A Study in Black and White

I'm starting to notice a pattern and the pattern indicates I like black and white and especially houndstooth. Since I don't have a camera,  I am relying on my iPhone for pictures. I just discovered the picstitch app on my phone and I have been using it to create photo montages .

On a somewhat related note, the person who broke into our house was caught and the police did recover our camera, but nothing else at this point. The camera, much to my surprise, contained pictures of the thief engaged in many nefarious acts. Hopefully when the detectives are done with the case and the camera it will be brought back, although quite frankly I think I am ready for a new one. I needed a new camera anyway so this robbery will serve as the impetus to go camera shopping sometime in the near future.

Getting back to my study in black and white, here are some of my most resent houndstooth acquisitions over the last couple of months. I love that for fall so many classics such as houndstooth are in abundance. One can never have too many hounds! Here are my selections which I hope to feature in more detail later on in by blog: 


1.  Rain Boots: Sperry Top-Sider Pelican Too in Houndstooth $39.99 (Found at Nordstrom Rack but also available here)
2. Skirt: J. Crew Factory Leather-Trim Skirt $79.99 (here)
3. Shoes: Houndstooth Flats from Marshall's $19.99
4. Blazer: Houndstooth Merona Oxford Blazer $34.99 (here)

While I might enjoy taking photos of my fashion, houndstooth or otherwise, my favorite subject is most certainly William. He is naturally black and white so that's just perfect for me. William also looks great in every picture as he is also naturally photogenic. I wish I could say that about myself! 


  1. I'm glad you've been able to get at least something recovered - though I'd want to get a new camera now too!

  2. I can't get enough of houndstooth! Thanks for your kind wishes about the break in. It was definitely a scary experience.


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
