There's little as striking as a black and white ensemble. It just...speaks. And this one says, "I'm confused. Because I just got invited to a "summer evening" poetry event...on May 19th." Oh, it's not saying that? Well, that's what I'm saying. I'm assuming the hostess just put the wrong month, because JULY 19th is also a Monday?
Anyway, back to clothing. I really love the Jackie-Kennedy-on-vacation vibe of this outfit. White wide leg trousers are so summer-in-the-Cape, and with some statement sunglasses, you can't go too wrong.
As an aside: How do you guys feel about wearing jewelry that was a gift from an old boyfriend? And also, how awesome is the zebra print inside the sunglasses?! I've had these sunglasses for so long I can't even remember where I got them.
I wore this outfit to church with a little vintage-y black jacket. This rope off-the-shoulder detail is really fun and flirty, but not necessarily super church-appropriate. There were three or four of us wearing black and white outfits. I wish we'd gotten a picture!
You can't see my shoes here because the heels sunk into the soft ground. I was wearing the cute bow pumps I got here. And then I went to Shakespeare in the Park...what a lovely day!!
