Because usually sometimes I'm lazy and tired. And because sometimes picking out colours before my morning coffee is a bad idea. And because a big white coat reminds me of a marshmallow and marshmallows are delicious.

  1. You look amazing in black and white! i'm so used to seeing you in colourful prints that this monochromatic look is very refreshing.

    And yes, marshmallows are delicious. Especially in hot chocolate.
