Love Me Tender: Sweet Romantic Look

11 Apr

I don’t know what it is about Spring, but there is romance in the air!  The weather is getting warmer and its time to start peeling off some of those thick winter layers and showing a little bit of skin.

One of the trends I’ve wanted to wear for a while is thigh high knit stockings…they are very romantic without looking over the top seductive and are perfect for the early spring weather. I love the combination of the knit stockings with a short jean dress and a grey pinstripe vest or a grandpa sweater. It’s very sweet and has a lovely school girl feel to it, that is fresh and young. Isn’t that exactly what spring is all about!?

My outfit: Zara Dress, Bedo grey pinstripe vest, Tommy Hilfiger grandpa sweater, Hue Stockings- (The stockings are amazing for wearing with shorts and over tights) , Enzo Angiolini Wedge Lace Up booties.

Sorry about the poor photo quality…I took these quickly with my phone’s camera. But, I hope you like it anyway :)

Airport ‘Ready to Fly’ Style

26 Feb

Hmm…what to wear to the airport?

Flying in style - how to dress for a flight

Waiting for our flight - so comfy in a striped sweater and tights!

We love travelling and so naturally the airport is like our second home.  That’s why when we travel, we try to wear pieces that are easy yet fashionable. We love to be comfortable for those really long flights, but simply refuse to compromise on style – you never know who might sit next to you on your next flight! Tights, boots, and a layering of a long sweater over a simple cami make this an easy look to achieve.

Comfortable flight style

Here is a simple guide to how you can look stylish during your flight, while feeling at ease:

  1. Warm Sweater– The planes are always so cold and its best to stay cozy in a warm sweater then try to keep warm in a staticky airplane blanket. We love a grandpa sweater, like the wool blend Tommy Hilfiger that M is wearing. Its loose, long shape provides for comfort while adding a stylish element to a look. Wear it over a pair of tights and you will be ready for travelling in style.
  2. Scarf– this essential layering piece adds a little oomph of style to any outfit and is key when travelling because its so easy to just throw on or off.
  3. Tights- there is not much to say here…we would live in tights every day if we could- so comfortable!
  4. Comfortable Shoes– We always wear  a pair of comfortable shoes,  that can be taken off easily. M wore the  BCBG black leather riding boots,  and A brought her  brown leather Nine West boots.
  5. Oversized Travel Bag– Having a large bag, like the neverfull  Louis Vuitton, is important for travelling because there are  A LOT of things a girl has to bring- an essential make up kit, a book, some magazines, ipod, cell phone, passport, etc etc….also, this allows one to have a little of extra room for last minute shopping at the airport ;)
  6. Warm Socks–  We always wear or bring a pair of warm socks for the plane because we are super paranoid about being even the slightest bit cold.  Aside from this, socks are also important because they keep your feet clean when you are asked to take off your shoes at security. You do not want to be walking barefoot on that dirty (and cold) floor  :)

We hope you like our airport style…Of course the outfits will depend on the time of year and the destination. For us, these are the essential pieces that will work any time. Some people like to really dress up for the airport, while others dress down to a “i just rolled out of bed” look.  Regardless of what you choose to do, we hope our style ideas helped ;)
