Styled By M&M – Desk To Drinks

Just as being on top of your A game at work is essential for a booming career, kicking back every now and then and treating yo’ self is also important for your mental health. But as girl boss type females who often put in extra hours, there isn’t always enough time to go home and change into something more relaxed or stylish depending on where it is you’re heading.

So by the time the clock strikes five, we seek simplicity—an easy transition to go from office-appropriate wear to stylish night attire. We reveal which business casual wardrobe pieces take us from the desk to drinks.

Styled By M&M – Floral Print Trend

“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” Miranda Priestley’s famed catty remark from The Devil Wears Prada may live on, but its been proven false time and time again.

If you like your spring with a lot of colour and wit, Fashion’s ongoing love affair with floral prints continues with soft pastel colours and vibrant hues. Be prepared to embrace your inner lady with floral print dresses, swimsuits, shoes, and even sunglasses.

While the floral print trend has been in full bloom for as long as we can remember, this year we are seeing lots of body-con dresses and floral embroidery.

Florals are all about having fun with fashion and embracing the joy and romance of spring. Maybe this is why the floral trend is one that just won’t go away.
