A black and white outfit should always be kept in your style repertoire for the days when you have a million other things to think about other than what to wear. A black and white combo will make you look cool, calm and collected no matter what lies on your plate that day. It's season-less, and can be dressed up or down seamlessly.
In my opinion, the 'No White After Labor Day' rule doesn't apply anymore. Nevertheless it's June 21st (i.e the 1st day of summer) so if you do happen to still follow that rule, you're permitted to pull out your crispest white blouse now.
Summer also means that you better have some rad sunnies on deck. Today's look is showcasing sunglasses designed by Mechaly, a French designer duo that moved to Beverly Hills to bring their vision to life. Mechaly strives to serve the women who lead busy lives and make it effortless to have accessories that encompass style and comfort. A perfect match to a combination of black and white. Keep it simple, but make a statement with edgy accessories, so that you can move along with your busy life.
I love an unexpected contrast: above you can see the raw frays of cut-off denim shorts with the festival inspired So-chella Sunnies & a timeless white romantic blouse.
Mechaly is a certified Vegan brand raising awareness that fashion can be cruelty-free. In addition to sunglasses, they sell handbags and jewelry that are all cruelty-free. The designer's French roots have led them spread a message of integrity, social responsibility, excellence, inclusiveness, and authenticity. The designer's Grandfather engrained in them that life is precious and the importance of cherishing good health and every day that you're blessed to live. Like a timeless color combination, the simple blessings of life should never be underestimated.
This romantic top is perfectly on trend for 2017. Off-the-shoulder & Bardot necklines are huge this summer, in addition to a flared bell-sleeve. 2 trends with 1 shirt, it doesn't get easier than that! This top is incredibly versatile, and can easily be worn from day-to-night. The Bold-Move Aviators above are all you need for the sunniest days, the UV protecting tint made it possible for me to handle this harsh sunlight.

Black, white and a dash of gold & you're all set.
Mechaly products are available in the Chez Mad Boutique! The best accessories are the ones that you can feel good about wearing. On Sunday, I will be posting an article about the importance of a mid-year goal review! There's 6 months left of 2017 so if your New Year's Resolutions got swept under the rug, it's a great time to refocus.
Have a great rest of the week, and Happy Summer babes! Thank you for reading!
