Thrift inspiration, Doing it Matthew Williamson Style!!

On trend for this summer is 'tropical', which the Matthew Williamson for H&M range have highlighted for their summer collection. Birds and peacocks are very popular prints and are bang on trend for this season.

Matthew Williamson for H&M blouse and kaftan, due out mid May-pictures are from the Vogue UK June supplement

Earlier in the season, I spotted this cute top in my local High Street ethnic store for only £1. Made in India, its a very tropical print and such a versatile piece too.


I can wear it with the buttons done up as a blouse or open as a short sleeve jacket. The collar and sleeves have a lovely scalloped edging, so Chloe-esque!!

Will you be in to the 'tropical' trend this summer?

Great find!

Anika said...

yep, I'm a sucker for tropical print! Actually I'm a sucker for anything colourful!

Australia, meanwhile, has been bombarded by anything and everything peacock-inspired. Almost reaching overkill levels here.

Loved the pics of your day trip to Paris...lucky girl!

Hope you're having a great weekend

I just think peacock when I see it..and that's been popping up around here a good bit lately. Always love that tropical summer feel too. It seems the yellow can be over bearing sometimes, but I love the colors in this.

Thanks ladies!!

I will definitely be rocking the tropical peacock look this summer. I just got a fabulous peacock jumper from Free People (yeah, it wasn't cheap, but I rarely buy new clothes that aren't from thrift stores, etc., so I can justify it). Since I'm way too voluptous to rock a jumper that short, I'm having it converted into a blouse. I also have several tropical-themed shirts found at thrift stores over the years!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Bonnie-thanks a lot for stopping by and great to hear you are rocking this trend too!

Karen said...

Oh my word, Sharon, can you score the blouse for me somehow? I'm a Uk 8 or 10....I must have it!!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Karen-oh, the shop closed down in May, I was gutted, as I had scored some real finds from there too :-(
