Bright colors will always be my jam, but lately, I’ve been gravitating more towards black and white.  The combo is effortlessly sophisticated.  It’s chic on its own, or the perfect canvas for a pop of color (see yesterday’s outfit for proof).  Check out a few of my favorite black and white pieces and let me know how you style up the color duo.

fall essentials: moody florals.

Last weekend, I stored away most of my bright summer pieces while pondering how I could continue to incorporate my favorite prints through the rest of the year.  While my fall outfits will likely involve faux leather or leopard, floral prints will still stake a claim in this season’s wardrobe.  The difference: I’m reaching for moodier florals in darker colors and edgier details.  Check out a few of my favorite fall florals and let me know what you think of these transitional pieces.
