Pattern Contrasting

Over here in England we're finally experiencing our first glimpses of Summer with warmer weather, gazillions of blossom and boomin' business in pub gardens.
However, the weather in England is never one to be trusted as this could all be an illusion and the next second we have overcast and a great, big chill lingering about.
Which is why I still opt for my jackets/coats/jumpers on the occasion as knowing my luck the moment I dress for Summer is the moment the weather does a 360 and I'm left shivering to my bones.
I purchased this coat from the Topshop sale a couple of weeks ago as I've been trying to get my mitts on a leopard print jacket/coat for some time now and never seemed to find exactly what I wanted.
I'm not too much of a big fan of the faux fur leopard print coats that I've seen around but with a thinner fabric and a boyfriend cut, I fell head over heals in love with this bad boy. It'll also see me through Spring without getting too hot or smothering!

Next is a Primark piece that I picked up before our little trip to Edinburgh as Gingham is another little print that I've been craving to mix and match with my wardrobe for some time now.
I found this adorable peplum style blouse just hanging like a dream on a hanger in front of me and knew it was meant to be.
I'm already rocking this piece many different ways, whether that's with Mom jeans or dungaree's- it's such a versatile print!
I've then pulled out a little throwback in the form of my Joni jeans from Topshop with the ripped knee's, a pair of jeans I haven't worn in forever? They're pretty faded and no the greatest fit anymore but I still love them just the same and can add a much more casual vibe to any of my outfits with a little bit of distressing.

Accessories! I have my Adidas Stan Smiths on my feet, trusty, comfy and a classic piece. Then I have my brand spanking new Grandad style glasses, which every male in my family seem to despise yet I can't get enough of them.
I'm even thinking about adding to my reading glasses collection and seeing what other styles I can pull off.
Ironically, I had to wear glasses all through Primary school because my eye sight was pretty shoddy and I absolutely hated my specs- however, I'm now exploring the realms of non-prescription glasses and wearing them as an accessory? Very odd.
