Not Simply Black & White

Happy Friday! I am so glad it's Friday. Did I mention that Friday is my favorite day of the week? Ever since I was a young girl, I have been in love with Fridays. I see Fridays not simply as the end of the week (work week, or school week), but I see it as the beginning of a fresh start. Fridays are my days to relax (after work) look back at my week and think about what things I accomplished, and what things I plan on getting accomplished for the upcoming week.

Today I am sharing with you an outfit that is not your average black and white. This is my take on a black and white look with an edge.  I am one who loves to combine patterns, textures, and colors. Because this is a mostly black and white outfit, I wanted to make sure it included a balanced mix of patterns and texture to make this look a little more interesting, and not simply black and white. In this look, I mixed a sweater dress with a silver beaded detail, a hounds tooth print jacket, and faux suede thigh high boots with lace & fringe detail. I added the oversized jacket to give this very sexy look a classier feel.  I think it is okay for a woman to dress sexy as long as it is done in good taste. At first I was little apprehensive about wearing a short, tight dress with thigh high boots, but once I paired it up with the oversized jacket this look went from sassy to classy, while still maintaining a subtle sexiness.  A classic high bun makes this look extra clean and sleek. Of course I had to add in a pop of color, so I painted my nails red and put on a stoplight red lipstick and I was all set for a fun night out on the town. This look is perfect to wear out to dinner with girlfriends or a fashion-inspired event.

So what did you think of this look? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below.
