We love the holidays because to us they always mean big celebrations, big holiday dinners and lots of quality time with our families. Another great thing about the holidays is that they’re an awesome excuse to dress up and feel ladylike in our favorite dresses.

Vera wore a lace overlay mint cocktail dress with bow tied kitten heels and silver jewelry.

We’ve been nominated for blogging awards before and never really did anything to participate (don’t hate us!), but this time we were nominated by a blogger we particularly love, the adorable and fabulous Vivian of atouchofvivian, and we just couldn’t resist.

100_33262

Here are Vivian’s questions for us:
When and why did you start blogging?

We started blogging in february 2012, in our senior year of university, after having shared design and fashion ideas with each other for so many years.
We both had so many ideas we wanted to express and share with the world and decided to do that together.

What do you love most about blogging?

We love getting fashion inspiration from interesting people around the world and the amazing feedback we get from our awesome readers! There’s nothing better after all the hard work we put into making our blog interesting.

What’s the story behind the name of your blog?

We were inseparable in university and everyone always used to make fun of us for wearing matching outfits. The funniest thing about it though, was that we did it unintentionally! We just have style telepathy and therefore decided to name our blog “what we wear”.
The url whatwewear was already taken so we had to settle for “Watt”, which is Vera’s last name. So clever, we know ;)

What type of camera do you use for your blog?

We use a Canon Powershot SX 40 HS, which is a good quality camera and certainly good enough for us. We also use a professional tripod so we rarely use photographers. The tripod is like the third lady on our blog, it’s present at all our photo shoots; although we sometimes look a bit silly posing with the timer :)

Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts?

Inspiration is everywhere, in fashion magazines, in movies, in shops, but mostly we are inspired by street styles and by other bloggers.

Who is your fashion inspiration?

We can’t say that we have a single fashion inspiration because we love to combine different looks rather than stick to one style. Some very fashionable women whose styles we love are Olivia Palermo, Anna Dello Russo, Miroslava Duma, and Solange Knowles.

What is your fashion statement?

Dare to wear!

What is your current fashion obsession?

Our current fashion obsession is midi skirts, they are so feminine and ladylike and we love that they are making such a huge comeback. In fact, they’ll be featured on our next post!

What are three things you can’t live without?

Fashionably speaking, mascara, a hot pair of heels and chic dresses. Practically speaking, our families and loved ones are the only thing we absolutely cannot live without.

What is your biggest fashion regret?

We don’t believe in fashion regrets! If you think something is wearable then go for it!

Where do you see the future of your blog going?

Hopefully expanding, working with more designers. We’d love to showcase more of our favorite local talents, as well as work with designers from around the world. And who knows, maybe one day we’ll have our own column in a fabulous fashion magazine!

As per the rules of the blogging awards, we are supposed to nominate 11 other bloggers. We thought it wouldn’t be fair to play a popularity contest and chose only 11 bloggers, especially because there are hundreds who we love and feel inspired by! So we nominate all of you wonderful readers and wish you lots of success and fun on all your blogs!

Thanks again for all your love and support, and thank you Vivian for actually getting us to participate in this :)

Happy Spring beautiful people!
To welcome spring in style we decided to post outfits composed of our favorite trends that ruled the runways at the Spring 2014 shows. Check out our review of our favorite trends this season if you haven’t already.

We loved the flower prints and pastels and particularly loved the bejeweled pieces seen at the hottest shows. As girls who love to accessorize and sometimes take more time to pick out jewelry than the outfit itself, what could be better than clothes that come with their own jewelry?!

IMG_19691

Vera wore a jewel encrusted loose top with a pleated pleather miniskirt, knit cardigan, gray tights, brogues, and a silver and perspex necklace.

IMG_20942 IMG_21041 IMG_21061 IMG_21091 IMG_21471

A light cardigan is an absolute must in every closet as the seasons change.

Rony wore a rhinestones encrusted blouse over a button down shirt with a flower print skirt, gray tights, thigh high boots and a neon clutch.

Not ready to wear short sleeves just yet? Layering is a great way of breaking out your favorite warm weather clothes.

Spring is just around the corner, and as we prepare our wardrobes for warmer weather, it’s important to consider all aspects of what we wear. As you go through your closet, and go shopping for new outfits, be sure to remember to update your underwear drawer, too!

Here are some ideas for ways to bring spring style trends to every aspect of your wardrobe, from your lipstick color and accessories all the way to your bra and panties!

Black and White

Judging by the looks spotted at New York Fashion Week, black and white is still a classic chic look that is here to stay.

To bring that trend into the bedroom, sexy lingerie brand Adam & Eve, points to the Sweet Innocence Babydoll piece, a stunning white babydoll with dramatic black edging.

The beauty of black-and-white lingerie and underwear is in its simplicity. These pieces go with everything, they’re timeless, and, best of all, they’re in season!

Hot Pink and Orange

Remember our tips and picks of the hottest trends of the coming season? Bold bright colors are so hot this spring. Wearing bright undies is a great way to get in the spirit of springtime! Lace bra and pantie sets in one of these two hues are sure to satisfy your craving for the bright flowers of spring and those hot sunny days. We love the lace tie up details on this pair.

