travel outfit: black and white magic








I’m loving black and white lately and have been trying to find ways to elevate my pairings. Since I’d been dying to wear my Buqisi Ruux babies all month, this cute black and white jumpsuit presented perfect opportunity…

You know how much I love jumpsuits right? The ease with slipping them on, pairing them with either heels or sneakers, taking them out for dinner or lunch… I must have featured several on my Instagram too!

I LOVE how confident slipping on these heels made me feel, as well as made the jumpsuit come to life with the pop of colour. Im sure i’ll be featuring these in another look, as there are endless ways to rock them. That’s that black and white magic!

How are you rocking your prints?
