Forever will I wish I were one of those Scandinavian girls who wear black and white and look super chic and effortless but that will never be me. Instead, the few times I do opt for black and white is always with a little injection of colour, some red lippy and bright accessories. This sunny weekend has meant I've actually braved no-tights (such a novelty!) so I paired this houndstooth skirt with this long sleeve tee from Black White Denim Basics for this monochrome look. The top is from a new collection of luxe cotton essentials from the brand which are designed and made in England. It's the perfect foundation piece and the slightly longer fit is really flattering. It is definitely an item that will stay in my wardrobe for a long time and I'm sure most of you have basics in your wardrobe that you've had for years too (FYI - I still have a couple of basics that I've had since I was a teenager!) On a side note, I hope everyone has been enjoying the lovely sunny weather we've been having. However fleeting this sunshine is, I'm pretty pleased it's here. I'm so ready for British Summer time!

  1. I do love a black and white outfit. This one looks great on you, especially with the sun glasses. The colourful clutch gives a fun edge and the W ring is just so cute! Hx

  3. I think black and white lends itself to being worn with red lipstick anyway. Your skirt is fabulous

  24. You pull B&W off just perfectly! The skirt pattern really makes everything come together, and the pop of color was the best finishing touch. When I wear neutrals I also can't help but add some color.

  26. Perfect skirt! I love the hounds-tooth pattern. In fact, I recently brought a dress with the same pattern, when I was in Kuala Lumpur last week, and I can't wait to wear it when the right occasion comes along. I really like your style! All the best from Oslo!

  29. bahahha I laughed out loud at the first sentence of this post. I'm totally like you- wear my sneakers, long coat and waxed denim and wish I had blonde hair to look scandi. Ah well. I do love that houndstooth print and the way you mixed it with the pink!
