I bought this super lightweight and snuggly soft gray sleeveless turtleneck last summer and wore it only once.  That made me sad.  I love it, but once June hits in Virginia it is straight up straps and tanks. This year I was determined to break it out early and find new ways to style it.  Enter my new white ankle pants from Old Navy. With white pants, both pieces can shine. It is basic but it works for a variety of occasions depending on what shoes or accessories you pair them with.  I wanted to play down the shoes but add a small amount of color and the necklace I received at Christmas … [Read more...]

It’s a Wrap Dress

So Black and White

This winter has brought me some new challenges with work. All of which I welcome, unless they are weather-related, ahem. *STOP WITH THE SNOW ALREADY* With those new endeavors comes more work wear, and you know I like my minimalist black and white palette and it so black and white. As I branch out so must my clothes. The budget for these clothes just has to follow, right? Not that I want to get all Pantone'd up or anything but I need to support my habit. I wish I could say I'm as black and white as my clothing style, but that is just not the case. I had planned on wearing this fabulously thick, with pockets (LOVE), fit and flare dress I found at Kohl's a few years ago.  Then #snowzilla2016 happened.  The meeting was rescheduled for this week.  Just like that, five inches of snow and … [Read more...]
