Shades of Grey


For the last few years I've had a really bright and colourful wardrobe but lately I'm heading back to basics with a mix of black, white and grey becoming my staples. This year I've noticed a huge change in the items I'm drawn to and it's becoming less about colours and prints and more about fabric, longevity and comfort. I'm trying to start to build a wardrobe full of pieces I'll be able to wear and love for years to come! 

Anyway, it's a long weekend here in New Zealand at the moment! So I'm happy to say that even though it's 11.50am on a Monday I'm happily tucked up in bed, listening to music, catching up on blogs, drinking tea and skyping Liss. It's nice to have the extra day to enjoy some down time and catch up on bits and pieces around the house. 

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Make sure you check out my Lonely Hearts giveaway if you haven't already and keep your eye out on Wednesday for my next giveaway which I'm really excited about! x

  9. I really love your outfit, especially the t-shirt! I'm a just a tad obsessed with leather accents, so that may be why..

  12. We have had a similar Monday morning. I WAS intending on tackling my never ending 'to do list' but staying in bed with a big cardigan, chocolate and reading blogs is much more fun :) You look lovely. I still need to get my hands on a leather skirt!

  14. I love your skirt! I've just stumbled upon your blog thanks to bloglovin. :) Anyway, I find it cute when you said you were married to your best friend. I've always found that romantic.

  15. I'm really loving grey lately. I'm also drawn more to classic, timeless styles lately. I feel like I'm only starting to develop my own style this year

  17. We have a long weekend coming up this weekend and I cannot wait! By the way, would love to hear an update on how your business is going :)

    I know what you mean about investing in pieces that last for years. I'm trying to do that as well instead of just buying crazy out stuff that I can't wear all the time. That top is lovely. xo

  18. I've also noticed a similar change in style this year. This Autumn/ Winter I've been wearing a lot more black, grey, and khaki and also playing a lot more with texture.
