monochrome




shirt: H&M
skirt: H&M
blazer: river island
nails: models own top turquoise
rings: jwlry

Today has been nice, something about staying indoors when the weathers bad and just sitting down, going through some of your fave blogs, drinking a few cups of tea and generally chilling. My brother also locked me in the house so I have a bit of cabin fever, although I havent decided to jump out the window yet so it cant be all bad!

Just wore this off white shirt, bandage skirt & blazer, maybe a little dressy for doing nothing in, but when have I ever stuck to the rules! I've hardly bought any clothes this month,  I just sort of don't like anything enough to spend my money on things. The only thing I desperately want is this tunic in black so I'm holding out for Topshop to come up with the goods!

Thanks to everyone who's already followed ETC LLYMLRS, I know there's a little grumbling about having two blogs, To clear things up, I'm not giving up this blog, I'm a little unsure why people would think I would be... It would be crazy if I went and threw all the effort I've put into this one away. Its going to be the "off topic" blog, basically the  stuff that doesn't fit in with what I have going on here. I think it's gonna work so much better having the two separate ones as I know not everyone likes the more general stuff, some people just want to see clothes and the outfits! I've just a blog on there about the camera that I use.

  2. I wish I could be bothered to get dressed, I've been in all day too and I'm still in my pjs! xx

  3. Black and white is a great combo. In my opinion, you can never be too dressed up... who cares if you're not going anywhere? :-)

  5. I think it's a brilliant idea to have 2 separate blogs. different people might be looking for different kinds of things and with you having such a wide audience it makes sense :) I love your blog and I love your ramblings too. Can't wait for more of it! xx

  11. I really like the blazer and shirt - they don't look formal at all, which tends to happen to me when I wear stuff like this.

  12. I love that Tunic you are wanting, very nice indeed! Mind you, I just love everything you wear (oh jeez I sound like a stalker). I don't mean to, I just find your style very inspiring.

  14. I like the ETC blog :) I love blogs that have a bit of personality to it (not that this one doesn't have any personality, but I mean, I like reading about what people get up to and general tidbits like that! Outfits are nice, but people's lives are much more interesting!)

    Great outfit, love the monochrome-ness. I wish I could wear plain black and white without looking boring, haha.

  17. Your outfit is lovely, the monochrome looks really cool on you! And omg that tunic would look really nice in black, I think I've seen a blue one but it wasn't as good!

  19. I was thinking about doing something different with my hair and was toying with the idea of ombre... so I typed 'brown hair ombre' into google images for some inspiration on colours... up pops a millions celebrities and your in the midst of them on the first page... your a celebrity now;). So good it had to be print screened... http://i873.photobucket.com/albums/ab291/DKD-Designs/Untitled-1.png?t=1311014027

    Anyway, I love the outfit and who cares if your not going out, you can never be too dressed up! :D.

  20. Loving this look :) By any chance is your skirt part of the £3.99 range that they do? If so I got one of these in great and love these skirts will also be getting one in blue.

  28. I love this outfit and the pops of colour your nails and rings give to the outfit :)
    I think it's a brilliant idea to have two blogs, that way you can still blog about things that don't necessarily fit the mould of this blog :) xx

  30. Love the shirt and skirt together, so classic and simple!

  31. This outfit is simple and yet fab! Great blog! I'm just starting to get my blog Good Wear Day off the ground and it would mean so much if people could take a look and support it by following.
    p.s. those rings are awe-sum

  32. I wouldn't say it's too dressy for sitting inside! Just because your not going out doesn't mean you need to stay in your PJ's. I wore a silky shirt today with a pair of high waisted shorts and when I went, someone asked me if I was going anywhere special because I was 'dressed up'. Personally I was in normal clothing haha.
    Also, I'm really looking forward to reading everything you right on your seperate blog!
