One thing you can't accuse me of is playing it safe.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet, since it is around 10.08pm and I have just had a day in college followed by work & quite literally only want to see my bed. I was pretty tired to start with today, and all that activity has just floored me.. This morning, when deciding what to wear, I did my usual trick of dressing super-brightly when I feel tired - it's a real mood-booster, and means that nobody else can tell you are basically running on autopilot because they are too busy processing your look!

Blazer & Top - Topshop; Trousers & Ring - ASOS; Shoes - Dorothy Perkins; Bracelet - Lola Rose.

Today I was not content with simply wearing my new (gorgeous) floral trousers from ASOS, which I officially adore, but I decided to basically attack the eyes of the general public with some seriously mixed up florals. And let's face it, single print outfits just won't cut it anymore! I think it works because the two patterns are both floral & digitized, but slightly different, and the orange of the top picks out the neon orange element of the trousers. Since the main body of my look was so OTT and in-your-face, I styled my clashing blooms with simple black accessories and silver jewellery. I will openly admit now that I had not realised how skinny the heel was on my new black Dorothy Perkins heels - it's fair to say they aren't the most stable of shoes. But I walked around in them happily all day, and skinny heels are very du jour! 

Love and kisses, Tara xox
