I am always an advocate of Black & White. In fashion, there is just something about combining B&W together that evoke a chic sophistication. Together B&W are a classic color combination that never go out of style, and paired together they look good on anybody. Additionally, they can easily be mixed and matched to create a casual ensemble, or a professional look, with the right shoes and accessories.
I have had this particular outfit (see above) pinned on my Fantasy Closet Pinterest board for about a year now. I really enjoy the juxtaposition of the masculine plaid paired with the feminine accessories, and the “neutral” black skinny pants paired with the loose black shirt. This (P)inspiration outfit is most definitely a great “busy-mom-on-the-go” outfit -OR- works as a casual “girls night/date night/going out/anytime” outfit.
Originally, I had thought it would be a great Finding Fashion Challenge for me because it’s cute, casual, and comfortable- the ideal outfit for busy moms (such as myself, or anyone who loves a great black and white ensemble). Plus, it is a great way to start (or add to) a French Capsule Wardrobe.
So, when I revisited this outfit on my Fantasy Closet board, I thought- “Hey! I should merge a Saw It. Pinned It. DID It! Challenge with a Finding Fashion Challenge! I love to find these outfits online, but it’s not often that I actually go out and PURCHASE my own Finding Fashion inspired outfits to show that it really can be done! So, let’s remedy that!” And Voila…
Here it is, straight from MY closet!
