Feeling on top of the world at "Top of the Rock!" We took breaks inbetween the shows, meetings, and events to play tourist in the city! 

Top of the Rock, (on top of the Rockefeller center) was one of our favorite attractions! It's so high up, has the prettiest views, and you can see the Empire State Building perfectly from it! This is something we'll be going to every time we're in NYC from here on out! 

Some other touristy things we did and LOVED were the Brooklyn Bridge, Dumbo, Central Park, 9/11 Memorial, Empire State Building, Jimmy Fallon, Soho, the Highline, Hudson river, flatiron building, the Met, Wicked on Broadway, Yankee Stadium, and 5th Ave! We recommend visiting these places if you're headed to the city! 

We used City Pass to get discount attraction tickets and saved a couple hundred dollars! City Pass also got us through lines quickly on majority of the things we did! (Check out City Pass HERE!) We also found cheap broadway tickets on an app called Tickets Today, and cheap Yankees tickets as well on the Yankee Stadium app! We recommend these discount apps/tickets, they were AMAZING for us!  

Aside from Top of the Rock and the shows during fashion week, our favorite thing to do in the city was EAT! We pigged out HARD and are missing the food in the city already! Our favorite places to grab grub were Mighty Quins Bbq, STK, Black Tap Burgers & Shakes, By Chloe, The Smith, Shake Shack, and Laduree for sweets/dessert! (We suggest not going to chains while you're in the city! There's so much good food to try!.. We didn't even get half way through our list of places to eat!) 

For transportation we used Uber & the subway! Uber drivers are cheaper, nicer, and better drivers than Cabbies! (Taxi drivers.) The subway is 100% the way to travel though.. it's going to be the cheapest & quickest way to any destination! We used Google Maps to help us navigate through the city. Just hit "transit" or "subway" after you've entered in your destination!  

We stayed at Arlo Hotel (Nomad location) and it was incredible! Reasonably priced for the area we were in, (it's on 5th avenue and two blocks away from the Empire State Building) our room was clean and new compared to all the other hotels we looked at, it had incredible views, and the nicest staff! Seriously, we made friends with half the staff there! Arlo has another hotel located in Soho that looks extremely similar and is priced a bit better if you're not wanting to stay in midtown! 

Our photographer in NYC was non other than the incredible Ty French! Ty took our formals when we got married and we both LOVE his work! He shoots everything from commercial, to fashion, to weddings! He's also available for travel! We both love his style and recommend him as a photographer for ANYTHING! (Love you, Ty!)

Before we sign off, we just wanted to let you know you can see more of our trip & shop our outfits below! And if you're shopping the pink wrap top from Vici Collection, get it for 20% off with code BRIT20 at checkout! Hoping you all have the best day! xx

I'm currently on a little family staycation and I had to bring this outfit I got from RubyClaire! We're in St. George (aka 103 degree weather) and this top + this pair of jeans were light & thin enough to wear without making me break a sweat! (Not to mention, unbelievably cute!) 

You all know how much I love my "jeans and a tee shirt" outfits.. So this was a perfect spin! Add a little touch of feminine with those scallops, then brought it back to casual with the ripped denim & the flats

RubyClaire has A TON of darling summer selects on their website right now! (Seriously, I just ordered a handful of things from them!) And their new arrivals hit towards the end of the week (hint hint, nooww (; ) I highly recommend stopping by their shop!   

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend loves! xx

Thinking about starting a brunch club, who's in? Jk. But wouldn't that be fun?! 

Utah has A TON of brunch/breakfast spots that C & I LOVE!  

Our absolute favorite spot is the Foundry Grill at Sundance! It's an all you can eat brunch on the mountainside. The food & the views are both heavenly! The Foundry has everything you could possibly imagine, and is the most bang for your buck. 10/10 would recommend! 

La Caille is a close second! Located in Sandy, La Caille is something out of a fairy tale! It looks like a castle, has the most beautiful grounds, and the food is to die! Watch out for animals though! If you're not paying attention, they might steal your breakfast before you've had the chance to dig in! (This has definitely happened to me a few times haha!)  

Our other favorite brunch spots include Apex at Montage located in Deer Valley, The Grand Americas all you can eat brunch lacated in Salt Lake, (complete with live blue grass band) Market Street Grills brunch downtown SLC, Stein Eriksens all you can eat brunch in Park City, Gurus in Provo, Maglebys, (multiple locations) and of course Mickey Ds. Jk on the Mickey Ds! However, McDonalds breakfast really is bomb!

Many of these restaurants do a special Mothers Day brunch! I think this would be a lovely thing to do with your family on Mothers Day! (I think The Grand Americas might take the cake if it's a comp!) 

&& side note: If you're a guy & think brunching is for chicks, shut cho mouth. Every time we've eaten brunch at The Grand America, we see athletes. Jazz, U of U, visitors, its rad. If you won't go for the food, go as a fan!

Hey loves! 

