Black & White
Monochrome...... simple, complimentary and effortless colours.

Not quite Spring yet.... it can be hard to brighten up a Winter wardrobe. White?  Not quite a bright colour, but today's highlight to my all black look. 

One of my favourite shops at the moment is Stradivarius, they offer great basics and printed pieces.  This tailored white blazer/jacket, pair of geometric print trousers and basic black roll-neck top all from Stradivarius created today's look.

Added Accessories?  Shoes, bags and jewellery are always important to me and unfortunately where I have expensive taste!  I always think with clothes you can mix and match but accessories you have to spend a little more.  

A leather pair of monk strap Massimo Dutti shoes with studded detail, a leather crocodile skin Modalu crossbag and a dainty gold layered Zara necklace were my treats for today's outfit!

Treat yourself!! x

Winter Warmers
One of my new years resolutions ......to continue to visit new places!

With some time off over the festive period (and having eaten a little too much!)...... I visited The Friars in Aylesford.  A frosty morning, bluebird sky, I took in the fresh air and the beautiful grounds.  An ancient religious house of the Order of the Carmelites dating back to the 13th century, it was peaceful, relaxing and tranquil.

As the frost lay over the grounds, I was sure to wrap up warm! Nothing better than a roll neck jumper (to keep your neck warm) and some simply skinny jeans.  Plus my new navy knit cape which was a present for Christmas.  Double knitwear!!

After the frost....hopefully comes the snow?!!  I hope!  Stay warm everyone!

The Cape
Chilly, crisp, frosty mornings ........ just want to feel warm and snug?

Wrap yourself up in A/W's must have cover-up.  This one chic piece can transform the most simple of outfits. The cape....a soft knit jumper, skinny pants and leather boots creates a great casual look.  

Accessorize up?  Add a scarf, hat or headband for extra cosyness!  My collection of hats is very minimal (not many styles suit me), but I decided to branch out.

Two-Piece
Skirts & Sweaters Season!

For a simple transitional combo this Autumn team a soft sweatshirt with a textured skirt.  The balance of a warm top but bare legs and skate pumps is perfect for that downtime vibe.

I love to vary my look; from city chic...to beach babe....to country girl.  But today's look.....Sports Style.  The sun was still shining but the temperature slightly chilly........perfect for a skirt/sweatshirt combo!  

Love matching pieces?  For me it depends on the pieces or the print!  I love matching tailored separates.... especially cute short suits. But I was instantly drawn to this landscape print casual two piece!
