All-Black Everything

Jacket: Anthropologie (similar)    Dress: H&M   Bag: 88 ℅    ShoesWills London ℅     Belt: H&M    Necklace: xoxo kait (similar)

This is my 4th (and final) outfit for my #Summerin88 Lookbook.  I'll be posting my project that I've been working with them on for over a month now very soon, so stay tuned!  I'm excited to release that.  

I'll be honest, all-black isn't all that practical for California's current weather... it's been hovering in the 90's with a dry heat so intense that I can't bear wearing sleeves, much less black.  I do love the look of an all-black outfit- the fact that it's monochromatic allows you to play with different details and textures.  I love this blazer jacket from Anthropologie, with its fun peplum detail at the bottom and delicate lace body.  You can wear it with a dress like this, or go more casual with a white tee and skinny jeans!  I wore it over this plain, and yes, slightly boring black dress- I do like to get neutral pieces for layering in outfits and using as a base.  

This 88 bag is black vegan saffiano leather with gold studs, and I loved how it counteracted the lace jacket with its slight edginess.  I also added on this necklace from one of my friends on Poshmark, Kait (@lynwol).  This is from her own line of jewelry, and I loved the daintiness and versatility of this little triangle pendant.  For the shoes, I kind of broke the all-black streak with the tan cap toes of my favorite heels by Wills London, but hey, that doesn't count... right?
