Monochromatic and Passion For Fashion Link Up

A little monochromatic number for you today folks. As much as i love colour, i do also love a simple black and white combo. Simple and effective i find. This purdy heart skirt was Erica's choice from F&F clothing for our #Frockswap, she styled it beautifully here, and i can safely say that this skirt is so so Erica. Me though? well i haven't worn hearts in a while and skater skirts feel a little on the unflattering side for me (they hug my mum-tum in all the wrong places, blah!!), but i did actually like Erica's skirt. It was comfy and like nothing else i own, which is always so refreshing, and being refreshed with your wardrobe choices is always a good thing i think. When this arrives safely back to erica i can see it surely becoming a staple for her, but for now on to Debbie and Donna it shall go, and i cant wait to see their take on it!

Here's how the Beauty herself styled it!

Skirt: Erica's c/o f&f
Jacket: f&f from (last year)
Tee: Primark
Necklace: River Island
Hat & Boots: New Look

  1. I'm with ya- I'm a color lover that's been digging some black and white lately. Love how you both styled it in your own way- swapping is so fun! :)

  2. There's a certain elegance in simplicity. I own this skirt and it is a beauty, although I know what you mean about the hips! You look sleek and as glossy as you always do xx

  3. Erika does rally suit that skirt but I love your interpretation of it. On you it takes on a completely different persona that is really interesting when combined with a biker jacket. I need more friends with which to swap clothes!!

  4. I have a soft spot for monochrome, always, so I really like this look on you. Although I do like Erika's use of mint with that skirt too! Both great ways of styling it. P x

  5. I love monochrom and dots and hats!!! Fabulous outfit!

    1. I mean hearts looking like dots on cell phone screen :-)

  6. What mum tum? You look great. And so does Erica! ~Ann

  7. LOVE your monochromatic styling of this skirt and the way you toughened up a heart print. Also love the concept of taking one item and passing it around to various bloggers to see it styled in different ways.

  8. It is a very cute skirt! You styled it well. I actually didn't realize it was a heart print in the first picture. I like it!

  9. Very nicely done, Rachel. You have very shapely legs. {does that sound weird coming from me?} Hope not. Think of it as a talent scout or professional model scout stating a fact! lol ♥

  10. love that skirt, very cute print x

  11. Gorgeous as usual. Lately I am just floored by how beautifully stylish and absolutely put-together you look in every. single. post.
    I'm so sorry I haven't been around much to comment (and let's not even mention how I haven't emailed in forever). I've been too neglectful of the blogging world lately... but I'm working on changing that. :) Expect to see me around here (and maybe an email to your inbox) more often. ♥

  12. I love your necklace and boots! Great outfit!


  13. I love this outfit, that skirt is lovely and very flattering on you!
