Twinning With Navabi

These outfits are gifted*

Summer is approaching and thank goodness for that because there is only so much more of this cold weather I can tolerate! We’re slap bang in the middle of May and usually we would start to see the blooming of flowers, clear blue skies and the temperature rising. I like to make the most of the good days when they come around and recently I had the perfect outfit to wear for such an occasion, in fact both Hanna and I did! We were recently sent some items from navabi; the idea was to see how an outfit would look on two women who are slightly different shape and as Hanna and I also come in different complexions we thought this might add a little something to the look…

Everyone wants the perfect pair of jeans and most would say that you can’t go wrong with a pair of Levi’s, for the first time in forever I can finally say I own a pair from the legendary brand! I will say, after having worn a pair myself I can most definitely see what all the hype is about! Their shaping super skinny jeans do just that! It’s great to have a perfect pair of light blue jeans for the summer that mould, sculpt and lift your behind. I love wearing light blue or acid wash jeans in the summer as the colour isn’t so harsh against the pastel offerings that the season brings and they work with a multitude of items. The quality of these jeans is second to none and I can tell that this is a pair that will most likely stay in great condition for many years to come! I love the distressed features and the power blue colour.

We thought it would be fun to select a top that would fair perfectly to a festival, beach party or summer barbecue and pick a cream coloured top with crochet detail. Zizzi had a really cute top that we just had to try. The fluted sleeves with their crochet detail make this one feel really light and airy and would be a really nice option on a more humid and hot day. With a plunging neckline this one can be worn a little lower to reveal a hint of cleavage and a nice viewing of the decolletage but this is an option that still remains modest and casual.

Hanna and I decided to wear different styles of shoe. I opted for my ash grey brogues from Hotter for a comfortable and casual feel. Hanna opted for a pair of sandy coloured boots. Heels are great with a hot pair of jeans as they can elongate the legs, this not only gives height but also helps to showcase the curvature of the legs. Flat shoes like I have worn here are a lot more comfortable for walking in but make the look a little less sexy and more practical.

It’s not often that I own the exact same outfit as one of my friends, Hanna and I borrow each other’s items from time to time. As friends, neighbours and wearing many things the same size I have enjoyed this as I never had friends I could share clothes with in my teens. Now that Hanna and I share a flat this is something made a lot easier but we still have those items that are just too good to share and so there are times when we both have bought something lol. The cool thing is that 2 women can wear the exact same outfit and both bring a slightly different swag and feel to the look. Varying body types, hair styles, skin tones and even make up techniques can make someone in a uniformed situation still have their own personality that shines through.

Remember whatever you do, feel fabulous in it and do it with a smile!
