Bow Tied

If it’s not bright & cheery, it’s all shades of black and white. The mod, monochromatic combination of wearing head-to-toe black and white (& gray!) is my jam lately. Normally, I opt to pair my black and white pieces with color and prints to add some spice. But lately, I’ve been embracing the tonal dressing trend.

While black & white is everywhere this season, monochromatic looks don’t have to be centered around such basic colors. If you want to be a bit more daring, try pairing your mint pieces with forest green. Or lavender and grape. Or baby pink with fuchsia. You get the idea!

Oh, and PS- My pants aren’t speckled white. It was snowing. Obviously.

How fab are these sandals? Business in the front, party in the back. Needless to say, these will find their way into my suitcase to Vegas tomorrow!
