All Things Black and White

I have always been a black and white girl. Black and white is a classic and timeless color combination. I am loving that it is a very present trend for spring. I am so excited to pair black and white with pops of color, especially with some of the coral and mint purchases that I featured in a recent blog post.  I thought I would share some of my recent black and white purchases, as well as some other items I am currently coveting.  I purchased all of the items below (except those from Target) at 35%-50% off. Sales and promos pop up so often that I rarely find a reason to pay full price for something! I also love how the Loft and Banana Republic items below transition so well between work attire and casual wear. I am imagining so many different outfit combinations, so I know I will get my money's worth!

Recent Purchases

{1} Loft - Corded Dobby Striped Blazer (in Moonlight Ivory) - purchased 50% off
{2} Target Mossimo Flap Satchel Handbag and Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses 
{3} Banana Republic Chevron Silk Buttoned Tank - purchased 35% off
{4} Banana Republic Printed Peplum Top - purchased 35% off
{5} Target Zebra Bangle (current in stores, not available online)
{6} Banana Republic Belted Graphic Pencil Skirt - purchased 35% off

Currently Coveting

{1} Loft Petra Floral Print Pumps {2} Ann Taylor Dotted Mesh Tee {3} Target Mossimo Blazer
{4} Forever 21 Grid Pattern Georgette Shirt {5} Prabal Gurung for Target Cardigan in Meet the Parents Print
{6} Prabal Gurung for Target Ankle Strap Pump

And, I also want to mention that I am OBSESSED with these Love 21 pants that fellow blogger Emily Gemma, from The Sweetest Thing, has on!! Serious swooning going on over here. I am so sad they are not on the Forever 21 website. I need these pants in my life, so I will have to track them down at a store.  I should also mention that they are only $22 - such a steal!! Thank you, Emily, for sharing these amazing pants!

If you're interested in any of the above - Loft currently has a 30% off EVERYTHING sale going on (enter code ENJOY30 at checkout). Banana Republic is offering 30% off your purchase of $150 or more (online only - use code BRTAKE30) and 40% off one full-price item (in store only), and Ann Taylor has 30% off select full-price styles right now (use code SHOPCHIC).

How will you style the black and white trend this spring?
