Outfit: Black & White

January 21, 2013

This was I-must-get-out-the-door-in-two-seconds (and take these photos before daughter tries to jump in each!). While — as you know I normally gravitate toward a big colorful necklace to punch up a look — this outfit felt most natural without it. I just got this blouse at H&M and it’s a new favorite. Not too baggy, not too tight (replacing an old button down I have just donated since I’m finally being honest that if/when it fits again the fit will be outdated! ) and it’s light-weight for year-round wear. Had it been cooler, I would have thrown on my new leopard coat I’ve been dying to wear and swapped out the heels.

blouse: h&m (similar) || jeans: c/o kardashian kollection via sears style || heels: anne klein (similar, or try this chic flat for under $25!) || bag: forever21 (no longer available but check out this similar, smaller bag for less!) || watch: swatch || bracelets: links via jewelmint & chevron, part of a set of four, c/o lulule (get 25% off entire store thru 1.31.13 with code TAGG!)

    This looks lovely and simple. I think sometimes we can be too overboard with accessories. This is classic, and in ten years you could probably still wear it because nothing will date it.
