Monochrome And Braids


Every time I go shopping I go with the mission of adding a bit of colour to my wardrobe, but always seem to be drawn to the classic black and white.  My last shopping trip was no different when I picked up this monochrome printed top from H&M.  Sometimes I just don't think you can beat the classic black and white though.

Top - H&M
Shoes - New Look

This is one of the most comfortable tops I now own!  It's so lightweight and comfy.  Perfect for this Spring weather where it's not quite warm enough for bare arms but too warm for a cardigan or jumper.  The clashing patterns are great for adding interest to a simple outfit too.

I have been feeling quite bored with my hair recently, this is the longest I've gone without having it coloured or all cut off.  I was contemplating going for the "lob" recently but was banned by my best friend who is getting married next week, as I am bridesmaid and she wants me to keep it long for the wedding.  So I have been trying a lot more updos out on it recently and this side braid has become one of my favourites for keeping it out of my face.  I have not quite perfected it yet but I hope with a bit more practice I'll get better and quicker at it.

Speaking of my friend getting married, I will be off to Santorini for her wedding on Saturday and I cannot wait!!  I'm hoping to get lots of posts up when I get back with lots of lovely new outfits I've bought for it, including my bridesmaid dress!  It's beautiful and I cannot wait to wear it.
