MONOCHROME MATTER


Silk Black Cloat - Topshop,
Circle glasses - eBay,
Mesh Jumper - H&M,
White Skort - Zara,
Black Boots - Topshop,
Monochrome Backpack - Primark



I really love this outfit, I know it's really matchy matchy.. but with monochrome being everywhere at the moment and with me loving the shades black and white, it was the perfect ensemble to put together. I am seriously in LOVE with this backpack. I picked it up in Primark last week and took to instagram straight away, keeping my followers in suspense, waiting for this very blog post to reveal where it's actually from. Surprised??

If you guys happen to buy it, which I'm sure you will. Instagram it and tag me in the picture, I want to see how many of my followers have equally amazing taste, and who actually read my posts :)

My whole outfit it surrounding the style of the bag, keeping it really edgy, monochrome obviously and clean lines. I love all these high street brands at the moment and my large circle mirrored glasses are finally out the draw and will be a top favourite over the next month. You can get these anywhere and there are so many variations on eBay.

Hope you like.

FINDING MY BALANCE


Long Grey Cardigan - H&M,
Burgandy Top - Primark,
Leather High Waisted Trousers - H&M,


Hi guys, completely shocked and overwhelmed at the response about my blog this week. It's really exciting getting that exposure through instagram and people really appreciating your own person style and creativity.

Please head over to my instagram using Velvet Writer and give me a follow if you prefer more visual updates of my posts, rather than have me ramble on here.

I really enjoyed shooting this outfit post, I had a really successful shopping trip at H&M the other day when my mum came up to visit me in Liverpool. As most mother and daughter get-togethers, the plan was to head straight to the shops till we become overly stressed and then need the excuse to relax and natter over a 'large' glass of wine at lunch. 

Finally I managed to pick up some leather high waisted trousers for about £24.99. H&M really do have an amazing range of leather pants to suit all shapes and sizes, so if you are still looking for that hint of leather in your wardrobe.. then this high street store is my recommendation.

I also picked up this gorgeous long grey cardigan in the sale for just £7. I'm a sucker for all types of cloaks and cover ups, as I'm quite a lazy fashionista in the day time and during work. I liked the idea of grey, as I already have a nice silk black one from Topshop. My mum bought these gorgeous 'me and you' beanies, also from H&M for me at Christmas time, I hadn't planned on doing the cliche photo with my boyfriend but as he's my photographer, he couldn't help himself wanting to get in on the action.

Whether I wear these hats most days.. I don't know, but Jack loves the 'You' one :)

Now I'm going to harp on about just how amazing my new trainers are!!!!!! I was originally supposed to have these raring to go on Christmas day but unfortunately the size 5 didn't fit. (I'm a size 5 by the way). I was really disappointed, as I hadn't tried any on before and just fell in love with this style and colour after seeing so many people walking round the city delighfully in them... and understandably I needed my own pair.

I waited till January to finally get round to changing them for a size 6 as they are really neat fitting, and even the 6 is calling it close but god were they worth the wait. New Balance 574's are the most comfortable trainer I have every owed. The moment they are on my feet, I can't help but bounce around full of life. There is also nothing better than going to work, knowing you are going to be on your feet for the next 9 hours and not going to hear a peep out of your heels or toes.

I chose black, white and grey, purely because I only had to see them on someone once, and I immediately needed them in my possession, but now it has become such a practical idea, as they go with everything. Win win!

White on White


Brown Sunglasses - Primark,
White Jumper - Topshop Boutique,
White Shirt Dress - Topshop Boutique,
Monochrome Heels - Missguided,
Rose Gold Watch - Michael Kors


Welcome to a new fresh look to Velvet Writer.. more clean styling and fresher outfit posts. I am hiding away my bright clothes and edgy ways, for more modern, cutting edge, monochrome trends this month. You will be seeing a fimilar style in most of the posts that follow. I see this as the evolution of my blog and how I see my style and taste changing from when I first started.

I have white on white, both Topshop Boutique pieces. I regret not showing off how amazing this shirt dress underneath and how much structural detail it offers, but I wanted to wear an oversized jumper and accentuate how the dress is slightly londer and curved at the back. 

I think this jumper looks so rich, Topshop in Liverpool no longer sell this jumper anymore, only in black.. but you can still catch this beauty online and on eBay. Mine is quite a big size, as I purposely wanted it over sized, I think it's a size 14. 


Hope you liked it guys!
