Zara is the bomb right now!  This take on the black & white trend is especially great–not to mention, the entire look (sans bag) is under $200!

More White on White

Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon demonstrates how white on white can be soft and feminine but also sophisticated with a smidge of edge.  The feminine lace top and sorbet hued accessories work with the layered necklaces and clean lines of the blazer and denim.   Love it all.

Perfectly Tied

Did you know there is a right way and a wrong way to tie a bow?  I definitely didn’t… that is, until I came across this informative post by the lovely Liz Cherk in her blog, Late Afternoon.   You see the trick, according to Liz, is to remember to pull the right loop over and under.   It certainly sounds simple and makes a world of difference. 

  Liz’s bow tying lesson couldn’t be more timely.  Indeed, a good bow will be the perfect finishing touch to Spring’s paperbag trousers and shorts.  Love these Kimichi Blue Trousers from Urban Outfitters, $59.00.

Go ahead and give it a try.  Let me know your thoughts.
