Elsie Larson of A Beautiful MessIt’s no secret that my favorite shoe brand is Swedish Hasbeens. I mean, I’ve worn them in almost every photo for five years straight. My closet looks like an advertisement for them. Haha! You could say I’m obsessed & a shameless fangirl. So anyway—enough gushing. They recently sent me a pair of their new JEANS (yeah—they’re called HasJEANS—haha), and I LOVE THEM.

Jean shopping really is the worst. So much worse than swimsuit shopping or even bra shopping, but lately I kind of struck gold because of these flares and also some new Madewell jeans. Now I don’t have to buy new jeans for like 5 years—YAY!

Anyway—enough about jeans, let’s talk about WEST WORLD. Did you guys watch? Are you as obsessed as I am?

I have spent way too much time this week fantasizing about making West World robot versions of both my dogs so they can live forever. #goals

And on that note, I’m sending it over to Emma! Take it away, lil sis!

Emma Chapman All black everything Black and white Leopard jacketYep, I got completely obsessed with West World too. At first, I wasn’t watching it. Trey got into it, but I was trying not to get into any more TV shows because I have this quilt I’ve been trying to finish all year (I’m slow, I know), and I wanted to focus on that in the evenings when we were home. It’s my first quilt, and it was actually my 2016 New Year’s resolution. So I need to finish it soon!

But then Trey got his wisdom teeth out, and while he was recovering, I started watching it with him, and then I couldn’t stop! It was inevitable I guess. 🙂

Also, speaking of jean/bra shopping. I recently tried some new bras from ThirdLove, and I think they may be the best bras I’ve ever had. Not to get too TMI on you, but one thing I love is that they offer half cup sizes. Which really, that makes so much sense! Sort of like half size shoes. (I tend to wear 7 1/2 in US shoes sizes, and 7 are sometimes too small and 8 are sometimes too big.) Anyway, check them out if you’ve ever had a similar issue. Not sponsored, I just tried them after hearing about them and really love them now. 🙂

  • I so love the pants! They are adorable! So fab! The leopard coat is lovely as well! You two really look great! You rock, guys!

  • I love both looks! My favorite is the pants from the first outfit <3 Looks like it fits perfectly 🙂
    Happy holidays,

  • Your hair is amazing!! These outfits are also great. Wonderful post!!

  • I used to hate jean shopping too until I found some tried and true brands – Madewell being one of them. Their jeans are just SO GOOD. I also shared a similar “black and blue” look with some vintage Levis if you’d like to take a look. 🙂 And if you decide you need any more jeans, I also picked up a new pair of high waist Levis, and they fit LIKE A GLOVE. <3

    P.S. West World is on my (very, very, very) long list of shows to watch. TOO MUCH TV. One of these days..

  • Are you kidding…$170.00 for a pair of pants!?!?! That’s food for the fam for the week!

  • Love the “MOM” jeans! I’ve been looking for a pair and all I can find are low or medium rise, such an uncomfortable fit!

  • Love the high-waisted jeans and the leopard coat! Aaaaand just got into Stranger Things. Please bring season 2 ASAP!

    xo, Heather

  • I LOVE mysteries or true crime type stuff. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Actually, we’re getting quite a few good recommendations here… now I can’t wait for a snow day. 😉


  • I just finished Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. The entire series is on Netflix and it’s perfectly binge-able. The bad part is that it’s only three seasons and they aren’t making anymore, so when it’s over, that’s it. And the series finale will leave you slightly annoyed – it’s closure, but not, if you know what I mean.

  • I would definitely recommend checking out Black Mirror on netflix if you havent! I am partial to the episodes that BBC did but netflix also did an excellent job with their episodes!!! I actually just watched the first epsidose of Westworld last night and can’t wait to watch more!! I have also been hearing excellent things about This Is Us so thats next on my list… after westworld of course!

  • Love the t-shirt, Emma! Cracks me up!
    My tv obsession is Supernatural. I cannot get enough of those Winchester boys!

  • Both are cute!! Emma that coat is amazing on you. We haven’t gotten into westworld yet but it is on our list!! I was obsessed with full house when I was younger and actually I still am…full house trivia, I would dominate. So naturally, I have been binging on the second season of Fuller House this past week or so! So good (in a cheesy nostalgia kind of way 🙂
