Black and White


My Threads: Shirt: H&M (similar), Skirt: H&M (similar), Pumps: Target (similar), Clutch: Coach (similar), Belt: Target, Necklace: Francesca's, Bracelet: Macy's, Watch: Michael Kors

I've always liked black and white together. It's just such a classic pairing. So initially, I was pretty excited when the dynamic duo hit the runway this season. 

But then I looked at my closet. In case you're new around these parts, I'm really into color. As in, I only own about five things that are black and/or white. And I can't resist adding a pop of color to a black and white palette! Hence the pink belt. 

So try as a might, I'm not sure I'll be frequenting the black and white trend this year. Not unless some more clothes in the contrasting hues decide to magically appear in my closet. Which I would totally be okay with. (That's a hint for you, magical closet fairy.)

Anyway, I had fun mixing prints for Marion's Trend of the Month link-up! The theme is black in white, in my whole rant wasn't a very helpful clue.

Have you entered the Visa Gift Card Giveaway yet! You should! 

Happy Hump Day!

  7. So, I have the opposite problem: I tend towards black and white with pops of color. As much as I love b&w, I'm trying to inject more color into my wardrobe. Too bad we're probably not the same size! Seriously though, LOVE this look on you!

  12. I've discovered I have a lot of black stuff and that I have a lot of white stuff, but I don't have a lot of black AND white stuff. Now I have a new excuse to go shopping! :)

  13. I love the stripes and polka-dots together and the added pop of color. I think we need to translate the trends into our own personal style and I think you did just that with this outfit.

  21. What a fun outfit. I love the combination of stripes with the polka dots. It's classic colors with a little twist on the classic with the stripes and polka dots.

  22. You are adorable! I found you through Imma Walking Fashion Crime. . .love reading your blog! I was wondering if you designed your blog? If not, who did? I have a client that I'm working with (i draw illustrations) and she wants to use my drawings on her blog. I'm not that skilled in blog design, so I'm trying to find her someone that I think matches both our styles. Let me know-(you can email me:))! Thank you! and Thanks for the fun posts!
