it’s not always black and white…



As a big lover of color and prints, I’m surprising myself with being on a black and white kick right now. I’ve been having fun starting with a neutral palette and then jazzing it up with accessories colorful layers. I think that happens more for me in the winter because it’s cool enough for layers, whereas in the summer there isn’t as many options. And I guess stripes count as a pattern so I haven’t totally strayed from my norm :)

Rose Vintage




dress:c/o Rose Gal
hat: ebay
shoes: Jeffrey Campbell (via Last Chance)
necklace: Last Chance
belt: thrifted
tights: super old, maybe F21??

Rose Gal has so many cute printed tops and dresses (and free shipping too!!), making it hard to choose, but I decided to go with something I could remix throughout the winter.


The good thing about most of the people on my shopping list being in Oregon is that I have to plan ahead to get the packages out in time. Today I cleaned the house, my brother in law gets in town tonight, and I can start relaxing and enjoy the festivities. What about you? Do you still have shopping to do or packages to send?

    Im still waiting for three packages, eeek! I might just have to wrap boxes with a single note that says “IOU” in it haha. And it is kind of shocking seeing you in black and white- it’s still an awesome number though ;)

    I still have to shop for my husband. I procrastinate because he’s so hard to shop for, which compounds the issue of being so late, lol. Oh well.

    You look lovely. I like the gold to accent the B&W
