Gowanus

Hey hey! The other day we were passing by the Gowanus Canal and decided to take some pictures. The Gowanus Canal is a Superfund site located near where we live, but it used to be one of the most important waterways in New York City during the Industrial Era. Formerly called Lavender Lake due to the colors the paint factory would change the water, it’s now a constant dark green color, and it’s egg smell is gone as well. Government dollars are being put to good use! I digress… below are our outfits from that day, ENJOY!

For the Love of Headbands

Hi!

Sorry we’ve been gone for so long. This isn’t an outfit post but it is a post about springtime accessories. Wearing the hijab can sometimes get kinda boring, sure you change up your scarf and the way you wear it, but sometimes that’s not enough. A cool way to add some more dimension to your outfit is to add a headband.

Tiana currently has a few headbands that she rotates throughout the week and her collection is slowly but surely growing! I’m not quite a fan of headbands yet, but I’ll get there eventually I’m sure.

 

Below are links to some headbands that we like, hope you enjoy!

Twinning in 2015

First off, Happy New Year!We hope you all enjoyed bringing in the new year with people closest to you.

Now down to business. So……this is what happens when you’ve been best friends as long as we have. You start to dress alike. In this case, we basically wore the same outfit with slight variations. You’ll see what we mean in a second. We bought these vests from Necessary Clothing 2 summers ago and it’s a piece we recycle pretty frequently because of its versatility. Army green and burgundy are 2 pretty important colors for fall and they’re easier to style than you would think. Stripes and army green automatically make it a military inspired look so Tiana added combat boots, burgundy scarf and lips while Jay opted for overalls and burgundy ankle boots. Having a month off from school just has Tiana all kinds of excited and goofy. Jay, not so much….

As always, enjoy!

Just Dance!

Disclaimer: this post is PHOTO HEAVY

Ever feel the need to just get up and dance? We did, and we took some photos while we were at it! The weather today was nice, but a little chilly so it was time to layer up; my favorite part of fall to be honest. I’d much rather be hot than cold, Jay on the other hand would prefer to be hot over cold any day. As always, enjoy!
