So we're on Day 2 of my takeover with George at Asda and today I've gone for this rather slouchy, boho vibe.  This over-sized floral shirt is perfect for layering over jeans or leggings if you're that way inclined.  The print is so pretty and perfect for this season and best of all the shirt is chiffon and bat-winged...thus meaning lightweight and airy on the old armpits (oh yes!).  These boyfriend jeans are some of the best that I've seen on the high street as they really are a boy fit, none of this high waisted 'mom' fit nonsense.  They come as full length jeans but I've turned them up so I could pop on  pair of heels and just polish the look slightly.  I don't go anywhere without keeping a pair of flats with me so these super-comfy jeweled sandals are perfect for a quick change in this summer heat when one feels the need to dash up and down the tube escalators.  Please note, I don't partake in this kind of activity for fun, I'm just always rushing to get somewhere

George At Asda Takeover

Monday, 28 July 2014

This week I'm doing an Instagram Blogger Takeover with George at Asda so make sure you follow their account (@georgeatasda) to see exclusive pics!  They have some great pieces in right now and it's all so affordable.  I'm a big lover of the G21 range because there are some amazing prints and styles to choose from.  I love these shorts from the G21 range and they are a great day to night piece.  The guys at George have spoilt me and sent me loads from their current range so stay tuned for the rest of the week to check out my other outfits!

White On White

Friday, 25 July 2014

Happy Friday!  I spent the day yesterday filming some beauty looks with my all time fave Barry M!  Their amazing make-up ambassador and MUA Adam Burrell created some gorgeous day to night looks using some new products which will be available in September and the 'how to' videos which we filmed yesterday will be on the Barry M YouTube channel and here on the blog for you to watch also in September.

Ahead Of Time

Thursday, 24 July 2014

I've already begun collecting my new AW14 wardrobe and in a slightly eager attempt to jump ahead to next season, I wore a jumper (Topshop) in 30 degrees.  It wasn't smart and it wasn't funny.  The trousers on the other hand (another AW14 purchase from Topshop) are perfect for this weather, the wide leg allows, errrrrrr, air circulation? Mmmm, yes, air cirulation!  They are my favourite culotte-esque length and they could well be a runner for a Fashion Week ensamble (Who knows!).  Now me mustn't forget these monochrome shoes because they are might fine for a price tag of only £39!  Well done Miss Selfridge, well done!

Lace Love

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

Sorry for the lateness of today's post but I was out shooting it in Knightsbridge this afternoon, yet again in the blistering London heat...hence the iced Starbucks in hand!  This lace bralet from Topshop had a lot of love on Instagram so I thought I'd use it in a post to show you how I would style it.  I do have a few other outfit ideas in mind with it and hopefully i'll be able to don those before the summer is out!

Floral Grid

Tuesday, 22 July 2014

I've always had a thing about stripes and florals.  Every time I wear something floral I instantly find myself search for a striped piece to fit into the ensemble somehow.  I got these floral check dungarees from Missguided last week and have been waiting for a slightly cooler day to wear them.  They are a lightweight fabric but with this heat I need to be wearing the bare minimum amount of fabric.

Summer In The City

Monday, 21 July 2014

I don't think I'll be the only Londoner to be moaning about the heat right now.  Friday was an absolute sweaty wash-out for me.  I went to Shoreditch to the Ace Hotel for an awards brunch with Asos Fashion Finder and Urban Outfitters.  The temperature got up to something crazy like 34 degrees, and normally I'd be enjoying the heat, but when your in London it's not so enjoyable, especially when it comes to our public transport (always crammed under someone's sweaty armpit...vom!).  I wore this cute new season coord from New Look as I knew it would keep me as cool as I could get because of the lightweight fabric.  It's fair to say I lost the jacket half way through the day as the heat was just too much.  In the evening I was treated (By Claires Accessories) to an amazing open air concert to watch Sam Smith perform in the courtyard at Somerset House.  Again this was the perfect casual outfit for a gig!

Day 'n' Night

Friday, 18 July 2014

The maxi dress, a great summer staple and also a great day to night piece!  I was sent this gorgeous snake print maxi from Missguided to style as day to night.  I used to think maxi dresses were a bit of a 'cheat' when it comes to fashion because there's not much to do with them, they are in themselves an outfit.  However over time my thoughts have changed and playing around with the styling during this post I came up with so many options.  For my 'day' look I chose this Missguided washed out black denim jacket and threw a basic white tee on over the dress (to hide that low v!) and knotted it at the side of the waist to give some shape.  I'm not much of a flats girl so I have heeled chelsea boots on but you could add some kind of biker boot or even a flat sandal or gladiator as a flat option.  My 'night' look is simple; the dress, killer heels and a leather jacket thrown over my shoulders.  In this case, the dress, and that neckline can do all the talking!

River Island Christmas 14 - My Alternative Lookbook

Thursday, 17 July 2014

Kind of like the alternative Christmas message, this is my alternative Christmas Lookbook for River Island.  I was invited by the River Island press team to spend the day in a studio whilst they shot their Christmas 14' Lookbook, the twist being that I was going to shoot my own version.  As we all know, Christmas just seems to sneak up on us so talking about this in July isn't all that ridiculous really.  So what's in store for us this Christmas from our fave high street store I hear you ask?  Well, faux fur is an absolute definite, bling in ample quantities and lets not forget that knitwear.  It may sound like a textbook Christmas collection but you really need to see it to appreciate it in all it's glory!  Today I'm off to the official press day so catch my updates and constant over-excitement by following me on Instagram (@emmhill).

In The Fringe

Wednesday, 16 July 2014

Who says you need to be festival bound to wear a cocktail of crochet and fringing?!  I spotted this incredible top on a member of Topshop staff in the Oxford Street branch last week and dragged my friend Charlotte off in search of it.  It's pretty pricey (£65) for something that is essentially made of holes but it does have leather patches all over it which have clearly bumped up the price.  It's got great movement in the long fringe trim and is light enough for hot summer days so all round a perfect summer staple!
