WIW 5/26-27: Black and white diptych--Pointy and round

I have zero artistic talent--my drawings are worse than a preschooler's, I haven't written poetry since I was a teenager, I don't play the piano anymore, and I only take snapshots on auto. So fashion is my only creative artistic outlet. Here's a black and white "diptych"--pointy vs. round. I love doing themes and being matchy matchy with my accessories. And everything in the second outfit is the opposite of the first both in color and shape. I had to work this holiday weekend so both are work outfits.

1-3. Pointy:
WHBM white button down blouse
WHBM black and white chevron skirt
WHBM pointy black and silver flats
MK black satchel
Nordstrom chevron bracelet
WHBM black and silver pendant (V shaped and echoes the chain on the shoes)

4-6. Round:
Anne Fontaine black button down blouse
Target cream and black polka dot skirt
Marc by Marc Jacobs cream and black snakeskin polka dot purse
All Black cream and black snakeskin polka dot shoes

WHBM silver round chain bracelet
WHBM black polka dot necklace

7-8. Bonus smiley kiddo pics. DD played in a chess tournament yesterday--she also weaved the bag she is wearing.

    I'm so into black and white skirts right now. I love 1 and 4, and #7 and #8 are adorable.

    I love both outfits!  I seem drawn to black and white lately and like how you put both these outfits together.  The chevrons and pointy toed shoes and then the polka dots and rounded toe shoes are perfect.

    I love both outfits. I always enjoy black and white - sophisticated and elegant. The necklace is stunning.

    Natalie - WOW!! You are so clever. What a fun way to challenge yourself. I like both outfits, but #2 is just amazing. And I cannot believe how your son has grown already. You're both adorable.

    I haven't been following the fashions much so haven't seen your post-baby pics and have to say you look AMAZING.  I love you in B&W and your dots are adorable.  Your babes are adorable too.

    I'd say those three beautiful children are some pretty amazing artistic masterpieces, too!  :)

    Love both outfits, especially the second one!
