A few weeks ago I was asked by Yumi if I’d like to take part in their blogger style off. I’m never one to turn down a challenge, and so of course I accepted. There was a lovely black anglaise shirt dress that I had my eye on, but in the spirit of it being a challenge, I thought it would be more fun to choose something I wouldn’t usually pick.

I went for this beautiful bird print dress, I’m not usually a fan of colour or prints, as I’m sure you know, but this really stood out to me. I love that despite there being a few bright colours in the print, it still feels quite dark, muted & melancholy, it fits in effortlessly with my style & doesn’t look out of place on me at all, like I feared it might. I think between this & my galaxy print leggings I’m now convinced that the right kind of print can actually be a nice addition to my wardrobe, and something I shouldn’t be so quick to shy away from in the future. I’ve always had a thing for birds anyway, but I think the print on this is just gorgeous with their outstretched wings, hovering above tropical flowers.

If you guys could go over to their Facebook page & give my outfit a like, it would be much appreciated! The girl with the most likes will win & get a voucher for Yumi, which I would like to giveaway to one of you, if I win! So you could choose this dress, or any of their other lovely pieces for yourself.

    Your dress looks beautiful on Steph, I’m surprised by how muted the colours are when in the outfit as a whole, despite how bright they look up close. It’s really pretty! I love your fedora too, I have been searching shops endlessly for big Winter hats like this but nowhere I’ve been has had anything in but woolly ones, much to my despair! I hope Nico is feeling better now lovely xxx

    Beautiful…and I agree with you, I think pairing these very selective prints with your signature all black look works fantastically and gives a really sophisticated look. Gorgeous!

    I like that you took a risk in going for something that isn’t your usual style. You pull it off so well!

    liked! what an interesting print steph. not something i would have picked myself but i like how you’ve styled it, the colours are great with the black, so it’s still quite dark. the shoes are really interesting close up too, did not notice the cut-out near the heels. i love the intricate lacing on those!

    Gorgeous dress, Steph. Beautiful splash of colour on your usual black, without going too far away from your signature style. Love this.
