Monochrome Monday

Monday calls for a more classic approach, ease in to the working week (which is thankfully a shorter one thanks to having booked a day off Friday to go shopping in Bath)

The lighting is terrible, or my camera skills are terrible. I like to think of it as a joint effort between the two.




First time wearing these black flats. They cost Β£2.70 in Primark so I don’t have high hopes!

Happy Monday xxx

    I’ve been rather drawn to a monchrome palette recently too. I love the pared down elegance of simple black and white.

  22. I love your top πŸ™‚

  23. Love the outfit! Looking gorgeous as usual… How did you get on with the flats? I need some new black ones so let me know πŸ™‚ xoxo

  24. Loving this t-shirt, and the monchrome chic is gorgeous on you. Gorgeous trousers. Wish my legs were long enough….

    Good luck with the shoes, my experience of primark shoes is that worn with insoles and not day in day out, they can last. Generally quite comfortable.

  25. i think this is one of my FAVORITE outfits I have seen you in!! oxox

  26. I love that bow tie on your top – such a cool idea! I have found primark flats surprisingly durable once I’ve worn them in actually, so good luck with them!

  27. the the tuxedo like black and white. and i cant believe you have never worn black flats.. girl everyone need a pair of black flats

  28. I love this monochrome look! Very androgynous.

  29. So Frenchy! Yay to shorter weeks, especially if because of some retail rioting!

  30. Loving your monochrome look!

    It’s so simple, yet so.. sexy πŸ™‚


    Hope your feet got on alright with their new flats.. I’m a serious sucker for bargainous shoes.

  31. Love the cute bow tie. And oooh, also a huge fan of the Β£2.70 flats. Wish Primark shoes fit my ridiculous feet! Voted for you! πŸ˜€ xx

  32. This looks very chic. Love the shape and length of the trousers – they look perfect. xx

  33. Oooh, Flash looks really weird in the first picture- some sort of weird sort of x-ray effect!
    I like the outfit- suits you very much!!

  34. How did you cope in the flats? I’ve given up on Primark ballet pumps but I find some of their other flat styles are surprisingly comfy and long-lasting.

    Love this look. Effortlessly stylish. And yay for shopping in Bath! Ps: Palazzo pant post coming soon! X

  36. Oooh gorgeous outfit, the top is lovely!
    I keep buying those cheapy flats from Primark even though they absolutely murder my feet. I really need to learn to just invest in a decent pair which won’t give me blisters all the time!

  37. Very Audrey Hepburn -chic and stylish
