Back to BASICS [black & denim]

July 21, 2016

There are so many fun trends to try during Summer that sometimes you neglect the basic pieces in your closet. Off the shoulder, embroidery, pom-poms, and tassels are so much fun to wear that you might ignore those plain solid colors.

So for a fun night out look we put together two simple, classic ensembs that could even transition into some cooler {a girl can dream!} weather.

But not without a few details! Lace-up tops and polka dots take your basic black and white blouses up a notch.




Love that cutout back detail!


Blouse: Zara sale in store {similar here and here}

Denim: Joe’s from Nordstrom Rack {similar here}

Flats: Sam & Libby from Target {similar here but loving these}

Bag: Michael Kors from Marshalls {similar here and here}




Blouse: Target-only $8 on clearance so check your local store! {similar here}

Denim: Asos {exact pair & under $30!}

Heels: Steve Madden from Marshalls {similar here}

Bag: Louis Vuitton {loving this bag}

Sometimes it’s nice to pull together a classic look with some interesting details to make it fun!

Thanks for reading!

    Once again, love both your looks! And you´re absolutely right. Between so many fun things to wear we tend to neglect the basics. Lace up basic shirts are really a must have, love how Kathryn paired it with nude heels. And Kristina´s polka dots shirt is so lovely! I specially love the back, gives it an edgy touch 🙂
