Chromatic Schematic


(Wearing: BDG Tee, Gap Skirt, Michael Kors Sandals)

It is a very rare day that I wear black, let alone only black and white, but the hazy day and the stressful undertones of the last Monday of the school year called for it. These photographs were taken by a side door on a house from around 1860. I love old houses like this where the paint is chipping and you can't help but wonder what it was like when it was first built. Even the windows look original. They're so thick and bumpy. It gives me kind of a haunted feeling, similarly to grey days.

  4. I like the ease of your outfit. The building you're in front of is lovely too. It's funny how much black as infiltrated my closet in the past year...

  11. haha the answer is no she can't be any more beautiful because THAT would truly be a crime or atleast COMPLETELY unfair! haha :D


    Such a simple yet chic outfit you have on. I say embrace the black and white! It looks lovely on you! :D And I couldn't agree more with your synposis of the beauty of chipping buildings. I always wonder the same things :)
