Something about black and white creates a 'cool' effect. When I was putting this outfit together, I couldn't help but stand by a blue wall. The blue backdrop just makes the black and white just pop. It kind of makes me think of a modernized, feminine 'Blues Brothers' look. Haha does that even make sense?! Lately, I've been inspired by the colorful walls around the city (see the pink wall here). Every time I see a pop of color in the city, I think about what outfit will pair well with it.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
