Back to basics: black & white

Black & White 1Hello beauties.  Sometimes there is nothing as effortless and classy as “good ole” black and white.  Love the simplicity of this outfit and the flowers were so beautiful, couldn’t resist the backdrop!

For this post, I paired a short sleeve white shirt with black culottes and black caged heels.  What’s great about the culottes is that you can transition them into fall/winter by simply replacing the white shirt with a long sleeve shirt or sweater.

Tall or ankle boots instead of the caged heels, would be perfect for fall.  If the weather were cooler, I could have kept the outfit as-is but added a black, red or blue leather jacket.  I could have also swapped the caged heels for some bright pumps.

You haven’t seen the last of these culottes! In an upcoming post, will show how the culottes can be transformed into a “fall staple.”  Picture them with patterned tights and ankle boots…More to come:)

As usual, to complete the look, I added a black belt with gold detailing.    Do you like culottes/gauchos? Outfit details below.

Thanks for dropping by! Don’t be a stranger, xoxo
