'Black White, Foul Fair'


I really try to stay away from black and white outfits solely because I wore the combo to death (along with all shades of grey) back in the day.  Now, I really try to embrace colors but every now and then, I dapple in a little black and white.  Oh, and I threw in the scarf for a little bit of punch.
 











This laugh is pretty much what I did when I got off the plane from heat and humidity of Miami and was hit with a blast of cold NY wind!  Couldn't freakin believe it!!  At the risk of sounding redundant, CAN WINTER PULEASE GO AWAY!!!

What is the first thing you guys are going to do when the weather warms up?

Would like to say a HUGE thank you to a new found blogger Alex from Of Mice and Minutiae (isn't that the best blog title?)  Anyhoo, she nominated me for the Stylish Blogger Award.  Her style is super quirky, super funky and just super cool!  So ladies check her out and please show her some love if you're not already following her!

What I'm Wearing:
Jacket:  ArdenB
Tweed Skirt:  Gap
Scarf:  Gucci (gifted)
Polka Dot Tights: Bloomingdales
Shoes:  Kenneth Cole
Sunspecs:  Vintage YSLPin It

  7. awww, that made my heart so happy, thanks!

    This outfit is stunning! I love the vintage touches like the 60's collar on the jacket, the cat eye glasses and the scarf, then you take it and make it completely modern and your own. This is a seriously inspiring outfit :) I hope your spring comes soon!
