Black and White for Spring


Sleek and sophisticated monochrome is still a favorite of mine. Life may not be black and white, but I’m a different story. This season, I’ve been experimenting a lot — from colorful designs, fun prints to this classic color combo to offer a fresh take on my personal favorite.

I love the fact that wearing black and white comforts me, it’s almost like a haven on days where I feel uninspired and tired. Yes, I even have days where I feel down. I often remind people that social media is not my real life, and that behind each beautiful curated photograph is a person with emotions and feelings. People tend to forget that. Nothing is always black and white, just as the saying goes.

    This is such a lovely pairing, Vanessa! I adore that skirt and those sunnies especially! I know, sometimes it can be so easy to forget that not everything we see in photos that SEEM reflect a “perfect” life is actually a true depiction. We ALL have our ups and downs and I agree, black and white is definitely a go-to when I don’t feel really feel inspired. It’s so easy, yet always polished! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have an amazing weekend ahead, love you!

    Sooo chic, Vanessa! I love the black and white look. Gorgeous pics! Have a great weekend!:)

    Yeah social can sometimes lead us to think that everyone has everything planned out and perfect. It’s hardly ever the case. B&W is always a great combo!

    Black and white are staples for me. They work with everything, or together for a stunning “colorless” look like yours. They always leave an impression of strength and elegance.

    Looking so classic and chic in this black and white outfit! I love your skirt and the asymmetrical detail, such a beautiful look. I agree we all have our ups and downs and sometimes social media can make our lives seem like they are perfect. I often take comfort in black and white, it’s always makes me polished and put together.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    You look amazing Vanessa! I love everything about this monochrome look and the asymmetric skirt is gorgeous.
    I think social media can make our lives look perfect and people easily forget that we are real people with real feelings. I hope you have a lovely and happy weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    I absolutely adore this outfit. You don’t look one bit uninspired and I am even inspired by this look.

  20. May 22, 2016 / 3:01 AM

    Black and white is always a good idea!

  21. May 22, 2016 / 5:50 AM

    I agree that many mistake our social media for being our lives and that is not the case. Holy gorgeous, you look phenomenal, black and white were truly made for you! I love the design of the skirt and the top, so elegant and the shoes add pizzazz……can I have that edgy choker?

  22. May 22, 2016 / 12:39 PM
