saturday style mix – black, white & tassels

Happy Saturday friends! Today’s style mix is all about that black and white. Without a doubt my favorite combo of all time is black and white with gold accessories………..both in interiors and fashion. It’s just a classic combination that is always in style. I love the way black and white looks so effortlessly chic, even when you’re sporting a basic tee and summer skirt.

While I definitely love me a classic white tee, I’m equally crazy for a well fitted basic black. I’m not a huge brand specific girl, but these tees are my absolute favorites (perfect fit and they wash/wear great)!

I’ve been bananas for tassels as of late and basically had to have this fun tassel skirt (which is currently 40% off with code SUMMERSALE and also comes in a dark grey, though I’m partial to the white)!

These heart sunnies have been a summer staple for me over the past couple of years. I think they’re super fun with a casual vibe. Just as with interiors it’s fun to add a bit of the unexpected.

This necklace was a gift, but I LOVE this one and this one for a similar look.

Sarah and I had a blast shooting at Keeneland last Saturday evening. It was the perfect end to my last day as a Lexington resident.

Standing between numbers 5 and 6 just seems like the perfect metaphor for my life right now as that’s exactly where I am at the moment……… between house number 5 and house number 6. Who knows maybe there will be a 7 and an 8 down the line. 😉

This straw tote has been in heavy rotation all summer long (and it’s currently on sale!). I love the big bold stripes and the leather tassel embellishment, plus it’s large enough to hold my wallet, my sunglasses, my make-up bag and my current reading book!

I just don’t think I’ll ever tire of a good black and white mix. I love that while this skirt definitely reads “summer” it could easily transition to fall with a denim jacket or a military vest, these booties and this fringed cross body bag.
