Blogger Style Challenge: Black & White

Happy Monday lovelies! I’m super excited to be bringing you another blogger style challenge! It’s been far too long since we’ve done one. This go around I joined forces with the lovely ladies behind Ava Grace’s Closet and Get Your Pretty On. We chose black and white as our trend of choice and have each shared our take on it.

As soon as I saw this geometric print Gap maxi dress, I knew I had to have it! And I’ve been looking for a reason to bust out the Prabal Gurung for Target lace up heels that I scored ages ago. I finished my black and white look with a Patricia Nash neon bag and simple BaubleBar bangle (similar here). I just love how neon pops against black and white. Don’t you?!?

Now that you’ve seen my version of this fabulous trend, head on over to see Susan and Alison! I know you’re going to love what they have in store for you!

And don’t forget to join us, Momtrends and Glamamom for Monday Mingle by linking up your style posts. Momtrends is hosting the linky this week!

    Sweet maxi! I love that you chose a b&w graphic print to pair with the bright clutch (which is gorg)! They accentuate each other so well!

    Black and white is my favourite colour combination to wear. And I love the colour you added with the clutch.

    Also, your hair looks really good in these pictures.
