For those who have known me for years would know that I tend to buy plain Jane clothes. I always go for the basics, classics, and wardrobe staples that never go out of style. To dress up my T shirt and pants look this week, I decided to go with a black and white color block theme. If you follow me on facebook, you may have seen my sale alert post at Banana Republic and BR factory. Did you find all sorts of goodies too? Without further ado, I present to you my outfit of the day.
Banana Republic Colorblock Top PXS ($15.75 w/ stackable coupons in store)
Calvin Klein Women's Laura Flats in black/ivory ($37 at Nordstrom Rack)
In store and online prices at Banana Republic are different. Tends to be cheaper in store. If cheaper online, most places will price match for you.

Let's start breaking down the outfit from top to bottom!
Chanel CC Logo creme color earrings (old)
This was a complete splurge after passing my board exam. After studying days and nights for months, I treated myself to this pair of earrings. I am so glad I did because I wear them all the time. They are casual, yet chic. I can dress them up or dress them down. ~LOVE~
Top from the front and back. It has a zipper back which weights the shirt down creating the slight V collar shape in the back. Another feature I like about this top is the sleeves. The shape of the sleeves flares out like an A line skirt on your arms. It's a flattering cut that narrows the appearance of the shoulders and makes the arms appear slimmer.
Side view of the pants
I like how there is a slit on the side. The slit causes the bottom to flare out a little bit, creating more of a trouser look than just another pair of black tights. This pair of pants is stretchy and extremely slim fit. If you have fuller hips and thighs, you may prefer the BR Hampton fit crop pants. The Hampton cut is less stretchy and way more flattering on someone that has more curves.
I love this bag. It's so structured and I love the texture of boarskin. Inside has a green + white polka dot lining. It's truly a classic. I didn't carry a purse for the longest time because I've always worn my backpack for school, which never seemed to end. From high school, then college, and up till med school graduation, it was my backpack and I. This was my first real purse, and perhaps the symbol of my first real step into having responsibilities?
This pair of shoes is so cute. I fell in love with it when I first tried it on. It is definitely NOT comfortable though. It is gorgeous but it is very narrow. I wear these babies only when I am having a sedentary day like going to Starbucks to study where the most I will ever walk is 20steps to and from my car. If I had narrow feet, I would wear these shoes everyday because they are so versatile and chic!
