i’m wearing: colorblocked lace dress c/o london times, black patent heels (not shown), DVF cat eye sunglasses c/o sunglassesshop.com and my baublebar necklace (new members get $10 off their first order…sign up here).

the black & white trend has been going strong for some time now and was all over the runways for spring 2013. oh, and i pretty much want to re-create every one of these b&w looks! i took full advantage of our gorgeous weather this past saturday and finally wore this fun b&w colorblocked lace dress. it was a good thing too because we had rain the following day and were bundled up in the house by the fire. is it just me or does it seem like we’ve had more rain than usual here in southern ca? the shortest day of the year was supposedly dec 22 but days don’t seem to be getting any longer yet. hurry up already daylight savings time. btw, i swear i have other things to talk about beside the weather. every day i have an idea for a blog post and then by the time i get settled in for the evening my brain is so fried that all i can think of is the gloomy weather. or my grey hair. maybe my blog should have been called “cloudy with a chance of grey”. or “salt & pepper”. lol.

p.s. london times is offering all stylish housewife readers $15 off their orders with code LT15. enjoy!!!

    This dress is just too cute on you – and I’m so glad I’m not the only one completely obsessed with black & white right now! 🙂

    This weather is horrible – well at least horrible for SD. Most other people are jealous but when you are not used to all this rain, it’s not fun. At least I am getting good use of my rain boot collection/obsession.

    That dress is adorable! Love the exposed zipper. It’s always little details like that that totally win me over. And don’t even get me started on the weather subject. I am a total Winter grump – between going to work when its dark and coming home in the dark – OVER IT! And here in Portland, Or we still have a long way to go before nice weather…..;)
