For the last few weeks my mornings have been a blur of my hitting the snooze button one too many times, or worse, turning off the alarm only to promptly fall back asleep.

As a result of my oversleeping, I have to force myself to not overthink my outfits and nothing comes together easier than black and white.

  1. Loving the chevron accessories!
    And I know what you mean about the snooze button, I've been using it far too often lately too. Must be the time of the year for sleeping, haha

  2. The morning struggle is real. Sadly, I'm the opposite - my body persistently wakes me up before my alarm has even gone off. I'm thrilled on the odd day when I'm not already awake when the alarm goes off. (Of course, because I wake up so early I frequently fall asleep watching Netflix when normal people are still very much out and about living life.) Either way, I'm loving the simplicity of this outfit and the fact that I already own everything I need to recreate it, except of course the bright shoe - and you almost have me convinced that I need to change that!

  3. OMGosh I've been doing the same thing. But you're right--you cannot go wrong with white, black and a bit of red.

  4. Love this classy trench! You look fabulous!
    xo, Jane

  5. You look so chic. Love the outfit, so simple and easy. And the purse is GREAT!


  6. You pulled it off quite well.
    I am guessing you are taking up my sleeping hours. Right now I can barely do 5 hours on any given day :(

  7. Loving this polished look, doll- and those pumps are gorgeous! Great color!

  8. I've been super tired lately too! Can the day start at 10:00 from now on. lol. I love this classic look! The perfect go-to!

  9. I just got a new trench! You're totally inspiring me. Gorgeous look lady!

  10. haha yes I am guilty of turning my alarm off for just 5 more minutes too, and rushing around madly and almost being late! I pick my outfit the evening before so I'm not fussing over clothes, but black and white is a great fail-safe that always looks good.'

    I like how you've added colour with the heels too! :)

  11. The trench and red heels are just beautiful details! I always have to think out my outfits the night before because of a serious snooze button pressing obsession haha.

  12. Great classic look! Love the camel with the pop of red!

  13. Gorgeous outfit! I love the trench coat and the shoes give such a nice pop of color to the outfit!

  14. I love your casual elegance here and the color combination has fall written all over it.

  15. Simple and classic, you can never go wrong with that. Especially when you have a pair of fabulous shoes to top it off! Love those.

  16. Classic timeless look! Those heels are the perfect touch!

  17. That's why I love black and white! Easy to put together but looks so chic! Love the camel coat with the black and white.
