Felicity wears: Marie Chantal onesie, Enchanting Bows headband
This is what I wore to a low key Christmas party. I struggle to know what to wear to casual parties, I would always rather over dress than under dress. In order to tone down the sparkle I wore flats and my hair in a pony. It wasn’t until a friend pointed out to me that I realised Felicity and I had matching bows in our hair, an unintended pleasantry. When going to eat or attending an evening soiree with Felicity I always like to have posh/ cute onesie pyjamas, so when she falls asleep in the car on the way home it’s easy to put her straight to bed. And then while we are out she looks nice. When I saw this onesie I initially intended on it being a halloween costume, but it was too big for her then. Now she is my Christmas angel and looks adorable in it. Are you ready for Christmas?
wearing: Fenn Wright Manson Coat (old, similar here and I love this coat), Burberry Scarf, Topshop Jeans, Converse, MAC ‘Plink!’ Lipstick
So if you follow me on Instagram you’ll know my husband and I just moved to America. It was a big move for me, I love being at home and spending time with my family… however I am excited for this next adventure ahead of me/us. My aim is to visit all 50 states while we’re here, I already have 15 ticked off.. so only 35 to go (follow along with me on Instagram).
Today we explored our ‘home state’ Indiana and went to South Bend for a day trip, my favourite spot was Notre Dame University. It was the most magical and beautiful campus I have ever walked around, even in the freezing cold. You defiantly cannot leave the house without a coat, for those American followers let me know your favourite place to buy the perfect winter coat!

Winter time means beanie weather, and boy do we love a pom pom beanie. We got our hats from ebay, they have just about every kind of hat you could imagine, and at surprisingly nice prices it’s hard to say no. Its Friday and Christmas is nearly here. WAHOOO!! Have a wonderful day.

(right) Camilla wears: H&M shirt, Topshop skirt & headband (both old, similar here and here), Stuart Weitzman boots
We bought this shirt on the same day from H&M last week. Well actually Charlotte loved Camilla’s find so she asked her to fetch another one. This shirt would also look great with jeans for a double denim look. Everything about it is perfect, a bit of glitz and loosely cut, can be worn casually in the day with a gilet or jumper or with leather trousers and heels for the evening. How do you wear you wear you’re denim shirt(s)? We would love to know. Thanks for checking in.

It’s a bit emotional looking at these photos because this was the day before Natasha left. So consequently will be our last trio of photos for a while. :( We facetime a few times a week, Natasha is doing well, but I’m sure she will tell you about her American life in her next blog post. As for the clothes, this is our individual take on wearing pencil skirts with jumpers for this winter season. Which look is your favourite? Thanks for stopping by.
wearing: Zara cardigan (old, but I also LOVE this one), Ralph Lauren shirt, Zara necklace (available instore, similar online), M&S jeans, Russell & Bromley loafers
The cardigan and necklace are both Charlotte’s. (See how she wore this necklace a few weeks ago.) The cardigan was bought years ago and we always thought it was a cardigan, until we saw another blogger wearing it as a top. Then realised we had been wearing it wrong. The label is by the buttons, so clearly the buttons go at the back. But it got me thinking about wearing tops, cardigans, jumpers the conventional way and challenging that. I’m going to try and wear tops and cardigans backwards more often and see if it can work.
Charlotte wears: Zara top (available instore, very tempted by this one aslo), AG Jeans, Converse, Clinique lips
Felicity wears: Petit Bateau dress, M&S tights, Converse
Felicity and I are matching again, keeping it casual in Converse and stripes. How adorable is my little Felicity?!? She crawls, pulls herself up any peice of furniture and will play with any bit of electrical equipment (if she can- keys, remotes, phones, ipads…) I want to put some white satin ribbon in her little converse. As soon as I’ve done it I will instagram a picture. We are getting ready to say farewell to Natasha for a little while. Next week she emigrates to America :( Its a bittersweet situation.
(left) Charlotte wears: Olive Jumper, Topshop pleather trousers, Russell & Bromley boots, Chanel bag, Catarzi hat (sold out but I also love this colour), Pashmina scarf
(right) Natasha wears: Olive jumper, Topshop jeans, Ugg boots, Oui scarf, Louis Vuitton bag
Separate shopping trips (to Javelin) resulted in us purchasing the same jumper. Its not an ‘uh oh’ or ‘she stole my look’ moment but a bit of a, ‘heyyy, nice jumper’ ;) moment.The reason we started this blog was to share how we as sisters steal / borrow each others clothes and style them differently. We love personal style and enjoy looking at how other bloggers / people on the street can wear one item and create completely different looks. Personal style is an insight into someones personality. We hope you like our jumpers and how we wore them.
We hope our American friends and readers have recovered from your food comas.

Felicity wears: Marks & Spencer dress & tights (available in stores), Chipie faux fur gilet (from last season, but I also love this one), Lili Gaufrette hat (old, but this one is adorable)
You often read in fashion magazines and on blogs headlines like; ‘winter essentials’ ‘autumn uniform’ ‘must haves for this season’. So last week when I declared that oversized jumpers and mens shirts are my Autumn uniform, I really meant it. Wearing this combination around 3 times a week at the moment, and I’m not bored of it it and its so comfortable. I’m either in a rut or am just enjoying Jonathan’s wardrobe. Not sure which one yet. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. My in-laws came to visit today. Its always nice to see them. What did/are you doing for the weekend?
