I like when a trend follows over from the past year. 'Tribal/ aztec' has been going strong for a good few years now, which makes choosing pieces easier when you know that you can pull them out of hibernation each year.
I'm not one for tuning in to passing fads much, but i will admit to buying in to a few thanks to what i can only imagine to be subliminal messaging through excellently crafted advertising campaigns.
So I was glad to see that that the tropical print was back this summer. I mean its the obvious choice for summer, right? Tropical lovely palm prints, you can't go wrong with on a balmy evening or a lovely beach holiday. This River Island palm print soft blazer was my weapon of choice last year, with me flinging it on with jeans and a tee and pronouncing myself dressed and heading out the door on many occasion.
I do love a good go-to item and this last summer was it. And it seems that may trickle over in to this year.
This time around i've paired it with some ripped white jeans and black accessories. I love how black seems to tame the summery tone down; perfect for spring i find when the sun is out but the temperatures aren't quite reaching the hot times.
My new Michael Kors bag is never far from my arm these days, i have to be fair it is most definitely bag love and my verrryy comfy Naturalizer shoes from Lotus Shoes where the natural choice for a comfy day look.
I do love when an outfit comes easily together don't you?
In other news i got my hair did and i'm super pleased with it. It's funny to think i brought the new year in with raven black hair and now i'm getting lighter and lighter.
By summer who knows, i may be full on blonde LOL... !
This time at the hairdressers i went for a sunkissed-balayage-type look, with the amount of black i had in there, i'm amazed by how much lighter we've managed to get it (by we i mean the hairdresser, i just provide the hair;)
Next time we are going to bring some of the blonde through to the front and top. Think i'm a bit addicted to this hair changing malarkey;)
