OOTD: bananas & midriff experimentation


"This shh is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S"
- Gwen Stefani

The moment I spotted this banana print fabric in Cotton On I was in love. I was however a little unsure on the cropped style of the t-shirt. Crop tops have been a massive trend these past few summers but the few I own never seem to sit right. Being 5'11, crops tops can easily become overly cropped on me and result in a lot of midriff on show. The reason I love this banana top is its the perfect length. Although I'm not usually one to bare my mid-section, I felt I little daring last week and decided to try wearing the top with my favourite Esprit mid-rise jeans. I am still not 100% convinced about this whole midriff thing, but I can say I am completely in love with this banana print.

After searching for a quote for this blog post Tara and I couldn't help, but thing of Gwen Stefani's 'Hollaback Girl' song. I'm having total throwback moment watching the old music video. She's even wearing a crop top in the video, how convenient ;)

Insta-Round Up: A Few Recent Favourites


"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."
- Dorothea Lange

So we've talked before about our love of instagram. It's another place on the internet we can be found having fun creating more visual things, and playing with different styles of photos. We also tend to post there a little more often since its faster than a blog post or video, so follow us at @shopstyleconquer and @tardaeda to see what we are up to (even when we were meant to be studying for exams haha)

We decided to put together a few of our favourite instagram posts from the past couple of weeks that you might have missed!
