We're All Going on a Summer Holiday

Bag Servant's post earlier this week took me to the summer tropics and beyond. It got me dreaming of long, lazy days spent languishing by a pool, and it got me dreaming of vivid pink cocktails (mine's a mocktail, obviously). But, most of all, it got me dreaming of my perfect summer wardrobe.

This season, the shops are awash with tropical prints - think flamingoes, fruits, florals. Thanks to Stella McCartney's wave of Hawaiian prints for her Resort 2012 collection, pretty much anything goes! Just take a look at Beyonce rocking her tropical print McCartney trousers...

Anyway, this is the season to have a bit of fun and just enjoy your clothes! It seems that the more garish and tacky, the better. Charlotte Olympia has even designed a playful clutch bag around the humble leaf.

So, top up your wardrobe with these "totally tropical" (sorry, I was desperate to say that - do you remember the Lilt advert?!) picks. Take a look for some inspiration...
