suit up!

I had a busy morning ahead of me when I got up this morning (briefs due and the likes) so I felt that comfort was the solution. Practicality is key when you are running around like a headless chicken. So I decided to stick on some tailored black trousers (though I seriously need to take them in-yay!) and dress them down with beat up converse, a quiff and a plain white tee. Once ready I realised I had dressed like Ellen DeGeneres so I couldn't help but dance while printing off my work in class (much to the amusement of my friends).

I have also come to the realisation that I am constantly wearing black and white (tomorrow is no exception) and I beginning to worry that I must be looking terribly dark and moody. I swear I am happy as a clam, I just love monochrome. But I do feel I should breathe a bit of life and colour back into my day to day wardrobe. Colour-blocking is still a key trend and I did try on gorgeous bright pink trousers and then equally gorgeous orange suede wedge ankle boots in Penneys ( I am seriously tempted by the boots, maybe if I spot them back home). 

Does anyone else get into a colour palette rut like me? I have a sneaking suspicion it's a seasonal thing.

  1. I love mixing a suit jacket with converse.
    I was in a colour rut for a while but I think it's because I was get very lazy about matching my clothes and making sure that new things I bought went with things I already owned. But black and white is a stylish rut! Just say it's your "thing".

  2. Coverse and blazer ahh world's greatest combo !
    I'm loving the simplicity in your outfit <3
    Btw. you asked me ( like aaaages ago) how I made my pictures to look 3D... its' really easy all you have to do is download 'photoscape' go to editor on choose 'celophan' effect ;)
