Is anyone else struggling with this crazy hot, cold, rainy August weather? I was opting for my leather and suede biker jackets but this Miss Guided white sleeveless trench has got it spot on this month! It's such a good shape and the fact it's sleeveless allows you to wear it over summery pieces or layer it up with a thin knit for colder days. Being a Londoner and constantly battling tubes and long journeys, a light coverup is exactly what we need in the next few months and this is the answer to all my prayers! I chose to throw it on over a very 70s inspired paisley clash. The shirt is amazing and part of their new AW14 collection which is all incredible- I love the updated colours from summer with the blue and rusty colour palette. I chose to team it with a pair of paisley trousers for a mis-match pattern clash with a very 70s feel (which is so on trend for AW!) The white trench worked perfectly over all the print and made it very wearable for now. 
I accessorised with my black fedora, black clutch and silver jewellery for a casual yet smart outfit which is great for work or play. What do you think about the sleeveless trench, we are totally hooked! 


Trench Talk - Amy

Just incase you hadn't heard enough from me about duster and trench coats (oops!), me and Naomi wanted to show you guys a bit of a way to wear with this amazing sleeveless trench from Missguided. This beaut comes in black, tan and white and after seeing the beautiful El in this at the Missguided AW14 Press day, I had to have the black.

I love to make the most out of any sleeveless outwear by pairing them with jazzy long sleeved tops and dresses. This maximises both items and allows those all important transitional layers to look clean and even. I took this layering to the next level (literally) by wearing 2 dresses for this look - the jacquard stripes contrasted perfectly with the grey jersey and the pops of pattern added just enough 'luxe' to the sporty vibes in this outfit. The trench on top finishes this look in the smartish way I like to do!

I have been dying to share these slip on plimsolls with you for so long - a lot like the Celine ones, these Asos dupes are only £20 and soo comfy and the perfect bit of interest for any monochrome look. I did inject some colour into the look with a sporty clutch and matching lips though - and reminded myself how much I miss maroon in the summer.


Bloggers x Paradox

Can you believe we had never really been to Manchester before? This made it all the more exciting when we were asked by Pretty Little Thing to style their 'in-house' designed Paradox Collection for a special blogger lookbook. We were thrilled to be able to put a TSOP twist on the sell-out collection and finally meet Fiona, PLT's Blogger Outreach Assistant :)

True to the south's perception of up north, it rained (and we mean really rained) the entire time we were there so were unable to explore all the amazing places that had been suggested to us but we did get to have a good nosey around PLT HQ which was amazing! Rails of product and mountains of shoes to play with whilst we had our hair and makeup done by Bethany and a good catch up with Sarah Ashcroft.

We had such a lovely day despite the torrential downpours and we're really pleased with how the photos came out! We'd like to say another big thank you to Fiona for having us and really hope to make it back to Manchester soon! You can shop the Paradox Collection here, and don't forget to tell us which pieces are your favourites

The 2nd part of my Transitional Florals post is on the lighter shades of floral prints are reminding myself that there is still some summer left! Weddings, garden parties and festivals are still happening until at least mid september so we still have time for some summery floral shades before AW.

I have been finding the right time to shoot outfit 1 for a while now. I brought it at Glastonbury on one of the vintage stalls believe it or not for £15. I feel like a bohemian princess in this just gliding through the fields and honestly could probably get married in something like this! I really wanted to wear it at Glastonbury but couldn't because of the rain- it's definitely one for next year! It doesn't need much styling so stuck with a dainty floral crown and a statement clutch- perfect garden party attire!

The 2nd look you will recognise the duster from the ASOS FF awards post. It's one of my best finds from Beyond Retro and is actually a dress! But I love wearing it open as a duster jacket which is perfect for the weather now to throw on over summery outfits. I absolutely love it with the pretty lace dress underneath and brought out the yellow with my DP bag and Primark wedges for a perfect August/September summer look- covered up yet still summery. 

I hope you have enjoyed our 2 part posts, Amy's transitional coats and my transitional florals! I don't know about you guys but I am so ready for AW now, bring on the layers!

I couldn't not include this outtake of me running in the rain mid way through shooting! The realistic side of blogging :-)

 The weather has took a turn for the worse recently and it's dawned upon me that autumn is coming thick and fast! This saddens me but also excited me to welcome my winter wardrobe and layers upon layers of texture and prints. Florals always take a much more darker palette and are more covered up, which I will be discussing in this 2 part floral extravaganza!

The first look is based around this ah-mazing Kiss The Sky dress which has gorgeous lace back detailing. A perfect transitional dress which will look great teamed with a shaggy fur gilet and tights if need be! I thought teaming it with my over the knee boots made it slightly more AW. For this look I teamed it with one of my favourite crochet waistcoat and silver jewellery. 

The second look I have been dying to shoot for ages! This sheer beautiful maxi with faint flowers all over is perfect for the AW 'Shadow Play' trend and is a subtle move on to the AW flower game. I teamed my Miss Guided sleeveless maxi kimono over it for a beautiful layering piece and focused on a statement belt and bright clutch. I felt like the fur cape get it that extra 'peacocking' effect that would work great for LFW!

Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow with transitional more flower power!
