The Virtues of Black and White

My mum always proclaimed the virtues of wearing white in the summer yet never in the winter! And black in the winter but never in the summer! It seems in her book this was some sort of unwritten law and must be abided by at all costs!
Bloody hell she’s bound to be unhappy this spring/summer as black and white have decided to have a happy marriage together this season! Frocks, capris, blouses, and shoes! Doesn’t black realize it should be hibernating in the back of our closets?

Now, growing up, my mum’s rule seemed golden and sensible! Black is a nice color but I much prefer lighter colors come summer so her “law” molded me and when the warmer weather was upon us all my browns, blacks, and darker colors were pushed deeper into my closet for a long rest while my brighter, lighter shades came out to play after a deep sleep.

This morning I woke up and I combined white, black, and silver! Tis 75 degrees out and I broke the law! The fuzz are sure to come knocking at my office door today, pick me up, lock me up, and throw away the key!

The horror of it all! How could I do such a wicked thing!

But I must say that the runways have got it exactly right this season!

The combination of black, white, and silver boggles my little mind! I’m quite happily wriggling around in the following stunning items darling:

Just don’t tell my mum ok? I’ll deny it all if you do!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
