Outfit of the day: Shoreditch!

Black Petite Peg Trousers – Asos
T-Shirt – Primark
Black Wedges – Primark

I wore this look to work last week and quite liked it so I dragged Andrew (who met me after work) to a wall of graffiti near my office to take some snaps.  It was ridiculously windy and I nearly got run over a handful of times whilst posing in the road but I guess it was worth it for these pics!

It’s another monochrome look (shock, shock, horror) with a white textured Primark t-shirt teamed with my favourite baggy cotton trousers from Asos.  If I’m feeling lazy or need a cosy day I will wear these bottoms as it feels like I’m wearing pyjamas!  I bought the wedges out for this look as well to give a more ‘sophisticated’ feel to the outfit.

These photos have really made me realise that my roots are horrendous and my hair is quite dull so I should probably book another hair appointment soon.  I think I want to go blonder this summer (although not the white blonde I used to be) and add some more golden tones.  What do you guys think?  Any advice would be great as I’m terrible at making decisions!

I’ll be back with another outfit post soon as I really enjoy doing them!

Any hair advice greatly appreciated!

    That Primark T is cute. I love that from a distance it just looks like a normal plain T but up close it has a pretty pattern!

    Such a stunning background for the picture! Your outfit is in contrast and stands out perfectly!

    I love this outfit! It's simple but still chic. I love the texture in the top as well. And I actually have a similar pair of shoes from H&M!

    I love your hair colour in the main pic on your profile. Its a nice warm colour.

    These are such great photographs – I love the contrast of the monochrome against the colourful graffiti. I also love love love your tattoo and nail colour – which nail polish is that, if you don't mind me asking?


    p.s. I actually really like the colour your hair currently is – I think you suit the darker more natural shade and the lighter shade through the waves is so pretty.

    Love the flash of neon on your nails! 🙂

    I love this background! I love your hair as it is, and I'd say just top up the roots and get golden/honey toned highlights? What is your natural hair colour?

    I think blonde for summer will be really lovely! Got to love a seasonal change!xo

    I think you'd look lovely with some highlights through the top, although I quite like the messy root look too!
    I also need to find this t shirt, the Primark in my town is like a jumble sale though so I have a battle on my hands xx

    those trousers look so comfy and smart, and the detail on your top is lovely 🙂 maybe some lighter highlights to start getting lighter – i regret using so much harsh bleach on mine !

    I LOVE your hair as it is but I do think the Mary-Kate Olsen ashy blonde works really well on pale gals like us. I am SO blonde just now just because it's really easy for me to box-dye it at home but I'm really wanting to go to the hair dressers and get it properly done and a good adhy blonde tone is what I think I'm going for. Have you decided what color you're going to go?

    Love the pictures and even though the outfit is simple but very attractive. anyway, great post as always ! xo

    I love white Ts! I like your hair. Although if you wanted to brighten it a but highlights would be perfect!
