I’ve probably talked about my complicated relationship with black before, so I’m sorry if you’re over this… I’ve only started wearing black in the last few years. For some reason I was never comfortable wearing it. I almost always reserved it for more formal looks. Like, going out tonight? Wear black. Going to a funeral? Wear black. Putting on a magic show? Wear black. I also feel like maybe it had to do with the fact that it was such a stark contrast next to my pasty white skin? I don’t know.. needless to say I hardly ever wore it.
Regardless of where my fear of black clothing came from, in recent years I have slowly begun to add more of it into my wardrobe. And with seemingly little to no effort at all it has quickly turned into a style staple. I’ve even started wearing it casually. Look at me, all grown up. Even thought it’s a million degrees in the summer, a classic black polo is the perfect staple. It looks perfect with paired with these palm print shorts. I love that while this is a definite “summer” look it doesn’t have to be all sea mists and white, but can be darker and a little more dramatic. I think I made a good choice adding the black wingtips into the mix; they gave a pretty simple outfit a little bit of an elevated flair. And of course the amazing watch with Swarovski crystals and the railroad spike bracelet aren’t hurting anything either. 😉
