OOTD: Black and White and Things I Love


I know it's summer but I really just like black.  Ha ha!  I'm also a big fan of wearing neutrals with only one color.  Today I wore black and white but tried a little bit to be "colorful" with my accessories.  I mean, I didn't try hard!


I'll start with my sandals because they are my new favorite thing that I own.  I got them at Nordstrom Rack about a month ago, I think.  These sandals were the prize I got for looking for casual and strappy black sandals for two years.  The brand is MIA and they are super comfortable.


I also really like pants.  Maybe I'm getting sick of summer because the other day I was looking at shoes on Pintrest and I realized I kept looking at boots and autumn outfits.  I should probably figure out how to get over that since I've got at least another month and a half of heat over here.


The white tee makes this look a little more summery and I actually am not wearing a tank top under it.  It's mostly opaque.  I can kind of see the top of my pants through the shirt but it's doesn't look too weird in real life.  This tee is from Old Navy.  I think it's always a pain to find white shirts that are thick enough to deal with this issue.


For my, not very popping, pop of color I've got my favorite handbag.  It's by Fossil and the olive green leather is so soft.  It was soft to begin with but I've had this bag for years and it's been through a lot.  Once a bottle of water opened up inside of it and it filled up like a bucket so there is a really faint line around the whole bag.  There was also this time that a bunch of hot pink paint spilled on it but I got all of that off.


Jewelry can be kind of hard to wear in the summer because everything just feels gross and sticky.  I wore a black, white and yellow cuff bracelet because otherwise my outfit was really boring.  Plus, I really like this bracelet but the yellow doesn't seem to go with very many things in my closet so I don't wear it that often.


Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara
Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm  -  apple a day 300

To go with my totally unbrushed hair I only put on mascara and lip gloss.  Maybelline's Colossal mascara is really nice.  I might like it better than their Falsies mascara, but I'm not sure yet.  I've only been using it for a short time but I think it is less clumpy than the Falsies formula.  This Almay lip gloss smells SO good.  It's very slightly on the orange side of red.  Like my bracelet, I don't seem to find outfits to wear this with but I really like it.
