Black & White







Woohoo, it’s Friday, and S H O C K E R! No bold colors today!

Today I felt like wearing a simple & classic look (and yes, this might be weather related!). Sometimes, wearing black and white just feels necessary. Every time I wear black I instantly feel ‘clean’, and – call me crazy one this one – ‘uncluttered’. Effortlessly chic. Well put together.

Always the overdresser, my sense of minimalism here actually isn’t so minimal — since it includes some leopard print (I just wanted to add some extra contrast). And guess what?! I wore this ensemble to the office, and let me tell you: This maxi skirt is perfect for long stretches at your desk.

As always, thanks for reading & have a relaxing weekend! See you back here on Monday!

    I love the detailing on the jacket and that skirt is so pretty! That leopard scarf is the perfect touch!

    Loooooove that jacket!!
    And yes, I’m a firm believer that maxis skirts and dresses can indeed be worn in the winter.

    That tote is so awesome! Absolutely love the monogram!

    You look very chic. I know what you are saying. For some of us who love bold colors and details staying minimal with our outfits is not that easy but I think that is a good thing. I love the addition of leopard scarf to your outfit.

    Love the bag with the skirt and you’re brave to have a cream purse! I am so bad to my purses I throw them around like a sack of potatoes so it’s only black for me! haha

    I LOVE how you styled the maxi skirt here to make it winter-appropriate. If I had this skirt I would have never thought it possible to wear in January but you did it successfully! I am not much of a minimalist either, so to me leopard is “minimal” as well ๐Ÿ™‚ You look beautiful, as always!
