Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to wear palm prints and bright florals. A black and white outfit is a chic no matter what time of year. It always looks stylish and sophisticated, plus it’s perfect for an effortless day or night look. For the most part my clothes are very neutral, so I often gravitate toward this traditional color combo. This drapey, lightweight blouse caught my eye at Old Navy recently and I love how the geometric pattern gives it a fresh twist. The fabric is soft and breezy, so it’s perfect for these hot summer months. Bonus: it travels well and doesn’t end up terribly wrinkled by the time you get to your destination! I wore it with denim shorts while we were in Austin recently (travel guide coming soon!), but it’s also been a staple in my Vegas wardrobe. For an afternoon strolling around Container Park with my husband I paired it with white high-rise skinny jeans—this was before our massive heat wave! However it was still quite toasty, hence the pomegranate Italian soda in my hand. It’s so hot right now that you need to be in a pool or have a cold drink to be outdoors. Even then it feels like you’re stepping into an oven with a hair dryer blowing in your face. Sounds pleasant, right? ;) hope you are all having a great summer so far!
