Wearing Patterns

Sunglasses: Miu Miu
Jacket: Zara
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Boots: Miu Miu (sample sale)

I love black. It goes with everything and hides a multitude of sins, but it’s coming up to Spring and I’m trying to embrace patterns to make things less, well, dark.

When I tried this dress on in Urban Outfitters I fell head over heels in fashion lust. The pattern isn’t too garish, so it’s perfect for me to gently break in to more adventurous Spring/Summer wear (while wearing it with black, obviously). 

Most importantly, it’s a dress that actually covers my bum! Being 5ft 10, it’s near on impossible to find a dress that isn’t a maxi which will actually reach far enough down my body to retain my modesty, but this one does. It’s definitely a keeper.

Since buying this dress I’ve given in and got some amazing patterned trousers and a skirt, so it looks like I may have broken the seal! I just hope I don’t wimp out of wearing them. Watch this space!
