le Tote | Lipstick Maybelline in Always Blazing

Red has been a color Ivy loves to wear for a while, and yes part of it may have been because of Taylor Swifts album Red, but it also complements her fair skin. This jumpsuit is fun since it is a little different than any other jumpsuit we own, it is loose on the bottom and cropped above the ankle. The bodice is reminiscent of a tube top. Ivy paired it with this cute minimalist backpack and booties to not distract from the jumpsuit. Red is a perfect color for all seasons, but we think this look would be the perfect pop of color for a summer bbq in the park.

Bohemian Summer

Outfit Details:

Dress Revolve | Necklace Clement | Bracelet Lucky Brand Le Tote 

Its been two weeks since the Soberanes Big Sur fire broke out in our hometown, and the smoke has been intense. Although it creates a pretty orange glow to the light and sky, the air quality isn't healthy. We were planning for a weekend laying by the pool but with the air being so smokey we decided to do a little wine tasting (surprise surprise). Ivy wore this luxe bohemian dress that went well with the smokey hews in the valley. She paired her dress with some silver and turquoise jewelry to add to the casual boho look. The brand of this dress is "The Jetset Diaries" because the clothing line is suppose to be quintessential to any jet-setter's wardrobe...and we agree! The material is light, breathable and perfect for long summer days, yet chic enough to wear from day into night. What's even better is its on SALE right now! If you have Le Tote you can get it on sale here or head over to Revolve here to get your own!

Chambray for Summer!

Ivy's Outfit Details:

Dress Sanctuary | Duster Cardigan Three Dots | Purse Octavia & Co. | Booties (similar) | Necklace Octavia & Co.

 

Eve's Outfit Details:

Jumpsuit (similar here and here) | Bra Victoria's Secret | Sandals Sam Edelman | Clutch (similar) | Sunglasses Ray-Ban | Bracelet Tribe Alive

 Chambray fabric was made for summer. Its the perfect fabric to wear when you (like us) love denim but it's too hot outside to wear.  Whether you are looking for something to keep you cool, or need a light extra layer (we love layering chambray button ups with summery dresses), chambray will do the trick. Eve and I decided to go out for a casual Sunday glass of wine at Cowgirl Winery in Carmel Valley last weekend. The weather was nice but there was a bit of a breeze so I picked a long yet thin cardigan to go over my chambray dress. We love layering a long cardigan with a short and sassy dress. ;) This dress is perfect for a casual day look, and perfect as a beach coverup. Eve wore a chambray romper that opens in the back. She paired it with a fun strappy bra. This romper is perfect for a day to night look in the summer when the evenings get a little chilly. Dress it up with strappy heels for summer going out look.

Denim and Blush

Outfit Details:

Jacket Cupcakes and Cashmere Le Tote | Skirt KUT from the Kloth Le Tote | T-Shirt Target | Shoes Target | Bag Sondra Roberts Le Tote | Bracelet Clement Le Tote | Rings Forever 21 (similar)| Watch Timex

Ivy has been using Le Tote for almost 4 full months and is OBSESSED with it. There are so many trending items on the site we love and are excited to try. The best thing about Le Tote is you can try an item and send it back after wearing it once or as many times as you'd like in a month before deciding if you want to buy it (for a discounted Le Tote price) or send it back. This is perfect for women trying to find new pieces to add to their wardrobe and for those who just love having a change of clothes without the full cost. It's like having an awesome roommate who lets you borrow her clothes (plus you don't have to stress about getting it back quick and clean)! It only cost $59 a month for unlimited boxes. Each box comes with 3 garments and 2 accessories. Ivy usually goes through around 4 boxes a month so that equals 12 pieces of clothing and 8 accessories to test out a month. How cool is that?!?

From this week's box, Ivy picked a light weight jacket, and this trendy denim skirt (note: the skirt runs big so go a whole size smaller then normal). Ivy has a zip front suede skirt similar to this denim skirt seen here, but she really wanted to get her hands on a denim skirt without having to commit to it before trying it out. She paired these bold pieces with a simple loose boyfriend t-shirt to make it a more casual look.
