Black, White & Grey Inspired

I take my inspiration for outfits from everywhere really, anything can honestly inspire me and this one was sort of inspired by Kate Moss. I am not a huge fan of hers if I am honest, but I do like it when she puts together a monochrome, smart yet casual outfit. Kate seems to really be afraid of colour and hardly wears it, but it wouldn’t be one of my outfits without a pop of colour somewhere! Ha ha. I put this together quickly as an outfit for one of my reviews and I really quite liked the way it turned out actually.

I’m wearing DC grey skinny jeans, my Topshop black boyfriend blazer, black Salma heels and faceted bracelet, a H&M white tee and my Merle O’Grady necklace.

So what do you think of the look? It’s actually been raining here constantly all week and it’s so dark now that the clocks went back on Saturday! I dislike it when Winter draws close because there is barely any daylight and warmth. Speaking of warmth though, I actually just bought a leopard Onesie from Topshop! It’s the warmest thing ever and it even has a hood with ears on it! So cute!

    Lorna! I was watching the Today Show (a big morning news show in the US) and apparently they held a DIY contest. Many bloggers submitted entries. They featured a winner and several runners up on the show this morning. One of the runners up was a pair of Louboutins that someone had strassed themselves…I was sure they were yours, but it turns out they were done by someone else. But it sounds like you should submit yours into a contest, etc. if you have the chance!

      Hey Jen! Do you have a link? We don’t have the Today Show over here so I haven’t seen it before. How do I do it?

    Have to say I do love this look, the boyfriend blazer just makes skinny jeans, normally you would think grey and black would be dull, but the shades you have there really compliment eachother x

    It’s true Kate can put together some really perfect monochromatic outfits, your inspiration here was obvious. Love the color on the jeans as well.

      Thanks Ali! I agree with that, they do really tie an outfit together! Glad you like it Sarah!
