With the 7th season of Mad Men just started we have been well and truly influenced by the 60s style on the show. From Megan to Betty we couldn't wait to style up our outfits with our own TSOP twists!

We headed to Motel Rocks to get our Mad Men esq fix and to give the looks a modern feel. I went for this amazing long sleeved blue dress which is floral lace with a slight bell sleeve. The micro length and shape makes it so mad men worthy and thought it looked great with my Zara blazer over the top for the colour and print. I went for snakeskin accessories and my favourite rose tinted round sunnies for that retro feel.

Definitely check out Mad Men for some serious style inspo, I am definitely style-crushing on Megan! What about you guys?

With the arrival of the Mad Men finale imminent, it seemed the perfect oppotunity to step back into the sixties! The wardrobe department have done a wonderful job throughout all 7 seasons, though it's no secret that we love a bit of retro , and we have been well and truly inspired.

I wanted to do a more modern look with my 60's vibes - the gorgeous Megan summed up our feelings in this post here about being influenced by past decades and her wise words are some to be remembered when styling certain pieces up! I wanted to do a monochrome look (something rarely seen on Mad Men itself) and this Motel Rocks dress was a great starting point with its abstract print and high neck, mini style. To give it it's noughtie twist, I layered it over a contrast trim tee - this seasons must have updated basic and gives the overall look quite casual.

I couldn't not wear these patent boots as a real salute to the post! They add that feminine sex appeal in just the right dose.

Seventies may be the trend of the season but there's no harm in looking back a little further now and again! Are you 60's or 70's? We can't choose!


Trend Inspo: Occassion Wear

Now that Spring has finally sprung, it's time to get thinking about those all important outfits for the season ahead! Whether its a wedding, prom or just a full-on party you need to dress to impress this summer and the high street can get you sorted!

Ahh the end of exams, is there any greater feeling? and is there any better excuse to let your hair down?! Go for purse-friendly party wear (Asos are killing it!) and head out in slick monochrome for maximum impact! Mixing prints and playful clutches add in the full elements you need and a cute sock and sandal will definitely have you standing out from the crowd for all the right reasons.

Older only means bolder and braver and College Prom is the perfect time to show some true colour! Go for classic shapes in modern prints when it comes to your dress and then mix up retro and on-trend pieces to finish off. Tatty Devine are the Gods of statement neckwear so you're sure to find something original you can keep hold of forever.

White to a wedding is usually a big no-no but if you know how to do it right, it can look fab! Try to go for shift style dresses for weddings, smart and sophisticated but not too dressy and always go for a print! Add pops of colour in with accessories and don't be afraid of a sequin of two! Finish off with a pastel biker for a stylish alternative to the classic (mumsy!) jacket

Any get together can be used as an excuse to get glammed up and BBQs are no exception. A pretty playsuit is the definition of smart casj and a great central piece to build the rest of your outfit around. Yellows, oranges and tans are our favourite colour palettes and work so well in summer evenings.

I love colour and as soon as it get's to Spring it's an excuse to bring out those bright prints and have fun again with your dressing after moody winter! I don't usually buy into the whole 80s look but have seen graphic prints everywhere for SS15, so here's my take on it!

I went for a bright fun 80s spotty blouse from Beyond Retro which I absolutely LOVE the colours in it, it's so fun and playful! I teamed it with my new pleated skirt from Very, which is my favourite colour ever and I love the metallic sheen it has to it. I wanted to make this look quite smart/ going out for dinner esq so teamed the look with my pointy heels and my yellow clutch to bring all the colours together. The leather jacket over my shoulders toughened the look up a bit to make it more wearable.

Why don't you get dotty in spots this Spring and have some fun!

Ever seen a piece of clothing on TV and just had to have it? This shirt was on Kate Garraway of all people and I just fell in love. I love a good collared blouse, I love a bright print and I love a good spot - so this is pretty much perfect! Spots never go out and are a great and easy-to-wear way to add interest to an outfit.

I wanted to go for an everyday look so went for jeans to start and then for a little bit of a pattern clash with a pinstripe blazer. Because the spots are so bold and the stripes quite subtle, this combination can work. To continue on the casual vibe, I went for trainers and a bigger day-time hand bag to complete the look.

I'm a true believer in flower power all year long but of course when Spring comes around it feels so much nicer and fresh to sport those floral prints! I have been after for a wide leg pair of palazzo trousers for Spring and these from George at Asda are definitely my answer and only £14!

I styled them up with a denim shirt layered with my crochet long sleeved top and my suede cape of dreams that I wore for LFW. I wanted to bring out the red in the trousers so added my burgundy hat and bag for a bit of colour.  I like mixing suede with floral prints to give it that current 70s feel. 

How are you wearing florals this Spring?
