Clash of the prints feat. Radley Bloomsbury | Fashion

If you read my blog regularly, you'll know I'm certainly no stranger to clashing prints. Actually, I think I only tend to wear clothes that have clashing prints nowadays, but anyway, this was one of my latest outfit posts. I took it last week before the dreaded summer cold/tonsillitis hit me and made me nestle away to watch numerous seasons of House, MD on Netflix. We all know this is my current obsession and won't end until the eighth season.

One of the main features of my outfit, and what I think holds the outfit together perfectly by adding a pop of bright colour to it, my gorgeous Radley Bloomsbury. I never used to be a fan of Radley bags until I saw this one, I've always been put off with the large dog tag however, the dog is so small and cute on this that it looks really amazing. The Radley Bloomsbury is from their heritage range, and looks very similar to a hat box. I think this is what really attracted me to the bag, as well as the gorgeous bright turquoise colour. The bag is large enough to fit my purse, keys, and phone. It comes with internal compartments to fit your phone in however, I have an iPhone 6 Plus so mine doesn't, but the bag opens very well (not fully) so nothing falls out. The bag also comes with a dust bag to keep it protected at all times.

It looks very sleek and chic, and comes in two other colours: grey and midnight blue. Both are absolutely gorgeous and would match my wardrobe down to a tee. I've had a look at a couple of their other bags in the heritage range and I must admit have been really pleasantly surprised. Not a brand I would have initially bought from, but definitely wouldn't overlook next time. I'm a sucker for a good quality leather bag, and they meet all my needs.

It's easily become my go-to grab bag, now Dexter is older and I can store his nappies and wipes in his new buggy, I have no need to cart my enormous nappy changing bag everywhere I go. I have so many things in my wardrobe that will work so well with this bag, and it definitely fits in with my prints and vintage themed wardrobe.

My outfit consists of New Look Inspire black joggers that I picked up in the sale a couple of months back, teamed with (yet again) a New Look Inspire black square print top, also picked up in the same sale, along with my trusty Primark jacket that cost me £3 a couple of years back, yet again in the sale. The shoes are just standard £4 black ballet pumps from Primark. Can you see a theme going on here? All of these are old season clothes so aren't available online.

Also, yes my hair is blue, but this was a complete accident. I bought the wrong hair dye that I presumed was the one I needed only to discover after I had applied it as a tint, that I'd used the 'colour shot' for extra vivid grey colour. Only I'd used that as a colour, not a shot. It's fading to a sea-green that I'm not too keen on, so I think I'll be going pink/lavender again next week.
