Today I'm Wearing

With the weather being so dull, I wanted to add some summer colour - buttercup yellow! For me, this is a daring colour and I'm not sure I own anything else in this particular shade! I've added a leopard print pony-hair bag to work the autumn season back into the outfit. The Dolce and Gabbana bag is on loan from my mother until I see her next time I fly home - thank you, mom! Leopard print or animal print - though a very cliche autumn pattern - it never fails to resurface every year in some way or another during the autumn/winter season. With that said, I find that on some people animal print looks great, but on me it looks a bit silly and it ages me. So that's why I always keep animal print to a minimum and I only have it a few accessories (belts, bags) with a hint of animal print.

I'm wearing a white long sleeved t-shirt, black jeans and patent black heels. The soles of the heels are gold which matches the gold hardware on the bag as well. I have kept the rest of the outfit pretty toned down to let the jacket and bag stand out. I think it's a nice contrast in colour and pattern.

Jacket- ASOS
White Shirt- ASOS

Useful Tip:
When animal print doesn't suit you in clothing, you can still try it but on your accessories to keep it toned down!
