I have an obsession with black and white. When fall and winter comes around, I tend to have a uniform of my best black and white pieces, with a pop of color in the mix. So, imagine my delight when I found out that black and white would be a trend for this fall and winter. This gave me an excuse to go back to the closet (and the thrift store) and mix up some “keyboard fun!”
shirt: Forever 21/ skirt: Doki Geki
I snagged this black sequin shirt and this graphic skirt at Plato’s Closet for only 3 dollars each. I decided to tuck the shirt into the skirt since it was a bit slouchy. I wanted to make sure my waistline was prominent. I love that the skirt is a unique pattern and has pockets! Every dress and skirt should have pockets. For real.
I paired this outfit with some sweet arm candy. The black and white bracelets I got years ago from forever 21, and the sterling silver bracelet was gifted to me recently by a dear bloggy friend.
shoes: Miss Me
These shoes have always been one of my favorite pairs. They are made by Miss Me and are surprisingly comfortable. I love how they tie in the front to give it a 1940s vibe. I’d wear this outfit out on a fall dinner date with my husband or night out with the girls.
When it comes to black and white, there’s always room to add in a little grey. This awesome blazer is from Wallis Fashion. It was gifted to me during an event I attended in chicago a few weeks ago. This is definitely my more expensive piece in this outfit (62 dollars), but it’s well-structured and a neutral color.
To funk up this daytime outfit, I threw on my Biggie Smalls tank and black skinny jeans. It’s edgy, fun and comfortable. The perfect outfit for a day in the city. If you want to be a little less adventurous, a basic white tee would look just as great under the blazer.
Necklace and earrings: Fleurty Girl
This necklace was a great piece I grabbed from Fleurty Girl in New Orleans last weekend. I immediately fell in love with it. The shine of the silver brings a great pop to any outfit. This necklace would look great over a bright colored shirt. The necklace came with the silver-plated earrings i’m wearing, as well.
To keep with the fall trend, I threw on these pointy-toe hunter green and silver pumps from Target. I got these on clearance last winter for 7 bucks. I’m so excited that hunter green is on trend this season; I’ll be wearing this out for the next few months.
