So Little Time

Lust haves

Sometimes you just can’t catch up with life. It’s a train that keeps running the same city loop and never stops. There are people on board enjoying the ride and the rest of us are waiting to get on. Like they say in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, “noooooobody ever goes in, and noooobody ever comes out!”. We ended up jumping onto the back of a moving train and are praying we’ll get out alive. No matter, you can always make time for lust haves.

This weeks lust haves were lovingly chosen by The Short.

White Noise

To say we’re busy might be an understatement, but being busy is never an excuse to not look chic 24/7. Whilst we try our darnedest, lust haves always end up looking better. Sigh.

Gin Anyone?

Monday’s apparently suck, so I’m told. Days tend to lose all meaning when you’re juggling a 5 day uni timetable, 3 day working week, internship & blogging responsibilities in conjunction with your ever-distracting social life. So here’s to outfits that can take you from studying to lunch to work to G&T time!

Stuck in the Middle with You

If you haven’t caught on already, we really love midi skirts. This look pretty much summarises what we will be wearing all winter long, with a few more layers no doubt. And heels for Steph of course.

I Believe I Can Fly

The weather is turning on us this week so we’ve pulled out the parka and knits in preparation. Transeasonal dressing can be a hard one to master. It’s the art of balancing an icy gust of wind and scattered cloud cover with a hot sun. You need to be warm without looking like you’re going to Sochi. In comes the sheer trend. A long-sleeved sheer piece is a good way to combat erratic, bipolar weather. You get coverage but still an element of lightness. It’s also a little bit smexy. Just not in these pictures…
