For this month’s Sister Style profile we decided to feature two fashionable babes we are totally obsessed with right now. You guys might recognize these two from the best place in town to satisfy your boozey, coffee cravings, The Mudlounge – Coffee and Cocktails. That’s right. Those two well-dressed hotties with awesome hair are zipping by your table and grabbing you the closest thing to heaven, the signature Irish Cognitive, duh.
Alli & Kayla are two sisters we can’t get enough of.
These two are an absolute blast to work with. They helped us pull nearly every piece of prop furniture outside and on to their back patio where we filled it with balloons, vintage pieces from Ali’s closet and thrift store finds we just couldn’t resist. The tea set we served mimosas in was her grandmothers!
We’ve been watching these two for a while now. They each have a very different and signature style that really accentuates their personalities and attributes. Alli describes her style as “Audrey Hepburn meets Footloose meets Hip Hop meet Grandma meet Stepford Wives”.
We love the way she pairs leather boots with vintage pastel nightgown and patterned robe. It makes for a perfectly messy look that just looks effortless.
“My Style is a mix of hippy bohemian, classy, eloquent, mixed with lace and psychedelic prints. My main fashion icons are Gigi Hadid, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I love Lauren Conrad’s clothing line, Jessica Simpson’s Line, and Vanessa Bruno’s clothing line.”
Look at that hair! Look at that face! We’re feeling some total Rebecca Romijn vibes over here.
Putting together looks for these two was so much fun. They each had tons of options picked out and matched with accessories when we got there. Alli graduated from Missouri State with a degree in Fashion Merchandising so she sort of rocks at these things. She also makes a lot of her own clothing out of re-purposed vintage materials. You can check out her dresses at Cricket in the House or at her booth at Mike’s Unique called the Polyester Pocket!
Part of what makes these two so awesome is that they’re never afraid to be silly.

“Kind of embarrassing but me and Kayla were so little that we would both get into a pair of our mom’s sweat pants and try to walk. I almost broke my back once and one or both of us peed once!”
Kayla is currently studying architecture at Drury University and working as an intern for a local architecture firm. Get it girl.
How jealous are we of the hair on these two? Very.
Alli & Kayla have got a serious bond and made the entire shoot feel like a party! These are two of the smartest, strongest, kindest women we know with some serious street style not be rivaled. We hope you love this shoot as much as we did. We’ll see you soon babes!