I wanted to start something new where once a week I'll be sharing actual snippets of my daily life! I'm gonna call them "Photo Stories!" (Which is not clever in the slightest because they're literally just photos that I'm turning into a story.. hahaa!)

The reason I want to post Photo Stories is because it's more real. I don't have a full face of make up, a professional photographer, perfectly edited images, in the most prime location. This is going to be more every day life!.. Raw + real!

To start it off; this is currently my go to outfit. $30.00 band merch that I snagged from Brandy Melville, black distressed skinny jeans, black handbag, and nude heels or my adidas superstars. (P.s. these heels are my FAVORITE I've ever owned. I got them from M.Gemi! They have tons of unique styles, you need to check them out!)

I'm OBSESSED with food and have a list of 100 places I want to try in Utah! I finally got a second yesterday to run into "Taste," (A chocolate restaurant) and I'm so glad I did! I grabbed a dark chocolate bar made in house, and a milk chocolate bar from Australia! They were divine! (Chocolate bars pictured above.) You could say I'm in luhve with the Koko. (;  (Name that song. Jk don't.) 

While at Taste I was asking the chocolatier what his favorite chocolates are and what he would recommend. Long story short getting the chocolate bars was a bad idea because they do actual chocolate tastings. A. Chocolate. Tasting. And full on desserts!!!! I missed out BIG TIME! It's OK though. I guess this means I'll have to go again soon! <3 

A few Utah restaurants that are on my list to try are Forte, Chip cookie, Copper onion, Finca, Purple sage, and Handle! What are some on yours?! Seriously comment below! I would love to hear your favorite Utah restaurants and the ones you're dying to try!  

Hoping you all have the most wonderful day! xx

I don't EVER wear sequins, but I had to make an exception for this smiling number!  I got it from South Parade, they legit have the best graphic tops!  

Speaking of weekend, does anyone have fun plans?! <3 I have a few! (; Add me on Snapchat to follow along! Username: BritAndrus!

Zodiac Tee // Suede Jacket // Denim // Handbag // Suede Boots // Cuffs //  Earrings // Makeup: Temptu // Photog: InFrames Photography 

Hey Loves <3 

First off, I apologize for being MIA last week. Thank you all again for your love and support with the passing of my Dad. Your kindness has made a huge difference. <3 I seriously love you all. 

Next on the list, where my CAPRICORNS at?! <3 I just found my new favorite tee and I think everyone needs it! It's an embroidered zodiac sign tee, and tbh I kind of want one in every sign for each month.. (I'm a Capricorn though, so obviously I repped my sign first! + Capricorns always start off the year!) Not only is the "embroidered tee" currently trending, but so are zodiac/astrology signs! Everyone. Go get your sign on. You can find these babies at Project Social T! (And if you're digging the embroidered tee trend, go shop my favorites below! There are 3 that I ordered today, but I really want them all!) 

Lastly, I just struck gold in the biker jacket department! I'm always on the hunt for a good biker jacket that's high quality, looks amazing, and is affordable. As many of you know, I'm in love with All Saints jackets, but I can't justify splurging $800.00 on one thing.. (Plus Chase would literally kill me!) I found this suede biker from Vici Collection (Vici Dolls) and it's my new go to/current favorite jacket! It has everything I've been looking for in a jacket and it's price is on point! <3 It's definitely a steal! And GUESS WHAT?! It keeps getting better! Vici is offering all of my readers 20% OFF their purchase up until midnight! So take advantage Cinderella, & enter code BRIT20 at checkout! xx

Hope you all have a wonderful week! <3 Thanks for stopping by! xx

We are often asked how we style ourselves to "match" eachother! When people ask us this we honestly don't know how to answer!.. We don't plan to match on purpose. Our styles & tastes are one in the same! We did however figure out what it is that keeps our outfits aligned! 

We both prefer simple, neutral items. Like this look above! We both avoid color, bling, and anything with too much print or detail! (Of course this isn't always the case, but we'd say it is 90% of the time!) 

The main reason we stick to the simple neutrals is because it looks classy & it's easy to dress up or down! (The way you accessorize your neutral outfit makes a huge difference on the vibe your outfit gives off!) For example, adding a hat & sneakers will make the outfit look more casual, while adding heels and a vest will dress it up! 

There are a few places we like to get our neutral pieces from. We both like Nordstrom and J Crew! And on a VERY affordable end we love Pacsun for Chase & Bella Ella for Brit! (This is where our tops/many outfits on our blog are from!) If you need to revamp your closet (or want to redo your wardrobe) the best bang for your buck is Pacsun for the Fellas & Bella Ella for the ladies! xx

Hey loves! Since Christmas + New Years are right around the corner, I wanted to share my favorite hair products with you that help me save time, money, and make my hair look amazing! 

When my hair needs a boost, or if I'm in a hurry, I always grab my Fromm Beauty brushes! The hot paddle brush makes my hair dry faster, the thermal round brush gives my hair TONS of volume, and the glosser paddle brush adds crazy gorgeous shine to my locks!

