As Monochrome As I Go

[Vest Top: Next | Tunic Top: Zara | Shorts: Zara | Shoes: Next | Watch: Olivia Burton]
 
 Well hello there, after last weeks *slight* change of scenery for the weekly outfit post, I'm back to my happy place, or one corner of my conservatory to be exact. I've dressed in a rather alien set of colours for me, not often do I don the monochrome, but it seemed Saturdays outfit had it in bucket loads. My outfit was all centred around the shoes, just look at the shoes. I'd had my eye on them for a couple of weeks and then something amazing happened, something I couldn't quite believe.. they were in the sale for half price IN MY SIZE. Yeah, it took about 6 seconds for them to be added to my basket and purchased haha. So, I had the shoes but then it was as matter of having an outfit that went with them. I originally thought black tights in summer would look stupid, but it is Britain we are talking about. We are having some kind of strangle heat wave at the moment, but over the weekend, despite it being so incredibly humid, the clouds were out, thick. Turns out black tights in winter is absolutely fine *thumbs up*
I decided to were my patterned shorts from Zara with a black vest top and tunic-type top, both shorts and top were a creamy/ivory so looked fine together.
Overall, in my head I didn't think this outfit would work, but turns out it doesn't look too bad. I think the shoes really bring the outfit together. Ideally it would have been nice to wear it all with nude tights, but its just not really appropriate when there are rain clouds in the sky and your in with a chance of constant goose bumps all day, yes even despite the humidity (that breeze can take you by surprise haha)
 
Hope you all too had a lovely weekend! :)
