A quick post today about an all black look, which is very often my go-to for the office. Our mornings are hectic and rushed (trying to get my kids ready for daycare and getting myself ready on top of it), so when the time comes that I need to put some clothes on and rush out the door, I usually opt out for something black and I am done! Hey, black goes with everything, right? So any black pieces I grab from my closet will go with each other. To spice up the look a little bit, accessorize! Add a colored bag or a printed scarf and you suddenly stand out from the crowd. Here, I am wearing calf hair, leopard print ankle boots, which definitely grab attention and the whole ensemble is no longer basic. I used to think of leopard print as being very tacky overall, but really, when applied in small dozes, it can be quite chic and edgy.
Wearing: H&M coat and pants (both sold out; similar pants here by New Look via Asos.com); Free People ankle boots (sold out; these by Steve Madden are pretty great; these Thelma are pretty great too!); DKNY bag.
