Two Colors You Can Count On Every Season

There are two colors that I can always count on to be "in style": black and white.

Black and white brings back memories of high school when I would call up my friends to plan out what we were going to wear to school the next day. We always ended up choosing a black and white theme because it was just easy. I think we even started calling ourselves the "Mod Squad". I'm on the far left in the picture below...

The Mod Squad


In the October 2009 edition of InStyle magazine, I came across a spread featuring celebrities sporting black and white striped skirts. Rashida Jones, Heidi Klum, Kelly Ripa, and Rihanna were all wearing cute outfits, of course.

Black and white handcrafted beaded earringsAfter seeing this picture in the magazine, I was inspired to create a couple pairs of beaded earrings - earrings I would wear with a black and white outfit.

These earrings and more handcrafted jewelry are available in my Etsy shop. I'll be adding more pieces every week!

  1. Out of curiosity, was that high school photo taken in the Philippines?

    1. Yes, it was taken in the Philippines! I went to a school on the military base in Subic Bay :)
