Graphic Ground



After putting together this post, I was so anxious to see what outfit combinations I could come up with using black & white pieces from my own closet.  I love the mod vibe of this particular pairing, plus the mixed prints & color-blocking create enough visual interest that it only needed one bright bauble to complete the look.





What I'm wearing:
c/o Sheinside blouse (here), J. Crew shirt (similar here or here), The Limited jacket (similar), c/o Paige Denim jeans (here or similar for less here), ALDO heels (similar here or here), Mossimo bag (check your local stores; similar here or here), LOFT bracelet (on sale here), Lips: Maybelline Fifth Ave Fuschia

Love this combo! I actually thought the striped top was a tie at first glance lol. The bag and shoes make it for me though.

Maybe a plain clutch in a bright red or orange or yellow instead of black & white bag? Just a serving suggestion. :)

Black and white has always been my favorite, but in recent years I've been "encouraging" myself to wear more color. But I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that it's "in" for Spring 2013. And this whole outfit is fabulous :) So pulled together!
