Black & White Summer Outfit

Well hello Tuesday! I for one am happy Monday is over and done with. That rain was depressing. Unfortunately the clouds are still hovering, but it’s supposed to burn off this afternoon and be pretty and hopefully warmer. I want summer back! As much as we’ve been talking about fall fashion, I am not ready for the cool weather just yet.

So we actually shot an outfit over the weekend. How about that!?! This pleat front top came in my last Trunk Club, and I am finally getting around to wearing it. Isn’t it funny how that happens sometimes? Usually when I get something new, I wear it right away, but I haven’t had the right occasion for this one yet.

This could be a nice work wear piece (it looks nice layered under a blazer or cardigan) and it also works with jeans for dinner out. I never get tired of a black and white outfit in the summertime, so I paired it with white jeans for a crisp late-summer date night outfit.

This top is thin and soft and has a nice drape to it. It definitely requires a darker bra or you will see through it, but otherwise it doesn’t require an under layer.

I decided to wear white pumps to keep the white going and elongate the line of the leg. Since the top is kind of long, wearing white heels with the white jeans helps balance out the proportions of the outfit.

FYI, these white Paige Verdugo jeans got restocked. If you recall, I’ve been linking to the same style with a raw hem for a while, but the more classic style is back. YAY! I love and adore these white jeans. They have stayed white through many wears and washings and they hold their shape beautifully, but I do advise sizing up. For reference, I have the size 30 in these, and I normally wear 29 in Paige jeans and a 28 in AG and some other brands.

These pumps are by Sam Edelman, and they’re quite comfortable plus they look really good on. I wore them on Saturday night with blue jeans and a printed top for a dinner date with my husband, and I also like them with dresses.

This yellow tassel clutch offers the perfect pop of color to keep the outfit light and summery. It sold out during the #NSale, but just this morning I notice it has been restocked. It also comes in black and grey.

For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the top. It is kind of long, though, under the arms as well as the overall length, so perhaps I could get away with a small. You may want to size down if you tend to run between sizes.

I kept my jewelry simple with a mixed metal pendant necklace and some Alex and Ani bangles, but I was thinking it would be fun to add some more colorful jewelry to this outfit. Yellow statement earrings would be cute!
