Outfit Of The Week: Black & Gold

{H&M Dress (similar here and here), Michael Kors Tote (similar here), Armani Exchange Sunglasses (similar here), Steve Madden Sandals}

I love a good mix of black and gold together. It's hard for me to resist things (like purses and shoes) that display both in the same accessory. On my last shopping trip to Chicago (last year for my birthday) I stumbled across this dress all by itself. Luckily it fit and has proven to be a great piece to have. I've worn it with flats to shop, out to dinner, for a wedding (I was requested to wear black), and I wore it yesterday to church.

Outfit Of the Week: White Out

{Calvin Klein Cardigan, Gap Dress, Louis Vuitton Clutch, Converse Sneakers}

I finally broke down a few weeks ago and bought a pair of white sneakers. Typically when I buy shoes they are usually adorable flats, dressy sandals, or heels. I'm loving this (sneaker) shoe trend I have watched from afar for the past couple of years, and I'm so glad I finally embraced the look. Inspired by this and this I decided to pair mine with a white dress for a monochrome look. 

Because of the rain (something that typically happens when I wear all white) we shot these images on our balcony as we watched the rain come down.

Outfit Of The Week: Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

{Gap Cardigan, Old Navy T-shirt (similar here and here), American Eagle Jeans (similar here), Chanel Wallet, Steve Madden Heels (similar here)}

Distressed boyfriend jeans are one of my favorite looks for spring. I bought these jeans several years ago and I'm loving them more and more. One trick I've noticed is learning how to style the cuff. As you can see from this similar pair, a quick change of the cuff makes for a whole new look. No mater how you roll them, the cuff always looks best when kept above the ankle.

Outfit Of The Week: Double Denim

{Kenneth Cole Sunglasses, Banana Republic Top (similar here) and Skirt, Dooney and Bourke Purse (similar here), Steve Madden Shoes}

One of my favorite looks is head to toe denim. For the past year, I have quite regularly worn some combination of this look. There's just something about the color blue that's so easy to wear, and I love having a fail safe look I can fall back on. Jeans are known to pair with anything, so why not another denim piece? My favorite way to wear the look is combining two different shades of blue.

Outfit Of The Week: Maxi Dress

 {Urban Outfitters Jacket, Vfish Dress, Cynthia Rowley Sunglasses, Gifted Bracelet, Giani Bernini Clutch, Essie 'Clambake' Nail Polish, Steve Madden Heels}

As you may have figured out by now I love a good masculine look with just a touch of something feminine. I can usually be found wearing jeans and a blouse dressed up with heels or down with flats. I came across this dress a few weeks ago and fell in love. I love a good maxi dress and its fun wearing something a little different every now and then.

Outfit Of The Week: A Long Jacket

{Kenneth Cole Sunglasses, Moda International Blazer, Gap Tank, Urban Outfitters Jeans, Kate Spade Purse, Steve Madden Heels}

I'm loving the long coat trend I've been seeing for a while now. I came up empty handed in my search this winter for a long wool camel coat, but I did however stumble across this blazer. It helps elevate the most simplest of looks and unlike the wool coat this is a jacket I can wear all year long.

Outfit Of The Week

{Gap Top (similar here) & Pants, Gifted Scarf, Michael Kors Purse, Guess Booties}

I trust everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. My husband and I enjoyed several long walks with our dog (now that the weather is warming up), good food (and company) at his parents' house, along with some much needed time off. These black pants are one of my go-to's for staying comfortable while still looking pulled together. Perfect for a day spent lounging around. Happy Easter!
