August favorites

Shoes from Minnetonka, shirt from American Eagle, shorts are DIYed, glasses from Red Pineapple, earrings from a local art sale. 
 These five items have by far been my favorites this month. The shorts, which I found in a thrift shop and simply cut off, have been my prized possession this summer. I've worn them countless times. I had been wanting a pair of sandals like these for the longest time before I finally got them, and was very satisfied when I did. They have a moccasin like look to them, which I love. This shirt has been another of my most worn pieces this past month. It's simple, and white, which means that it goes with about everything. I've had these earrings for years, but just recently started wearing them a lot. Then last but not least, the glasses. I found these in a cute little boutique in St. Augustine called Red Pineapple and simply fell in love. They're just so cute! Sadly, I haven't worn them nearly as much as I would have liked to. I'm sure that the sun will still be shining in the next few months to come so I'll be sure to wear them more often :) -Vilda

Quick Outfit!

Gap Sweater, Urban Outfitters Tee, BDG Shorts, Spinning ring, ring, pin and bracelet are heirloom, Converse Shoes
Hey Guys! Here's a quickie little outfit post of my comfy after-school outfit for the day. I went shopping in my mom's closet today, and found this beauty that she bought while I was away this summer, so I borrowed it, and I'm doubting she'll get it back... Vilda's due over at my house soon, so we can have a (much needed) girls' night in. Pictures soon! 
Kisses, Helena

Cozy night :)

Hi lovelies :) I've been so busy lately that I haven't gotten any time for myself at all, so that's what I focused on today. Don't get me wrong, I still had a load of homework to do, but I managed to slip some quality "me time" in my crazy schedule, along with some long overdue family time. It was really nice to just relax and not have to think so much! I'm gonna try to get to bed early tonight, but I hope that you're all doing well. Oh, and  a piece of advice for those of you that started school recently as well, sometimes it's important to just put everything aside and focus on yourself. Goodnight <3

Our awful uniform

The uniform at my school is something that I've always kind of looked forward to having, but now I absolutely hate it. We have to wear either black or khaki bottoms and either white or black polo shirts. In the past few years they've been very lenient when it came to the uniform, letting students really push the boundaries and add color to their outfits with cute accessories, but now we can't even wear colored socks! It's awful. They're getting many complaints from parents though, so you'll probably be seeing me wearing cuter outfits in a few months or so.
As you can see, there's not much color involved here...its so boring. I guess I'll have to live with it for now, but knowing me I'll find some way to bend the rules and wear what I want ;)


So, first and foremost, let me apologize for being so absent this past week. Let's just say my first week back to school was far from easy. My life has been a total mess lately, but I feel myself starting to gain control again. I was stressing myself out way too much, and lost sight of my need to just step back and breathe. I've been carrying around alot of big decisions and unfinished plans around on my chest, and school has only added to the burden. This morning though, after I woke up at a quarter to six to finish my book, I just said "to hell with it" and went back to bed. I accepted that maybe I hadn't planned it the best, and procrastinated too much, but at this point, I couldn't do much about it and I would have to just take my zero. The test went well, it wasn't actually that bad. I think realizing that I needed to stop worrying and step back a minute really put a lot into persepctive, and I feel much better. Now, it's almost Friday, and on Monday I'll be traveling back home to Denmark for my father's wedding. The plans are finalized, and I feel relaxed. Now, all I have to remember is to breathe once in a while. Which, is what I'm off to do now! I've got a cup of tea, and my plan is to just lay in bed and finally catch up on Pretty Little Liars. 
kisses, Helena.

New In!

Hi Again! I wanted to share with you you a couple of things I've added to my wardrobe in the past days. My mom and I finally bought my Converse, that I've been drooling over for a while! I'm super happy! The shirt was a wonderful gift from our even more wonderful friend Jordan, he saw it in a boutique downtown and thought of me. I'm so happy about it! I wish you could see it in pictures, but it actually has sleeves with a shoulder cutout, that you can tuck in if you'd like. I'm hoping I can get away with wearing it to school. I found all of the wonderful jewelry after raiding my mother's jewelery box. The rings are both heirlooms from my great grandmother, and the daisy bracelet is actually mine, from when I was an infant. I'm planning on getting some chain and breaking out my old jewelery making skills to add some length to it, so I can actually wear it. There you go!

Good morning!

Good morning sweeties :) I managed to get a good seven hours of sleep last night. I haven't gotten nearly enough sleep in the past few days now that I have to get up so early. Here are a few quick pictures that I took for you guys of my outfit today. It's not too exciting since I have to wear a uniform for my school, which I'll explain more about when I get home. I hope everyone has a lovely day! -Vilda
Polo from Aeropostale (EW), skirt from Forever 21, shoes from Minnetonka, the necklace is from a local boutique

My apologies!

