Butterflies

For some bizarre reason, in my early teens I became obsessed with butterflies on clothing, stationary, homeware and accessories. I couldn’t tell you what on earth started it. At least, my pink obsession could be explained by Barbie. Ha Ha. I get beyond excited when I see butterfly prints on clothing and almost always buy them. They always look adorable and feminine, but not the easiest of patterns to incorporate into an outfit.

I also adore butterflies...I buy things subconsciously not even noticing that it relates somehow to a butterfly.

My Nan collected butterflies, so we always picked up butterfly things for her, & she had butterflies all over her house & garden. Since she passed away, I've found that I now subconsciously collect butterflies myself. I'm drawn to butterfly print without even realising half the time. I've got lots of things with butterflies on - seems that they really are rather popular, seeing your other comments!

I need those shorts and that top. How I wish I had Topshop here...or if the website even shipped to Canada. Ahh butterflies are such an amazing print.

Clare said...

Those this collage! Butterflies always remind me of my sister. She went through a phase where she was obsessed with them

Kim-Anh NGUYEN said...

love the butterfly charm necklace!!! :)

Josie said...

Love this print but totally agree -- it can certainly be hard to incorporate. I think small doses (like that scarf!) are definitely the key.
