What I Wore: Monki Aoi Dress

Monki Aoi Dress in Black and White with Dr Martens- Call Me Katie - 08

There’s a chill in the air here in London town, so with fall on the way I’ve begun prepping my autumn wardrobe with long sleeves, boots and cosy knits…

Dress: Monki | Scarf: Pieces | Jacket: Bershka, old (similar) | Watch: Casio | Rucksack: Marrakech Market | Shoes: Dr Martens

With autumn on the way, I’ve begun taking my warmer clothes out of storage and buying a few new pieces to breath some new life this season. This outfit is one that I put together for a day out and about (I’m thinking brunch, Brick Lane and lazy afternoon coffees) or a relaxed day in the office. (You know, the ones where you’re catching up on reports, headphones in.)

I love how this dress is oversized and cosy but still flattering on my petite frame, and how versatile it is. Leather jacket, blanket scarf, cropped jumper, boyfriend cardigan or belt at the waistline – all of these accessories would look ace with this style dress. For these pictures I chose to wear the rucksack I bought from the souks in Marrakech to bring a pop of colour to the look, but a sleek black saddle bag or classic handbag would also look nice.

My Dr Marten boots are my go-to boot for rainy days, and autumn in London is always damp so I wanted to make sure the look was just as practical as it is my style. On dryer days I’d be happy to swap the boots for a pair of loafers or even my gold trainers.

Blogger friend Kira snapped these pictures for me a few weeks ago by Bank in Central London.
