When in Doubt, Wear Black.

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

We all have those days when none of the outfits we put together wants to cooperate. This top doesn't match well with these bottoms, or these shoes don't look right with this dress. Every combination you've tried just doesn't freaking work! When you're in this rut, JUST WEAR BLACK. You'll instantly look chic and put together, and for sure you're outfit will match. 
Culotte pants honestly scared me before. (#shortgirlproblems) The thought of awkwardly cropped and flared out pants seemed awful. I chose these on a whim but once I put them on it was like heavenly music was playing in the background. Yup–I LOVE THEM. I can't say I'll love all culotte pants but these in particular I love. The high waist and lace detailing helps not make my legs look too short.  Oh and did I mention it has POCKETS?! That's always a plus.
My beloved zeroUV sunnies! This is by far my favorite style they carry. So of course, I had to get them in another color!
The criss-cross detailing of this top is my favorite! And it's also just so comfortable to wear.
These block heels are a classic. They're very understated but still unique!

  8. Alyssa,

    These pants are too cute! Culottes have to be one of my most favorite trends right now and they are super easy to make (if you can sew lol)! I have never seen any with a lace overlay and you pulled them off effortlessly!

    Black is such an elegant color that can make any outfit stand out!
