Sister Style: Sunshine Hours

Sister style with ElsieElsie Larson of A Beautiful MessAviator sunglassesSummer style with A Beautiful MessElsie LarsonSister styleOne of the best things about this time of year is the increase in sunshine hours. ๐Ÿ™‚ The days feel like they go on forever. During the winter months the sun will set as early as 5pm, while currently we might still be wearing sunglasses at 8pm. Yay for extra hours of sunshine! I've heard that the sun provides vitamins and, in turn, good vibes. I'm pretty sure that's the scientific term for it, "good vibes." We shot these photos the other day around 6pm before a family dinner, and look as bright and cheery as it still was. (P.S. I think I might be easily impressed by things…)

  • how do you take such beautiful photos?
    let me know if u guys like my blog.

  • Sunshine and good vibes – summer perfection.
    Great looks! I’m loving Emma’s dress because it’s so flattering on her.


  • I love the summer for that same reason! The days seem so long, and like you have all the time in the world! I can’t get over how cute those red high-wasted shorts are!

  • Tights and shorts have been my life story this summer but it’s so hot right now, I can’t imagine throwing on some tights. Also Emma’s dress is killer.

  • such a nice outfit (the first one). excluding the shoes. i cannot say, that i like them ๐Ÿ˜‰

    have fun.


  • Fun dress Emma! But Elsie, aren’t you hot in those tights? Ahhh, brave lady.


  • You guys both look great but you know what’s funny, I have been an avid follower of this blog for almost 2 years now and I’ve gone through archives, relived fave posts, come to you guys for inspiration etc but never once noticed the uncanny resemblance between you guys, I’ve always thought that as sisters you had very different looks and but when i saw the first pic of Elsie, I thought Emma had dyed her hair black, it might be the angle or I dunno what but I just couldn’t see that it was Elsie xx

  • We prefer black for winter but with the heat, colours!

  • Elsie, your style is so close to mine, it hurts! Love the shorts ๐Ÿ™‚

  • OMG Emma this dress is absolutely wonderful!! I love Shopsosie already but even more now! So lovely design and this color, yummy!!
    And Elsie the way you wear that hat makes me want to give mine another chance! (everyone says I have the right head for hats but I always had a doubt and don’t feel so confident with them…) time to change that!
    Have a lovely weekend girls!

  • I adore Swedish Hasbeens! Want a pair so badly.

  • elsie, I think this is the best outfit you have ever posted on your blog!

  • the red shorts are so cute! You have to mention where you got them. Gorgeous.

  • Love the outfits! ๐Ÿ™‚ Where I live it never really gets dark during the summer months (the sun sets right before midnight, and rise around three in the morning), but in the winter it’s dark almost all the time. So I love the sunshine hours during summer too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • love these types of posts, you both look so pretty!


    I’m currently running a giveaway of glasses and sunglasses here

  • A trench-dress, now that’s pretty rad Emma! I’m going for a 6 week holiday will trade colder winter months of Australia for summer and sunshine adventures in Europe – sooo excited! Best things of all is I’ll spend some quality time with my sister. Every time I read your blog I always miss my sister even more…

  • While the black and red outfit is incredibly cute, to me all I could focus on was that hat, I love it. The lavendar trench style dress is my favorite though, its beautiful, I wish it was in my closet. The hue, the size of the buttons, everything about it is just gorgeous and looked really great with those sandals. Thanks for posting them.

  • Emma, do you get you get your hair done by a stylist or do you DIY? Either way it looks fantastic! xx

  • One of my favorite outfit posts by you two. Elsie, I would totally wear yours! Right up my alley. I also love the hair change ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Love the red shorts and Emma’s whole look! Such wonderful style, as per usual! (:

  • Yess!! I love how that dress looks like a trench in the front but in the back it gives you a little peakaboo of skin! Perf!

  • Love both of these outfits (and the idea of long hours of sunshine too!) Great photos. I am checking out shopsosie right now.


    Vanessa @ pretty little ivy

  • LOVE your shirt, Elsie! Anything with horses needs to be in my life. ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Elsie your style is soon me, love it! Emma, you always remind me of a sexy 70s Bond girl ! Keep up the sister stylez ?

  • Such cute outfits! I love the red shorts and the Swedish Hasbeens! I’ve been living in mine this summer.


  • I dig your shorts, woman.

  • I love those red shorts paired with that printed top, and the small details like the bangle pushed up your arm. That trench coat dress is absolutely amazing!! You girls always look so lovely.

  • you guys are too cute!

  • Cute hat Elsie!

  • Gorgeous as always ladies. You’re rocking that hat, Elsie!

  • You rocked those outfits! I love every bit of it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Loving the tops/shorts combo, Elsie! And Emma, that dress is pretty boss!


  • Elsie, I’m in love with your outfit. I have a great love for hats and that hat pulled your outfit together perfectly! Emma, you look darling, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Looking cute girlies! The extra sunshine hours are my absolute favourite thing about summer. I just love the light! I always find that in the winter when it gets dark before I’ve even finished work it just puts me in the worst mood! The light evenings have the opposite effect ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Here’s a practical question for Elsie: do you stay in the shorts + tights combination all day long? I’ve often thought it’s a cute pairing but couldn’t possibly bear to wear tights in the humidity of a DC summer!

  • I love the black and white pictures! Also the last one is one of my favs! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • LOVE those red shorts, I really want a pair!!! They look gorgeous on you!

  • Both of you look stunning, I love the back of Emma’s dress ๐Ÿ™‚ Are you growing your fringe out Elsie?
