There was a time, about two years ago that I was a little obsessed with tropical prints. They were all over the high street and I loved every single piece on offer. I also did go a little mad and bought quite a lot of the same trend. Funnily enough, I’m currently going a little mad over a tropical print dress from Karen Millen, so it’s good to see much hasn’t changed in two years!
Well I wanted to do my very first studio shoot in the massive living room of my old apartment and while I generally liked the end result, I somehow felt too self-conscious to post the images. It’s a bit of a pity as they’re quite cool and I love the clothes in them! I have to say the styling I done for this shoot is pretty good!
I really went all out with the bright neon colours and clashed it with an array of tropical prints. In saying it, the high street gave me lots of gems to work with, so it wasn’t half as hard as this polka dot trend I’m trying to style right now.
This shoot consists of three different looks, but I thought I’d do a look per post, so this is the first of three.
I went for a casual, beach vibe for this outfit and even though it was the height of summer when this shoot was done, I love the River Island high tops I have here. Sure your feet might be a little sweaty, but they look so nice! I still wear them quite a lot, two years later. They were also the shoes that got me through my pregnancy! :-)
I also like the clashing of the neon vest with the tropical shorts and underneath was a very cute Zara bikini top that you can see better in an image further down the post.
