I decided to take advantage of a sunny day and headed out with the girls for some lunch, shopping and some much needed laughs…What better way to keep it clean and effortless than with black and white? Whether it be jewelry or nails, it’s always fun and easy to add accent colors throughout the outfit with accessories.
Scott Schuman a.k.a The Sartorialist is not only one of my favorite bloggers, but a true inspiration. I was giving the blog a quick browse when I came across some excellent menswear styles.
*Style Note: Notice some of the subtle details such as cuffed jeans, patterned dress shirts, vibrant socks and shoe color. (I can’t wait to style my next menswear shoot with some of these ideas)
Here’s a glimpse of what should have you convinced to be an avid reader of The Sartorialist (that is, if you aren’t already…)
One of my favorite weekend activities has to be occupying a dance floor and scooping out the creative outfits my fellow night owls pull together. I have to give a shout out, or rather salute, the fashionistas that dare to rock some of these sky-high Jeffery Campbell masterpieces while painting the town red.
All these shoes are available at Nasty Gal, Urban Outfitters and Jeffery Campbell.com

If you’re a fan of colored bottoms like me, Gap might be your next stop to shop. The retailer launched it’s spring line, which includes bold and bright colors in khakis, jeans and jean leggings at a reasonable price of $49.99-$69.99 USD. I’m loving the fuchsia jeans and the blue and coral khakis — great job Gap!
