As much as I love lots of colour in an outfit, I always find myself wearing a lot of neutrals. As soon as I laid eyes on these shoes from Aldo (heaven, aren’t they?) I knew I wanted to find an outfit with match them and decided to add no colour at all, so went with a two piece leathery skirt and top. I wore this outfit to a dinner last night, but beforehand we stopped at Christopher Newport University in Virginia. I had heard about some of these lavish colleges around the US but had never really witnessed them (apart from Duke University), but this was just breathtaking. It made me actually want to do another degree just so I could live there for a few years!

Gianni Bini Skirt and Top, Aldo Alysa Heel, Aldo Handbag (almost identical here), Chanel Lipstick.

    You were able to walk all evening around campus in those shoes? Kudos to you girl! I think your red lips are the perfect pop of colour for your neutral outfit. You look great!

      I’m terrible at walking around places in heels but luckily we weren’t there for a long time and these shoes are really comfortable!

      Thanks! I thought why not add some colour with the nails and lip colour, I think otherwise it would have been a bit dull :)
