Gone Graphic



I don't know what it is that has me completely drawn to black & white pieces this season, but I can't seem to get enough (see the proof here and here).  Maybe it's because they're so easy to contrast against bold bright hues, but look equally as striking when the graphic theme is kept throughout an ensemble.  Versatile pieces like this are great wardrobe extenders because you can remix them in so many different ways. {Love this glossy teal wristlet I'm carrying?  Check back tomorrow for an amazing new giveaway!}





What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 blouse (here), Thrifted shorts (last seen here; similar), JW Anderson for ALDO Rise pumps (on sale here), c/o Stephanie Johnson wristlet (here), Vintage rings, Target sunnies (similar), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Adore, Nails: Sally Hansen Summer Plum

*Check out another outfit post of mine over on the Poshlocket Blog today!

i love your outfits, but honestly, i have the biggest skin envy! your skin is flawless! i'm sure it's naturally perfect skin, but i would love some makeup tips!

Kimberly said...

Emily, thank you so much!! My skin is far from perfect - but I swear by CeraVe moisturizer (my dermatologist got me hooked on it) and I use Arbonne for everything else (their products are all-natural and nothing short of amazing)! Hope that helps :)

xo, Kimberly

The beauty about black and white pieces is also the fact that they look so chic and elegant. They can also easily transcend from summer to fall.

I'm a total monochrome gal but this is a fabulous look. If I saw you walking down the street I would look twice because that is a very chic combination of black and white and prints indeed. So great to see you in something a little different but still striking!
