Back to Black

As much as I love color, I finally began to introduce and embrace black into my wardrobe during my college years. However, when I do wear something black, I like to make sure the piece has an interesting element to keep the outfit fun and funky!

I bought this dress from Zara last year for my 21st birthday. I was drawn to the faux leather material because it added some edge to an otherwise simple LBD. The fit is also super flattering because the a-line skirt floats away from the body. I should also mention that the interior is a super soft suede material that is perfect for the winter.


I paired the dress with these adorable shoes from ASOS. They just arrived this past week! Needless to say, I was super stoked to try them on. I love the circle motif on the straps because it adds a fun graphic element to the shoes. They’re also pretty comfortable because of the thick heel. I can already tell that I will be wearing these bad boys a lot!
