Friday's Fancies: Black & White

(Image: Source unknown, found here)

I love a good dose of black and white. It's the most classic of color combinations but can quickly be brought to life with a little pop. I (unconsciously) put together an entire outfit of black and white for work yesterday and got so many compliments on it. And the best part? It looks great on everyone!

Below I've put together a black and white ensemble that could easily transition from day-to-night. Pull in a some mint accessories and you are totally on-trend for spring!


Friday's Fancies: Black and White
Top, DOROTHY PERKINS // Pants, J. CREW // Heels, L.A.M.B. // Bag, KATE SPADE
Necklaces, BAUBLEBAR // Polish, ESTEE LAUDER // Lipstick, ESTEE LAUDER

PS - I've only had a three day work week! We're out again today for severe winter weather and icing. I can testify to the icing as I nearly slid down my driveway going to the mailbox this morning!

Happy Friday!

I feel the exact same way about black and white. So classic and so easy to add some punch to. Love how you achieved it through beauty. :)

Have a great weekend, Julie and be careful! xoxo

Black and white can really do no wrong. I always find that it gives me a boost of confidence. So I love the outfit you put together.

Be careful with the weather, though I know how that goes. Minnesota has been crazy freezing lately.

Have a great weekend!

I know! My friends totally tease that "black and white can't be your favorite color," but it totally is. Love the peplum top!
