Textured

Sunday, June 22, 2014







Top: Tobi
Skirt: Forever 21 (similar here & here)
Clutch: Nine West via TJ Maxx (similar here)
Sunglasses: Zero UV
Sandals: H&M (similar here)

As a girl with a tendency towards wearing black white, I love experimenting with different ways to make my outfits even more interesting. Today I'm playing with texture, a subtle way to enhance an outfit that can make all the difference. This includes my laser cut pleather top, raised stripe fluted skirt, and faux snakeskin clutch. Though this may sound like an unlikely combination, the consistent color palette keeps the outfit from appearing too busy. As an added bonus, this look is still very comfortable with the fabric lining of my top and thick soles of my sandals. The combination of comfort and chic is perfect these hot summer days.
