First, choose your play suit, put it on, grab some balloons and then try to take pictures on a windy day and be happy you are not showing the whole world your goodies!

Hey! We’re Danniella and Chantelle from 2matesandablog and we are so happy to be guest blogging on Styled Rose. Gill’s love of Co- Ords, Prints all in all a ‘put together look’ resonates with us and although we both have a completely different body shape to Gill we definitely can see similarities in our style.

Steal Her Style: Olivia P

Style Steal: Olivia Palermo

Ask anyone to list the best dressed women on the planet, and Olivia Palermo would have to win a mention. Her effortless polish, coupled with a refusal to follow trends, has made her one of the most-copied tastemakers out there. And when she got married in shorts and a sweater earlier this year she completely shook up everyone’s idea of bridal wear too, even if they were by Carolina Herrera. Think preppy with a modern edge: not the easiest look to get right, but I’ve broken down the pieces you’ll need. Anchor them with natural makeup and relaxed hair to channel Olivia’s poise down to the last detail.

Off-duty denim

Blazer, Vero Moda. Lace hem camisole, Topshop. Jeans, Frame Denim. Olivia leather strap clutch, Whistles. Denim shirt, Scotch & Soda. Ballet flats, H&M.

Nobody does denim quite like Olivia. Even when she’s wearing distressed shorts or shredded boyfriend jeans, she knows how to mix them with more classic pieces: a sharp blazer or timeless stripes look effortless but polished when you add neutral flats and pared-back jewellery. Olivia loves a nude ballet pump – they tie into her chic, preppy style seamlessly – and this pair from H&M will work year-round.

Stick to the muted colour palette with this streamlined clutch from Whistles (which is very appropriately named Olivia) and you can take the look from day to evening – just swap your flats for a pair of heels. And to switch things up, you can trade jeans for a collared shirt in soft, pre-washed denim. This one from Scotch & Soda is already on sale and all it needs is a pair of dark, angular sunglasses to set it off.

Sooo I finally caved and got my hair cut. It’s been long overdue and I was hanging on to my long locks for dear life but after much begging by my colourist I agreed to have it chopped. My mum is a hairdresser so it’s pretty handy that I can just get her to cut it. I actually ended up going a lot shorter than originally planned. I had a decent trim to start with and then I went back again and just said ‘oh go for it’ and she chopped a load more off. I really wasn’t sure at first but I’ve since decided it’s a fresh change and seeing as it’s summer it seemed like the perfect time to do it. It’s also a bit lighter, I’m starting to go back to my old blonde self which I have missed a lot!

These trousers have made an appearance on the blog before a while ago so I thought it was about time I dug them back out again since it was Summer and they are nice and bright. They are from River Island and I am still in love with them as much as when I first got them. The high waist means you can wear little crop tops for a night out look if you wanted to give skinny jeans a miss for a change. I rolled the hems up to show off the shoes more plus I just prefer the look of peg trousers rolled up.

A little while ago I was browsing the Missguided website when I stumbled across this marshmallow coloured beauty. I am co-ord obsessed anyway and the colour was perfect, I couldn’t help myself and before I knew it I was typing my card information at the checkout. Kim Kardashian recently wore a few different coloured co-ords very similar to this and low and behold a few days later they were being snapped up left right and centre (for an absolute steal of the price compared to her jam packed designer-drobe) Continue reading

Co-Ord: Laura Ralph Designs

Shoes: My 1st Wish – other colours here or similar here

Any co-ord or two piece fan seriously needs to check out the talented Laura Ralph. She designs and makes two pieces in a huge range of colours, prints and fabrics. She can make crop top/trousers combos but she also makes crop top and shorts sets too. I have this print in a three piece so I can wear the crop and trousers for winter and the swap it to shorts in the summer and on holiday. I adore vintage designs and prints so this one jumped out at me when I saw it. She has a Facebook page which she posts her outfits on and it’s a first come, first served basis. She often only does one or two in certain fabrics so you have the guarantee of turning up somewhere and no one else will be rocking the same outfit as you, which is always a bonus!

I am such a sucker for pinstripes and this cami was no exception while I was browsing on ASOS at the beginning of the Summer. I had a girly night out a couple of weeks ago and wore this striped cami, ripped jeans and strappy pastel heels combo. I love having basics like this in my wardrobe as they are the perfect fall back tops for when you can’t seem to find an outfit to wear for an impending night out (despite owning enough clothes to open a small shop).
