In the Fine Print | Style Spotlight: Prints!*

Hey guys and dolls!


 I'm back with another post from my Style Spotlight series; and today I'll be talking to y'all about prints. I was inspired to write this whilst doing some shopping recently in the Trafford centre in Manchester, where I came across some totally gorgeous printed pieces from Warehouse that I knew I wanted to discuss in a blog post! Also thank you to everyone that's messaged or tweeted me about my Style Spotlight series; I've been getting such fab feedback from you guys about it, and I'm honestly so glad you're all loving it.

I've scoured the internet for my favourite prints on the high street right now, so let me know in the comments below what you think of my picks, and if you've got your eye on anything right now!

Printed blouse AND funky printed wallpaper. Could this photo BE any more appropriate? (Spoken in the voice of Chandler)


Jazzy Jumpsuits!

Firstly let's just discuss why jumpsuits are so great:

1. They're a fab layering piece, perfect with a plain tee underneath in the cooler months, and fab on their own when the sun decides to show itself. (Yes for those 5 days of the year)
2. They're often fairly baggy so a GREAT way to hide a food baby after far too much food and alcohol has been consumed (guilty as charged).
3. They are just as cool as dresses but come without the risk of flashing the entire street at 8am on a windy morning walk to work. (Not cool. not cool at all)
Find me a jumpsuit more chic than this Palm Print Jumpsuit (far left) from Warehouse. The print, the cut, the neckline, the cute little sash... I'm just totally obsessed. It's a great transitional piece that would look amazing dressed down with a pair of Adidas Superstars and a straw bag, but also with some barely there heels and a little clutch.

The light blue dainty print of the H&M Ankle Length Floral Jumpsuit is so sweet and girlie and I love how floaty it looks. This again would be a perfect option to layer under a white tee if you're not quite ready to bare those shoulders, and is perfect for travelling! (You'll need to cover up when visiting religious buildings, temples and shrines and this way you'll can dress appropriately AND not end up a sweaty mess. Win)

In need of some wedding outfit inspiration? Look no further than a cute, ruffle sleeved jumpsuit. This Blossom Print one from Warehouse is a fab option if you're feeling colourful, but there are so many variations on the formal jumpsuit; whether it's one shoulder, sweetheart neckline or a bardot style. The possibilities are endless!

This Culotte Jumpsuit with a knot (award for the most uninventive product name goes to this one) from Stradivarius screams DJ Jazzy Jeff to me for all the right reasons. I just love the neon leaf print that's going on, and feel like this could be a seriously comfy and chill AF piece to rock as the weather transitions from Spring to Summer!


Animal Print Your Tootsies!


If you're not quite ready to embrace the crazy patterns from head to toe, and would rather keep them on your toes; look no further than some cute and comfy animal print sandals. I've picked out a few of my favourites that I feel are the perfect balance between statement and wearable, and I can totally see myself buying every flipping pair once this post goes live! The pointed Pony Hair Flats in the top left picture are from Karen Millen, and I love the combination of the studs with the girlie bow tie around the ankle. (Very Valentino too, which is always a good thing.)

The snake print Leather Two Part Sandals from Warehouse on the top right are my personal favourite out of all of these shoes. I love that they have a little ankle strap to stop your foot moving around too much, plus they're only £22 which is an absolute bargain! ( BRB just buying them in every colour). The bottom left shoes are the Light Pink Leopard Espadrilles from H&M and I love the fun colours they've used for these. Plus everyone needs a comfy pair of espadrilles for summer! The gorgeous Leather Crossover Sliders in the bottom right are another Warehouse find, and I feel like they're such an effortlessly cool piece, and a staple for your summer wardrobe.


Colourful Coats
Lets be realistic, as excited as I get about summer weather, we do still live in England, so it's always good to have a pretty printed jacket standing by, just in case it does start raining cats and dogs! This sweet Pink Striped Crepe Blazer from New Look is the perfect mix between tailoring and casual. The relaxed silhouette makes this wearable from workplace to after work drinks, and the pink stripes are oh so candy sweet!

Now when I think of printed bomber jackets, my mind totally goes to Karamo from Queer Eye and his addiction to wearing them. (Side note: isn't Queer Eye the most sweet, touching, emotional and magical programme you've ever watched in your life?!) This Zara printed number is so funky and retro, I'm living for it!  
And I think Karamo would be too. 

The kimono is definitely a summer staple; whether it's being worn as a light layer, or a pool cover-up. There were about a million and one different styles I could have picked for this category but this Floral Kimono jumped out at me cause of its zingy orange piping and sleek shape. Je t'adore.
