Black & White

Love the black faux fur vest
Such a cute look for Winter!
Black and white outfit for winter
striped turtleneck dress (size up one! I'm wearing a small) // faux fur vest
similar over-the-knee boots (mine are Ivanka Trump) // Chloe Drew bag
Chanel lipstick #145

I love a good black & white outfit, and this one is no exception! There's something about black and white outfit that just screams "chic." This striped turtleneck dress is the perfect dress for layering since it's pretty slim fitting. You can layer on cardigans, vests, sweaters and more to create a bunch of different looks. I do recommend going up one size… it's technically a "body-con" dress but I didn't want mine to fit too tight, so I sized up. Since I was going for a white-and-black look, I paired it with my favorite faux fur vest and some black OTK boots.

Remember yesterday when I talked about the "mild" winter in North Carolina? Well I spoke too soon! Today and yesterday our temps were in the 40s, but the wind has been ferocious so it's making it feel much colder outside. My apartment is in a high rise, so I can hear the wind howling at all hours & it's actually pretty scary sometimes! I wish our weather would just make up it's mind…

  30. I am obsessed with that dress! I love the long sleeve and tight fit combined with the more conservative turtle neck. OTK boots are such a great finishing touch to this look! I must say I am sad the starbucks cup is back to boring white though. i already miss christmas!
