It is no secret that I am addicted to black and white. I will wear white linen shorts and white jeans, but never a white dress and I will wear black dresses, black pants and black tops like they are going out of style. Don’t get me wrong, I love a great white dress, but in the business I am in I don’t really have the opportunity to wear white much and I am okay with that… What really gets under my skin is when someone has the audacity to show up at a wedding in white/cream/off white, basically any shade, pattern, lace and they are not the bride… I always hear the voice of Michelle from Full House saying, “How rude!” Okay, enough of that tangent… back to my fashion obsessions and my latest buys. Don’t be shocked if you see these little numbers pop up in instagram-land a few times this Spring. When I find a favorite and it only comes in one color combo I tend to wear it out… and have been known to have a backup hanging in the closet for when I wear it out.
I obsess over dresses. To me they are simply the easiest piece to throw on and feel put together. Add a cute shoe and fun necklace and you are set to go! While in Miami I discovered this little gem at the local Anthropologie. I had never seen it before in our local store, so I was sure happy to discover this great dress/tunic. I dream of dressing it up with a large colorful statement necklace from JCrew or Banana Republic and I plan on wearing my black Tieks flats for daytime and a cute pair of either round toed pumps in a bold color or a strap-y sandal that has a lot of za za zoo.
These pants- I mean on the hanger not so much- I laughed at the sight of them. My friend took them to the dressing room with her,( also at Anthropologie) and I thought, those aren’t going to be flattering… boy oh boy was I wrong. These pants have just the right amount of spandex or some sort of stretchy material that they have give, enough structure to make them seamlessly go from day to night and enough pattern to make them not just another boring pair of pants. I am sold! Again you can change these pants with just a top from a simple GAP cotton tee to a silk blouse and ta-da! Fancy outfit.
