This is the second of the two outfits I submitted to the 40+Style black and white with color fashion challenge. I love this street style look, but I have to admit, being a stay-at-home mom leaves me with few opportunities to get all dressed up like this during the day. I usually leave dressing like this for a night out with the hubby.
I’m loving black and white this spring. I picked up this top at the Ann Taylor Factory Store. I especially like the vertical stripes – so flattering. Being bigger on top, horizontal stripes don’t always work on me, especially if they’re wide. The length of this top makes it very versatile. It can be worn out with leggings or tucked into jeans for a more casual look. The other thing I like about this top is it doesn’t have a traditional collar. I don’t know why, I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ve never liked myself in a collared shirt. Is anyone else out there like this or is this my own weird hang-up?
Any how, it’s my birthday today, so I’m heading out to meet some friends for lunch. Since I’m never on time, I’m thinking I better wrap this up and get going! Have a great day!!!
