Update from the blogosphere #69 – summer prints
So weâ€™re told to expect another month of this rain, and here at BrandAlley HQ weâ€™re not happy about it. What happened to spring? Well we refuse to let the rain dampen our spirits and reading your blogs this week weâ€™re all looking forward to all things summery. How does that song go again? Rain rain, go away, come again another dayâ€¦.
Colourful prints always perk us up and this season paisley scarf print inspired clothes are going to be big. Just take a look at Feed Me Clothes blogspot for inspiration. Their cute collage shows you the easy way to inject some colour into your wardrobe.
Or you could make like Style Slicker and make your own colour and print injecting pieces. We saw the first piece to this blog a few months ago and love love love the finished version of this 50â€™s inspired jacket. Itâ€™s the perfect cover up for the chillier evenings (wishful thinking, the days arenâ€™t likely to be that warm!).
If youâ€™re not ready to go big and bold in your clothes, what about doing it with your nails? Nail Varnish Vixen gave her manicure an update with some of the bright colours and tribal prints that are big this season. The two polishes from Illamasqua’s Human Fundamentalism collection–Nomad and Stance are beautiful together and the rich hues are set off fantastically with the butter LONDON black polish that defines the pattern. She says this is an easy design to do so why not have a go? Try new colour combinations too and let us know what you thought. Check out the blog for more amazing designs.
And we couldnâ€™t not show you The Rock Chicks Rambles manicure. This bandana print made us laugh when we read the inspiration behind it, but it looks great. If youâ€™ve got a steady hand, or some professional tools weâ€™d love it if you had a go and took a photo.
So the weather may be wintery but your wardrobe and nails can scream summer time.
Have a great weekend!
