Summer Basics

A very broad color palette for Emily and I today: white, grey, and black! Sorry we’re not sorry. We’re still reveling in the last of these Summer days, and we’re sticking to cotton basics. Thank you Brandy Melville for keeping us so comfortable. At first I was self-conscious about wearing these high-cut denim shorts on the streets, but then I remembered the Polar Vortex……. that suddenly made it okay for me to be cheeky as hell when I wanna be. Also, Emily’s skirt blew up in the middle of Avenue B, so I didn’t feel as skanky.

East Village Errands

Abigail – Scarf, Ami Goodheart. Dress, Salvage. Shoes, Vans. Bag, Ballista. Sunnies, Ray Bans
Emily – Top, LF stores. Skirt, Reformation. Necklace, Zara. Shoes, Senso. Sunnies, Dior.  
Running errands in nearly 90 degree weather in the East Village looks a little something like this for us. Wearing as little as possible, barely there tops, rocker chic minis, and well skirts and a slight breeze… works wonders, but let’s just say everyone in the vicinity got quite the show.

Village Street Style

Day to day for WanderLust is generally a lot of black, but Spring has brought a whole new side of us out… navy blue! (We’ve actually been adding quite a bit of color to our wardrobe, which you can see more of on our Instagram.) 
However, to answer your questions of what we wear when we’re trolling the East Village, or out and about running errands? This look is along those lines. We trade in our mega heels for some comfortable flats, giant sunglasses, and cut it down to like 2lbs of metal instead of the usual 30lbs. Here it is- WanderLust Girls comfortable casual stylings! What do you guys think?

Day 5 NYFW outfits

(On Emily – Dress, Foley + Corinna. Belt, French Connection. Shoes, Topshop. Bag, Zac Posen.)

(On Abigail – Dress, Moschino. Clutch, Ballista. Shoes, Jeffrey Campbell.) 

Swans? Green?? What is happening?! It’s highly possible we were not mentally stable by day five, regardless, we went for it. Switching it up, you know, freak people out by not wearing the usual garb. Bold move WanderLust, bold move.

Day 3 NYFW outfits


(On Emily – Sweater and Skirt, AllSaints. Shoes, SixtySeven. Bag, Zac Posen.)

(On Abigail – Dress, Forever 21. Belt, Aldo. Shoes, Jeffrey Campbell. Clutch, Ballista.) 

By day three we were torn. Too excited about Fall, and still soaking up the last bits of Summer. As a compromise, Emily went Fall inspired, and Abigail went Spring styled. 
Didn’t we warn you there would be more color?? Even all white accessories for Abigail. Emily stuck to her roots with a full on AllSaints look. But, that is a sequined skirt, and a LIGHT gray sweater… so that’s a big step. 
Regardless, day three kicked our asses, but we kept truckin’. More outfits to come ;)

Day 1 NYFW outfits

Last photo by Stephen Wilson.

(On Emily – Dress, Reformation. Sunglasses, Bottega Veneta. Shoes, Sam Edelman. Bag, Zac Posen.)

How quickly NYFW came and left :( Now that we’ve posted all our show coverage, here are our outfits from each day!

We wandered The High Line as we took a mini break in between shows. Emily’s Reformation obsession, as you will continue to see, begins on day one. Abigail’s Foley + Corinna dress was the perfect combination of girly and goth… could not NOT be further from our style. (Double negatives are the best!) Lightweight sheer looks for day one! Stay tuned, more outfits to come!

P.S. Keep an eye out for more Ballista bags… we hear they’re gonna be huge ;)
