That summery atmosphere is filtering into the air, we’ve got the Chelsea Flower Show in full swing, an upcoming long weekend and a bit of sunshine. What better way to soak up this mood than in a bright coloured dress that channels all the glamour of The Talented Mr Ripley with it’s waist-cinching tie detail and romantic full skirt. It’s the perfect dress-up or dress-down number. Natalie x

Where would we be without our basic white shirts? Remember this humble wardrobe staple especially now that the sunshine is kicking in. Style (untucked) over a pair of ankle length denims. Vamp up with a slinky heel and add a pop of red with this sumptuous leather bag. Perfect for a smart-casual office look or weekend brunch. Natalie x

2016-05-18-one-look-RTWe haven’t given the denim skirt a look in for a while. Somewhere in your wardrobes you might have one from the last few seasons when this piece from A-line to pencil styles was one of the key wardrobe musts. Give your skirts a new season make-over. All it takes is a classic shoe style in an on-trend print for a bit of chic fashion fun. Tie your look together with a simple wardrobe basic: a t-shirt in a base tone (think black, greys, whites, navy, stone) and layer over a textured jacket. A black biker jacket would also look great here. Don’t forget to add that touch of daytime glamour with a statement accessory. Natalie x

Have a look in your wardrobes. Is there a favourite shift dress – printed or not- that you love to wear to work or in the evening? Give it an occasion refresher with some of summer’s must-have accessories for an every day look. Espadrilles are everywhere from wedge sandals to flatform style trainers. I saw the pale pink version of these navy Superga’s on Snapchat and instantly fell in love. They’ll dress down a fabulous print shift but still keep you looking chic. Blend in a  pale pink leather bag for a touch of colour. This one is from COS and they have some great low key but luxe leather styles in store now. Cover-up in a simple capsule wardrobe basic – the denim jacket and add a touch of bling. Natalie x

Last night I went to a fashion launch at Browns. It was done in conjunction with Gucci and every woman in the store was wafting about in a glorious array of Gucci sunshines colours and wild prints. It made me want to go to Italy and dress head to toe in Gucci prints eating almond granita with a hint of lemon. Failing that, now is a good time to introduce a print and summery colour to your wardrobes to vamp things up. This camisole top from Warehouse has a gorgeous pattern that makes florals look more painterly and less prim. Turbo boost this summery vibe with a bolt of yellow. Platforms are all the rage this season and they will balance out this cropped jeans length perfectly. Now you’re sunshine ready…Natalie x

Another day another a wedding. Looking for that little something extra when it comes to dressing up in style for spring occasions? Try this Reiss dress with its elegantly retro Jackie O’ style neckline and a flattering fit-and-flare cut. This style creates the illusion of a defined waist. Blend in soft pinks and rose gold touches to make those green-blue sea shades pop. Natalie x

In the spirit of crafts week, denim has become the new embroidery canvas slash patchwork cushion for fashion. From Stella McCartney to M&S whether it’s smiley face patches or embroidered flowers it’s the new way to wear your denim with a crafty twist. Here I’ve styled these Tophop jeans with one of H&M’s fluid silk blouses which you can also snap up in black. These tops are useful basics to have in your wardrobe. For a city-chic day look add a pair of black strappy heels or pointed courts and your carry-all tote. Don’t forget that an accessory like a simple chunky gold bracelet adds that final touch to any look. Natalie x
