Monochromatic Blocking & A Pop of Color

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

For the next week or two, I'll be wrapping up with some of my recent winter outfits.  I'm hoping that the weather will cooperate, and we will actually have spring weather by then!

Jacket:  Ann Taylor (Available here)
Blouse: The Limited (Available here)
Today, I'm featuring a recent work outfit.  I love monochromatic black and white outfits, but I also like adding in a pop of color with shoes or accessories.

Here, an all black top and bottom creates a lengthening line, while the ivory cropped tuxedo jacket adds a bit of contrast.
Pants:  The Limited (Similar here)
Shoes:  Target (Available here)
Green Mary Janes with a black contrast strap add a pop of color. 

The shoes, satchel, and jacket all have color blocking detailing that help tie the look together even more.
Satchel:  Target (Available here)
Are you a fan of adding pops of color to neutral looks?

  1. Love the outfit. The color blocking on jacket / bag / shoes adds a modern, classy touch.

    Another great look. Love the pop of color!

  5. I rather love that bag! It's from Target?!? I haven't been over there since the leaked debit card info, but maybe I should give them another try...

  6. I do love black and white outfits and i'm still loving that blazer and the bag really matches the black and white of the outfit. And the pop of green from the shoes are subtle but still a great pop of color.


  7. I like your style here. The teal color from those pumps give this outfit some interesting flavor. This is otherwise a very stylish monochromatic blocking outfit.
