DENIM JUMPSUIT

Classic leather jacketGrey, denim and leather for Autumn DENIM JUMPSUITSilver Superga Trainers with a Denim Jumpsuitwearing: Gap denim jumpsuit (on sale!), Marks & Spencer jumper (from the summer season, you may be able to find it in-store in the sale, similar here), Topshop jacket (really old, similar here), Chanel bag, Superga trainers

Over the next few days we will be showing you some our favourite ways to wear denim.  I always enjoy wearing a jumpsuit because they are sooo incredibly comfortable, it’s basically like wearing a socially acceptable, trendier baby-grow or onsie. The only downer is, going to the toilet. I often find myself putting it off till I potentially could wet myself because I hate having to completely un-button to sit on the loo practically naked, feeling all exposed. Haha. Anyways… This was the outfit I wore on a colder day, hence the jumper and jacket. I know alot of people are excited to see Autumn come, not me. I feel like I haven’t had enough warm long Summer days yet.

Our final day of sightseeing was incredible- we spend all day soaking in the sights of the city. We started off at Fishermans Wharf where we stuffed ourself full of sourdough bread (literally- we had 2 loaves!!). We popped into the Musée Mécanique to play some old school games- we had so much fun on all the machines, some of them really made us giggle (the sexy test specifically). We then headed for the sea-lions at Pier39- we stood and watched them for half an hour. They were very entertaining fighting for their position on the docks and lounging around. Jordan wanted to check out Chinatown, which is supposedly the biggest chinatown outside Asia. And it was HUGE- I couldn’t believe how big of an area it covered. We enjoyed wondering through ogling at all the weird and wonderful things.

We didn’t realise how hilly San Francisco was- so we continued up Grant street till we hit the shopping area (Union Square)!! I loved the hearts that surrounded union square. After shopping we wanted to see the painted ladies (which is a famous row of beautiful homes). It was a little bit of a walk but it was such a nice day so we didn’t mind the walk and we got to see more of the city that way. When we reached Alamo Square (after taking some photos) we took a half an hour break. I desperately wanted to ride a cable car so thats where we went next- we accidentally bumped into the City Hall- which was so beautiful and stopped for some photos outside- there was some music (if you can’t tell by my amazing moves). I LOVED the cable car, we were squished in like sardines but we got scored a front seat spot so we had fantastic views of the city. The cable car dropped us off back at the waters edge- so we stopped in Ghirardelli square for a little treat, Jordan said it was the best ice-cream sundae he’s ever had (which is a big deal for him!). After stopping for ice cream we walked towards the bridge.

My favourite part of the trip was watching the sun set behind the Golden Gate Bridge- it was a magical moment. We both fell in love with the city and will definitely be returning!!

Our second day was just as much fun as the first- we went to church in San Francisco and then headed for Lombard street. We couldn’t believe how steep it was and how tight the turns were but it is surrounded by the most beautiful homes! We then rented some bikes and biked to the Golden Gate bridge, over the bridge (stopping for pictures, of course) and back, it was defintely longer than we expected! We were very sweaty after the bike ride! And a skirt was not necessarily the best idea… It was very windy over the bridge.

Once we returned the bikes we then drove over the bridge and headed for a little town called Sausalito- we did some window shopping and stopped for lunch at a pizza cafe. It had a great view of the city (I was too busy enjoying the moment to take photos, sorry). We jumped back in the car and made our way up the hill to Muir woods which is famous (Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Return of the Jedi were filmed there). We enjoyed aimlessly wandering around. We ended the day in the wine region- first of all we visited Sonoma (which was my personal favourite) the town square was so quaint and I loved the shops and cafes. And I couldn’t go to wine region without visiting Napa Valley (because of Parent Trap!). We loved walking the vineyards and driving through the rolling hills.

Now to explore the city…

Wedding outfit: H&M jumper, J.Crew skirt , Old Navy sandals (old, similar here), Accessorize necklace (old but I love this one), Urban Outfitters sunglasses 

We took a last minute trip to San Francisco for a friends wedding and turned it into a 4 day holiday. We decided to pack light (which I have NEVER done before) I was a little worried about fitting all of my clothes into a backpack- but I did it!! I was so proud of myself.

We flew in late Friday evening and were up bright and early Saturday morning to go to the LDS Oakland Temple- it was a little overcast and foggy (I actually changed outfits from a t-shirt into a jumper). It was a lot chiller than I had expected. We then headed to the hills of Oakland to a spot called Grizzly Peak which offered an incredible view of the city. We then went in the  search for the ‘pretty steps’ (Moraga Steps) this is what I was most excited for, and they did not disappoint!! They were BEAUTIFUL- we spent about 45 minutes just walking up and down admiring how incredible the mosaics were. Land’s End was next on our list as we pulled up there was an art class happening- we loved sitting and watching their canvases come to life. I would have liked to join in! We walked along waterfront trail for a while soaking in the views. It was then time for the wedding reception so we cruises down highway 1 towards Montara Beach. We had a fabulous first day!

Felicity wears: Zara dress and socks (available in-stores, online alternative), Start-rite shoes

Last Sunday our co-ordinating looks were a happy accident. One of the things we love about dresses are their versatility. And they’re fun and pretty to wear! Your favourite Summer dress doesn’t have to be put at the back of your wardrobe, keep it at the front for Autumn and just wear tights and loafers like Camilla. Or if its a nice day then wear bare legs and a heavier shoe like Charlotte has.

Camilla was flying to Utah for the whole month of July, so naturally I (Natasha) flew out to meet her to have some sister fun!! We spent a week and a half in Utah exploring the Uinta mountains (Stewart falls), Moab and Salt Lake City. Utah has so much to offer from beautiful red rock surroundings to luchious green hikes (and SO many good places to eat!!). We have so many friends there we always have an amazing time.

We then journey to Boise. Where we also have close friends (we call them family now) a trip to boise is not complete without a hike and a visit to the market which offers so many delicious treats (only a few pictured above).

We finished our trip back in Utah eating IN-N-OUT. It was hard to say good-bye but we have so many memories from our holiday.

Cornwall is one of our happy places. What we love about Cornwall is how relaxed it is, and the ridiculous foodie scene. We’ve eaten pizza on the beach cooked by some local boys who just setup their stone baked pizzeria in the open air, at what looked like a quaint run down inn but turned out to be an absolute gem of a seafood restaurant, and at a fancy beachside restaurant (which we were still in damp beaches clothes and wet salty hair, and it was 100% acceptable.) Literally every meal was delicious. Cornish residents take their food very seriously, and we love to eat it. So other than eating and never getting dressed up, or having completely dry hair we love to surf, swim and body board in the sea (in full wetsuits). Going on costal hikes is another love, the wind and wide open views of the coast and bays are so uplifting. Barbecues on the beach with lots of friends and family. Some our favourite places in the North East of Cornwall are, Polzeath, Padstow, Mawgan Porth and Port Isaac, there are still so many places we want to visit.

The cardigans we are wearing were knitted by our extremely talented Nan, we say what we wants and she creates knitting patterns from memory. Our sandals are what we often refer to as a Jesus sandal, if its natural un treated leather, has a cross over pattern then it makes it a Jesus sandal. What we are wearing is pretty much our Cornwall beach uniform, distressed denim, stripes and our knitted by nan cardigans.
