How many black and white outfits in a row do you have to wear to before it's annoying? Asking for a friend. No, seriously, I feel like I'm hoarding inspiration of the 'stereotypical French fille' variety and manifesting it in my ever-more-Parisian wardrobe. It's funny because French people seriously don't dress the way I imagine that they do. Really emphasizes how un-cosmopolitan I am deep down... my sister has traveled to Europe and insists that, though Parisians are thin and gorgeous and conscious of their appearances, they don't wear black and white stripes quite as often as they wear Longchamp bags and flats. Boo. I want everyone to look like a page out of a coloring book. Except no colors, please. Can my monochromatic outfits emphasize that enough??

You know what's a cool thing? Stripes and polka dots in the same outfit. Even cooler is stripes ON stripes. I don't understand not being self-aware about cliche patterns and arranging obnoxious combinations for kitsch appeal. This outfit is pretty mild (if you're me) but now I have better ideas... in need of a mannequin to test my fashion visions before I publicly make a fool of myself. If you love the polka dots adorning my lil' feet, get yourself a pair by placing an order here or browse other styles on the PINK AND PEPPER page on DSW!
P.S. Romwe is having a MAJOR sale where everything in stock is 75% off until July 31st... that's the day after tomorrow! Like I said before, most of my staple garments, like blouses, sweaters, and skirts, come from Romwe. Even their accessory collection is top-notch! You can find creepers, stilettos, and chunky platform sandals in the shoe department. It's worth a look, even if you don't end up making a purchase. Lots of inspiration to go around!
