A Black & White Color Combination

zoomed icut offbw 9bw 12bw 5bw 7In this outfit post, I’m mixing one of my favorite color combinations along with two of my favorite past-times: off the shoulder tops and chokers.

You can never go wrong with a timeless and classic color combo like black and white, but chokers and off the shoulder tops on the other hand, are fashion trends that have really made a comeback this year. If it were up to me though, off the shoulder tops are one of the few fashion trends I would actually like to see stick around. There’s just something really sexy about bare shoulders and a collar bone; nothing wrong with showing a little skin.

My black distressed skinny jeans by PAIGE were another “treasure find” at TJ Maxx a few months back and they’re definitely a closet staple. The denim fabric is super soft and the ripped knees give this look just the right combination of flirty and edgy when paired with black ankle strap heels. You can tuck the shirt in for a more polished look, go casual with a pair of white or black sneakers or switch it up between black or nude pumps and ankle booties when it gets cooler out.

Jeans and a Cute Top Shop

pink shirt outfit10 editWhile Jenna and I were galavanting through the streets of downtown Wheaton during our little fashion shoot, we stumbled upon a ladies fashion boutique called Jeans and a Cute Top Shop. Ironically, I was dressed in a pair of jeans and cute top so we decided to stop in front of the store for a quick photo op (hence the title of this post).

Now, it isn’t necessarily my intention to put together an outfit that is inspired by the fashion trends from the 70s era, but rather my love for flare jeans, wedges and stacked heels will just never go away. So here I am, looking like I stepped out of the 70s, yet again, in my high-rise flare jeans and lace top.

This J. Crew Raindrop scalloped lace top in blush pink was actually a recent find at Marshalls and it pairs well with almost anything, including light or dark wash denim, white, navy or black pants, skirts or shorts. The soft blush color and detailing make this shirt especially feminine and while it retailed for $110, I snagged it for only $19.99. Who doesn’t love a great deal?! My Levi’s flare jeans were a find at T.J. Maxx earlier this season for only $17.99 and the light wash is perfect for spring and summer. These are my first pair of Levi’s and I absolutely love the silhouette and how my derrière looks in them so I’ll definitely be shopping for another pair of Levi’s soon.

I accessorized with rose gold hoop earrings, platform slingback sandals and my iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 to complete the look.
