Spring/Summer Date Night: Black & White Outfit with Pink Sandals

I'm date night ready with this black and white outfit featuring a black Banana Republic cold shoulder ruffle tank, white J.Brand jeans, and pink Steve Madden Irenne Block Heel Ankle Strap Sandals!

For a spring or summer date night, you can’t go wrong with a cute black top and crisp white jeans. I know I do this combination a lot, but it never gets old to me.

When I wear a black and white outfit, I like to bring in a color or pattern to add interest. Sometimes I do that with my handbag, but usually with footwear. Leopard always works, and red or orange look great with a black and white outfit, but this time I went with pink sandals.

I’ve had this cold-shoulder ruffle tank in my closet for quite a while, waiting for it to get warm enough to style it. We had a mild day last weekend, so I put this outfit together, and when I went to write this post, I discovered that this top sold out in the black. Womp! Womp!

It is still available in white, but sizes are limited. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.

Fortunately black cold shoulder tops are a dime a dozen this spring. I also like this, this, and this. And this is cute but not cold shoulder.)

SALE ALERT >> 40% off your purchase at Banana Republic online and in stores. No code needed.

I wore cropped white jeans so the pink ankle straps on my sandals would show. I like the added texture the deconstructed denim adds to the outfit, but of course you can sub plain white jeans if you prefer that look. These by Articles of Society are a nice budget-friendly alternative, and Banana Republic has a non-distressed pair that are 40% off today.

These are the same pink block-heel ankle strap sandals I wore with the black mock neck knit dress last week. I like how they pop against the white jeans for a fresh, summery look.

I probably won’t actually wear this combination until later in the season because here in Philly it’s still pretty chilly, but if you live further south, perhaps you’re already wearing short sleeves and sandals. It sure seems that way from my Instagram feed! I would throw on a denim jacket for a chilly evening.

When I wear pink shoes with a neutral outfit, I like to echo the pink somewhere else — even if just with my lipstick. In this case, I brought out these pink Baubblebar chandeliers. They’re old, but I also like these and these. (And yes, my eyelashes are real. People ask me this at least once a week, lol. I’ve been using that Rodan + Fields Lash Boost, and it is incredible.)

I carried this neutral hobo, but I wish I’d thought to grab my leopard clutch. I think that would be the perfect finishing touch to this outfit.
