The Monochrome ensemble

Hi Beautiful Readers,

This sudden onset of Winter has also brought along the most disastrous flu bug I have experienced. I’m usually prepared, pumping the kids (actually the entire family) with supplements, making sure they eat healthy and so on and so on… It seems that Winter could not wait for me this year and arrived on my doorstep bearing rain, wind and HAIL! (And the yucky flu bug along with it!) 

I really don’t mind Winter, the layers of clothing to hide the evils, the hot drinks and cuddles under the covers… Sigh… It sounds so idyllic, and then I realise that I’m actually the Mum. Which in reality means stolen moments for myself in between the errands, cooking, supervising studies and tutoring! Yes, that sounds more like it… and the former is something I can only aspire to (teehee).

Today’s outfit is a monochrome look I wore when the sun was out, although it was still quite chilly. I pared an embellished sweat top with my slouchy tuxedo pants and threw on a blazer for added warmth. I love colour, and whilst I aimed to do a complete monochrome look, the sunny day inspired me to add the bright heels and olive clutch.

My outfit:

Hilton Weiner Blazer
Forever New Slouchy tuxedo pants
PicknPay embellished sweat top
Heels own import
Makoya Brands clutch
Earrings old
Guess bracelet (old)
Polka Dot scarf (old)

Caio for now, 
RuBe xoxo


  1. Those shoes are fabulous on you, Rushda! Wish I could be so brave... I have to wear socks or I'll die from the cold xoxo

    1. Hehe thanks R! I'm also getting to the point where it really doesn't matter how much I love my heels, I need socks and boots!

  2. Still manage to look super put-together in spite of all those errands and Mom-work! Lovely as always :)
