Black and white is one of my favorite combinations to wear. It’s so classic and chic, and is the perfect base for adding any other color in. I also love that it works in any season, on any silhouette, and I mostly love that it so often comes in stripes, which are obviously my favorite.

Today my sisters and I are talking Black and White style, which is a big trend for spring, along with blush, rose gold, and other pretty neutrals. I decided, for once, to move away from stripes and share one of my favorite dresses — a simple black and white shift dress that I picked up at Target a few months ago. It’s the perfect lightweight material, a really simple silhouette, and so comfortable. Although I often wear it by itself with a pair of heels or sandals, it’s also a great piece to layer like I did here with a chambray button up and a belt.

  • I love layers! I love this outfit!!


  • I love the way your dress looks in the pictures, but it doesn't look the same on Target's website. Does the dress photograph true to what it looks like? Thanks!! Julie

    • Yep, the dress looks just like it does in this photo! Much brighter white than in the Target product shot.

  • This is amazing! Whyyyy is my sister 8 yrs old? hahaha I have a feeling she's going to be borrowing from me in a few years…

  • Such a fun look! I like the layering a lot!

  • I wondering how this dress fits (size wise). I can only order it online so I can't try it on. (I always like to try on target clothes). I am a size 2-4 115 lbs. Should I order a s or a xs?

    • I actually purchased a size large so it had extra length, and then I took in the sides. Hope that helps!

  • Do you happen to remember the name of your glasses? I've been looking for a similar style with no luck! Thanks!
