Style Snag: Stone Style (Part 2)

As  promised, here's round due of us style stalking the ever so fashionable Emma Stone. Haven't read Part 1 yet? Then STOP and get your eyeballs over here
 
We never get sick of fun prints, and neither does Emma! They're the perfect way to inject some pizzazz to an outfit. Paired with basic staples from your wardrobe, a patterned piece whether it be a cute clutch or shorts, can seriously up your fashionista status. And the best thing about this trend? You don't need to fork out a week's worth of rent. We scored both the patterned shorts and trousers styled in this post for under $20!
 
I Outfit One I
 
Tailored trousers ooze sophistication, and add a fun print to the mix, you've got yourself a winning combination. Don't get us wrong, we're all about bright bold colours, but a monochrome palette makes for a more sleek and mature look.

Florals have probably come up in every post we've written, but hey, we're not complaining! It's such an easy pattern to pull off and a breeze to style. Take a note out of Emma's book and keep it simple with a basic slouchy top and minimal accessories for a casual chic ensemble.

Botanical Prints

 
Flowers are in full bloom as we settle into Spring, and it seems that they're making it onto our clothes too. Inspired by photographic floral prints, jungles and exotic flowers, botanical prints are one of this season's star trends. Whether you start small or go all out, there is no better way to make a Springtime statement than with a bold, vibrant print!
 
 
Outfit #1
 
Say hello to ultimate style and comfort!! This dress combines two of our favourites of this season's trends. This Oasap shift dress is perfect for those carefree days and the photographic floral print will inject an explosion of colour into your Spring wardrobe.
 
 DRESS: Oasap / SUNGLASSES: Portmans / RING: Lovisa / SANDALS: Miss Shop 
 
 
 




Outfit #2
 
Keep it simple. Pair a statement piece like this Oasap romper with neutral shoes and accesssories to let the print take centre stage.

Black Muddled Teal

 
What better way to spice up your Spring than with a pair of fun patterned shades! Tortoiseshell and animal prints are classics, especially among conservative fashionistas, because of the muted tones . But we were feeling a little adventurous when perusing the  Vision Direct site. Spoilt for choice, we finally settled on these butterfly framed sunnies.  These Von Zipper beauties  are perfect for those who want the added, yet subtle pop of colour, with Black Muddled Teal frames and pink gradient lenses. Like the Vogue pair we reviewed in our last post ( here), we were impressed by the make of these glasses, and not to mention the complimentary lens cleaners they cam with!
 
 
I The Outfit I
 
 Comfy. Casual. Chic. The 3 Cs that sum up our style. This outfit is something you can quickly throw on and look like you've spent the whole night planning. We think that the gold hardware on the clutch and heeled sandal add the perfect touch of sass to the simple denim dress. Pop on a pair of patterned sunnies and you've got all of the 3 Cs covered!

Beige Tortoise

 
With the sun now making a bright daily appearance, sunglasses have become a compulsary accessory for us. We love the way something so simple can instantly transform an entire outfit. For the last year, we've been desperately hunting  for new shades to add to our dismal collection with no luck. So when we were contaced by the lovely people at Vision Direct we did not waste any time!
 
The classic wayfares have been facing some stiff competiton on the sunglassees market of late with all the fashion movers and shakers seemingly taking a liking to round and cat eye frames. Retro shaped shades have been on the top of our list for yonks, but with our petite faces, they all seem to drown us. But as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait, right?! So after a few hours (yes, hours) scrolling through Vision Direct's website and their overwhelming range, we hit jackpot and managed to find 2 shades that we are already obsessed with. In today's, post we'll be styling 1 of these.
 

These Vogue Eyewear sungalsesses come in 9 different shades, but we opted for Beige Tortoise because they are a refreshing change from the typical black or brown frames, but still quite neutral. Although, if you look carefully, the edge of the frame is cerulean which adds a quirky pop of colour.

 The brown tinted lens on these bad boys are round and reminiscent of the 50s, but it's the frame which gives them a cat eye finish. If you're a serial sunglass snapper, then this may be just what you need. The frames are well made and sturdy but still extremely light as a feather, making it the perfect accessory for your bikini when you hit the sand this summer!

I THE OUTFIT I
We call this our lazy sunday outfit which is probably something you'd catch us in if we're heading to the beach or planning on a no frills, relaxing day. You can pair the shades with something bright and bold, but we like the look of the taupe frames against a crisp white top

Keep your eyes peeled because we'll be styling the second pair of sunnies we picked up very soon. Trust us, you won't be disappointed!

Spring Affair I Florals + Denim


If we could only wear 2 things for the rest of our lives, it would have to be hands down florals and denim! They are the 2 timeless trends that have captured the fashion world's heart over the years, and occupy a hefty chunk of our closet. So we thought we'd pay homage to our beloved florals and denim by sharing with you 2 recent additions to our ever growing collection from Choies.

 
I  THE FLORALS  I
 
Now, this isn't your ordinary, run of the mill floral top. The oriental flowers definitely are refreshingly more mature than your typical girl next door, sweet floral designs. The one thing we weren't sure about when picking out this top was the peplum detailing on either side of the waist. We never jumped on the peplum bandwagon, but the ruffles on this top are a lot more subtle and less structured which is what turned us off the peplum when it first came onto fashion the scene.

I  THE DENIM  I
 
Move over LBD and hello LDD (Little Denim Dress)!! A denim dress should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe and something we could argue is more versatile than the good ol' LBD. Light wash denim is relatively neutral, so it's styling potential is endless. We decided to stick to nude and gold accessories for a chic and clean look.

The one thing we have to say about this dress is that ironing this thing takes quite some time. So it's definitely not the type of dress you'll be wearing when you're in a rush to dash out the door. Aside from that, we think we'll be fighting all season long over this dress!
