Statement Monochrome Meets Neon

I am absolutely loving monochrome this season, I rocked it at fashion week and I've continued on ever since.  I do have a habit of sticking to 'safe' options but I decided the other day enough was enough. 

Yesterday I teamed my favourite checked leggings from Topshop with a vibrant neon pink top from Next. I've then simply added some extras to give it a hint of a rock inspiration, without being too dated or pointing at a common vintage rock style.  As I say I have styled a monochrome look before at LFW, take a quick peek; London Fashion Week Day 1

  What I'm wearing
 Leggings - Topshop Blck Check Denim Leggings £25.00
Beads - Topshop 
Beehive Ponytailneon and leather
 Adding the exciting silver metallic wedge trainers, gives some extra height without obviously causing pain that heels would.  It also makes the look quite casual, but remaining quite edgy.

Yellow beads
I love mixing the look up and adding my old skool necklace from Topshop - I got that zesty yellow item around 2003 and have kept it ever since.  Sometimes it is a wise idea to hold on to some items you buy, especially jewellery as it really can come back around and finish off a look.  I have been cursing the fact I can't embrace my spring/summer wardrobe, so a happy balance of cheeky bright colours with monochrome really do work well. 

I spent the day with my lovely food blogging buddy Alex from Gingey Bites.  We mainly played with her cat, only after a delicious french inspired lunch at a local deli!  It was a wonderful Good Friday and today I'm venturing to the shops for a spot of pay day shopping! Fingers crossed we stop having snow in the UK, if we don't I may have to do a snow wear or pyjama post!
