Black & White

Top: Madewell, Shorts: J. Crew, Shoes: J. Crew, Necklace: Kendra Scott, Crossbody: Kate Spade (old, similar here)
Okay, I know that I start off almost all my blog posts the same by talking about how obsessed I am with an item but today I really cannot express how in love I am with this top! This shirt is such a perfect transition piece and I will be wearing it straight into fall with black jeans and booties. I love the slits on the side. It gives it a little bit of edge and is adorably unexpected. The material is really lightweight and breezy. I even wore it to work again today with a pair of white pants and just put a black tank underneath to make work appropriate. It is a little pricey, but I think it's worth every penny. Madwell never fails to impress!

I also have to talk a little bit about my hair. I have been really REALLY impressed with the color job this time around. I always have major issues with my color fading almost immediately after the first wash but I haven't noticed any change so far. I am just loving the color and love how healthy my hair looks. My stylist mentioned that the ammonia in the hair dye makes the hair feel a lot softer and healthier. He also used Moroccan Oil Heat Styling Protection in it the day he did my hair and I purchased some while there because I loved the smell. I feel like continuing to use that is also keeping my hair looking a lot healthier. Just thought I would share if any of you experience the same hair troubles I have after getting it colored.

Also, to curl my hair I used the Nume 25 MM Classic Wand. I LOVE this curling iron. I have really thick hair so it takes a really good curling wand for my hair to hold a curl. These curls last 2-3 days and you don't even need to touch them up. Definitely check it out if you're in the market for a new one!

  3. I agree - the slits on the side really do give this an edge and it'll be great in the fall because you can just layer something underneath!! Really cute and can't go wrong with black and white! xo, biana -BlovedBoston
