So simple and yet so cute together: a white blazer, black top and dark denim. As much as I love tons and tons of visual interest in an outfit, I'm often in the mood for and can appreciate a clean palette as well. (Not to mention adding some layered necklaces helps spice it up a little!) Today's inspiration is rocking this look - I especially like her jeans. I would also pair this idea with black flats and a panama hat, or black pants for work!

I found the idea for today's outfit while searching for images of potential cities to visit on our upcoming trip to Europe. Instead of a pleated red skirt, I thought why not pair a red top I already own with a pleated skirt in another color, and add a fun purse? The result is so festive, and one of my favorite outfits, ever. And while I won't be wearing it on our trip, I'll certainly be finding a use for it here at home!

Anyone else seriously craving the beach lately?! Summer can't get here fast enough, and finding this cute dress recently is not helping my patience! It's an off-shoulder, tie-sleeve striped number with a beach-y, preppy vibe. Paired with a big sun hat and wedges it's easy, breezy and so perfect for a lunch date or errands. What styles are on your summer wish list?
