A Field Of Yellow Daisies - Amy

Topshop Floral Blouse, H&M Stripe Shirt, Topshop Zip Front Skirt, Prada Cinema Sunglasses c/o Red Hot Sunglasses, Primark Bag, Topshop Magnum Boots

Florals and Stripes - two of the most staple prints in any girls wardrobe but sometimes they can be a little tricky to work into on-trend looks. We are constantly on the look out to find inspiring and updated ways to wear both of these classics and we were completely wow-ed by an editoral in Look a couple of weeks ago when they paired the unlikely duo together and it worked perfectly.

The key to nailing this look is to firstly find a fresh looking floral. This beautiful daisy print with retro yellow/orange-y vibes actually has that exact SS15 feel but not like anything else we've seen on the high street at the moment. I went for the blouse (not quite brave enough to go for the jumpsuit!) and continued the modern/vintage theme with this zip up, scuba skirt that matched the colour palette nicely to the whole outfit wasn't too wild. I then slipped the stripes in with one of my favourite shirts.

What do you think of this daring pattern clash?


Tips and Tricks - Spring Cleaning

As bloggers/women, our wardrobes can sometimes get pretty overwhelming. It's all very well staying on trend each season but it's scary just how fast clothes can accumulate and before you know it your having a fight with chest of drawers and a bigger fight with your boyfriend about the 90:10 split of the storage space.. oops! But a nice sift through your belongings can leave you feeling cleansed, inspired by that long lost top that was lurking under a few dozen coats and even better, it could leave you quids in.

We are firm believers in 'never having enough clothes' but we also think you should be making the most of your wardrobe too! So here are our favourite tips and tricks to get your spring cleaning sorted

1. Do a sift at the start of every season, just as you seen new trends emerging. You never know what has miraculously come back in again, and regular 4-yearly rummages can keep you on top of your stash.

2. We're all guilty of buying and never wearing! We give our new bits and pieces the 3 month challenge and if it's still unworn by then, it's a fond farewell to a better home.

3. With any 'unsure' items, make 3 outfits with it, all from things in your 'definitely keep' pile and if you can't, let it go. You never know what amazing combinations you discover doing this!

4. Get super organised, and we mean super! Order and categorise your rails by style/type/trend whatever takes your fancy (make it more fun with jazzy hangers for each category too) so you know where to look when you create an outfit. You'll soon start to realise where your favourites are coming from and automatically means you can buy anything else for that category completely guilt free ;)

5. Clue up! Bloggers Press Day posts give you 6 months advanced warning on what's gunna come around again and magazine's are pretty ahead of the trends too. Being in the know will stop you chucking anything that you may later regret.

Living in London means limited amount of storage and wardrobe space for the majority of women! The thing I always struggle with is where to put my winter coats come Spring. They can probably fill a wardrobe themselves and I always ending collecting more each season... 

I decided that this spring I would look at an easy alternative and store them away until Autumn to make room for my spring summer wardrobe. I came across Boxman online a London based service that deliver, collect and return your boxes whenever you need for only £5 a month for a box. It's a stress free service and the drivers were very helpful and friendly. They also work until 9pm on weekdays and work Saturdays so handy if you need to use the service out of work hours. When the boxes are collected you can organise them online by naming them, uploading photos and tags so it's easy to know where your items are and in which box. So handy! 

I fit around 6/7 thick winter coats in each box (the boxes are pretty big) and used 4 boxes for all of my coats and winter accessories. I feel so much better for de-cluttering and I have used the space wisely to make room for my Spring ensembles! All round it was a great stress-free service that I highly recommend!

We all like to sell clothes to make money for more clothes and Depop is definitely our favourite way of doing this! With an interface similar to Instagram, the easiest upload process I've ever used and no unexpected monthly fees, I think it's far more user friendly than other well-known selling sites.

I upload when and where I can find time without being tied into auction end times and the personal interaction with your buyers and sellers you know your items are going to someone who really loves the item and this makes me really happy!

With all the talk of 70s at the moment we thought we would take a moment to appreciate 60s and style up our new favourite checked dresses. I found this checked swing dress in Beyond Retro Brick Lane a few weeks ago and just had to have it! The short length and swing shape is so perfect and it was so easy to style with a roll neck and monochrome blazer.

The first time in the year I have braved a bare leg but with a black boot and sunnies making this look perfect for the pub or dinner. It's that funny in between seasons at the moment where it's like what the hell do I wear, so clever layering using roll necks and light jackets will make sure were sorted until summer!

Topshop Denim Shirt, New Look Check Dress, Florian London Leather Bag, Clarks x Orla Kiely Betty Sandals

We love playing around with vintage influences and we've both found a new love of  black and white checker board. It may be the season for the 70's but we love adding in touches of the 60's (and all decades) into our wardrobes too to add that unique and interesting twist on our latest buys. 

This simple shift is a timeless piece that can come back again and again, so much so it's been in my wardrobe since secondary school, and seemed like the perfect partner for my brand spanking new Orla Betty's. Seeing as my tan ones have barely left my feet, it seemed suitable to get a naughty pair of blue ones too and if it's even possible, I think I love these even more.

I wanted to tie the shoes and dress in together so I picked out the pale blue and layered a denim shirt underneath and wore by favourite red Florian bag.

What's your favourite classic?

Coachella style has been everywhere over the last week and we have certainly been influenced by the flawless festival style and trends seen at the festival. What caught our eye was the gorgeous white ensembles that really capture the 'festival chic' look so well.

We picked our white pieces from the new Lauren Pope collection for In The Style, I picked the lace crop top and gorgeous summery white skirt which I know is going to be a everyday staple for me over summer. I styled these pieces with my new amazing suede cape of course vintage and from Beyond Retro. These have been super popular so far this season as seen at Coachella and ASOS have just started stocking them! I accessorised the look with silver and concho jewellery for that western vibe and all about the statement festival boot.

Vintage Suede Jacket, Topshop Crochet Jumper, Lauren Pope White Pussy Bow Dress c/o In The Style, Primark Bag, Daniel Footwear Boots

Freshly inspired by all of the whites at Coachella, we couldn't resist a little go ourselves, especially as this seemed like the perfect opportunity to style up the new In The Style X Lauren Pope collection. I decided to go super 70's with this incredible pussy bow dress as my base piece. Just on it's own, this dress is a show stopper and looks just as beautiful with a a pair of heels and statement clutch as it does toned down for a festival.

I decided to layer up for this look with a cropped crochet jumper for that all important boho feel. I love the mix of textures, especially with the tonal outfit, and adoreeee the huge bow detail. I had to finish off with THE must have item of SS15 - the suede jacket. Having looked for one for a while, the perfect one for me caught me by (a very nice) surprise a couple of weeks ago and I know it's going to become a wardrobe staple.
