We took a break from blogging and now we're back!
After summer last year, life got a bit crazy: Agnes moved to Birmingham for uni and Cathy was focusing on finishing her final year at college. Now that uni and college have finished and summer has arrived, we are reunited again with loads more time to focus on the blog.
At the beginning of the year we both fell in love with the same jumper for the same reasons.
The sharp contrast between the black and the white was what caught our eyes at first, then add in the way in which these colors were laid out with the black in a deep V at the front and the back. It was just very visually appealing.
However it was the zip at the back that pushed us to buy it. We loved how it opened so you could choose whether to wear the jumper with an exposed back or not.
This is one of the things that makes the jumper very versatile. Another thing is that you can dress is up with heels or down with flats or trainers.
So in today's post this is what we wanted to show, two different ways in which this jumper can be worn.
I (Cathy) chose to wear the jumper loose with the zip slightly opened. I wore it with black skinny DIY jeans, which were size 14 to start with but then I tailored them to a size 10 and added a little detail at the bottom to give them an icy look. I chose to pair the jeans with some sandals which I got a year ago but I still love and our my favorite till this very day. However if it was cold I would've worn trainers.
This look is very casual and comfortable. It can be worn to college, uni, cinemas, a concert, or even to a date ;)
I (Agnes) chose to wear the jumper tucked in to some blue, loose fitting jeans.I love these jeans because they are super comfortable and I love the rips on them as they add so much detail. I chose to wear this look with some snakeskin print heels which I got not too long ago and they have now become my favorite. They are very comfortable and I feel that they add a hint of sass to any look.
This look is casual but smart and can be worn to uni, to town or even to a meal.

Solo post-Part 2
Okay so I've just started reading this book called 'love in my language'. Love in language is a book which teaches all kinds of love. First type of love being self-love. So I wanted to base this post on self-love. We live in a world where self-love is sometimes misinterpreted for cockiness. And its easy to forget to love yourself. Self-love is very important- before u can build a relationship with anyone, you must try to build a relationship with yourself. Find peace with yourself.
P.s- I haven't finished reading it yet lol
Those who know me know that I'm really obsessed with 90s style but too lazy to rock the look. However, for this look I combined 90s with current by pairing my diy ripped jeans with a baggy grey T shirt and topping things off with my favourite shoes (glads) and a cheeky choker. Enjoy!!!
