CELEBRITY STYLE LOVING

Oh how we wish we had Victoria Beckham's wardrobe or maybe Olivia Palermo or Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's?  Whoever it may be, we all have one celebrity who's wardrobe we lust over. 


Toned and terrific! The supermodel stormed through her day looking well and truly in control of her chores, seemingly unfazed by the hefty loads she was carrying

For us Miranda Kerr can do no wrong in our eyes. Her street style is always impeccable, whether she is wearing shorts, a girly dress, or leather pants, we love it! Not to mention her amazing taste in bags.

On her sunny getaway to St Tropez, Nicole Richie showed us all how to look stylish even whilst kicking back, relaxing on holiday. A simple black vest can be been turned into something far less boring with a statement necklace like this gold looped one.



Such a trend-setter! Olivia Palermo showed her daring styled as she stepped out in Manhattan on Tuesday

We don't know how she does it. Always managing to look so put together even when wearing her casual get-up. This cute little shift dress is perfect for summer days and paired with a black cardi like this one will take you through to those chilly summer nights. We also cannot stop staring at those shoes!

Amazing style comes in the form of Alexa Chung. She can literally make anything that would look boring on any of us normal people, look absolutely amazing on her. How does she do it? Maybe it's just those amazing legs.

Now of course we could not not include the style queens of all style queens, the one and only Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Their effortless grungy slash rock, neutral palette street style has us all inspired with many of the fashion obsessed looking up to them.

AUTUMN/WINTER TRENDS 2013-14

We know we're not quite there yet and we don't want to wish our summer away, but already the trends that are set to hit this coming autumn/winter are already slowly making an appearance. 

The most talked about colours are black and white and also grey. The trends set are printed pyjamas, the bomber jacket, collars and also a lot of sheer items of clothing - we do hope this trend doesn't have us catching a cold.

IN STORES NOW

A round up of what we're loving in stores and online right now.

Image 2 of BAGGY JEANS from Zara

£29.99

On trend right now are baggy boyfriend jeans but these aren't the same as the old style where they were so baggy that they could almost fall off, they are now more fitted and more flattering. Light wash denim is also perfect for wearing in the summer



Image 2 of ETHNIC PRINT TROUSERS from Zara

£19.99

Also from Zara, a great trouser for summer are these ethnic print trousers



Image: www.topshop.com

£18

An essential to anyone's wardrobe, a cami or a crop cami in this case. Wear with a high waisted skirt or high waisted shorts. Perfect festival wear.

£45

These sandals will work with just about any outfit. Wear with jeans, short, skirts and dresses. The small heel will also flatter your legs





Image: www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk

£32

A lovely pair of shorts which are designed to look like the 'sports luxe' trend we saw a lot last season. But this print makes it more appropriate to wear with heels for a dressed up look.


Hope you enjoyed this fashion post. We're off shopping now!

HOW TO FAKE THAT SUN-KISSED LOOK



To continue on with our summer series posts, we bring you the best products for creating and faking that tan without needing to see the sun.

The ladies at Elpromotions have a few favourites for this, whether it be fake tan or a golden bronzer, we have a whole heap of products we love.




Loved by beauty bloggers, this is the best fake tan out there to give you a golden, I've just been to the beach kind of look.

If you are a little scared to use a fake tan or just want a more subtle healthy glow that you can gradually build up, then these are for you. Designed to be used the same way you would use your moisturiser so no hassle fuss free application right there. Plus you won't get any hint of biscuity smell with these just a fruity scent which is a bonus! 

Laguna Bronzing Powder

An absolute cult classic and a firm favourite in our make-up bags is Nars Laguna bronzing powder. Nars says '' Diffused powders with golden shimmer create an all-over warmth or contour for the face perfect for creating or enhancing the look of tanned skin '' and we couldn't agree with this more.


Products such as nail polish, lipstick and the colour of your clothes can all enhance the look of your tan if done right. Bright colours and colours which stand out are usually the way to go.



Some of our favourites are below..

Not a colour which is often seen on many girls' nails, but one that really makes a tan stand out is the colour white. The contrast in colours really shows your tan.

Coral is also another colour which looks beautiful against a tan and one we like to wear on holiday. This one by Essie called ' coral reef' is great.

GYM WEAR

With summer being well under-way and holidays already booked, us ladies want to look our best when  getting into our bikini. Going to the gym or exercise in any form is a tough effort (it is!) even for the best of us, but a little motivation in the form of some nice looking gym wear can spur us on and make going to the gym feel more of a fashionable affair.

H&M have recently released a line of gym wear in bold, bright colours.

Another of H&M's offerings in the way of bright sports gear

Stella Mccartney has also released a sportswear range in collaboration with Adidas. Now how fashionable can sportswear get!





Image: www.thetimes.co.uk

These are something that we definitely want to get our hands on. You would never believe that these are actually gym shorts. 
You can get these in most Adidas stores. 


So if you were lacking in that little extra motivation to go for that morning run, well now you have no excuse not to.
