The Black and White Factor

Summer is almost over, so why not try to get as much wear out of your bright ensembles while you still can?

For my most recent hot weather business affair, I decided to throw on some cool fabrics and some patent leather. Of course black and white is a staple for the summer months, a color blend that I love. So sure, I want to get one last wear.

I found this crop jacket for only $12.00. The pearl and onyx necklace is great to pull together my two contrasting colors.

The white pencil skirt, in my favorite silhouette, is just what I need to complete the attire.

I accented the look with a Neiman Marcus purse that I found for only $24.00 at a consignment shop. It came with its own storage bag, so you know it wasn’t cheap.

I haven’t worn these patent leather shoes since last year. They are a classic slingback pump, and for years to come I will be using tIMG_1735hem to add even more style to the look. Remember what we say around here.

Take that strand of pearls and double it to make a choker

Style is not a Price!

What’s great is that you can wear Black and white in the fall and winter; just opt for the heavier fabrics.
