B(L)ACK TO THE BASICS.

As you all know, I am a huge fan of the color black. Below are some of my favorite fashion quotes about wearing black:

 "You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it for almost any occasion." —  Christian Dior

"Women who wear black live colourful lives." — Neiman Marcus

"Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy — but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don't bother you — don't bother me." —  Yohji Yamamoto

"I love black because it affirms, designs and styles. A woman in a black dress is a pencil stroke." — Yves Saint Laurent

Yes, I may wear black, but my day to day life is definitely a colorful one! I love waking up early, working from my home office, taking coffee/lunch breaks with my friends and family, collaborating with brands that I love, and soaking up the sun via poolside. I love reading my "NEU bible" app, fashion magazines for design inspiration, running my average of 4 miles on a treadmill watching "Love it or List it" and then eating cookie dough ice cream while watching Netflix at night with my love(finally on season 5 of Friends!)

I feel as though black doesn't mean you lead a boring lifestyle or that it is freezing outside. It just means you like black, and that is all there is to it! So this Spring, feel free to wear black if you'd like!

This black Jersey Tunic Dress from Caralase has become one of my favorite black go to's. You can dress it down with some sandals, tennis shoes and a messy bun. You can also, just as easily, dress it up like I did with these wedges from Steve Madden, some gold accessories, this beautiful R.Riveter Bag, my Triwa shades, and one of my favorite black hats! Everyone needs a fancy LBD(little black dress), but everyone also needs a comfy, day to night LBD too!

I hope you all won't be afraid to wear black this Spring and have a lovely rest of your week!
