MONOCHROME HEARTS

(Top, ASOS. Cardigan, Valley Girl. Pants, Glassons. Booties, Glassons. Necklace, DIY. Bracelet & ring, gifted)

Happy Winter everybody! (Well, everybody living below the equator.) This week has been a not-so-pleasant mix of plummeting temperatures, never ending Uni work and the looming presence of exams which are fast approaching..! On the bright side, it's officially less than a month until my winter break starts, and slightly  more than a month until I go to Brisbane! A little bit way too excited about that second one :)

Today's outfit is my attempt at jumping onto the monochrome bandwagon, which is definitely one of the hottest trends right now. These awesome printed pants are from Glassons, but I actually won them from The Style Insider's blog competition, which I am super grateful for. I had been thinking about purchasing them for a while because the heart print is just too adorable; plus it knocks out the printed pant and monochrome trend in one. I was also lucky that these are a 'cropped' length; as you can see, I'm slightly vertically challenged, so they're the perfect full length pant for me. Keeping the look casual, I paired it with a plain white t-shirt, comfy cardi and some little silver accessories. Of course, I had to wear my favourite black booties (also from Glassons!) to pull it all together. 

These are actually the first pair of real pants (i.e. not denim) that I've owned since I was about 10 years old. It's a very refreshing change from jeans; I think I'm going to have to expand my collection.

Hope you've all had a super start to your weekend! xx
