It's All Black & White

If I had a quarter for every black & white striped top I own.. I could probably afford a new black & white striped top. It's one of my favorite "go-to" pieces because it's SO versatile. I think this outfit really emphasizes simple, chic, winter dressing.. of course you need to add a coat if you live in a Windy Northern city like me.

This is another outfit inspired by my time spent in France.. simple, feminine, with small details. I love the bow on this skirt because it adds a hint of fun to an otherwise simple staple piece. I paired it with my striped tee, shiny bag, and my favorite knitted cardigan ( I love the way the zig-zag knit pairs with the stripes on my shirt.. it's the inner painter coming out in me.. mixing textures and patterns).

Anyway, I hope you all are keeping chic (and warm) this holiday season! I have so many cute new pieces to put up so thank you all for following up every week!
