SUMMER DATE NIGHT


So we fell a little bit in love with this lace cami back when we featured it in our summer holiday suitcase post and honestly haven't taken it off since. We both wore it religiously on hols - it seemed to be the perfect partner to just about anything. We were both saying the other week that we often feel a bit boring when it comes to 'going out clothes', sticking faithfully to a black cami & trouser combo or an off the shoulder top & jeans, we love that the lace cami added something a little different as well as being really easy to wear.
The high cut neckline is super flattering and we've got to say, the amazing strappy back got a lot of people stopping us in the streets and asking us where it was from! Don't be scared of its plungey-ness though, you don't have to bin your bra just yet,  just get one of those low back strapless bras that works perfectly underneath it.
Basically you need a lace cami in you lives and we promise you you won't take it off!

SS16 SALE STEALS


There we said it....sale shopping isn't for the faint hearted! You need stamina, a few key rules and a hit list. 
Well ladies, look no further...

One piece of sound advice is don't buy crazy things; items you would never glance at full price but are somehow drawn to them as soon as the word sale appears. It's definitely taken us time to get to this point and our long list of ill-fitting sale mistakes is as good as the next persons. But; we've changed, no longer do we head toward the 70% shoe rack filled with platforms we'd never wear, instead you can find us rooting around for classic items that we know we will wear time and time again.

Our top tip is to stick to your style and pick sale items that you know will work hard in your wardrobe -  that extra special stripey tee, those forever black boots, that expensive silk shirt that is much more affordable with 50% off, you know it makes sense :)

With that in mind we've trawled the stores to share with you the best of the best that the sales have to offer. You can expect lots of great basics, some much loved Twinset items that are now on sale as well as a few sneaky designer items thrown in too.

One last thing..get clicking before it's too late...You snooze you lose!

back to work...
CASUAL STYLE


So we're home!! We've had a few weeks off and are back in action feeling rested, refuelled and ready to go. We hope you kept up to date with our travels on Snapchat and our personal Instagrams but now it's back to business.
We're back at work and once again it's the constant struggle of what to wear for the possibility of four seasons in one day. We've lost count of how many times we've been caught shirt, sandals in the p*ssing rain, a chunky knit in 24 degrees, basically getting it wrong everyday. Right now we're loving a bit of PJ top action, an easy option for WTF weather dressing! (We've also got to let you in to a little secret...both our tops are actually 'wear to bed' pyjama tops!)

It feels good to be back :-)
