linebreakEarlier this week I headed to one of my favourite cities – Manchester! It was a much needed ‘chill’ and ‘window shopping’ day, which consisted of a Starbucks (a caramel frappe and a skinny blueberry muffin, yum), whilst I sorted out my portfolio. I then had a cheeky browse in Urban Outfitters. I love their accessories and gifts section – if I could, I would have a whole UO library in my house – I just love their books! Today I am on my way to Leeds for a girls weekend, which will be amazing, as I haven’t seen my best friends in two months!

What are your weekend plans?

FASHION – mad for monochrome

fashion - mad for monochromeIf there’s one trend which is currently taking over my wardrobe, it’s monochrome.

I wore this to my first London Fashion Week show on Friday, (I know, I’m such a newbie but it was an amazing experience) you can read my review here.

Black high waist skinny jeans are my go-to (I love anything high waisted) and this River Island crop top is a great light layer. I love my cut-out buckle boots from Matalan – they are the best sale item that I have ever bought, and my instagram followers have spied this Zara necklace before

Is monochrome taking over your wardrobe too? I’d love to know what you think!

From H-T: Necklace – Topshop, Denim Shirt – Primark, Denim Shorts – Vintage & Tights – Republic.

You’re probably thinking: ‘Sarah’s posted an outfit?!! What has the world come to?!’ I know, I know, I don’t usually post OOTDs (outfit of the days) on my blog, purely because I don’t think my style is inspirational – I’m no Lily, Gem or Olivia. But seeing as my internship is coming up – one month of interning at a busy weekly fashion magazine – I thought I should try and get some ideas flowing for what to wear (I need at least 20 outfits!)

So here is my take on double denim. The shirt is a men’s small from Primark – needless to say, it’s VERY baggy, but I sort of like baggy tops even though they have a tendency to hide my frame. At £10 it’s a tad pricey for Primark, but I’m sure I will get a lot of use out of it. My shorts are vintage – possibly from Urban Outfitters– and even though they are denim, I think they contrast the light denim shirt well. As you can see, one of my images features some festival bands. These will feature in all of my photos – they are a bit grubby, but oh well! They are from Live At Leeds 2009, Macs Night Club, Leeds Festival 2010, 2011 and 2009.

Today has been a slow day (full of Smallville, blog reading and eBay scouring), however tonight I plan a trip to the library to get started on my Journalism Issues essay due for next week! I plan to get most of it done tonight, wish me luck!

What do you think of my take on double denim? Fashionista or fashion faux pas?