Hello darlings! How is everyone? First of all, I wanted to apologize for not posting yet this week. I've been meaning to, but I've just been so busy! Now that I got the first few days out of the way I think I've gotten the hang of better time management, which means you'll be hearing from me more often! Anyways, I really love my new school! It's a great environment and I really think I'll enjoy most of my four years there. I better get back to my homework, but here are some picture of some new items I just invested in! Much love, Vilda :)
Cropped black pants from Urban Outfitters
Lunch bag from Papaya
Shirt from Urban Outfitters
EOS chapstick and Boi-ing concealer from Benefit. This concealer seriously works wonders and only costs $20. I would definitely suggest getting this!

A New Beginning

I'll be getting up bright and early tomorrow morning for my first day of high school. You'd think that I'd be nervous, but for some strange reason I'm not. I think I'm mostly excited, not necessarily because of the fact that I'm starting school but because it gives me a chance to start fresh...with everything. I've decided that this year I'm going to be organized, stop being such a procrastinator, be healthy, and run as often as I can. I feel like I've said that plenty of times before...hehe, oh well. Maybe I'll actually stick to it this time. I should probably get to bed though, goodnight loves :) -Vilda

My Day Today

Hi Lovelies! 
Sorry I haven't posted in a while. My life has just been crazy. Today I've been driving around town all day long, and I didn't get to take an outfit pic for you guys before the sun went down, which is why you're just getting this old, bad-quality picture of me ;) Anyways, I was driving all around town looking for school supplies, being the procrastinator that I am, I hadn't bought as much as a pencil until today. I didn't get it all, but I got most of the necessities. Pics later? Also, on the plus side, My mom bought me the white low-top Converse that I've been drooling over for months!! There will be a New-In post coming your way in a little bit. Well, I'm off to go read some more of my U.S. History book, that I still haven't finished... sigh.
- Kisses, Helena


Here's a quick outfit post for you guys. You'll have to excuse the crappy quality of the pictures, I took them with my phone. I still have a few things to do tonight to prepare for tomorrow, and then I'll be off to bed. Kisses! -Vilda

Shirt from American Eagle, shorts are homemade, shoes from Minnetonka.

Lust List

Lust List

Hey guys, so, in the midst of my extreme cram physco mode reading session, I found time to give you guys a little polyvore. These are the items currently on my "lust list" as I like to call it, my list for items that I'm lusting over in the moment, but won't necessarily buy because of the price range. Wouldn't life be perfect if I could just push a button and receive all the amazing things I want right now? Reality check, I'm poor. Oh well.

Today's Outfits

On Vilda: Urban Outfitters Dress, H&M Bracelet, Don Donna Clogs On Helena: Forever 21 Dress, Kimchi Blue Heels, Francesca's Collection Earrings, Rings are heirlooms
Hi again lovelies!! So today we were reunited, after a short separation of about two days. We both went to our separate open houses for our school, it was nice to see people again, but a little overwhelming. Vilda is super excited to start school, and I'm, well, not looking forward to it as much. You might not be hearing much from me in the next few days, because I've screwed my summer reading assignment up, and as a result, have to read two books and fifteen  chapters of a textbook for my AP U.S. History class. So, I'll pretty much be hibernating in my room wearing sweatpants and reading for the rest of my holiday. On the bright side, we both looked super cute today!  Well, it's off to bed for me! Goodnight! 
-XO Helena


Hi guys! So, today after we went to Open House for our school, we made Swedish cinnamon buns, called Kanelbullar, or Kanelsnegle in Danish. They turned out AMAZING! It was nice to get a taste of home, after the overwhelming excitement at open house. 
Much Love, Vilda & Helena

I finally finished a task that's been long overdue: cleaning out my closet. Its something that I've been putting off for months now, and considering the fact that I haven't had any major plans for the past few days I felt that it was suiting. At first I was having trouble getting rid of everything, like usual. I put almost every clothing item that I was unsure about in the "maybe pile" and then ended up trying it all on. Yes, it was a waste of time, but it got the job done! Even though I hardly have anything to wear anymore, I still have no regrets!
But how was everyone's day? Mine was pretty boring. I've basically done nothing all day. I'm currently sitting at the dinner table waiting for dinner, I'm starving. The timer for the food actually just went off, so I'm gonna go enjoy my mom's homemade quiche :) Much love, Vilda.


Potter's Pot Blouse, Divine Rights of Denim Jeans, A.N.A Wedges, Rings and pin are heirlooms
Hey Loves! Here's a little outfit post for you guys, please excuse the awful lighting, but right now, I don't feel like I've got control over anything, so this'll have to do.

Fall Cravings

Fall Cravings

Here are a few items that I'm planning on adding to my closet for the fall. I can't wait for it to be cold enough to start wearing jeans and sweaters again! Knowing Savannah that won't be for a while though. Oh well, a girl can dream.
