Black and White

Photobucket

As you have probably guessed, I'm all about color. It's not too often I go with neutrals, especially black and white! But I just got this sweet little 50s blouse, and after days of soaking and getting stains out, it's ready to wear all summer. Or spring with a cardigan, it has a perfect collar!

This cardigan is one I've had for ages, I think it's been worn more with jeans and converse in high school than any dresses or skirts.

You are so pretty, Solanah! (Awesome name, by the way). That cardi is fantastic. I don't have a Buffalo Exchange by me (I live in MO) so I'm a tad envious you get to shop there. ;)

I'm obsessed with vintage style, but I can't pull it off very well. So I'm always mesmerized when I come across fashionistas like you who do it so effortlessly. Sigh.

You look cute as a button :) B&W does look great on you, can't believe it took a day of soaking to get rid of stains. You sure are persistent

Great outfit :)

Black and white though this outfit may be, there is absolutely nothing dull about it. From the striped shirt to the blouse's ruffles, the textures and varying fabrics at work here ensure this outfit shines with its own pop of vibrant style.


Wishing you a gorgeous Friday,
♥ Jessica

I love your usual colourful look but this monochrome outfit is stunning too!
I just spent and evening removing the ruffles from a thrifted blouse, but now you got me wondering if I should sew some more on!!

Beautiful as always! :) I love how unexpected this outfit is for you, and yet it's also totally "Solanah". The skirt is so pretty!

I probably have too much black in my wardrobe but I can't help it! I love wearing black and white, black and red, and black and yellow. :)

Your outfit is perfect and the cardigan is perfect with your blouse.

I love the blouse! And the cardigan is supercute....You look very beautiful! Very inspiring, I too use a lot of color but this made me want more neutral tones in my warderobe, I shall start looking at more blacks and whites.... :)

I usually hate 'ruffles' (is that how it's called in English? Those thingies on your blouse), but they actually look really good on you! I love the cardigan! :)
