Mossimo Women’s Sleeveless Top ($23)

Black and white prints are everywhere this spring/summer, but unlike most trends, this one actually has staying power.  So if you want to spend some money on a black and white top, dress or skirt, know that you’ll be able to work it into your daily outfits for seasons to come.  And if you don’t want to spend a lot of money, this printed, peplum blouse from Target is a great choice.

If you’d like the color combination with a basic shape, this basic silk tank in a black and white graphic print is a great buy at under-$50.  I also think the pattern on this Madewell top is gorgeous.  I also like the print on this wrap top with a short, flutter sleeve.  And if your style is a bit funkier, I like this mix and match dot print in a mostly sheer fabric from Dorothy Perkins.

Not feeling the blouses?  I also love this Theory dress is a bold print and this jersey dress that would be perfect for a dinner out.

Plus size ladies should look at this button up blouse and this ah-may-zing dress in a great black and white print.  Petites may like this inexpensive dress, and I was intrigued by this squiggle printed top.

    My god, $140 for a printed Rayon tank top- on sale. Madewell, that’s ridiculous! I’ve seen a nearly identical tank at Forever 21 for literally one tenth the price

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
