OOTD | Black to basics

Thursday, 23 July 2015

Warmer, brighter days have finally arrived, which means two things 1) time to get those legs out and 2) more outfit freedom of clothing. Of course I stuck to my usual traits and somehow still managed to wear black and white despite the fact that it's summer and that I should be wearing more colours to reflect the weather but hey ho. 
Skorts are something I normally wouldn't go for but last year when I was frantically looking for something to use my Topshop gift card on before it expired, this stood out to me as it wasn't ridiculously asymmetrical and was black so it didn't look as wacky as other skorts. After buying it I just sorta hid it at the back of my cupboard, hoping not to encounter it again but now one year later I'm loving it and its tailored self! Paired with a floaty white lace cami I picked up Zara sale this creates an effortlessly chic outfit that is suitable for both day and evening wear. I'm wearing a pair of black suede loafers with a gold chain from Zara which have that 'clicky' noise that you usually get with heels so whenever I walk in these I always feel 10x sassier than I actually am. I did check the forecast the night before so when I saw that it'd be both sunny and cloudy (well done Britain) I decided to bring a coat with me which in this case is my navy jersey and bomber jacket from Zara.

    1. Thank you Hanna :D It's always monochrome fashion for me, I was just packing my suitcase and realised all my clothes are either black, white, grey or navy blue!

  8. Loveee the pictures ;) The post is totally great and I also agree on the 'no colour scheme' I find black and white more sophicated but also effortless and casual. Loved the whole post x

    1. Haha thank you for taking the photos, I find wearing colour is much trickier to style so I tend to stick with monochrome pieces for more freedom of styling.

  10. I love the outfit, I feel like I am also one to be on the more monochrome side when it comes to outfits but I have recently been trying to wear a little more colour. Your writing is so good, I'm envious!

    1. Thanks Emily, I find it so hard to implement colour in my wardrobe as I don't want to draw too much attention to me! Let me know how it goes for you though.
