Pin-spired #1: Black & White

To me, black and white is classic. I am drawn to the black shirts, pants, skirts, dresses, accessories, shoes and more every time I'm at the store. A pop of white feels refreshing. These two put together create a timeless look. I found my inspiration photo while browsing Pinterest one day. It was perfect. Simple, dressy, but not over the top. I knew this was a look I could pull off for the office.

Of course I needed to make this outfit work for me. Crop top - not happening. Sheer, flowy skirt - nope don't own one of those. I do however have a black skirt and black & white stripped shirt.

This look was perfect for the office. And I got a ton of compliments with how cute my outfit looked. I'm starting to appreciate skirts more - I mean who doesn't love a maxi - but these knee length skirts are really growing on me. 

This shirt is a little short for my liking, I guess that's what I get when I shop in the juniors section. So it worked out to tuck it in to achieve the same feel as the crop top in the original photo. Here's the side-by-side comparison.

So how did I do for my first pin-spired look?
