My Black & White Outfit Kick
January is the month for neutrals, at least that is what is trending on social media and online. Do we ever have too much black? That is a question that I have pondered for many years, going all the way back to when I worked in banking. From what I have learned over the years, the answer is no. And even if we did, we would continue to buy black, beige, white, and greys without even blinking an eye. These are staple pieces and we build are wardrobe around the neutral tones to create different looks, from the classics to adding our own twist of color. Today I am sharing the neutrals that are not only front of the closet, but top of the drawers! Hope you enjoy!
This outfit has been a favorite of mine and I love the trendy vibe. I added a Lee denim jacket from Amazon with the shirred henley blouse from Loft. These are Sneak Preview Items and I have found they don’t last for long. This blouse has a romantic feel with blouson sleeves and a cute ballet neck. I am wearing a large in this for reference. See the blouse here. I styled it with the ottoman midi skirt that is also from Loft. This skirt has spandex in it and the fit is amazing! Perfect to wear for workwear or casual weekends that will carry you through the entire year. I am wearing a medium in this, see it here. A more inexpensive option can be seen here.
A better look at the blouse…seriously girls, I am totally recommended this blouse! Wear it at work, to church, or style it with your favorite jeans. You can even step out if you love the trending wide leg corduroy cropped pants to stay on trend. I am loving these from Target right now and will be styling them a few ways this week for you. Target is having a sale right now that ends today, check it out here.
I couldn’t pass up sharing this Time and Tru Dad coat, I have gotten so many compliments on it and I have been wearing it on repeat, from church to styling it with my leggings and sneakers! This Faux Wool Coat is fully stocked in gray and black right now, but the gray/silver…is totally screaming my name! It fits TTS, lined, has pockets on the side and is a great length to wear with skirts or dresses. See the coat here, and I am wearing a large for reference. I styled it with the Ginger Jeans from Pink Lily, I just got these in and I’m already grabbing them more than I should. They have plenty of stretch and wear super comfortable. A friend of mine actually suggested these and I am so glad she did! See the jeans here and use code JANUARY15 for 15% off your order. if you love the fanny pack trend, check out this one I am styling HERE that I found at Walmart.
Isn’t the coat a fabulous Walmart Find? It’s slimming, affordable, and really takes an ordinary outfit up a notch. I have to let you know that the Most Popular Hiking Boots I am wearing are on sale, check the cuties out here.
A lot of you are loving the looser look that is trendy and we all know I am no stranger to this hot little trend. Comfort is what I’m all about and finding ways to style the look with a little twist that suits my age, keeps my outfits up to date, and I don’t look like I’m trying to hard…I’m all in! Add a long cardigan or duster with a cute crossbody and boots with your looser jeans for an up-to-date look that is suitable for going out with the girls for brunch or dinner out with the fam! Outfit details below.
These outfits were the hot winners for the week on social media, everyone has LOVED the shacket and frankly, it has become my new fave. But then gain, every new item seems to become my new fave, lol!
I found this fab shacket on Amazon and this one is lightweight with a quilted lining, it’s long enough for leggings and supper stylish! I am wearing a large in this for reference, see it here. My black jeans are from Target and are now marked down under $20, see them here. They have stretch and fit TTS. My black boots with the chain detail are by Steve Madden and can be seen here. All outfit details are linked below the picture carousel. I highly suggest trying these outfits, cause I am loving them!

I LOVE that henley blouse from LOFT. It really is a versatile blouse. It may find its way into my shopping cart…..
Ann, it’s totally worth it!! I am loving it and it is so versatile and cute lol
I am IN LOVE with the Henley blouse 😍😍😍
Good Snowy Morning Beverly! We were fortunate in my part of Virginia to only get a couple inches . . . but unfortunate that it was topped with ice. I get a work from home day though and was so excited to see a new blog post from you when I checked my email! I’m loving those cream hiking boots and the great sale on them. They seem to go with so many things! Now I’m scouring through belk to see what else you’ve recommended so that I can get to at least $35 for the free shipping! lol Any suggestions??
Love, love the white loft blouse. Thank you for sharing some new ideas. I hope you feel better.
Love neutrals! And loving all the outfits today! So glad you all are feeling better. Have a great week!
Hope you feel better soon. Love the shacket! May have to order that.

Sorry you ended up with the VID! Trends…mom jeans, dad coats…what’s next?? lol I do love that coat, the long cardigan and the long shacket! As I say to my husband, “I would say I love you with all my heart but my butt is bigger!” hahahaha Praying for a speedy recovery! Happy new week Beautifully Dressed and Blessed!
I love to wear black, but it washes me out so I don’t wear it too close to my face! Otherwise, anything goes! Love all the cool, comfy looks. That silver coat is so cute with the boots!
Love this blog and your style! Just a quick question for reference… do most brands work best for you in a Med/Lg? I think I am very close to your body shape/size, and I prefer things not too clingy, unless they are meant to be worn that way. Sizing online can be so confusing when trying to order… each brand seems to have their own guidelines Lol. Sometimes I get it right, and other times I am wayyyy off.
Good Morning☕️ Im loving the loose comfort style. The long cardigan look. I have become obsessed with going to Walmart and scanning tags from my phone and finding a lot of items are cheaper than what the tag says. I found me a half zip animal print hoodie for a dollar. yup you read right a dollar 😱 Have a great Tuesday..
That is awesome! How do you scan them to find out?
ok those corduroys… 🤩 I actually really like the blue but they’re out (OF COURSE) in my size. and I love the white blouse.
Do you ever just look in the mirror and say, “I’m so perfect.” cause you truly are one beauty.
I just saw this! Girl, thank you, but to tell the truth, I don’t like looking in the mirror at all. Even Barry will ask me why I put the phone over my face 😂I see my 8th grade self…
