It’s a few days into 2013 and maybe you, like Jill of Everything Just So and me, need a sartorial palate cleansing after a month or more of sparkle and shine! While coming down off the holiday high, it’s so great to get back to the chic basics of Black and White.
Jill recently purchased this beautiful Carolee necklace and wears it with a classic black blazer and ivory top.
Amy wore this black and white striped pencil skirt with black top and tall boots to see the Rockettes in New York City over the holidays. How fun!
Catherine wore this black and white Karen Millen dress on Christmas day with great patterned tights and a feather headband.
Sheree wears black leather shorts, black blazer and white button down in this chic and edgy look.
Pam's sweater tunic and hat are both from Soft Surroundings. And her necklace is from Kohl's. She wore this outfit recently to a bridesmaids' luncheon last weekend for her new daughter-in-law. Congratulations on your son's recent marriage, Pam!
Jeannie wears a BCBG skirt and jacket along with a fabulous pair of strappy leopard heels.
Bella shows that successful pattern mixing doesn't have to involve lots of colors. Her striped black and white top looks just right with her abstract print skirt. Aside from her Target sunnies, Bella's outfit is entirely thrifted. Remember, always try Secondhand First!
Serene found this flirty black and white dress at a yard sale. Here, she wears it as a top with black leggings and flats. Check out her blog to see another look with the dress.
Suburban Princess wears a classic black and white houndstooth shawl with black slacks and loafers. Classic and timeless!
I chose to go for a conservative Black and White look. I bought this ruffled Ralph Lauren blouse at Goodwill for $4.00. It's in great condition.
I wore it with a black pencil skirt I bought at Nordstrom last winter.
This Zara coat I bought in San Francisco in 2010 has served me well. The open neckline worked better with the ruffles than my trench did. And I couldn't do a post about Black and White without including my cherished Guy de Jean brolly.
I've been itching to wear these new Ivanka Trump shoes I bought on sale a few weeks ago. I love the gold heels, cheetah print, black capped toes and little bows. It think they add a little interest to my outfit.

Whether it’s a date with your significant other, your girlfriends, your kids, or yourself, we’d love to see what you wear when stepping out!
Please join us next time by sending a photo to me or Jill by February 4, 2013.
From now on, Jill and I will both have this HIWM banner on the sidebars of our blogs with the following month's theme and deadline for photo submittals so you will all have time to get your photos in. Why didn't we think of this months ago?
