The Guest Post: Monochrome, Day to Night.


When someone suggested a style related guest post for Saturdays over in my little corner of the interwebs the first person I thought of was Alida. Amazingly quirky and elegant at the same time, it’s almost impossible not to feel a slight pang of jealousy when she rocks up looking effortless in a leather jacket, statement piece of choice and red lips. Today she’s put together a little day to night style post for us based on the monochrome trend – well, that’s me sold already then isn’t it?

Alida:“My new obsession is monochrome. Simple black and white pieces, adding chunky jewellery and dark lipstick to add some drama. I bought this beetlejuice number (photos 1&2) from Topshop for £26, I really like the back detail and think this is a perfect summer dress.

I am in love with this jersey dress from Zara (photos 3&4), it reminds me of Givenchy, baseball jerseys and A$AP Rocky. I bought it for £29.99 which for Zara completely agrees with my tight purse strings. I styled it with a leather jacket and a red bag for a pop of colour.”

When she’s not making me completely jealous of her wardrobe, Alida is a photographer and has her own blog and YouTube channel. It’s so worth taking a look at – the reason this post took me so damn long to edit is purely because I got sucked into watching her videos! She’s starting a Q&A series soon and I personally cannot wait to see more!
