White and black

An abstract patterned white and black midi skirt worn with an ivory jumper and white ankle boots. A contemporary look for a woman of any age
After no spend January I was itching to get something new, so here it is, an abstract print midi skirt and baggy white jumper with buttons. Plus my gorgeous Russell & Bromley white boots.

I used to wear a lot of black because it was always so easy;  lately I've worn more colour, but it's nice to come back to black. With this outfit, the white dominates, and gives it a pleasing spring look.  This is the sort of contemporary outfit that can suit a woman of any age.

I layered on a couple of pearl necklaces and was good to go.
