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

PRINTABLE INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE

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, END OF STORY


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.



{ COLOUR DISCLAIMER }
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.
