Hummingbirds Aplenty

The sun is out and the hummingbirds are fluttering about on my skirt. I bought this skirt, by British designer Charlotte Taylor, last year from Anthropologie. Since then it has proved to be a great addition to my wardrobe and extensive quirky print collection. I wish I had more of Charlotte Taylor's designs in my closet, as her prints creatively draw from various inspirations, most notably traditional Japanese art and nature. There is always something slightly unexpected about her prints and many are a tad off kilter. For example, from afar this skirt looks like it features an abstract pattern, but closer inspection reveals the silhouette of hummingbirds sipping nectar from trumpet flowers.

To compliment my skirt I paired it with a striped blue boat neck tee from H&M. This shirt was on sale for a mere $7 a few weeks ago, which isn't too shabby. I was on a stripe tee mission a little while back and this proved to be a frugal acquisition which can be paired with many items. In this particular pairing, I love the way the cobalt blue and yellow compliment one another. After a long stressful week and a lot of cold overcast weather, it's the perfect cheery outfit to help usher in the sunny weekend.
