What to Wear: Tribal

One of the big trends I haven’t really dabbled in so far this season is the tribal trend, mainly because I haven’t seen anything I really liked. That was until I spotted this skirt, in Marks and Spencer.


Skirt, Marks and Spencer Limited Collection // Tee, French Connection // Bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs // Necklace, Zara // Jelly ballet flats, Jimmy Choo (old)

Despite the fact that I don’t feature Marks and Spencer very much, that is mainly because of the online image quality, not because I’m not a staunch supporter of the brand. I wear M&S underwear, love their interiors products and buy several pieces from the Limited and Autograph collections every year. I think this summer has been a bit dry if I’m honest but when I popped in last week I left with three different clothing pieces and 2 sets of underwear. Very happy with myself indeed.

I can see how a skirt like this, all pattern and colour might scare some of you and I say, if in doubt team it with neutrals. I love fresh whites with brights like this – it just feel so summery and I actually wore this last Friday to work with a crisp white shirt (incidentally also an M&S Autograph purchase) with tan and yellow heels.

Of course, me being me, I had an abundance of brights to team it with, but kept the whole look grounded with a simple white T’shirt, tucked in to streamline the look. It dressed the smarter shape of the skirt down and then I picked out and complemented the bright palette with my coral neon edged straw bag and a yellow neon necklace. Perfect for shopping with my sister and an evening cocktail.

Incidentally, the print is also available in a dress if you’re looking for one. Will you be wearing tribal this summer?

[Bridal] Style Steal: Dune v Choo

Obviously, Florence Finds isn’t about weddings or bridal style, although there are lots of ideas here that you might want to incorporate into your big day, from beauty and hair to fashion. However, knowing that plenty of you reading are planning weddings or will in the future, when I saw this style steal I just had to share. And with Mahj’s wedding gracing Florence‘s pages, there couldn’t be a better time right?

One of the ever popular wedding shoe styles that I saw when I was working in the industry were a pair of Jimmy Choo platform heels. Metallic and super sparkly, they were neutral enough for bridal but infinitely wearable after the big day. Of course not everyone can afford a pair of Choos so when I saw this pair I thought of all those people. Here at Florence Finds, style is for everyone and you can get the look at a fraction of the price in Dune.

Dune – Bornio Metallic Platform court shoe £99
Jimmy Choo Clue – £395
(And the peep toes I mentioned above? Ailsa)

So there you have it, from me to you, a bridal style steal 🙂

Love,
Rebecca
