can't stop :: black and white

You guys, I'm so confused. One day I say I'm not ready for fall, and then the next day (and day after that) I'm in black and white. They're the only two colors I really want to wear. I mean, the temperature still doesn't have me reaching for sweaters or plaid shirts, but I am all about my neutrals. I reached for my purple print scarf to add some color to the mix. I was still half-asleep when I put together this outfit, so I reached for my purple flats - not even realizing they don't actually match my scarf. In my defense, I have purple heels on my wish list. If you ever see any at a reasonable price, feel free to send them my way :)

  1. As a colour consultant I'm all in favour of wearing a scarf in the correct colour for our skin, epsecially when wearing black. I kjust love the colours and pattern on your blue scarf!

  2. Ooh, I really like that scarf, Kate! I'm a huge fan of black, white, and purple together, so yeah, I like this outfit. I can't stop wearing neutrals, either - they're just all I'm drawn to these days!

  4. So, I read this post on my phone and got on my computer just to comment. Don't you feel special? Anyway, I remembered seeing purple heels when I was at Aerosoles, and their shoes are coooomfortable.

    Here is the pair I saw: http://www.aerosoles.com/store/jump/product/Dolled-up-Leather-Slip-On-Pump/DOLLED-UP?nav=cat730001:cat730201

    They also have this pair: http://www.aerosoles.com/store/jump/product/Shape-Up-Suede-Dress-Mary-Jane-Shoe/SHAPE-UP?nav=cat730001:cat730201

  5. I always love black and white and I really like it with your scarf! Ooo purple heels would be fun! I have one pair that I wore at my wedding, so they're very summery, but let us know when you find a pair!

  8. I think the purples together look fine. It brings some sass to the black and white.

  9. Black and white is the best though! Always classy and easy to match :) Plus the pops of color add the perfect finishing touch. I'd say, keep rolling with it!

  10. Instead of telling us that you were half asleep, just say you were going for monochromatic without being matchy-matchy. Haha. You look cute despite your sleepiness!

  11. This scarf is gorgeous! And I think you can get away with wearing different shades of the same color, especially when they aren't right next to each other like you have here.

  12. I am in love with that pretty scarf and bonus points since it is both super long and wide.
