We’d like to personally thank Pollie Ferraz for bringing a touch of Spring cheer into our lives with her Flower Fever look. Pollie has taken the concept on mixed prints and added her own fashion flair. The shorts are vintage, the bag is thrifted and she made the shirt herself! What an eco-hero!

Copy her flowery blouse in this Komodo Fair Trade Billie Blouse from Fashion Conscience (above left). Embrace your inner geek by buttoning it to the top and tucking into these pretty pre-loved floral shorts on ASOS Marketplace (above centre). Break up the prints with a skinny tan belt and a pair of tan brougues. Alternatively you can follow Pollie’s example by tying up the shirt and breaking up the prints with your own skin. If you fancy taking the plunge and dying your hair red too make sure you opt for a natural change with Herbatint. We love this Crimson Red shade (above right) perfect for making an impact.

Pollie is a designer/blogger and you can see everything she has to say on her blog bohemianbones.blogspot.com. For more tips and inspiration on vintage shopping check out this great video…
