Grid Print + Cigarette Pants



I love dressing up. There are very few occasions that I dress up "smartly", mostly for dinner outings (or even going to the cinema for some reason!) I always try and smarten up a little, whether it be wearing a more structured look, putting on a pair of heels or wearing your favourite cigarette pants. I wore this outfit this week-end for an evening out with my grandparents! I bought this gorgeous top over Christmas, and it's a little too cold to wear it at the moment, but the right cardigan will help with that! I fell in love with the neckline and the sleeves, a perfect cut all round. Not tight under the arms and just the right length. I love the print too, a grid print is always a good idea! Paired with these lovely cigarette pants with an elastic waist, perfect for when you're going out for dinner and planning on eating a huge cheeseburger with a generous side of chips. Oh yeah. I wore a pair of tights underneath the trousers because of the freeezing weather! & I added a quirky touch with these awesome socks, obviously. I almost put my hair up in a low ponytail, but as usual chickened out. One of my goals this year is trying new, different & edgier styles with my hair. Having curly hair can be quite difficult to style as it goes frizzy so quickly! Any ideas on hairstyles? Holly is wearing these cigarette pants I bought a while back, yet I've only worn them a handful of times. I find them quite tricky to style, to find the right top or shirt to go with it. Today Holly is wearing this beautiful black shirt. The material is so gorgeous, a little sheer, and buttoned up or down the it always looks smart yet effortlessly chic. Hope you guys have a lovely week.

The Kimono



Hello everyone!

This is the first outfit post in a while, Summer & I have been really busy at UNI recently, with an annoying timetable which prevents us from taking pictures in the daylight, but finally we got around to it after a busy couple of weeks!
We wanted to wear similar looks for today's post, and share with you guys our kimonos, both from Zara: this is what I would usually wear for evenings out, and Summer's outfit is probably more suited for a daytime look. I bought mine last year before going to Chicago (& it will always be my favorite piece because I wore it when I met one of my fave actors aaaargh). I love kimonos because they're the center piece of an outfit, it's so easy to throw it over some more plain and simple items, it's the perfect thing to brighten up your look, especially in the winter.

Dream Diary

All images found on Pinterest

Pisces are often associated with dreams and spirituality, people who spend their time drifting between reality and fiction. 


"Pisces alternate between reality and non-reality in keeping with their introspective natures; their voyage between consciousness and an unconscious dream state says much about their intuitive, almost psychic natures. For this reason, Pisces can be hard to pin down, prompting some to call them the chameleons of the zodiac. The Fish are happy to be considered hazy, since there's a certain sense of safety in that self-proclaimed netherworld. That said, they won't stay away for long, since one of their primary goals is to help others. Pisces are compassionate, charitable and will quickly put the needs of others ahead of their own.

The Winds Of Winter



Hello everyone!

This is our first outfit post of 2015! We hit the sales this week, and once again Zara did not let us down. Everything that I had tried on a few weeks earlier were on sale! It's probably one of the few shops that actually make an effort for the sales, as so many seem to just put all the unwanted leftover clothes on sale. Needless to say I have spent pretty much all of my Christmas money! I finally found a wood green winter coat! When we took these pictures, I kind of felt like Peggy Carter. (Has anyone watched Agent Carter yet? It's reallyyy good.) It's quite sophisticated and smart, the only thing that I have to get used to is the little coat buckle thingy, but I love the color so much. Holly bought this amazing winter coat in England over Christmas, and it's like a quilt/blanket cover. It is so, SO warm and comfortable, which is what a winter coat is all about! These are our last few days of holidays before returning to uni next week, so we are making the most of it by sleeping, working on the blog, and binge watching tv shows.

Details // rings



I love the idea of owning a piece of jewelry that you rarely take off, and my two silver rings are constantly with me. I have been wearing them for at least two years now. It's a habit of mine to check they are still there, it's become something that I associate with my self, my identity. It's strange how something like a piece of jewelry can eventually become something symbolic.
I bought these gorgeous rings from H&M over Christmas, they are so beautiful and delicate, adding a nice little touch to a look! I didn't own any golden rings before hand, as I usually only wear sterling silver, and I think we've all experienced a time where we buy some cheap jewelry only to have it tarnish a few days later. Apparently the colour loss can be prevented by sealing the jewelry in small plastic bags or somewhere with little oxygen!

Looking back at these pictures,  they have a with/coven feel to them ahaa. This is Holly's notebook that my grandparents gave us, I also have one, and they are so pretty! The two small mirrors are Christmas presents from Amsterdam by our parents, I love them so much, the design is sleek and elegant and the drawing on the front is gorgeous!   Summer x

2015!



The start of a new year. I have many things I would like to tick off my to-do list, yet I don't have anything set in stone this year! My hope is that I will be able to go on holiday this summer, perhaps exploring the coast of Italy, discovering the city of Amsterdam or sitting on a beach in Spain. Our trip to Chicago in October was truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life, and it fueled my desire to travel even more, as I believe that travel is the most enriching thing there is! There are so many books I want to read this year, so many films & tv shows that I can't wait to see, and of course I want to be more creative & artistic.

Top looks of 2014!



Hello everyone!

2015 is almost here, so it's time to look back and reflect on the past 12 months! A lot has happened this past year, good and bad, but I'm so happy with what I've achieved. I stuck to my new year resolutions, staying fit & healthy, completing my first year at university studying film & theater, and of course updating the blog as often as Holly & I can!
