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!
One of my favourite colours has to be navy. A classic, sophisticated and smart shade that is more forgiving than black and I think suits pretty much everyone. A key colour for a nautical vibe and a trend that never goes out of season, here are some of my nautical ideas for whatever the weather:
Navy/white shorts & stripe tee
Stripe skirt & plain tee
Stripe espadrilles/white pumps
Navy blazer, stripe tee and chino's
Tailored navy trousers, stripe blouse and pumps
Stripe scarf or bag
As day two's adventures included the old town and Barcelona's marina (Port Vell) a soft, thin stripe tee, navy high waisted shorts and flats seemed appropriate! Plus the weather was amazing and I wanted to make the most of being able to wear shorts!
"Sometimes I feel like I'm in
A place that has always been on my bucket list. My friend Leigh
and I spent 3 days in this stunning, medieval Spanish city. From the shopping... to lunch... to the architecture....I was simply amazed!!
In true tourist style I had my camera, guide book, sunnies and with lots
of walking in order...........my new black/silver toe-cap skate pumps! (My favs
at the mo!)
Sports luxe has been a key trend for SS14 and since it
was still going to be hot weather I made sure to pack pieces that I could adapt
easily from day to night. A super cute, leather-look miniskirt with zip
front and pocket detailing combined with my skater flats instantly worked this
sporty appeal. Complete with a pair of clubmaster Ray Bans and a city
print Parfois bag........ I was ready for day uno in
For a night edit....add a pair of heels, fitted blouse and dainty jewellery.
Day one - Camp Nou (Barcelona FC), Park Güell - one of Gaudi's creations
and Plaça de Catalunya.
