Spring Monochrome Magic...


Style Theory: It is strange, as the sun comes out I seem to wear a little more black and white. I think it is because with a little colour on my face and limbs I don't find black so harsh and draining, also in the winter I use bright clothes to cheer me up add vibrancy to my pale palour, in the summer, the sun, flowers and general outdoor life is enough for me so the colour of clothes doesn't need to be so uplifting....

This monochrome outfit is going to be my 'go to' outfit for the Spring and summer and well into the autumn. I fell for Dodo Bar Or dresses and tops last year and this year this Dodo Bar Or top from Beach Cafe is going to be pretty much on me all summer. It is a hefty investment blouse but one that I will wear non stop, with jeans, dungarees or black trousers now and in the summer with cut off denim shorts and flat sandals, it is pure luxury with it's gorgeous billowing sleeves and fringing details..

I paired it with my new Donna Ida dungarees - I tried them on at the event I hosted at Donna Ida recently and had to buy them, they are a super flattering, waxed fabric that has just the right amount of stretch in it. I am going to cut them at the bottom so they are ankle length and I know they will be my 'going out, out' dungers this year..

Shoes - H&M (old season)
Bag - Topshop (old season)

If you do fancy investing in a few holiday pieces check out Beach Cafe, I was literally in heaven scrolling through the collection, it really is not cheap but I am going to buy a swimsuit as it is the thing I wear most on holiday (every day) so I think if I buy a beautiful one I will try not to buy much more for daytime - I have denim shorts and white tops and a beach dress is all I really need...

Here are my favourite holiday items from Beach Cafe so many gorgeous things!!..

So I know I may be getting a little ahead of myself talking about summer but I always leave everything until the last minute and the things I had my eye on are usually sold out. The outfit above is totally my comfort zone, comfortable, practical, hides the lumps and bumps and can worn day or evening...perfect!!

Are you a fan of monochrome in the summer or do you wear it all year or colour all year?? Am I the only strange one who reaches for black as soon as the sun shines? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxx
