Perfect Print

Hey Guys and Dolls!

First of all I think I owe you all an apology. My blog posts have been very thin on the ground since I returned from my trip to Africa. I don’t really have an excuse for my lack of posts, its just laziness really. Must try harder!

Anyway today I want to share with you an outfit I have been wearing a lot lately

Printed trousers I really love wearing this outfit it feels so fun and playful. As you may have noticed in previous posts I am a fan of big bold prints and this outfit certainly has a lot of them. I will admit this look is quite loud and won’t be to everyone’s taste. Mixing different prints can be quite tricky and doesn’t always work. When putting this look together I tried to create a sense of symmetry by matching the colour of the top to the shoes and balancing the floral print of the trousers with the floral print on my headband. Because there is so much going on with the clothes I have kept my hair, makeup and accessories very minimal.

I have to say how much I love these trousers. The cut and fit is just perfect which is surprising as they only cost £25. They feel very feminine to wear, as does the top which is slightly cropped and so shows a cheeky bit of flesh.

You have probably noticed my new hair colour. It is very similar to my natural colour. I haven’t had brown hair for years and I must say it feels really odd to have such a natural look. I am liking it at the moment but it probably won’t last too long!

Hope you all had a great weekend 🙂

Wardrobe for an African adventure

Hey Guys and Dolls!

It’s not long now until my trip to South Africa and Botswana, 22 sleeps to go! So I have started thinking about what I will be wearing. I’m really just using this trip as an excuse to buy a new spring wardrobe. I want to wear some of the key trends for spring such as florals, western and graphic prints whilst also being practical for the weather and the activities I will be doing.

I have put together a couple of fashion moodboards for inspiration.
