A Week in Black & White

What started as a complete accident, quickly turned into a fashion game for me last week. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I inadvertently put together combinations of black and white for my outfits. When I realized Wednesday morning that I had 'done it again,' I decided I needed to carry the trend through the week!

I can't tell you how fun it was to dress with a certain color combination in mind everyday. I'm a neutral girl in the winter anyway, so black and white was quite a fun combo for my first little fashion experiment like this.

Here are my outfits from last week:


(Monday: Black three-quarter sleeved dress trimmed in winter white with large buttons, black tights, and black Isaac Mizrahi for Target flats)


(Tuesday: Black pants, Karen Kane floral printed tie-at-waist silk blouse, a $20 TJ Maxx find black & white sweater, red patent pointy flats; Jewelry: Tiffany's)


(Wednesday: Mossimo silk spotted dress over Target polka dot ruffled blouse, black tights, black flats with flower embellishment; Jewelry: Tiffany's, boutique finds)


(Thursday: Black dress, Michael Kors stripe sweater with rhinestone button detail, black chunky sweater on top, black leggings, and black flats with flower embellishment; Jewelry: Tiffany's, Target, mark by Avon)


(Friday: Old Target sweater dress, black Karen Kane infinity scarf, black tights, black Steve Madden boots; Jewelry: Tiffany's, Pandora, boutique finds)

Before you ask, no I'm not doing this experiment this week too. However, I recommend trying it! Your mind starts to sort through your clothes in a whole new way. You'll be digging out things you forgot you had!

Happy Monday, friends!

So cute, Julie ... love all of your instagram photos ... do you have to have an i-phone? I have a blackberry but am getting an i-phone after the beginning of the year ;) Hope you have a very Merry Christmas, sweets! xoxo

Not all accidents are bad, obviously. I think Tuesday's the winner.
