MARITIME MONOCHROME -#OOTN

Skirt: Topshop
Necklace: Market 
I love the monochrome look - add a pop of colour or some statement jewellery and you've got the look down for the season- so when I went out the other night when my chap came home I was more than excited to style my new Topshop monochrome crop top... 

I'd originally thought of a nautical theme for the 'Maritime Weekend' in my home time. But when out shopping with my girls I came across this baby in the Topshop sale for £7 and thought it would go perfectly with my peplum skirt. I added the Barry M Neon Pink (which I did a review on recently HERE) to add a 'pop' of colour (to cringe and use the overly used term) as the little flicks of neon added flashed of subtle colour in order to make sure the outfit overpowered by monochrome - then I complimented the gold in my Zara heels by pairing up my statement piece and my new Rock's N Chains Marie Curie Charity bracelet - which goes with everything and for an amazing cause...

So that's my take on a simply monochrome look... simple, but effective and showing enough skin to give a sexy edge and a subtle tan to bring out the contrast in the monochrome clearly. I loved wearing this; the sheer arms were cool but covering as were the patches in the croptop... This was simple but a nice classy piece and certainly went down well that weekend!

Tell me what you think of my monochrome look? Do you love monochrome? Have you picked up any fabulous sale pieces?
