when you have nothing to wear wear black and white

Last week, I raced home from work to get ready for a night out with my fiance. 
I wear scrubs to work, so there is zero option for me to transition a work look out for the night. I'm usually rushing around like a maniac trying to get ready on time and it just so happened it was one of those nights I couldn't find anything to wear. Bad combo. 
That's when I decided to implement Plan B: Wear Black + White.

It always works.
When you can't find anything to wear, find your favorite black + white pieces and start putting a look together. 

1. Start with a product you know you want to wear.
I'm obsessed with my Gap destructed sexy boyfriend jeans, so I set them aside.

2. Scan your closet for the black or white piece that works with your selected choice. 
I went with this lace top that was hiding in the back of my closet. I love feminine tops with a roughed-up jean. My top is a few years old, but this Elysian lace top works perfectly too.

3. Time for the shoe.
I cannot resist a great black pump with a slim and tapered boyfriend jean. My J. Crew Everly suede pumps made their debut and they did not disappoint. I love 'em and I want them all. In every single color. They are on sale and if I could justify it, I would snag all the 8h mediums.

4. Accessories
Just go for it!
You can basically rock anything with black and white. I chose a vintage grey clutch to break it up a little + added pops of gold jewelry.

This look is easy-to-do, classic and anything but boring.

What do you think? Do you have a go-to look when you are pinched for time??

Cute outfit and good tips! I too wear scrubs to work and strip those nasty things off as soon as I walk through the door! There's nothing cute about scrubs might as well be baggy pjs!

I've been thinking about those jeans for a while - I think I might need them now ;)

My go-to (at least in the summer) is a slouchy tee, a pair of cutoff shorts, and booties. And a long pendant necklace can't hurt!

Super cute! I just saw a similar top in some styling youtube video and I loved it. Guess it's meant to be for me to have one like it!

Love this classic look pretty lady! And so happy that your pretty top got to make its way out from the back of the closet! When I am in a pinch, I have a few Old Navy sundresses that I throw on... one piece & I'm done!