These brushes not only save me styling time, but salon time too! (And money!) Since I've had these babies, I have skipped the salon a few months at a time! (Which I NEVER used to do! I'm usually in every month!) 

I'm beyond in love with these brushes.. I just think it's so cool that they have been created with serums, growth stimulants, and heat retaining technology. Tbh; every brush needs to be at this level, it simplifies life!  (Plus they're on sale over at Ulta so now we're all in love.) (; <3 

Shop my Fromm brushes & all my favorite hair products below! (Like my T3 wand! It takes me 2 minuets or less to wave my hair with this wand!) xx

Casual style on repeat for us Allens. <3 We love getting dressed up, & we loovvee being dressed down.  

C & I both have a few items that spice up our casual/comfy outfits and make us look "dressed up" enough to be out & about when in reality, we're just in our sweats! Chase often shops at G-Star to find comfy clothes that look more dressed up! G-Star has a great selection of sweatshirts, hoodies, & henleys that are soft, unique, & look amazing! As for me, my go to "spice it up" item is my denim jacket! I tie it at the waist, or put it on & cuff the sleeves!

Peplum Top / Skinny Jeans / Denim Jacket / Booties / Handbag / Cuff / Earrings / Photog: Hunter Fowler

I'm sucker for all things casual, simple, & neutral. So when my eyes met up with this loose fitting peplum top, I was sold! 

Peplums are one of my favorite styles! I LOVE how it shows off that feminine side! They're also a dressier top in my opinion! (Especially fitted peplums! I love the loose fit of this one though, it's so cozy & casual!) If you don't already own a peplum, this one's for you! The loose fit makes it more versatile and can be worn anywhere! To work, a night out, a cuddly weekend.. anything! <3 

I bought this one from my favorite shop as of late, Bella Ella! <3 Their clothes are so cute, and their price point is even cuter! You could say I'm addicted.. but hey, I think it's a good addiction! And no I'm not willing to quit it! xx

This Utah weather has C & I in shock this year! By this time we normally have a handful of snowy days, and right now we're hitting high 60's! SNOW FALL WHERE U @?! 

Dont get us wrong, we love this weather! But, considering we're crazy about the holidays, a little snow would be nice to get us fully in the ultimate holiday spirit!  

We've actually been trying to do a little Christmas-sy something every single day since November 1st! (In hopes that the holidays last longer and don't vanish in the blink of an eye!) Some have been bombs, (like trying to visit park city's now CLOSED ornament shop) but some have been amazing (like playing elves!) We wanted to share 5 things you can do this week to get into the Christmas spirit/jump start your holiday! <3 Enjoy peeps! 

1. Put your decorations up while listening to Christmas music or watching a Christmas movie! <3  (Hallmark has a handful of x-mas flicks playing all week long, & Netflix has a few good selects too!) 

2. Bake/cook/make a treat that you usually only do during the holidays! Trust me, when the holiday aroma is in your home, you'll be feeling all sorts of merry & bright!

3. Take a drive up the canyon and into the pines! The scenery is beautiful, and the drive is relaxing! (And if you drive up high enough, you just might hit snow!)  

4. If you're in Utah, make a Swig stop! WE LOVE swigs hot cocoa with a shot of coconut! (Or 2.. or 3....!)  

5. Take a moment to figure out what you can give before the new year hits. Not gifts, but what you yourself can actually give to the earth, the people in your lives, yourself, and above all God. Focus on these things as the season continues to approach <3 this will fill your heart with joy and connect you with the reason for this wonderful season! <3 xx Happy extremely early holidays from us to you!!!! 

P.s. If anyone has any favorite traditions, recipes, or ways to get into the Christmas spirit early leave a comment below! <3

I'm incredibly picky with my jeans, and this pair has me SWOONING! I bought these Grey Skinnies from Bella Ella & they just turned into my "go to" denim! I feel like they lift, shape, slim, stretch, and tighten in all of the right areas! They're beyond comfortable & flattering, they're perfection! (And if you ask Chase, they make the booty look all sorts of heart eye emojis!) Definitely both C & my new favorite! <3 

I also snagged this darling Military Jacket from Bella Ella! I've been on the search for one ever since NYFW where they were trending hard in the streets & the runway! I love how this one fits & has the faux leather sleeves! It definitely stands out amongst others! I find myself wearing it all the time, it goes with everything! The styling options with this baby are endless! 

As for C's jeans + jacket, he's eaqually obsessed! His style has been changing a little bit, and I'm not mad about it! He's been shopping for neutral, comfortable, simple items and obviously it's working for him! (Insert heart eye emojis times a million) Some of you may say this is "grungy" (like his babe-in motto jeans from Hudson) but I think it looks Kanye! (And I mean that in the best possibly way!) YEEZY STEEZY 5EVER!
