Black and White Chic

Top: Asos
Skirt: Zara
Clutch: Asos
Shoes: Fendi
Bracelets: C. Wonder

I hope your week is going well!  It's funny, but I always thought of myself as a pants person before I started this blog but I think that was just a function of working in male-dominated fields (consulting) and really cold climates (looking at you Chicago and Madison...).  At the beginning of the year, I started a new job in a majority female office here in Atlanta and have really embraced my femininity and style.  In the process, I've discovered that I actually love skirts (and apparently white ones (see here, here).  

When I saw this skirt is Zara, I thought about it for a nanosecond before buying it in black and white.  You know a piece is a good buy when you are creating outfits with it before you have even bought it!  I love the split front which is sexy but not in your face.  I love the ruffle detailing on the top of this shirt which elevates from basic to sophisticated.  Add in my favorite Fendi pumps (love the heel!) and a pop of color clutch and I'm ready to go (location tbd....)!

Has a new job ever changed your style?  How did it change?

Have a great day!

  3. WOW Nicole, you are wearing the most gorgeous pieces today. I love the skirt, blouse, heels & bracelet. The shoes & skirt are so architecturial, too. Plus you can't go wrong in Black+White. What a cool, bold, edgy, chic look!

  4. Holy crap those shoes are absolutely stunning!! I have to say that I used to be hesitant with skirts, too, but I have found my way back to them! You look amazing!


    1. Thanks Maggie! I have a little bit of a shoe obsession...

  5. You seriously always look so fabulous! Those shoes are incredible and I love that they get to be the star of this black and white outfit. You look gorgeous, Nicole!

  6. I barely wore skirts before the blog and now I have been styling outfits around them more often than usual. I still prefer pants though. :-) You look great from head to toe in this look! I love the split and gold buttons on the skirt.


    1. Lol, I'm really loving the skirts, but to dress down I still love a pair of jeans. Thanks Mo!!

  7. OMG! I am in LOVE with this outfit! Those shoes are killing me they're so sharp!

  9. Fantastic silhouettes here both with the shoulder detail on the top and the style of the skirt. Lovely look!

  10. Great skirt! I love the detailing and the overlap front. I used to love working in a majority female office because it was fun to see what everyone else wore and it made me bump up my style. I definitely wore a lot of heels.

  11. Indeed very chic! I adore that skirt and the gold buttons are so classic. Also, the pop of color with the clutch is amazing, love this look.
