Sister Style: The Blues

Sister Style www.abeautifulmess.comSister Style www.abeautifulmess.comSister Style www.abeautifulmess.comMojito Cupcake!Recently I've been putting together my closet. We did a little renovating in there recently (hello, new shelves!), and now I'm putting pieces back in, getting one last chance to purge items. This past year my style changed a lot, and I've been working on rebuilding a wardrobe that's full of clothes I want to wear over and over. And you know what? I noticed something. I LOVE blue and red. Those two colors make up the majority of the colorful clothing in my closet. It was totally unintentional, but those are my colors! What are your go to colors for fashion? 

Elsie's Wearing: Dress/Lauren Moffatt (it was a gift and I LOVE it!), Hat/flea market find, Wedges c/o Toms (they're insanely comfortable, by the way!).Sister Style Sister Style Sister Style Sister Style Emma's Wearing: shirt/thrifted, skirt/vintage, shoes c/o BC Footwear, hat/borrowed from sister and purse c/o Tailor and Stylist.

XOXO! Elsie + Emma

ps. I almost forgot to mention… our yummy cupcakes are from Gigi's. They're Mojito and Chocolate Chip Cookie flavors. 

  • I love pairing blue and red (without looking too patriotic)! Red dress/blue shoes and vice versa…I’ve been searching for cobalt blue flats!

  • Gorgeous outfits! And those cupcakes.. *AMAZING*!


  • really cute dress!

  • I`m such a fan of u guys and since I read this post I enter App Store twice a day to see if the app is already available to buy. Please, tell me the name of the app and when it will be available?

    Thank u <3


  • Elsie, I LOVE the back of your dress!! SOOOO unique. My colors are mainly greens and red. I am drawn to those colors!

  • Hi girls! I loooove your posts about your homes (you both have a wonderful taste!) and I wondered, seeing you fashion post and reading this one, if you planned on showing your dressings? It would be nice to see how you organised them, I’m sure they are pretty 😉

  • I have noticed so many changes in my wardrobe. I think I am finally comfortable in 98% of my clothes, the rest are sentimental pieces that I just can’t throw away yet…

  • Elsie you look amazing and love your tattoos. And now I want some cupcakes 🙁

  • That blue dress is so pretty! My go to colors are probably black and red (very often as a combination)and dark green.

  • Blue is my favorite, but in more recent years I have moved into a lot of neutrals (great for outfit making!). Coral and mint are two of my favorite pops of color for clothing right now!


  • Yummm! I can’t stop looking at those cupcakes! 😛
    Love your outfits too 🙂

  • Elsie I love love love your outfit, it’s perfect! Your hair looks great too 🙂

  • You Ladies are too cute. Red & Blue are totally my colors too! (very beachie / sailorie on my end) But this past year I have added lot’s of mint green to my wardrobe. (looks great with navy blue)

  • YUM! I love Gigis!
    I have a lot of black, white, and yellow in my closet.

    Elsie, I love the back of your dress!

  • Elsie… in that picture where you can see your shoes, you look EXACTLY like Zooey Deschanel!!! I did a double take!!
    Since I chopped off all my hair (which I’m now desperately trying to grow back!), my favourite colour has gone from pink to blue… I love it. Needless to say, I love these outfits 😉

  • Emma’s outfit is amazing!!!!!!!<3
    Once again, a great faashion-sister style post! 🙂

  • I love Emma’s maxi skirt and the back of your dress, Elsie!


  • this is so lovely! love the prints on both of the outfits<3

  • Not sure what I love more… those outfits, or the mouthwatering cupcakes. Either way, I’m titillated.

  • Great outfits… You look so nice!


  • I am always drawn to greens. My name is Jade so I’ve always had an attachment to it 🙂

  • i’ve found myself drawn to corals and minty greens/blues – along with black, white, and tan! love my neutrals!

    those cupcakes look fantastic. love the blue outfits


  • LOVE both outfits. That skirt is insanely awesome and that back of the dress is so pretty!


  • The back of the dress is so pretty, Elsie! Love Emma’s outfit. It used to seem that I only wore black and grey, so I purposely made myself quite buying those, and forced myself to start buying color. So it’s kind of a hodge podge rainbow right now as I’m still trying to figure out what colors I look good in. But I do know I love bright green. 🙂


  • Emma, your skirt is fabulous!! Oh my goodness.

    You guys should try the Midnight Magic and the oreo flavored cupcake! We have a couple Gigi’s in Atlanta and they’re the best!

  • OMG! You two are adorable as always! But that last cupcake! Yummmmmmmm! What flavor is that?! And is that a cookie in it?

  • Look at that cupcake. It looks big enough for a family of four 🙂 but I think i would want to eat it all myself!


  • Oh my goodness I love love both of your outfits! You are both stunning in blue!

