black and white in downtown

May 7, 2014

black and white outfit, M Loves M
When in doubt, wear white. Or black. Or both! The other weekend Matthew and I went to meet some friends for brunch downtown. I wanted to wear something comfortable but still polished. I wore this black and white printed top {last seen here with wide leg jeans} and my go-to pair of white jeans. Since I wasn't sure what the parking situation would be like {downtown can get tricky!}, I wore these comfy black wedge sandals. This would be a great work to happy hour outfit too, don't you think?

Thank you everyone for your sweet congrats yesterday. It's so hard to believe Matthew and I have been married for three years. We celebrated last night with dinner at home- I made grilled cheese! It sounds silly but that was what we ordered when we got to our hotel room after the wedding. We didn't eat more than a few bites during the day because of how busy it was, so that room service grilled cheese was the best darn one we'd ever had! Sometimes, there's nothing better!



  1. Sorry...I'm late to the party...but Happy 3rd Anniversary!! ;)

  2. Beautiful and sophisticated outfit! I like your bag and blazer so much! Also, CONGRATULATIONS on your wedding anniversary, may there be MANY, MANY more to come :)

    This look is super cute! I love that white and black printed top! And that's super cute that you recreated your grilled cheese dinner! I guess that means my husband and I will have to go to Denny's when we celebrate our three years in July ;)



  15. Happy anniversary!

  16. Can't beat a good old grilled cheese - makes it so much better that it's a special memory between the two of you! I also have to confess I totally stalked all of your wedding posts yesterday while recovering from Cinco de Mayo. Loved them all!

  17. Love this!! So classy and chic. Black and White is always a good idea! I love the part about the grilled cheese, I think every couple leaves their reception hungry which is so sad!!;/ Beautiful as always!
