Kate's wearing: Urban Outfitters top, Shakuhachi scarf print shorts, Urban Outfitters necklace and bracelets, Michael Kors watch, Isabel Marant eye bracelet, Witchery sandals. 

There's nothing better than wearing lightweight fabrics like silk in summer, because although one would think that denim shorts are a staple for the season, denim really isn't as comfortable to wear on a hot day. Shakuhachi have perfected the cut of these silk shorts, they're simple and not too baggy, which can often be a problem with lose-fitting shorts. The monotone colour scheme makes it easy to pair just about anything with them, including this Urban Outfitters peplum top. There is a reason why we have it in two colours (currently considering ordering more) and it is on the Urban Outfitters best-sellers list- it is the perfect care-free top. If you're looking for a peplum top that isn't too structured like most you see, or are simply wanting more wardrobe staples, we recommend this one. 


Olivia's wearing: Zara denim shirt and jeans, H&M knit, American Apparel beanie, Karen Walker Sunglasses, Kate's Isabel Marant sneakers. 

We used to completely steer clear of anything camouflage because it's a pretty risky pattern to wear, there's a fine line between cool, edgy camo pieces and awful, tacky ones, especially if they're not just in the typical military colours. It was easy to incorporate these Zara jeans into our wardrobes though because they can be paired with so many things that we wear. 

We've come to realise that every girl needs a denim shirt in her wardrobe, but a good one is hard to come by. Although they're just a simple piece, there are so many things that can go wrong - the shade of the denim, the flexibility of the fabric and also the cut, as many of them aren't feminine enough. This Zara one is perfect though, as it's made from a lightweight fabric and the dull gold studs add a nice touch, especially when layered with a knit like this. 

This is our final post from New York, so expect to see lots more summer content on the blog in the coming weeks!


Kate's wearing: Zara knit and jeans, Liv's Shakuhachi leather jacket, American Apparel beanie, 
 Celine sunglasses, Zara necklace and studded boots. 

We have to admit that the day we went bike riding in Central Park is the only time we took part in any form of exercise when we were both in New York, unless you count walking around Fifth Avenue. We were too busy enjoying the amazing shopping and the best burgers one can find - on a side note, we recommend Bill's Bar and Burger and Shake Shack and trust us, we would know, burgers are our all-time favourite, consider us burger experts. 

Considering the fact that we didn't get to spend a lot of time together in New York as Olivia was working five days a week, we didn't spend a lot of time choosing our outfits on weekends, as we wanted to get the most out of our days. This outfit is a great example of that, as I just chucked on a few basics, including Liv's beloved biker jacket, as I'm yet to find the perfect one of my own. 

You've probably noticed that we've been wearing a lot of Zara as of late, it's great for those things that you spontaneously decide you want, but don't want to spend a lot of money on in case you don't like it for long. We miss having multiple stores only minutes away from our apartment, that's one of the best things about America, the convenience of everything. 

P.S. We only just realised that we didn't have our Google follower icon in our sidebar, which is totally the reason behind our utterly embarrassing amount of followers (or is it? We sure hope so).
