Coat: Primark 
Blouse: Dorothy Perkins
Skirt: George at Asda 
Shoes: Primark

There's something I really like about mixing prints in outfits, it's not as daring or in your face as mixing and clashing colours, but a clash of prints can really add something to a look.

For a smart daytime look, I chose to pair this subtle, sheer polka dot blouse with the more dominant printed skirt and balanced everything with the neutral coloured mac, black tights and simple shoes.
I bought the blouse last year, and I've worn it endless times (usually under little jumpers... everyone knows I love a collar!) The skirt is from George at Asda's SS collection, a brand which is forever surprising me with their pieces and their prices! It's such a versatile piece for my wardrobe too, I've worn it styled smartly like this and I've also worn it with a casual grey tee tucked in, bare legs and chunky black boots... it's one of those things I find myself reaching for regularly.
As for the coat, I didn't really need it, but I like to play it safe with an extra layer at least until mid May, even though it feels like Summer already! I have to say it's one of my best ever buys from Primark, it's so easy to wear and it goes with everything.

In other news, today is my Sunday, I've had two days off work where I've managed to catch up on emails, schedule a couple of blog posts, catch some sun and watch all the episodes of One Tree Hill... I might even clean my makeup brushes and paint my nails this afternoon! Don't feel too sorry for me though, I had a jam packed week last week, which I vlogged! The video will be edited and up on my YouTube channel tomorrow, so you can subscribe here if you don't want to miss that.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
