spring in my step.



The sun was shining and I felt a bit more cheerful yesterday, so decided to wear 3 different patterns in one outfit! Breaking ALL the rules!

I needed to wear something practical as I was going to the tip (fun times!) so shorts and DMs and keeping my hair out of the way seemed like a good choice. This top is one of my new favourite things. I found it in a charity shop in andover and HAD to have it. You can never ever have too many striped tops, and I love that this one is a bit different! The headscarf is made from a top that my mum made in the 70s! I absolutely love the fabric.

Wearing lots of patterns together is FUN! Do it!

  10. This outfit is so pretty, you look fab! I think it's a silly rule when people say prints shouldn't be mixed in certain ways, what's fashion without fun and risk?!

  25. Sometimes pattern clashing can work REALLY well! I have a pair of black pinstriped knickers I like to wear with a leopard print cardigan. You'd be surprised how well it works.
