How to pair black & white and keep it young

I love my dresses but sometimes they just aren’t practical, which is when the perfect white eyelet top and most comfortable black trousers come to play. For so long I was not a fan of the basic black and white outfits, but my mind is slowing changing and I have to admit it is growing on me! The pairing has always seemed a bit dated and old-fashioned, but like everything you need to find the pieces that work for you and suit your style. For me, I love being comfortable and casual but with a touch of femininity and class – which is why I absolutely adore these pants. I wore them multiple times in the past few months, and they are not on their way out yet! They are under $80 and fit true to size, and if you are like me you might want to roll them in on the inside to make them more cropped.

This eyelet top looked cute online when I ordered it, but I wasn’t sure I was going to love it when it arrived (always that fear of getting something white and too see-through), but you girls will need to trust me when I say it looks a HUNDRED times better in person! It is so light but not at all transparent, the details are just precious and the ruffle sleeves on the shoulders are to die for. I found it on sale for 25% off right here (making it less than $50!).

    Love your style. Everything is so on point. Quick style question, what’s your take on anklets and how and when to wear them?

      Hi Elle! Thank you so much!! I love anklets and actually have worn one a couple times on the blog!! I think if you can find a delicate one you can wear it anytime, and if you are more into statement ones then definitely wear them at the beach or festival or things like that! XO
