Yes leopard print may be my first love (prostitutes can't even ruin it for me - street walker chic all the way, but I do also have a little bit of a soft spot for monochrome. It's something that never goes out of style and is an easy choice for when you're feeling lazy and can't be bothered to put something together. And Lord knows I am lazy, I should have been a cat - I love napping, being stroked behind the ears and serving up half eaten rodents as gifts to my loved ones. Wait not the last one.

This fabulous monochrome shirt was a Christmas present, but I had never worn it, because I just didn't know how. I thought it would look great with some black shorts, but I didn't have any - I did have some old black jeans from H&M that were way past their prime, so I chopped the legs off them and voila, new black shorts. Sustainable shorts that were free...that one is for you environment.

Sorry about the picture quality, I'm using the bf's camera at the moment and since it is way fancier than mine, I have no idea what I'm doing.
