An Aztec Monochrome Grunge Look

Top: Primark | Jeans: Zara | Shoes: Newlook
I wouldn't say that monochrome is my go to outfit but it is certainly a fail safe low effort option. On Sunday the boyfriend and I went to Dundee for some lunch and a spot of shopping. He is more than used to seeing me in girly florals and dresses but sometimes I feel like changing things up a little. These skinny jeans are a zara basic and I love them- feel like I'm still getting used to the low rise though. I also get lots of compliments on my aztec top which I picked up in the mens section of primark for just £4! Sadly they don't have it anymore but they are always good for usual patterns.

Scott took me out for the DCA's restaurant the jute cafe bar- a place that is a definite family favourite but he had never been. My burger with mozzarella and a sweet pepper relish was delicious. Anything with brioche and I'm sold! Scott also had brioche but with pork and halloumi which he seemed to enjoy. My quest for some nice basic white tops failed miserably! I'm being so hard to please so if anyone know where you can get white/cream vest tops with a silky feel please let me know. I did get some other things which you can see in my week in pictures post.   

I hope everyone is having a good week- I'm excited for the weekend already!!
