Black and white

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Call me classic, but black and white always looks elegant and chic.

Wearing a new top that I just got at Lord and Taylor...I love the crocheted detail trim, and the fact it's on sale!

I paired the tee with Fabrizio Gianni's white cropped jeans, which have an amazing fit. A turquoise ring adds a touch of color--similar here.

 Fabrizio Gianni's black denim jacket is one of my wardrobe staples. The fabric is soft and stretchy making it extremely comfortable and just the right weight for the warmer months! 

This slub hat is from Nordstrom. The grey version is on sale for just $18.98! It's a fabulous hat for the money.

Comfy white sneakers are perfect with jeans, shorts or a casual dress. I've been living in these lately. 

I got this metallic JuJu Bagz tote for my recent trip to The Bahamas, but I've been using it as an every day bag. It's incredibly sturdy, stylish and super versatile!

Richard, the hubster, shot these photos for me. He's becoming my "stand-in" photographer. We had a lot of laughs playing with the life sized chess set at Crane's Estate in Ipswich, MA.

Notice the black and white theme going on here? This was NOT planned--really!
