Shen Dove Style: A Study in Black and White

A Study in Black and White

Worn February 25, 2010, originally uploaded by ShenDove.

I was explaining to someone recently that it's not an exact science, but the brightness of the colors I am wearing has a direct correlation to my mood. When I am feeling pretty good, I tend to gravitate toward muted tones or neutrals, but when I am feeling down, I usually go for a pop of a bright color. So going by that theory, I'd say I was in a good mood when I wore this outfit. I love color, but there is a simplicity, and timeless-ness (is that a word?) to wearing black and white that will always make them go-to colors in my wardrobe.

I really believe that color affects your mood. That is probably why I'm itching to paint the walls of my apartment bright colors but the thought of investing money into a place I don't own always stop me short of heading to the paint store and putting down drop cloths....

I love how you pick up things from the kids department and then work them in so they look super chic. The simplicity of this outfit is perfect!
