[Trend] Burberry Tribal Prints

Yesterday was one of the busiest days I have had in a while, and tonnes of fun!  First of all I was lucky enough to meet furry friends, Rufus and Heidi when I caught up with Pets Pyjamas.  Then I had a fab lunch with Claire of BoBelle (very excited about her new collection, trust me it's fab) and then I wondered happily/aimlessly around Soho - pottering into shops and generally collating blog inspiration.

I am absolutely loving having some time to really put thought into my blog posts - I'm sure any blogger will tell you that they have thousands of 'mental post its' in their head about ides for posts, and no time to write them... So this is becoming rather fun again...  

One of the looks I haven't really mentioned for spring/summer through to autumn/winter are the tribal prints that are knocking around.  By that I mean the strong, coloured, bold prints that the high street (and their slightly more upmarket sisters) are producing...  It all stems from the Burberry SS12 collection, which has been heavily blogged about for it's use of embellishments, but less for the print work - so I thought I would give it a go!

This look is easy to do as you don't need much of it AT all.  Buy one top, or one item which mimics the trend and leave it at that - if you can manage it!  It certainly is a mini-trend and will go out of fashion, so bear that in mind.  First up, is a name I don't mention much - Esprit!  I wondered past their store and this top (above) was in the window.  It matches the Burberry look completely and is only £29.00.

I also spotted these fab pieces from Marks and Spencer's Limited Collection.  This line of clothing is rapidly going up in my estimations - some of their stuff is just brilliant.  The skirt (£35.00) and the dress (£39.50) are really well priced, and the print is brilliant - completely on trend. Overall, what a bargain...

I know some of the prints can be really 'out there' but you can easily dumb them down by pairing them with the basic white tee (if you're wearing a tribal skirt) or a plain pair of trousers/jeans with a top.  I really love the whole-skirt-and-plain-top-thing, here are a couple of pics I have spotted on pinterest:

Lastly, I wanted to share a naughty purchase I made at a Buy My Wardrobe event in Notting Hill a couple of months ago.  These Clements Ribeiro shoes were only £50.00 and (in my opinion) fit the whole tribal/patterned trend to a tee.  It was the first of their events that I've been to and it was amazing! I also bought a gorgeous little black dress from Stella McCartney for £35.00!  Check out their website here - make sure you go along as it's so worth the time... (and yes, I do have the smallest feet in the universe)

Not a fan of printed anything but I like the mini-skirts paired with white tops.
