I'm a stickler for routine, my own style and ways of 'doing things'. One part perfectionist, another part determined, but mostly a pretty airy-fairy kinda gal, last weekend I downed tools and teamed up with Westfield London for a little challenge of the styling and shopping variety. My favourite.

With my main blogging gal pal Aisling in for the ride, we picked up our complimentary £150 gift card, that Isa so kindly organised for us, from the concierge desk and hopped over to shop. The Style Me, Style You Challenge aimed to get us thinking about styling a trend on a friend, getting them into a look they wouldn't usually sport. With some Wagamama and Snog as our brain food, we set to work…

Aisling went for the neon trend, something that I prefer to stray away from. By 'stray away from', I evidently mean, 'avoid at all costs', given my mostly blacks wardrobe. ;) On we sauntered, and after a little deliberation with our Westfield London gift card (some of the sales advisors in each store were unsure about its' use), Aisling styled me up in this ensemble, and here's what she has to say on the matter:
I’ve been waiting to get my styling mitts on Miss Daisy Bee for quite some time now, as I’ve always enjoy dressing other people more than myself. Although I do love Michelle’s style, I couldn’t wait to inject a bit of colour in to her wardrobe. If I had endless amounts of money, I would have loved to get her in an all out printed suit like this one from Topshop, but perhaps that would have been trying to turn her into my mini me! That’s why as soon as I spotted the Zara neon dress; I knew it would be perfect. To finish her outfit, I added a Topshop lace crop top (which definitely took some convincing) and bit of candy bling from H&M.
I absolutely adore this Zara dress and can see it looking oh so cute for late summer evenings with a hint of a tan and some plaited sandals. Out of my comfort zone and on trend? Check. Aisling also paired it with a white lace cropped top by Topshop underneath. A cropped top on Daisybutter? Say it isn't so! The contrast in colour and adding a simple neutral makes the look much more me, and perfect for the inkling of spring that we're experiencing. Topped with a stunning statement jewel from H&M, I'm pleasantly surprised by a splash of colour.

Following a successful day of style swapping and trend shopping, we then wrapped up our afternoon with a large, brain freeze worthy frozen yoghurt and swapping of oh-em-gee Made in Chelsea chatter, and headed off to Vogue Festival for some Donatella Versace and squabble-for-a-coffee-cup action.

To see me styling Aisling in skintight monochrome and the summer black, head over to Fash-ling for more Style Me, Style You goodness here
