Pretty in Prints
A few weeks back I was asked to write a post about prints as part of a campaign being run by Bonmarché. I’ll be honest, I declined initially as I don’t really DO prints, at least not what many people would call “pretty”. I was asked to reconsider and I decided why the hell not, I can use this opportunity to show off some of my personal style – it’s a good enough reason as any.
A few weeks have passed; I’ve moved house and settled back into work and a whole new lifestyle (more about that soon I promise) and I’ve put off this post just a little. You see, the clothes I wear on a daily basis are usually just blocks of colour, predominantly turquoises, blacks, greys and blues. But I dedicated a day to paying attention to the prints that I come across so here’s a print diary for one normal day in my life.
This post showed me how much I steer away from prints, especially in my wardrobe ( undies and socks being the exception to the rule). Perhaps I need to become more adventurous. What do you think of prints in general? Love or loathe?
