I apologize for my brief absence! I was somewhat preoccupied with full-time school, midterms and my part-time internship. When I finally had the chance to get-away for fall break I ventured off to the happiest place on earth, Disneyland! It was decorated for “Halloween Time” and was nothing short of magical, per usual. But now it’s back to reality, unfortunately. And might I add what a very rude awakening it has been!

 I’m a total sucker for all things black and white. There’s just something so classic and timeless about it. Adding touches of red and gold seemed like a natural choice. I love the way these four colors mixed together lend themselves to a retro vibe so effortlessly, especially with this striped button up. It reminds me of a stewardess outfit from the 50’s or 60’s. I thought these retro shades added to the ensemble. However, I’m all about the unexpected details. So I shook it up with these extremely comfortable baggy track pants with the textured zippers to toughen it up a bit. Also, I think strappy sandals or high heels are the way to go with pants that cut off at the ankle like these. Booties or high tops don’t seem to flatter the ankles as well. Do you think otherwise? Let me know in the comments and I’d love to hear how you think I styled this black and white outfit too!
