OOTD: Monochrome Blues

 "Monochrome blues" … see what I did there, I tried hehe.




 .: Top - Cotton On // Skort - Glassons // Outerwear - Jay Jays // Shoes - Windsor Smith // Rose Quartz Necklace - DIY // Rings - Rings and Tings & Equip // Bag - Seed Heritage // Watch - Michael Kors // Sunglasses - Versace :.


So here, I have created a simple and effortless look (perfect for a casual day out) by pulling together some monochrome basics and chucking on my trusty windsor smith's. The weather has been fluctuating a bit lately (but thats pretty much sydney weather all the time). So even though its the season of summer, I decided to throw on a holey(?) cardigan - just to be on the safe side; I mean one - it blocks those deadly UV rays and two - because the knit is quite loose, it makes the perf combination with a light breeze. 

Oh and not to mention, I am currently in love with the Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion. Although, it's  probably not the right season to be wearing it in Australia and in fact, it seems to clash with the summery colours. But nonetheless, I thought I'd just point that out. And for all you American readers - it seems to be quite the trend there so enjoy it while you can!

Otherwise, thank you for reading and let me know what you think of this outfit!
