Monochrome Colour Pop

March 26, 2014


Hey guys,

Happy Wednesday! We’re more than half way through the week, so the weekend is nearly in sight. I’m really excited about this weekend because the clocks are going forward and that can only mean one thing… SUMMER! Even though we’re gonna lose an hour of sleep, I can’t wait for the long evenings. I love when it stays bright well after 10pm. 🙂

It’s almost two weeks since my last outfit post… time just flys by but I am gonna get better and post more of my outfits. I have so many to show you. This past week was particularly crazy for me. My little sister Jenny (who takes most of my pics) made her confirmation on Saturday, so it was a jam packed weekend. I have got really into baking over the last while, so I made four different desserts for the day. I made Ferrero Rocher cheesecake, lemon and lime cheesecake, apple crumble and a checkerboard cake. They were beyond delicious, even if I do say so myself. I’ve included a pic at the end of this post for you guys to drool over. I’ve also included a pic of my little sis with her godmother and one of our other sisters, Emma. Emma, who I spent Christmas with in Australia, has just moved back home after 2 and half years travelling.

So… onto my outfit. This is what I wore to the confirmation. I never know what to wear to these kind of occasions and usually end up wearing something simple. I really think you can never go wrong with monochrome! I couldn’t believe my luck when I got this sixties style coat on sale in Penneys last year. I love it and think it’s a real classic timeless piece.  As I’m sure you know by now, I always like to have a pop of colour in my looks, so of course I wore my new MK bag. I am obsessed with it and think the colour looked fab with this outfit. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you have probably seen these shoes before… aren’t they amazing? Penneys are really outdoing themselves lately. I think they look great with these black high-waisted jeans and dress up the outfit nicely.

 I hope you like my look,
