Clean + Classic

Dress: H&M (similar here and here)| Blazer: H&M (similar) | Shoes: Zara | Clutch: Forever 21 (similar)

I love to wear black. When I don't wear black, I want to get credit, so naturally my next choice is to go for bright memorable colors. I tend to forget that neutrals and pastels can create classic looks (like good ol' black) that are fun, fresh and clean-looking for spring. Best of both worlds!

The benefits of clean, classic looks are that they are smart, timeless, and always relevant regardless of the season. For someone interested in maximizing their wardrobe, investing in quality black and neutral items is a great place to start. Next, make things interesting by adding prints to your closet that are likely to be around for a while such as stripes and subtle patterns. Lastly, add a few pieces that are in your most flattering colors - and viola! - you're well-prepared to mix and match to create some head turning looks.

Just a few things to keep in mind as you do some spring cleaning... 
...and subsequent warm weather shopping.

    1. Thanks! And to think, you weren't sold at first ;)

      Shopping? I don't think you'll have to do too much convincing to persuade your wife to do that!

  2. It hadn't dawned on my black could work so well with pastel colors. Nice outfit. And your husband's comments are quite entertaining. :-)

    P.S. Thanks for the scripture, it's fitting for a Monday and my focus this week!
