Hello, beautiful people!

I'm really excited to share this outfit with you, as it is one of my favorite looks from this summer! I wore it out shopping last weekend and felt pretty badass while at it. No matter how much orange we're digging lately, black will always be the new black, and black and white will always be the most classic combination.
While working on decluttering my wardrobe and building it up with stronger/more timeless pieces, I realized that black and white are two of my dominant wardrobe colors, and the style I most identify with is classic. I also bought the special edition People StyleWatch to verify my observations, and yes, out of all the looks featured, I was most drawn to the classics (though I would add a touch of the feminine and cool girl look to the mix). My challenge, from now on, is to take the classics and make them modern. Challenge accepted.
For this look, I was feeling a bit experimental. This cutout top was purchased in California last year and though it's pretty intricate, it's also surprisingly versatile and one of my go-to pieces. I was really feeling the black and white look, but didn't want it looking too mod. Enter the concept of texture play- sheer top + faux leather studded flats + feather earrings and voila! I've got myself a perfect shopping outfit. Also very practical, since it's really easy to take everything off when trying on outfits! 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
