Black And White Chic And A Special Visitor

Black And White Chic And A Special Visitor

My son has returned from his European vacation with friends and he is now home for the summer.  He started working full time as an intern at a real estate development company this week and he will be taking an online class during the summer as well, so he will be super busy. But just having him home after work and being able to spend some one on one time with him, makes me super happy.

Last Saturday night he decided to join us for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. We had to do a photo shoot for the blog before dinner, so I convinced him to join me in a couple of the photos during the shoot – you can see the photos below as part of my blog story today.

As for my outfit, I am showing you an easy yet chic black and white look today that is perfect for a summer day or night.  The White Peasant Blouse with Lace Cuffs and Black Vest with Tassel Trim are both super versatile pieces.  Not only because they are black and white but you can wear each piece with a casual outfit or dress them up a little like I have done today.

One of the reasons I chose to do a dressier look was because we were going to dinner afterwards.  The other reason was I really wanted to do an outfit with a skirt for a change. I know that I do a lot of pant outfit style features, but this is mainly because I prefer to wear more pants than skirts in general.  I am sure this is true for many women but with summer practically here it is time to start wearing more skirts, shorts and dresses.

The White Peasant Top is really pretty, soft and easy to wear. It has a slightly belled long sleeve with a beautiful lace trim as the cuff. The Black Vest with Tassels is also an easy yet fun piece with cute tassel trims that run all the way on the sides and bottom of the vest.  I tried to show the tassels as much as possible in the photos and even did a walking photo so you can see the tassels in action.

To finish off the look I added a brand new necklace that is made out of an adjustable Black Suede String with 3 Matt Gold Clovers and Black Suede Fringe. All three pieces work really well together and compliment each other perfectly. I wore them with my black short skirt, black wedges and Gucci bag.
