KJ by Kirrily Johnston drape dress (similar), Zara jacket (love this affordable version, or more luxe Richard Nicoll bomber), Givenchy sequinned heels (similar style here and here), Proenza Schouler PS11 satchel

Perhaps predictably, the last four weeks have been a challenge of sorts in manipulating the colours black and white into something new upon awaking each morning. My favourite combination? This quirky take on the LBD and a subtly patterned collarless jacket. There’s something so striking, in that I can’t put my finger on it way, about an asymmetrical hemline which falls into place just so. With the next week predicted to be dominated by gloomy skies and the pitter patter of rain, it’s an easy combination that you might just see me repeating.

PS. Have you been taking advantage of the Net-a-Porter US sale yet? With up to 70% off I’m itching to make those few purchases I’ve been (un)successfully trying to convince myself I don’t need..

Get the look:

    The hemline on your dress is such a special little feature! I love your black and white looks and revamping the colours into new looks. I wear a lot of black and white and often struggle for inspiration so these posts have really invigorated my outlook.

    This is a beautiful location to shoot such a lovely feminine outfit – the pastels compliment it well!

    Looking very elegant as always, and I’m constantly marveling at how well that PS11 goes with anything – so tempted haha!

    Love how you paired the dress with the jacket and gold heels. Do you know that out of all the blogs I read – you have possibly the best selection around (in my eyes and according to my taste). You are the only person that makes me go and hunt down gold sparkly shoes which I have absolutely no use for.

      Sue that is a huge compliment, thank you! As for sparkly shoes, there’s always a use for them. I’d wear them grocery shopping but then in Wellington, I may look a *tad* overdressed LOL
