I've always loved wearing black and since I've lived in NYC, my obsession with black has reached another level.  Black is always a safe option and it looks great on everyone.  I have been searching for a great black and white striped top for awhile now and I actually found one from a different brand that was 100% silk and cost $200.  I was about to pull the trigger, but then one day when I was browsing H&M I spotted this blouse that gave the exact same look I was going for at  a fraction of the price!  I know that this blouse will not last as long as the more expensive silk version, but I think I will get a few uses out of it for the season which makes it worth it.  Today I paired it with my favorite black skinny jeans and my Anine Bing lace camisole.  One of my favorite styling tricks is layering lace under a button down or tee so it peaks out a little.  This outfit is perfect for a casual holiday party or dinner out with friends.
