Florals





Hey guys! So the weather finally cooled down. All this week it was burning to the point where we just didn't have the energy to blog. But today was much better with the cool breeze, breezy enough to pull out our light cardigans and kimonos. Putting together outfits and finding something to wear is easier when the weather is a bit cooler. We wish it would stay like this forever!

Christal is wearing, 1.) Hand-made Kimono, 2.) Black lace top from H&M, 3.) Black pants from Cotton On, & 4.) Black chunky boots from Asos.

Christina is wearing 1.) Hand-made floral top, 2.) Grey cardigan from Grandma's closet, 3.) Acid washed jeans from Forever 21, & 4.) Black sandals.

XOXO,
Christal & Christina

Some Like It Hot







Even though fall is slowly approaching it's still very hot outside and because it's too hot to layer we focus more on prints, patterns, and colors. Utilizing bold patterns and loud prints can really make a statement while it's still hot outside.

Christal's Look: 1.) Elephant tank, 2.) African Print shorts, 3.) Black boots from ASOS.
Christina's Style: 1.) Crop top, 2.) Clock button-up, 3.) Ripped jeans.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind






We all have that one favorite piece of clothing that we let take over almost all of our outfits. For me it has to be my mom jeans and for Christina its oversized flannels... But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Hide and put away the clothes that you always run to in the very back of your closet or at the bottom of your clothes drawer. This way you’ll be forced to wear the clothes that you abandoned and show off the old but new stuff. Then after two months you can switch and rotate your clothes so you’ll get a chance to wear everything in your closet.

Christal is wearing a 1.) Jean button up, 2.)Riding pants, 3.) Black cami top, 4.) Kufi hat, & 5.) sandals.
Christina is wearing a 1.) Brown blazer, 2.) Jeans from GAP, 3.) Grey cami top, 4.) sandals & 5.) kufi hat.

XOXO, 
Christal & Christina

First Day Of School Outfit Tips






Hey guys! Christina & I started school today. For many of our followers and readers you may have already started school, about to go back to school, or are officially done with school. For those who have to go back and those that have already finished all thought about first day of school outfits. We’ve all done it. On the first day back every one wants to show off their style and fresh new clothes, but it only lasts for a week. That’s because you guys are so eager and wear your new clothes in one week and start repeating the same outfits next week. 

Here are a few tips:

On the first day of school from now on mix it up a bit. Wear some of your new clothes and old clothes together so that way you have more options and won’t run out of your fresh new clothes. This way it’ll last longer than a week. You don’t have to do it just for back to school shopping, make it a habit and stretch out your clothes options for future events or parties.

When you’re comfortable you’re confident. A lot of people over-do it when showing off their style at school on the first day because they bought so many clothes and don’t know how to act. When getting your outfits together remember to dress comfortable because on the first day you’re getting used to finding your classes, finding your clique, and finding yourself. So don’t go walking around in 5 inch stilettos, short shorts, or mini crop top.

Three times out of ten, no one remember the clothes you wore from the previous year. With that said, go and try it out. Explore your closet, experiment, be creative, and put different outfits together using the clothes you bought with the clothes you already have. We both do this every year and it’s worked out successfully.

Can you guess what’s new and what’s old?  Exactly you can’t! Christal is wearing 1.) NEW boyfriend jeans  from Cotton On, 2.) NEW oxfords from Forever21, 3.) OLD button down shirt from the thrift store,  & an 4.) OLD Varsity jacket from Forever21. Christina is wearing 1.) OLD Jean Button up from Forever 21, 2.) NEW Black crop tops from H&M, 3.) NEW black jeans from GAP, & 4.) OLD Dr. Martens.

See without stating which of our garments were old and new you guys wouldn’t have had a clue. With that being said, try it out the next time you go shopping.

XOXO, Christal & Christina
