Welcome to the jungle...

Along with the return of the nautical trend, this Spring has seen a revival of safari/jungle styled things being everywhere and too many fugly (in my opinion, what's yours?) khaki coloured jumpsuits/rompers. This may be because I hate khaki, or maybe I'm not sold on the whole romper thing...I don't see how it will translate to normal women, living normal lives and I haven't had a chance to see it in action yet since a) the inhabitants of Edinburgh are hardly fashion forward and b) it's basically still winter here, sadly!

Khaki may not be my thing but what I am loving is jungle-y accessories, like these bad boys!

Silver/black tiger brooch -, £8. Grey leopard print skirt - Topshop, £40. Elephant cuff -Roberto Cavalli at, £360. Leopard print court shoe -, £25. Green snake ring (also in pink!) -, £12. Tiger bracelet (also in orange) - Topshop, £15. Leopard bracelet - Kenneth Jay Lane at net-a-porter, £149.

And on to some "real-life" outfits created from my very own wardrobe!

Leopard hair slides - H&M

Shoes - New Look
Dress - ebay (ancient!), wooden cuff with gold bird - Oasis

"Dress" (it's more of a top when you're 5"11) - ebay, grey skinny jeans - Miss Selfridge, Cardigan - vintage, ebay, belt - vintage, ebay

Peace out! Char x x x

I like khaki as long as they have clean defined shapes, more chic.
