I thought this top was so cute when I saw it on the Topshop website that I just couldn't resist it! It's not something I would normally go for but I can't seem to stop buying prints and monochrome this season- as you can probably tell from my recent posts! The panther on the front is stitched not printed and the jumper is a really soft knit making it feel more luxurious. I've paired it with this simple jersey skater skirt, also from Topshop, but the top would look equally nice with black skinny jeans or riding pants. I added the orange bag for a splash of colour and (unashamedly) I have orange nails to match! 

For this look I wanted a softer, more relaxed hairstyle so I hunted out my Babyliss Conical Wand from the bottom of my wardrobe! Although the curls don't last very well on me (my hair is very uncooperative!) they fall out into nice waves and I think it's a style I'm going to use on my hair more often.

This outfit is perfect for the 'in-between' season we are having at the moment. Not quite warm enough for Spring clothes but moving away from the arctic temperatures in England lately. I can't wait to wear this outfit when I return to university tomorrow!

Large graphic and geometric prints are a big trend this season. Look on the high street and you'll see squares, stripes, dots and straight line patterns everywhere. I bought this top in Topshop a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it! It's really unusual with the contrasts in black and white and satisfies my need for the graphic trend and the monochrome trend simultaneously! 

I'm not really one to layer different prints together as I like there to be one focal point to the outfit. For that reason I've paired this top with a pair of burgundy jeans and my Topshop pointed court shoes. It's a simple but effective outfit, I can't wait to embrace prints more this season!
