Casual Classic Black and White

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!  We finally had some sun and no more rain here in North Carolina!  We were able to get in some pool time and were able to get the convertible out of the garage for the weekend.

I wanted to share this casual black and white outfit I wore last week.  Black and white does not have to be dressy or fancy.  I am fortunate to have a casual dress code at work, so this outfit was perfect for a work day when it wasn’t too hot.  You’ll have to overlook that I cut off the top of my head, and the photos are a lot darker than I thought.  No one ever accused me of being a master photographer.


The jeans are Calvin Klein skinny jeans, a very similar pair is still available at Macy’s, here.  I cuffed them once just to add a bit of style and show off my shoes.  The top is a halter style from Loft; it’s last year’s model and I couldn’t find anything similar on their website.  But here and here are other options.

My shoes, which are hard to see, are Sanuk Yoga Slings.  I love Sanuk sandals and flip flops.  They are so comfortable and really durable, and come in a variety of colors and patterns.

You’ll also notice the book on my lap –  it’s actually my Lilly Pulitzer 2018/19 planner.  In this day of everything electronic, it’s nice to have a physical planner.  This one is such a fun design, and comes with stickers to denote certain events, and has tons of space for keeping track of everything and just making notes. offers free economy shipping and returns, and right now they will send a free sheet of extra stickers with any planner purchase.

Have a great week!
