black + white (and tired)

Today I wore a color palette that is not typical for me–black + white (okay, and gray). Last night I was trying to figure out a way to add some color to this outfit–“A red shoe? A blue belt? Mint earrings?”–until I finally just decided to go with a neutral look. Sometimes I like wearing something a little more subdued in color.


As you can see in the picture above, I am looking quite tired today. To be fair, I forgot to put on my lip gloss before snapping these photos, but still–I look like I would prefer to be in bed. Ah well–I’m glad tomorrow is Friday!


My cute little bow watch is turning out to be a favorite of mine. I’m used to wearing larger, chunky watches, so I kind of like the femininity that this thin-banded watch adds to my outfit.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

  1. I am not a watch wearer myself, but that bow watch is darling! I love how it adds a little extra something to your outfit! Your cardigan is super cute, too. They had it at my Old Navy on clearance, and I was looking for my size…but all they had left were XS – clearly not me! Haha 🙂
