Nothing beats a classic black and white outfit! This week Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays, and I, weeerrkked black and white. Please check out Keren’s blog to get the details about her AWESOME black and white blazer and leather skirt. One word for her outfit – FIERCE!
My outfit features this gorgeous black and white printed pencil skirt from Boohoo. You should already know that this skirt was purchased at a very thrifty price of $9.99 due to an awesome clearance sale. I absolutely love the fit, and of course the design on the front of the skirt. Simply elegant, classy and chic.
Now, an honest moment but also a teaching moment about knowing how to wear clothes to hide your imperfections. After two little ones, although to be honest, the youngest is 3, I still have not lost all of the baby pooch. If you know what I am talking about, then you know that it can sometimes be very hard to rock your favorite pieces without feeling a little subconscious. To the rescue – a peplum shirt! Perfect shirt that beautifully hides imperfections in the midsection.
I thrifted this fabulous black BCBG peplum shirt from City Digz, a thrift store in San Diego, for $2.99. Check out the high-low detail in the shirt and the exposed back zipper. You have to agree with me that this was a great score!
Yes I know it’s past Labor day and I am wearing white shoes. However, when you live in a city where the average temperature in October is in the 80’s, white simply is a must to complete this outfit. I thrifted these BCBG heels from Bad Madge & Company vintage store for $11.00. I love how they add the class to this outfit. To finish the look, I added a white necklace and bracelet purchased from Charming Charlie for $4.00 and $2.00. Of course with an outfit such as this one, a clutch simply was no brainer. This black Steve Madden clutch was a steal at $2.00 from a DC Goodwill.
