Outfit of the day: Monochrome.

I dragged my gorgeous workmate, Fran, outside of our office whilst at work this week and asked her to take a few pictures of my outfit (thanks gurllll)!  I had a couple of meetings and so tried to dress a little more ‘smart’ than I usually do.


Leather jacket Choies, White Top – H&M, Black Vest – Primark, Leggings – American Apparel, Boots – New Look, Three Zipper BagNelly.

Most of my wardrobe is pretty much black, grey and white and so this outfit was easy to throw on and also super comfy (I’m definitely a comfort over style kinda girl).  I’m obsessed with this leather jacket from Choies at the moment – (available here).  It’s perfect for dressing both up and down and also looks quite expensive when it was in fact only £27.

I threw it on top of a white long top and black vest (I love vests and layering) and with my American Apparel Shiny Black Leggings on bottom.  I purchased these as I wanted a pair of disco type pants without the tightness around the waist (surely not the only girl who feels like this) which I can throw on under any long top.  I adore them and practically live in them.  My boots are from New Look (available here) and they’re ridiculously comfortable and are easy to walk in even with a bit of height.

Also want to mention my bag – I saw it on one of my favourite swedish fashion blogs and purchased it straight away.  It’s compact and has three zip compartments which means I can find things easily.  I can just about fit my Acer Tablet in it too which means I can carry my books around with me. It was only around £27 too which I thought was pretty good – available here.

I’ve managed to make Fran agree to taking an outfit picture of me each week so I have many more of these type of posts coming up which I’m really excited about!

Do you prefer comfort or style?

    I want a bit of both. It's easy to be comfortable but to meld in both is difficult.I manage to do it though. I know someone else who dresses in basic colours like yourself and I think the best way of changing it up is to include way more colours. So you don't have to change the style of clothes, just brighten it up with colour and it will feel like a new look without compromising on comfort

    Nice outfit! I strive to combine both comfort and style, because I've bought uncomfortable clothes before and they ended up sitting in the closet unused.

    Love the whole outfit! Beautiful! I prefer comfort but sometimes it's so hard looking nice and not being comfortable like wearing high heels for a long amount of time on a day out! My feets and ankle starts aching but just can't help it!

    I think the whole outfit wouldve come together with a pair of black peeptoe heels instead of boots, it looks a little informal and childish with the boots. But overall gorgeous jacket 🙂

    I love this outfit, very beautiful! ♥

    Love that outfit! I'm definitely a comfort girl. I just got a leather jacket from ZARA so I'm obsessed with that at the moment. Yay monochrome!
