This is what I wore to meet Kate Somerville last month.  Black and white is a classic combination, but the cropped sweater gave it a little more drama!  Can’t go wrong with the classics.

The Style Rx:  To wear a crop top more conservatively, wear it over another top like an oxford shirt or one with a high-low hem.

BTW, did you notice anything different?  SOS got a new look!  I’m still working out bugs so let me know if you find anything!

    nice outfit. Love the black with the pop of color in the bag!
    Is that the Kimbell in the background? We used to go there all the time, haven’t been in ages though.

      Great eye Jane! It IS the Kimbell in the background! We have a membership but use it in “short spurts” with the little guy… about 15 minutes to get through an exhibit before he has lost interest!

      They have impressionist paintings from the Musee D’Orsay in Paris on exhibit right now! We still haven’t been but wanting to go!

      Thank you Mica! I’ve had that crop top forever and haven’t worn it until now. I couldn’t get rid of it bc of the pretty bead detailing near the collar.

      And thanks for the complement on the new blog layout! It changed again…!

  5. In love with this look. You look gorgeous. Also great pop of color with the bag, and in love with your Chanel earrings. They are to die for.
