Whiteout



I have been in love with the monochromatic trend since it began, but had yet to attempt it...mainly because I didn't have enough pieces that were the same color to pull it off.  So I decided that before fall is here, I needed to give it a try with all white (which I have plenty of).  I was surprised at how many different combinations I was able to come up with using items in my closet, but this one (with the addition of some metallic accents) was my favorite.





What I'm wearing:
H&M blazer (similar), Candies top (last seen here; on sale here), Mossimo jeans (similar), Guess pumps (on sale here), Expressions NYC clutch (via TJ Maxx), Fossil watch (here), Vintage bracelets, Dockers aviators (similar), Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Coral Berry

You look great, Kim! I've had a pair of Topshop silver loafers bumping around in my closet for the past few months (with not a clue on what to pair them with)--I think you've just given me a few ideas, woohoo.
