I'm totally monochrome obsessed lately. I've always been a huge fan of black and white, but I've taken some detours into colour. I'm just never quite comfortable in colour, know what I mean? I feel like I'm pretending to be someone I'm not. I remember when J.Crew coloured trousers were a big deal a few years back, and a bought a few pairs and never ever wore them. They are still sitting in my closet, just waiting to come back into style, and I don't even think I will wear them when they come back into style...which you know they will eventually. Don't you just hate when that happens? That's why my motto is now to only buy neutrals - because I know they will get worn! Especially sneakers and tees. You can't go wrong with those. I live in t-shirts constantly. As a mama, I worry about wearing any expensive knits or anything like that - because baby food and dog drool are permanent fixtures in my life, and I hate doing laundry. 

And don't underestimate the power of a good watch and some classic jewellery to elevate your outfit. It just puts the finishing touch on a simple look. That reminds me that I really need some beautiful simple necklaces to layer with my tees...just something else to add to the shopping list!
