Black & White Fashion Inspiration

dec 03 collage{Some serious layering going on in this look from 2012}

I’ve been struggling a little lately when pulling outfits together in the morning, and resorting to jeans and a tee or sweatshirt most of the time. In an effort to pull myself out of my ‘slump’ I decided to go through some of my old photos from the outfit blogging days. {Side note:  I have a A LOT of pictures of myself!}

It occurred to me while checking myself out that some of you might be looking for a little inspiration, so I thought I’d share! I totally forgot how much I love pairing black and white polka dots with black and white stripes until I saw these pics. I don’t have this shirt anymore, but I’m going to go look for something similar this weekend.
dec 03 repeatIMG_6394 as Smart Object-1 copyI wore this black and white shirt with jeans and formal skirts and pants. It really was a workhorse in my closet, I can’t believe I purged it and never replaced it. Lesson learned!sept 7 collageHope you all liked this blast from the past! If you’d like to see more round-ups with outfit photos let me know! I don’t really have time to take new photos regularly, but I can dig up some from the archives and try to round up trends and create some more inspiration posts.

    Thanks for the comment, it made my morning:) I was trying to find my fave one and I think it might be the Pied Piper, the dresses are to die for and the room? Sigh…joker suit

    Cute clothes! And what great deals!

    If only I could remember to do this–we’re just now running out of hand-me-downs for our 4-year old, so I need to get it in gear!yoga shorts

    Awesome! I love hearing about great deals that others have found!!!

    We live overseas so have to buy lots of clothes at a time, which means lots of out-of-season shopping, so lots of discounts and savings!!!

    One helpful tip for you… I found some adorable onesie-type shirts at Children’s Place in size 3 for my daughter several years ago, at about $2 each I couldn’t pass up the deal, and bought several in different colors. Not such a good idea. I LOVED the onesie-type shirts at a younger age, loved that they stayed tucked in and all that. But as the kid gets older? Not a good idea as they start potty training, etc! I ended up cutting them straight across and making into regular shirts, as I couldn’t stand having to do up the snaps on my 3-year-old!Matterhorn

    Fantastic! And you are looking great in them. I think I will need to share this with my wife too. She has been having issues with styling out herself using just the clothes in her closet. She will surely love this.fashion

    My wife used to fall in love with this ring until she lost it two years ago. Since then, we have been searching everywhere to see how we can get it again. I’m glad I came across this today and Grace is also going to be happy. However, the post seems a bit old. Do you know how I can still get this ring TODAY?women’s poncho scarf

    Sometimes I style outfits around shoes too! But it’s usually more so when it’s a statement shoe. Something like OTK boots or booties or if they’re a fun color like those red heels.handmade jewelry

    I just thought I’d let you know that the Facebook Share isn’t working, just in case you need to know. I did share on my Fun and Funky Clothing board on Pinterest but wanted to share to FB. Will try back later in case the share is just having issues!women’s dresses

    Great advice. Layering is essential when you live in the mountains. We also try to make sure all of our clothes will go with several different pieces, that way the clothing can be worn more times without seeming the same. Definitely some helpful tipsSelf Care

    Total myth. I love horizontal stripes! Several of my favorite shirts and dresses are striped, and I’m not a skinny by any means. I feel good when I look good, and honey, I look Great in stripes!natural makeup look

    My budget has zero room for buying clothes right now. Is it possible to join the Style Me Pretty challenge just to get ideas? Goodness knows my wardrobe could use the help when there are funds in the budget!amex login
