I don’t have much to say today, which is a bit odd for me. I think my just brain wants quiet time. But, thankfully it didn’t go on hiatus before I got dressed and made it through the day. Thanks, brain.
This is my simply black and white outfit with a splash of color. And yes, I sure did wear that necklace and those shoes yesterday. Thanks for not judging, you guys.
Cardigan: Banana Republic ($18 marked down from $70)
Top: H&M ($10 marked down from approx $20)
Tights: Target ($8)
Shoes: Lula Townsend at DSW ($12 marked down from $79)
Necklace: Limited ($5 marked down from $33)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I sure did wear those shoes and necklace in my last post, but I changed them up by adding tights (instead of leggings) and double layering my long necklace into a short necklace. One way to change up shoes is by adding tights, leggings, different colored tights, or ankle pants. An easy way to change up necklaces is to layer them and/or doubling them up from a long necklace into a short necklace. No one will be the wiser if you use those easy change up tips!
2) I’ve actually never worn this dress with a scarf, especially not a flower print scarf. But, I liked the unexpected pattern and bit of color splash added to an otherwise black and white outfit. I generally like to get my scarves for under $10 at H&M, Nordstrom Rack, Limited, and Ann Taylor (clearance sections, of course).
Anyone else have good tips for accessories shopping on a budget?
Thanks so much for stopping by readers! I appreciate all of your support!

Burberry dress? WOW. i love it!
Beautiful outfit 🙂
OMG that dress. Seriously! 🙂 You have amazing friends!
Great shoes! Good tips for changing up shoes and necklaces. 🙂
Love the combination of the dress and scarf! I never would have paired them but you are right its a perfect combination. I often sales section of Macy’s jewelry. Its even better when you have a coupon. Also if you have a Francesca’s in your area, they often have BOGO sales.
Awesome tip!! I have to try our Macy’s and Francesa’s!! Thanks xo
What a beautiful dress and stunning shoes! I love the different outfit combinations!

I agree with you about the scarf, it’s unexpected yet it adds just the right amount of colour! I love the mix of patterns and prints here!
Cute dress and the splash of color from the scarf looks great! x
I knew you were right before but now I know for certain you were right about fashion souls sisters. That dress… not to mention every time I see those heels on you I want them that much more!
Oh I LOVE that dress SO much! So fabulous and I adore that you styled it with the black and white shoes! Gorgeous!
Love the dress!

damn we posted a comment and it disappeared into cyber space
here we go again lol: love the outfit, love the use of colorful accessories and in short, totally fab!!
I hate when that happens! Thanks for re-posting it 🙂 xo ladies!
Ugh give me your poses! I always rotate the same awkward poses. Haha, no judgement here, I do that alllllll thee time, especially on the days I don’t post you can bet your briches that I’m re-wearing something I literally just wore, and it’s okay brains get tired too. xx
LOL LOL posing is the most awkward part of blogging- I generally use the same ones…but then try to toss in a complete wild card. Safe to say that there’s a LOT of outtakes. xo
Thanks for not judging my accessory repeating, you guys- and for supporting my awkward poses! 🙂 xo
Love the black and white look, especially your heels 🙂
Come to take a look to my blog at http://www.thecosmochic.blogspot.it
Shall we follow each other? xx
Love your blog too! Thanks for following- just started following yours!! xo
Ahhh I love this whole look! Haha maybe because I’m having a bit of a “mad about plaid” moment, but something about this just SPEAKS to me! The perfect color combo for winter and don’t even worry about the accessory repeats – I literally wear the same earrings and necklace every. single. day. We’re only human! 😉
🙂 so true! I’m living in plaid too, lately! Yesterday I realized I wore plaid shirts for like 4-5 days straight!! I think plaid just feels cozy for winter!! xo
Love the plaid. It takes me back to the days when I tried to replicate all of the outfits from Clueless! And honestly, good for you for wearing the accessories two days in a row! We don’t judge. 🙂
LOVE the shoes! So cute!
Love this…it’s the perfect naughty librarian look! Ha, well that’s at least what the boys call me when I put my glasses on and lady like clothes on! LOL They seem to love that look! 😛 You worked this whole look!
