Raiding My Sister's Closet: Black and White

Black and white is apparently a really hot combo right now (obviously no one has thought of black and white before 2014). 

I bought a pair of white pants last year at H&M for $10 and . . . .they were not great. 

This year, I bought a pair from Aeropostale, for the costly sum of $18 and. . . I love them so much. 

Right now, I'm really into clothing that dresses up or down easily, and these jeans are perfect for that. A pair of flat sandals and a t-shirt, and they are super casual.

Add heels a necklace and a jacket or sweater, and they look a lot fancier.

Shirt: Shade // Jeans: Aeropostale // Wedges: Payless
Jacket: Old Navy // Necklace: r-ki-tekt // Bag: c/o JoTotes

Also, I like to keep my black and white combos pretty simple. It's sometimes tempting to add a bunch of color to offset it, but I prefer to add a neutral (like this denim jacket or some cognac leather) and a tiny touch of color.

In this case, I went with a simple mint necklace (you can see it in the top picture).

I also stuck with a simple black bag instead of adding more color in.

Check out Merrick and Landen's black and white outfits:


  1. Cute black and white outfit! I really need to get me some white pants. Yours are way cute. Found your blog thru merricks blog. Keep the cute styles coming.

  2. I am such a fan of your denim jacket! I'm kicking myself daily for never wearing the one I had in high school, and not even owning one now!

  3. I like how Stranger Danger is behind you in that next-to-last picture, also in black and white with a pop of color. :) Also, I know this probably isn't the place, but I want to thank you for recommending "Edenbrooke" by Julianne Donaldson. I checked it out from my local library and finished it in one day! Loved it!

  4. you're cheating on my sunglasses! :(

  5. Nice and chic outfit :)

  6. Great combo, but HOW do you keep them CLEAN?? I bought a pair of striped black and white flats and after two weeks they have scuffs on them. How in the world do you keep these suckers white when you have children and practical life? (Choose carefully the days you wear them?)
