Back to Black

Does anyone agree with me that fall is the busiest season of the year? I honestly don't know where the days have gone! My weeks have been so crazy busy with homework and activities that I totally dropped the ball on blogging these past few weeks. Three weeks later (yikes!) I finally have a post! Anyways, I'm not sure why I never really wore black before this year, but this fall both Catherine and I have found it to be one of our go-to colors. I've always recognized how versatile and classic black is, but this is the first time I've incorporated it into my wardrobe. Over the summer I finally purchased a black vest from J. Crew Factory and I wear it all the time; I really want another one! I decided to pair it with a black top underneath and even though I'm doubling up on the same color, I think it works!

I will always love my giraffe necklace!

  1. Black on black (on black on black on black) will always work! I worked at J.Crew Factory this summer and not purchasing a vest was so hard. Black was a great choice! Glad you're back with blogging!

  2. I love how busy Autumn is, with all sorts of events and holidays going on, it's my favourite time of year (well, Autumn/Winter!). That outfit is perfect, I am so tempted to buy a J.Crew vest, it might actually be a blessing in disguise that we don't have J.Crew Factory here in the UK, or I would've bought them all buy now! :)
