OOTD | Black On Black

Shirt - Topshop
Stripy long sleeve top - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop
Brogues - Dune

My canon 1200d has been the best investment I've made to date and I'm always looking for ways to improve my photography both for my blog and for travelling. I've had it for a year now and felt that it was time to finally upgrade to a 50mm lens! It arrived on Saturday and I was out the door in seconds to test it out, I'll let you make up your mind about the quality of these, but I am so pleased with the result and I know that there is still a lot for me to learn about this camera!

Battling storm Frank last weekend proved an impossible task of trying to get out in the dry for a few moments to snap some pictures. Remarkably the sun actually started to shine on Sunday which was definitely a New Year miracle! Whilst making the best of the weather I headed down to the Barbican, it's something about the antiquated cobbled streets that make your outfits pop! The winding lanes that are littered with flags and historic buildings make it the perfect photographic opportunity.

For casual weekend style I went for an all black & nautical styled look with pastel hues for a really effortlessly chic look. I've always been a fan of high street fashion, and this whole outfit encompasses my favourite high street stores & small online retailers. The black and stripy foundations of this outfit are all from Topshop in Drake Circus, perhaps a high street store at the more expensive end of the spectrum, but one that always does the best basics at affordable prices, that you know will last. A white washed denim shirt would really complement this look for a more relaxed style, whilst the striped top will look great with white jeans and baby pink accessories in the summer. This candy coloured bobble hat was a gift purchased from online store Amelia Jane London, they also do fluffy pom pom keyrings and scarves to match. Their products are such great quality and a warm cosy hat like this is definitely needed when you're battling the wind by the sea in Plymouth! To complement the hat, I paired it with these pink glittery brogues from Dune, the perfect finishing touch!

Casual looks like these are an instant winner for the weekend, especially after weeks of over indulgence at Christmas. Monochromatic outfits will always be a style staple of mine, they’re so easy to wear, dress up or dress down, and as the saying goes I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker colour...

What do you think of this outfit? Have you heard of Amelia Jane London before?
