Why I'm loving black this summer

While it may be the unpopular opinion, I don't love black. When I walk into a store, my eyes usually dart right past racks of black and on to colors, prints, and white - my favorite color. Even in my own closet, black gets lost. During the winter I often gravitate towards cozy greys, but in the summer I fall in love with bright colors again and again.

So what is with my sudden black love affair? I haven't even worn a single white dress this summer, and I'm on record having said that if my closet was nothing but white dresses I'd be perfectly happy. Perhaps it has to do with a saturation point - I really couldn't justify getting this jumpsuit in white, as I've already got piles of white eyelet in my closet. Black eyelet on the other hand was unexploited. Once I put it on, it just felt right. Simple, understated, freeing of worry that I might get coffee stains, loving how much less pronounced wrinkles became, and throwing caution to the wind that wearing black in the summer would make me hotter.

I'm by no means done with white, but I'm enjoying this little love affair with black.

  6. It's a beautiful little black jumpsuit on you! I think there's something so classic about black so it definitely works for multiple seasons! :) I tend not to have a lot of black in my wardrobe, the dominant colour is certainly blue! but I do love the black pieces I have :)

    Hope that you have a great weekend ahead of you :)

  12. Love how easy it is to dress up or down black!

  13. Black is, of course, my favourite colour year round, with camel coming in a close second, so I am fully supportive of your new penchant for that shade. That said, because I do wear it year round, I also understand very well how it can be impractical for the summer months, particularly when the temperatures get extreme. But to me, it's always worth it, because it just looks so fabulous - and this jumpsuit is absolutely no exception. While it would, of course, be lovely in white, too, the black makes such a statement.

  14. The black eyelet is definitely unexpected and so chic!

  15. I like it, it fits well and the black eyelet is a treat to look at. Also the backdrop .. once again it looks like you're in Europe, maybe in Florence?

  16. I've also worn more black this summer than ever before - so strange! I've got a black summer dress and a black body suit that I've been wearing non-stop!

  17. Such a classic casual look indeed! Love it!
