OOTD: 50 shades of black and white
I love black and white when it comes to clothes. I know those colors can sometimes seem too safe, or even boring, but they’re also super versatile and universally flattering. For today’s outfit, there are no other colors, just black and white in various textures and patterns.
I don’t like shopping at Zara. There, I said it. For me their pieces are overpriced, the stores are always crowded, and most of the pieces are just blah at best. However, every once in a while I do see something I really like, but I still can’t justify paying $50+ for fast fashion. Luckily I was able to find this cute blouse for just $10 at Reddz, awesomeness!
I’ve been wearing A-line skirts more often lately, because I find them to be more weekend-appropriate than pencil skirts. However, I could easily swap skirts and I would have a look that is business casual, thanks to the neutral colors of the other pieces.
When it comes to putting together my outfits, I always mix high-end and low-end pieces, because seriously, who could afford an entire closet of designer items? For me the items I like to splurge on are bags and shoes, because a quality bag and a nice pair of heels can make even jeans and a white tee look amazing. I also have this obsession with designer sunnies, but seriously, you can find some pretty cute ones for less than $30 at Marshall’s. Just saying!
