Black For Summer Style

The Scoop

I don’t think of wearing black as much in the summer as I do the rest of the year but I found this black top and thought it was so classic and the perfect thing to wear on a summer day. Come along with me through my house as I show you this look and some of the rooms of my house.

The first picture is my (above) dining room.

This is our family room where we watch TV and hang out. It is open to the kitchen so am always part of the action when cooking or cleaning.

Here I am standing in my kitchen. A few days after I took these pictures I did another project in the kitchen. I painted the pantry door. My husband has went on and on about how much hes loves the results. I am always working on a project which is why I love this house. There are many projects to be done!

Create Your Own Look

Linking my exact top, bag, sunglasses and lots of other fabulous options most of which I have in my closet. The Steve Madden wedge sandals are on my extreme wish list!

My Look

I’m wearing a black top from Amazon, black 7 For All Mankind jeans, Steve Madden wedge sandals my Cult Gaia bag. Everything is old but the top. My earrings are old too and added a pop of color to this look. They are by Bauble Bar. My sunglasses are also from Amazon and I have three pairs of them in different colors because I love them so much. My coffee mug is by Rae Dunn an artist that does all sorts of dishes with fun sweet sayings on them. I have a couple of mugs and some flower pots in my kitchen that I grow herbs in. I watch and pick up a piece when I find one I like. This mug says Be You.

This is our front or formal living room and the room you enter when you come in the front door. I love the old fashion vibe of inviting guests into the front room to visit.

This is the formal living room too. The stairs lead up to the second and third floors. If you include the basement you have five elevations in this house. It is kind of funky that way and another reason I love the place.

Below is my pantry door project. So far in our kitchen we have put in new granite counters, all new appliances, I painted all the walls and now the the pantry door. I am still thinking about the cabinets on whether I want to paint or leave alone. I really like the wood look right now so I am not in a hurry to do anything. I also love the library pulls on the drawers. They are old but back on trend now. It goes to show if you wait long enough things come back around. Ha ha.
