black + white

blazer| c/o MAONO blouse| c/o MAONO skirt| h&m (similar RACHEL Rachel Roy on sale!) sheer tights| similar booties| DVF 

One of the big trends for spring is black + white.  I love it!  I think this may be the easiest trend to translate into real life.  And the fact that the "white rule" before Memorial Day is thrown out the window really makes me happy (who likes to follow pretend dress codes anyway?!).  When I tried on this white MAONO blazer, I instantly thought it was made and tailored for me.  
After this thought, my addiction to blazers was as strong as ever and my love of the new black + white trend grew insanely.  


FACT : This blazer is actually wool!  When I first tried it on I didn't even know because it was so soft! 
FACT : The tailoring is amazing.  

What I really love about this blazer besides the above mentioned, is the long lapel on the blazer to make it look more like a men's jacket.  It just really differentiates itself from all the other white blazer's I've contemplated buying over the last year but never took the plunge on.

NEXT WEEK I'll show you how I styled this blazer for a more casual look, and how it really is a great dressy or casual addition to a look.
