Colourful skirt, colourful street in Buenos Aires

buenos aires

Throughout most of my trip in South America I was in a daze from all the amazing street art. So much so I was inspired to wear a colourful skirt that almost camouflaged me into the bustling city. Pairing the patterned mini with a plain white t-shirt and a leather backpack, which I picked up at market in La Paz (more on this and my leather obsession later). colourful skirt, white top colouful skirt & street art This colourful skirt is my way of slowly moving towards colour, pattern and print. Even though basics and neutral tones will always be my thing! It’s amazing what a bit of colourful print can do for a look. If you’re like me, and not so adventurous with print, then it’s important to balance prints with plain colours so that the print stands out without clashing. Naturally a go-to white t-shirt is my favourite way of balancing a colourful skirt and bold pattern. skirt white top colouful street full look These particular pictures were taken in a suburb called San Telmo in Buenos Aires – a city I’ve fallen head over heels for. It’s probably because it reminds me a lot of Europe with a strong New York/big city feel but with the added bonus of a South American flare (insert the dancer with red dress emoji – only the best emoticon everrrr). Basically what I’m trying to say is that if you’re ever in Argentina make sure you go to Buenos Aires, I’ll do a post more on the city later. buenos aires street colouful skirt, top, bag
