If you’re looking for inspiration for the perfect outfit, look no further. I have searched high and low for ideas to bring together, if the outfit is not completely to your taste I hope it will spark ideas on how to adapt it and style it your own way.

Lots of trends have been seen this year and I have been loving all things nautical and monochrome. These trends are incredibly versatile and I have personally several pieces in my wardrobe that I can dress up or down for the office or for the weekends. Slowly i’ve been trying to introduce bright colours into my black and white land so I hope you enjoy what i’ve put together for you.


As you can see i’ve gone for a nautical monochrome mix with the dress. This particular one can be picked up from Missguided  at the  bargain price of £19.99. I personally love the versatility of this dress, great for casual days with cute sandals and a tote bag and of course the mandatory oversized sunnies or in this case, dressed up with heals and pretty accessories for the wowza impact on your hot date!

I have opted for a biker style gilet as I think it’s nice and edgy against the heals and dress! I always worry about taking something to wear for extra warmth, this could easily be tucked in your bag or worn open. This particular gilet is from Miss Selfridge and can be picked up here .

I  have paired this combo with some simple peep toe shoes. Not too high but enough to make your legs and butt an eye magnet! I have opted for a pop of colour to break up the black and white theme. You could swap these for any colour of your choice, pink, red even pastel shades would work great! These particular shoes are from the brand Bata and can be purchased here!


To emphasis the colour I have opted for turquoise accessories! If you’ve read my other accessories post you’ll see that turquoise and me are very good friends!  The collar necklaces seem to be a good statement piece one that would sit lovely atop the dress above. I personally don’t like to overkill on jewellery! I think it’s nice to follow the whole less is more saying. I have just opted for a leather bracelet and collar necklace. If you’re interested in the collar necklace check out this link! The leather bracelet is simple but cute, check it out here. 

Last but not least! A girl can never have too many handbags, I have searched high and low for one that would match, da dudu da!


Beautiful. After finding this I have purchased one myself as I love it! I found it here , dressy but practical it’s big enough for all your clobber but smart enough to sit under your arm. Your date will be bowled over, he won’t know what hit him. I hope you’ve enjoyed our collaboration!

From each of us, much love to you all x
