Back in Black

Necklace:  Francesca's

I love how COLOR is the big fashion trend these days.  (The bolder the better!)  I am totally embracing this, but sometimes, I like to go back to the simple and classic all black.  Black pumps, pants, and top, with just a touch of jazz in the accessory.  You can never go wrong with this game plan.

Have you rocked an all black outfit lately?

Linking up with Shanna and The Pleated Poppy.

I've been trying to stray away from black because it consumes a lot of my closet but who can resist? It's such a timeless staple.

Lovin' the necklace and LOVE Francesscas :)

I have a black dress that I wear with black leggings and black boots. But the other day, I spiced it up by wearing purple TIGHTS. I wore tights for the first time in years!

I like wearing black sometimes because your accessories really pop.

Sometimes you do have to go back to basics! Cute necklace

Erin said...

I def rock a lot of all black to work, and jazz it up with pretty jewelry and maybe fun shoes every once in awhile too ;)

Aimee said...

What I love about black is that it is such a timeless look. It creates a perfect silhouette on you! Love it!

I love an all-black outfit. In my opinion, it's elegant and always stylish!

Robin said...

Awesome!
I generally have to shy away from all-black...something about my face often makes people think I am angry and depressed, when I am actually completely happy. I don't know why. I feel that an all-black outfit can only emphasize that image.

I like it, it is very Audrey Hepburn.

How is your back?

LEIGH said...

Rocking it right now, except a little less glamorous...

Katie said...

i'm wearing a black dress today! love your all black!

Annie said...

I love color, but I love the black on black too! And that necklace is gorgeous :)

Color is totally my thing, but once every other week I wear my favorite black cropped pants, with a cute black top, my black heels and some saucy necklace ;)

I looove Francesca's!!

Rebecca said...

I usually wear all black on the weekends which, ironically, is the worst color to wear around kids in my opinion. But, it's easy and comfortable!

beth @ {a latte inspiration} said...

I've been trying to move away from black in recent years, but its such a great staple to have. I love pairing it with brown. :) However, nothing says classy like an all black outfit with heels and red nails, simplicity at it's best. :)

Niki Caron said...

I am totally with you! I love color but sometimes all black can be so chic! You look absolutely gorgeous - I love this outfit on you!

Rebecca S. said...

Black will be awesome forever, I love it. I actually did wear black pants and a black sweater just a few days ago. Great minds think alike :)

Ashley said...

Pretty much just dresses with the odd scrubes sometimes for work!!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Classic! :) Especially pretty when it's offset with your blonde hair!

Meredith said...

I love the all black with accessories that add a pop of color. When I had blonde hair for a hot min i loved wearing black more that with brown hair.

McKenna Ryan said...

I love your necklace!! You look so beautiful in these pictures as always. xx. McKenna Lou

Love the black. You know I'm a big sucker for simple. :) Love even more the slight touch color on your nails, just makes the black, blacker. ;)

Traci Little said...

I love color but all black is SO classic! I may have to take you up on that! Oh, and totally slimming too!

Here's what I wore:

I love the classic black. Unfortunately that's what I find I wear most as of late. I gotta do whatever I can to slim down this big preggo tummy :)

I wear black a lot! I think it looks nicer for certain things too. Very classic. I own more black clothes than I think I realized!

Jonna Eiffert said...

I love the all black look! I am a sucker for color as well but you can't go wrong with black on black. Going back to the staples :)

Very true, hard to go wrong with all black. Looking good, lady!

I haven't tried this in awhile, simply because I don't have a pair of black pants/jeans that I really like. But it's hard to go wrong with a simple black dress, too. :)

Noel Marie said...

Omg, aside from your basic outfit can I just say...I stumbled across this blog from the hop and I loveee your hair! So super cute!! Following along now (I swear, it's not just because of your hair...but it might be part of the reason!)

A black outfit or LBD is my go-to for a night out on a date (when I actually go on these). I went on a date last week and when trying on different outfits I finally decided an all black was my best choice. Paired with an excellent statement necklace it was dressy enough but not overly in-you-face.

All black: classy, sassy, but not trashy!

Karen Curtis said...

I am trying to get out of black, lol! You look great and I agree that adding a pop of color can jazz things up.

solid black is a great i am in charge type of outfit very slimming and i love how you styled it with a great statement necklace!

Sam M said...

I don't think I've ever really worn an all black outfit. I need to get some cute black pants, because dress pants for work just don't pull off the all black look.

Emmy said...

I just came home from shopping and yes some of the bold colors out there are crazy bold-- don't always look the best with my complexion

Johnny Cash! I'm so guilty about wearing only black... and the fact that I have black hair does not help.

I have! But yours is way classier than mine. I wear all black when I feel I need courage to face the day, so I wear it a lot:)
