The Portrait of a (Very Stylish) Lady



2016 is most def off to a great start but do you realize we’re already down to the last week of January? Crazy stuff!
So chin up lovelies, Summer will be here soon enough. While we wait, lets black. And ummm, look totally head turning. You want to kick your full proof black look up a notch? Pile on the accessories. Cinch that waist and top it all off with statement cage boots for a very bold touch. Gosh you’d be hard pressed to find a better look regardless of how bright...

...and you thought black was your typical wiggle into it and run out the door on those days where we gals say ‘I have nothing to wear’ while staring into a closet thats about to collapse under the weight of clothes. Sounds like you right? hehe. Me too! So it was vest meet dress, another piece from the haul I gushed about here.

A pair of cage boots styled previously (here) a fun and cheeky clutch that will keep the conversation going until summer and mirrored sunnies pulled it all together. Such fun and unexpected accessories!
Do you love?

Try as I might, I couldn’t pass up a shoot opp. in front of the dark cherry wood door and the pedestrian bridge, a treasure hidden in the woods. Very nicely tucked away until I discovered it, :))).

Your thoughts?

Thank you for stopping by. Keep thinking the purple thoughts, Xo.

  44. You know what they say " when in doubt go black" I'm one of those you described in the first paragraph,am staring at a closet full of clothes but still say I have nothing to wear and then it's back to black. The accessories on you are breathtaking and those boots are a killer. I love the way you styled the vest. Perfectly slayed.
