Black on Black

I don't know what got into me this morning. Maybe it's the fact that I saw a personal trainer at my new gym on Sunday and realized that I am not as in shape as I thought I was (and can barely walk today)....and maybe it's that I need to curb my sugar addiction... or maybe it's because it was gloomy out...but I decided to wear all black. GASP! It's like I'm taking this blog back to 2009.

It's nice to switch it up sometimes though and I can never quite get enough of a great polka-dot top.




Top- Club Monaco (old, another option; and another)
Skirt- J.Crew (
buy it here)
Necklace- Forever 21 (old,
similar; another option)
Shoes- Zara

Do you wear black in the summertime? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I love polka dots too and I do wear black on black quite a bit even in the summer. Just pair up with some nice accessories is good to go.

  2. You've been wearing a lot of color lately so it's ok to wear black once in a while. Plus it looks so classy.
    The bag adds a nice pop of color ;)

  8. I think you use color in your wardrobe really well - but I just love dressing in all black, especially for the office. Don't feel bad or off-trend about wearing all black. It's classic. Think how many images of Audrey Hepburn are of her in all black.

  11. I actually try avoiding blacks during the day in summer, particularly if it's quite sunny, but I can imagine that if you're in the office all day anyway, it won't make a great difference... I love your necklace with this outfit!

  12. Black on black will always be a classic so there's no harm in going (back) there. I love your polka dot top and that necklace is so pretty too.

  14. I DO wear black in the summertime but I always feel a little funny in doing so... gloomy days tend to be good for this or fat days :P

  15. I love your outfit. No matter what the trends are at any given time, having an all black outfit or dress is a classic wardrobe staple. There's nothing wrong with wearing all black. I love the high-low polka dot shirt you posted. You almost need shirts to be longer in back so they don't untuck during the day.

  16. Sometimes, all black is a refreshing change to all the summer color! Love how you still have that pop of color though from the bag, ha :)

  17. I see purple and white in there... clearly not all black! :) This outfit is super cute. I am loving my black skinny jeans with my chambray shirt with a bright necklace. I think if you get one bright thing in there then no one will even notice!

  18. Omg those shoes are sooo cute! I love them :) And you look really chic in all black too! Plus I see a pop of colour with your bag so it's all good ;) <3

  19. You look so great in that outfit!
    The Polka Dots totally cheer up the blackness. Think it´s appropriate for summertime, too.
    And V by the way, don´t get confused by the personal trainers, I think you´re in an amazing shape und look very pretty and feminine! <3
    Kind of a girl crush thing here ;o)
