I should really stop promising you guys colour… maybe come Spring I’ll ditch the monochrome and try something new but for now I’m seeking comfort in my favourite getup. A morning in town filled with meetings and beauty launches called for something comfortable but stylish. 

I still love my faux leather fronted leigh jeans from Topshop and they’re the perfect stylish cheat. They look tight and uncomfortable but because of the real jean back they feel just like any other pair and look great! Rushing out the house I decided last minute to throw on my Aldo boots as they tick all the boxes, clumpy, stylish and comfy – tick. Because everything down below was so tight I wanted my upper body to be draped with loose fitted clothes, so I chose my white Zara top and this oversized River Island cardigan/jacket. The weather was nice so I could get away with wearing just a blanket-like jacket.

To go with the slouchy jacket I grabbed my very well loved Topshop bag, packed it full of useless bits and threw my sunnies on to avoid squinty Lily. My favourite thing about this outfit? The nails. L’Oreal Ever Riche in ‘Lemon Meringue’…. it’s white nails for people who are a bit scared of white polish.

    My wardrobe is full of black, I just find it so easy to wear. Makes finding things in a rush difficult though! I’m going to try ans embrace a bit of colour this spring summer.

    Who needs color when black and white looks this chic? (This is what I tell myself to avoid feeling silly for turning my nose up at color).

  • Flowers and Spikes

    Love everything about this outfit! I feel myself having a hard time ditching the blacks and whites too! But the way I sneak in color is by always wearing different colors of lipstick!

    P.S. Uhb-SESSED with those lace up boots. You might have enabled me to go buy a pair :)

    I love the look Lily! I too am obsessed with monochrome, I rarely find anything I love in colour. I like having a mostly black and white wardrobe though, because everything goes together so easily .

    Love this look! I’m a pretty monochromatic fashion person myself. Though, I tend to wear more gray than black.

    There is nothing wrong with a little monochrome loving’, that’s for sure. I’ve always been one to gravitate towards monochrome styling, though I have actually been wearing some colour of late (strange?).

    Absolutely loving your blog!

    I love the boots! I’ve had several pairs similar to those over the years – so versatile! Sadly I can’t do the heel height any more. I’m a fan of black & white – so easy and a classic combination. And it’s easy to change it up by adding a bit of color with an accessory or two.

  • Raizel Greco

    Love the outfit! Black and white are my favourite colours to wear.
