NDM Style: Charcoal + Black

Feb 21, 2014

Happy Friday Friends!!  I am hoping we will have some nice weather this weekend!  Lately I have been obsessed with finding the perfect tee shirt and jeans.  I feel like as a stay at home mom of two that is my daily uniform.  A tee shirt and jeans can be totally dowdy if you don’t have the right ones.  I am pretty smitten with my outfit today.  The jeans and tee are on constant rotation in my wardrobe.

The jeans are the JBrand Maria High Rise in black.  As far as JBrand jeans go the Marias are my favorite.  They suck you in majorly because of the high waist and are very flattering.  My mom swears by them too.

This tee is my latest obsession.  Rag and Bone tees are the absolute best.  They are soft and fit so well for a casual yet not sloppy look.  I just love the charcoal gray color it goes with everything!  It runs true to size but keep in mind it is not meant to be a fitted tee.  I am wearing a size small.

Behold, my new favorite bracelet combo.  These three have not left my arms since I was in Charlotte.  Wish I had painted my nails after looking at this picture:)

Does Kate Spade ever make a bad purse??  I think not.  This is quite possibly the perfect black clutch.  It is big enough for day or evening.

and last but not least the booties.  Rag and Bone Harrow Booties, a splurge but worth every penny.  They run on the smaller side so order up a half size if you are in between.

A perfect outfit for running errands during the day but cute enough to wear out at night.  All of these items are favorites in my closet that get heavy rotation.  Trust me you will wear the heck out of this tee and jeans!
