Black Muddled Teal

 
What better way to spice up your Spring than with a pair of fun patterned shades! Tortoiseshell and animal prints are classics, especially among conservative fashionistas, because of the muted tones . But we were feeling a little adventurous when perusing the  Vision Direct site. Spoilt for choice, we finally settled on these butterfly framed sunnies.  These Von Zipper beauties  are perfect for those who want the added, yet subtle pop of colour, with Black Muddled Teal frames and pink gradient lenses. Like the Vogue pair we reviewed in our last post ( here), we were impressed by the make of these glasses, and not to mention the complimentary lens cleaners they cam with!
 
 
I The Outfit I
 
 Comfy. Casual. Chic. The 3 Cs that sum up our style. This outfit is something you can quickly throw on and look like you've spent the whole night planning. We think that the gold hardware on the clutch and heeled sandal add the perfect touch of sass to the simple denim dress. Pop on a pair of patterned sunnies and you've got all of the 3 Cs covered!

Beige Tortoise

 
With the sun now making a bright daily appearance, sunglasses have become a compulsary accessory for us. We love the way something so simple can instantly transform an entire outfit. For the last year, we've been desperately hunting  for new shades to add to our dismal collection with no luck. So when we were contaced by the lovely people at Vision Direct we did not waste any time!
 
The classic wayfares have been facing some stiff competiton on the sunglassees market of late with all the fashion movers and shakers seemingly taking a liking to round and cat eye frames. Retro shaped shades have been on the top of our list for yonks, but with our petite faces, they all seem to drown us. But as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait, right?! So after a few hours (yes, hours) scrolling through Vision Direct's website and their overwhelming range, we hit jackpot and managed to find 2 shades that we are already obsessed with. In today's, post we'll be styling 1 of these.
 

These Vogue Eyewear sungalsesses come in 9 different shades, but we opted for Beige Tortoise because they are a refreshing change from the typical black or brown frames, but still quite neutral. Although, if you look carefully, the edge of the frame is cerulean which adds a quirky pop of colour.

 The brown tinted lens on these bad boys are round and reminiscent of the 50s, but it's the frame which gives them a cat eye finish. If you're a serial sunglass snapper, then this may be just what you need. The frames are well made and sturdy but still extremely light as a feather, making it the perfect accessory for your bikini when you hit the sand this summer!

I THE OUTFIT I
We call this our lazy sunday outfit which is probably something you'd catch us in if we're heading to the beach or planning on a no frills, relaxing day. You can pair the shades with something bright and bold, but we like the look of the taupe frames against a crisp white top

Keep your eyes peeled because we'll be styling the second pair of sunnies we picked up very soon. Trust us, you won't be disappointed!

Spring Affair I Florals + Denim


If we could only wear 2 things for the rest of our lives, it would have to be hands down florals and denim! They are the 2 timeless trends that have captured the fashion world's heart over the years, and occupy a hefty chunk of our closet. So we thought we'd pay homage to our beloved florals and denim by sharing with you 2 recent additions to our ever growing collection from Choies.

 
I  THE FLORALS  I
 
Now, this isn't your ordinary, run of the mill floral top. The oriental flowers definitely are refreshingly more mature than your typical girl next door, sweet floral designs. The one thing we weren't sure about when picking out this top was the peplum detailing on either side of the waist. We never jumped on the peplum bandwagon, but the ruffles on this top are a lot more subtle and less structured which is what turned us off the peplum when it first came onto fashion the scene.

I  THE DENIM  I
 
Move over LBD and hello LDD (Little Denim Dress)!! A denim dress should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe and something we could argue is more versatile than the good ol' LBD. Light wash denim is relatively neutral, so it's styling potential is endless. We decided to stick to nude and gold accessories for a chic and clean look.

The one thing we have to say about this dress is that ironing this thing takes quite some time. So it's definitely not the type of dress you'll be wearing when you're in a rush to dash out the door. Aside from that, we think we'll be fighting all season long over this dress!

Style Snag: Stone Style 101 (Part I)

She's got the leading man, the impressive resume, and when it comes to street style, she's got that well and truly sorted! Our latest muse is none other than Emma Stone, the ginger beauty we'd all love to call our BFF. As if dazzling Spiderman himself wasn't enough, Emma's fashion choices are annoyingly impossible to fault. No, you'll never see her on the worst dressed list. Instead, her effortless style has made her the envy of millions, us included!
 
Emma's outfits are always centered around basics and staples. So just because you don't have her hefty bank account doesn't mean you can't dress like her on a modest budget!  In fact, if you style stalk her like we do, you'll quickly realise that she rewears many of her pieces- snaps for Emma! So the top tip to take away from Stone Style 101?...Invest in basics and versatile pieces and don't be afraid to recycle!

Emma's a less-is-more dresser. She often keeps her outfits quite simple, opting for minimal jewellery and basic pieces. But after studying her style for months, it is her penchant for oxfords or brogues which we've fallen head over heels for! They're such cute and comfy things, it's a no brainer why she's constantly snapped in them.

 

Emma's not wearing any rings in this outfit, but if you want to add a little bling then try to match it to other metals in your outfit. So here we've opted for some gold rings which match the buttons on the cardigan perfectly.

This has to be one of our all time favourite looks! The LBD is so simple, but Emma stays true to her preppy style with the peeping collar. Unfortunately we don't have a dress like this in our wardrobe, but there's nothing a little creativity can't fix! We layered a top underneath a black skater dress to recreate this chic and oh so adorable look!
 
  DRESS: Target / COLLAR TOP: Paper Scissors / BRACELETS: Lovisa /
SHOES: Airflex from Betts


Again, Emma keeps her jewellery to a bare mineral. We know for some it's probably very difficult, but take a leaf out of Stone style 101 and restrain yourself from throwing on a big statement necklace or earrings.


 
Our love affair with Emma Stone's style is going strong, so much so that we've split this style snag into 2 and will be recreating 2 more of her looks in our next post! Stay tuned :)
 
In the meantime, which celebs have been the victim of your Style-stalking?

OOTD: Mr. Stripes


Hi, we're M + K and we're Stripe-aholics. There, we've said it. We have no self control whatsoever when it comes to stripes! We have quite a collection, but we don't think it will stop growing anytime soon. We've put a ban on purchasing any stripes, but when they are such an effortless and easy to style print, it's pretty darn hard not to give in. Especially in cooler months when stores seem to be stripes galore, you're bound to catch us in a stripey sweater or sleeved top every odd day.
Here is a snap from the other day starring yours truly, Mr Stripes! When we're going for a casual and comfy look, we prefer to keep accessories to a minimal, and stripes let you get away with this! They require close to no styling and are perfect for those "oh-no-I-should-have-been-out-the-door-30minutes-ago" mornings.
