We don't know about y'all, but we've been experiencing some crazy weather lately!  It's in the 30s one day and the 70s the next so we're keeping alllllll our clothes out this year, zero rotation. The quick changes in the weather make it hard to plan outfits so we've been leaning towards longer sleeves + pencil skirts.  We picked a couple of new items out from Unique Vintage to help us deal with this weird weather and we especially love these Wrap Top, especially for work. Thank god for versatility.

When we wear pencil skirts + wiggle dresses, we regularly get questions about (oddly enough) our undergarments and how we have such smooth lines.  Some people may be a little modest or embarrassed talking about their undergarments, but I (Katie) have NO shame in admitting that hip shapewear is a must for me if I'm going to wear tight clothes.  Shapewear helps create a smooth line, and if your hips force you to have to size up (story of my life) shapewear can take off an inch or two so you can squeeze into tight clothing.  Even if you don't have any 'big hip issues' it's great to have undergarments for all occasions and to of avoid panty lines.  My go-to is this Spanx Shapewear and Amanda's is these Rago Shapewear Shorts which even have a little boning in them.

Here are some of our favorite shapewear pieces:
