Black + White Color Block Dress

TGIF! Here at Casa Pink and Green, we're getting ready for a "major snow event." Every model that I've seen puts us right in the bulls eye of the action. I'm grateful that the snow is going to fall over a weekend so hopefully we won't have to miss too much snow. I remember about 5 years ago when something similar happened, we were out of school for a week. In my mind, it's much better to enjoy more free days of summer than to have a "snow day" in 20 degree, snowy weather that keeps me trapped at home! Stay warm and dry if you live in the affected areas.

Yes...that's me in the 24 to 36 zone!


Sometimes horizontal stripes are not a good choice for my body type, but careful color block stripes in just the right places slim and flatter any body type. I love the combination of black and winter white in this cozy knit long sleeve color block dress. The fabric is almost like a sweater knit, but is substantial in weight, keeping it's shape all day long. After carefully reading the website reviews, I chose a size medium and the fit is perfect for me. I paired the dress with super opaque tights that remind me more of a thick legging than a tight. Finally, comfort is key since I'm standing for the majority of the day while I teach. These comfortable shoes feel like I'm walking on air!

  1. So cute! You look great in it! Very flattering!

    1. Thank you so much, Debbi! It's so incredibly comfortable...and warm. Stay safe if you're in the path of the winter storm.

  2. Now that I see it full-on, your hair is super flattering and shows of your cute dresses better. Thank you for also showcasing the tights. Just ordered a pair!

    1. Thanks, Carol! I'm happy with my shorter's so much faster to style and dry. You're going to LOVE the tights. I prefer tights that are completely opaque instead of tights that are semi-sheer. Hugs!
