Last weekend M and I and some friends went to a seafood festival (as most of you know, I don’t eat meat but I do eat some seafood.) The weather was perfect, sunny and warm. And so I had some fun with my outfit:
My theme was center around a play on black and white, the monochrome look is still a favorite for me but I mixed things up a bit by wearing one black and one white Melissa Barbie Stiletto print ultragirl flat shoe. When I bought them in 2011 I first bought the white pair and then right away I knew I needed the black pair too in order to do this mixed and matched look.
I’ll show you this fun way I styled them back in 2012 giving three ways to wear them:
I have to say I do prefer these clean black and white outfits simply because I like how cohesive they are. That said, I also quite like my current outfit, because it was really fun and the yellow dress really pops. The dress in question is this Asos Straw Crochet dress.
I started off wearing black opaque tights but it was very warm out so I decided to take them off. It’s funny how in the close-up shoe photo above my legs actually look a bit tanned because they are not at all! I upped the contrast in that photo to show off the details on the shoes (I had posted that photo on instagram, otherwise I don’t edit my photos.)
This is a more realistic portrayal of my complete and utter paleness. Although I do think I caught a bit of color on them actually, I’m normally even paler.
To play along with the black and white theme I wore one black and one white stud earring and one of my favorite satchel bags (from H&M). I also wore a jean jacket that I bought in NYC.
After our seafood lunch we went to the riverbank and sat around a while and then we went to M’s parents’ flat and I did some installments on their computer before heading home. It was a really nice day and I hope you liked my outfit.

I’m really digging this look, that yellow dress is awesome and I’ve never tried mismatching shoes but this post makes me want to 🙂
Thank you:)) You should try it out, it was fun!
Those shoes are gorgeous! And I love you wore one white one black.
I have these, in white! I used to wear them around the house, couldn’t resist the cute shoe print. I’ve never mis-matched shoes (have quite a few pairs I could do it with).
