Back to Basics

A New York Love Affair :: Black + White + Red

Ever have those days where you are feeling particularly uninspired? Maybe your mind is still hitting the snooze button or your creativity is eating breakfast in bed without you. Whatever the reason, we all have those days where that perfect outfit isn’t manifesting in our heads.

A New York Love Affair :: Black + White + Red

When I find myself in an inspirational rut, I try to go back to the basics: black + white. It’s a simple, timeless, and always stylish combination. Black and white works for every occasion, every time of day, and every season. Use it to achieve a classically chic look with little-to-no effort. To give my ensemble the slightest touch of color, I added tiny pops of red from head to toe.

    You can never go wrong with black and white – especially when you had a red sole! Such a gorgeous look for winter. And very similar to my go-to cold weather style :)
