Well, It's Mostly Black and White


I have always laughingly said. "I wear three colors...Black, White, and Blue".  Then I realized that is only ONE color - blue.  It is however true.  I have said from the beginning that I am truly a "neutrals" girl, and black and white are my "go to" neutrals. 




I was recently scrolling through pinterest after I had typed in a search of Amal Clooney.  I don't think I have ever watched someone in the celebrity world who is better dressed on a daily basis than she is.  I think she hits the mark...Every Time! 


One of my favorite casual everyday looks is just black and white. I guess I like it also, because it is one that I choose often during the shoes, a white or cream pant, black sweater shell, and 3/4 or short sleeve black button front sweater.  


Here, Mrs. Clooney donned tailored trousers with a button-down cardigan as she arrived for work in the Maldives. She topped off her look with chic accessories, including a white top-handle tote, oversize sunnies, and teardrop diamond earrings.



This is one of my favorites looks for my casual week.  I trade stock for a living and I sit at my computer a lot in the early morning.  Then I have household errands to run and this is just casual comfortable attire for what I do and how I live during the week. 





Today I chose a pair of Democracy, small ribbed, corduroy jeans, a black sweater tank and button-front 3/4 length sleeve sweater.  I cannot tell you what brand they are.  I cut the tag out...probably because it scratched my neck....and I hate that.  So Out They Come!  



My shoes are most comfortable flats by Christian Siriano.  I have had surgery on both of my feet, so I choose flats a lot more often these days. 




My necklace and earrings are old by Brighton.  I once won a contest at Northpark for having the most Brighton in a picture contest.  I should have been ashamed of myself.  But today, I still have a lot of Brighton to choose from.  I have a watch that I am loving these days and wear quite often.  It is Anne Klein with small diamonds and a black leather band.  I always wear the beautiful wedding rings from the most wonderful husband ever!!! and he knows how I love pearls and one of my favorite is a simple James Avery Pearl ring with scroll work on either side of the pearl.  He is such a sweetheart to me!!


Well, I am actually working right stocks are moving and I need to call this quits for today.  I pray each of you are blessed with a beautiful day today.  Thank you for letting me share with you...a little piece of my day.


Blessings to you all,

Cathy Budjenska
