OOTD: Blocks of Monochrome

Top: Calvin Klein 
Jeans: Topshop
Shoes: Minnetonka

I'm sorry for the break between this and my last post, it's been a crazy couple of months (in a good way!). I've been travelling around America with my new fiancĂ© and, coupled with my PhD, arranging engagement parties and now looking for a wedding venue, I don't think I've ever been so busy! I never wanted my blog to be a chore, as it's something I do for fun and enjoyment, so I've waited until I really wanted to post again rather than forcing it! I hope you don't mind, hello to all of you again, I appreciate you being patient. My posts are back and will be regular from now on! 

On to today's outfit... Pastel coloured jeans are a spring/summer staple for me and these baby pink ones are my favourite at the moment. The Topshop Leigh Jeans come in so many different colours and patterns, and they're so comfortable, I must say I own quite a few of them!! Coloured jeans are easy to wear, especially teamed with a white or a black top (or a combination in this case!). Don't be scared of the colour drawing attention to your legs either, if you're not fond of your thighs like me, as any block colour, light or dark, keeps them looking slim, it's patterns that can make them look bigger! 

Monochrome colours are something that everyone can wear, and they never go out of fashion. This top was a special purchase from Calvin Klein while I was over in the States, but I've seen a similar one in Warehouse this week if you fancy treating yourself! Last but not least, my shoes are from Minnetonka, which I, again, bought in America, but they do sell them over here in Urban Outfitters and other places. They are sooooo comfy! I always have trouble with flat shoes rubbing but these are one pair that don't! 

Does anyone else love coloured jeans? Anyone else got a weakness for Topshop Leigh jeans or Minnetonka shoes?!
