Black and White

There is nothing more simple, timeless and eye appealing than the classic color combination of black and white. An instant chic and a crisp perfectly-polished and put together feeling every time!

Here are some black and white ensembles that make me happy, one of my very own favorite black and white dresses included! Fact: give it to me in a houndstooth or stripe print, sometimes it just looks better in black and white!

So the moral of the story is, black and white sometimes just makes everything look better, period.

  6. Hmm.. it looks like your website didn't update my first comment (it was super long) so I will just summarise what I submitted and say, I'm seriously enjoying your blog.
    I am also an aspiring blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for first-time blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate
