Style - Monochrome City Chic

I was in London last weekend for British Summertime Festival (which was great by the way - who knew Kendrick Lamar had such an array of catchy tunes!) and the following day, my boyfriend and I decided to make the most of being in the capital and decided a shopping spree and lunch date was in order. We were staying at the London Edition hotel which is right next to Oxford Circus so as you can imagine, there was a whole host of fabulous shops on our doorstep!

While we were roaming the streets around Oxford Road, we came across these super pretty and very blogger-esque marble steps so obviously I had to stop and get some snaps of my outfit. Much to my boyfriends dismay - who else’s boyfriend hates being a photographer on days out?! Haha! I thought I’d share what I wore for the day with you guys as I really loved the outfit and it was so comfortable to wear for a day shopping too.

When it comes to day to day fashion, I’m not one for wearing a lot of bright colours. Don’t get me wrong, I love the odd statement pieces here and there with a bold print or a vivid colour but more often than not, the colours I’m drawn to are black, white, grey or neutrals. I love neutral colour palettes for a number of reasons but particularly because they look classy, chic and can be accessorised with virtually any other colour! 

I decided to go for a monochrome look for my day shopping as I recently got this bardot striped blouse from Miss Pap and it's quickly become one of my favourite tops to wear on a day to day basis as it looks great with jeans or tucked into a skirt. I decided to pair it with my new white denim skirt as the weather was fairly nice and I hate walking around in tight jeans when it's warm - yuck! One of my favourite items of clothing to wear are high waisted skirts so as soon as I saw this one on Missguided's website, I just had to have it. I love that it will go with so many different tops - it will definitely be one of my most worn Summer items.

To finish the look, I wore my trusty Carvela lace up heels which I got last Summer and have worn almost non-stop since I bought them. They're seriously comfortable! I also wore my trusty Rayban aviator sunglasses and my new little ASOS choker necklace ! Finally, I took my trusty Zara city office bag out for the day which is my favourite bag to take when I travel anywhere as it fits loads in and has a compartment for my laptop too!!

Are you a fan of the monochrome look?!
