Wore: Black on Black on Black

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I was feeling very chic and decided to wear the most classic thing ever – all black. 

Something about putting this all forgiving color on just makes me feel so dressed up and ready for anything (well maybe not anything, I’m definitely not ready to hang around a bunch of cats that shed hair like crazy!).

Yes, I love pink and try to wear it when I can, but I must admit that black takes up quite a lot of space in my wardrobe. It’s just so easy to pair black with multiple items in my closet. But wearing all black is a very rare occurrence because I don’t want people to think I’m in mourning. I’m a very happy person who just happens to dress in less color sometimes. For no particular reason other than I feel pulled together and sleek in such a dark color.

Pants: Target. Black Tshirt: H&M. Cardigan/Shrug: LOFT. Shoes: DSW. Bracelet: Lou Lou. Necklace: gift.

Do you ever wear all black? What accessories do you pair with your all black outfit?

I’m linking up with Style Elixir for Style Sessions, The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, Because Shanna Said So for Random Wednesdays, Get Your Pretty On for I Feel Pretty and Hooah and Hiccups for Wildcard Wednesday.


Have you checked out Kiersten over at Good Day Sunshine yet? If you are looking for AWESOME photography, some terrific writing and blog posts to put a smile on your face, you must click this link now.

Kiersten definitely takes advantage of this thing called life, you can tell just by looking through all of her photos, like this one:

The girl appreciates the beautiful things in life, and I’m kind of jealous of her college life and all that she gets to see and do. Just like me, she had dreams of living in New York City. But of course, she realized that where she is in her place in life is exactly where she needs to be. 

In getting to know Kiersten through her blog, I realize we both have a lot in common. She is a journalism major who appreciates and vows to always read the written word. Me too girl, me too. Actual books and hand written cards are where it’s at.

I love what Kiersten says about her blog, so I’ll let her tell you it directly:
I'm a 20-something college student, trying to make my way to the ‘real’ world, and hoping something will be there waiting for me when I make it. I've loved writing since I could take a pencil to paper, photography since my mom handed me my first Polaroid and the Beatles since my dad introduced me to Yellow Submarine. Good Day Sunshine is a collection of essays, stories and photographs inspired by life, The Beatles and the sunshine. It's my life, the best I know how to write it.
One of my favorite regular posts on her blog? Her Friday Letters; so funny, cute and creative.

Isn't she great? I sure think so. Hit up Good Day Sunshine immediately! Just trust me.


  1. Love your new design, it looks great! I like to wear black too, it hides flaws as well as looks classy, you can't go wrong with that! Going to check out Kiersten now!

  2. Love the blog makeover! When the heck did this happen?? I've been reading blogs way too much on my cell. Geez! It's looks great...as do you! You know I get down on some black on black. Love seeing your little bump grow, you're glowing girl! Just beaming happiness :)

  3. I love you in all black! Looks great! AND your cute baby bump is adorable! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new blog design too!

  4. I'm always so afraid to wear all black for the same reason you said, but I love the way it looks! Like you said, it just looks so put together, and I feel like a little bit of black looks good on everyone!
