"I like being a woman, even in a man’s world. After all, men can’t wear dresses, but we can wear pants.” - Whitney Houston

Welcome back FI readers!

We meet again Saturday. It's been a beautiful week celebrating my lil girl's birthday. I appreciate all the messages an well wishes. I showed her the over 600 likes and over 400 comments on my Facebook post for her birthday and she felt pretty special. Tell you what, you are the real MVPs and I couldn't thank you enough for making her day even more special with all the good will. Blessings always.

Achromatic looks are so fun and when it’s white I can’t help but think 'Oh So Refreshing'! Whether it’s in the form of sleek suiting, summers new crop of fabulous white dresses and skirts or even a white on white look with slacks and top, they are as unique as they are chic. 

That explains why A listers are embracing the white out as their off duty look of choice. Wait a minute, haven’t we seen white being served heavily on the red carpet as well? Totally! Julienne Moore, Faith Hill, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Aniston, America’s darling Lupita Nyongo and even Lady Gaga who broke the monochrome with a pair of popping red gloves to name a few, all at the Oscars 2015. Modern elegance! 

And if ur thinking whites are seasonal and there's no need to invest in them, hold your horses 'cos white ain’t just a summer outfit shade anymore. It cuts across seasons. Winter white is real and fabulous after all. So rock this between labor day / memorial day and anytime after.

My white out look just like some I’ve seen around, done very tastefully are great examples of how to serve this trend. I paired my pants with a ribbed light weight white sweater with side button detailing and a fold over neck. It has a slightly different shade that made for great contrast and also added depth. For some reason this look screams Jennifer Lopez. Don’t remember if I’ve seen her whited out or I’m just imagining it to be her style, hehe.

Rocking a stylish white out look soon? To that all white Summer party you’ve been invited to? Up the glam factor by adding an equally stylish clutch for a fashion forward finish. Top off your fabulous minimal or not so minimal ensemble with a pair of great heels. A match made in fashion heaven! 

CAUTION!! Curve hugging white outfits tend to show every bump and lump down to cellulite. A lot of gals shy away from clingy whites for this reason. But hey, if you don’t want to be limited to the loose fitting silhouettes then spanx up darling and look as smooth as melted chocolate in that curve hugging number, hehe.

What's your take on this trend? Are you ready to do a closet detox to make room for whites this summer?  
I apologize for the many pictures, my laptop definitely has a mind of it's own this morning and has refused to cooperate.
