Black and white




I've been in a neutral mood lately (colorwise), wearing lots of black, white, and brown. Also red, because for some reason to me red is a neutral ;)

This weekend consisted of cleaning house, Twin Peaks, hanging out with Twila Jean, knitting a sock (or trying to anyway), and putting away wooly winter coats. How was your weekend lovelies?

Those tights are great!
I've been really into grey lately. I like the idea of multiple shades of grey worn together with one bright burst of color.

Gorgeous outfit! That skirt is fantastic.

My weekend was quite nice. I got to spend it with my boyfriend and we finally decided that after three months we in an honest-to-goodness relationship. :-)

Red is definitely a neutral. ;)

I love the little white socks over the black tights. What a sweet and dainty look! I don't think there's a day where you aren't fabulous. ^_^

Fabulous! I have those tights in gray :o)

oh! these tights are to die for! ♥

What a great application of black and white. Your little white cami peeking through your black sweater is so nicely reinforced with your white anklets. And I love the look of thin white anklets over dark tights. Did you add the seam on your tights?

Solanah said...

Amy-Mills, no they came that way! But I was dumb and only bought one pair of black and one of brown, even though they were on sale for $4. Should have bought them all :)

Stunning, simply stunning!!!!!!

Love the way you put together this outfit.


Those tights are way to cute and that vintage skirt is to die for.

Lovely look one of my favorites by far.

I have a soft spot for black and white outfits; I pretty much wore nothing but (with a few dollops of red for good measure) for an entire semester. ;) I think doing a neutral outfit forces one to think more about line and textures, which is always a fun exercise!

I love this outfit from head to toe--especially that skirt. The front pleats/arrowheads are amazing!

I'm certainly not putting away my wintercoats ... It's minus 6°C again in Belgium!
And white, black and red is a faboulous combination.
