It’s National Ice Cream month – didn’t you know?

Since infancy, I’ve maintained an affinity for mint chocolate chip ice cream. While my appreciation for the flavour might stem from an infatuation with the perfectly pastel colouring, an inherent…peaceful quality to all things mint-flavoured(???)…also lends itself well to my treat consumption patterns.

In celebration of our favourite summertime snack (and in celebration of summer in general), we decided there would be nothing better than heaping piles of mint ice cream to accompany our mint outfits. And while the cones may be MIA from these photos, trust us when we say that they existed (though they didn’t last long).



Kastor & Pollux x Intermix: Pt. 2

DANI: Stella McCartney hat, 10 Crosby Derek Lam dress (buy here), Shellys London shoes
BIANCA: 10 Crosby Derek Lam shirt (buy here), Rag & Bone pants (buy here), Call It Spring shoes

 

When it comes to posing in dark abysses, you better believe that we bring ~da sass~. Questionable? Maybe. But while things may be hectic, that doesn’t mean we can’t throw on a pseduo-bucket hat and (try and) W E R K.

Though we’ve been practicing the art of cross-coordination since time, we’ve never found a match in heathered grey heaven quite like this Stella McCartney head companion and this split tank top by way of 10 Crosby Derek Lam. OoooO DUALITY. oooooOOoo FASHION.



SUPER SUNNIES: 2 DIYs with Call It Spring

 
Since we have a penchant for anything a lil’ kookier than your average, we took it upon ourselves to jazz up two pairs of sunnies from Call It Spring. Though they were fun, candy-coloured numbers on their own, all we needed was a little time and nail polish to kick them up a notch. So grab your CrEaTiViTy HaTz, boys and girls, we’re goin’ on a DIY adventure!!!!!!!!!!!
 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Call It Spring sunglasses with a thicker frame
- Masking or painter’s tape
- X-acto knife
- White nail polish
- Scissors
- Black nail polish
 

STEP 1:
Completely cover the lenses in tape
 

STEP 2:
Use an X-acto knife to trim the excess
 

STEP 3:
Coat the frames in 3 layers of white nail polish. Be sure to wait for each layer to dry before applying a new one!
 

STEP 4:
Cut 4-inch pieces of tape lengthwise into thinner strips.
 

STEP 5:
Space the tape strips equally across the dried frames.
 

STEP 6:
Coat the exposed parts with black nail polish.
 

STEP 7:
Carefully peel off the tape. We didn’t wait for the black nail polish to dry to avoid cracking or chipping. You can also touch up any stray marks using nail polish remover.
 

STEP 8:
Set the sunglasses to dry before wear — preferably surrounded by plastic flowers because #cute.
 

 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Call It Spring sunglasses with a thicker frame
- Masking or painter’s tape

STEP 2:
Break apart the costume jewellery using scissors.
 

STEP 3:
Use a glue gun to begin a floral collage of sorts.
 

STEP 4:
Coat the frames in 3 heavy layers of white nail polish. Be sure to wait for each layer to dry before applying a new one!
 

STEP 5:
Carefully peel off the tape. You can also touch up any stray marks using nail polish remover.
 

STEP 6:
Set the sunglasses to dry before wear. We put ours on a decorative porcelain skull because #interiordesign.
 

Now you’ve got two pairs of funky eyewear to protect your peepers ~in style~. Long gone are the days of squinting in the sun and causing damage to your corneas. You’re welcome!!! We love you too!!!



~PARTY NAILZ~ with Forever 21

Nail art has always been a strange and uncharted realm for Danielle and I — we’re more of the solid, neutral polish types. However, we’ve been dressing quite #minimalistic as of late, meaning our inherent quirkiness needs to surface in some way or another. Enter Forever 21′s KoOkY nail options — sure to put the *fun* in a *functional* look by way of confetti, glitter, and other childlike things we may or may not thoroughly enjoy on our 22-year-old fingertips.

This past weekend, we stocked up on nail colours and accessories to bring you a quick and easy way to jazz up yo digitz. YOU’RE WELCOME.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Some kind of base colour nail polish (we chose one that reminds us of Dunkaroos because #maturity)
- Nail decorations
- A pair o tweezers
- A clear top coat
 

STEP 1:
Apply yo base colour
 

STEP 2:
Apply yo base colour again
 

STEP 3:
Take yo tweezers n carefully pick up yo lil’ confetti circles or rhinestones or whatever
 

STEP 4:
Marvel at your mad skills and repeat steps 3-4 until you’re really feeling accomplished
 

STEP 5:
Apply yo top coat
 

STEP 6:
Hold your nail polish bottle and take a quintessential nail art photo for your Instagram
 

So there you have it, boys and girls. Dazzling nails for a dazzling human. Life changing — we know.
