The weather has been so good recently It just makes me want to buy bright colours and florals (yes even more than usual!) there are some amazing SS pieces out at the moment and it's the best time to get buying for the warmer months! It's a bit of a floral rainbow explosion this week full of amazing product which I hope you love as much as me!

Admit it, Jeans are your best friend and your worst enemy all at once -When you find that perfect pair, you live, sleep and breathe in them constantly but the pain and trauma of finding that pair to begin with can make you wanna pull your hair out. Which style suits you best? What exact shade of blue/grey/black do you want? Those are how much?!

Step in Missguided - who have just launched their brand new collection of denim in all this season's hottest shapes and shades. Me and Naomi wanted to go for a 90's inspired look with our denim so I chose to style up these amazing black jeans with ripped knees. The high waisted style means my post pregnancy tum is under wraps and the black adds that extra ounce of flattery for someone who is still a little self conscious of there forever changing size! The rip adds extra interest and breaks up the long line of solid black. Not only do these jeans fit beautifully, they feel so comfy too - I couldn't ask for much more! 

High waisted jeans are the perfect match for crop tops as you are showing off minimal flesh and lucky for me, this exaggerates my waist rather than my bum or thighs. The high neck style top means even more modesty and that real 90s feel to the outfit. My incredible moschino inspired necklace has come from Chelsea Doll and adds that real pop-art vibe and the leather finishes off the look 

This outfit feels quite laid back and simple for me but it just goes to show you can feel and look fabulous in anything if you've found that pair that just work - and I've definitely found mine!

Denim is everywhere at the moment and top of the style essentials for SS14. It has to be a pretty special pair of jeans for me to be converted as anyone that knows my style knows me for floaty skirts and maxi dress vibes. But I was completely head over heels for these 'Edie' jeans and they have fast become a wardrobe staple! Miss Guided has a fantastic range of denim with all fits and washes and at really good prices- they have just launched there 'Jeanology' campaign focusing on all things denim! These are honestly the best fitting jeans I have ever owned. They are super high waisted, acid wash and I love the ripped detailing. Check out the whole collection HERE 

I went for a super 90s look with the jeans styling them with a cropped tee with aztec detailing, a checked blazer and these whopping amazing 90s platform sandals which totally rock! For accessories I went for a cute little tattoo necklace, some cool sunnies and my new amazing Aspiga Beach pouch bag which is all over beaded and a pouch of wonderfulness! I stuck to a monochrome and beige colour palette which I thought worked really well against the acid wash jeans and went super 90s with 2 plaits in the front of my hair and a dark lipstick. 

How are you styling up your denim this season? Head over to Miss Guided's new Jeanology Collection and shop the amazing 'blue hues'!

With the Company Style Blog Awards nominations well under way, it is clear there are an incredible amount of amazing blogs in the running this year, so we here at TSOP want to share who is getting our votes this year round!



Megan at Pages By Megan

Manchurian fashion student Megan's fashion blog is most definitely the best one we have found in the last few months - and I want everything in her wardrobe (that's if I don't have it already!) Having undergone an amazing transformation from What's New Pussycatt to Pages By Megan, it's hard to believe that she has only been blogging a year or so!

Shope and Shore at Londons Closet

Our favourite blogging duo and a complete inspiration to us! These gorgeous ladies have to be two of the nicest people we have met since we have been blogging! Having won Best Blogging Duo at the 2013 awards, they are going for Best Personal Style this year as they are two for the price of one!

Charlotte at Lurchhound Loves

Another relatively new find for us is Charlotte from Lurchhound Loves. We love her style and her great blog and know you all will to! She is also super nice and has supported us along the way so we are supporting her to!

Lydia at Fashion Influx

We have followed Lydia for a long time now and met her at the Cosmopolitan blog awards end of last year where she won runner up. She is such a lovely girl and has a beautiful blog! Naomi also judged with her at The Grand National a few weeks ago- we are routing for you Lydia!

Lindsey at Ropes Of Holland

Her style is absolutely flawless and after meeting her at LFW it was so nice to finally meet her in person! We love her clean, premium outfits and she always looks gorgeous. Everyone check out her blog, she's a style inspiration!

Geraint at His Name Is Fashion

Working with Gerraint at Topshop we are very happy to include him in this! His blog is very new and so were we when we entered last year and it did amazing things for us. Gerraint has incredible style and we are so pleased he is going for the 'mens blogger' category!

Folk has played a massive influence on this seasons festival look and with folk style patterns, fabrics and embellishment it gives a new fresh look for another year of festivals and our favourite season!

