Style Theory: High streets stores are awash with fabulous prints this summer, it is all about the 60s and 70s boho look which will continue into AW14. Contrasting prints are clashed against one another on garments, to create a bold, new look. Small, repeat patterns are mixed with larger exaggerated whimsical prints. It is a move on from previous years stripes and florals combination..so it is time to be brave and start mixing it up!

|Cos Dress £79|
|Dune Shoe £75|
|Topshop Limited Edition Tee and Wrap Skirt £135|
I have these trousers, they are really comfortable but do come up short (I am 5ft2ish) and they fit me lengthways perfectly so I would not recommend for ladies blesssed with height (see them in My Style below).
|Topshop Zig Zag Trousers £40|
These Topshop trousers are great for daytime as they are cool and flattering. I wore mine with a camisole top tucked in but am looking for a tops with a small pattern on to clash it up a little and make it look slightly edgier.

Bag: TK Maxx
