Mostly Black And White

{Photos by Pom; wearing Jacob blouse & skirt, Hermes belt, vintage military cardigan, Chanel bag} 

I've been on a search for a white blouse with black collar since last fall but haven't had luck until I saw one in the Jacob spring collection... Then even more of a surprise to find that Jacob was interested in sponsoring my blog. I nearly died. It was like clouds parted with the blouse drifting down- I'd take that over a beam of light and enchanted singing any day.

  22. How awesome is that blouse?! Love it paired with the skirt. You looks adorable + chic (which is kind of a hard balance to achieve!)
    And I love that they wanted to sponsor your blog...why wouldn't they?!
