Zara Basic Sandals
Leopard Print Jacket

Skirt:Express, Body Suit Top:ASOS, Clutch:Zara
Shoes:Zara, Watch:Michael Kors, Earrings:J-Crew, Bracelet:Cara Couture
Sunglasses:Prada, Coat:Forever 21 (similar), Necklace:Express (on sale)

You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to search for a white pencil skirt. Well, a reasonably priced one. I realized I needed one with all these pastels popping up for Spring. I wanted to pair pastel blouses with the skirt for work. I couldn’t resist this classic black and white look when I got this black bodysuit from ASOS. It’s perfect for a night out and also for work. Fashion experts recommend, when you are doing black and white, that the top be black and the bottom white. It’s also my preference.

My first time wearing these Zara heels and they are surprisingly comfortable. My only gripe is that one of the buckles came off, even before I wore the shoes! I think I can sew it back on though since it’s soft suede.

P/S: I finally have my Pinterest in order (work in progress). You can find me here.
