Nothing gets us more excited for spring than shopping, especially when it comes to fashion. It’s a perfect time to give our winter wardrobe the refresh it needs. Now that Spring’s most notable trends are dropping into stores, figuring out what we like can get overwhelmingly fast… and break the bank.
Milkmaid tops are back! You know, those blouses with details like square neckline, cute buttons and puffy sleeves. Milkmaid tops began popping up on our fashion radar, last summer, thanks to the small French family-run label MaisonCléo. No doubt you’ve seen their blouses on Instagram; Emily Ratajkowski, Leandra Medine are some of the ‘it’ girls that adore this brand.
Are you still associating pearls with being “old fashioned”? Think again! Coco Chanel once said, ” A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls”, and we couldn’t agree more. Pearls have been a jewelry staple for centuries, and beloved by so many famous ladies, like Cleopatra, Princess Diana, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Audrey Hepburn and many more.
Last year we started the practice of “smart shopping”. Basically, we buy only what we need and try to resist the lure of sales and cluttering up our closet. And we have to say that we are doing great! To stop us from barging in Mango and buying out the whole store, we make a list of things we need first.
If you’re a fan of minimal style like us two, then you already know that exaggerating with accessories is not our cup of tea, but the ones we do pick out really round up our whole combination.
We’re less than two weeks away from the biggest party of the year. Are you aware of this? How quickly times go by these days, right? Warp speed, for sure. New Year’s Eve is probably the only time of the year when we can all step out of our comfort zone and go all out. Sequins, feathers, lace…. the more the better!
Blazers are taking over again. And it might seem silly to be surprised. I mean, there wasn’t a day that we didn’t see someone wearing this clothing piece. Few decades ago, blazers were a symbol of female empowerment and freedom. From the Suffragette suit in 1910 as a direct response to the silly hobble skirt (long skirts that were narrow at the hem to significantly impede the wearer’s stride) to the first female suit – trimmed jacket with a matching ankle-length skirt, designed by Coco Chanel…
We don’t need to explain what Stranger Things is, right? Like most of the world, we are HUGE fans. Let’s just say that we binge-watched season one and two in just three days! Crazy, right? But we are sure that we are not the only ones. Stranger Things has really became a cultural obsession. It’s the perfect combination of amazing characters, science fiction, fun 80’s and of course, fashion.
Do you get that feeling when you are too cold in a shirt, but when wearing a pullover you get unbearably hot? This happens to us a lot during the late autumn months. And because of that we love cardigans, it’s so much easier to control your temperature with them. If you’re getting too hot, just unbutton it and problem is solved.
We don’t know about you, but in our thoughts we are already in autumn. We have to admit that we will miss summer, but we don’t have to sad so much because the weather forecast announced a warm fall.
