It doesn't matter how many seasons we get through, the speed in which time just vanishes between them never ceases to amaze me but even more so then when the press day invites are coming through - how could it possibly be that time again already?

We were very lucky to be invited to a few to get some sneak peaks of the amazing product that's on it's way to the high street and here's what we've got in store..

Across the aw14 catwalk and now filtering down to the masses, the trends aren't too far from what aw13 had to offer but if anyone has stepped these trends up a gear it's Boohoo. They have given last seasons faves that fresh lease of life that they totally deserve with incredible pastel fur bombers replacing the pale pink coat and sports luxe getting even more, well, luxe. Boohoo are a company we have watched get bigger and better every single season and this one is no exception - not only have they outdone themselves but they're out doing everyone else when it comes to affordable fashion too.

New Look
Magpie alert! Expect sparkle sparkle sparkles from New Look next season! The thing I love about New Look Press Days is being excited for product across the board - the clothing is always good but we were also excited by the wall of underwear sets and the large amounts of amazing accessories.

Definitely the most beautiful Press Day, it even smelt amazing! Having come from display-related backgrounds, we were in awe of the thought process behind the pyramid of coffee mugs, street style florist and of course the beautiful product that went with it! I am adoring the navy and lime colour palettes in the day way collection rich jewellery box colours in the occasion wear - perfect for dare I say it.. Christmas.

When it comes to collabs, Littlewoods are killing it. At another beautifully presented Press Day by the guys at Lee Publicity, the Coleen and Mylene collections were fashionable and wearable which is perfect for their key demographic. Coords are still going strong, and luxe military seemed to be a key trend for these guys.

Marks and Spencer
I could not see past the coats - every single one was just beautiful and I need them all. M&S is another company that have seriously upped their fashion game and I genuinely love love love the direction they are going in bringing a higher end look to the high street. Incredible trophy sweats, the most amazing fur coat, pastel pink tailored suit and iridescent shirt combo and real 70's florals were amongst my faves but the coats.. (Also the kids bowler hat that looked like a kitty!)


Monthly Must Haves (May) - Naomi

I have been overwhelmed with my love for SS14 product at the moment! For me ASOS and Topshop have the best folk inspired pieces as well as mixing it in to a bit of vintage to keep it unique. I am going to Glastonbury end of June so my money is being spent on the best festival attire I can get my hands on and boy do we have an amazing choice! Here's my top pieces I have found over the month of May- enjoy! 

This is the most gorgeous dress and perfect for festival season with the stunning back detailing.

The answer to all your festival prayers! Can fit all your festival essentials in whilst looking super boho chic!

A wide trouser is perfect to keep you warm at festival and a great alternative to shorts being super flattering & on trend. 

This super cute little clutch is great for summer nights out or to store your jewellery and make up as a little travel bag

AMAZING! One of the most gorgeous kimonos I have seen this season. The print is simply stunning and all over it. A must have SS14 piece! Best snap this beauty up quick guys!

Rock N Rose have it bang on with floral headbands and are in a league of there own with their gorgeous unusual flowers and arrays of wonderfulness!

This is a gorgeous statement piece to team with your summer bohemian ensembles! Go mad and layer them up. 

Another great summer wardrobe addition! A really unusual head chain with a beautiful shape and blue stones. Stand out from the crowd with this great piece!

I love crochet for summer it always adds texture and interest against pattern and colour. This is a really nice colour and a perfect layering piece to throw on over strappy dresses!

This is the perfect little summer mini skirt. Such a statement piece that teaming it with a plain jersey you will still stand out from the crowd. 

This is a gorgeous little festival piece for keeping your essentials safe and looking good!

Is anyone else sick of this rainy, gloomy weather? Shooting has been hard work this week and i'm sure fellow bloggers will agree! On the other hand my Another8 Leopard print Jacket and shorts have been the perfect ensemble to keep me both dry, cool in the humidity and still look great!

I only recently discovered Another8 and I am totally hooked! They have gorgeous clean cut pieces in amazing shapes and cool prints. I have worn this matching jacket and shorts to death since it came through my letterbox before holiday and we are super glad to be working with such a great brand! Animal print is great for summer with festival season coming up, and I loved wearing it on my holiday in Morroco last week. 

I styled it up with my Lavish Alice crop top and Moxham necklace, I wanted to go for quite a clean but still bohemian influence so added my feather clutch and New Look cut out heels. The weather was horrible when shooting so went for my trusty black fedora to hide away my frizzy mane!

How are you wearing animal print this season? Be sure to check out Another8 for some amazing premium spring pieces!

Admittedly, I am a total sucker for typical high street brands like Toppers, Zara, Primark etc but it really excites me to find (and completely fall in love with) something lesser known. East London newbie, Another 8, are exactly that and I am head over heels for their slick designs.

No photograph will ever do this dress justice. I thought it looked amazing when I saw it online but it is a million times better in real life being the perfect shades of blue and cream, spot-on structured shape and really high quality material. How often is is that that happens with ANY brand? Well known or not, it's not often. The jacket is equally as wonderful, being that exact shade of blue I've been after all season - expect to see this in a lot of upcoming posts.

I couldn't resist pairing the dress with these cute pointed flats - I'm not even a leopard print person but it seems once I pop I can't stop and I'm not the smallest bit sorry!


Monthly Must Haves (May) - Amy

Seeing as we never post our Week In Style's on a weekly basis we thought we'd give our little wishlists a bit of an update so, ta dahhh!, welcome to Monthly Must haves! And here is what I'm lusting after this month:

This is how to do sports luxe. This simple and sleek tee is perfect for the warmer weather and looks so effortlessly cool.

Oh my godddd - it isn't often I completely fall in love with items that are well and truly out of my price bracket (mainly because I try not to look as it makes me so sad) but isn't this the most perfect jacket in the whole world? sob.

House of Sunny are a relatively new find for me, but they have got me completely hooked. I love their oversized, boxy shapes and this crackle print is such a statement. 

ASOS Fedoras (Pink and Lilac)
However much I love my black fedora, it'd be nice to lighten up the head wear for the summer. My favourites are this amazing pink fedora from River Island and this staple lilac Asos number

The perfect summer dress. This beauty could be worn over a tee, under a biker or quite simply on it's own. It has a beautiful cut out at the back and is perfect for festivals, bbq's or quite simply sitting in the garden with a nice book (and a beer)

Invites are out and outfit planning is well underway for the Company Style Blogger Awards. Of course, we don't want to give too much away but this might have dropped through my letter box this week..

New Look are killing it with the sandals this season! These are just the tip of the iceberg and are only £24.99. These are a lot sleeker than most sandals on the high street this season and the grey is a nice change from the pure black and white additions to my wardrobe.

Missguided Coord (Top and Bottom)
Just when you think you have more than enough co-ords, Missguided go and do this! and then I have yet another two piece on my wishlists. Geo prints are still going strong and I love the mix of pink and purple.
