I used to be a floral fan. A really ditsy print kind of gal. I still am at times. There’s the odd occasion I put on a floral dress and I’m like YES this is it! But over the last couple of years I’ve definitely loaned myself to liking patterns a lot more. Lot’s of patterns. Bright, loud and in your face patterns. Spots, stripes, geometric shapes and all that’s in between. But now we’re on to a new phase. We’re on to the phase of wearing different patterns at the same time. But wait. There’s more. I’m talking about wearing different patterns on ONE piece of clothing! I know! It’s crazy right? Ok, so I know it isn’t revolutionary but from someone who used to wear all black, this is a big deal. It’s also mega exciting. Talk about a whole wardrobe revamp!
One of my favourite pieces at the moment that is doing this mixed print trend really well is this gorgeous midi skirt from Pretty Little Thing. It’s a size 26 and has a super stretchy waistband so perfect for my size 28 or 30 beauties too. One side is spotty and the other is striped. Well, I say spotty but PLT says Dalmatian print. I LOVE THAT!!!!!!!!!
It’s pleated so gives that sexy sashay feel when you walk. You know what I’m talking about. That HELLO I HAVE ARRIVED kinda vibe. It’s a really pretty skirt and because it’s black and white you can pretty much wear whatever you want with it. Any colour, any style. Heels, flats, jumpers, vests… literally, anything. It’s so versatile and one of the reasons why I love it! I have a feeling this skirt is going to see me all the way through the summer months too. Bring on the sun and all the prints please!
