Monochrome | My Ensemble (OOTD)

Monochrome, monochrome, monochrome...It's been everywhere this season and is beginning to sound monotone, monotone, monotone, right? Black and white is the undisputedly the most classic colour combination. I don't think I could ever get bored of it, but I'm glad the trend dying down a little, because it was getting a little monotonous, and I personally don't like to look like a clone.
However, there are so many different ways to rock this trend; a vast array of different monochromatic patterns and shapes: thick stripes, thin stripes, dots, swirls, blocks...The list is endless. You can clash the patterns or  go simple.
SHIRT: ASOS | BAG: New Look | SHOES: Colin Stuart | HAT: eBay | EARRINGS: New Look | TROUSERS: New Look
What I love about this shirt is that it's not the typical black and 'brilliant white' monochrome, but a black and slightly off-white mix.
Wearing monochrome accesories such as a bag, shoes and/or earrings are a good way of incorporating the look into an outfit, especially if you want to keep the clothes simple or plain.

I added this quinessentially British bowler hat because, well, why not?
These shoes were given to me from Edee of Edee Beau Studios (you may remember, I did a post on her a while back >> here << ) on behalf of her sister (Betse) while she was clearing out her (amazing) wardrobe before moving home. How glad was I when I discovered they were a great fit?! Anyway I friggin' love these wedges! The gold maze pattern is such a lovely detail.

How do you wear monochrome?

As ever,

  2. Stumbled upon your blog today and have spent aaaages going through it and I LOVE IT. I love the photography, your collage of pics, the blending of food with your personal style (Coz food and fashion are life, well maybe not fashion unless one eats Vogue). I can totally relate to your Big Chop article as my last blog post was on the very topic as I had to undergo the chop after looots of hair damage. And I am on the search for the perfect red gloss (not lipstick),and found your post on that topic helpful. Brava! Looking forward to reading more of your posts! B

    1. Aaaww! Thank you!...Yep, the 'big chop' is challenging (no one said it would be easy), but hair grows. You'll have ugly days, but you quickly learn to embrace your natural hair, but not let your hair define you....I hope you enjoy my future posts. Thanks for leaving a comment. :)
