March has arrived and we are longing for lighter days and fresh spring air.
The reason we love spring so much is it allows us to completely revamp our heavy wardrobe of chunky knits and earthy tones and brightens our days with softer fabrics and warm spring colours.
Spring is the time to break out of the cocoon we have been hibernating in for the last 6 months and shake off our old selves and start over.
We have some gorgeous new arrives and some amazing pieces returning again this season.
Beautiful crisp white & nude crochet pieces – prefect for garden parties and summer weddings.
The return of the two piece – Start those summer holiday essentials (because the outfits are just as important as the holiday, right?)
lets not also forget the perfect accessory
The weather will start to get a little warm which means sleeves will get shorter, this calls for arm candy!
We hope you are looking forward to lighter days and warmer nights as much as we are!
I think its safe to say we are avidly awaiting BBQ season with a cool glass of Pimms, Ed Sheeran serenading us and of course our greatest accessory – the girls!

Have a great week – The O&L team xo

Taking a flatlay is way harder than it looks! At Olive & Lile HQ, we are obsessed with them. We think its a super cute and creative way to show you our products! So our stylist has put together her top tips for getting the perfect flat lay for Instagram.
Lighting is what will make or break your flatlay, so the brighter the better. We think daylight is the best, but if the room your shooting in has bad lighting we recommend investing in a ring light to keep the picture nice and bright, to show off all the amazing details in your flatlay!
Flatlays are all about telling a story, and every prop counts – so choose wisely. Ask yourself what are you trying to portray, whats your theme? We love featuring fresh blooms and interior products in ours. Some of our favourite shops to pick up the perfect flatlay props; Amazon Ebay Etsy & random little homeware boutiques.
When planning your flatlay, there are some amazing websites to get ideas and inspiration. Our favourites are Pinterest & We Heart It.
Angles are so important in a flat lay, don’t be surprised if you take 200 shots of the same flatlay each time at a different angle, and slightly tweaking the positioning of the the items! It takes a few goes to get the insta perfect shot.
Once you’ve got the perfect shot, edit the lighting and sharpening, put on your fav filter and then your flatlay is Insta ready! For more of our flatlay’s, follow our Instagram & Pinterest
