Monochromes v Citrus

After a little break, I’m delving straight back into some of my favourite trends for Spring, Summer 15. Today I want to talk about monochromes v citrus! Being an avid monochromatic lover, subtle pops of additional colour is the way I like to do things – and this colour way is possibly one of my favourites ever!

Gemini-Woman are one of Masai Clothing’s largest stockists in the UK & EU…and being lucky enough to work closely with the brand daily, I wanted to share some of my most loved pieces from their most recent collection. This citrus combo fabulousness is included within everyday essentials, from dresses to jackets, to super on trend culottes and leggings.

Mix your prints and focus on statement jewellery to give your simplistic looks an edge that will take you from day to night. Festival Season is also just round the corner, which some of these pieces would be perfect for! Have you seen Masai’s new collection? If so, have you spotted anything that you fancy adding to your new season wardrobe? I’d love to know :)

AW14 Wearable Styling with Gemini-Fashion!

Gemini – A leading independent stockist, selling contemporary British, Scandinavian and European fashion!

To me, Gemini is THE perfect go-to online store, in terms of finding those all essential wearable pieces, for any type of occasion or season! Since October has gracefully greeted us with its glistening presence, and true leaf-crunching nostalgia, I decided to share a few of my favourite Autumn/Winter items, predominantly from one of Gemini’s most growingly popular ranges, Sandwich-Clothing.

Gemini invited myself and two other babe’in bloggers, Sophie & Steph, into their Studio, where we had the opportunity to style up some of the pieces, shown below. I wanted to showcase a variety of wearable looks, in terms of professional work wear and day wear, which could also be easily transformed into an evening outfit, with just a change in accessories or shoes. Ofcourse, this season’s must have colours, include ones that are magically muted down and wonderfully warm, with the odd pop of cool tones, thrown in for good measure! It’s certainly an exciting time of year, and is one of my favourites, due to the versatility of layering!

I’m also a huge fan of appropriately enhancing a fresh face…which leads me on to the next exciting element of the shoot! The day with Gemini also consisted of some rather insightful hair and makeup prep, created by two lovely ladies, over at Benefit cosmetics and Mathew Curtis hair salon. Consequently, if you’re interested in seeing a separate blog post, focussing upon the latest AW hair & makeup trends, then do let me know in the comments, as i’d love to include some of the advice I was given, from my day too!

So, without further or do, grab a cuppa, load up Gemini, and if you’re interested in a little AW fashion inspo, then do scroll on.

With this look, it’s all about the hat! Adding statement accessory pieces can really work wonders in terms of creating an on trend, yet wearable look, no matter the occasion or season. Make sure you take some ‘snaps’ too – polaroids preferable!

 This look just oozes a leisurely ladies lunch date! With a coffee in one hand, and perhaps some shopping bags in the other?, this look is perfect for taking you from the cold to warm in a matter of layers. The boots are SO cute too!

Finally, if you fancy quirking it up a little, why not get creative with your comfys! Wearing heeled boots and a statement necklace with more casual and muted down items, gives the outfit wearability and style.

There are so many more outfits I’d have loved to have shared, but I think it’s time you took a peek for yourself! Do let me know what staple pieces you’re loving this season, and if you’ve styled them up, leave your links in the comments below!

AW14 Date Night Lust List!

i2style

i2style aw14

Hello style lovers! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend so far.

With the weather transitioning from rays to rain, this season doesn’t have to be dull and dreary, like some people may associate with September onwards, especially within the wardrobe department! For me, this season is all about sparkle, snuggles and sass! With the exciting lead up to events such as Bonfire night, Christmas and New Year, one popular occasion I often think is perfect to plan around this time of year, is date night!

For us long term relationshipers’ – ‘date night’ occurs on the rather rare occasion, and for those newbie couples, it can’t happen enough! Either way, whoever you are (even if you’re an independent woman & fancy some new outfit inspiration for your night out with the gals), I have the cutest date night lust list, right here, on i2style! I recently participated in a fashion blogger photoshoot for a fab company called Gemini…and let me tell you, there was some serious lusting going on behind those rails! Both their online site and stunning store, located in the sophisticated little town of Stratford Upon Avon, is home to a number of wearable and on trend brands. Ones such as French Connection, Sandwich Clothing, Hobbs and more, it really is a place for everyone!

After our divine day at the shoot, (photos to follow soon), I decided to have a real good look at some of the items, I may have missed in store, by going online. After looking through just a few of the brands they stock, I was already finding myself creating an imaginary lust list, and thought the items would be perfect for a date, day or night! As a result I thought what better way of expressing my love for some of the garments, than with this very blog post, so you all can too, get a little outfit inspo.

I chose to share these more softer, cool toned pastel items, due to their feminine prints, cuts and over all look. They would all work well together, with the added option of a pair of tights or leggings, if the frost decided to bite more than we’d perhaps like! The boots seemed to give the outfit a subtle, yet sexy, statement look too – without over powering it.

Let me know your thoughts on the items shown above, and what your favourite items are from the site. Perhaps you could create your own lust list too, and don’t forget to send me and Gemini the link, as we’d love to see!

Big loves, as always, Hollybobs x
