OOTD - Stripes, Monochrome & Boucle

Morning ladies so my first day back in the office after the last 10 days off, which will no doubt mean the morning will be spent reading & filing the numerous emails that have come in over the Easter break.  But hopefully it won't be too manic a day?!

I'm keeping things simple today & going for an all out monochrome look broken up with some stripes, the detailing on my shoes & a good old pop of red!

  1. You look amazing in this outfit. My black and white striped top arrived this morning and it is too tight - on my short, top heavy torso it created a sort of zebra crossed with a Bactrian camel look! Not good! The black and white post for petites I was planning will have to wait. Your shoes and red bag just add that extra something and make it perfect!

    1. Thanks Astrid.
      It's so annoying isn't it when you think you've found your perfect top & wait patiently for it to be delivered only to be disappointed. Would it be worth sizing up? I know sometimes I do this as I prefer the fit of certain items a little looser on me. Good luck with the search for the perfect breton.

    2. Thanks Jane, I will try sizing up - it's M&S so easy to exchange. On the plus side, the petite denim jacket that arrived with it was a great fit, so I am happy! I love your style, blazers, cropped jackets and jeans are my favourite combination, I just wish I had your legs!

    3. Yay to the jacket fitting Astrid & fingers crossed sizing up in the top works. If it's a basic Breton you're after then also take a look at H&M, Boden & Joules.

    4. Hope you find your perfect time soon Astrid.
