Style File: Black on White

July 19, 2013



I've spent the last two weeks battling yet another horrible cold. That plus the fact my hubby (aka photographer extraordinaire) works long hours during the week means I haven't had many chances to take outfit photos. I really have to hand it to all those veteran fashion bloggers out there. It's no joke documenting these OOTD's!

Scored a couple amazing thrift store goodies these past two weeks, and I'm wearing one of them here. Can you guess what's thrifted?! The pants ;). They were of course, a steal and perfectly over sized for the look I wanted. On the rack, they looked like the bottom half of some sort of unglamorous uniform straight from the  early 90's. However, it's all about the pleated fronts and tapered leg. Rolled the hems up for a casual look and to expose a bit more skin (just an added hint here and there takes an over sized look from dowdy to cool). I've been experimenting with comfortable, voluminous, and exaggerated pieces these days. Love freedom of movement, easy and no-fuss ensembles. I've learned that when it comes to loose-fit anything, keeping the top and bottom monochromatic makes the outfit more flattering. Added the black blazer for contrast (and an added slimming effect) and metallic heels to dress up this pajama-chic look!


Thanks for dropping by! Have a wonderful weekend :)
