About 7 or 8 weeks ago, sent me an email to ask if I would be up for a fashion blogger style challenge. Of course, I said, I love a good challenge! It seems that I always get given the tribal trend, but I do love it so no problems there! Tribal print is a nice and less-boring way to remain in monochrome mode during Summer. I also think it's one of those trends that you can combine a few prints together and get away with it!

As it was a feature for Very Magazine (which I blogged about yesterday) I had to choose a whole daytime outfit from Very that fit the Summer trend theme, so I thought this playsuit would be perfect for it. Can you believe it is only £12?! As you can see from my other outfit posts (I know there hasn't been many recently!) that I've been LOVING playsuits, so I was keen to add another one to the collection!

Alongside that, I picked some accessories to accompany the outfit. I kept it very simple, comfortable and realistic with a cute charm bracelet and a pair of flat sandals. One thing missing is a necklace, I did choose one but it broke when it arrived so I just sent it back and did without it.

You'd think I'd used to the whole style-blogging process by now but I just didn't feel like I was doing a good enough job here. Perhaps it was the pressure of knowing these photos will definitely end up printed in a magazine, loads of people outside the blogging world will see it and I wanted them to look perfect, but I couldn't really put my finger on why it wasn't going my way. Put it this way, when I'm posting outfit photos on my own blog or social media, I STILL get nervous about it before I post/upload it. It's a good kind of nervousness, a flutter of butterflies in my stomach but there's still a feeling of hesitation as I hover over the 'publish' button. Anyway - in regards to the magazine, I was happy to see that it all worked out!

  21. It's always a bit nerve-wracking to put yourself out there, but you look fantastic in the mag.
    I don't think I actually own anything tribal, I tend to stay away from buzy prints.
