2 Parts Monochrome, 1 Part Denim




 Striped Crop Top - H&M
Skater Skirt - H&M
Cropped Denim Shirt - Urban Outfitters (old)
Chunky Sandals - New Look


 I remember the time when I wouldn't even dream of pairing up socks and sandals, but these chunky beauties were just made to be worn with socks.  For me anyway.

If your wearing a monochrome outfit, and you want too add that little extra something, just go for a dash of denim.  It's a fail proof plan too make it just that little more interesting.  Initially, I was going to leave the denim shirt unbuttoned and untied, but tying it up made the outfit look less slouchy.  Slouchy is okay at times, but it wasn't the look I was going for here.

Top tip: pets always make for more cute and interesting photos!

  33. I absolutely love your style :) the bardot top / sleeveless shirt combo is so cute, I would never have thought to pair the two. And I completely agree with you on the pets improving photographs pointer, I wish my furry friend was more cooperative.
