Black & White

When it comes to summer dressing, our minds tend to shift to all things light and airy. Our color palettes take a turn towards pastel, our fabric selections air on the side of sheer, and our accessories become minimal. While I have no qualms against blush pink and baby blues working their way into my ensemble this time of year, I’m also a little hesitant to let go of some of my most loved accessories from the fall and winter, aka, my little black handbags.

It was a few years ago when I realized just how chic of a combination white and black could be. While I’m not much for mixing solid white and black separates, I am a huge advocate of letting your strappy black sandals from become the perfect pairing for your breezy white sundress from the summer. Not convinced? Next time you throw on your favorite white frock, try pairing it with a black handbag and a block heeled black sandal. The contrast is ├╝ber chic and surprisingly classic.
