black and white











Outfit
Top: H&M see it worn another way HERE
Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: Sam Edelman such a fashion STEELE at $49 via Nordstroms Rack
Watch: Casio
Sunnies: D&G via Sunglass Hut see them wore differently HERE

This is one of my favorite vintage skirts. It's a white pleated linen. It's actually one of the first thrifted pieces I bought when I first moved to NYC. From this tiny little thrift shop on Lexington in Gramercy. I've been wearing a lot of white and black lately. I guess its my new uniform.
Check out some more of my favorite vintage/thrifted skirts HERE, HERE and HERE!!!
ps
so glad I cut my hair...its too hot in NYC for anything on my neck!

  4. I love this black and white outfit. It looks amazing, and the skirt is perfect for summer!!
    I can imagine that your neck feels AWESOME without all the poundage of hair on it. I hate that. That's why I always ponytail it in the summer.

  9. OMG! How chic! I love this outfit! And the pleated skirt is all the rave right now! Love that you paired it with your olive green Edelman's!I am kicking myself for not purchasing them in red at a recent shoe sale that I attended! It feels like you're literally walking on air cuz they're so light!

    You look fab! xoxo TY
