White + Black



For the 3rd post in this series with T.J. Maxx, we are talking about another trend that is HUGE for Spring 2013 - black & white!  These contrasting shades were seen all over the runways in everything from bold stripes, mixed prints & sleek separates.  It happens to be one of my favorite trends for the season (as evidenced by this post), so I was thrilled to put together an outfit with pieces I found at my local store.

This time I decided to go for a sophisticated look that would work both in & out of the office.  I've long been a fan of peplum and this top is the perfect light & airy option for those warmer days when you still want to look polished.  And every girl should have a pair of black slim cropped trousers in her closet - easy to dress up or down & ideal for showing off your favorite pair of heels!  I wanted to add in some metallic accessories to finish off the look & couldn't believe my eyes when I found this gorgeous necklace for less than $30!!  It bears an uncanny resemblance to a designer piece that I had been eyeing, but never could have afforded...just one of the many reasons why I love shopping at T.J. Maxx (the deals are insane)!

This little white peplum is so cute!! It will be the perfect summer piece. And you and I are thinking the same way... I have a post coming up next friday wearing black and white with a little bit of gold in my sandals (which is different from what I normally do). I like the way it looks!

You are so right about the slim cut cropped black pants - I'm still on the hunt for some! I need something a little more tapered than what you have I think because I'm shorter - yours look great on you, though!
