Black & White Outfits for Day or Night!

 

I love black and white for day or night in the late Spring and early Summer.  When I wear a black and white outfit I instantly feel chic.  Here are my picks for a terrific black and white outfit for day or night!

Day to Night

 As soon as I laid eyes on this image from Chicismo, I knew I had to blog about it.  I just loved the artistry of it; The stripes in the model’s top seem to correspond to the arched bridge behind her.  I love the way the pleated Skater Skirt flares out and creates a balance for the top.  The clutch is the perfect accessory — the rounded rectangular shape not only mimics the curve of the short

Do you remember when these Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats were all over the fashion pages? I love, love, love them and much like kitties themselves, they seem to be all over the place in all types and varieties once again, this season!

Capri at Nordstrom for $565/Pink Silk at Farfetch.com for $685/Glittery for $695 & Sleeping at net-a-porter.com for $595.

Friday Finds – Home Decor Ideas

This week’s Friday Finds is all about home décor ideas.    We’ve slowly been making updates to our home and the room we’re concentrating on right now is our teenage daughter’s room.   It turns out that I’m not the only one who is finding my decorating style — my daughter is, too.   For the most part, our styles are similar, well, as similar as they can be given the fact that I’m the parent and she’s the teen!

Here are some of  my favorites, based on the items we’re drawing inspiration from:

What I Wore: Tank Tops & Skinny Jeans

What I wore last week on vacation was tank tops and skinny ankle length jeans!

Okay, this is not the best picture of me for two reasons, a) my head is missing and b) it’s grainy.  This is my first attempt at blogging a picture of myself and well,  1) I’m shy and 2) for whatever reason my daughter’s iPhone wasn’t behaving– maybe it had to do with poor lighting at the time?  Oh, well!

Anyway, before leaving for vacation, my daughter and I were running errands and on the way home, I made a quick decision to run into Nordstrom Rack.

What I Wore to Dinner – Donna Morgan Shift Dress

Back in May, I had a special dinner to attend.  It wasn’t dressy, but it wasn’t casual either, so it was a challenge to find a dress that would  work for the occasion.  I decided to wear this Donna Morgan Shift Dress, which I’d bought earlier in the Spring.  The one pictured here is available at Amazon.com.  I really liked the style of this dress when I tried it on and fortunately for this 50-
