Day 794: Happy September

House Beautiful

For some reason, I never feel quite right wearing black during the spring and early summer.


But now that we're officially in late summer, I love it with my white jeans.

With just a little bit of color (muted or bright), black and white feels just right on this first day of September, don't you think?

Love, love, love black and white for both interiors and clothing. It is both classic and contemporary at the same time!

Love the stoneware contrasted against the black wall in the first image!

Black and white bookcase is stunning. Also love the collection of different black chairs. Amazing how the black tries them all together. Fall is here, break out the black.

I agree 100%! In fact, I wore black & white with a touch of color {yellow shoes} today. And in regards to that first gorgeous pic...makes me think I should start collecting white pitchers.

I'm definitely wearing black and white with a shot of pink today. I honestly think it's because this post got in my head yesterday! Oh the power you have with these pretty pictures!
