Black And WhitePosted: May 2, 2011
This week’s assignment for Bloggers Do It Better is “White Out”, the all-white spring/summer trend. It’s a bit of a challenge for me because I don’t own that many white things – only a button-up and couple of T-shirts and camis I use for layering. I’d planned to do a layered look, but the weather had another idea (it’s near 90 degrees today), so this is the best I came up with:
Polo shirt: Gap, from home
Shorts: Express, thrifted
Flats: Sag Harbor, thrifted
Sash: just a length of ribbon that I cut out and trimmed
I’m not entirely happy with this look. My shirt isn’t white (not even off-white) but more of a light sandy color, which looks kinda weird paired with the white-white short (I could’ve worn my white button-up, but I wanted something a little more loose-fitting for the heat.) Also, I think a larger belt/sash would look better, but this is the only size of ribbon I have on hands. And I wanted to keep it in the black/white color scheme, so that’s that.
Oh well. What’s the point of doing a style blog if you don’t have hits-and-misses, right?
