2014: The Best Of - Amy

It's always nice to reflect on a year gone by, though I still can't believe that 2014's drawing to a close. The year has whizzed by in a whirlwind of emotions for me and I have never been so grateful to have Two Shoes, One Pair. Blogging has allowed me to stay connected to something I love more than anything, fashion, and something I love even more, Naomi. We have been blessed with so many amazing opportunities this year, have met more incredible people and most importantly we are ready to make 2015 even more exciting for ourselves - bring it onnnn!

2014: The Best Of - Naomi

2014 has been an amazing year, new job, new flat, wedding planning underway in my personal life and the most amazing success with my best friend through TSOP! We won 2 awards for Company Magazine Blog Awards & ASOS FF Awards, started writing for Yahoo Fashion & Lifestyle, collaborated with dream brands such as Alice + Olivia and Urban Outfitters and have been featured across various websites, magazines and features online. This post is such a nice way to end the year and reflect on what we have achieved in 2014.

I am so lucky to blog and run a business with my best friend, TSOP has brought us so many opportunities we could only dream of and meet the most amazing people and the truth is we have an absolute blast doing it! I am so proud of Amy for having a baby and keeping up with the blog, you are a trooper and an inspiration and I am so proud to be one half of TSOP with you.

Thanks everyone for all your support this year, bring on 2015 and all fun that awaits!

One of my favourite trends of 2014 has been casual tailoring, even more so when it's monochrome. Looking clean cut and comfy has got to be outfit perfection hasn't it? and is pretty simple too.  This has turned into a go-to outfit the last few weeks for lunch dates and days out shopping.

A simple white shirt is the perfect way to start this look as it looks so good with simply skinny jeans or a patterened cigarette trouser for something more interesting. Is it me or does houndstooth just never go out of fashion? I love this classic black and white print and these trousers have served me veryyy well this season. The pattern adds the exact amount of interest needed in a simple monochromatic outfit.

A mensy blazer is good for layering up or a structed boyfriend coat for when it's a little nippier. I love the androgynous finishes to the tailored trend and I had been eye-ing this blazer up on Lizzy for so long, I finally gave in when Glamour gave me a 25% off code and I'm so pleased I did, it fits like a dream! To make the look more day-time friendly I had to go for a trainer and my b+w vans were spot on.

What's been your fave trend from 2014? I can't wait to see what next year brings!

As January approaches it's nice to head in to the new year with a tailored and fresh approach. Tailoring and premium shapes are key as we head into spring (a long way of yet) but with Fashion Week around the corner it's great to get thinking about those premium looks. 

 I went for a longline printed blazer from Pretty Little Thing to give this look a tailored but interesting spin. I styled up my Topshop leather pinafore dress with Tara Starlet roll neck underneath and threw my white fur stole over my shoulder for a wintry feel. Long over the knee boots have been key for the season and these have been my wardrobe staple. They look great with mini dresses and skirts whilst keeping your legs warm! 

How are you tailoring up your January?!
