monochrome

20/03/2013


what i'm wearing:
sheinside striped top*
topshop joni jeans
topshop chain necklace
primark flats
vintage bag
MK watch

if you keep up with me on twitter you'll know what's been going on with me recently which is maybe why i haven't been as frequent (by that i mean every day) with my posting. some of you may prefer not to see a post from me everyday, some of you may be missing it who knows all i know is that it's probably how it's going to be from now on. this is because up until recently i was only working an eight hour contract with the odd overtime thrown in as it was the only job going after i dropped out of university and i didn't want to be sitting on my bum all day. however, recently a new job within the company has become available and i've finally been given a contract on thirty hours which i am so happy to have as it means my pay will be trebling from what it was previously. although this is amazing financially it does mean that i'm not going to have as much free time as i did before to blog, this does not mean i'm going to stop though! it probably just means when i post my outfits may be a little better as i'll actually have more money to spend (and hopefully i'll be able to afford a much better camera).

i absolutely love the monochrome trend as all things black and white are at the top in my books. i already own quite a few pieces to wear for the trend but when sheinside gifted me this top i think it's basically my perfect item, as it's literally going to go with anything. i decided to keep it simple the first time i wore it as i had a shift at work to go to after i took these photos, but i think it would look amazing on a night out with my faux leather skater skirt and some heels, or even my pinafore jumpsuit. i love that even though it's chiffon material it's not sheer so it means no exposure of the bra, hurrah.
