Flower power

There’s no denying that bold flower prints are big this season. As much as I am a big fan of prints and colours, I would advise using them with care, unless you want to end up looking like you’ve just returned from ‘Club Tropicana’.

There’s nothing wrong with the summer pyjama look as long as it’s an attire you feel comfortable in, but I wouldn’t personally jump in to cover myself in flowers and leaves at the first signs of spring. What I do find irresistible however is to spend as little as possible on pretty flowery items to bring some spring and sunshine into my life. So I bought myself this pretty Oilily purse from TK Maxx (£8.00), a pencil skirt from H&M (£14.99), lots of scarfs (£4.00 each from Primark) and flowery socks also from Primark at £2.50 for five pairs (remember my post about Socks and Sandals? – I’m planning to practice what I preach…).

But if you’re ready to embrace the tropical flowers burst, I say do it in style! Either opt for a shift dress toned down by its classical cut or for a pencil skirt which you can team up with a solid coloured summer blouse. I think my favourites this year are from Oasis – they remind me a lot of Jonathan Saunders’ last year’s collection.