More is…More?

Modesty is another lingerie trend this season. Sometimes the more that’s left to the imagination, the more desire is sparked. According to The Lingerie Journal, retro, high waisted, and comfortable is totally in.

Go Sporty

Those thick waistband underwear in bright white? You know, tightie-whities? They can make for some incredibly sexy lingerie. Even the sexy guys at DSquared designed pieces this season that are athletic-inspired.

And let’s be real ladies, we all have those days when we just need to be comfortable all day.

No matter what your tastes are, there is sure to be a 2014 lingerie trend that you’ll love, whether you’re drawn to timeless fashions like black and white, you’re a sporty girl looking to find some comfortable lingerie for the spring, you’re a bold and bright kind of girl, or you love retro.

Circa_1975_WonderbraUnderwear may be hidden under your clothes for the majority of your day (or make out the majority of your outfit if you’re Miley Cyrus)

miley-cyrus-wrecking-ball-video-650-430Miley goes for the Tightie Whitey trend.

but we find that wearing the right lingerie just makes us feel good, both physically and mentally.

Have a lovely, sexy spring everyone!

The flowers are starting to bloom, the sun is coming out to play, spring is coming!! This transition period between winter and spring can be tricky to style because it’s still chilly, especially in the evenings, there are high chances of rain, yet the days get gradually warmer.
Our favorite items to rock during this transition weather are light coats, preferably in our favorite colors and patterns that will be relevant this coming spring season.

IMG_18433 IMG_18421

Rony wore a peach trench coat over a cream playsuit, gray tights, loafer wedges and a gold necklace.

IMG_18671 IMG_18681 IMG_18641 IMG_18601 IMG_19061 IMG_19091 IMG_19111 IMG_19181

Vera wore an ethnic print trench coat over a black puffy skirt, striped top, studded loafers and gold necklace.

IMG_18481 IMG_18521 IMG_18561 IMG_18881 IMG_18931 IMG_18951 IMG_18831 IMG_19011 IMG_19021

The fabulous thing about these coats is that they can be a chic cover up both for day and for evening.

Being the busy, hard working girls we are, we appreciate every second of leisure that we get. Weekends are almost a holy practice to us; we like to take advantage of our weekends by spending time with our loved ones, stocking up on inspiration in museums and exhibits and in the theater, and traveling in Israel and abroad.
As you know, we don’t like to ever compromise our style, but that doesn’t mean we have to compromise our comfort. So what does weekend wear mean for us, you ask?

IMG_17243

Vera wore a flannel shirt with a high waisted peach puffy skirt, knit cardigan, patterned tights, cowboy boots, and ray ban glasses.

IMG_18301 IMG_18321 IMG_18341 IMG_18351 IMG_18241 IMG_17612 IMG_17561 IMG_17621 IMG_17641 IMG_17701 IMG_17731

IMG_17481 IMG_17721

What’s better weekend wear than flannel? make it more stylish by mixing colors and put it together with more feminine pieces, like Vera’s puffy skirt.

IMG_18331

Rony wore a burgundy sweater over a green dress with a patterned scarf, patterned tights, knee-high boots, and a men’s fedora.

IMG_17791 IMG_17781 IMG_17841 IMG_17851

No one said that travel wear has to be boring, make it interesting by mixing vibrant colors and patterns in your clothes and accessories.

IMG_17222

Every outfit has a story: The flannel shirt Vera is wearing is actually a men’s shirt. Vera got her boots on sale in Eilat, a tourist favorite.

IMG_17911

Rony’s tights are from a cool boutique in Jaffa’s flea market, one of our favorite weekend destinations. Her hat is a traditional fedora she got in Ecuador.

IMG_18051

Layering is always a great tip for travel, the layers allow you to be prepared for any weather and any activity.

IMG_17321

The most important item, however, are the shoes. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes so that you can really enjoy your weekend excursions.

Traveling in Israel? Here are some of our favorite destinations and travel recommendations:
Beautiful Rosh Hanikra, Acre, Alexander River, Golan Heights, Ramon Crater in the desert.

If you’re exploring Tel Aviv, here are some must-visit destinations:
White City sculpture garden seen here and here, Tel Aviv Museum of Art (also seen here), Florentine neighborhood for its beautiful street art, Lev Hair Quarter and Chelouche Gallery for beautiful architecture and contemporary art, Litvak Gallery for unique glass art and installations by international artists, Holon Design Museum seen here and here (about 20 minutes outside the city and definitely worth a visit), and of course the beautiful Mediterranean shore.

If you’re here before June 2014, check out this must see street art exhibit. If it’s shopping you’re after, check out Kikar Hamedina.

Have a wonderful rest of the week everyone!

You know that time of the week when you can almost smell the weekend approaching and all the stress of work and errands and all the things on your mind seem to just fade away? We love that time!

The weekend is finally upon us! We like to use our weekend time to relax and rest from our crazy week, and get our bodies and minds ready for another one.

This picture, taken during a spontaneous stroll through the beautifully rural Givat Ada in northern Israel, is the image of relaxation and peace of mind.
