Color Me Not





Lately I’ve been obsessed with clean lines and monochromatic colors. Perhaps it has something to do with our rather crazy summer weather. One day, it’ll be hot and sunny, and then the next day, it’ll be rainy and cold. So, I’m ditching the colors this summer for Black and White. It’s a classic trend that simply never goes out of style, wouldn’t you agree?

Gear up this summer to go sharp with the contrast of the monochrome effect and keep it straight up and to the point!

As always, thanks much for visiting & have a fabulous weekend!

The jeans go very well with the shirt and the shoes are very chic!
