Back to Black (and White)

 black boyfriend crop: Primark
white crochet layer shorts: TK Maxx
Alibi ankle boots - Topshop

hello!

Today isn't the 'day two in Madrid' post but it will be up tomorrow! I thought I'd just post a quick outfit from a few months ago whilst I had a spare few minutes. I'm moving out of my uni house today so all is rather hectic. Everything is finally all packed though, hurrah! Jordan and I are going for a quick last stroll by the river before I leave. It's strange to think that I've been in Kingston for three years for university and it's now come to an end. I'm really going to miss it here but will be visiting frequently!

This outfit was actually part of the 'Summer Trends 2013' lookbook on my YouTube channel; take a peek at the embedded video below if you fancy a look! Whilst summer is all about celebrating florals, bright colours and patterned pieces - the monochrome trend was also deemed as one of S/S 13's biggest trends. Being an avid fan of the hues, I exclaimed a loud 'HURRAH' when I found out and didn't hasten to fling open my wardrobe to display my black and white clothing items.

Like much of my outfits, I tried to make this one appropriate from day to night. One, it's purse friendly. Two, it's versatile and three, I'm too lazy to change and get ready all over again for the evening. Crop tops have been everywhere on the high street and I've grown to become a big fan of the midriff flashing pieces. For those who are self-conscious of their abs, pairing it with high-waisted bottoms helps to solve that problem but still show a cheeky bit of your body for summer without ahem, looking like a strumpet.

As the black boyfriend crop top is plain, oversized and quite frankly... a bit dull, the crochet layered shorts helps to feminise it, add some texture and make it all the more interesting. They're my favourite summer shorts and I even bought a black pair too. Quelle surprise.

I must dash now, the swans on the thames are now calling me!

Have a great rest of the day,

I'll post as soon as I've moved in (and unpacked boooooo)
