Happy Friday!! I have discussed numerous times my addiction to wearing a lot of black. I promise I am a cheery person but black goes with everything... I find that I often gravitate towards it when buying basics. So alas, I end up in black from head-to-toe. I found this little black neoprene dress, out of all places at H&M. I love it's structure and dramatic swing shape, and it doesn't get more basic or essential than a LBD. I couldn't resist my usual ways of black with a side of black when it came to my boots and jacket. Speaking of boots, I love my 5050s, but I have been wanting a thigh high pair like the Lowland here. In an effort not to break the bank, I layered my thigh-high socks underneath my over-the-knee favorites, and voila! An instant pair of thigh-high boots! And in my final effort to combat my sea of black (and to avoid looking like Wednesday Adams) I layered a jeweled collar button down under my dress, and decided to tote my trusty metallic backpack. Now I look like Dora the Explorer, with a serious case of chic. I hope you have a great weekend, and thank you as always for reading !!
