Back to Black

Tank - Target, Skirt - Frenchi c/o Nordstrom, Shoes - Nordstrom
So I have to admit, back in the day when I was still learning how to put my own style together, I relied very heavily on the color black. Pairing a bright colored fancy top with black pants or a black skirt was easy and safe and simple. But as I've cultivated my style over the years, I've drifted farther and farther away from black without even meaning to. I almost forgot how simple and polished a black skirt can look with a bright colored top. Voila! My return back, back, to black, black.




I don't know why I ever strayed so far from black. I'm going to have to remember to incorporate it into my wardrobe more. I love how it makes the teal color of my tank top really pop and gives the outfit a little classy touch. By the way, I know I am breaking a major fashion rule here with these shoes. A short curvy girl wearing leg-cutting ankle strap heels? I'm sure most fashion experts would cringe, but I don't care. I'm a dangerous fashion rule-breaker, check me out. (Check out other fashion rule-breakers here! We're like a gang. A gang of reckless fashion.) I just think these shoes are so darling, and I love the crepe straps that tie around the ankles. So what if I look about oompa loompa tall? My feet look cute.
