Monochrome- OOTD

I love dressing monochromatically, I really do. Some people love dressing colourfully but for me, nothing makes me feel more comfortable than wearing a sleek monochromatic outfit, especially when the weather is on the cooler side.

As much as I love the cold (winter coats + hot chocolate = happy Julia) Spring is officially here, so soon enough the sun will probably be beaming and gone will be the days where I can throw on a big jacket and not worry about the fact that I forgot to put deodorant on in the morning...I swear I don't purposely forget but it just happens people.

Currently in Melbourne we're having what can only be described as 'transitional' weather where one day it's steaming hot and the next I'm reaching for a blanket. Thanks Melbourne. 

To combat this, I've been loving wearing lighter pieces like this Zara dress and pairing it with tights and a crisp jacket or coat. The layering is fool proof, if it's cold I just zip up my jacket and if it's hot I can take off the tights. Melbourne weather, consider yourself out-smarted.



What I wore-
Dress: Zara
Coat: Zara
Shoes: H&M
Bag: River Island

  16. This is an amazing outfit on you. The UK is also going through transitional weather, though on the other end of the scale - Autumn is here! I love how the striped dress matches the length of the coat, very stylish :)

    1. I think Melbourne weather and UK weather are actually quite similar, and by that I mean they're both largely unpredictable!
