Twist On The Trend

This is a bit of a different post to usual but something I'm really excited about. Earlier in the week Jess and Paloma from 'Cos it's the Bee's Knees contacted me and asked if I would be interested in being a part of a new blogger group in which we would each do our own take on a current trend and showcase them all together collectively on all of our blogs. Of course I jumped at the opportunity and the girls quickly told me that the first trend for me to do my take on would be 'berry shades' which cover burgundy, red. purple, pink and everything in-between.

The 'Twist On The Trend' group:

Top Row: Lizzie from The Dust on The Ground, Yours truly, Jane from The Tale of Two Buttons and Emily from The Tale of Two Buttons

BERRY SHADES

Bottom Row: Paloma from 'Cos it's the Bee's Knees, Jess from 'Cos it's the Bee's Knees and Bree from The Urban Umbrella

Doesn't everyone look fab! It's really inspirational to see everyone wearing all different items that fit into the berry shades trend to suit all different levels of how smart/casual you want to be. This is going to be a fortnightly feature on all of our blogs so stay tuned to see more twists, it's also a really good opportunity to discover new bloggers that you wouldn't have found otherwise.

So, onto my outfit, I decided to use my trusty burgundy jeans from Miss Selfridge for this trend, they are really versatile. This H+M shirt is lovely and silky and contrasts with the deeper berry shade of the jeans quite well, It's always important to style your accessories/make-up around a trend too, so I painted my nails with my favourite shade for Autumn and a spot of Korres lip butter which is a lovely deep pink.



Blouse: H+M
Jeans: Miss Selfridge
Watch: ASOS
Nails: Nails inc in 'Piccadilly Circus'
Lips: Korres Lip Butter in 'Quince'

Hope you have enjoyed the first Twist On The Trend feature, be sure to check out these lovely ladies' blogs!
