A Black and White Summer Look.

Photography by Deeana Kourtney Photography

     The warmer months are my favorite time of the year for fashion trends, mainly because it becomes acceptable to wear bright colors and prints all of the time! I don't really let the fall and winter months stop me from my colorful wardrobe... but I'm sure that I do get looks from time to time when I try and break out my favorite Lilly pieces in January for example. ;-) But in summer, anything goes as far as colorful outfits! 

      As much as I love all of my favorite bright summer outfits, sometimes it's nice to take a day and break out some neutral pieces from time to time. There is always something very crisp and put-together feeling about wearing an all black and white outfit. My black top that I am wearing was a recent Marshall's bargain find. I love how it is simple in the front, and then open and sheer in the back- tops and dresses that come with a little element of surprise like that are always so fun! And these white skinny jeans that I'm wearing are my absolute favorite, and the price point isn't bad either. 

     Today my mom and I are currently on the road driving back to North Carolina from my hometown in Maine! I flew home late Thursday night and spent the weekend at home visiting with family and a couple of my friends. Since we are driving back, I was able to move a lot of things back from home to my new apartment! I am the most excited about having lots of new kitchen things to play with soon... that's when I know I've become an adult. ;-)
