Summer, please?

After spending so much time and effort yesterday style-stalking Mary Katrantzou & her designs, I have to admit that print was on my mind today. It's one of the biggest SS'12 trends, and is one of the only known cures for the winter blues - especially a good vibrant floral pattern. It may be the middle of winter, everything may be dull and grey, but that won't stop me breaking out a summer dress..

Dress & Shoes - New Look; Blazer - ASOS; Tights & Belt - Primark; Earrings - Topshop; Bracelet - Accessorize; Necklace & Ring - Temporary Secretary.
I've broken a bit of a trend here & used a candid, very un-posed photo - but honestly, it just made me laugh. My silly cat was determined to get in the picture, and broke my pose as I tried to shoo him away. He apparently won, since his body and tail are pretty much taking over the photo!

Anyway, as I was saying.. summer dress. Yes, today I had a craving for summery print and decided to break out one of my favourite throw-it-on summer dresses. Usually I would wear this one with just a belt, some sandals and sunnies, but even I know that is vastly inappropriate now - so I opted for my beloved blazer, some slightly clashing tights and quirky accessories. This type of outfit is more typical of the Tara of 2010/11 - my winter wardrobe literally used to be my summer wardrobe with a blazer and tights, but this year the knitwear obsession kicked in, and I fell in love with snuggly-warm clothes.. It feels kind of good to return to my old classic style. It's a similar feeling to reading a story you wrote in primary school - familiar & comforting. This has also reminded me that classic combos will work forever.. Love and kisses, Tara xox


  1. That dress is so cute!

  2. I love wearing floral prints and summery dresses in these grey cold months. They always perk up my spirits. Temporary Secretary jewellery is just adorable! xo

    Ps - I will review the products in the order that I get requests, so of course I will review Dandelion :). xo
