Liz wears - Shirt - H&M Trend (in-store only) | Shorts - Iro (past season)| Shoes - Topshop (past season)| Bag - H&M (in-store only) | Sunglasses - Versace | Ring - Saint Laurent| Bracelets - Maria Francesca Pepe, Whistles, Asos 

I feel at my comfiest when I'm wearing jeans so naturally a pair of denim cut offs are my go-to wardrobe staple when I'm on holiday or the sun is shining! I love that you can dress denim shorts up or down like you can a pair of jeans, you won't often find me floating around in a maxi dress I much prefer separates... so much more versatile!

Georgina wears: Top - H&M Trend / Skirt - H&M Trend / Shoes - Senso / Jewellery - Cos(cuff), Hermes, Whistles

Last weekend Liz and I made a quick weekend trip to one of our favourite places, Port Grimaud in the South of France. It's a great place to chill and relax with a glass of good rosé. A fab start to the summer! So, onto the outfit... 
there are so many crop top styles around at the moment, many of which can be a little scary and I'm sure most people feel the same (unless you have the body of a 16 year old or are super toned). Anyway, I found this one from H&M a little while ago and for some reason didn't seem too scary, I soon realised the perfect match is a high waisted skirt. I love the high/low combination of the hemlines on both the skirt and top (the top dips at the back) and was a perfect look to team with my new Senso shoes for an evening trip into St Tropez. I love my new shoes and in fact I am a little obsessed with Australian brand Senso, they have so many amazing styles at the moment!

Clockwise from top left - Skirt - Zara | Bag - Isabel Marant | Shorts - J Brand | Blouse - Maison Scotch | Bracelet - Dany Levy | Sunglasses - Linda Farrow x The Row | Jacket - H&M | Cap - Topshop Necklace - Dezso

We've spotted a lot of boho vibes around at the moment which is no surprise as we head into summer holidays and the festival season... it's such a laid back trend and most of the boho styles make you look so effortlessly cool. The trend never seems to fade away, ever since the Sienna days it manages to revive itself each summer.  We've put together a few pieces that we'd love as staples in our holiday wardrobe, we say bring on summer so we can all be boho babes and live happily ever after!

Georgina wears: Top - Kooples | Jeans - H&M Trend | Trainers - Vans | Eye Necklace - Urban Outfitters | Rings - Aldo, Whistles, Topshop

I'm not usually a fan of H&M denim just because I don't like the fit and their pockets on my bum! I always tend to go for premium denim, but I'm pretty pleased with these black ones. The tribal embroidery down the sides drew me in, I thought they would look awful on but hey I'm actually pretty pleased with them. Although they are black I feel like they are a little summery, with a slight crop and an Isabel Marant vibe - the ideal summer jean for me! I'm wearing another red top again..I don't actually like red things on me too much but I'm guessing I love the lace style enough to wear it anyway!

Leather Jacket - H&M New Icons (sold out online) | Top - Zara | Jeans - Joes Jeans (last summer season)| Bag - H&M | Shoes - Isabel Marant | Necklace H&M Trend | Ring - LeivanKash | Bracelets - CC Skye & Asos  

I've been searching for the perfect leather jacket for a while now...I'm talking years! I never felt like they fitted me properly and just felt too much like an actual 'biker' jacket. I have always been envious of Georgina wearing her Acne jacket with absolutely anything and it working. So I finally found this bad boy from the H&M New Icons collection and as soon as I tried it on I knew I had found the perfect leather jacket for me. I can already tell that it will be my go-to jacket this year and the quality of the leather is actually really good, the price was a bonus too! 

This season is all about mix and matching your prints, I've paired a classic Breton stripe with an ikat print which in my head doesn't work but in reality maybe it does!

Georgina wears: Top - Three Floor | Jeans - J Brand | Shoes - Nine West | Bracelet - Pheobe Coleman | Bag - Celine

Liz got me this Three Floor tee in Feb for my birthday and I absolutely love it but feel like I haven't given it much attention (I also have the bomber that she gave me for Xmas..need to show that some lovin' too)! I love it 'cos I can wear it day to night..just gotta add some heels! I'm obsessed with the luxe detail and contrast panelling that most of the Three Floor collection features, so much so that Liz and I have just ordered four pieces between us from their latest drop which launched today..will post once they arrive :) 
I got these shoes as a gift a while ago but have been waiting to let my ankles see the light of day, finally it's warm enough and I am most definitely one for a chunky gold chain!

This cool and fun trend seems to be making it's presence everywhere from Moncler's puffa jackets to dresses to totes it seems there is no escaping tropical inspired prints this season....and why would you want to?! We're loving that if you can't be in paradise you can wear a slice of it in some shape or form, and if you are lucky enough to be jetting off to a palm tree paradise this summer make sure you pack one of these items (or all) for the perfect holiday get up!

Liz wears - Jacket - Iro | Tee - LnA | Jeans - Genetic Denim | Shoes - Kurt Geiger | Bag - Rebecca Minkoff MAB | Belt - American Retro | Necklaces - H&M and similar here  | Sunglasses - Versace

So I decided to update some of my old Genetic Denim jeans that have been pushed to the back of my wardrobe for quite some time now. They've made their way there not because I don't like them anymore, they are the softest jeans ever and super comfortable, but just because I think the wash is rather summery. Anyway I wanted to update them a bit and given that there is a massive trend for ripped denim at the moment I decided to add a few of my own DIY rips and now I love them even more! I used this YouTube video as a reminder of how to do it properly! What do you think?

                                 Maria Francesca Pepe Lapis Heart NecklaceProenza Schouler Clutch

Liz's Love: One of my latest obsessions is Maria Francesca Pepe jewellery, I adore all of the jewels from her collection. I already have a ring and bangle by MFP so I think a necklace would be a perfect addition to my collection! I love the double layered chain and pendant. It's cute but fierce at the same time - I like!
Georgina's Love: This is the perfect, on trend update to Proenza Schouler's classic PS11 shoulder bag, I just love anything metallic or mirrored right now!  I'm really feeling smaller bags at the moment too so this is right up my street for a day look or perfect for adding a touch of glam to an evening out

Georgina wears: Jacket - Helmut Lang / Top - Topshop / Skort - Zara / Trainers - Nike Roshe / Ring - Topshop

When I saw the black version of this skort/skirt/culottes (or whatever you want to call them), I loved it but never actually got round to getting one. Anyway I'm glad I didn't seeing as these came out, and yep I'm loving the colour (obvs!) Love it! I will be dressing it up and down but here I went for a somewhat sporty attire, pairing it with my Kenzo inspired Topshop number..looking rather colourful for me! I'm also wearing a couple of old classics like my Chanel 2.55, I haven't worn it for an age but today I felt like giving it a whirl, along with my Helmut Lang blazer/jacket that I use time and time again, it's the perfect inbetweeny jacket but a new one is on the wish list!

Bomber  - Zara | Denim Jacket - Zara | Jeans - J Brand | Hi-Tops - Converse | Bag - Alexander Wang Robyn Hobo 

When I saw this sequin bomber in Zara I knew I had to have it, I love the luxe look it has and was immediately drawn to its shininess. I like the fact it's a piece that can be dressed up or down....here I've layered it over a denim jacket and paired with my equally as sparkly converse hi-tops which gives a casual laid back look even though I feel a bit like a disco ball! I can easily smarten it up by pairing with heels and a silk cami if need be, the perfect bomber I'd say!
