Outfit: Embellished Black & White

It was really hard not to add some color to my outfit. You guys know that almost all my outfits contain color, so wearing nothing but black and white is not the norm for me. But I have to say, I love it! It's good to change it up and this outfit feels fresh and sophisticated. Besides, I don't think this outfit even needs any color because of the cute crochet collar, the little bow, the embellished shoulders, and the giant buttons on my heels. 

Can I just say how happy I am I got this sweater? I almost passed it up when I went shopping with my friend Avra. At $70, it's a lot more than I usually spend on one item, but it fits so perfectly and I know I can wear it in so many ways, so I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be on sale for $50. Still a lot, but much better. I think the universe was telling me to get it!

Also, I'm not a pro at wearing heels by any means, but these mary jane pumps are so comfortable. It probably has something to do with the fact that the heel is only 3/4". Perfect for a girl who prefers flats like me. 
Sweater: American Eagle | Top: LC Lauren Conrad | Jeans: Hollister | Shoes: Payless 


Do you have any items you're happy you didn't pass up?

  1. Those mary janes look super cute (and bonus for being comfortable!). It's funny how it's hard for you to go color-less and here I am pulling out black and white on a regular basis xD Color scares me.

  10. Neutrals look lovely on you! I especially love your sweater - sometimes you just have to splurge on that one great piece because you never know when something as wonderful will come along again. And aren't Payless shoes the most comfortable ever? I'm always blown away by how easy their heels are to wear.

  19. Perfect way to put it! I feel naked without color, but I would like to try wearing more black and white outfits now!

  20. Don't be scared! For me, the key is sticking with one pop of color or mixing two complimentary colors, like purple and blue. You can do it!
