.Black Boxes.









Blouse, Anthropologie // Jeans, 7 For All Mankind via Nordstrom  {old, similar here & here} // Flats, Old Navy {not online, splurge or save// Purse, Tory Burch {on sale at Nordstrom but not online, similar here, here & here} // Necklace, c/o Socal Gems // Bracelets, c/o Sage K. & Co., Jcrew {old, similar here & here} // Sunnies, Charlotte Russe {not online, similar here}

There will always be a place in my heart & wardrobe for a classic pair of dark skinny jeans, a chic black top, flats, a statement bag, and lots of sparkle. I really have stepped out of my style comfort zone this past year and fully embraced color with open arms, but I have to tell you I will always be a black & white girl deep down. I get it from my mama, along with a lot of other great traits :) This past weekend her and I were shopping at Fashion Valley when we popped into Anthropologie. As much as I LOVE that store, my wallet does not. I have a routine and it involves me darting straight to the sale section. Saturday they were having 15% off and I had a gift card....game on!! I could have easily purchased the whole store, but the one thing I was not parting ways with was this blouse. From the moment I put it on, I never wanted to take it off. It has a silky lining that is seriously heavenly, but on top of that is just adorable with jeans, flows perfectly, and makes my girly side very happy. I love the way it looks with jeans, but I can't help but picture it with tights and my gold sequin skirt for the holidays! This blouse is going to pay its self off and that makes the bargain shopper in me very, very happy!

On a side note run, don't walk, RUN to your nearest Charlotte Russe. You need these glasses!! I nearly screamed when I found these sunnies for $5 in their accessory department. They are almost  identical to the Oliver Peoples version, but oh just $300 cheaper!! You seriously can't beat that. Sadly they don't have them online, so I can't link them up but they should be in the store!

XOXO, Kayla

  1. i am just swooning over that top, the details make it so exceptional even though it is a simple black tank! i never would have pegged you for a black + white girls because ever since i have "known" you, you have rocked the colors so well, but i must say, you pull it all off perfectly. this look is great on you!

    also, that bag, oh em gee, such a pretty one!!

    1. You and me both!! It's unique and not like anything I have in my closet. I also think it will transition perfectly into the cooler months with tights & boots! You'd be surprised, more than half my closet is black & white! I made it my mission this past year to incorporate more color and I'm hooked!! I die for this bag, one of the best deals from the Nordy's anniversary sale!!

    1. Right?! It's one of those tops that it's nice to have on hand in case you get invited somewhere and have nothing to wear!
