What to Wear… Aztec

Recently, I’ve seen a real trend for Aztec prints and patterns on the high street and I really love it. You all know I’m a sucker for a print, but I also love a drapey knit to cocoon myself in and so when I saw this Aztec Cape I was sold.


Aztec Cape, Warehouse – £30

When I read all the feedback on Friday about fashion posts, a few of you mentioned missing seeing what various items look like on me, a real person, not a model. I haven’t done an outfit post for a while for various reasons, but it made me think it was time to bite the bullet and get them going again. I wanted to wear this as soon as I bought it so immediately dragged Pete into the garden to snap it and share with you all.



Aztec Cape, Warehouse // Jersey Top, M&S (old) // Skinny Jeans, New Look // Belt, GAP (old) // Boots, Office (old)

It’s an absolute steal at £30 and perfect for layering on in colder weather over a jersey top as I’m wearing it here or a blouse or shirt. I even think a heavier polo neck (making a comeback this year) would work in colder weather. I also think it’s a great transitional piece if you’re pregnant or post-baby and wanting something to wrap around a bump or tummy.


I hope you like it readers, and enjoy the return of What to Wear 🙂

Triple Temptation: Tribal Accents


DAY Birger Et Mikkelsen at My Wardrobe £310 // PENTRA – Western Style Fabric Ankle Boot, Bertie £83 // Maison Scotch Navajo print sleeved Mac coat at Atterley Road £185

I’ve noticed tribal inspired embroidered panel details cropping up everywhere recently and although at first glance it seems to be more of an autumnal feel, I’m imagining it channelling South Western America with Native American Indian details against a desert backdrop and teamed with faded t-shirts, skinny jeans and tasselled bags. I totally fell in love with this Mac but in actual fact, I can see the boots having massive longevity worn all through summer with cotton sun dresses, at festivals and the like, and then with warm toned knits through to autumn. (There’s also a great navy jacket at a lower price point right now in M&S with shoulder panel detail like the first one here.)

Do you like it?