You don't have to tell me twice to wear pattern and details so this was to my delight! I have been massively buying vintage since starting at Beyond Retro and have found amazing festival pieces at half the price of high street! This was no exception and I have been itching to share this with you! The crochet dress and waistcoat are both from Beyond Retro and I absolutely LOVE them both! I wanted to play about with texture so mixed them up together and accessorised with a floral headband and statement belt. A simple yet statement look which has a key folk influence.

How is the folk trend influencing your festival wardrobe this season? I'm sure we will see lots at Coachella this weekend!

Folklore - Amy

Kimono c/o Beach Cafe, Topshop Crinkle Gingham Smock Dress, Sunglasses c/o La Moda, Freedom for Topshop Eagle Necklace, Primark Bag, Topshop Jolie Boots










The bohemian/festival style is definitely Naomi's forte and although I admire her incredible ability to mix and match all the rich patterns and textures associated with this look, I can't say I can do the same myself. I love this season's folk-inspired festival vibe though and there are some gorgeous pieces around on the high street that can be worn quite easily, even if you're not as brave as my other shoe!

No one wants to hear about this gorgeous Topshop gingham dress, as chances are you probably own it too (but just quickly - sheer, collar, monochrome, flared sleeves? Divine) but it was the perfect match for this amazing kimono from Beach Cafe. Beach Cafe has the best holiday wear available - everything is such wonderful quality you want to live in it on and off the beach and this kimono with its embroidered detailing is just gorgeous. 

I finished off my outfit with a tan laser cut bag and my saviour boot of ss14. It's black, it's cut out but it's summer friendly and I can't stop wearing them already! I have also opted for non black sunnies by choosing these beauts from la moda so the outfit isn't too dark alongside the black kimono

Are you getting ready for festival season? What are your ss14 hero items gunna be?!

A lot of women are coming here today to compete in the Best Dressed competition, held in the Liverpool ONE area of the Red Rum garden.
I've just caught up with judge Naomi Rowland, who runs fashion blog 'Two Shoes, One pair'.
She said: "I'm looking for head-to-toe styling, so I'll be picking someone who's thought about every aspect of their look. I'd like to see an influence of the Spring/Summer trends, but they need to still look really formal and chic to be in keeping with the races. I've already seen an amazing collection of hats, so it's going to be a tough job finding a winner."


Channel 4 Coverage 
I was lucky enough to be asked by Liverpool ONE & Think Publicity to be a guest judge on Ladies Day at The Grand National for 'The Best Dressed' competition. Luckily I got to judge alongside bloggers and mega babes Prince Cassius & Lydia from Fashion Influx. On Friday Prince Cassius & myself headed to Liverpool on Virgin Trains at the crack of dawn in our finest attire ready to scout the best dressed at the races!

When we got to Aintree we were shown around then started scouting the event for the best dressed ladies. I got interviewed for Liverpool Echo & Radio Merseyside and we were also featured on The Mirror, The Metro, The Daily Mail, The Telegraph and in the Liverpool Echo paper. I was pleasantly surprised by the style around Aintree and actually found it extremely easy to pick out my favourite 10. There was a fabulous array of gorgeous dresses and unusual hats! Our top 30 then took to the stage for a catwalk of the best dressed and then we narrowed it down to our top 3 which then went to public vote to help us decided the winner. The winner was stunning Becky Nightingale who wore pastels so well in a pretty pastel ensemble. She won a holiday and vouchers for Liverpool ONE & was over the moon. The main racing essentials we saw were unusual gorgeous hats and nice printed dresses, it was so nice to see everyone dressed up and I loved wearing a hat!

I had such an amazing day and the guys at Think Publicity really looked after us throughout the whole time we were there - it was such a fantastic thing to be part of and I can't thank Liverpool ONE and Think Publicity enough!

We stayed at the Novotel in central Liverpool which was amazing- gorgeous room, great location, the most comfiest beds and amazing breakfast! On the Friday evening we went for drinks in Liverpool which was really nice to talk to the guys from Think Publicity more and have some fun. On Saturday Lydia and myself headed to Aintree to place some bets and enjoy our day! We had such a fun day and I won £45 on Alvarado! It was so nice to get dressed up again and wear a big hat and I would definitely go to the races again!

Let's talk outfits... On the Friday I wore a dress by Yuvna Kim which was absolutely stunning! It had so much gorgeous detailing I never wanted to take it of! I also wore James Lakeland Blazer - we all ended up wearing cream blazers which wasn't planned! I worked my look around the 3D floral trend for SS14 so wore ASOS embellished floral clutch to match and nude heels. My hat was from Felicity Hats a local Liverpool hat shop and they did an amazing job picking me out the best hats to Match my outfits On The Saturday I wore dress from Alice + Olivia, Topshop Jacket and again my hat was from the wonderful Felicity Hats.
