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?
