Flares, flares, and more flares! If you’re lucky you’ve still got an old pair of flared jeans in the back of your cupboard (we can wait while you go check). Because they’re officially back in the fashion game. In our eyes, they never left the fashion game but we’ve always loved a good pair of flares! The reason for our blog: we want to see this latest trend translated onto the high street. Whenever a certain item makes a comeback we never see that much of it in street styles.
Flares have always been popular through fashion history, bell bottoms in the 1970s were a big hit. While skinny jeans are a great staple, I think it’s time to spice your wardrobe up with some funky flares. Not only do they look super flattering on, but are amazingly comfortable and make you look taller, slimmer and who doesn’t like the appearance of longer legs?. We love wearing flares, it gives any outfit an extra edge, an effortless style. You can match them with a shirt or turtleneck, whatever your choice you’ll look amazing!
You could pair them with the beautiful t-shirts from Twinship. We are obsessed with these fabulous t-shirts from the Eritrean twin sister’s Feven and Helena. We love their style, ethos and creativity. They launched Eritrean clothing online, with the tagline
“MAYBE SHE’S BORN WITH IT. MAYBE SHE’S HABESHA”
You may have noticed that everyone is wearing faux fur and shearling coat’s right now. Leopard print and shearling is always in fashion
and they are by far the most useful item in our wardrobe. So stay warm and swagger like a 70’s star!
The best thing about this look is that you can express your personality through clothing, which we love to promote but not many trends allow us to do.
All you need to do is pull out any clothes you wouldn’t normally wear together and create your own style!
Have fun being you x

Breast Cancer Care asked us to join The Big Pink Campaign, to add something PINK to help to spread the word. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Promoting awareness of this is extremely important to all women and is something that’s close to all of our hearts.
Last year we both found lumps which turned out to be the cyst at the same time. It’s very important that we check our breasts regularly. Did you know men can get breast cancer too? 1% of breast cancer cases are male.
Pink is BACK, it’s a fashionable must-have right now and the trend has been spotted on the street everywhere. We are in LOVE with the pop pink blazer from ASOS, with the most beautiful lace bodysuit. It is an oversize blazer which can be worn as a dress or with jeans. Kim Kardashian wears it too, without the hold ups hosiery. Forget those bodycon dresses, it’s all about being a girl boss in a must-have blazer dress. It’s flattering and fits like a glove.
Why the BIG PINK campaign is very IMPORTANT..
Every year, 62,000 people in the UK are told they have breast cancer. The diagnosis not only changes their lives forever, but also the lives of their family and friends. Breast Cancer Care understands the emotions, challenges and decisions people face every day. They know that everyone’s experience is different. That’s why they are there to offer support and information and campaign for better care.
Breast Cancer Care are the only specialist UK-wide charity providing support to people with breast cancer. Their free services include support over the phone with a nurse or someone who’s been there, welcoming online forums, reliable information and local group support. They’ll help people to live life with breast cancer and beyond. From the moment someone notices something isn’t right, through their treatment and beyond, Breast Cancer Care will be there.
691,000 people in the UK are currently living with a breast cancer diagnosis. Right now, Breast Cancer Care can’t reach everyone when they need them. With support, they can be here for more people, with care, support and information.
By us and supporting Breast Cancer Care, you can be confident that you’ll be helping people through one of the most difficult challenges they will ever face.
Fundraising ideas include holding a pink party, asking your family, friends and work to wear pink for a day and making a donation.
Help us spread the word, support ladies and raise funds for the cause.
We spent one week on the beautiful island with our gorgeous family friends. We thought we’d like to share with you all.
Malta is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, that sits just above Libya and below Sicily – the perfect stop-off into Europe. It’s impossible not to love this lovely island, there is a year-round sunshine, more beautiful beaches, a vibrant nightlife and a very rich culture.
Valletta is the most beautiful city and a capital of the island. It is one of UNESCO World Heritage sites which is 500 years old. The gem is rich to see and explore, with fascinating historical buildings around every corner.
We spent a few hours in Valletta, we wandered up and down the narrow streets admiring the buildings, especially the doorways and we fell in love with everything we saw. We wish we had more than just a few hours to explore more in Valletta and this is definitely not a goodbye, we will be back!
We’re wearing a very colourful and gorgeous print dress with the bell sleeves from Nanawax. You can wear in two ways, top and dress with fashionable trainers that go with everything in your wardrobe.
It’s weird being back in London after we traveled so much, London is a fast-paced city obviously and we’ve been trying to adjust back into our reality. We can’t believe that summer is almost over but that doesn’t mean we can’t travel and of course, you can wear a pop of colours.
We got the dresses from Boohoo and Whistles, which are both sold out, unfortunately. Boho is chic and effortless. Many may think that the tighter the better, however, boho looks embrace wearing the more comfortable free-flowing outfit yet still looking beautiful. The best thing about this look is that you can express your personality through clothing which is something not many trends allow us to do.
Hermon absolutely loved her sandals, made by Tia Handmade. It’s the perfect souvenir from Mykonos if you want something unique that you can enjoy for a long time. I highly recommend finding this gem of a shop.
We have always dreamed of going to the beautiful Provence but we found a place in Banstead near London around 30 mins away, isn’t that great? It was our first time visiting Mayfield Lavender Fields and we were amazed to see the beautiful place. It’s a perfect getaway for yourself. At this time, the weather wasn’t that great but we don’t ever let the rain stop us.
We had the opportunity to wear watches by Daniel Wellington, we chose the stylish Classic Petite Melrose in gold (32mm) and Classic Black Cornwall (36mm) with interchangeable strap, what a bonus. It definitely adds to the feeling of quality when you have a watch this thin, we don’t wear watch often but this one fits us so well and didn’t add much weight which we loved tremendously!
We wore maxi dresses from miss guided, we were impressed with the material, style and the price too. At £35 with good quality.
There was magic in the air. We ran our fingertips along the rows of lavender, stoop down to smell the plants and twirled in the fields. Happiness is the joy of having a sister.
We’re honoured to part of #DWMoments Daniel Wellington Collaboration.
