Trendy tribal

I don't wear very much black. For me, it's one of the hardest neutrals to mix color with because of the often extreme contrast. So I like to stick with white, throw in a great print and a statement necklace.

Oooh love it! Such a great monochrome look! :D

That's a great skirt Lyddie, I also tend to stay away from black, funny thing a few years ago black ruled over my closet.

Rebecca said...

You pulled off the black and white look, thanks to that fun print!

La Fille D'or said...

Lovely. I really like this look. The skirt is awesome!

Kavery said...

First off I have to say your hair looks fab-all shiny and glossy. And yes I have too much black in my wardrobe too but it's sort of under control. I think!

Danielle said...

Great outfit!

I actually wear black too much. Most days I'm too lazy to coordinate colours and black is easy.

Gracey said...

Love the blouse and I think you've styled it perfectly. I've been looking for something tribal but haven't quite found the right piece, but I think this is great. You look lovely.

Alexa said...

Fantastic top! And that necklace is perfect!

I'm completely the opposite, I can't ever stop wearing black. You look beautiful in it! The tribal print top is lovely.

You may not wear much black but black looks fabulous on you.

Another stunning look! Love the top and the side zipper on the skirt.

I'm really digging on the tribal print aesthetic.

I usually stay away from all black as well, but I would definitely wear this outfit. You already know how much I love your skirt and the tribal print top gets extra points too. Super cute outfit!

Claire said...

This works so nicely. Thanks for the inspiration!

Anne said...

I like black and color because it's such a contrast! But black and white is always a wonderful combination. So classic.

Marie said...

What a sassssssy little pencil skirt! Love the front zipper, so cute. It's great against the horizontal tribal pattern of the top!

I like the unexpected zipper detail of your skirt and it works well with the tribal print top.:D

Have a happy June, Lydia!:D

I LOVE that top! The zipper detail on the front of the skirt is super cute as well. xx

Yeri said...

I didn't use to wear black either until I realized how quick, easy and polished you can look in it.

On a side note, the print on the top is really unique and interesting!

Jessica said...

Tribal prints are my favorite for summer. Add a wooden bangle and you're good to go! Or, you know, a pair of fab sandals like yours.

Amber Blue Bird said...

i have the opposite problem, I wear too much black especially to work since I can just grab a pair of black pants and any ole top and be done with it. Thats why I like your blog so much, it always provides me with inspiration especially for work outfits that are colorful and of course cute.

Style Eyes said...

I love black and white, the most striking combination. The print on this top is great.

Shea said...

You are rocking the black like a pro! I love how the print and necklace add great texture and interest to this look. Basic black this is definitely NOT!

Sabrina said...

I love that necklace! Black's doing pretty well for you!

Sincerely,
Sabrina

monica said...

Kim said...

Sue said...

Stunning, simple outfit! Love it.

Jess said...

Love the zippered pencil skirt and your tribal inspired top. You find the cutest items at TJ Maxx.
