Dreaming Of Sun In A Python Pleated Skirt

February marks the start of me counting down to warmer days, which ultimately leads to shopping for the spring and summer months. And so, I present to you, my first piece for the seasons ahead: a python pleated skirt courtesy of Topshop.

I’ve never really been into animal patterns, but I’m loving python prints these days. I love the colour combination on this skirt, as well as the subtle pleat and slit detail.

While the piece is more trendy than what I typically would go for, it can be dressed up or down. I chose a more laidback casual look as it’s not warm enough to be wearing sandals in London. I mean, it if February after all.

Studded leather boots felt like a more appropriate choice when pairing it with a simple black t-shirt.

Have any of you started collecting pieces for spring/summer? Let me know in the comments below.
