Chicago in 35mm film!

Hello everyone!

We're finally home for the week-end! It's amazing whenever I come back to the countryside I rediscover all the different foods I use to eat, as my current student diet is toast, muesli with yogurt and fajita's. This won't last much longer as we only have a week or so of lessons left this semester! (& we're currently saving up for Christmas!)

I can't believe this time last month, I was walking around Chicago. I will always remember walking around the city at dusk, the city lights illuminating the night sky, and of course listening to everyone's american accent! Standing at the top of the John Hancock tower was an experience I will never forget. There's something quite magical about gazing at the city from above, every single car reduced to the size of an ant. I spent ages just following the line of traffic going through the city, the planes lining up in the sky getting ready to land... Gosh I miss it so much. (& of course meeting the cast of Supernatural. I'm still not over it!) This trip put so many things into perspective. We're so lucky we live in a world that is so connected, where you can just buy a plane ticket one day & be on the other side of the planet on another. I made me realize how silly it was to constantly worry about university and silly little things in life. Life is so much more than that. At the moment I just want to finish my licence degree at university & then hopefully take a gap year travelling. I'll stop here before I get too deep and philosophical! Here are the film pictures we took on our canon A1 during our Chicago trip. A couple are a little out of focus due to my excitement and eagerness to capture every single moment! Enjoy :)

Snug week-ends

The best way to spend a chilly week-end, in my opinion, is snuggled up in your comfy pj's & slippers, sipping a cup of tea and watching your fave TV shows. This W-E we did make more of an effort that we usually do (swapping pj's for these perfect laid-back outfits). I'm so in love with these joggers, they are perfect for chilling in at home or for travel, and they're still super stylish, and SO COMFY. The jumpers and the joggers are all from H&M, the blue duster coat from ASOS, and the scarf is from Zara. We took some of these photos in the park by our flat, the rest we took inside, it's always difficult shooting inside because despite the good lighting in our flat, the walls are a weird beigey-yellow tone, and I swear nothing is actually symmetrical, even my door is wonky? Not the best setting for photos.
Summer & I don't actually dress up that often, and we're quite introvert so we don't go out much on week-ends, we're quite happy being home. We really wanted to show some laid-back outfits in this post, (basically our uni look when we're so tired and couldn't care less about what we look like, not very fashion blogger, but after 5 hours sleep you just grab what's closest). 
We're currently getting into the Christmas spirit- putting decorations up in our flat! Christmas is our favourite time of year, we're spending it in the UK this year so we're so excited about it! I have quite a different xmas post coming up soon. I can't wait for the whole christmas week, to get dressed up and buy new outfits! & hopefully even a new camera, time to step up our game! Ahh. Christmas.
Hope you all have a lovely week-end :)

The Road So Far

Hello everyone!

We haven't been posting much lately due to university work, but we are currently on a 4 day week-end so we're making the most of our time off! We went out to shoot these photos by our street, the road around the corner. It was surprisingly warm despite being in November : Summer is wearing these black cigarette trousers from H&M, with this basic long-sleeved shirt from Mango. We don't usually wear those type of pants, but I just thought these ones were really cool, and they look so good with chunky jumpers! You've probably noticed that we don't wear figure-fitting tops very often, this jumper however is just the perfect fit: it isn't tight under the arms or across the neck. Loveee it. I decided to wear this black blouse from Mango paired with this new quilted skirt from H&M. What I like about this skirt is that it's really well fitted, and I love the texture of it. Since it was warm out I decided to wear my lighter suede jacket from Mango, one of my all time favourite buys, it's seriously so nice! Summer wore this longline coat I bought from Next a couple of years back. Both bags are from Zara!

We both ended up wearing similar outfits, we do it quite often! We meet in the living room ready to go out to discover we're nearly wearing the same thing, a twin thing right? 
Today has been the highlight of our week, we saw Mockingjay tonight and we're both freaking out. We're huge fans of the books, and the films are incredibly well done, I'm happy with it guys. Go see it if you can!! 
Hope you all have a lovely week-end!
