Black and White

A simple black and white outfit but, right on trend for spring!


I wore this with a short sleeve tweedy jacket and a lady-like bag.



Now, looking back, I prefer the way it looks with just the silk blouse and linen pants.




The pants are a little slouchier than I intended, they've been in my closet a while and I'm 5 pounds down in my weight which is visible here.


Angled pictures and cool studded ankle strap heels. Just the edge I needed.


Blouse: Banana Republic (100% silk)-thrifted
Pants: Michael Kors-old (2005)
Bag: Aldo-thrifted
Jacket: hand-me-down from MIL
Heels: Target

Feeling okay after last Friday's chemotherapy slight nausea and the associated aches and pains with the Taxol treatment drug and Neulasta bone marrow stimulant. Thank you for all of your continued support and prayers.

  1. Cute sandals and blouse. You amaze me and inspire me with your creativity and energy. You always look fabulous!
    Did you work during your treatments? I've hoped you have taken time off. As in months off.

    1. I took a leave of absence in February when I had surgery and the oncologist has not allowed me to go back to work during my chemo treatments. I am amazed by the women who do go through it and work! I don't think I could.
      I am hoping to return to the university for the fall semester, we shall see. I still have seven weeks of radiation (5 days/wk) to complete after chemotherapy and a month between to allow my body to regain strength. Now, I am living one-day-at-a-time. Thank you for your continued support and virtual love.
