Tara's new haircut: The "lob"


“Some of the worst mistakes in my life were haircuts” 
― Jim Morrison

If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed I got a haircut last Friday. I have had long hair for a very long time and only last year made a drastic (for me) chop to mid-length. Ellen had to deal with my usual process of hating it then coming to love it, but somehow over this time I've become less attached to my hair (it will always grow out) and I was keen to try going even shorter. The other possibility is that seeing so many photos of various celebrities and women rocking the "lob" (long bob) finally helped me find the confidence to give it a go. This haircut and I are still going through an acclimation period, i.e. I don't really know what to do with it yet, but given time I think we can work it out.

shoes - Play Motives

Who knew looking for hair related quotes would be so entertaining? When I was looking for one to go with this post I found many I wanted to include that made me laugh. But alas there could only be one and it is possible I only find them funny because while I'm writing this it is late and I've had uni/assignments all day. I guess after a good sleep we shall see how hil-hair-ious they actually were (oh dear better go to bed)

The Adult Tutu


"I am not young, but I feel young"
- Coco Chanel

Back in March, Tara and I attended the 'Boohoo' Autumn/Winte
r preview (check out our post here). It was there that I first laid eyes on this piece of perfection. A pastel blue chiffon knee length skirt. As a child I was very much into my tutu skirts, they were my wardrobe staple. But when it comes to growing up you're not exactly taken seriously if wearing a pink tutu and fairy wings, and I never could find myself a tutu to fulfill my inner 5 year old. This skirt has a subtle nod to the fun and beauty of a classic tutu. The chiffon fabric floats when I walk and the colour is of course stunning. But the sophisticated silhouette, allows me to still look oh-so grown up so I like to call it my grown up tutu. Since the A/W preview when we first met I'd been pining over this beauty. It jumped in and out of my shopping basket and I could never get it out of my head. Finally we were united when the lovely Beat PR gifted it to me. This skirt and I were just meant to be <3

Shoes : Capelli Rossi

New Zealand Ski Trip Lookbook/Outfits: Shop Style Conquer at Mt Ruapehu


“A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.” 

― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

These holidays we went for a ski trip to our much beloved Mt Ruapehu. Unfortunately (since Ruapehu is predictably unpredictable) there wasn't as much snow as we are normally accustomed to and it was a bit of an 'avoid the rocks' game. So  we took a couple of days off, to avoid the windy/rocky conditions, and ended up going for an impromptu picnic and bush hike (disguised as a bush "walk"). These are some of the outfits we wore on our trip like comfy penny boarding/travelling clothes, to our ski gear. 

We hope you enjoy this little glimpse into our holiday :), lets all cross our fingers that this snow keeps coming and there's a good season ahead!
