Totally Black and White..
I’ve been told that I can be a bit black and white and that’s probably fair enough because I know what I like – and what I don’t!!
We’ve had a cold and WINDY snap on the south coast of Australia and so I got out these black, warm wide-legged pants and paired them with a white blouse with a frill down the front.
I’ve had both of these things for years and when I pulled out the blouse it needed a good soak in some nappy san to brighten it up – I was pretty happy with how it came up!
For the Love of Leather!
I don’t know if there’s an age limit for wearing leather, but if there is I’m happy to ignore it because I just love the fit and comfort of leather jackets – they pull an outfit together but don’t appear staid or conservative so they’re a good reflection of me! 😉
I must confess to owning 3 or 4 black leather jackets.
Each one is very different from the other and this one is mid length with a beautiful and flattering cut in the waist.
I also love the substantial zippy detail on this jacket …
Buttons, Braces and Berets!!
I love details – I’ve always been one to notice them and always look for them!!
This outfit boasts cute buttons, pockets on the high-waisted pants and fabby braces:
I added a black beret, medium silver hoop earrings and pointy toed booties and was good to go …
I do love an edgy, feminine look and I dare to be different, so like the other things I wear, it’s not for everyone!!
Thank you so much for joining me in my little corner of the web today!!
I’d love to hear what you think about dressing monochromatically or any number of things in the comments below!!

Now that I come to think about it, I’m pretty black and white too. For me everything is yes or no, no maybes in between.
I loooove this outfit. You look gorgeous!

That’s good to know – we can see shades of grey, sure, but we know what we like and what we don’t like and that’s not a bad thing!!
Thank you so much for your kind comment and I look forward to checking out your blog too!!
Have a great week,

Oh thank you!! We have such mild winters here that it’s all you need and I just love that I can throw it on and run out the door plus it’s a bit edgy, which I like!! Enjoy the rest of your week, Grace and I will enjoy having a look at your blog!! 🧚♀️❤️🙏🏼

I absolutely love this outfit! The frills and the wide legs and the zippy details on your leather jacket! And of course, your beret. The black and white is great especially with your gorgeous red hair. I don’t adhere to any age restrictions either and have about 4 or 5 black leather jackets myself! They are all different and all serve a purpose in my life…for the love of fashion! I adore your sass and edginess!

Thank you so much for your detailed and kind comment, Shelbee!! And yess!! All of our leather jackets do serve a different purpose in our lives!! Here’s to not worrying about age and enjoying a bit of sass and edginess in fashion at any age!!
