Print on Print

             I have always admired people who can pull off print on prints. Unfortunately I have never been brave enough to attempt to pull off this tricky trend. So I thought its now or never. I wanted to pick totally different prints which  will not compliment each other when put together. Chose two prints I have always wanted to try together, polka dots and coconut leaf print. ( blog- polka dots and Coconut leaf print yay?) I love this blazer, especially the print because it reminds me of sunny holidays by the beach and that thought it self is enough to keep me going till summer. My obsession with anything cobalt blue was the main reason I picked these trousers, which is totally in this summer.

I kept the accessories to a minimum because I wanted the prints to do all the talking. I also love the fact that the trousers are cropped. Thought I'd use the Off white top to break the two prints a bit because I still wasn't convinced that I was doing the prints justice. However I am very pleased with the outcome.

NY Fashion week 2013 - Rachel Zoe

I have always loved Rachel Zoe the stylist and its safe to say after seeing her fall collection I am definitely in love with Rachel Zoe the designer. You can clearly see her styling experience in her designs. I am a sucker for layering as it saves me lots of money when buying things for ever changing seasons. If I am shopping for summer I like to see different ways of layering a piece for winter. And this look is my favorite because I can dust out one of my summer play suits and wear it in the winter and keep my self warm at the same time.

 I have put my version of this outfit together. The trick is to keep things simple depending on the occasion. Because this playsuit has got a very pretty floral print I have picked a simple shirt to wear underneath. The orange collar and blue cuff trims on the shirt brings out the colors on the playsuit out more. If you want to give a more twist to this outfit go for black ankle boots and handbag. And Don't forget to throw on a pair of tights If it s freezing cold. Remember you can recycle any of your summer pieces with clever layering like this.

Polka Dots and Coconut leaf print - yay??

                   I’m trying to pull together an outfit to try these two prints together. Bought the polka dot trousers for a mere £5.99 in Gap ( bargain) the coconut leaf print blazer for £30 from Quiz. Will upload pictures with outfit soon…
