Welcome with Black & White

This weekend we had our housewarming party.  After weeks of working on small projects, finalizing a menu and prepping the house and yard we were set to welcome our friends and have a good time.  Not a single photo was taken.  I kind of can’t believe that.  It will now exist in the fuzzy realm of my memory.  It was a whirlwind and a totally good time.

I was so busy prepping and planning I forgot to pick out something to wear.  In a last minute frenzy I threw on this black and white pairing.

Black and White Summer Combo


J.Crew Factory Colorblock Tank Top/J Crew Factory Black Chino Shorts (white)/Kate Spade Crystal Pave Studs/Gold Necklace (similar)/Mossimo Gladiator Sandals (similar) (similar)

I went back and forth a bit between the black and white shorts but decided the black would show any sort of party foul less than the white ones.  It was a great time and our house was filled with kids whizzing by, drinks being served,friends getting to see each other after too much time has passed and so much more.  I wish I could do it all again.

In the end, I was comfortable, able to run around when needed and not overheat. When in doubt go the black and white route because it will never fail you no matter what the occasion. I just wish I had gotten some pictures of the house, our friends and each other while in the mix. Don’t worry, there’s already another party in the works.

      Thank you! I can no longer count the number of J.Crew chino shorts I own. I buy 3-4 pairs a summer. I love that they come in 3″, 4″, 5″ and up.

    I did the classic black and white look for church this weekend. I wish I could wear cute tanks like that though. 🙂

    Great choice for your party. Black and White will never go outta style, so classic and I love adding a pop of color to it sometimes. You’d look GREAT in anything pretty lady!!

    I am sure you looked amazing…classic monochrome black is always a win. Glad you guys enjoyed and that you are all getting settled in. I know the last several months have been a whirlwind!
