baroque print/ zara ss12

Hello! It seems like it's been winter forever but the season is finaaally drawing to a close! The shops are full of beautiful SS offerings but it's too cold at the moment to be able to wear most of them. :( My first piece of SS12 clothing is the shirt featured in my look 'R U Mine?' I saw it in Zara and fell in love! The baroque print isn't too gaudy and the muted colours and silky fabric give it a luxurious feel. My leggings are also from Zara, and they're really useful as they go with pretty much everything! I think Zara has done really well with its SS12 collections, taking on the trends and producing beautiful clothes! The TRF SS12 collection is outstanding, with amazing prints and colours. Now we just need the sun to come out to embrace SS12 fully!

skulls and stripes

another simple look today. I'm wearing a blue and white striped shirt which I was so excited to find! It's a good length to wear with leggings. My leggings are from H&M (£4.99), a far cheaper alternative to the much coveted American Apparel Disco Pants (£70). I opted for my teddy coat again today, and my Dr Marten boots. :)

collar and cuffs

Hello! I put together a fairly simple look today. I can't stop wearing a jumper and collar combination at the moment! Adding a plain white collar poking out over the top of a jumper adds a cute finishing touch. I added my oversize teddy boy style coat, a bargain in the New Look sale (it was £50 to start with and I paid £15!). My jumper was a bargain find, for £2.50! The bright colours and cute floral patterns make it a great transitional piece for spring. I added the studded shoes for a bit of edge!

the coat of many colours!

hello! sorry it's been a while. I've been wanting this Urban Outfitters coat ever since I saw it but couldn't justify spending so much on it! I was so happy to find it in the sale and have been wearing ever since. I love Urban Outfitters so much, but as there's not a store nearby I don't get to go there often :(. I love the jewel colours of the coat which are easy to pick out. I also love the cosy faux fur collar and the Aztec pattern. I'm still in love with the Aztec trends which are continuing into 2012. I decided to keep the rest of the outfit fairly neutral to allow the coat to stand out!
