This summer is a bit of a busy one but here are some of our favourites to get us through the season...
Halter Tops (Brandy Melville) - For a long time now we have been caught in the wave of 90's inspired clothing making a return (thank God) and so for summer, have been investing in a multitude of crop tops, particularly halter tops. These are so light and perfect for the season as you barely ever get hot and they are a great but simple alternative to a plain tee, especially if you feel like showing some skin.
Nars BLKR 413 Lipstick and Mac Haute and Naughty Mascara - Given from one of us to the other as a birthday present, this lip colour has quickly become one of my (Arianne) favourites...ever. Yes, you could argue that it's not particularly bright or colourful but those are two things I'm don't normally 'do' so this is a perfect shade all-year round.
i-D Magazine, The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and The Go-Between by J.P. Hartley - Being obsessed with various fashion magazines can be an expensive habit, but it's definitely worth it when you get a few hundred pages of some of the world's most bad-ass individuals in the creative industry, which is why we love the magazine so much. These books are also great pool-side reads. Whilst one is compiled of great short stories which offer a sense of humour, emotion and realism, the other is more of a classic and tells a less conventional love story.
Room Diffuser (Primark) and Cacti (Homebase) - In the process of redecorating my room, I have been eager to find small bits here and there to make the room look as aesthetically pleasing and worthy of a Tumblr feature as possible. These items are inexpensive and, personally, they add quite a cool touch if your room follows some sort of minimal/monochrome theme.
