Monochrome and Red with Navabi*

Sunday 21 May 2017

When I was a greebo teenager my 'thing' was wearing black with a super bright accent colour. I particularly loved all black with pops of bright pink, purple or red. To this day I still love a monochrome outfit with a single bright colour and this dress was just begging for a bright colour to be paired with it, so monochrome and red it was!

Jacket - Zhenzi at Navabi*
Shoes - Converses

I was lucky enough to win a voucher from Sazzmatazz Clothing a little while ago on twitter, so I picked out this fab striped dress that I'd seen them share and everyone who has it looks so great in it. It has long sleeves, stripes in two different directions and POCKETS. I love a dress with pockets and this made me really happy. It's got no stretch to it but fits relatively true to size. I do find the arms a little snug and it's a little tight across the shoulders for me, but I am pretty broad. I'm 5ft 11 and it sits just below the knee on me, so on someone of more average height it would be a true mini length style.

I've been loving denim jackets lately and when I saw this red one on Navabi it had to be mine. It's stretchy and soft and just lovely. With a dress like this I think it works so well as a statement piece. I'd almost be tempted to wear double denim with this being bright red and less obviously denim. Almost.

It's a very classic denim jacket, just in an awesome tomato red colour. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this, sometimes in the summer an all black dress feels like it needs brightening up and this will do the job perfectly.

This outfit feels really 'me', I often don't buy things that are monochrome for fear of them not washing well but I do so love them that I really need to give them more of a chance!

Much love,
