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!
