Hello again,

It’s pretty hard (as well as devastating) to believe that there is only a short time of summer remaining. I can honestly say this is one of the best summers I have had, potentially the best one yet. I’ve found myself venturing out of the house a lot more – a couple of years ago, my mental health influenced me to be a hermit in every sense of the word. But, with growth and patience, I’ve managed to become one of those people who actually enjoy stepping out of their comfort zone from time to time…

However, stepping out of your comfort zone can come in many scenarios, shapes and forms. This summertime, we’ve witnessed the most mesmerising array of animal prints be scattered all over the high street. I’ve always been a pretty avid admirer of leopard print, but from afar; whenever I myself sported the iconic print, I found myself feeling like a Kat Slater wannabe – and I’m sure I’m not alone! One of my style icons, Alexa Chung, has always inspired me greatly when it comes to styling leopard print. She really makes it her own by injecting it into her wardrobe in such a subtle yet classy manner. It’s safe to say I’ve taken many notes from Chung over the years.

Today, however, I will be writing about another gorgeous animal print that has taken the high street by storm this season – snake skin. Admittedly a print I had never really taken a significant interest in, I have invested in a couple of snake print items as of late, and I can confidently report that it’s a pretty damn fun print to infuse into your everyday attires. Here are some items I’ve been absolutely loving lately…







Funnily enough, I recently wore this shirt for the first time the other day and my sister told me she had ordered it herself! Great minds think alike, evidently. I absolutely adore the tones within this pattern, I feel as though it could easily be continued to be worn way into autumn. It seems as though animal print have definitely overtaken the conventional floral pattern takeover we annually see each summer. Animal print is clearly the new black.







I think one of the major things that drew me towards this iconic shirt, though, is the boxy-masculine fit. It kind of gives the vibes of a bowling get-up, or perhaps a stressed out Dad on holiday… The versatility is off the charts with this one, and I can’t wait to style it in so many ways…

I wrote recently about how Topshop have been absolutely killing it with the co-ord game this year. This jacket is no exception – I did refrain from investing in the matching skirt, as I have discovered that denim skirts and I have a rather rocky relationship. With great patience, effort and searching – it’s time to admit defeat. Every denim skirt I have owned I end up selling on! So I felt just the jacket would suffice, and if you are a regular reader of mine, you’ll know that I am a sucker for a jacket…

I adore the cropped length of this gem; the waist length falls pleasantly at my hips, resulting in it feeling rather feminine. I am a lover of an oversized monster of a denim jacket as much as the next gal, but from time to time, wearing something that is actually your correct size is actually rather pleasant, surprisingly. I know – who would’ve thought it?





Although this snakey number may not be ideal for the upcoming winter months when those harsh British cold temperatures creeps in, I feel as though it’s perfect for that confusing summer to autumn transition stage where you don’t quite know how to dress yourself. I am not looking forward to that, I must admit, but finding pieces like this ahead of that awkward time is rather satisfying!

So that’s a wrap…

Thank you for reading into one of many prints I’ve been lusting over this summer! Until next time,
