Happy Sunday Everybody!
Have you heard about the Newest Collaboration with H&M?
Well this autumn, the Swedish high street retailer H&M have tapped into another British print brand to inject some quintessential craftsmanship into its high-street bringing us an array of beautiful prints from the one and only Morris & Co.
For those of you who don’t know who William Morris is, he is a trained architect, turned to print designer and became known for his innovative designs which transformed the world of decorative arts.
As he rose to become a celebrated member of the Arts and Crafts Movement, he would begin to amass a vast archive of prints that designers still call upon for inspiration today.
Floral and animal prints most familiar in the world of interiors made their fashion debuts in this collection and includes strong tailoring in its jackets, coats and trousers but takes a more romantic approach with the dress and blouses. This stunning collection injects the perfect amount of country chic into your wardrobe for this autumn-winter and I must say I absolutely love it!
The Collection launched on October 4th and many of the pieces just flew out, however there are still some of the collection can still be picked up in-store and online – Here.
One of my favourite items from the collection was the WILLIAM MORRIS & CO. x H&M Maxi dress. It’s an airy, patterned, textured weave with a small stand-up collar, concealed buttons at the top and long sleeves with narrow elastic cuffs.
I wore this dress for the Athlone TownCentre #StyleSensation last weekend but got around to finally shooting the look on the beautiful grounds of Castle Leslie.
Happy Shopping Ladies

So some of you may or (may not have noticed) that I have been slightly MIA and to be honest it is simply down to time. Sometimes life just takes over and I find it more and more difficult to find the time to actually sit down and write a blog post.
Now that I am back teaching three days, styling for Athlone Town Centre, Jervis Shopping Centre, freelance styling, doing my TV fashion slots and collaborating with many companies, while still trying to keep my social media sites alive with new content is becoming more and more difficult. This is not a complaint because of course it’s great to be busy but sometimes I feel the pressure of trying to find time to shoot looks with my photographer and write blog posts quite hard. So I shot this look with my sister in between clients and events in the record the time of fifteen minutes!!
A lot of positives has happened over the Summer which I never even really got around telling you about, some were being asked to judge at the Galway Races (I really loved this and right in my comfort zone). Becoming a new stylist with Weekend AM – Virgin Media to most recently becoming a finalist in the Beauty Blog Awards for ‘ Best Fashion Influencer’ which might I add, I’m still in shock!! The awards night is Thursday and I just picked up my outfit this evening, which I’m looking forward to showing you guys. It would also be fantastic if you could pop over and give me one last vote as the lines close tomorrow. Ill attach the link if you would like to vote. (Vote Here).
I also recently collaborated with The Marshes shopping Centre on the ‘Marshes Haul of Fame’, this was so much fun! Myself and a few other influencer’s were gifted with some vouchers to spend in the centre and then to report back to all our lovely followers with what we found! I must say there were so many fabulous pieces and I could have shopped all day! I posted lots of the outfits that caught my eye over on my instagram highlights so you can pop over there and have a look, you will find them in my ‘Fashion’ highlight- https://www.instagram.com/rebecca_rose_stylist/
I managed to dwindle my choices down, which might I add wasn’t particularly easy! But here is my final look below, I hope you like it.
I’m actually going to London in the middle of October and was going to save my outfit until then but to be honest I just couldn’t wait to show you! And anyway there’s no reason why I can’t wear and post it again on the grid.. right?!
The entire look is so very Autumnal and great mix and match pieces. All items are from River Island and available in the Marshes Shopping Centre.
Anyway gals I must dash, as I have to go and get ready for school tomorrow.
Lots of Love,
Rebecca Rose Xx
