Black & White

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend, and are refreshed and ready for a new week. The weather was perfect in Charlotte, so I spent some time laying by the pool and enjoyed one of those perfect spring nights sitting out by the lake, cold beer in hand.

Today's outfit was inspired by two things, my size and my trip to Europe. I love colors (particularly pinks a reds) but I'm petite and look really young. I feel like I don't do myself any favors when I wear bright colors, especially when I'm in a professional setting. While we were in Europe I noticed how the women in Paris and London tend to stick to dark tones (black, navy etc.) and they looked so polished and chic.

When I first saw these pants I was a bit intimidated. They're black on one side and white on the other, funkier than I typically wear. I paired them with a sheer black and white top and some black pumps and now it's safe to say I love them! I kept the accessories simple and added some berry red lips for a pop of color, to turn this outfit into one you can feel confident wearing in any setting.
