Lace On Leather

I feel another bout on monochrome-itis coming on!  Don’t get me wrong, I love colour, but there’s something so easy, perhaps even lazy about black and white.  It’s effortless, chic and is easy to shop for.  I am somewhat of a reverse magpie when it comes to shopping, I’m instantly drawn to monochrome pieces, but hey, it worked for Chanel.  I’ve added some texture in today’s otherwise rather simple look.  These textured faux leather shorts from ASOS are slightly nappy-esque in fit but I do love a good old paper-bag waist line and they do the trick here.  Taking a tip from Britney Spears circa 2008 and her hit (hmmm?) ‘Lace and Leather’ (no, it’s not just you, no one remembers it), I paired said shorts with this beautiful longline lace jacket sent to me from Quiz.  Voila!  Another two-tonal outfit is born.

Right, it’s ‘Jazzy Jeans Day’!  I first saw these amazing Ashish-inspired jeans at the River Island SS14 press day and I instantly wanted them.  They had them paired with a sequin stripe polo tee (again Ashish-Inspired) and I fell in love with the whole look.  These jeans are a ‘Mom’ fit which I’m not the biggest fan of if I’m being totally honest but they are pretty easy to wear by pulling a top over the super high-waist.
