Overcast

"Not all who wander are lost."
{Tolkien}

Black and white is an extremely dynamic combination. For me, it stirs up a lot of emotions which I find profoundly interesting since it is commonly associated with being straightforward or clear and not mixed and ambiguous like the grey it produces when blended together. If you've been following my blog for awhile, you'll notice that I always include a quote in each one of my posts which is something I started a little while back. I choose quotes that speak to the emotions I feel from an outfit, and today's quote to me feels very black and white. To me, the imagery of "all who wander" and "those who are lost" is so black and white in my mind that it somehow just fits so perfectly with this pairing -- like poetry

The foundation for today's look was laid with the pieces I curated from the last #ifchic24 event. If you remember, I talked about IfChic last month in this post. I really enjoyed my first ever #ifchic24 shopping experience and was very pleased with the pieces I was able to pick up, so when the March event rolled around I was nothing short of giddy. If you know me, I love a good sale, and the best part of the #ifchic24 event {in my opinion} is the selection of items on a special up-to-50% discount for the day of the event only. I've also noticed that the site carries a lot of Australian brands that I've become a huge fan of, so it's nice to be able to shop these brands all at one stop! As a quick reminder, this event runs on the 24th of every month, for only 24 hours. During each day in between each event you can collect up to $6 worth of #ifchic24 coins to use towards your next event purchase! So doing some quick math, that's up to $180 worth of credit to shop!! Hello, spring wardrobe ;) To collect coins, make sure to hop on over to their website here, create an account, and login! There's still 15 days til the next event, which means there's still $90 dollars for you to pocket. So y'all better run {don't walk}, and I'll see you at the next #ifchic24 event!


Besos,
