Black and White – Wearable Weather Insurance!

Hi everyone , hope you’re having a good day!

Question to you: Have you ever woken up on a Spring day, dressed yourself in a super light pastel colour, gone out and found everyone else wearing dark colours.?

I have – more often than not it’ll be because it’s one of those days that starts super sunny, turning into a cold grey day by mid day – ok sometimes it’s my own fault for not looking at weather forecast beforehand, but I’m convinced this has happened to us all – smile!

Exactly that is the reason Black & White is a Necessary Spring Staple!blackrabbitphoto_yvonne 7_finals-2-2

It’s like having “wearable weather insurance” – if it’s a hot day you’re fine because of all the white and if the weather turns during the day you are fine too because of the black!blackrabbitphoto_yvonne 7_finals-5-2

You can add a back pack to trend it up a bit – or team it with a more classic tote.

Best of all Black and White is a colour combination that never dates and easy to combine with anything else that’s sitting in your wardrobe!

  1. Love this Yvonne and if there’s one thing I learned about living in EU it’s that you can wear black all year round! And I think there is nothing more chic than black & white. Love that hat too!! Perfect for summer
