black/white + shine

DSC_6889As I’ve mentioned before, my weekend attire is usually pretty casual…and by that, I mean zippers and buttons are notably absent. Stretchy pants, for the win!

DSC_6883On an unrelated note, the perfectionist in me is seriously bothered by the static-induced wrinkling of my top in these photos. I suppose I should have worn a cami underneath to counteract that? Argh.

  1. I love black and white with cobalt, what a great look! I have a few shirts that get static-y like that, and always have to wear a tank underneath or it drives me nuts.


    • I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets annoyed by things like that. I actually wear a cami underneath my shirts more often than not, but of course I decided not to on this day…


  2. for a second i thought that top was from j crew factory, but merona? i love it! you are such a pro at finding good deals on second-hand sites… it’s been so long since i’ve browsed around thredup (and i actually think i have some credit there) so i should head there right now while i’m inspired!


  3. Such a fun top! Like the above commenter, heidi, I wouldn’t have guessed it was Merona (although I do love Merona something fierce). Classy look perfected and glammed by the silver pumps and cobalt necklace!
