Friday Fashion – Monochrome + Stripes

First of all I need to apologise as there are no pictures of Clem this week. Well at least not in the outfits that I have picked for this week. I will try and get her in at least one of the outfits over the weekend and add it in. So I’m sure by now that everyone knows my love for stripes, monochrome clothing and H&M so I’ve put all 3 together in one post! I popped into our local H&M the other day to get some leggings for myself and ended up buying Clem a few little bits. I’ve noticed in the last week that all her trousers seem to be halfway up her legs. I’m not sure if I’ve shrunk them in the wash or if she has suddenly grown a few inches! I love the 3 for 2 offer that they do on the basics, so I picked up a few pairs of leggings, some long-sleeved tops and a couple of dresses.

The hi-tops were a christmas present so I have no idea where they are from or how much they were. Both of these outfits are perfect for the mornings when Clem goes to nursery. She always seems to come home covered in paint/food/mud or something else so dark colours are ideal for that. I could also dress Clem up as Beetlejuice if I put the stripe top and leggings together but I’m not sure if I can bring myself to do that. I have to apologise as I completely forgot to comment on posts last weekend. Clem was ill and I didn’t spend a lot of time online and by the time I remembered it was the middle of the week and forgot again! I really should get on with getting organised!!

    Oooooo I do like a bit of monochrome magic! In all fairness my mummy can never pin me down to get a ‘fashion blogger’ photo of me! So we always do round-ups and wish lists X you’ve picked a great selection! #WeekendStyleTots x

    Loving the monochrome and especially those high tops! Fabulous. I used to love these types of outfits for my daughter when she was a toddler but everyone looked at me like I was mad! #WeekendTotStyle

    They are both fab outfits, I can picture Clem in them and I’m sure they looked fab on her! I need a trip to H&M again to get ready for the summer, although i’m sure hubby and his bank card will be crying at the thought haha! Thank you for sharing #WeekendTotStyle

    Oooh I need to get myself to H&M stat. How awesome are these little outfits. I bloody love a stripe and the fact it’s Black and White just makes it all the better 🙂 Those hi-tops are really cool and finish the outfit off really well. Thanks so much for linking up with us and hope you’re having a good weekend 🙂 #weekendtotstyle
