Monochromatic Stripes & Mesh Skirt


Hi Everyone! Hope you're all having a great week so far. Lately, I noticed myself grabbing a lot of black and white pieces. I'm not sure why, but I am going to assume it has to do with me mentally transitioning to the Fall. Black and White is a very classic and modern combination. It can be so chic and stylish, the possibilities are endless with these two basic colors. When pairing black and white, I like to add details to it, for example, a pattern. This striped drape top is great when paired under skirts since the stripes are going diagonal, thus giving an illusion of a slimmer waistline when cinched with a belt. I paired it with this mesh skirt which has the right amount of coverage but still some room for imagination.

Accessories : Belt from C. Wonder (similar here), Necklaces from Gorjana (here) and Nadri (here)
Shoes : Guess (similar here)

Not only do I love the mix between the patent leather and suede of these shoes, I also love the soles. Having a leopard print on your soles is something very different and unique, and adds a nice touch to an all black shoe. This shot was inspired by Kelly from Alterations Needed and Wendy from Wendy's Lookbook.


Thank you so much for reading! =)

  8. Black and white is such a classic color combo. I absolutely love your belt! It's completely different from the typical black belts we see and is a fun focal point.
