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!

  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.

  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.
