I hate insects, they freak me out. They have way too many legs, too many eyes and move far too fast. It doesn't matter if they're pretty ones, like butterflies, I will still do my best to avoid being close to them. Insects in fashion though, that's a whole other matter. I find myself constantly attracted to bug prints and details. I've managed to build myself quite a little collection, including scarves, tshirts and jumpers. This collection has now grown to include more jewellery, thanks to the lovely Sugar & Vice sending me this little Grasshopper set. I love the bright green colour and knew instantly that I'd have to wear them with my green H&M dress. Green items are another small but growing collection I've been working on. I love the way it clashes with my hair. And, because you can never have enough (not real) insects in one outfit, I added my H&M but jumper over the top. It may be rather grey and shapeless but I can't get enough of the embroidered bugs. Plus it's keeps away the chill that you get from hanging about in a hallway taking photos.

Necklace and Earrings | c/o Sugar & Vice

Unlike my hatred for bugs, I'm never quite sure how I feel about wearing matching earrings and necklace sets. It seems to be a bit of a fashion faux pas but I'm not that against it. I think it works quite well for me as I usually wear my hair so it covers my ears (when I'm not taking photos to show off jewellery). With these earrings that means there's just a small flash of green, which I like, and stops it from being too matchy matchy. Of course matching earrings and necklaces don't have to be worn together. I can use each piece to inject a bit of grasshopper fun in different ways.