  • I love both of these outfits!! I think my two “colors” are blue and brown. Lots of both in my closet!


  • Elsie!!! I never noticed your polaroid camera tattoo!! that is so cute. my parents own two and were going to sell them, so I purchased them from them. I always had fond memories of those photos as a kid and i’m soo excited to use it. I’m also looking forward to that android photo app. 🙂 you & emma keep doin what your doin, cause its totally working. 🙂

  • I really love red too! I think the red shoes would be a perfect addition to any wardrobe.

  • LOVE the back of your dress Elsie!

  • JUST got some cupcakes from Gigi’s this last weekend for my BFF’s birthday! SO amzing! I was actually on my way to get a sprinkles cupcake for her and I passed by Gigi’s on the way. I wasn’t about to drive another 20+ min for Sprinkles, so I stopped in. I’m so glad I did! I had the midnight chocolate chip, it was amazing! I got my BFF the Creamsicle and the Dark Chocolat and Caramel with sea salt on top. She loved them both!

  • You two are so unbelievably pretty! I wish I had a sister, you have the nicest relationship 🙂

  • Loving blues for this season, looking lovely girls!

  • The back of Elsie’s dress is WICKED awesome! I just became a North Eastern for that comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oh my gosh! I loooove both of your outfits! xx

  • I need a cupcake like that for a day like today, gosh! It looks like just the thing to cure being yelled at by a mean customer.
    Anyway, I LOVE both of your outfits as usual. Elsie’s dress is so, so gorgeous and it looks just like something I would wear, and Emma looks so cool and chic with the maxi skirt and pattern mixing! You are both so pretty!

  • I had no idea Toms made wedges…cool!

    You both have such fun style! I love seeing it on here!



  • you guys have the best style!
    love the camera tattoo by the way 🙂

  • I notice you mention another closet purge and trying to find clothes that you want to wear. Is their any chance of a post on how to avoid letting weird unwearables into your wardrobe in the first place? I know style changes but as I am putting stuff in the goodwill bag I keep wondering “Why on earth did I buy this?”

  • I love the dresses!

    Check out my OPI nail polish giveaway!

  • My closet is full of navy blue and pink. Which is so fun because they’re my favorite colors! I love the details on your dress, Elsie.


  • These cupcakes look so tasty! I love the shoes, I was wondering if you have any tips on getting used to wearing heels, since I’ve noticed you wear them so much? I’m super short (5’2) and I should wear heels, but I don’t unless I’m on a night out, as I don’t feel that confident in them!! Advice or even a post on this would be great!

  • Elsie, I ADORE your tattoos! And they fit you so well 🙂

  • Adorable style– the looks you two put together are always surprising but so cute!
    My go-to color is definitely black. Which is ironic because my house is so colorful! Maybe I’m subconsciously trying to balance it all out between wardrobe and decor

  • I’m so in love with your outfit Elsie! Those cupcakes look so yummy!!

  • Loving the skirt, Emma !

    Love from Paris

  • you both look amazing ladies! xx

  • Ohhh I love all the blue!

  • Looking beautiful as ever girls – I am in love with your tattoos Elsie!
    I think my ‘go to’ colours are black and white (if they count as colours?!) with the occasional pop of mustard, deep purple, or forest green.
    My best friend is a sucker for burgundy – can’t resist anything that colour!

  • I love your style, they are so nice and original!!


  • I’m in love with Emma’s skirt. My colours are green and brown <3 earthy colours

  • you both are stunning!
    the cupcakes looks delicious!

  • You and your sister are so beautiful and have such amazing style! If my blog even gets a fraction of your success i’d be ecstatic! LOVE reading your posts so much, thank you!!!

  • Woow, that long skirt is amazing. But you both look great. xaxa.

  • Those cupcakes look amazing. Also, I love the detail on the back of your dress, Elsie!

    My favourite colours to wear: cobalt blue, teal, yellow ocher, mint green, burgundy and blush!

  • Adore the dress!! So, so beautiful and quirky! Love Emma’s bag too! xx

  • adorable! love emma’s skirt, especially. my go-to color is mustard yellow, i just adore it on anything & everything 🙂 i’d love to love red, too, but since my hair is a bright bright red, i just feel like i can’t wear it as much.

  • Blue and red are my favorite colors, too! And I’m seeing so many blue/black/white combinations in all the Parisian boutiques this Spring! It is definitely the combo of the season!

    Super jolie 🙂
    Smiles and all the best,

  • Both looks are equally adorable. I love the mix of plaid with the patterned skirt!


  • I love your dress! Purging clothes can be so awesome! And slightly embarrassing 🙂

    And those cupcakes look deeelicious!

  • OMIGOSH. I seriously love Elsie’s shoes, and Emma’s outfit.
    Gah, they’re so cute!
