Sequins and Sea Breezes: East vs West Coast: Black + White

East vs West Coast: Black + White

4/24/2014


It's that time of the month again! Time to face off again against the fabulous Paige from Life's A Party Dress Like It to see how the East vs West Coasts style the black and white trend. I can't believe this is mine and Paige's third collaboration already! It sneaks up on us so fast! Loving Paige's stylish sparkle top paired with that sexy leather skater skirt and those shoes... wow! Totally perfect for a date night or night out with the girls! If you haven't checked out Paige's blog you totally should! Girl is living the glam live over there in LA and I'm totally jealous, I mean seriously, how awesome is her roof top patio?!?
{You can check out Paige's outfit details here}

 
For my outfit I stayed on the more casual end pairing a black and white snakeskin print top from the new H&M Conscious Collection with a pair of white skinny jeans. I love that this top has a silky feel too so it's not super casual and can easily be dressed up but is still flowy and comfortable so you can wear it during the hot summer months without feeling like your suffocating. This top would also be super cute with a pair of colored skinny jeans to add that pop of color but since this outfit was all about the black and white I stuck with white which works since white skinny jeans are one of my favorite Spring staples. I topped off the look with my favorite pair simple black heels, some black and gold jewelry and of course my black Ray-Ban Wayfarers.


I absolutely love black and white together because of the classic timelessness of it. Black and white together is a trend that will never go out of style, it's been popular since the 60's! In a complicated world there's something reassuring about the simplicity and cleanliness of black and white that I love. Not to mention how no matter what you're wearing you always manage to look chic and sophisticated in black and white.
