  1. If I may ask this of you, do you ever get bored of black ? And perhaps you answered this before. Why black ?

    1. When I graduated high school 397475849 years ago, I had a bunch of very non-sensical clothing so I had literally a closet of nothing to wear. And I was @ a point where I wanted to look neat and put together on a daily basis and combine that with the retail all black dress code and being a broke college student, it was easier and more cost effective to wipe the slate clean with all black. You can get away with cheaper clothing in black and then use accessories for “pops of color.”

      These days its much easier to stick to a minimal color palette—because I want to throw on my clothes and go. I know my wardrobe mixes effortlessly and makes sense. Black also tones down “unusual” textures and silhouettes. And black is THE color of Rick Owens. I actually enjoy vivid/jewel tone colors, leopard print, and tropical prints. When I wear color, I wear COLOR! And I prefer prints/pattern to solid since color blocking doesn’t “make sense” to me. But I am very, very particular about color and it does get boring that so much of what I buy is the umpteenth million black t-shirt. But my eye also can get weary of color. So can’t go wrong with black. I can go on and on, but this response is already too long as it is! I hope it makes sense.

  2. I love every outfit in this post. My two favourite pieces are the JL tunic, and Zara pants with buttons (is it navy?)
