As Spring is in the air and tiny buds are appearing it’s time to unveil a hint of growth, sprigs more than full grown blooms. At this time of year I bring out my Guess cotton shirt, with its delicate ditsy blooms. Small detailed prints have a vintage feel, perfect for now and less showy than big and bold which will be perfect for high summer.

Mary Katrantzou, queen of modern prints shows how to do it with multiple ditsy prints and embroidery – a bit of pruning may be required for most of us!

Uniqlo has also linked up with Liberty’s finest and produced their high street range of garments just bursting with Spring blossoms.

And of course, Boden, always has softly printed shirts in the collection, in light weight cottons ideal for layering under knitwear too.

I hope you enjoy the obvious flowering similes, it seemed like a good idea! (Not so sure now!)

Here’s hoping Spring stays close by.
