When I think of black and white, I generally think of black as the dominant colour with white thrown in.
Certainly not mostly white with a bit of black thrown in – but I thought it’d make a nice change to wear white trousers, despite it being winter, with some bold stripes and then just black accessories.
And of course a little colour as well… did you think I’d forgotten who I was for a minute?!!

Despite all this black and white talk, this outfit actually started with the La Redoute jacket – another item I’d had my eye on for a while, hoping it’d go into the sale. (Which it did – down to less than half price.) My signature style of oversized shape, pinky-red checks and masculine tailoring? Oooooh, yes please. Another addition to my oversized blazer arsenal.
The black and white followed after. I dug out my (very old) white stretchy trousers (very similar to these gorgeous white Ted Baker joggers I found) and the black lace-up boots – bought months and months ago but not really worn properly yet.
So yes, it’s another outfit worn round the house ‘because lockdown’, but it’s fun to dress up like I talked about a couple of weeks ago. When you force yourself to do it I find you actually do it more often than when you’re able to leave the house for more than dog walking or grocery shopping. Hopefully by spring (god it can’t come quickly enough IMO) we might be able to wear these dress-up outfits for real.
BTW if you’re stuck in the deep freeze happening over North America, for goodness sake please stay safe and well. I promise I’ll NEVER again moan about our -10°C (14°F) when you guys are getting temperatures of -40°C (same in °F)… #SuperShockedFace
Favourite thing you’re wearing right now – anyone else feeling the b&w thing? Or are you too bloody cold to give two sh$ts about anything other than being warm enough?? Comment below…
Stay safe, XOXO
