The (Almost) New Black

Friday, May 30, 2014

I had the fantastic opportunity to shoot with Teban of @asian_impressions this past weekend in Central Park. He has been a strong supporter of my blog, and I absolutely love his work as a street style photographer. He values natural beauty, which made me much more comfortable shooting amidst the crowds of people.

Skirt: H&M (similar here)
Heels: Zara (similar here & here)
Sunglasses: Zero UV 
Necklace: Forever 21 (similar here & here)

White is everywhere this summer. Even with my New York loyalty to a black wardrobe, I've fallen victim to the clean look of an all white ensemble. To keep this monochrome look interesting, I played with different textures and patterns. I love the floral cutouts of this top, which keep it light for the summer season. I paired it with a textured flared skirt as a girly touch and added neutral-colored accessories to fully embrace the white-out look. However, I can't neglect the chance to add a statement pop of color. I've been loving these beaded necklaces and decided to add this red piece for the ultimate summer vibe. Who knew I could actually create an outfit without a thread of black?

P.S. -- If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I'm currently in Puerto Rico! That being said, be on the lookout for a travel diary in the near future...
