back to basics :: black + white

As I get, ahem, older...I find my style simplifying. I'm drawn to the clean and sophisticated look of black + white, in all areas from home decor to fashion.






There's just something about this combination, it's instantly chic and pulled together.
These looks seem so effortless yet so stylish.

are you loving it too? 
or is it too boring for you?

hope it's a lovely day,
xx

There's nothing like the basic black and white. Sometimes the chicest thing is the simplest casual look.

Yes and yes! I find myself going for more simple styling lately too. For a while it seemed like more is more with stacks of jewelry, layers, colors, etc. Sometimes simple is best.

Me too.....black and white has always been a favorite combination, but now that I'm older...I love the ease, sophistication and simplicity of the black/white or black/cream wardrobe. Love your blog!

You seriously cannot go wrong! Black and white are so classic together.

I've always been a black and white fan- I probably over do it- so I'm trying to add more color to my wardrobe but I will never stop loving that color combo!

Hard to go wrong with classic black + white! So I'm totally on board with ya Mae :)
My outfit in tomorrow's post is actually all black + white. A little boring...but I like it.
Hope you're well!
