CHECKMATE

Spring is poking its head in and out and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m ready to pull out my skirts, dresses, sleeveless numbers and sandals. I’m ready to ditch the cable knit tights, tall boots (well, I’ll still be wearing these from time to time), and long coats. I’m so happy I have this new found love for black and white. It can be worn year round, and can be worn so many ways. In the words of my cousin Nikki, “its so easy to style!” She also notes that “Simple is always better.” For someone like me that has a plethora of styles, I can totally dig it, but I’m not quite ready to depart from my vibrant and flashy looks…yet! Here, I’m in a white peplum top and black pencil skirt from Express. I topped it off with a black and white blazer from JC Penney. I added some vintage gold and Lucite jewelry to pull the look together. 

Love, Q
