Style Edit #1: Monochromatic Coveting


It's rare that I have colour in my wardrobe (I think the only colour I have is denim jeans) but I definitely dispute the fact that monochromatic outfit choices can be boring. Recently, I've been majorly inspired by the recent scandanavian inspired style movement which has started to creep into both my room and closet. In fact, as I sit here today I'm wearing an oversized grey jumper dress with some Stan Smiths so I like to think that I'm (sorta) pulling it off.

But whilst this dress was a steal from ASOS, there are a couple of designer favourites that I've spotted on some of my go-to blogs (harperandharley, I'm looking at you) that when I win the lottery, might eventually end up in my wardrobe.

I'm obsessed with the new Alexa Chung for AG Jeans Fall Collection and this Scotland Wool Turtle Neck jumper is everything I could want in autumn. It would look fab with tailored trousers and brogues. A designer I'm constantly lusting after is Saint Laurent and with Hedi Slimane on board, their whole aesthetic is me in a nutshell. The minimal look of this wallet is exactly the kind of thing I need in my life. And then another Alexa Chung number is this Sacred Monster jumper which is just fun (but entirely necessary).

Then onto these Victoria Beckham Mirrored Oversized Aviators - the only frame I wear is that of an aviator and these oversized badboys are an essential for the summer. VB is the queen of sunglasses and these are very Gigi Hadid who is slowly creeping into my book of style inspiration. Erring away from the Gigi Hadid stylefile is this Rag and Bone Fedora which is very a la Chrissy Teigan who always somehow looks flawless. I do have a H&M version but well, it's just so pretty to look at. The Adidas Superstars are purely an excessive addition as I already have the Stan Smiths but I think they are slightly more casual than the Smiths (and also very Gigi Hadid inspired).

And my final selection of completely excessive shoes - the Nike Roshe Runs. Not for the gym but they'll be cute with jeans as part of a travel outfit. Something I'll never ever ever be able to afford is this Chloe Double Breasted Coat but I'll be searching out for a cheaper alternative. It can really dress up an outfit and add a sophisticated flair. The final addition to my covet list is the Acne Jensen Boots, I do have a cheaper ASOS alternative that I love but these are just so beautiful. Now excuse my whilst I set up a saving plan...
