Hiya everyone!

I thought I'd share with you a shoot I did a few weeks back with Rachel Cottam , a photographer who I have been collaborating with recently. The location was an abandoned bank in Blackburn which had beautiful exposed walls and wires hanging from the ceiling. Fortunately I knew someone who could get the keys so it's such a great opportunity to shoot in these locations. It was absolutely freezing by the way, so I was wearing so many layers! I chose to layer two shirts on top of one another, as I love my Chinese patterned shirt from Next, but I thought it would look so much better with a collar, so I added my white Boohoo shirt underneath. I love to clash patterns, so I wore the shirts with a Chinese style asymmetric skirt from Topshop. I think it's still okay to clash patterns as long as the colours go together.

What do you guys think? Do you ever clash patterns?

Love Emma xx
