Style | Simple Monochrome

I still haven't strayed away from black yet, but at least today I added some white in too! I absolutely love monochrome looks, I personally feel they always look very put together. It seems to be a colour palette that just will always work well.... well almost always. 

I have really been loving wearing simple pieces with interesting details. I'm not a massive print and pattern kind of girl, so for me it's great when clothes have an interesting cut or shape. I used to try and stay away from anything that showed off my shoulders as I packed a bit more weight previously and would often find the halterneck style cut VERY unflattering. 

However, though i'm still not where I want to be weight wise, I have trimmed down. And now (at last) I am happy enough to show my shoulders off to the world. I am absolutely in love with this top, not only is it a crisp white but I think the cut around the neck is just really interesting and quite bold. Happy Clara.

Today was a day for heels. I used to be absolutely obsessed with chunky massive high heels, but now I have found love in smaller elegant ones. Not only have I gone for a smaller heel but I have also found myself lusting over pointed shoes. I can't walk past a shop window display without being pulled in by the promise of some new point shoes. It's bad, I know. But there is something about the pointed toe that really elongates the leg and makes things look a bit slimmer! 

My clutch is from last summer, I am always keen to recycle my favourite pieces from last year. I really like the transparent sections of the bag, and again I love it just because its white! 

I've also been experimenting a bit with my make-up recently, trying out lipsticks and blushes and all sorts of things! I love bold lipsticks, especially the vampy kind. I'm not too sure just yet whether or not they suit me, but hey i'm just going to go for it!

I've been having such a lovely time so far this summer, catching up with people. Definitely good to be home!

All my love,
