Black and White and Mixed All Over

Striped Tee: Loft (old, great alternative) // Shorts: Loft (from early summer, love these) // Sandals: Jack Rogers // Long Necklace: Lia Sophia // Anniversary Necklace: Heirloom // Watch: Randy Jackson (old, love this) // Ring: HSN (similar)

Hey y’all! If you’re joining me from the Spotlight Weekly Linkup- WELCOME! I’m so glad to have you here and am thrilled to be co-hosting today! This is just too much fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Now onto the clothesโ€ฆ I’m not very good at wearing “neutrals”- brights are more my thing! But I fell hard for these floral shorts and thought they would be so fun for Florida’s hot transition into fall. Doing a little pattern mixing with the striped shirt kept me bold- even in neutrals! Ya’ll black + cream does not have to = boring!

Also, I’m wearing a very special piece of jewelry today- my grandmother’s 25th Anniversary necklace from my grandfather. My grandma recently gave her grandchildren several heirloom pieces and this was the one I picked- and I love it. I especially love that it has their wedding bible verse on it, “Rejoice in hope”- the perfect reminder for every day.
