Figuring it out

From the beginniing of our style journey Belinda and I wanted to be brand ambassadors. We just didn’t know how to do this. Every step of growing our social media has been about figuring things out. We have learned so much already and still we don’t know even half of it. We also didn’t want to be associated with a brand that didn’t have the same ethos as us. From the very start we decided to work hard at building a presence on social media, but also stay true to who we are.

Lessons from The White Shirt Challenge

White shirts are a great staple for the spring/summer seasons. They are light and airy and generally work for all skin tones. And of course, there are variants of white, so if a bright/stark white, doesn’t work for you, you could try off-white, stone, beige, cream or taupe. So many options.

“Wearing it Twice” Challenge

If you follow us on Instagram, you will know that Matilda and I are fond of doing challenges. We love to push ourselves where fashion is concerned. Neither one of us, has any kind of training or history of working in the fashion industry. We are just a couple of moms who got bored with life and decided to join Social Media, and share our journey with fashion very publicly! Scary!!! We know, but we’re anything but shy of a challenge, so the challenges we set out to do every month on IG, reflect how we feel on the inside – Doing it afraid!
