OOTD : Black and White with a Little Red


I'm still confused as to why black and white is a trend this spring but I've decided to put together a black and white outfit anyways. I think black and white fits perfectly into every season :] 

I went with a printed, Pairs themed, white, knee length skirt with a loose, button down, blouse tucked in. I kept the sleeves down and unbuttoned giving the outfit some pizzazz with a little flare. I put on a basic leather wrap belt and knotted it to the side. I like to add a belt if I wear a skirt higher on the waist. Plus, the belt helped cinch everything in. Since I love red with black and white, I opted for a pair of shiny red flats, red dangle earrings, and a red leather bracelet to add some color. 





Shirt is from a.n.a. at JCPenney. Bought for 18.00 USD. Find it here at JCPenney.com.
I bought 2 of these shirts because they are so comfy, stylish, and great for the work place!  I want to get more. They offer some beautiful colors as well.

Skirt I've had since at least high school.
Belt and bracelet are from the Italian markets.
Earrings are handmade from an artist in Prague on the Charles Bridge. Artists line the bridge with beautiful work so if your ever visiting Prague make sure to stop by the stands on the Charles Bridge. I bought so much jewelry there!

Red flats are from target. Retails for 14.99 USD. Find them here at Target.com. I honestly do not recommend these. I had to hot glue felt around the heels (which helps tremendously) because the material is so hard and sharp.These are super cute but were quite painful to wear!



Here's a look of the outfit being worn :

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Questions, comments, and advice is very welcome!

  18. Yeah, I think black and white is more of a color combo that has been classic throughout all of time than a 'spring trend'. The print of the skirt is so unique, I love it!
