Hey Friends! I hope you’ve had an awesome week so far. I’m really excited to share today’s post. I’m all about spring colors and bright patterns, but also love stepping out in bold monochrome looks – especially black. It’s a favorite and natural go-to for most girls and happens to be a HUGE spring/summer 2016 trend, per all the fashionistas of the world.
So, grab your favorite, filled mug and put your feet up, I present to you “A Day in the Life” of guess who? Me! I’m going Back in Black – you know, Posh Spice before she was Victoria Beckham. Below are a few adorable looks that will have you feeling like a babe in black from sun up to sundown.
9 AM: Up and At Em’!
Are you a morning person? I know I personally struggle with this! But whether you are or not an all black look will have you feeling your best and ready to conquer your day. There’s no better feeling than leaving the house looking like a million bucks! And let’s be real – looking my best usually means looking my slimmest, which is where this first look comes from. This lightweight black trench is perfect for cool spring mornings, but doesn’t look too bulky. I love it and found similar pieces at White House Black Market at Tanger Outlets. While you’re there, pick up a pair of fun sunnies and a chic (not black) bag to tie it all together.
12 PM: Shopping Anyone?
There’s nothing quite like a little midday lunch and quick shopping trip with your girlfriends. If that’s on your agenda for the day, toss on a flowy, knee-length dress or comfy shirt and skirt combo – perfect for walking around, killing time and super easy to slip on and off when you’re trying on the excessive amount of clothes in the dressing room. I’m telling you, this is the number one driver when I dress for a shopping trip!
3 PM: Back to Work
After getting a little shopping in, it’s time to head back to the office. Ditch the larger tote and grab this sleek black crossbody. Pro tip: always keep black and neutral shoe and handbag options in the back of your car… You never know when you’ll need them! This tradeoff makes the perfect transition into the after hours look.
8 PM: Let’s Hit It
After you’ve called it a day, it’s time to step out on the town in these fun chunky heels (seriously, my car is a second closet). A night out is the perfect excuse to fuel some shoe obsession splurging. Steve Madden always has stunning choices that will have you owning the night, one step at a time. I would actually consider rocking these all day long though, they’re THAT comfortable!
Well, another day has come and gone. Hopefully my day in black has inspired you to style your own chic looks! With the right attitude and outfit, black in spring can actually be quite refreshing. Comment below with any black styling questions you have… I’m here to help!
