Black and white


"Okay. What can I say about this outfit except it was an absolute hit - praise God! If you're a regular reader then you know black and white is my favorite color combo. So I was very excited to play around with different prints. It wasn't difficult to accomplish considering I have a lot of options in black and white.

What I love most about this outfit is the neck scarf. I inherited this scarf from my sister many years ago during her law school days. My sister practices law in Nigeria and lawyers or "would be" lawyers are required to wear black/white so she had a lot of items in black and white. I was fascinated by the scarf then (over 10 years ago) but I surprisingly never had the chance to wear it until now. I'm just glad that I kept it all these years. Doesn't it go well with my top and skirt?

Take a risk and play around with different prints from your closet. It's a lot of fun. Keep my rule in mind - prints with similar colors work well together."

Love, love, love! Has anyone else tied a scarf under the collar of their dress shirt before? I haven't and I'm definitely giving it a go very soon! #trendalert!!
