An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

MCLV Style: Black And White Florals

Even on lovely Spring days I’m not always in the mood for color – That’s why my wardrobe has a hefty dose of moody black & white prints. They’re dramatic and eye-catching without being overly in-your-face which I especially like for hot Summer nights.

My favorite way to spice up a clean black & white look is with a statement piece – A killer necklace, a dramatic shoe, or, as in this case, a bold scarf. I raved about this fun TopShop scarf earlier this Spring {Transitioning From Winter-To-Spring} and clearly the love affaire continues! πŸ™‚

What’s your favorite way to spice up a simple look?

  6. I’m a color addict but I still have a few black and white dresses so I don’t look like a clown every day of summer.:D Some days you just don’t feel like wearing colors, I agree… Gorgeous dress, honey, you look absolutely lovely!

  9. I got that scarf in the pink and gray version and have yet to wear it yet. I don’t think anything will compare to this look, love, love, love it with the black and white!
