Coney Island


On Melissa:
Pill Box Hat- H&M
Pearls- H&M
Jacket- Free People
Shoes-Zara
Jeans-Rock and Republic

This look was inspired by Jackie O, but I tired to modernize it with the jeans.  I tried to keep the  essence of her past beauty with the pearls, lipstick, and pillbox hat.  She is one of my favorite fashion icons so i thought I'd pay tribute to her.


Yes, we do look in pain. This was caused by the fact that it was incredibly WINDY.


On Aubrey:
White Sweater- H&M
Printed Scarf- H&M
Tee- Express
Belt- Zara
Dark Denim- H&M
Heels- Bakers
Bow- American Apparel

The look I was going for here was little girl meets bright yellow highlighter. I saw this darling little bow first on http://www.manrepeller.com/. The hilarious blogger behind this site wore it in a maroon and I though what a cute way to make an outfit a little more interesting. This is my first real attempt at spring colors on our blog. I have become on slightly obsessed with color and color blocking so look forward to lots more:)

On a side note, I was considering maybe displaying some of my fashion sketches on our blog. What do you guys think?



These are genuine laughs here, I could not get over how incredibly windy it was. My hair had a mind of its own.

We took advantage of a beautiful day and little work to do for once to visit Coney Island. These are the pictures we took, hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by! We wish every one of you a lovely day:)
