The Look: The Stars Are Fire

I have a confession to make: I always feel sort of dorky when I'm trying to think of names for my looks. It's cringey to admit that I try and make them sound lovely and poetic (call me Wordsworth) or play on some sort of pun, like they do in the Vogue editorials. But, truth be told, I'm always laughing when I type them in my 'Post title' box. Especially this Shakespeare quote: totally bringing out the English Literature graduate in me!

** End of dork moment **

I got so excited when I spotted this top! I often think that daisies are best left to teenage girls but these florals seem mature enough for work. I mixed up my textures with a perforated midi skirt and threw in a holographic clutch. 

What's your favourite print at the moment?

P.S. I have just put up my monthly faves here- enjoy!
