I've been noticing so much black and white in the stores, in advertising, and on blogs. Even though it's really trending right now, I have always been a fan of classic black and white!
I've had this black and white knit skirt for years. It's one of the few items I received from Stitch Fix that stood the test of time (sorry Stitch Fix). I've shown it to you many times before HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
Other than adding color through accessories, I have never worn this skirt with anything other than white or black on top. I tried, but I never felt comfortable with it. I prefer the clean and simple look of black and white, and bringing in a spot of color through accessories.
For this look, I used a simple white scoop neck tee from a.n.a. The neckline is very flattering for all figures. I did wear a camisole under mine as it was kind of thin and see-thru. I love thin t-shirts because I find them more comfortable to wear, but I know not everyone is a fan of them. I think the young ones wear those pretty lace bralettes under them, so they don't mind the sheerness of the fabric.
I wore this outfit to church, lunch, and then shopping.
I decided to glam up the casual tee a bit with this sparkly statement necklace.
My sandals are Adrienne Vittadini Claud Gladiator Sandals from DSW. Would you believe these sandals are one of their top selling sandals? After having them for awhile, I can see why. They are so comfortable! I was wearing them while I was shopping and a young gal said "I love your sandals, where did you get them? I've been looking for a pair like that forever. I want something comfortable yet stylish." I thought her comment was spot on. They are comfortable and stylish, who says shoes can't be both?
I brought a little bit of color with this mint green cross body bag that was a gift from my daughter. I added more silver with silver bracelets and rings. I wore white sunglasses to coordinate with the black and white clothes.
You've often heard me say that I won't wear anything that isn't comfortable. But that doesn't mean I want to live in sneakers and active wear (which is unfortunately a trend I keep seeing everywhere). I think we can dress up, and still feel at ease by choosing cozy fabrics like soft knits, stretch denim, etc., and comfortable, yet stylish footwear.
Have a Great Day! Amy
