Calling all Print and Pattern phobes..

If you're the type of person who doesn't like to wear or mix any prints/patterns and are more comfortable with a little hint here and there, then I hear ya! Up until recently, I was you!

One morning, by accident, I suddenly realised I could mix different prints together without being offensive to the eyes, the key here is to be clever about it.

There are so many different types of prints these days, and I still tend to go for a subtler look, by mixing one printed and colourful piece with one of a solid colour. You may be thinking, 'How does that constitute a print?!' but it doesn't all have to be abstract imagery and a mirage of colour, its so simple to create patterns through stitch and texture that you don't have to confine yourself to what you originally thought made up a print.

See below, I am a full on daisy, but due to fabric choice and some clever stitching I don't look like I've been attacked by a flower show.. 

Unless you are outrageously confident and/or daring, I keep the look grounded by choosing simpler shoes and accessories, but by no mean does it need to be a neutral!!
