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!

Ciao Albufeira......!!

A time to accentuate our tans and make the most of the end of summer.......WHITE-OUT!

Whilst my sister chose minimal, and simplicity with a cute, chic, loose fit dress, I went monochromatic.  Blocked patterns or embroidery in black and white create a timeless, classic look and will work well alongside existing pieces in your wardrobe.  In contrast to the rich detailing skirt, I chose a basic white shirt, white flats and a white flower headband. 

Crisp all-white was highlighted across the runways this SS14 whether it was a tailored or casual athletic look.  Not sure on all white?!  Then mix it up through different use of textiles; including leathers, silk, crochet or denim.
