I love monochrome ensembles, I do.

But I love it more when there is a dash of colour because let’s face it there’s only so much greyness you can take when the weather is so brisk!!

Here, I have added a jacket in blue. The Jacket goes well with my stripe dress and keeps me stylishly warm.

Dress & tights: H&M, Jacket: Jessica Simpson via TK Maxx, Booties: New Look, Bag: Osprey London, Lips: Mac, Statement Earrings: Tu, Bangles: India, Watch, Tissot, Eyes: Parrot Eyes (Designer purple, bodyshop metallic eye definer in industrial blue & vibrant emerald)

Moral of this story: don’t be shy to mix your monochrome with a dash of colour, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Every girl should have the perfect pick-me top that not only perks her mood up but goes with practically everything in her wardrobe.

This heart print shirt fits the bill perfectly for me. The tiny little hearts featured on this elevates my mood instantly (true story!). The heart print has been doing the fashion rounds ever since Victoria Beckham wore Burberry’s burgundy heart number this September. Needless to say, it became an instant hit.

Shirt: Debenhams ( similar here), jeans (from first look): Dorothy Perkins, Pumps (from first look): Dune, Bag: Osprey London via TK Maxx, Skirt: Marks & Spencers, Booties: New look via Asos

I’ve paired the shirt with a skirt as well as black skinnies proving how versatile certain things can be. It is subtle enough to be worn for work yet fun enough for after work. A win-win situation, don’t you think?
