Whatever's hip is not happening!

Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / Boohoo.com Striped Blazer / Internacionale Top / New Look Necklace / Thrift Leggings / Primark Satchel / New Look Heels. 

So I have ran back to the comfortable arms of my long coloured hair; I just couldn't cope simply because I got a little too accustomed to it. Its all about enlightenment! Call it an overdose on stripes, I'm rather fond of exaggerating with patterns now and then. This look is a departure from my rather grungy/outrageously colourful tendencies. I chose simple, sophisticated staples, donning stripes from head to toe! I hopped on the countercultural bandwagon a while ago, the kind that appreciates the monochrome trend, oversized denim jackets tied around the waist, 90s grunge and the beaiuty of simplistic pieces paired up with statement staples. Just because it's Spring doesn't mean I'm exempt from wearing black and white; going monochrome and still maintaining the spark of Spring with a hint of colour. 

I kept it quite simple today as I romped around town earlier on. I actually planned this outfit a while ago and I have finally gotten around to wearing it. I got this blazer sometime last year and boy am I glad I got it. Just my luck that the monochrome trend got huge this year. Teaming it up with striped leggings, I was going for a simplistic uptown look. It was only inevitable that I would throw in a bright red top and lipstick to complete my look; colour adds just that little bit more character which I believe every outfit needs. A satchel and a pair of heels later, this spontaneous look was born. It's been raining on and off today so not exactly the perfect Spring weather but hopefully the sun comes back soon.

Hope you are all having a lovely day!
