Monochrome Navy

August 24 2012
One of my favourite looks to sport: Monochrome! Love my jeans on cooler summer days, so I wore it with this deep blue blouse that I bought from French Connection not too long ago! It’s very sheer though, so I’ve got a bustier underneath! I paired it with my brown/black heels and was good to go! 🙂

Blouse : French Connection
Jeans : Topshop
Shoes : Zara
Bag : Zara
Bangles : Primark
Ring : H&M

    Love this look Shirley, you make looking chic seem so damn effortless. Absolutely love your blog. When my blog is more established would love to feature you as i’m interning at NOW magazine and I feel that, you would be great to feature in a style/confidence sort of article.

    Love all your outfits, so lovely… But those jeans I’ve tried them, and well basically I have thunder thighs and they didn’t last more than a couple of months, so I looked around and hey presto I found a pair in primark, exact same but cheaper and they have lasted a lot longer… only £11. keep the outfits coming.
