If you've read my blog for longer than five minutes you'll know that I'm not really one to adhere to trends, let alone buy into them. Yeah, ok- I love a good pastel (even better if it's plastered onto a house)- and florals aren't just what I'm watering in plant pots- but I'm definitely more likely to receive a 'You're looking a bit like an '80s throwback!' on here than I am 'Ooh cute Celine dupe shoe things! Where can I buy?!' Either way- I do like to dip into things and put my own spin on them- so although the trends below may not be you're standard 'ugly-cool shoe' look or boyfriend pinstripe slacks, it's simply my take on what I'm loving this SS14 (print style)- and with so many bad ass patterns, can you blame me?

I've teamed all of the looks with some pretty swish new wrist furniture care of Citizen Watches, in launch with their new Drive collection- which even had me, the most poorly timed of people, swooning- plus, if you stay tuned you'll spot a chance to win you're own here soon!

When the summer months usually roll in, the first thing I'm inclined to turn to on a day-to-day basis is a simple white dress paired with my trusty leather jacket. Maybe it's a 'oh but I just want to be a Haim sister' kind of thing- or perhaps it's an 'accidentally inspired by Chung' thing- but either way, there's something about a simple monochrome get-up that has me at hello during bare leg season- all the more if it's printed. Cue this dress from H&M- after spotting it hanging in H&M, and deliberating whether I felt too K-Middy in it (a little, but never a bad thing)- I whisked it to the counter and never looked back (and never gave up)- see what I did there? No...

and here's what I wore for the monochrome look!

With every summer comes a palm/pineapple/mojito (maybe not) print, and every summer I fall in love with it again and again. Last summer I was sporting the '80s style big leaf jumpsuit (which I'm sure will make an appearance soon), and it seems this year is the year of the cutesy tropical short- which I can definitely get behind. Not only are the the easiest thing to wear and style (new jeans anyone?) but they certainly brighten up a dull day- and look perfect with matchy basics such as this Finders Keepers vest!

and here's what I wore for the tropical look!

If there's one way of doing the 'I woke up like this' outfit- it's by popping on a good old co-ord, the two piece creation that involves little thought and ultimate impact. When it comes to this trend, I'm one to usually turn to a manly suit and cute blouse, but after spotting this New Look number in Grazia- my inner Katy Perry said 'DO IT!' and low and behold I went body con- and amazingly, I think I like it. I'm usually a 'wear the MOST sack like thing you can kind' kinda gal, so wearing something a little slinkier was certainly a shock (and meant no wearing whilst indulging in burgers)- but I'm also excited to sport these as separates too, oh the fun of a co-ord!

and here's what I wore for the co-ord look!


This post is in collaboration with Citizen watches- but hey it's never bad timing (pun intended) to hear about some watch lovin'

  8. I love every single one of these outfits. The great thing is, even though they're "on trend"--they still seem to be completely your style which I always think a lot of people miss by wearing trends blindly instead of adapting them to their own tastes.
