A few months ago I realized that my closet was seriously lacking a good selection of silky blouses so I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect colors, prints, patterns, and most importantly, fits. I was absolutely smitten when I found this designer black and white striped blouse at T.J. Maxx. I knew it would be the perfect shirt to mix and match with all of the other prints in my wardrobe.
On the topic of black and white, I’m going to need to have a little intervention before too long. Lately, all of my outfits have been black and white and neutral all over! Can’t stop, won’t stop with the classic combo. It’s just too easy. No matching or color coordinating needed! What can I say, I can be a bit lazy in the AM hours. I’m working on becoming more of a morning person, but that’s a whole different ballgame.
To try to inject some color into my monochromatic looks, I’ve been reaching for red. I love the Parisian feel of a black, white, and red ensemble. Even if it’s just a bold red lip! Très chic. Speaking of red lip, I found this fabulous shade at T.J. Maxx, too!
Remember how I gushed about my other obsession this fall, leather? Well, when I saw this absolutely fabulous leather-sleeved jacket, I snatched it up without thinking twice! It mixes black & white, red, and leather. I mean, I just couldn’t say no! The quality of both the tweed and leather is amazing. Plus, the price was almost too good to be true. That’s what I call a win on each and every single level!
