Timeless Style - High-Waisted Jeans & Black and White


I was catching up on reading my magazines this weekend, when I came across this picture of the ever stylish Jane Birkin.  Her outfit reminded me of one I wore on my recent trip.  


I got to thinking how some styles just transcend time.  I love this look, it’s casual yet chic, slightly tom-boyish yet feminine.  


It combines two of my favorite fashion essentials,  black and white (check out my love for THIS CLASSIC COLOR COMBO) and jeans (for which I have a near obsession).  These are items that can easily span decades in your closet, so you can feel confident investing in pieces you love.  However, because they are so basic, you can often find great deals on them as well.  Both this TOP and PAIR OF JEANS  are on super sale at Lord & Taylor.    


As for my obsession with jeans,  I can’t say that I have it under control.  I picked up this high-waisted pair right before my vacation, and was happy to add them to family.  They are super soft and the high-waist can also be flattering (read:no muffin top.)  I know I will continue to wear them for a long time.
