Nod to Mod

I apologize for being MIA the last several days.  Too much going on and not enough time!!!

I’ve got several ideas planned for spring posts coming within the next month or two, but right now, I’m feeling a little uninspired in the fashion department.  It’s still cold, and I am feeling bored with all my clothes right now (and yes, I’m being incredibly whiny and self-indulgent).  

Pants:  The Limited
Blouse:  The Limited (Available here)

With work extra busy and life on overdrive in many ways, I find myself reaching for what is easy – which for me is black pants, black pants, and more black pants.  You’ll be seeing a lot of them over the next few weeks because, well, that is what I’ve been wearing! 😀

Today’s look plays with my favorite color combo of black and white.  The stripes feel on-trend for spring as graphic black and white continues to be a major concept on spring runways.  I think it’s time to stop calling this look a trend – seriously has it ever really gone out of style?

I like this look because it feels a little 60s mod while still resonating in 2014.

Blazer:  The Limited (Available here)
Boots:  Target (Available here)
Purse:  The Limited
Necklace:  The Limited (No longer available on-line; see here)

For work, I used the larger white bag, but I also thought it would be fun to play with graphics by adding a polka dot clutch.

What trends or styles are you looking forward to for spring?  Do you ever get in fashion ruts??

  1. Cassandra, I saw this one on Facebook and liked your style. I am not too crazy over the whole alternating black and white trend, but I do think you've sported it well, not to mention looking amazing all the while. Fabulous style!

  2. This is an AMAZING outfit! It really pops, and either bag looks great. It cheered up my day just to see such great clothes! (on a great person, of course 🙂

  3. Oh man I get in fashion ruts all the time, when I get into these ruts i usually grab my comfortable clothes. But I love the graphic black and white and the clutch really does make the outfit pop.
