What I Wore: Aztec and Tribal


Hat Miss Selfridge / Blazer Topshop / Shorts* ASOS / Shirt Rose&Pose / Watch F&F / Bag* ASOS / Shoes Kurt Geiger (similar here) / Bracelet ASOS

This is the third and final post in my ASOS S/S14 "Gap Yeah!" trend challenge providing you with a few style ideas on how to wear tribal print! All I have to do now is wait for Spring to come round and wear these again without the tights! From the three tribal print shorts looks, I'd say that this one is the one that is most expected of me! It's the least "gap yeah!" looking style but I am in my comfort zone here, and I am wearing what I feel most relaxed in. To brighten up the black and white outfit, I chose this textured Aztec print clutch bag. It's actually sold as an ipad case, but I'm using it as a clutch! Who's going to know, eh?.... It's got a nice tapestry feel to it, and I love the colours on it. It really pops and breaks the monochrome theme of the outfit. Don't know what I would do without accessories!

I wore some jewellery and this is probably the most I've put on in a long time! The turquoise bracelet is really pretty - and maybe ties in well with the trend theme that ASOS gave me. I really didn't want to choose anything too obvious like "going away" beads or a leather necklace with a shark tooth on it.

To round up this "ways to wear" series (and in case you've missed the other posts) take a look back on the other outfits. There's this one worn with denim shirt and a white crop top, and one where I'm wearing it in all black and the shorts really stand out in this! 

These photos, and all of my other outfit photos, are taken by Niki when he has spare time to help me out. In turn, I take his blog photos but he's not always up for being in front of the camera. There's no filter on any of these photos, just clever use of Niki's photography skills and glare from afternoon sun. I'm working on a couple of photography blog posts, this is something I've been wanting to do for ages and ages! I think I've finally got a starting point which will (hopefully) help anyone with their blog photography, regardless to what camera they use. I might do a mini series of them on a weekly basis either next month or April. I've never known if it would fit in with my blog or if anyone would even anyone be interested in some photography posts? Let me know what you tips you'd like or what questions you have! I'll get my act in to gear and get these posts written up!
