Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore in Scottsdale when I was there for a conference a couple weeks ago.
Ironically, they were having an unusual cold spell while I was there, and it was about 45 degrees the day we shot these pictures. And then to top it off, it had been raining off and on all day, but thankfully the sun decided to peek its beautiful face through the clouds just before our scheduled photo shoot. We were so relieved!
I do have some bad news for you, though. This blouse is almost sold out. I’m sharing the outfit anyway because you can pretty much recreate this look with any black blouse, and I have a strict policy never to waste a photo shoot. Haha!
So let’s discuss this look! I love a black and white outfit in the springtime… okay, who am I kidding? I like black and white anytime.
You can take any black blouse or black sweater, or even a black t-shirt, and put it with white jeans and it suddenly looks fresh.
Here are some other options for black tops that make nice transition pieces, if you’re in the market for something:
But the best thing about a black and white outfit is the footwear choices are practically limitless.
Add a pair of shoes in a fun color as I did here and here, wear black shoes and add a pop of color with your handbag as I did here, or go with a neutral shoe to extend the line of the leg and keep the attention up top.
OR add a pair of shoes in a black and white print to pull the black and white outfit together!
These cheetah print flats are so fun, and they’re also remarkably comfortable! I love the gold ring detail.
As for the rest of the outfit, I wore a few delicate gold necklaces with my double hoop earrings and carried a black clutch.
This bag is on major sale right now, by the way. It’s reduced to $90, down from $225, which is pretty amazing! It’s a gorgeous leather bag, and you can have it initialed for an extra $15. Mine was gifted to me a few years back at a conference I attended, and it’s become a great closet basic I turn to again and again.
I also added a blingy bracelet when I swapped out the flats for pumps.
