Black & White


Hi everyone! The week seems to be moving quite fast. It feels like we greeted each other “Happy New Year” yesterday and today, it is already January 9th…time waits for no one. I need to start working on my “to do list” for the year, which includes setting up and organizing a new closet space. This should have been completed last year but I kept procrastinating. During the weekend, hubby and I finally made it to IKEA and we got the fixtures for my new closet space. Whenever I visit IKEA, I am always tempted to buy unnecessary things because I am a bit obsessed with interior decorations. Right now, I am on the search for a zebra print rug (I need you help). I am really excited about my new closet space and I promise to share pictures once the installation guys are done. 

Lately, I have been leaning towards black and white combinations as shown in this post. Styling black and white is always easy and I don’t think you can really go wrong with such mixes. In this post, I wore a Zara black and white print pants. You will not believe how long I have had the pants – since January 2012! That was the first time I wore it– I have no idea why I waited so long. 🙂 I also wore my tuxedo-inspired white blouse with black collar from Forever 21 and I completed the look with my favorite black pumps by Louboutin.

Outfit: Zara pants (sold out, love this here & here), Forever 21 blouse (similar here, here & here), Christian Louboutin pumps (sold out, similar herehere), Coat (c/o J Maxx Score, similar here & here), H&M Clutch (old, love this here & here), Michael Kors watch (similar here), Ray-Ban glasses (here)

    Black and white is always classic! I recently rebuilt my closet with the help of my dad's contractor. It was fun at first but organizing and color coding my clothes was a tideous task. Good luck! Can't wait to see the final product.

    If these are your black and white outfits, then keep them coming! Those pants are absolutely amazing- too bad they're sold out! You look so chic and sophisticated. And yay on getting more closet space! I'd convert a whole room into a closet a la the Kardashians if I could. It's so hard to remember all the pretty pieces you have unless they're right in front of you. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

    I can't tell you enough how much I love Zara (their price tags are the enemies) but even that, I still love Zara. Their pants and shoes and bags and jewelry are always on point. I need me some Zara as we speak.xoxo
