Today I am participating in another challenge (gotta keep it fun, right?) This one is by a blog called “Everybody, Everywear” and they come up with a style idea and ask people to link up- today’s theme being dress in black and white.
It’s fun because it’s a great way to see a ton of really cool ideas- all in one place!
I actually love black and white- no surprise there, huh? And luckily, I just bought this adorable black and white checked blouse at J Crew.
I had a lot of fun seeing what I could style it with- and came up with a few options.
My first may seem eerily familiar, probably because I wore something similar (here) last week! I’ve paired my dark skinny jeans with this blouse and then threw on a black cashmere v neck sweater. To keep it true to ‘everyday’ style, I’ve got on black ballet flats.
My next look is also good for everyday- this time I tried a long black cardigan- but switched things up a bit by adding a red necklace and red ballet flats. Love that little pop of color!
Last, I decided to try it with a jacket and a scarf. Sometimes I’ll be running errands all day- and will never even take my coat off- so it’s fun to have a cute jacket that is stylish as well as functional. This one is a raincoat- perfect for Seattle- and I got it at JC Penny- seriously! Not sure why I was even in JC Penny! LOL!
