Black or white: MJ tribute and day 15!




































This was when I officially got to the bottom of my pile of clothes for the 30 for 30 challenge and it was day 15. So I accomplished my goal of wearing every piece at least once, even though I had to throw all of the black and white colors together at once. I feel like this is my Michael Jackson tribute of the 30 for 30. From this point on it is my strategy to not repeat an outfit I have worn already. Despite the simplicity of this outfit, I always love the clean lines of pairing black and white and having a little fun with that by using a white polka dot bow tie blouse. I love that the bow tie just peaks out of the top of this cardigan. This is definitely something I see myself pairing with a bright skirt in the spring time. Speaking of spring, it has been so warm lately that the hills are alive with music...except that we don't have hills in Ohio. Despite this heat wave, I couldn't be more excited by the heavy fabrics and deep colors walking down the runways at Fall 2011 NYC Fashion week. I have been wanting to highlight my favorites, but I have not had time this week, so I might provide an update this weekend. Stay tuned!

Like any true romantic, fall makes me reach for dark, floral patterns and feminine details. To balance out that vibe, I occasionally drif...
