Black & White Inspiration

black and white outfits

I have been on a major black and white kick lately. All my latest clothing purchases have been black or white. Maybe a little gray here and there. Some people might find it boring, but head-to-toe black and white just feels so effortlessly cool.  A loose-fit white button down and a pair of black skinnies has been my go-to outfit. If I feel like a pop of color, I’ll throw on a pair of colorful flats or switch to a bright purse.

Dark and Stormy: Swimsuits

suits: 1 / 2 / 3

After what has been an uncharacteristically warm June, we have been troubled the past couple days with rain here in the Bay Area. In honor of the less-than-sunny skies, here are a couple swimsuits I’m loving, which aren’t the traditional neon string bikinis of Summer. Not only would these suits be flattering, but I love that their straps aren’t super thick, so you won’t accidentally get crazy tan lines. The best part is, however that you can get a discount on all of these great suits, plus many other clothing items thanks to some super summer sales and deals happening right now!

  • Madewell: pay $60, and you will get $100 to spend on anything in the store with Refinery29’s deal.
  • J. Crew: get 25% off your purchase with code LOVEJCREW
  • Anthropologie: the Anthro summer tag sale means some items are on sale up to 50% right now. You better believe I scooped up that suit, as soon as it was available on backorder!

P.S. I found out that Shopbop is also having a sale, with 25% off all sale items. You can check out their on-sale swim suit selection here.
