Happy Labor Day, friends!!! And HOLY MOLY it is already September! We cannot believe that we will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary in a couple of weeks. Where has the time gone?!?! Well, as summer is winding down we decided to do a photoshoot that we've been dreaming of ever since we started talking about Soma & Ulte!
So this week we present to you...*drumroll*.....
.....our Retro Rollerskate #OOTD!!!
This look embodies our personalities, our love of retro fashion, and most importantly, our extremely goofy friendship! If you guys are headed to the beach today, grab your skates, grab your short shorts, and make sure to bring your A-game for epic poses because you will be stopped for photos.
This pose was inspired by the incomparable Blades of Glory LOL!
For those of you looking for a good core workout, this pose is called "The Titanic."
We absolutely 1000% struggled with gracefully spinning around each other like Jack and Rose, but we got some good belly laughs during the attempts. There is truly no better way to do a trust exercise with your bestie than this!!!
This was our "Running Man"... do not do this unless you are willing to faceplant!
The iconic, "Charlie's Angels"
The key inspiration for our #OOTD was our Chicago Deluxe leather rink skates. These bad boys are sold at Target and are less than $50!! They're comfy, very stable, and super adorable. However, DO NOT walk through the sand in them. They will never be the same! Dun dun dunnnnn!!!
Shopping tip: They run large. Connie and I rounded up in our sizes and were swimming in them. I'm a 6.5 so I got a 7, but I definitely should've gotten a 6.
Connie and I both love the 70s and, honestly, retro-inspired fashion was huge this summer. Since stores are beginning to roll out their Fall lines you'll most likely find these items in the clearance section at the stores, which is a total BONUS!!!
