Black + White Simplicity

Though I've worn plenty of color so far this year (especially pink), I've also worn a great deal of black and white.  When you are short on time in the morning, sometimes coordinating patterns or bright colors is a bit of a lofty goal. On these days, picking the simplest of colors: black and white works best.

My thoughts and prayers are still with those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.

I read in the paper recently that according to Bundle DC is the ninth most fashionable city.  According to this list, higher spending on clothing translates into being more fashionable...I was surprised that Irvine, CA, not New York, NY was number #1 on the list.  As a DC resident, I certainly see fashionable ladies and gents in DC on a regular basis.  But this list doesn't take into account the countless eco-conscious fashionable folks that refashion, swap, and buy items second-hand. There are also a number of style-conscious people that shop regularly, but just don't spend exorbitant amounts on items.

What I love most about personal style is that style is not limited to a particular price-point. So after reading about how fashionable DC is in comparison to other cities, I noted the list then promptly put the paper that contained the list and accompanying article in the recycle bin...
