School Style ;)

Long time no blog post, huh?! Myself and Ellie have been so, super busy with absolutely everything, and as much as we have been meaning to do a couple of posts, we have just never got around to it ... SORRY! Anyways, who is excited for Christmas?! We are, and we have a post dedicated to Christmas coming up after this one, so if you fancy it, have a read! Back to this post... As you may have gathered, Ellie and I are only 15 and we live in quite a small town which doesn't experience many new, exciting things (the only thing we can think of is that this year we have an ice-rink in the town centre). So we don't really get the opportunity to do any posts on things we see during our day-to-day lives. And as much as we are grateful for everything that we get to experience and do, because of our limited age, we have to plan most of our events. Therefore, this is why we have decided to this post - our version of Street Style! About 2 weeks ago (see what I mean with being busy?!) our school held a wear what you want day. However, as it was a charity event, we had to wear white or a silly hat. Although, I don't think many people did! Myself and Ellie decided that we would use this opportunity to take a look at some peoples outfits, and if we liked them we'd ask them if it was ok to take a picture of it and upload it on to our blog. Thankfully, our school is full of lovely people who were fine with having their photo taken by us both to use :) Unfortunately, we both had loads to do during this particular day at break and lunch, so we didn't get as many photies as we would have liked, but we are happy with the ones that we got :) Here it goes! First up is Liv.
Ellie and I liked her outfit because it's simple, but with the detailing on her scarf and shiny hand duo it makes it slightly different. We both love the leather sleeves on Livs jacket, and I’m not sure how well you can see it, but the cranberry red coloured jumper/top she wore with the forest green jacket really work well together and are perfect for this season. We were both besotted by her nails and ring! Like most girls, we love a bit of sparkle so we really love it on Livs nails. Her Swarovski ring is BEAUTIFUL! And the slight pink tone matches her cute boat style shoes (which you can see in the pictures, sort of!) Ellie and I were both surprised by how much we love the skull patterns this year. Ellie is a bit more experimental with patterns than I am, however, during the summer we both fell in love with the edgy skulls and roses pattern, so we loved Livs scarf and think it goes perfectly with her outfit adding a slight girly touch with the pink on it matching her ring and shoes :) Next up are Cathy, Marissa and James. Marissa is the organizer of the wear what you want day and said that she felt the need to make the day a bit silly (hence the silly hats we were told to wear!)
We really liked Cathys necklace, as we said we like a bit of sparkle, and we like the way our attention was drawn to her necklace under Cathys atumn toned outfit.
Ellie also has the skirt that Marissa is wearing here. We pointed out to Marissa that we liked it that she paired the outfit with a brown belt rather than a black belt. We thought that a black belt would have looked nice as it would have matched her top and skirt, but we were super happy that she chose brown as it looks lovely with the colours on her skirt -even though her Mum told her she should have worn black- and because it "makes the outfit" (and because it is what we would have chosen!)
Marissa said that she chose this skirt to add a bit of colour to the season, hehe! We love Marissa! We also like the lace detailing on her River Island top with the velvet collar. It's very pretty :)
We really liked James' hat and pattern on his jumper.
It may look sunny on the photos, but it was FREEZING that day. So James' outfit choice was perfect for the weather :) Ellie is always wearing hats similar to James' and she always looks so cute. I really need to invest in one! Next up is Harriet’s outfit. Bless her she is one crutches :( Hope your feeling better Harriet!
Ellie and myself both love her studded jacket. She also has studs on the collar of her top. We both love the wear a jumper over a collard top look! To accessorize her outfit, Harriet chose this fun headband and bracelet. We love them both! I love to experiment with different hair accessories, and Ellie is good with cute clips as well, so we now both really want a headband similar to Harriett’s. We saw them in River Island AGES ago, we just never got round to buying one :(
Myself and Ellie think that bracelets are so much fun to use when accessorizing and outfit - do you agree? - we love to layer them up or just have one or two simple, dainty ones. They really add detail to an outfit, in our opinion, and they are so easy to just whack on! So they are the piccies we took of a couple of people in our year. Now you get to see what we both wore! Yey! Lucky you ;) Here we are looking very goofy (we just can't take a serious picture!)
We bought part of Ellies outfit in Nottingham earlier this year (you can read about our trip HERE). I love Ellies hat! See, doesn't she really suite them?!
In my opinion, her outfit is very comfy (she even said that herself!) and chilled out - Ellie all over really :)! I really adore all of the colours that she wore! Ellie chose to pair her outfit with her trusty converse. As for myself, I chose to wear this top because I love the velvet detailing on the bow, down the front of the top and on the polka dots on the sleeves.
I love the Victorian style high neck of this top :) This top is out of the Kardashian Kollection from Dorothy Perkins. I chose to finish off the outfit with an American Apparel hoodie (it's the first one I EVER bought! I got it almost 2 years ago! They are such an investment ;) ) and a pair of comfy Supergas. If you want to know where anything that anyone is wearing here is from, then leave a comment and myself and Ellie will be sure to get back to you! What do you think of all of these outfits? Please let us know! Love from Dom&Ellie xx

  3. Hey, I love the photos! I was particularly interested by Harriet's style. I was wondering if there was any way in which I could email her to ask her a few questions. Thanks! :)
