OOTD: FLEATHER - Floral Print & Pleather!

Thursday, 9 May 2013


Fashion trends I love this summer:
Floral Print 


Hey guys!

Before I immediately jump into my new-but-not-quite outfit of the day post, I'd like to first apologise for my absence this and last week - I've been insanely busy with college work and revision seeing as exams are approaching very very soon, and if you've seen my Twitter lately, you'll know that I was in London for the first time ever on bank holiday Monday, which was an amazing experience (but I shall tell you all about that in a future post!). 

I'm going to try my best to keep updating as regularly as I can, but I can't make any promises. Unfortunately, for now, revision and exams are going to have to take top priority in my life (yay) until they're over for the summer. But fear not - I have plenty of outfit photos planned for upcoming weeks!


As anyone else living in the UK will know, we've had some really great weather this week (exluding the rain today of course ☹). Luckily enough, the day I went to London was probably the best day there was, seeing as it was 20 degrees (!) and the sun was shining beautifully throughout the entire day. 

I actually wore this top on the day, too, but with disco pants instead of the pleather skirt - I got no photos of that outfit unfortunately but this will be from the Tuesday before college. Enjoy!

As soon as summer begins I always get the biggest urge to bring out anything and everything floral printed I can find in my closet. Unfortunately, I'm kinda lacking in summer clothes at the moment (why I own so much black clothes I'll never know!). However, stuffed far behind at the back of all my wintery jumpers, I found this pretty blue petal dress I bought a few years ago from New Look - I've had it for so long, yet never really worn it that much. 

I decided I'd try and be a little inventive with it, though - instead of wearing as a dress, I thought it'd look pretty cool to tuck it into my high-waisted pleather skirt instead. I'd have never thought to pair floral print with leather before, but I really like the look it creates - kind of an edgy yet girly, summery style! 

What's your fave summer trend for 2013? Thoughts on floral print and pleather combos?

Let me know what you think in the comments :-)
