I love a great animal print and these leopard trousers from ZARA are exactly what I craved for this summer. I really like the fact that the pattern is a touch darker on the back – working wonders on my behind! But it seems that all trousers cut differently making the gradients appear different on each pair. I have decided to offset the straight trouser cut with black peplum top from ASOS, Bershka heels (old) and a gold ring from NEXT.

Added to my wardrobe: Zara Printed Sandals

Another animal print addition to my shoe collection. I could not resist taking a pic of these printed leather sandals from Zara as soon as they came out of the box! These sandals are a perfect summer staple! I will be wearing them with my mini messenger bag in leopard print, also from Zara, here. Don’t you think they will look great together?

Things that make me go ‘Ooh’: Animal Print & Polka Dots

It’s still very frosty outside, but with shops slowly introducing spring stock it is all getting me very excited for the next season. I look at my wardrobe and ask myself ‘Am I prepared for spring, when it does finally come?

Animal print is always on my mind. Sorry, I keep going on and on about it, but it’s an uncontrollable obsession. I always try to incorporate this print into an outfit in minimalist way, even if it means holding myself back from doing an all over print overdose.

What’s so wonderful about these items in particular, you say?
Well, it’s quite simple – they do half of the job of mixing print for you.

I love how NEWBARK clutch incorporated polka dots with animal print, this unusual combination surprisingly works. And CHARLOTTE D’ORSAY pumps carry a zingy colour injection for that fresh spring feel.

I just cannot wait for spring to come!
