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
Trainers – Next Grey Matallic Concealed Wedge Trainers £55.00

Jacket – Miss Selfridge Seam Detail Biker Jacket £52.00
Beads – Topshop
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.
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!
