Too Much

Jersey shirt with collar and cuffs, Forever 21. Waistcoat, H&M. Floral skirt, Talbot’s. Belt, Xhilaration. Zebra pumps, Delicious. Bag, Vieta.



This outfit started out a little tamer (without the bag), but I couldn’t resist throwing a third, black and white pattern into the mix! For those of you who find the look overwhelming, you may be comforted to know that I broke a heel on the way in the building and am now sporting blue-green, satin ballet flats. A smart, stiletto-wearing girl always keeps backup shoes at the office.

LOVE the yellow accent with the black/white - great and summery.

I love all those patterns mixed together. LOVE the shoes.

Aw, bummer about the shoes! I hope you can fix them. I love, love, love all the black and whites together. I probably would have done a different bright shoe - I am grooving on yellow and turquoise together.

As Stacy will tell you (as she's my bestest friend ever...and my Italy companion), I LOVE the white, black and yellow colour scheme. I also liked the multiple black and white patterns. That being said, I would have liked one other spot of yellow (broach or bracelet, something small).

Overall, A+++
