beautiful winter has arrived and brought with it beautiful snow, shimmering like diamonds. as each intricate snowflake falls we take notice in the beauty of God's creation. how fascinating and lovely snow is!
this post is the start of a seasonally annual post we shall do. once spring comes round we'll share with you more inspirational photos, clothing on our wish list, and some of our recent photography--all reflective of the season.
winter fashion is wonderful and we love layering and using glamorous textures and colours. however, we will admit that spring fashion has been on our mind since all the designers and stores have been releasing their spring/summer collections. we've sketched out our clothing wish lists for spring&summer and can't wait to start creating our spring/summer wardrobe once april comes round.
the snow is falling steadily outside the window and we're preparing for a winter photos shoot, our ideas swimming with picture ideas!
so, we both absolutely positively want glasses however, we both have fantastic eyesight and are discouraged that we may never find the need to buy prescription glasses. last year rachel discovered warby parker--this sleek, awesome&fair-priced online glasses store. rachel's sister has glasses and was looking for new frames so she sent in to get the free trial of four pairs for five days. and then it happened, rachel tried on the Miles....and now has discovered "her" pair of glasses. once summer comes round we plan to buy fake glasses that resemble these, we feel that they are such a good accessory that we wouldn't be lame!
the pleasantly precocious top from modcloth is currently on erika's wish list for winter, the simplicity&daintiness is wonderful...peter pan collars essentially define daintiness! and as for rachel she is absolutely loving the tiered peterpan blouse from topshop. the layers are amazing and the dainty collar and brilliant colour are pretty fantastic!
and both of us are completely swooning over this modcloth blogroll dress! it is absolutely adorable. we dream of wearing it with plain oxford shoes&adorable stockings. however, it is quite unfortunate that modcloth is sold out! ah, well, one can dream. :)
we spent last night together taking photos (see photo above and all below) for an hour, blogging, talking&laughing, and officially signing our harry potter film wizardry books, which we each received for Christmas, with rachel's hogwarts quill. it was brilliant!
rachel's room was oh so cosy with artistic trinkets everywhere, feathers and leaves lying about, and white Christmas lights draped over her shelf, shimmering with a glow.
we stayed up last night till nearly 4 in the morning talking and reminiscing of the amazing and absolutely blissful Summer last year, and the generally brilliant whole year. we read particular entries from one another's journals aloud loving hearing of the wonderful times we shared.
we cannot wait to see what this year holds for us, but trust that it will be wonderful! as far as this year has been going along it has been brilliant. good memories have been made (if only 22 days into this year), good pictures have been taken, and beautiful snow has stayed like an icing over a cake!
hope your weekend is magical, loves!♥
