Happy Friday! I have a special treat for you 🙂
You have got to love social media! I was lucky enough to connect with fashionista and travel blogger Courteney, of inthisfleetingmoment.wordpress.com. We decided it would be fun to tackle some of our favorite Spring 2013 trends! This week, we picked the black and white trend. You saw me style a fun, black and white dress a few different ways earlier this week, and you can see more from that look on her blog, here.
Here is Courteney’s take on the black and white trend, with a twist – transitioning the outfit from day to night:
For the daytime look, I chose my favorite Tee by Free people, I could seriously live in this thing. I want to go back and get it in every color. Anyways, I paired it with my new favorite, what I like to call liquid leggings, or coated black denim pants by Articles of Society and these great over the knee boots.
My key piece I chose to incorporate is this really great fitted jacket, I don’t know if you could necessarily consider it a jacket, since its a great cotton/spandex material, that almost feels like a sweatshirt minus the fleece.. It’s perfect for the weather conditions here in Arizona right now because it is breathable and lightweight for the perfect temperatures we are having during the day and as we drift into evening as the temperatures start to drop a tad. Throw it in your purse and its easy to throw over this look when sitting outside for lunch or happy hour with the girls.

The night time look I chose to turn it a little more sexy than I’ve been used to considering its now bare able to wear shorts or a skirt out at night without tights!
I switched the top with this great skull printed top by Marisol and a high waisted skirt by Forever 21. It’s all about the proportions with this outfit and it works for my body type with the high waisted skirt meeting the jacket right at the waist.
Same goes with the high waisted leather shorts from H&M.
I’ve been dying to take out these peep toe Sam Edelmans since I have a major place in my heart for these studded beauties.
