Monochrome Prints & Stripes

So I can't really say I put a lot of thought into this outfit...but you know, being a blogging novice I need the practice!

I'm lucky that work let me wear pretty much what I want, so that means sometimes I'm in a dress, accessories, full make up elaborate hair etc..and some days when rolling out of bed is a task, I can just throw something on. This was one of those days!

I wanted to wear my comfy Asda palazzo trousers for what will probably be the last time of the year, its already getting chilly (where were you British summer?!). The print is parrots.

I didn't bother with makeup today, since I was running late and just wore my usual pivot helmet (roller derby) necklace and specks. As you can see my strawberry obsession continues onto my skin - its my fave tattoo.


My stripey cardigan I got from Melton carboot and market on Monday for the princely sum of 50p! It was in need of a good wash, but I took the risk and it came out great! Long sleeves and a hood, with big buttons on the front.

My pumps are some old vans I got from Office a few years ago. They have a tendancy to pinch so I don't wear them a lot but they went with my monochrome theme today.

We went to Asda after I got home from work, as I needed to pick up my new leggings that I bought online and we needed some other bits. I couldn't resist a good rummage through the sale rail and found this red and black spotted beauty. They only had a couple left in 8's & 10's so when I found it in a size 14 I had to nip to the changing room in hope. Luckily its a pretty stretchy fabric and fits lovely. £8 bargain! I was only allowed to buy it if hubby could have a bottle of wine....fair deal there then!

Hopefully I'll do a proper outfit post with this and my new leggings in the next week or so.
