Monochromatic Blocking & A Pop of Color

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

For the next week or two, I’ll be wrapping up with some of my recent winter outfits.  I’m hoping that the weather will cooperate, and we will actually have spring weather by then!

Jacket:  Ann Taylor (Available here)
Blouse: The Limited (Available here)

Today, I’m featuring a recent work outfit.  I love
monochromatic black and white outfits, but I also like adding in a pop
of color with shoes or accessories.

Here, an all black top and bottom creates a lengthening line, while the ivory cropped tuxedo jacket adds a bit of contrast.

Pants:  The Limited (Similar here)
Shoes:  Target (Available here)

Green Mary Janes with a black contrast strap add a pop of color. 

The shoes, satchel, and jacket all have color blocking detailing that help tie the look together even more.

Satchel:  Target (Available here)

Are you a fan of adding pops of color to neutral looks?

  4. I rather love that bag! It's from Target?!? I haven't been over there since the leaked debit card info, but maybe I should give them another try…

  5. I do love black and white outfits and i'm still loving that blazer and the bag really matches the black and white of the outfit. And the pop of green from the shoes are subtle but still a great pop of color.
