This weekend I was looking for a few new bits & pieces when I just so happened to buy a complete outfit from Matalan. I was originally looking for a new pair of white jeans to try a DIY ripped knees look but I ended up just keeping them as they are. Although I anticipate that I'll be doing this later!

For me, white jeans totally scream Summer! They look so effortless and chic no matter what you pair them with. I decided to go for a Monochrome look this weekend and prayed that it wouldn't look 'officey'. Since the look Monochrome is simply the option of two colours, black & white, I've changed things up by adding in a print. This beautiful faux snakeskin cross body really wouldn't look out of place in somewhere like Zara or Topshop so when I found it in a discount retailer like Matalan I was so impressed  & had to add it to my collection. The silver details are something new for me since I'm a gold accessories kinda gal but I'm thinking this might become a regular thing for me over the summer. 

I picked up this black utility blouse too, it's so light & tucks into jeans perfectly! I left the back un-tucked for a more laidback look. Teaming this with simple white sliders kept it relaxed, summery & very comfortable. I was planning on picking up a similar pair from Zara this week which admittedly are a little smarter but this pair are great dupes for a casual weekend. 

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, let me know what you think below!
