(Almost) All White

Sweatshirt: Target, Skirt: H&M (old), Asian-print bomber jacket: Zara (old), Shoes: Zara (old but similar), Accessories: J.Crew necklace, Lionette by Noa Sade bracelets, Nike FuelBand, Michael Kors watch, Catbird NYC rings, Lulu Frost code ring, H&M purse

I've secretly wanted to wear an all-white ensemble since the summer. Unfortunately, I just haven't come across the "right" whites. While the idea of matching white on white seems simple enough, there's a strategy I believe is involved:  finding the appropriate shade of white for your skin tone, pairing white pieces in similar shades that won't be "off," pairing pieces with texture and feeling confident in the pairing while making it seem effortless. I could totally be over thinking this. I'm known to be like that, too.

This look is not (obviously) all white but it's close enough for me until I find the appropriate pieces. I adore the feminine nature of the skirt contrasted with the masculine bomber jacket and sweatshirt. Since I'm never "just one style" this is a nice balance for me.

  1. I've been wanting to wear all white lately too! It's just so crisp and festive, you know (at least I think so lol)? The texture on that skirt is just so stunning!

  18. This is such a lovely look! I agree that it can be so hard to wear all black or white, since they come in such different shades. Nevertheless the detail on that jacket is amazing :)

  27. Any white is good enough (white is a god send all together to me) but I love your outfit & I really like how the black heels bring out the small darker colours in the bomber.
