Black on Black

I don’t know about you guys, but my looks have been a bit on the dark side lately. Black on black on black. Blame it on the holidays being over, the weather being absolutely brutal, the lack of sunshine, my skin tone starting to rival Edward Cullen’s, or all of the above. I’m in need of some Vitamin D!

    Love this look on you. I’ve been rocking the black on black a lot lately – and tons of gray which I’m sure isn’t helping my complexion!

    Here’s hoping Spring comes early!

    I also tend to wear an awful lot of black during this season 🙂 I love this outfit!


  15. 1.13.14

    Black is probably my favorite color to wear (mostly because I spill stuff all.the.time). It’s also just so easy to accessorize and match!


  16. 1.13.14

    Or it’s the fact that you’re now a real New Yorker. I hear all they wear is black 🙂

    Seriously, though, you should think about taking the Black Out Style Challenge from VV Boutique Style. No black for January! I’m still going strong.

    Love this look and especially the jacket – great minds think alike. I own it too!

  21. 1.13.14

    I understand the black on black. I’ve been on that boat since about November. And my tastes right now for shopping are either all black or kind of insanely bright. Go figure!

    Very chic look! Stay warm up there!

    ME TOO! I think I’ve worn more black in the past month than I ever have in my life. Although we are expecting temps in the high 70’s so maybe that will get me out of my funk. You looks adorbs tho!

    XOXO, Jenn

    I love the look! But I’ve been doing the opposite lately. My philosophy: if I wear really bright colours and floral prints, I can will the nicer weather to come. 😛
