Magpie!

So Im a bit of a magpie when it comes to prints. At the moment I'm pretty obsessed with tribal prints and really can't get enough of them. Recently i popped into Topshop just for a little browse not intending to buy anything. In my experience these are the most dangerous shopping trips and this one definately lived up to expectations. I picked up these shorts reduced for about £23 because there was a mark on the yellow thread detail at the front. However after a little bit of TLC you would never know.

Although it is June, it is still cold and rainy which means tights and boots. Today I teamed my shorts with a baggy black top also from Topshop, black tights, my green Doc Martens and a matching green leather satchel handmade in Mexico. I kept my jewellery quite simple with a few bracelets I always wear, a few vintage bangles and a vintage charm bracelet, as well as a long vintage necklace with a key pendant which you can't see in the pictures.


I love the colours and patterns on these shorts, it really brightens up the outfit. They also look amazing with a sheer white shirt and brown leather belt.
Shorts - Topshop - £23
Doc Martens - Bought for $40
Handmade leather satchel - Mexico 
Tribal patterns look really good layers. A recent editorial in the June 2012 edition of Harpers Bazaar hows this perfectly by layering swimsuits with tribal print jackets, boots and shawls. I haven't seen much work by the photographer Paola Kudacki before but the feel in these images is really soft and feminine which makes the prints stand out even more. It really gives the pieces the wow factor.
