Summer Black + White

bw

Many think that summer is all about vibrant colors, popping prints and glowing ensembles in general.  However, we can’t forget about the old-faithful color combo – black and white!  Yes, this can be done in the summer months and can look put-together and cool (even in sweltering temps).  All you need is a few shorter hems and some breezy material and you’ve got yourself a classic summer look.  Take a look at the inspiration below for fabulous summertime blacks and whites!

So, you know that one item that can instantly change an outfit?  It can take you from “meh” to “oh, look at her!”  It totally transforms a look and adds immediate sass and personality.  You’re probably thinking of a gorgeous statement necklace, a pair of red-hot heels or a luxurious bag.  But, I bet you weren’t thinking about a pair of sunglasses – leopard sunglasses, in fact.  If you weren’t thinking about them before you will now!  Just picture it : leopard (in appropriate amounts) = fierceness.  And sunnies give that factor of mystery and Hollywood all in one.  Add all of that up and you have an outfit-maker, my friend!  Just make sure you hold your head high when you strut your stuff with these adorning your face.  Better be sure to also open your eyes while that head is held high to make sure there IS sun out.  Nothing is more strange and “ugh, honestly the sunglasses at night thing is so over” than wearing sunnies sans the actual sun.

Inspiration Post

Every now and then I want to do a random inspiration post of images that have really grabbed me lately.  They will be mostly style/fashion inspiration but I’m spontaneous!  I’m sure they’ll get better from here 🙂 Enjoy!
