A New Love: Black & White

I reluctantly typed the words to today's post. I almost felt like I was cheating on the love of my life, you know: Color! I have worn saturating colors for as far back as I can remember. When I was a little girl, red was my favorite color, and my uncles used to call me Blood (long before that had a street meaning). I almost hate to admit it, but it is undeniably true: I now find myself drawn to black and white color palettes. 



There is something refreshing to me about wearing black and white together. I kept asking myself, why am I drawn to black & white?


I finally realized the answer: black & white clears my palate.What do I mean?


A palate cleanser generally introduces a neutral element that enables one to clear the palate from one flavor to another. I believe that black & white clears my palate and prepares me for my next color combo. 


I won't be giving up colors anytime soon, but I'm happy to add a new element into regular rotation.


Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for stopping by & commenting!

    1. Thank you! My sunnies collection is rapidly growing! We have so many days of sunshine here, and the brightness of it hurts my eyes. This way I can avoid watery eyes and can floss a fun accessory :) What did we do before booties?!
