Between Winter Solstice at the beginning of the week, and Christmas at the end, it has been a week busting with holiday cheer for both Em & S! We do have a last minute suggestion for you on what to wear for the holidays to both look nice, and feel comfortable and cozy while gathering with your loved ones. A red sweater dress. Wear it over tights or leggings, with a pointed toe flat and pearls for a touch of elegance. Of course add a red lipstick for a touch of holiday cheer! My latest favorite? Butter London in Come to Bed Red. Its wonderful, and over all very long wearing!

If you have been following fashion trends at all in 2015 you know that shapeless, roomy, and baggie are in. And one of those trends that we love is the cape! So here is S in a startling red cape, something that picks up the fall colors, can transcend into December and make the leap through January and February. We love the idea of the cape!
What do you think of the cape trends?

If you follow our blog, you know Em is our resident photographer. That’s why, more often then not, you see photos of S taken by Em. Every year, typically in the fall, Em’s family get’s together and takes some family photos! So here are some tips and tricks from Em on how to get a great family photo!
First: Pick a color scheme. It’s not a happy accident that we somewhat coordinate in our photos! I know it may sound silly, you don’t have to all dress alike, but having a pallet really makes your photos go the extra mile! This year, since plaid is in and our location was fall foliage, we went with Red, Navy, Plaid, and cream. If your family is anything like mine – you need to pick something easy for the men. Jeans and plaid shirts were something that all our husbands already had!
Two: Pick a great location! Doing something interesting with the photo to catch your eye always makes a better photograph! In this photo we are right justified and there is emphasis payed to the line of the railroad track. Setting the boca on your camera to give a softness to the background also allows the people in the photo to take precedence over a somewhat busy background.
Three: Photography with kids can always be a little challenging! This little lady was in a pretty good mood while we did our photoshoot, but it’s really important to take a lot of pictures and engage the child. Ask them questions, get them excited. Sometimes just telling them to smile rewards you with the photo below!
They aren’t little models – so try to have fun with them. Engage them, make the exercise fun!
Then you end up with fun photos like this sweet one. The sun rises and sets on her Pawpaw, and she’s the apple of his eye. These two are inseparable!
If you want to get creative, take your camera to a different level. So many people get caught up taking pictures from standing height. But some of the best shots might come from laying down or climbing up! So explore new heights!
Don’t be afraid to use the sun! Sometimes taking pictures with the sun streaming through make the most beautiful and whispy photos! Don’t be afraid to try something new! Natural sunlight is your friend, learn how to use it to your advantage!
Have fun! Because a photo shoot is just like every other part of your life, it’s about capturing the memories! We will never be in this same time, or this same age. A photo should express the real personality behind the subjects. Leave staging to someone else!
And don’t forget your fur-babies. I have yet to master the art of getting them to both look at the camera at the same time. I call this a win because they are both facing forward.
Until next time! Enjoy this little slice of heaven that I call my family!

Happy Monday! So you’ve probably noticed that denim on denim is popular this season. With temperatures dropping to the 30’s at night and the high only getting into the 50’s this week, we have officially welcomed fall. The leaves are changing, the sweaters are coming out, and fair season has begun. So here’s an idea of how to wear jean on jean, especially if you need an outfit idea to wear to the fair!
And we always love a great shoe, preferably with a heel. So we added a pair of sling back mules to this outfit to give a little height and comfort while out and about. Chunky shoes and mules are in, so pull out those closed toe shoes, fall is upon us!
And, you’ll notice, the ever present bandana is back in this post as well. It’s something to add a little color, its a popular trend that absolutely everyone can wear. So get a little crazy, find a bandana in a color you love, and jazz up your outfit with a little pop of color!
Until next week, xoxo Em & S

Going out for groceries? Look your best! Here is our take on 2015 street style complete with booties, bandana, and ripped jeans. We are easing into fall here in Maine, getting ready for some cooler temperatures to come our way. Out are the shorts and the short skirts, and in are the T’s and jeans!
Pair your long shirt or long vest with a classy bandana (popular trend for 2015). Also popular right now is the split side tee. S bought this one on Amazon, sometimes it’s great to get something popular for a great deal! Click HERE for the link if you just have to have one like hers!
S is shown wearing her bandana tied to her arm, but it’s also popular around your wrist, your hair, around your waist, or around your neck! So break out that bandana and accessorize! And because S loves a good bargain, she just bought a pair of black jeans and DIY’ed them to fit into the current trend for ripped knees!
And it’s fall, so pull out those booties! Popular again this fall are ankle booties, and well, we here at Stylish_Two can’t just go with plain booties! We love this look with the faux snakeskin pattern paired with the stripes and a solid colored black jean.
So the next time you think about just popping out for groceries or errands in your “house clothes” throw on some red lipstick (S is pictured wearing Certainly Red, by Revlon), change out your shoes for a snappy pair of booties, tie on your bandana, and show everyone that is pays to look your best!

Memorial Day. The unofficial start to summer, and of course an amazing long weekend. I would be lying if I didn’t admit that on Friday, I sat in the anesthesia office happy I had Monday off, and thinking about my weekend plans. I did have to take a moment this weekend though to recognize what this day was really about–recognizing people who lost their lives in an effort to serve others. It is an American holiday, and I will be the first to admit that politics are messy, and I do not agree with everything my homeland does. At the end of the day though, there are still people who have made it possible for me to have the life I have today, and I respect that. No matter where you are from, or what you believe, someone fought a battle for you. So today for me is about that.
E and I explored ventured down to Veteran’s Memorial Park, which isn’t too far from us, on a gloriously beautiful Maine weekend, which is a beautiful small park on a river.
