PARSIMONY

I'm wearing: top MAURIE AND EVE, skirt KARLA SPETIC (via Joy Hysteric), sunglasses LE SPECS, shoes STELLA MCARTNEY 
Tasfia is wearing: top AJE, skirt DION LEE (both via Joy Hysteric). sunglasses from Korea (similar), shoes SENSO, bag DEADLY PONIES. 
 The statement skirt. Over sassy shoes, rad bags and cute dresses and tops, I think I find a statement skirt most 'swoon-worthy' (for that reason, we have an abundance of skirts and a shortage of tops, but that is scoop for another day, another chapter). Two of our favourites would for this season would have to be this sweet and flirty Karla Spetic number and this uber rad thermal printed Dion Lee piece Tas is wearing. Something that bothers me though, is that you often see peeps wearing their statement skirts with just a plain grey t-shirt - which just doesn't tick all the boxes for me. Sure, I don't think its right to wear a statement skirt with a busy top, but 'un-busy' doesn't have to equal boring (in my books anyway). Our favourite way to wear a statement skirt is with a fairly monochromatic top, with an interesting cut, or texture - preferably one that complements the silhouette of the skirt!

  6. The two of you never fail to amaze me. I love how you guys aren't afraid to play around with texture, colours etc. While most of your outfits look like something straight out of a lookbook, these two looks are probably one of my favourite looks from the two of you!
