During the last couple of years we’ve been seeing overalls everywhere. It started as a shy trend that only fashion victims would wear without looking like toddlers. We saw it in action during Paris Fashion Week 2013 for the first time (look at the fourth picture in this post) but now we can see beautiful, flattering overalls basically in every high street store. So the trend, once again, has become popular among all of us and no Spring/Summer wardrobe seems to be completed without an overall. That’s why we have put together some ideas, so that you can choose the perfect overall for you. Continue reading
Good morning! The sun shines, the temperatures are warm and right now that’s all we need to be happy. That, and a fabulous Spring wardrobe to go with it. Of course, by fabulous we mean monochrome, basic and wearable. No flower prints, no pastels, no 70’s looks for us. That’s why we wanted to share with you the new pieces that AYR has added to its collection. AYR is one of those brands that we absolutely love. Its motto is: good design is always in season. And that’s pretty much what we want to have in our closets. Good quality pieces and edited essentials that last. Continue reading
2 degrees this morning. I mean… 2 degrees! We just can’t stand it anymore. We want sun and over 20 degrees temperatures. Is that too much to ask? Since we moved to Germany I think we have been able to wear sandals twice. Twice in four years! Obviously, that doesn’t stop us from browsing our favourite websites and shops in search for the perfect pair. Is there anything happier than two feet with bright toenails inside a pretty pair of sandals? No, there isn’t.
We love mixing bright nail polishes with neutral leather sandals and, in order to rock that look, we need this minimalistic but really nice pair of sandals by Whistles. Don’t you love them? We think they can look perfect with just about any outfit. You can dress them up with a nice little black dress or you can simple wear them with shorts (we are talking denim here, of course) and a tee.
Well, we will be visiting London soon so a stop in a Whistles branch is guaranteed… Even though we won’t be able to wear them frequently, at least we will be prepared for Summer (last year was a Friday, sigh!).
When we like something we stick with it. Fashionwise that can look quite boring, but we like to think that we are consistent and in tune with our lifestyle. That’s why our favorite brands appear repeatedly on this blog. We are loyal. But how not to when they show us again and again exactly what we want to wear? They seem to get us. We want wearable, discreet, polished but casual and almost monochrome. Sézane has recently presented their Spring collection and we’ve fallen for their delicate shirts, clean lines and amazing sandals. We even love a pair of golden shorts, that even if quite daring, seem like a posible statement for warmer nights. Continue reading
As much as we love casual clothing, sometimes we need to dress up a little bit to attend work related meetings and events. We are lucky enough to work in creative atmospheres where the strict corporate look is not necessary. However, being lazy dressers ourselves is quite easy to end up wearing jeans, flats and sweaters most of the time (guilty as charged). But Spring is coming and we are
determined willing to make an effort. Better temperatures always cheer us up and make us want to step up our game, even at the office. But what to wear? We are in our 30s so we have to look the part… Well, take a look at these Gerard Darel proposals. We think they are right choice for a working woman in her 30s. Continue reading
While preparing this post I’ve found out that I have quite a collection of sneakers. Browsing our Instagram feed I’ve found my custom made Stan Smith, my basic black Nike , my Converse (of course), my Supergas, my New Balance , my polka dot Nike Airmax and my neon Adidas (that I only wear to the gym). Apparently I love sneakers. I never really was a sneaker person but I guess living in Germany has made my style more casual. I’ve always loved flats and I always will but I wasn’t aware of this little addiction of mine. Anyway, I have my reasons: you can wear them with just about everything and by doing so you’ll add an immediate cool factor to your look. I just want to buy more and more pairs. Oh my.
My last target are the classic Adidas Gazelle. They remind my of my first year at Uni, when I wanted to be a skater girl and rock a sporty but tortured look. If you weren’t a teenager during the late 90’s you will not understand but, believe me, Gazelles were the coolest shoes you could wear. And now, here they are again. You can spot them in almost every fashion website. I’m not going to resist this new “it shoe” trend. Oh no. The black version is my favorite, but I’ve already have my black Nikes, which make me feel like a Copenhagen girl. The light grey pair is beautiful but super high maintenance. The navy Gazelles could be perfect for Summer but I’m tempted to create my own custom made pair in red (by the way, the customize section of Adidas website is dangerous!). They could be a great pop of coulour in my otherwise black / grey/ navy outfits. And I don’t have any red sneakers in my collection. And they are pretty. And comfortable. And I like them. And I want them. Ok, now I need them.
It’s been a while since we felt the urge to buy something. Of course we feel really tempted by the Spring Summer collections that are starting to appear in our inbox (exhibit A, B & C) but we haven’t felt that urge, that itchy feeling in our wallets for a while. Then, we found out about the bag that Berta Bernad has designed for Bucarelli and we were sold.
We first read about this brand in Cristina’s blog. She used to wear a few Olive Clothing pieces in rotation and we love her style. Then we discovered the brand’s Instagram and we were sold. We basically love every outfit they post. Their simplicity is refreshing and they feature stripes in almost all of the looks. We know that this season high street brands are looking back to the 70’s for inspiration but that’s not our cup of tea. We want to stick to the simple classics that we love and Olive Clothing has some very nice pieces to offer. And most of them are navy. What’s not to love? Continue reading
