Tropical Printed Pencil Skirts

Tropical and exotic prints are a great look for this summer and are a fun way to mix things up in your wardrobe. Tropical prints can be small, delicate pieces or big and bold with plenty of colour.

Wear these show-stopper skirts with a top in a solid colour from the print, to add a little refinement to your ensemble, add a block heel and as usual for a busy print, keep accessories to a minimum. If anything, wear simple and dainty gold jewellery.

Remember—when you wear a loud print, the rest of your outfit should stick to only one or two more colours (including your accessories)!

How to Wear Victorian Blouses

How to Embrace Victorian-Inspired Clothing Trend

While the Victorian trend may seem over the top to some, there are ways to wear it without looking like you’ve time traveled in from 1850. Because there isn’t anything more romantic than ruffles, lace, and high-neck collars and I can’t wait to wear some of these beautiful blouses. 

The easiest way is a lace turtleneck ruffled white shirt, that looks fab with your high waisted trousers, a simple a-line skirt, or your favourite skinny jeans.

While these blouses can steal the spotlight, they do look great layered. Style them under blazers, biker jackets, dresses, and sweaters. This kind of blouse can look great under a short-sleeved cashmere tee, a grey tweed sheath dress, a classic pantsuit, a distressed denim jacket, a v-neck merino sweater. You’ll find a blouse of this type can be quite versatile no matter your personal style.

The simple Victorian take: a bit of sheer, white lace, ruffles in either a shirt, a dress, a skirt. Paired with a denim item it’ll be a very chic fresh look.

You just can't lose with a Victorian blouse. With jeans, a midi skirt, mannish trouser… it always looks the business.

Free Printable: YOU CAN


You can, end of story! One of the most important things you need to be successful is to believe in your ability, believe in yourself.  It’s easier said than done, I know.  This free printable is a quote to remind you and inspire you, That YOU CAN!


You can download the quote artwork here.

This printable I’ve created can fit 20cm x 28cm (± 8" x 10") in size so that they can easily be printed and inserted into a standard size photo album. Photos are High resolution for optimal print quality.

But keep in mind these are for personal use only. I am giving them away because I didn't make up these quotes. I just collected them throughout the year and turned them into small graphics. They are not my words and certainly are not mine to sell.

All printers and monitors reproduce colours differently. Because of this, I cannot guarantee that what you see on your monitor will match your final pieces, exactly.

The Fishnet Tight Trend

I can’t get away from fishnets on Instagram at the moment and it’s driving me mad. There is nothing chic or classy about fishnet tights, and there is nothing attractive about how the fishnet trend is being worn this season, or is it just me?

But, how do you make this wardrobe staple more winter friendly? According to the Kardashian's and Jenner's... all you have to do is throw a pair of your fishnets underneath! But does this really provide you much more warmth? The answer is no, and what seemed to be a cool weather trend, has now been carried into spring. While yes, we all want to stay warm during the winter, is that the real issue here with this so called "trend?" I personally think that we should be more concerned here with the fact that putting skimpy, slightly slutty tights under really ripped jeans has officially become a fashion statement - and not a good one.

It’s just another stupid trend in a long line of stupid trends that only exist on Instagram. These people can’t possibly be wearing fishnets underneath their mom jeans, in real life... right? And if they are, maybe we really need to start asking what it takes to be a ‘style blogger '. That being said, it’s a trend – either you’ll love it or you’ll hate it.

The controversial trend took off on the AW16 catwalks and we've spotted loads of celebs jumping on the bandwagon ever since - Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Kendall Jenner and Gwyneth Paltrow to name just a few.

It’s the perfect example of how micro-trends tend to go viral within an insular community. Someone bangs a pair of fishnets under their ripped jeans, hashtags it and voilĂ ! It’s all over the ’gram within a week. Fishnets under pants (and over tops) is going to be one of those micro trends that disappears in the click of a finger. (I hope) Don’t believe everything you see on Instagram. Firstly, these influencers may be being paid to tell you that something is good, when they’d never really be caught dead in it.

The only time I say they look good is when a micro-sized fishnet is a worn, its a subtle way to sport the trend. From a distance it’s almost hard to tell that they are fishnets, thats why its so great.  Nobody wants to see the top of your tights sticking out your pants or skirt. It's Hideous. 

I'd say happy shopping, but this is seriously one trend I cannot get behind, and I really hope none of you are giving life to this Kardashian induced catastrophe either. After all, I'm sure their next crazy fashion whim isn't too far off.

Everybody is different, and so is there fashion taste.  So, if you feel up to trying this trend here is some street Style inspiration below if you keen on trying the trend...
