16 Spring Outfits

Black & White

The black and white trend is HUGE for spring this year!  It really has been all over the runways during the past few NYFW’s I’ve attended, and in my opinion, it’s one of the most wearable trends.  When T.J. Maxx asked me to style a black and white look for my third style challenge, I knew I wanted to go on the hunt for a striped dress!  The dress I ended up choosing was something that had caught my eye across the room.  Usually bigger stripes can be a little intimidating, but the high neckline and slanted stripes on top was so different, I knew it had to be mine!

To avoid looking too “worky,” I paired the dress with these fun pumps that give the look a bit of an edge!  You can check out my previous style challenges with T.J. Maxx here and here.  And don’t forget, you can submit your own T.J. Maxx Style Scout look for a chance to win up to a $500 gift card.  Make sure to:

    The entire outfit is beautiful. My eyes however keep going to those amazing shoes. If I wore heels I would want those on my closet.
