Ahhh you've got to love the fashion trickle down effect, don't you? Did everyone's newfound lust for animal prints begin with that Ganni skirt? Quite possibly. Who knows, but all I can say is, now that I am seeing animal prints absolutely everywhere at the minute, I am not mad at it at all

Animal print can be rather marmite, non? You have the camp who find it tacky and gaudy, and those who find it fun,  classic, and just a little bit risqué. I'm firmly with the latter.

See, animal prints are actually a lot more versatile than we often think. Take this cute little new look tea dress, for example. An example of a very wearable animal print - paired with a straw bag (another summer must have) and some comfy slides for a casual and understated look. It's a far cry from the loud, sexy and maximalist vibe we usually understand animal prints to have. 

 The high street always has us covered, doesn't it? This new look number is just over £20 and I'd highly advice you get your hands on it.. haven't you heard? Leopard print is a new neutral.

I wore this number for a day by the sea a few days ago and it was extremely comfy, and airy, so kept me cool all day long. I hadn't been to the seaside in years and I absolutely loved it - feeling the slightly saltier air through your hair and the sea breeze on your skin. It was so lovely to see little kids paddling around in the wet sand in puffy arm bands, and old couples holding hands whilst walking across the sea front. Obviously the day ended with an ice cream (which took me 20 minutes to decide on a flavour, only for me to opt for strawberry - predictable much?!) It was the perfect summer day out. 

Have any of you guys been to the seaside recently? And what are your thoughts on the animal print trend? 

Until next time, 
Bisous <3
