(ABOVE) I love pink with black and white.  It’s such a crisp, bright combination.


I don’t wear black that much during the day, but when I do I seem to do it several times in a row, as evidenced by this weekend.  Yesterday’s post was a black and white striped tee with a black puffer vest and today’s is this black cardigan and black and white floral skirt, which I’ve had for years and love.

I tend to like looks that are either bright and happy or soft and feminine.  So when I wear black I try to make it fit one of those two categories.  With the black puffer vest I softened the look with light wash jeans and brown accessories (see it here).  With this outfit I brightened it with white and gold sea-inspired accessories and a very bright pink tote. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
