Monochrome Wish List

I, like many other like-minded fashion lovers, have been pretty obsessed with the black and white trend around right now. In fact, I don't really think of it as a trend as such, since trends usually pass, but black and white are colours which are always around in one way or the other, so investing in all of these fabulous pieces in shops right now somehow seems the very right thing to do.

I have put together a little list of things I desperately need in my wardrobe right now - one of them (the checked shirt by Topshop Unique) has actually already found a way in there and Aldo shoes are firmly next in the line.

Another first day.

Wednesday this week was a rather special day for me, as I started my most-coveted and fought-for shiny new job. Dress-code in my new office is casual, however people do judge you from the very first impression (often before you have even opened your mouth), so I did put a lot of thought into what to wear on the big day.

As everyone else is the office is dressed casual, a business suit would have definitely been out of place but then I didn't want to look too casual either, being the first day and all. So - what I decided to wear was a simple grey shirt from Primark, favourite black skinnies from Zara and studded pumps from Asos, adding a bit of bling with the help of a spiky necklace from H&M. Felt really comfortable and chic all day!

PS. I am rather impressed with the material and overall quality of the Primark shirt. It's once in a blue moon I find myself in Primark (due to previous experiences of clothes bought from there only to last until the first wash - boo), however this shirt was more than worth its £12 price tag. It's almost opaque with a flattering cut and rather luxurious-looking flowy fabric - perfect to wear with pretty much anything! Top marks for value for money.
