NAVAJO NIGHT AND DAY

Sitting here at home hiding from the rain and thunderous grey sky. Sidetracked by a sale notification email, I strayed in to the new TopShop collection. Inspired by one of my friends who recently bought a patterned poncho which she successfully drapes over trousers and sweaters for winter walking and sequin dresses with heels for evenings out. I found these two similar ‘Navajo Coatigans‘ (I prefer to call them jackets) and started playing around with spring outfit ideas. I need an escape from these black leggings that are so easy and quick to pull on when it’s cold, need to take more care and thought in my everyday clothes.

I find rainy days the best for fashion foraging, where are you getting your Spring wardrobe inspiration?

    I am so in love with the navajo print these days. It began with a beaded shirt from forever 21 that I found back in April and ever since then, I’ve bought so many navajo-inspired things it’s not even funny!

    Hello. I am Navajo. Please get the name spelled right, even if it is said it is spelled right. It’s not. Some of these items are knock offs of the real thing. Most of the items pictured here are not Navajo. Each tribe has different clothing.

    Please appreciate what the clothing stands for. I am sure people would get offended when the name is wrong, especially if the person is in high trend fashion like Ralph Lauren.

      Sorry about the spelling Heather, I do apologise, I can’t believe I spelt it wrong and no-one else pointed it out, it was in reference to a TopShop item and an approximate styling to get the feel.
