Black on Black for Summer

 Outfit deets:
* Garage kimono sweater which you've seen in a sand colour and on the weekend (in the sand colour).
* Joe Fresh tank.
* Vintage leather skirt (thrifted years ago & made in Canada which I thought was pretty cool).
* Iro heels.
* Accessories: Urban Planet necklace, Gucci sunglasses, Aldo & Michael Kors bangles.

I know I'm wearing these shoes a lot, which is pretty unlike me as I like to rotate through as much as possible, but I can't get enough of them.  You know they're good when you wear them multiple times per week and want to pair them with everything.

This is what I wore when I went out to Tennessy Willems the other night, but was coming from work so there was no outfit change.  I cannot get enough of black on black and while I used to feel so strange wearing it in the summer, now I can't seem to get enough.  Lately I have been gravitating towards neutrals and simple silhouettes; it's all I want to wear!

That said, I love being able to pair some of my warmer weather neutral pieces together to achieve a summer appropriate look.  For instance, leather shorts (or a skirt like this) with a tank or white pants with a grey sleeveless blouse.  I used to poke fun at my mom's wardrobe which is chronically black and white, and now, it seems I'm following directly in her footsteps!
