Black on Black

It's a rare occasion that I would wear an all black look - even rarer in the summer, but something about the mix of the black satin with the cream leather and gold metal, just seemed to beg for more black.

I think it's good to occasionally step outside your normal style and try something a little different, even if for only a day. My abundance of white will return soon enough.

  12. Textures definitely make a difference when you're doing a monochrome look. So chic and such a contrast against the casual feel of the beach.

  13. I do love all black looks! In summer is looks so nice with golden accessories and a bit of a suntan (which I am still missing due to our weather).
    Love your sunglasses!

  29. Of course, you know my thoughts on black on black, so you know I couldn't feel anything but love for this look. But black satin shorts? It's so cliche that I almost can't say it but - I die. They are too fabulous. Especially with that beautiful studded Linnea Pelle bag beside them!

  35. Oh man, I love an all black look any time of the year. It's the perfect canvas to show off gold jewelry like you have done.

  37. It's also rare for me to wear head-to-toe black especially in the Summer. But between you & Alison from Get Your Pretty On who also wore black shorts with a black tee & heels last week, I am going to try this look on my own. I even have Black Satin Shorts. Your cream+gold accessories are perfect with this.

  40. Very chic look! I think the black tee makes your necklace stand out even more and like how you lightened up the look with lighter accessories and shoes.
