Ice cream colours...

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

So the lovely Matalan asked me to take part in their next style challenge: Colour Blocking..
never one to turn down a styling opportunity I gladly accepted.
They sent me a £50 voucher and gave me one week to style the outfit and photograph it.
Colour Blocking is one trend ive been wanting to try for ages, I love colour but being a huge print fan, blocks of plain colour was gonna be hard for me..

Not only that but Matalan is full of fabulous florals, polka dots, tribal and aztec prints that kept tempting me..in the end I cheated slightly and added in a stripe, but i love the final result. This is definitely an outfit that is 'me' and it'll be an outfit i wear again for sure..
