Black, White and Bright


A bright orange coat – what could possibly go wrong?

Okay, so I guess worn with items just as eye-blindingly bright could be very wrong. But with simple black and white underneath we’re definitely on to a winner.

I Am Wearing
Coat – Reiss, High Neck Top – Asos, Jumper – Zara,
Skirt – USC, Hat – Miss Selfridge,
Boots – Kurt Geiger,
Lips – MAC Cosmetics (in Morange)

I found the coral coloured coat looked at its best with black boots and a dog-tooth jumper over a black skater skirt. Why choose between monochrome or brights when they look great together! 


The monochrome jumper and the bright straight coat are bold pieces, so I toned the look down with a plain black floppy hat and my all time favourite black boots. They may have been worn to death but I still can’t get enough of them! They literally go with anything and everything.


Phoebe joined in the fun and wanted to be the centre of attention as always! I gave in and let her pose away for the camera. Fifi went missing just after these photos were taken a few days ago but fingers crossed she’ll turn up.


I wore a high neck crop top underneath the dog-tooth jumper to add more depth – it is Autumn after all, which is the season for layering! Be creative with your clothes. You may have tops in your wardrobe that you NEVER wear (I know I do), but look at them in a different way and ask yourself if they can be worn underneath or over another top or jumper. It’ll soon become your favourite item once you find a new way to wear it!
