Black To Basics – An All Black Outfit

I’m writing this post while packing my weekend bag, as R & I are on our way to Los Angeles for a few days and I’m extremely excited! Los Angeles isn’t a new city to us. We’ve been there a handful of times now and we already have some favorites spots that we can’t wait to visit…

No matter how much I stack my closet with colors, now that’s it’s spring and all I always find myself pivoting towards an all black outfit, especially on a night out. And this time I couldn’t resist. Not only is an all black outfit sliming, it’s also sophisticated & sexy. It’s also easier to look like a million bucks when you only can spend a few…

Us girls know the importance of good fitting jeans. When I first saw these $7 Forever 21 jeans I wasn’t expecting much. I mean they’re $7 for goodness sake! To my shock, they turned out to be one of the best fitting pair of jeans I’ve ever owned alongside my beloved navy pair of Calvin Kleins.

I don’t know about you, but I always like to break a monochromatic outfit with shoes and accessories. These camel mules, bucket bag and hat that you might remember from here were the perfect fit.

I hope everyone is having a non-spooky Friday the 13th, and I wish you a great weekend!

XoXo,

Tamara

    I totally agree, an all black is always flattering! You just can’t go wrong with it. Great look!

    An all black outfit is something that you will rarely see me wear. But you are right. An all black outfit is always sexy and sophisticate and you look so good in it! 🙂
