Black and White, once again

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style—Maya Angelou

After a rather hectic month when work was full-swing and I was just too poorly to do much, I am back. Hopefully for good.

As a fashion-loving mum, I am always looking out for dress options that can take me from AM to PM in a snap. So, I have been on a mission to find if such a dress even exists. Truth be told, I was ready to give up because I just could not find styles with a certain je ne sais quoi which is work appropriate yet chic enough for the evening. Which can be dressed down when I am running behind my toddler or dressed up whilst on a date night with the man or can be styled appropriately for work.

So, when I saw this black and white, skater style number, it was a love at first sight. As soon as I opened it out of the package (man, I love online shopping!) and donned it, I was sold. I have an unabashed love for black and white ensembles. It’s simple, understated, perennially chic and can be styled in million ways.

So how do you it for morning till evening? Throw a boy friend blazer, some dark tights, boots for the morning like I have done here. Add simple accessories like a watch (or Fitbit in my case, which is my current obsession), a single bracelet or bangle and earrings for morning, add a bag that can be cleverly converted into a clutch for morning (like I have done with my favourite satchel in pink (for colour pop) here).

To this take away the blazer and add more bangles, perhaps a statement necklace (which I forgot here :() and your bag turned clutch and voila!

You now have a style that will help you nail that deal at work and take you swimmingly well whether you want to go dancing with your friends, drinks at the pub or date night with the other half.

So, who says AM to PM dressing has to be boring or stressful with my handy tips I am sure you will rock the boardroom and the dance floor with the same pizazz. 🙂
