Fuzzy Goodness

Sometimes you lay your eyes on something, and things just click! That was the case with this grey sweater I spotted at Primark. My trip to London was at the brink of winter and the stores were flooded with cozy knits and fuzzy goodness. Lucky for me, winter wear is my weakness and I'm obsessed with the colour grey! Not to mention, this sweater came with a detachable embellished collar. Minimal is my jam, but this look particularly was put together to facilitate the long hours of sight seeing we had planned. Can't wait for the December chills to cozy up in this baby!

London Sojourn!

Vacations have a way of liberating you, especially when it's a long deserved break! After two years of all work and no play, I headed to London last month to visit one of my closest friend. London was never on my radar as a place I must visit anytime soon, but I'm so glad I visited this amazing city sooner rather than later. With its culture and history, the city has so much depth! I love that you can balance a wasted night at a club with a theatre visit the following morning. Not every city has that kind of variety to offer!
While mornings in London were spent sight-seeing, cycling around town in the cold wind, enjoying park picnics and shopping ofcourse, night came with bar crawls and some activities that are best left unsaid. My favourite part of London : the Underground! I miss my oyster card the most, while it sits in my wallet, idle. Other than that, I enjoyed OD'ing on layers. With my monochrome wardrobe and my penchant for layering, it felt as though London gets me! It was the beginning of winter and thankfully the weather though fickle, was pretty amazing!

Enough can be said about London in all it's awesomeness, and while I revel in my memories of the city, here are some snaps from my vacay. Just a fraction of what I have, and hardly doing justice to my amazing experience, these are some moments that shaped my trip. 
London you beauty, I miss you so! xx

Summer Blacks

I cannot account for the number of times I have been on the receving end of "Aren't you burning in up in that black top?" or "Are you really wearing black in this heat?", the latest being as recent as two weeks back. I don't think black insinuates winter and as someone who hails black and white as my uniform (as my guy friend recently pointed out), I wont give up on blacks just because the temperature is soaring. Haters can hate, but there is a way to wear black when the going gets hot. Opt for light fabrics and floaty silhouettes to keep you cool. Todays #ootd is an all black outfit (big surprise!) and demonstrates an all black outfit thats perfect for a hot day. The black pleated top is slinky and sheer, keeping it light, whereas the pants are a breezy cotton. The silhouettes are relaxed keeping it minimal and airy for a hot day. Monochrome doesn't have to be monotonous!

Brown Shoes + Black Pants

Brown worn with black is considered a fashion faux pas, though I haven't quite understood why. I happen to like the colour brown and have worn it with black on more than one occasion and nobody called me on it. As long as you make it look great, there is no good reason to abstain from pairing these two colours.
Here I complimented my all black outfit with brown accessories. Sans jewelry, the look is minimal and the brown brogues and messenger bag compliment the outfit to give it an androgynous look. This black ankle length pant with a paper-bag waist is my new obsession because it's comfortable and versatile. I have also come to realize that my wardrobe once filled with colours is now boiling down to the basics of black, whites and greys. But you know what they say about people who wear black, they lead colourful lives.

Midi-mizing

Midi-skirts are quite the rage this season, what with Burberry setting the trend in their spring collection. The length is equal parts class and sexy, which makes it perfect for any occasion be it a work presentation or a dinner date. I would personally pick midi-skirts for their elegance over tarty short-skirts any given day. The right amount of leg can be very flattering and looks alluring.

While I know that horizontal stripes are not universally flattering, I, thanks to my good genes and fast metabolism could afford to wear it without feeling uncomfortable. This high-waisted midi-skirt would ideally look great with a black crop-top, but I wanted to mix it up and break the outfit down and chose a white top instead. It's been knotted to show just a sliver of midriff while adding a fun twist to the outfit, quite literally! With bare-minimum accessories, the outfit is ideal for summer mornings. Pair with something sparkly and high pumps at night. Dress up or dress down, this skirt is a winner!
