Black and Tan Basics

Vera Bradley wristlet

I’ve been obsessed with black and tan outfits lately. I generally wear a lot of black and feel that tan accents add a chic, sophisticated touch to an all-black look. I picked up these vintage leather driving gloves at an estate sale out in Arizona last month and love them paired with this leopard coat and Vera Bradley wristlet.

Remember Clarks boots? I’m wearing them so much and thrilled with how they’re ‘breaking in’, the leather is getting softer and has the perfect lightly-distressed look that I love. The fact that they are made by Clarks means they’re super comfy plus I can see myself wearing them with my black and tan outfits year-round.

Two exciting bits of news to share today: first up, the new house is finally move-in ready! There are a few odds and ends that aren’t quite finished plus planting that hasn’t even been started but that can all be taken care of once I’m in there. Phew! It’s been a long 13 months of remodeling but I’m so happy with how the house turned out and will share pics as soon as I can. The big move will be this weekend and I’m spending every spare moment packing and organizing. Secondly, I’m heading back to Puerto Vallarta in just under 2 weeks – aaaaah! Last year’s trip was an absolute blast because we went with a fun group of friends and it felt like one big party. This year we’ll be going with the same group and we’re all booked on the same flight so I’m gearing up for non-stop fun. I’m looking forward to sharing my adventures with you on this fun trip. You can check out my posts from last year’s Puerto Vallarta tripHERE and HERE and HERE.

I hope you’re having a great week and thanks so very much for following along xoxo
